Ok, so in that recent Cincinnati Enquirer article Kings Island claim to have removed the loop from the Son of Beast rollerocaster and shipped it off to a steel recycling center. Well a buddy of mine who works up at the park in HR sent me some pictures of the loop sitting in the parking lot in pieces. These were taken by him in within the last two weeks at some time. He said theres no X Flight track in the parking lot yet but that the SOB loop is lying in pieces. Do you think they might auction some of it off? I'd like to buy a piece!
Here are the pictures:
I'm thinking about calling the park tommorow and seeing if any of these pieces are for sale or do you think maybe they're holding them for the ACE museum. My friend said the whole structure isnt there, just parts of it laying around along with some big wooden crates that he claims are full of old lap bars, but he didnt have any pictures.
