Hey, I'm just wondering whatever happened to Circus World that ended up turning into Boardwalk and Baseball? I rode two coasters there, one called the Florida Hurricane the other called Weiner Looping... Both sucked and Weiner Looping almost killed me. Just wondering because neither coaster is on the coaster list to add to my track record.

I read about this not too long ago. The owners of Boardwalk & Baseball ran out of money and sold off all the rides. The circus tent can still be seen standing today. I remember passing by the park, Circus World at the time, when I went to Florida with my family in about '85. We were on our way to Cypress Gardens. I also remember looking through the little pamphlets for the place. I was only about 9 at the time and couldn't figure out how Wiener Looping made it over that dang hill! I didn't understand that it went through the course in reverse. ;) hehe Wiener Looping is one of Schwartzkopf's most insane creations from what I've read of it. It still operates today somewhere in Austria, I think.
