A hundred bucks? I can totally find cheaper firewood than that.

Yes, but can you find firewood with a loop?

That would actually burn too.

$25 for a bolt?

Much as I loved the ride, I'll pass.

I got one for another ride torn down in recent years for free. Jealous? I didn't think so.

With enough lighter fluid, anything will burn.

The plaque would probably burn nicely.

I hope this money is going to a charitable cause.

We here at Kings Island now offer a service in which you can get your face bashed in by ten giant musclemen, and as an added bonus, we will sell you a plaque with an actual piece of the brass knuckles or handcuffs, or baseball bat that they used to kick your butt with.

The plaque has to have at least some cheesy words such as "I survived Son of Beast" for that price.

I had the same thought. I haven't seen any mention of a charity yet though.

I was hoping they would dump the pieces in the gulf and make a new barrier reef. You know like what they do with the old ships.

Somewhere around here I've got a bolt from Sonny - IIRC, it's about 18", galvanized, hex-head...probably about 6-8 bucks with the nut, in contractor quantity. $25 is quite the mark-up if it's not for charity.

A piece of track -> $99.99

Structural bolt -> $24.99

Watching them TAER IT DOWN -> priceless

For everything else, there's Mastercard.

People were apparently contacting the park asking if anything would be made available. I'm not sure those same people would pay these prices. But, there are interested parties that likely sparked this situation.
