Mamoosh said: Ah, but perhaps Del Grossos is smarter than we think? For a lot less money than something new they get to add a coaster that, at least to people in the marketplace, will be new and unique. And it should be the tallest ride at the park and a good way to advertise to the folks over on I-99 as they drive by.
Indeed. I was just checking out the Revolution pics on RCDB and was thinking what a great signature ride it will be for DelGrosso's.
I'm not suggesting that DelGrosso's made a bad move. I'm pretty sure this will be a good thing for the park. All I was saying is that they're a small park adding an old Arrow coaster when most of the small parks that added an old Arrow coaster a decade or so ago have since rid themselves of those things.
Having RIDDEN both Python and Libertyland's Revolution, seems VERY reasonable to me to relocate the one to DelG's (they're VERY excited about it, and should be), while also turning the BGT ride into beer cans... ok, recycled steel, but beer cans just sounded funnier.
In fact, when BGT rumors were swirling pre-announcement, I was *suggesting* Python's removal for the new installation. AWFUL Arrow coaster, not redeemable as a ride...other than credit laps for friends, I haven't had a reason to ride it in QUITE awhile...
