I guess we'll see what happens today ;)
This just seems too... strange... to believe. Now the question: Where the heck would they put it?

Now, if they ARE concerned about the perception they have left in NE Ohio after closing Geauga Lake, saving the historical coaster might be one way to placate those folks...and pull them over to Sandusky as well.
To take it a step further...what if Cedar Point allowed ACE to build their museum on the vacant patch of land at the tip of the causeway (parking lot end)? Then, the coaster could start there...head down the edge of the marina, turn around and head back. Perhaps the museum could operate as a joint venture with CP staffing and running it in the summer and shoulder seasons (new place to process those Season Passes) and ACE running it during the winter on weekends...or something along those lines?
Yes, I know...it is all very far fetched. But, I'm an "outside the box" kind of thinker. *** Edited 4/23/2008 3:05:35 PM UTC by wahoo skipper***
I'm sorry, I just don't see this happening, but I would be very very happy to be proven wrong on this one.

That's twice today, wahoo. Are you auditioning to play me in the movie? ;)
Seriously, it's the unlikeliest of possibilities. I can see where it would go a long way in smoothing out alot of ruffled feathers in NE Ohio. Probably not enough of them to make it a viable business decision though... :(

How about this idea: line it up next to Blue Streak, race them, and change the names to Big Streak and Blue Dipper! :)

But, I can't think of anywhere else that makes sense to have a roller coaster museum than in the same town as the second oldest amusement park in the country and where there also happens to be located a Merry-Go-Round museum.
Again, I'm a dreamer. In fact, I would say the industry that we all enjoy needs MORE dreamers.
