It’s the end of an era at Playland.
The amusement park has confirmed that the Corkscrew roller coaster, which has been around since 1994, has permanently closed.
The decision was reportedly a tough one to make, but ultimately the iconic ride was not envisioned as being part of Playland’s future.
What’s next for the Corkscrew? iIt’s currently up for sale and will be disassembled once sold. According to rides4u.com, the roller coaster can be yours for $499,000.
While many fans will hate to see this nostalgic ride gone, there’s a new addition to Playland that will excite many. On Monday morning, the amusement park announced the latest addition to its ride roster, the Sea-to-Sky Swinger.
This new ride will be replacing the iconic Wave Swinger. The Sea-to-Sky Swinger features single and double seating options, an increased capacity of 64 riders, and a state-of-the art LED light display package.
