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.

But hey, it was still good for a chuckle...like this one.
Who cares with how many people ride a given ride, ridership has nothing to do with the symbolic inversions over the midway.
Sure, it does! Especially when they're maintaining a older mid-size coaster of the same variety that other parks--sister parks included--have plowed into scrap.
I honestly can't see anything being removed from CP but stranger things have happened.
your logic doesn't add up. The article says it'sa coaster for sale. There's no way the press could get something like that wrong.
oh, and, uh, just in case... ;)

But leave Wildcat alone! That coaster rocks!

Look at how Kennywood and Idlewild coexist. There's a reason that there's no B&M speeder on all the land they have at Idlewild.
If they truly want two parks that don't compete with eachother that much, and if they truly want GL to be a family park, I'd lose X-Flight, Head Spin, and/or Dominator.
Out of the three, I'd want to keep the B&M in the CF family. The Vekomas are obviously going to be trouble over the long run, and I'd rather sell them off than keep them in the family.
I don't see Cedar Point selling ANY of their coasters. They need to try to keep the world record, afterall. ;-)
Wildcat is very popular, and Corkscrew just looks too pretty and photogenic. NONE of those coasters are going anywhere anytime soon.
Some say they won't sell a coaster, even if ridership is low, because that coaster might be asthetically appealing. You've got to be kidding me!
This may surprise some people.
I'd get rid of BOTH....but I never had a use for a Boomerang....would a first-gen drop *count* as a coaster in El Paso? ;)
If you live in Texas, it may as well be.
(Edited for geographical bug---in other words, it works both ways. Utah? Texas? Who cares?)*** This post was edited by Brian Noble 8/9/2005 11:44:39 AM ***
