Currently Unused/Diassmebled Coasters and Rides

Postby GAcoaster » Fri Mar 18, 2005 8:42 am

This was mentioned in another thread, and I was curious what was going on (and didn't want to take the thread off topic), so I'll ask here:

Does anyone know what the status is of Tidal Wave/Greazed Lightning from PGA? I understand it's still sitting in the SFMW parking lot, but did Six Flags buy it, or are they still holding it for the Schwarzkopf Family to take back to Germany (that was the last rumor I heard about it), or what?

Along the same lines, does anyone know what happened to the Shockwave trains from SFGAm? I've heard at least one went to SFMM, but does anyone know about the others?

I figure someone on here has to have some "insider" knowledge. :wink:

2 of the Shockwave Trains were sitting next to Scream at SFMM. There's a good chance the 3rd was sitting around somewhere also, out of view from the GP.

As for Poor Tidal Wave...who knows...all I know is it's rotting in that parking lot and I've seen ACEers steal parts. :x

That is unacceptable. If you are "preserving" coasters, then why the hell would you cannabalize the damn things. This makes me very angry. :evil:

Good Question.
maybe they think 'preserving' means saving them from a garbage dumps furnace...

Six Flags sold off the Old Indiana property. I would imagine those have all been scrapped by now, but does anyone know for sure?

It's a pity to see them all like that...I'd love to see someone build Old Skool World, with all the Arrow Shuttle Loops, and Corkscrews and the INTAMIN Bobsled, and a couple of mine trains, and any other old coaster you can name. Some of those are great rides... :(

Well, I can help out with a couple of the rides. The looping star at bobbejaanland is still on the parking lot, having been replaced with an awesome gerstlauer x95. The son of schwarzkopf was going to buy it, renovate it and then sell it again. However he has not been able to find appropriate funds for the operation. You can still see the parts when you ride the "air race", the most tame suspended swinging coaster ever.

SFGAM's Shockwave track got turned into scrap metal but the trains are at SFMM next to the queue to Scream!.

Greased Lightning is in SFMW's parking lot, rotting to it's death. There are so many parts missing that it is impossible to reassemble it.
