Posted | Contributed by Jeff

Carolina Crossroads still owns the Zippin Pippin, Elvis Presley's favorite roller coaster, but the developers of a new amusement park in Memphis would like to get it back. Carolina Crossroads Developer Michael Dunlow said he is open to talks of leaving it in Memphis, and Robert Barnard, owner of the new amusement park, said his group would be willing to buy the coaster if given a long-term lease for the park. The new park would replace Libertyland and be named Joyland.
