Where's GL Mind Eraser Going?

Friday, August 1, 2008 9:02 AM
Hello Coaster Fans Who I Haven't Talk To In Years (it's amazing what 2 kids, a new home, and a new job can do to one's coaster riding!)

I just noticed yesterday I was driving on I-77 in Canton, OH, I passed GL's Mind Eraser going south on I-77. While I saw most rides listed to who they sold to, I didn't see anything about Mind Eraser? Anyone know who got it, or where's it going?

While I haven't been able to ride coasters a lot, I do know it was DEFINITELY Mind Eraser on a truck bed (at least 2 pieces of it). Any ideas?

-Thanks!

Do you live in the Canton area? I live in Massillon and drive I-77 every day to work in Akron. I wish I could have seen that. Hope life is treating you well, and welcome back.

Wow, I was going to say Michingan's Adventure because I thought that the Mind Eraser was the SLC. Look at all the other parks, and the name Mind Eraser is attached to an SLC except GL. I never knew that ride as Mind Eraser, but rather just as Head Spin, and Thunderhawk. I never went to that park until Cedar Fair bought it.

^Definitely a weird phenomenon that went on at GL lol.

However, the name "Mind Eraser" for a Vekoma Boomerang has always made more sense, at least to me, due to the fact that you travel forward then backwards.

^and to think I thought they called it that due to the headaches it gave most people....

Remember the lawsuit filed from Elitch's Mind Eraser when A woman reported that she lost her memory from riding it?
