    I'll take any of their portable coasters they may want to put up as part of their showcase that maybe they have on hand at their headquarters. I know the time is short.

    This might work

    Actually...if Zamperla puts in its state of the art rides this could be a great park. They make a wide enough variety that it won't be dull.

    What are the chances to get a Motocoaster, Volaire model, or a wild mouse in so quickly? I'm not crazy about the Volaire but it's up at Rye Playland, within the NYC market. I would come up for any of those models.
