I just received some photos of the Schwarzkopf coaster that was at Circus World prior to Boardwalk and Baseball taking over the park. You can check out the photos here
I'm wondering if anyone has any first hand accounts of this coaster and what it was like. I hear its safety was questionable.

I can understand the safety concerns. By looking at how close the car came to the station platform, I would not take the term headchopper lightly.

That's kind of what I thought too when I saw the pics for the first time. What is the old property now a days?(B&B, CW)

Current Property is abandoned except for the baseball stadium.

But the Kansas City Royals don't play there anymore do they? All of us on here should chip in and buy the old property, and bring the glory back to it! Except, the last I heard, the Busch company owned the land! Ahhh, me and my dreams to own an amusement park! I do miss that park though!

I miss that great little park too. I went by it not to long ago and it saddened me to see the property vacant and the Imax theater rotting away. It was a great place but had a bad location in proximity to Disney World. Just think what it could have been made into if it were given a chance to flourish. With the coasters available today, it could have been big.

They moved that coaster in 1991. It's now called the Bullet at Flamingo Land Theme Park & Zoo in England.

Actually that looks like a pretty wicked ride!
