btw yall this is your last chance to make it over there and um....."look" if you catch my drift at the batman/robin symbol everyone wishes they could have. I'm sure whatever park bought this is not an SF park and that piece will likely end up in trash somewhere....im actually kinda shocked gadv didn't just hold on to that piece or WB didn't ask them to hold on to it.....I'm not so sure it was legal for them to include that with the sale considering it is a licensed logo of warner brothers....

This is what happens when you open a roller coaster in a haunted area of the park! :jumping0010:

I hope the park kept the original roll pieces and included them when they sent the coaster out. I think some pieces were just flipped and included as part of the renovation.

Working at that ride made me the enthusiast I am. Mr. Freeze's (SFStL) top hat was cool but just not the same. I'm sure I've damaged my hearing and I can't forget how the launches sounded.

In this day and age I wouldn't be surprised either if it's going to scrap and could be a precursor for the fate of the SBNO Speed The Ride in Las Vegas.

I thought the symbol was kept by the park and could be seen in that area with old ride stuff to the right of the first drop of Nitro?

They kept the front entrance sign. It got a lil bent too sitting in the graveyard next to NITRO. We're talking about that big daddy Batman & Robin emblem from the top hat tower. I saw it in Flying Phil's update of that Cream Ridge Rt. 539 area storage site.

Between new trains, LIM repair or replacement, relocation and track rehab, this coaster is going to cost a ton of money to repair.

It's about time! It pained me to watch it sit there. Hopefully it's new home (whether it is a park or the steel mill) will treat it well.

Maybe Knoebel's took pity on it and bought it, they have a knack for fixing up unwanted coasters.

According to Screamscape, it's getting ready to be shipped. It'll be interesting to see where it turns up!
