City council about to bring back the “Cyclone Racer” and a new NuPike of rides? It well may be heading that way.

So what occured is a money losing and in-decline mall. A place that is not taking in revenue. What could have been there was an amusement park with rides across from the Queen Mary.

With increasing crime and another mall, Long Beach City Council allowed a very grand opportunity to skirt by, so what is next?
