There's no other reason to get rid of such a small footprint, no height requirement, gentle observation tower ride in a park that is losing more and more low thrill attractions like it.
I'll miss these both!
Yes, that would make sense for Space Spiral. Really does stink to lose so many iconic CP attractions in such quick succession. First Demon Drop a few years ago, then Paddlewheel, finally WildCat and Space Spiral. My parents are running out of things they like at the park!
Don't get me wrong, I'm very excited for what CP gets, but if it is a Wing Coaster I hope it's a different breed than the ones out already. I thought X-Flight at SFGAm was fun, but it was really short, seemed slow, and was quite forceless. I've always thought DT was cooler than most people thought it was (A bobsled in the DARK!), and found it always to be worth a ride. And, heck, I never even rode it when the theming was all intact!
I too, will miss both of these rides. Although if I was running Cedar Fair I'd relocate DT to Michigan's Adventure...just a thought.
