If I remember correctly, the Gravity Group went out and evaluated the coaster a while back and said they could salvage it.
Wood-7 Steel-57 Liquid-2 Total-66 (CoasterFanatics banner stopped working for some reason)
Top 5 Steel: 1. Millennium Force - 2. Maverick - 3. California Screamin - 4. Raging Bull - 5. Space Mountain: De la Terre a la Lune
Top 5 Wood: 1. Viper - 2. Blue Streak - 3. Screamin Eagle - 4. American Eagle - 5. Mean Streak (With the only other one Ive ridden being Gwazi. I seriously need to ride more wooden coasters)

There is no such thing as a donkey punch.

If there is any chance to salvage it they def should...I thought this was a very underrated woodie...It has an interesting and custom layout with nice pops of airtime

People I talked to who visited the park were always pleasantly surprised by this coaster...it would be GREAT to ride again somewhere in the future

Now SSA wants to buy the land straight out.

http://www.abc26.com/news/local/jazzlan ... ?track=rss

Southern Star Amusement Inc. is making an offer of $12.5 million to purchase the former Jazzland/Six Flags site from the City of New Orleans. This offer is for the entire 226 acre site, complete with all improvements and the additional acreage being obtained from Six Flags.

This offer, when combined with the $3 million the city will receive from the Six Flags settlement, should satisfy the existing HUD loan debt. With the upcoming budget shortfall the city is now facing. We feel that it is better for the city and its citizens to use their revenues to support both the police and fire services, rather than continuing to service this debt on a non performing property.

All the power to them. I will try to visit if they ever open because it won't be open for long.

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

Atleast they are trying and not giving up. Got to give them credit for that.

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

Well I think we know they should be taken seriously now.

If Megazeph could move and I could finally experience it I'll be done with the New Orleans location.

Uhm...they couldn't make a $500,000 good faith payment...and now they have 12.5 million dollars?

That sounds exactly like a deal the idiotic mayor of New Orleans would take... :lmao:

That is a little odd but I'm going to remain optimistic and say that this deal goes through. Maybe they had good reasons for not paying the 500K.

^Is not having $500,000, a good enough reason for not making the payment?

Maybe they can relocate the former SFNO "on the moon."
