But wait, haven't we heard that transporting a roller coaster from one park to another costs nearly as much as purchasing a new one? The old ride has to be de-constructed precisely, transported literally from coast-to-coast, repainted, re-built from the ground up, tested, staffed... Maybe not $15 million or anything, but wouldn't the relocation of Invertigo from California's Great America cost more than one million? Perhaps not, because I don't know what either FACE/OFF or Invertigo cost initially (though, I believe Action Zone's two year re-make being a reported $40, and Son of Beast being $20 million worth of that. That leaves $20 million to be spread among FACE/OFF, Drop Zone, and the cosmetic re-do).
Still doesn't sound like transporting a coaster could come in under a million... If it did, we could switch our entire fleet with Wonderland's and give people some new experiences for a cool $30 million!
EDIT: Or was that relocation-cost figure part of the promotion machine and not a real fact? Either way, a million sounds very cheap.
