It looks like a used Schwarzkopf shuttle called the Bullet is for sale. Does anyone know if this is the coaster at Flamingo Land? If so, why would they want to get rid of this interesting ride?

Yes, It definately looks like Flamingoland's coaster.
I Wish my homepark would jump on this perfect fit.

Sweet, I'll buy it for my backyard. (if I only had the money!!!)

I believe The Bullet has a lot of operational restrictions as a result of its noise levels. It only runs from like 3:00-4:00 pm on odd-numbered days... or something like that. :) *** Edited 1/31/2004 11:06:12 PM UTC by Olsor***

I hope it finds a home... I've heard a lot of good stuff about the forces it produces.

Wow! That looks like "Weiner Looping." (Yes, it's a freaky name) If it is what I think, I went on one of these when Circus World was open in the Orlando area. It was a crazy ride!! And the forces that it created were huge! I'm glad that I went on it back when I had the chance.

You are correct. The coaster that run at Circus World is indeed Bullet. The coaster was purchased and moved to England where it was slightly modified. I never got the chance to ride it in Florida but it was quite intense in England.

**cough** perfect for Knoebels **cough**
I would guess that coaster doesn't take up much more, if any more room than Whirlwind... ;)
I've often wondered from time to time, how to write good poetry- and make it all... Work.

wow- what an intense little coaster!
I have never seen one like it. Those helixes do look like decent drain your brains!

I just wonder what the bank will say when I ask for a loan? ;-)

Yeah, I always thought those little Schwartzkopfs looked like really awesome coasters. It would make an excellent addition to any smaller parks. I gotta agree with the Knoebel's comment!
Mildly amused since 2003.
