Bell's Amusement Park putting Zingo in storage
Posted by: Coasterdad | 28 February 2007 00:09

Bell's most famous ride is Zingo, the wooden roller coaster people from all over the country have come to Tulsa to ride. Robby Bell says his dad built it in 1968 for about $240,000, it would cost at least $3 million today to duplicate it, so it's coming down piece by piece.

The trackbed is the part above Zingo’s rib-like cross pieces. That will be tossed, the rest will come down like an erector set. Bell says it will take 12 weeks to tear down the ride, and five months to rebuild it somewhere else.

The other large rides will be temporarily relocated to the manufacturer for storage; the Mind Melt for example will go back to Plainview, Texas.
