No way i love Python i cant believe that they would do that.

I know that it sucks really bad but that is like a classic.

What are they going to replace it with. The closest thing that could fit in that area is a boomerang or something and i dont want that i want python

Kind of sad to see these pictures, I was just there last year.

Well they are not relocating it!

It looks like they bent up the tracks a lot!

I wonder if a small park would have been able to buy the ride or even have taken the ride off of bg's hands?

Just seems like a waste to just scrap it.

^ Take it off Busch Gardens hands? Amusement parks aren't charitable organizations built on the idea of philanthropy. They're businesses. Busch Entertainment is going to get a check for the valuable metal parts from Python that will soon be liquidated. I don't call that a waste. I'd call it recycling.

And honestly...ask yourself. What kind of growing park will drop good money on a two-corkscrew dinosaur-age coaster from the 70's? Arrow Corkscrew coasters were SO 30-years ago.

^ Del Grosso's mayhaps?

But that was an ENTIRELY different ride, and was worth saving. 55K, I doubt you'd get that much from the recycling plant....not that I would know what steel goes for, or how much that PoS weighed.... ;)

P.S. As far as "What good put they put in that space"...well, I could really use a M-S or Gerstlauer spinning coaster... ;)

Or *something* along the lines of a couple decent flats... :)

I'm surprised a company like Busch would have a gay play. They just don't seem that liberal to me. It'll be interesting to see how parents react.

Camden Park can't afford it, but it would be a good addition for them. If they had the room, of course. *** Edited 11/30/2006 9:21:39 PM UTC by Coasterbuzzer***

Dude, please grow up and choose another word to use. There are quite a few gay people who post here including me. Anytime you use "gay" as a put down you are insulting me and possibly others as well.

gay plays are fun, hopefully it will have nudity, BGT is sorely lacking in that department.

Every time I've been to BGT, all the animals were unclothed. And sans paint, Gwazi's supports are nekkid.
