Roller Coasters For Sale

Sat Mar 08, 2014 3:38 pm

So I occasionally go online and see what roller coaster and other flat rides are on the market at the time. I always use this website and really enjoy viewing all the different rides, and sometimes odd ones really do make you question as to why they are for sale.
Here's the website: http://www.italintl.com/category.php?ca ... r+Coasters

About halfway down the page you will see a 2008 B&M coaster called freestyle time machine, I'm not sure if this is a sit down or stand up but either way it looks an incredible ride, and one I'd be quite happy to see a parks such as Alton and Thorpe.
But only being two years old I wonder why on earth it is for sale on a website for mainly fairground rides?!?!

This topic can be used for posting any roller coasters or flat rides you find for sale, but all to discuss why on earth that B&M is up for sale :)

The B&M is for sale because it is at Freestyle Music Park (Formerly Hard Rock Park), which has closed down. I don't think Alton or Thorpe would buy it but I wonder if maybe Flamingoland could make room for it to go where corkscrew was. Doubt that would happen but would be good to have another B&M in the UK, even if it isn't a particularly good one.

Thank you. I have just done research on this so now have my answer. :)
I personally love this B&M. I think put of the merlin parks it most suits Thorpe, however it has the potential to have some amazing theming and could see it fitting in to alton nicely. Space would be the issue though so best off at thorpe :)

I doubt it'd be in Flamingo Land since Hero only opened last year.
