What happened to the coasters at Old Indiana?

Thursday, January 2, 2003 12:11 PM
I was looking at pictures on www.rcdb.com of the coasters in storage at Old Indiana. Does any know what happen to them?

I hope Six Flags is planning to reopen them at some their parks.I would hate to see an arrow shuttle loop or a bobsled coaster be turned into scrap.

I'm a big fan of bobsled coasters. It would be nice for SFGAm to get this one to make up for the lost of Rolling Tunder.

Nearly all of the Coasters there came from Opryland.

They included a Bobsled, an Arrow Mine Train, an Arrow Corkscrew, and the Popular Chaos Indoor Coaster.

There were also several Opryland Flat Rides, and the Old Indiana Rides and Coasters as well.

The Last I heard, Six Flags was planning on scrapping alott of it or something.

The Mine Train went to the Great Escape, did it not?

I think the Bobsled at Great Escape came from Great America.

The Old Opryland Mine Train I believe is the new ride next year at Great Escape, they got one from somewhere.

All the coasters that were located at the former Old Indiana site are gone. Some were saved, some were scrapped.

Six Flags sold the land last summer, to an individual and it will become a private gaming site.

We had a long discussion a while back when the land sale first happened....decided this guy must be a real *sportsman*....guess he got tired of "shooting fish in a barrel", and figured he'd move up to bigger game...;)

The CB news item posted 1/2 confirms the Mine Train went to GE, but does anyone know if the others that were still left there last year were not scrapped?

There was a rumor posted on Coasternet Nov '01 that the Old Mill Scream (Opryland's Shoot the Chutes) was going to SFDL. SFDL's site lists Shipwreck Falls as a new ride. Is that it?

This is incorrect since Hangman and Grizzly River Rampage went to other parks (unless they went to Old Indiana first?). What about the others listed there?

FYI, last I heard, Gaylord kept the carousel (in storage). I've read conflicting info on where the Opryland trains went.

yup, the Alpine Bobsled came from Great America...used to be called Rolling Thunder when it was there.

Also the Opryland mine train that was in storage is going to be GE's new coaster for 2003. The track is on-site, but I dont believe that they've actually started to rebuild it just yet.

The train near the Nightmare indoor coaster, along w/the Tornado are being removed from the park to make room for the ride.

The official announcement of the ride is supposed to happen within the next two weeks (or so im being told)

Nothing's been mentioned in the media in a couple months.
Last mention was 10/30 though I think I forgot to post it as a news item. I hope they don't build way out by the Superspeedway (40 miles from Nashville).

Sorry, visionlandlover, what is WW/EV?
