If they're going through liquidation, this park would've been put on for a relative 'steal' to be fair.
Plus the three-million-dollar sweetener put up by the county. I’m just glad the “cooperation” with local government and now liquidation have forced Apex to be a little more transparent with other agencies, because I never trusted their pat assurance that they’d done everything to find a buyer; it always seemed as if they needed a public line to give before they looked to unload the park in pieces for a quick buck.

I marathoned it in 2018 and had a blast. You are sorely mistaken, sir.
I mean I did the same thing in 2017. The initial run out was good and the return run was a strong finish, but everything in between lacked substance. There wasn't much airtime and the turns and valleys in the middle of the ride are relatively high so the pacing slows. There wasn't even much in terms of lateral Gs in the ride's figure-8. I guess it's possible that I visited on an off day, but from my experience it felt like a middle of the pack CCI.

I got pops of airtime galore and wild laterals. The only slight negative was the most violent sudden stop on the final brake run I’d ever experienced. Yeah, I loved Silver Comet.

At any rate, let us not speak ill of the dead. 😪😏

I mean, I got spited by it in 2018 'cos it was drizzling and they decided not to bother opening the park, so... **** it. ;)

News article regarding Fantasy Island

A couple of notable quotes:

"“I am upset Apex made this decision without consulting town officials first. We may have been able to help them,” explained Whitney, who knew the park had been deteriorating the past couple of seasons."

"Every attraction but the Silver Comet and a water park have been sold. The iconic Ferris Wheel, which sits adjacent to Interstate 190, will be disassembled and transported its new owner in Italy."
