The park needs a good looping coaster. If it is by Vekoma, Intamin, B&M, or anyone! They need a new coaster with inversions. The only coaster there that goes upside down is the Corkscrew. If I also remember, they have a looping starship kind of ride, nothing else. :( felt sorry for the place :(


They have been rumored to get a B&M Floorless or Invert for several years now so I think that the park has been trying to get a mega-looper; however, the plans just haven't come into fruition yet.

But as others have said, Valleyfair's coaster lineup looks pretty solid right now anyway.

^ Acutally yeah, if you have a facebook, add Six Flags Great Advanture. They have put up a few pictures of the deconstruction, which they aren't wasting time.

Thanks for the photo update. I'm always amazed about how quickly these things are taken down considering how much time was spent to construct them.

It would take longer if they were trying t do it so as to relocate the ride, but since it is being taken down for scraps, they aren't having to use such care, although it is interesting that it looks like there are some whole sections that weren't torn to smaller pieces. I wonder if there is a reason for that?

Well, I know that several Arrow coasters have needed replacement parts over the years so maybe they could be sold to parks to help keep their Arrow coasters around a little longer.

Perhaps they are going to add the old loops to the Safari for the monkey's to play on?

Corkscrews are crunched and half of the batwing as well. The whole 2nd half is an inversion away from being completely gone.

That makes me tingle with joy.

That back half of the ride made for one of the funniest onride photo sections ever, at least for those who weren't riding.

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?
