I like this idea.  Look you could paint over the snake skin to make the cars orange and yellow.  Plop the track down in Octoberfest right where the slingshot is.  Boom! return of the Flying Dutchman

YES!!!!

There is no way KI would say that there is no plan on bringing Coney Rides and they just wanted to keep secret anyway.

KI needs some parts from Coney Rides such as scrambler and bumper cars and new Vikings ship from Coney to old Viking Ship in Kings Island  and adding some dose other trill rides from Coney Such as flying Bob's, Phyton, Top Spin, and Wipe Out .

Will see how it's playout.

Thanks KI Guy to confront us that there's still chance Coney rides would be KI next year.

The only Coney rides I could see working well at KI (besides possibly one of the kiddie rides) are Flying Bobs and Tilt-a-Whirl.

The company that makes Scrambler is still in business so KI wouldn't need to strip the one at Coney for parts. The bumper cars and ship at KI are completely different than the ones at Coney so those wouldn't do very well for parts either.

Is there a site, auction retail to find rides for sale?

Games etc. 

 

Rides4U is the liquidator according to this article: https://carnivalwarehouse.com/newsserver/rides-4-u-to-liquidate-amusement-rides-from-cincinnati-based-coney-island-1568246400

I assume eventually we will see Coney rides here: http://www.rides4u.com/rides/used/all/0/created/DESC/10/1

Could the zoo take a few, and still holding out the 1930s 40s roller cage ride makes it home in Cincinnati

Not sure if the Cincinnati Zoo would be interested in any additional rides. Their carousel and train are pretty popular though.

I feel that at least as far a company picnics go, the rides draw a lot more people than might necessarily decide to ride them. Coney Island's identity is an amusement park, and amusement parks have rides.

I don't know of many companies that have employee picnics at a swimming pool.

I could see Rock-o-plane and maybe even Tempest going to Stricker's.  From a pure capacity standpoint, the Tilt-a-Whirl and Flying Bobs are the main two I could see at KI.  Hopefully Cedar Fair picks up the Scrambler and puts it at one of the parks that doesn't have one.

Tilt-a-Whirl would be a great addition.  Always a must ride when I head up to the point.

My guess is Sticker's will not pickup any rides.  Since it is a private park expansion is very difficult to justify, and would have to happen very slowly.  It would be easy to expand straight out of business.

Cedar Fair might be interested in some of the rides, they have picked up used rides in the past, but so many used rides are put on the market every year and they have been very selective about the rides they purchase.  The flying bobs for instance is the mobile version and is still mounted on a trailer.  I doubt they would be interested in rides not designed to be permanently installed unless it is easy to convert.
