Rode it on the 25th. Yeah, so it kicked my ass, but it wasn't all THAT bad. Then again, I unbelievably (to some) found Gwazi Lion in the front seat very fun. :?r

I rode Python in July 2002 when I was there. Identical to Knott's old Corkscrew; short, but a fun ride nonetheless.

Whether it stays or goes is apparently up in the air, so it seems. I can understand taking it out. It is old, and newer rides have certainly supassed it in terms of thrills. And the space could be used for something new, though I'm not sure a playground is the best use.

Is it possible that they just have a bunch of older maps left in stock and they aren't rotating them out?

^ It does seem odd that some people have a map that shows Python cleared out, and others have maps that still show Python. My guess is that you're right, Robb.

I've seen the same thing at SFMM, too. They've given me maps from the previous year because they had 'em left over.

Robb is spot on, maybe Busch found a stock of older maps from Summer 2006 and they are trying to get rid of them before putting the newer Fall/Winter 2006 maps out.

I think this basically confirms Python may head to a third-world country or the scrap heap.

Isn't Tampa a third-world country? ;)
