Old Indiana fenced in so guy can kill animals.

Sunday, September 22, 2002 6:13 PM

Oddly I drove through Thorntown today, naturally all I thought about was the defunct Old Indiana park. I guess its not going to be a nature preserve, but a killing park for some rich guy.

Well maybe the rides currently there will finally get a real home. Either that or they'll rust someplace else.

You can hear the laughter, you can hear the mighty roar. From the brickyard down in Indy to the white Chicago shore. It's a rollin', twistin', turnin' and might we both suggest. You get you fanny ridin' on the Cornball Express!

This looks more like a castle wall than a fence from looking at the picture, so wonder it is costing 100,000 dollars to build.

Rock 'n' Roller Coaster was supposed to be for SFA! What happened?!! I don't think those coasters are suitable to operate again.

Big whoop, and a cow or a pig have a fighting chance?

It's all whether you kill it or someone else does.

Only vegetarians have a right to complain.

All I need is 4.5 million bucks and a half a mile long sliver of land and maybe someone could build me my very own Shivering Timbers. ;)

Coasterpunk beat me with the nugent Joke.

If you lived in Michigan you might understand. The Nug has a "killing park" off of I-94 near Grass lake.

I live just south of Jackson. I know of his preserve. When I was in High School he frequented his kids sporting events. They went to Hanover,

As for Grass Lake our Cross Country arch enemies. The only thing standing between me and a 1996 Cross Country State Championship.

I know this may be a bit off but here goes anyhow: I wonder if the new owner is going to sell off any of the things that he is going to demolish. More than anything, I'm talking about like turnstyles and things of that nature. I don't know much about collectibles from amusement parks but it would seem that there would be a "killing" in that area. (pun sorta intended) I think it was be neato-burrito to have something like that from an old amusement park in my home. (as long as it wasn't just flat out too big)

From the pictures on RCDB it looks to me that none of the rides were A complete, B fit to operate, every ride appeared to be missing quite a few important peices, the only one that appereard to be there was the black widow. Could six flags have started construction on the place and that is why most of the ride parts(aside from most track) is missing, or were the rides sent there to be scraped? It looks like many of thoes coaster track peices were just cut with a roatary saw into peices to transport!

Maybe the rides are headed to Houston.

Is it just me or is a "preserve" meant to "preserve"?

Killing animals is hardly preserving them...slaughter would be more appropriate

Waiting for the CP announcement to be made so that about 1000+ posts will be made complaining about it.

I don't see the fun in hunting in an enclosed area unless it's super huge, at least a few thousand acres. I guess it would be nice taking your kid there so he could shoot somthing. To me it would take the fun out of hunting, if I hunted and there were lots of animals running around to shoot at. I'd sooner go in the woods and wait. From that article it sound like they lost most of the heard so it may be good.

I never got the point of those pay fishing places either. They load the ponds up with way too many fish. You cast your line and basicly snag a fish. Some of them you have to keep everything you catch too.

As for the slaughtering of animals, their slaughterd by the 1000's everyday. Were all are just desensitized from it. We go to the store and buy ground beef, steaks, chicken and whatever else without thinking it was once an animal. We just see the packages they come in and grab it. Meat is meat wether it comes from a cow, deer, chicken, or whatever else.

Like Cartman said on South Park, "Look at that calf, it looks delicious!"
