Whatever it is, hopefully it will bring more interest to the park. They could definitely use it. And I think some modern family flats would do exactly that. I just hope they get something that PKI or HW doesn't already have; that would help a lot, IMO.
matt - have you ridden one yet?
I have, I was just looking at it more as a marketability thing that a ride experience thing.
Then again I never saw any marketing whatsoever for SFKK's mouse before or after it opened (I was living in Lex, KY at the time) so maybe that won't be a problem. ;)
I think either one of those type of rides will become a staple at most parks down the road. They just look fun, and are fairly economical and very family friendly. I wouldn't be surprised to see one of these types of rides end up at a park like HW soon.
I don't see Elitch's as a park that is going to be bought out by another operator who continues with it as it stands. I see more of a SFAW scenario, in which case the Halfpipe would definately find it's way to another park. I just hope that the Flying Coaster crash lands somewhere. :)
T2= Riddler's Revenge/ Mr. Freeze
Chang= Batman:The Ride
Pengiun's Blizzard River
bring back the Batman Show
New attractions= Robin or Villan themes
I know this has been tried in the past and fell through but I just like this idea.
A 'clone' of Elitch's Halfpipe? Why not Elitch's Halfpipe itself? (snip)

Part 1: Most definitely, that ride WILL be relocated.
Part 2: Land values would seem to dictate that EG will be *developed*, NOT taken over...
Part 3: Zamperla Flyers are the worst product they've come out with, AFAIK. Hard to believe that ANYONE rode one and THEN decided to buy one... ;)
Edit: You know, it beats the Hell out of me whenever I think of all the parks that exist that could use one (or two) Gerstlauer spinning coasters. Why isn't it more popular? (Okay, besides the hourly capacity?) *** Edited 7/13/2006 11:45:56 PM UTC by Arson***
