I wonder how much the Scooters will go for.
After looking that site further, they sold an Arrow coaster for $55,000. Such a Deal!

It all depends on who shows up and who's interested, They might go for a thousand, Who knows?
Chuck, who seen about $20,000 dollars in wood coaster track pins go for $50 at the CCI auction. Nobody in actual park buisness was actually there. I bet they got 500 just for scrap prices for em.
The track bender however was sold to CCI's forman at 20 grand. He's since done hades and Voyage with it :) and it was home built by Charlie Dinn.
Chuck, who'll have to dig up my auction report sometime. I still got one the only two bench steel wooden coaster tub on the planet!
I wonder if that girl who made pouncing tiger is interested in making it a roller?
I might go to that auction and see what happens. I could come across a good deal! I missed one on ebay, a guy was selling a Hershell kiddie coaster for only $800 but I ended up not bidding (I should have)
Chuck, who knows you could get the flyers for a few hundred, it's all in who's there and interested in what.
No idea what I'd do with them after I got them...

That is Paul Bunyan Amusement Park in Bemidji, MN that is on Norton's website. That park closed in 2003.
It is not Paul Bunyanland in Brainerd, MN.
And yes, I have never seen a drop ride like that!
Paul Bunyanland has alot of unique rides! Don't miss this park!
Talked with the manager for awhile the day we went to Erieview....Norton apparently does most of the auctions involving amusement rides/parks...be on the looked for a TR coming your way...(all parks bulletin, hehe, APB).
and while I'd love to ride some of these goodies at your residences (Matt, Michael, Sara, etc.)....I'd still KINDA prefer they go to parks where they could be enjoyed by MANY more people.
Of course, if no parks are buying...then by ALL means, save these rides. If I had the land (and the money, LOL), that train would be mine - all mine... :)

You still have Zoidberg.... You ALL have Zoidberg! (V) (;,,;) (V)
I'm with gator- the rides should be in a park, unless no park wants them, in which case private ownership is a LOT better than a dumpster!
I would like to see some park pick up the Fright Zone stunts and cars for addition to their park. Wouldn't it be nice if Conneaut Lake could get them and then DAFE and others could help with the cost of setting the ride up. First, this would draw in much of the former Erieview business. Second, this would bring in more people from Pittsburgh (the ride used to be at West View). Third, this would put CLP in a better competitive position vs Waldameer which will soon be adding a big wooden coaster.
