As I recall Busch bought one, the other one went to Neverland. If you haven't noticed. Paramount wasn't very rail friendly.It is a credit to the staff at Kings Island that the RR survived there. *** Edited 1/29/2008 3:28:59 AM UTC by Dutchman***

The Great America Scenic Railroad was not removed for a Vekoma. Stealth was designed around the railroad, in fact, the railroad was still running when Stealth was testing.

Thanks for clearing it up for those that don't know. It's a really common misconception. If people want proof, look at the support near the bottom of the first drop where you can see the structure was designed around the existing railroad.

It's almost silly that they kept the skyride while removing the railroad.
