Old Arrow shuttle for sale

Monday, June 24, 2002 9:49 AM
I realize that this page is outdated, but either way:
http://www.aimsintl.org/ridesource.htm
Arrow shuttle loops built in 1977 are:
Thunderbolt Express at Camden (not operating)
Afterburner at Funspot Park (operating)
Black Widow at Six Flags Graveyard (not operating)

Since the ad was made in 1998, could Premier Parks been wanting to ditch the Widow to make room, had no takers, and "stored" it instead?

Could Camden be finally ready to cut their losses and sell the Tbolt Express?

Could Funspot be in the mood for a better coaster in it's place?

Given the price of 250k, I would guess either Premier Parks wanted to get ride of a ride fast, or Camden wants some money for a ride they can't afford to repair.

Let the games begin :)

Ya I think its the one at Funspot, because Thunderbolt Express is a peice of crap, and Six Flags Graveyard rides just sit there.

That link gives me problems......SFA's Python also sits awaiting a home. Last I checked, Camden's would make a better parts source than Old Indy's, since it is in worse condition. I'd hate to see my Screamin' Demon never run again, but it doesn't look promising. Afterburner is running great (never thought I'd say that again!), so I doubt that FS wants to pitch theirs. As for the empty 600' stretch of land in my backyard......:)

Fun Spot seems to be expanding since the managment changed hands. They added 4 rides this year including a kiddie coaster. There are some good things going on there.

In addition to the rides Fun Spot Park also has 2 Bengal Tigers this year in the zoo area and they have all kinds of room for new rides, so I don't think they would sell it just to make room. I visited during the second day of operation for this year. I Can't imagine selling the Afterburner after the work that's been put in to it.

Who is Premier Parks? Time to let go... that hasn't been their name in a very long time now.

The ad was made in 1998, they were Premier Parks at the time.
