Instead of selling them I wish they could fit in SFMM Deja Vu's old spot or at least the batman side ;) and have Premier fix what ever problems they had to make SFGADV get rid of them,

Also I :lover: the concept SoCalCoasters

I know I'm copying and pasting from another site, but I stand by what I said:

That coaster is worth more as scrap metal. I mean I hate saying that, but it is. Getting this coaster up and running will require much more than just the purchase price and if somebody did have enough money to buy it, install it, and get it into good operating condition, it still would require a good chunk of money to maintain. LIMs are now a bit outdated and the whole system would need an overhaul to make it reliable. When you add it all up, it's just not worth the money.

It was a unique coaster, I have a lot of great memories riding it, but those memories are so scattered because of its operational record. They tried to save it with the infamous 'humps" but it still found a way to fail. Good luck to anyone that gets involved with it.

I eat bugs.

If there's a chance we'll see the ride (or half of it) again somewhere, I'm all for it. But what is the likelihood?

Is this related to past rumors of its sale, or is it an entirely new development?

I think we are all hoping that it is sold to a growing park, that has the sense to keep the LAPBARS!
