Does anyone know of where you could get like used coaster parts such as wheels and other items?
Used coaster parts are hard to find. I have only seen parts at the ACE Lone Star Coasterthon at Six Flags Over Texas. At the auction, I've picked up an old Texas Giant road wheel one year and a Flashback wheel another year. They usually have just a handful of iteams. They also had miscellaneous parts from the Mine Train and the old Skyscreamer as well. There may be other ACE events that feature auctions with parts. I just haven't been to any ACE event beyond Texas. I occassionally search on eBay, and nothing has every turned up. I've checked Craiglist in Ohio as well. A piece of Beast's lift hill chain was listed once.

I usually just wear a toolbelt to the park and 'borrow' what I'm after.
^Just put them in a water cup - no one will notice!
I volley for them.
The amusement park rises bold and stark..kids are huddled on the beach in a mist
Check the dumpster behind the park.
I sprint to get to them first after the National Anthem.
Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.
Holiday World often sells parts at the auctions during Holiwood Nights. This year featured some PTC running boards (from Voyage, I believe) and some (ab)used PTC bearings for $10/ea... I should have grabbed one of these myself, neat conversation piece for little cost.
Not sure if they have anything left from this year... hopefully next year they'll be selling two entire PTC trains.. :D
I get mine via online petitions.
What is this?
This is real life.
Nah, it's CoasterBuzz.
It doesn't get any more real than CoasterBuzz, man!
