I thought I'd rekindle the age-old argument of whether this park will come back or not with this: promises from Mr. Rogers himself.
- Funding is being secured. And so on and so forth. The money is coming from all over the place: federal grants and loans, investor money, HUD loans, and a few more sources.
- The Skycoaster (upcharge attraction) faces the possibility of being removed. It will most likely be replaced with another attraction.
- The two drop towers taken from the park, manufactured by S&S, will not be replaced. Something else is planned for the area.
- Martin & Vleminckx rides has both inspected and placed bids on contracts for refurbishing rides. The four roller coasters and two other "major rides" are repairable, and will reopen.
- The Jester will be turned around so it can run the course forwards for once. I would say, "You're welcome," but it's not 100% official the park will be back yet.
- Both the "Legend City" name and the theme/waterpark fusion concept are still in place. This will be a hybrid park like no other.
- One of the new attractions to be installed in the park is a custom-built train ride that features thematic elements. It will be located in the "Buzzard Creek" themed section of the park, wherever that will be (I'm assuming in the large space behind Jester, because that's the only place with room for it). I can't remember what theming will happen, but it'll basically be a story-as-you-ride concept.
And the most exciting news.....
- The MegaZeph (From the CCI Class of 2000) will go through an extensive rehab courtesy of M&V Rides. It will also be getting two brand new 12-car trains, costing a smidge under $600,000. The manufacturer, you ask? The Gravity Group. Yes, I'm talking Timberliners. Zephy could possibly be the first woodie to run them.
So take that with a grain of salt or a ton of bricks.
