Hey, which park do you guys think has had the most removed coasters in it's history? I think Riverside (now SFNE) has had the most, recently. Black Widow, Rolling Thunder, and the Little Twister. I'm sure other parks have had more. Which ones?

1 of them is closed. Cedar Point has had a total of 2 Wild Cat rides one is still there the other was moved to Valleyfair! and is now someware in New Jersey. ------------- Coastercameron Mommy, Chang Made Me Sick!!!
Cedar Point had several other defunct coasters. There was the Cyclone(72 foot woodie), the Switchback Railway(CP's first Ride), Three-Way Figure Eight Roller Toboggan(woodie), The Racer(previous ride, only renovated), The Leap the Dips Scenic Railway(woodie where Blue Streak is now Located) , Leap Frog Railway(Renovated Leap the Dips), Wild Mouse(Wooden wild mouse), the other Wildcat(Similar to persent day Wildcat, only smaller), Jumbo Jets(where DT stands today)
So technically it would be 9 except two those were renovated... this concludes today's history lesson. ------------- ***Why can't all parks have a Millennium Force?***
If I am correct, Opryland (defunct park) in Nashville, TN had 5 roller coasters until they removed the park. They had an enclosed Vekoma, a Vekoma inverted, an Arrow mine train, an Intamin bobsled, and another Arrow looping coaster. ------------- Todd Steffey ~*Favorites*~ # 1 ~ Alpengeist - BGW # 2 ~ Volcano - PKD # 3 ~ American Eagle - SFGAm
If you count Coney Island as a whole it definatly has the most. Thunderbolt, Tornado, Pippin, Loop the Loop, Flip-Flap, Switchback Railway, Figure-8, Steeplechase. That's 8 all ready, and I know I don't have all of them by a long shot.
Are you serious about removing Corkscrew, that's CP's definative ride, more so than Raptor, Magnum, or MF. CP, the park didn't remove those coasters, the coaster's owners removed coaster because they weren't profitable. Remember all of CP's attractions were owned by differant people until the 50's. Also, the depression caused a lot of coasters to get demolished, as did WW2, and the Prohibition. Also, some coasters were simply demolished because they were obsolete and too common, like the Figure-8 and switchback Railway. Why would CP demolish coaster when they still have lots of room?
Blue Streak, a family/kiddie coaster now Green Slime Mine Ride at PGA, and Bavarian Beetle, a Galixi style coaster, were also removed from PKI in addition to The Bat, the famous suspended coaster, and Screamin Demon, the first operational-for-public shuttle loop relocated to Camden Park as Thunderbolt Express(supposedly under repair and to open in 2002). All were removed in the 80s.
