I never had the chance to visit this park, and it looks like I never will now.

Six flags operated this small park, and I believe it only had one coaster(I think it was an orient express type coaster).


what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.
Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.
I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

Six Flags sold the place in 2008, I believe.

The coaster was a Zamperla Powered coaster. The lead car featured a crazy big buffalo head. Apparently this was a production model. It was the only Buffalo Coaster in the USA.

One of the last parks I used actual film at. :)

Looks more like an outdoor FEC than a park... maybe they can sell their charm to another park.

I know this showed up today as a news link on Amusement Today's Extra Extra desktop edition, but I thought this park closed last year.

In addition to the Buffalo Coaster (yes, there are others, Drayrton had an extended version IIRC)....there was also a large dry-sack slide, a Tilt-a-Whirl, Crazy balloons I think, and the mother of all Scramblers....that thing ran long, and hard.

The main atraction to the park, though, was a huge indoor ball-play area...almost half the patrons in the park were inside on the day we visited (won tix at a Spring Fling event).

Did six flags own the park, or were they just managing the place?

If they owned the park, six flags is going to have a whole lot of used rides sitting around with Kentucky kingdom closing as well.

Like Gonch said, Six Flags sold the park in 2008. Zuma Holdings most likely owns whatever rides are on the property.

Never actually went inside the park but I passed by that creepy buffalo all the time walking up to the White Water entrance.


Welcome back, red train, how was your ride?!
