Six Flags should have tried that to reduce their debt... sell dirt. Not rides, not land, not parks, just dirt. Lots and lots of dirt. There was always plenty of it in Great Adventure's restrooms, along with a lot of other unsavory stuff.
Does the Laser Tag include the old chapel building it was housed in? :)
Seriously, I hope that at least the Twister ride ends up somewhere nearby (cough, cough, Knoebels, ahem something stuck in my throat there) and I hope the Carousel is well taken care off. That's very early 20th century (as in 190-something) isn't it?
I'm sure the gang from KG will be down for the sale, although everything there is in deplorable condition mechanically. The carrousel is a 1902 or close-to-that DC Muller, although Mickey sold off the wood animals and had fiberglas ones made for it, possibly after the '72 flood.
Aside from the Twister, Monster, (what's left of)the carrousel, and the Pretzel, and maybe the Allotria, there's not much worth buying. It appears they've already sold a few of the other rides (at least they're not on the list).
Should be an interesting auction, though. Wonder if they'll be selling piles of dirt this time....
Sad, but not very surprising. I figured it would come to this.
I imagine Knoebels will be well-represented at the auction, and I certainly wouldn't mind if the Twister went to Elysburg to accompany their wooden coaster of the same name. As much as I loved the park, I doubt there is much of value there- perhaps a few rides like the Paratrooper and Musik Express that can be used to supply parts for other rides. I'm sure the Cyclone will be demolished, as I don't even see it listed for sale.
I am so happy that I got there back in 2004 when I thought that was the end of the road for the park.
I'm glad I got to the park once, but missed the Cyclone on a trip in 2003. Cyclone happened to be down that day due to a busted coupling between cars. I would have liked to have ridden at at least once.
