While Python isn't a good coaster to us, it did have that nice airtime moment on the first drop, and was a great starter coaster for the little ones just brave enough to battle it. As long as Busch doesn't take out Scorpion all will be good. Enjoy your retirement, Python, where ever you may end up!
All clear....

Dispatch, enjoy your ride.

yes! Especially since Scorpion is a much better ride, and has a shorter height requirement! Schwarzkopf's should be every kids' first coaster!!

^That and any Zamperla Volare has to be a simulator of what it would be like to get raped in the butt.

BGT's Python Deconstruction:Photo TR.

Postby thefitness » Tue Nov 21, 2006 10:37 am

Hey Everyone.
My Dad and I went to BGT yesterday we rode everything except tiger,everything was running great except for Gwazi's one train operations.Sheikra was awesome as usual we rode in each row once.Crowds were pretty light!

Allright I walked through bushes,stood on poles,and risked dropping my camera from 200ft. up to get these pictures! Enjoy!And the pictures go from worst to best so make sure you look at all of them.
All that is left of Python sticking out over the trees
these signs and hanging flowers cover the construction wall.
They really tore up the area fast!
If you look close you can see Python's train
Poor Python=/
Off Kumba's Bridge
Poking out from over the wall
This is where I snuck through bushes=]
They are deffinately not taking it apart gently!
Here you can see the torn steel.
That rumored kiddie section better be good!
Only the lift and drop left.
No more double corkscrews
R.I.P. Python
On a happier note they are starting to decorate for Christmas!
Thanks for Reading!

Poor Ol Python. He served his days well! Im glad I got to ride it before it was torn apart like that...

Hmmm...Maybe I should send them a letter and a box too?

It's funny, you all are so attatched to this thing...must be nostagic or something. When I finally rode it, it was the worst coaster I've been on so far. Oh well, so they're going to move the kids section and put something else there. Hope it's something awesome.

Thanks for the photos, and thank YOU Python, for the week of suffering from lower back pain that you caused me after the fist corkscrew...ouch.
