Possible removal of Skyscraper from Valleyfair!

Wednesday, January 23, 2008 12:33 AM
It makes the most sense to send it to a park like CP. You would want an upcharge ride like this to go to one of the busiest parks in the chain. The most likely reason Skyscraper would be leaving VF is that it no longer generated the additional revenue to justify it's existence in the park. I cannot imagine it could ever generate that much additional revenue at a small park like MiA. CP would seem like the best fit, or at least one of the other larger parks. I will miss it.

The next question is if VF will be offering upgrades to their season passes like in previous years. Last year they charged an additional $40 upgrade for unlimited Challenge park usage all season, and an additional $40 upgrade for unlimited rides on RipCord and Skyscraper. There is no word yet concerning plans for this season.

I assume this is going into VertiGo's former footprint?

^^No pictures? ;) I don't think I was ever at the park while Vertigo was there. If I was, I certainly don't remember seeing it. Where in Challenge park was it located?

I was also told that it is in the parking lot at Cedar Point for what it's worth.

I think it's safe to say that it's sitting in the parking lot at CP.

So is THIS where vertigo was located?

Here is an Unmarked photo for someone to correct me if I'm wrong.

No, Vertigone was on the other side. You can still see the three foundations.

Here you go. The circles are roughly about where the towers were.

Parker17, you nailed it. Skyscraper looks as if it is currently resting at Cedar Point.

What was that sarcastic comment that Jeff made about the Skyscraper being moved to CP several weeks ago? Something about "If it's on the Intertoob [sic], it must be true? (except written like it was done by a 14 year-old MySpace user).

So Jeff, did you not believe it, or were you already in the know?

^ Why does it matter? I mean really now.

But since we're bringing up Jeff's old quotes about the Skyscraper at Valleyfair, I must contribute, too:

"No way in hell am I getting on that thing."

Sorry JP, you know I will never let you live that one down :).
