This may only be of minor interest, but Hillcrest Park, near Chicago is for
sale. It is home to a Little Dipper. It's just a kiddie ride, but is on the
ACE coaster classic list.
This is good example of how we've lost many coasters and parks. The park is
profitable. In fact, for a business of its size, it's very profitable. Yet,
the land that it sits on has grown so valuable, that it doesn't support being
used for this purpose. To justify its existence on this piece of property, the
park would have to be greatly expanded, which of course, requires much
Hillcrest Park is just a picnic park, not a full scale amusmement park, for
those of you who may not have known.
I hope someone buys it who would like to keep it a park.
