Or perhaps do what others have done and start a new company. I'm just kinda surpized he didnt sell. Maybe there were just no buyers now. *** This post was edited by willthethrill on 7/18/2002. ***

Could this mean a serious decline in wooden coaster construction? Perhaps the Wooden Renaissance is over. Oh the Humanity!!! Agony! *** This post was edited by willthethrill on 7/18/2002. ***

Well there's always GCI which has made some fabulous woodies over the past 6 years and maybe some of the CCI employees may form their own company or even merge with GCI.

It is a real loss though because CCI has designed some great woodies as well as GCI and at least we still have all the great rides that they've already produced still for our enjoyment.

That is some bad news. The Dinn has done a lot for the amusement park business and I hope Denise pops up again in the future.
