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***
It would be kind of hard to relocate this coaster because of the turane(sp) it is currently located on.
what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
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... ;)
You still have Zoidberg.... You ALL have Zoidberg! (V) (;,,;) (V)
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.
