Anybody here bid and win any items? Haunted Hotel cars would be cool to have. It makes me :( when a carousel is broken apart though. Shame MBP is gone.

I believe the horse that was sold was a display piece (either fiberglass or aluminum)especially at that price. It was not from the Herschell-Spillman machine, which was moved to B&C's new operation down the Strand.

I thought Haunted Hotel was on of the top 5 dark rides I've ridden. I'm happy to have had that opportunity.
Thankfully, THE carousel was saved.
