    I remember hearing something about this but I totally can't remember what it was! Python was a sucky coaster anyway (killed my back every time I rode it) so it won't be missed.

    Looks like the last operating day for the Python will be tomorrow, Oct. 31. Then the walls go up and demolition starts to make way for "Jungle Village"- an African village and zoo attraction. I'd almost wish they would get rid of the Scorpion instead- but those first generation Corkscrews don't have the same appeal as they once did!

    They are removing Python and renovating that whole area of the park. I'm not exactly sure on the details of the renovations, but there are other sites out there following the developments pretty closely if your interested in checking them out. BGTguide and Screamscape would both be good places to look for the info.

    Yeah Scorpion was forcefull but Python is rough. It might be great nostalgia...but I've ridden Arrow Corckscrews before...I skipped this one in BGT. I think a new area can look nice.

    Python (after 30 years of service) is not closed... awaiting for something to chomp it up...

    then melt it down...

    then sell beer in it

    if anyone misses the attraction, or wanted to kow that it was: BGTGuide.com has two videos (one of them is mine) of python in operation... I recomend downloading them, 56K warning... the second video is huge!
