MGM park in Las Vegas closed to public, converts to group facility

Posted Friday, March 9, 2001 3:43 AM | Contributed by supermandl

Citing competition and a need to make better use of land, MGM announced that Grand Adventures will no longer be a general admission park. Most rides have been liquidated, and the park will be used for group outings and "team building" functions.

According to Amusement Today magazine, the same company that auctioned off the rides from Opryland has been hired to auction off the rides from MGM. They say that they're worth $27.5 Million, and if someone comes up with that amount before the end of the auction that they'll end it early. I checked my wallet and seem to be a bit short.

Does anyone have any pictures on their website of this park and the arrow/intamin rollercoaster? I would like to see what this park contained and what it was like. Thanks for the help.

Well, what they want and what they will end with are far apart. The only ride worth any hard money id the flume. The rapids ride, they should keep, as it will need totally rebuilt again. The rides that are staying are what is worth something. The rest of the rides are Chance flats and other various types. probably will end up in South America or the Middle East.
