Finding a Transient Coaster

Wednesday, May 10, 2000 6:33 AM
IN the late 70s CIRCUS WORLD theme park opened in Haines City, FL (near Orlando)... Pretty non-descript park save for it's Out & Back Woodie called the Flying Tiger.After financial problems, the place closed and was eopened in the 80s as Boardwalk & Baseball, redubbing the coaster the Florida Hurricane... After more financial instability the place closed in 88 or 89. I've heard that the coaster was sold to a small midwestern park. Can anybody tell me where it is? What is is now named? Is it operating? And most importantly...is it the SAME layout and can I add it to my Track Record list? (And is there a definitive site that tracks the movement of re-located rides?) Thanks and happy riding...

The coaster you speak of is now the Arkansas Twister at Magic Springs. Yes it's operating. It was SBNO for the past year or two, but has reopened recently.

Thanks for the info... I had thought I had read it was in Arkansas, but hadn't seen it listed here yet... (Maybe it will get "on the list" again soon...)
