TAER IT DOWN!!!1111 lol

I don't understand why people loved BD, but I would like to see it saved for those who have a soft spot in their heart for it, nonetheless.

I have already accepted that CLP needs to close down already, if just to spare me the annoyance of having to read about how it needs help all the time. lol

Maybe Dick Knoebel can entertain us with it until the seemingly doomed (yet seemingly amazing!) Flying Turns opens. This was a joke, only a joke, please don't attack me for saying it!

If Pepsi would give them enough money to move this coaster to Conneaut, I think the park would flourish.

And all this time it seemed like such a well thought-out plan...

Sadly, at this point even I agree - might be time to let the ride "die with (some) dignity"... :(
