Ultra Twister up for sale.

Saturday, November 21, 2009 10:48 PM

Saw news on another site that, Six Flags is putting Togo's Ultra Twister, from defunct Astroworld, up for sale at Ital.

So, they're hoping that this is a profitable sale for Six Flags, and Viper was only worth the scrap metal they could get for it. Interesting.

Well, I did go back, and try to edit the title of the thread, to Twister, and not Twiter, but the edit won't take.

Ultra Twiter was kinda funny, but it's fixed for you. :)

I hate it that the coaster is in poor condition (and therefore, will most likely not get bought)...it looks like a really fun and unique ride!

It's been sitting in a field for 5 years, so I don't think it is in very good shape.

Kind of a bummer as I have never been on one of these. Hope it gets set up again.

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.

Silly thing hurt my ribs, I didn't cry any tears for it when it got damaged (?), or when it didn't get installed at SFA. It was unique, I'll give it that.

UltraTwiter would fetch a much better price. ;)

So why not go through the effort of constructing the ride at Six Flags America or Six Flags New England, as has been discussed before? If the price of repairing this ride is less cost-effective than buying a comparably new ride, then does Six Flags even think someone will buy it? My guess is that this is just a small whim-ho attempt to see if some small international park can be fooled into buying it---which is sad for the park that does.

Any park who gave any consideration to guest comfort wouldn't bother with this ride. Unique? OK...but ouch-rageous too!

I didn't think it was that bad. I could see a park who already has one, possibly buying it just for parts since Togo is no longer around.

I didn't think it was bad either. Actually, I kind of liked it.
