Did Wade buy the Windstorm or is this just for the one spot. This is nice piece not sure it has the capacity to pay itself down with the current price strutures.

There is nothing on their web site that shows a new coaster, but there is a downdraft on there now. It would be nice if they were able to add a drop tower for their central states route. The mighty mouse coaster & RC 48 are my favorites though.

Why no RC-48 or Commet II coasters at Florida State fair.
Looks like the RC-48 will be in West Palm though for the South Florida fair...

I bet they`re changing it up to give it a new look and feel. No one likes seeing the same year after year.

Last I saw the Comet II was up for sale, and the RC-48 as well. But yeah since it was already in Florida guess he booked it to change things up a bit.

Saw that to. I can see getting rid of the comet. Too big lots of trucks and longer setup a bit lower capacity than the rc 48. I was surprise about the rc48 though. Its a nice piece maybe doesn't make the money but it keeps the spots. On a different note havent seen deggeler set up there loop since texas. I hope these bigger coasters can stick around

Probably because its a tough jump when the FSF opens 4 days after West Palm closes. They close in West Palm on Sunday night and open in Tampa Thursday. Next year, I believe there will be a full week in between.

The Mighty Mouse is a little easier to move and that will be making the jump.

That would be a great addition to their show if they did.
