Kip...

I was ALL OVER Space Probe 7!!! In fact, it was my favorite drop ride until I rode Blue Fall last year. It was incredible. So well themed, ride ops stayed in character and did a great job! I still have my onride photo somewhere! I put it on my 'senior page' in my yearbook! I'd be really pissed if they scraped it. :x Last I heard they were trying to save it but who knows.

Looking into our Europe Trip it looks like Gardaland has a "mini" version. Same theming and enclosed top, but only about 150' tall. I hope it's as good!

Here is the current deal with Wonderland.

Bush Beast is going under servailance in terms of a "Local Heritage Order" which will restrain it from going anywhere.

Beastie is still there, Which I doubt will go anywhere. I believe it will get knocked down. No Doubts about that one.

Probe last I heard about the Probe was that there hasn't been much interest in it, so a British Company which deals with the sales of used rides will be looking after it. This is however a rumor.

If you are ever going to talk about Wonderland on the forums, let it be good. If it is not good, like how crap the place was, take it somewhere else. I am sick and tired of people making fun of the land. Makes me really upset and angry.

I think the new name is a lot better than Visionland, which always reminded me of a theme park for eye doctors. I hope they don't rely too much on their concert series alone to bring in the people though. Much like Wild Adventures, the concert brings them in, the loads of rides is what will keep them their though. Visionland, err Alabama Adventure, is still lacking a lot in the rides department. Throwing all those other attractions in will definitely make it an "Alabama" Adventure, especially with the stock car racing. Git R Done!
All clear....

Dispatch, enjoy your ride.

All I know is that this park hasn't seemed to do much right in the past few years. They can't seem to market themselves if their lives depended on it!

All these name changes and park re-structuring is just going to confuse people. Hell, I'm confused and I've BEEN to the damn park loads of time!!!
