INVERTIGO to Leave California's Great America

Invertigo Going to a New Home

After 12 years of service at California's Great America, Cedar Fair has decided to move the ride to another Cedar Fair park, and open up a new opportunity for Great America.

This is a business decision that is taking into consideration all of the Cedar Fair properties and allowing us to infuse capital into another park and opening up a great opportunity for a new attraction at Great America.

Although we do not discuss future plans that are not definate, our Corporate Design team has evaluated the location and plans are underway for the future of the location.

This is not unusual, in 2003 the ride Stealth was removed and relocated to Carowinds in Charlotte, N.C., to make way for what is now know as Boomerang Bay water park.

Stay tuned for more details as they are available!

If that is the case then it is probably what happened to Deja Vu at SFGAm. SFGAm couldn't afford all of the mechanical problems and kept losing money because of it so they sold it to Silverwood.
ARE... YOU... READY?

Just went to CGA - the space where Invertigo was is now just a lawn.

How sad... Seems like they could have left the "bird cages" in place then... :(
