Astroland rides sent to the auction block

Posted Monday, June 4, 2007 12:37 AM | Contributed by Outlane

Nearly two dozen rides from the famed but doomed Astroland amusement park went on the block yesterday, with some rides listed at the bargain-basement price of $12,500.

But the historic 42-year-old Astrotower, which provides a stunning view of the area, should fetch seven figures, according to Nashville-based amusement ride broker Ital International, which is handling the sales.

Gulp. :(

Why am I getting a strange feeling this is going to end like MSAP, SFAW, and MBP?

I am hoping the pirates landing amusement park thats being worked on for Calverton notices this auction. Perfect way to get rides for cheap. HEck maybe astrolands owners can partner with them.

^^^ Probably because it is. Astroland will close and the property will sit vacant while a long, drawn-out fight between the developer and the city takes place. Mark my words- Coney will end up a lot worse before it gets better. Then again, that might be the point.

I read an article in yesterday's paper about how the owner is so upset. What an idiot. After all, he decided to sell the place- what did he expect? I just found that amusing.

Yeah, I thought of that. If you voluntarily sell your property like that, you don't have much room to be upset about it.
