Well, it's official:(....
"In a brief email sent through his representative, the owner wrote: "I am the owner of THE BIG DIPPER (sic) roller coaster in Aurora, Ohio. I have determined that the deadline for the sale of The Big Dipper cannot be met. I have decided to demolish the Dipper and end the existence of this wonderful roller coaster. This is a painful but necessary decision."
The deadline had been set for Sept. 15.
Very sad indeed. I hope someone steps up to the plate at the last min, and saves this classic.
You gave me decades of fun.
This is already being discussed in the News Forum.
