Last week, two of El Paso Mayor John Cook's aides were in Cleveland checking out the state-of-the-art Cedar Point amusement park -- and a roller coaster that's for sale there.

That's what he SAID, huh? LOL! Clearly some folks on the council are NOT enamored of Pat Thomson for some reason...
And as for the coasters, IMHO the only possible ones that could be relocated would be the Corkscrew and Wildcat, and I have a hard time picturing them taking out the Corkscrew.
Unless it's Junior Gemini or Woodstock Express?
If they truly mean that one of CP's coasters is for sale **cough**DT**cough** rather than a Geauga Lake coaster, this would could be a very interesing development. I wonder if Kinzel wants to rid the park of the 2nd of two mistakes he's quoted as making during his tenure at Cedar Point. (the other being not buying Geaga Lake before Six Flags did)
If they are talking aboiut Geauga Lake - I could definitely see Head Spin being for sale!
CCMR could be a possibility. I would mention Mean Streak, but who the hell would want that? ;)

Corkscrew is pretty much a symbol of the park and I'm pretty sure a lot of people would be upset if it suddenly disappeared.
But who knows if one of Cedar Point's rides is really for sale. I've it best to take most mass media news articles like this with a grain of salt. They've messed up the truth often enough in the past to make me wary of believing every word.
Maybe if Wildcat is for sale, it will be replaced with one of the many thrilling, yet compact coasters that are offered by many designers, such as the Euro-Fighter or a spinning coaster.
ChesseOn A Stick!
And as for Corkscrew, sure it is a symbol, but what if they put something in its place that had the same corkscrews over the midway, would people complain then?

More people ride Iron Dragon than Millennium Force.
They're both still Top Ten CP rides. For the last time: They aren't for sale.
...and when was the first time you said they weren't for sale? Then again, we all could be missing the boat on this one, they are probably looking to purchase Magnum.. with it sinking and all.
