DelGrosso's and "Revolution"

Any word on the status of Libertyland's old "Revolution" coaster bought by DelGrosso's? RCDB still has it named as "Unknown" and "Underconstruction 2008". A visit to the park last season turned up no signs of it, not even a clear idea of where they might put the thing.

^IIRC, read somewhere that it's already been PPD til '09. This one, and SFAW's old Anton shuttle looper, are in competition to see which one sits longer before reconstruction. ;)

What about PGA's? Is that still in the parking lot at SFDK?

Hobbes: "What's the point of attaching a number to everything you do?"
Calvin: "If your numbers go up, it means you're having more fun."

PGA's was bought by SF, and parts of it, including the loop track, were used to replace worn out sections of SFKK's.
At Eastcoaster, a representative from DelGrosso's mentioned that the ride won't debut until '09 at the earliest. I wonder if the ride was a bad move and are considering another option. Seems to me an old Schwarzkopf looper would have made more sense.
They got it really cheap, so I imagine they're working a bit backward on the install if the purchase was rushed. In my opinion, they have one of the best loop-screws (at least that I've been on). Extremely smooth and re-rideable.
I am always driving past delgrosso's on my way to and from penn state. as of last week, the only coaster i spotted was the wild mouse. so i for one believe it will be PPD until 2009.

^How'd you miss the Wacky Worm, it's right along the road....and they let "adults" ride. ;)

^^I've always maintained that Revolution was one of the smoothest inverting Arrows pre-TT. I guess to me, this is the ride everyone else says Canyon Blaster is supposed to be. ;)
