Well, dont we have more efficient ways these days to launch something to 100 mph?
Im not saying at all that i believe this is S:TE, but you never know. Maybe the price listing is incorrect or maybe the whole listing is bunk?
I was also thinking maybe it was intended to be 1,250,000...possible?
^^You beat me to it. I thought about that price as well, but $12 million for a ride that doesnt really bring anything new to the table is pretty outrageous. For that price a compact B&M or intamin would be a much better investment. *** Edited 12/13/2006 7:05:01 PM UTC by Krypton***
To put it in perspective, my house is more expensive than the actual listing of the ride.
So what should I pick? a 1,600 sq. ft. 3 bedroom ranch? Or a 10 year old 415 ft tall obsolete launched coaster?
Actually I'm leaning more towards that the listing is missing a '0'. What surprises me the most is that the fact that S:TE is up for sale and nobody has expressed any opinion what so ever on the possible removal of the ride that caused so much controversy on whether or not it was a coaster.

"You mean I'mma hafta spend 1.25M and I don't even get to count it as a credit?"
Where are the "credit nazis" when you need 'em for a(nother) good laugh... ;)
125k sounds about right to me. Don't forget that whomever buys it will more than likely have to pay for it to be dismantled, moved, redesigned for a new site, modifications, and reconstructed somewhere else, which adds up to a lot of dough. If SF wants to get rid of this ride, they are basically going to have to give it away, and hopefully save themselves the cost of deconstruction.
