From SFA Fans Facebook page...

That is Apocalypse behind the fence... looks like it's either Floorless Apocalypse or they are getting rid of Apocalypse altogether (RMC Raptor... please? Could probably reuse the same station!)

I totally think they're gonna floorless Apocalypse. Its such a SFA thing to do - its cheap and they can call it a new coaster.

And for everyone talking about a potential RMC, please stop. I'm literally about to choke from laughing so hard.

I will actually laugh out loud if they announce a Floorless Apocalypse because there is absolutely nothing they can do to improve the dumpster fire that is that coaster.
Steel: 160 / Wood: 32 / Total: 192
Home Parks: Knott's (when home), Lagoon (at school)

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

I actually thought Iron Eagle was a decent flat ride, I wonder why they junked it all those years ago?

And the idea of RMC conversion for Wild One . . . umm, wouldn't that invalidate the ACE Coaster Landmark award WO got this year? (For what it's worth, said plaque isn't in front of the ride anymore)

Floor-less Apocalypse; meh - RMC Raptor - Schwing!

Regarding Floorless Apocalypse; I highly doubt they would invest that type of money into this park. I seriously expect some bullsh*t for the waterpark or a family flat and I can't wait for the comments.

I hate stuff like this because it makes people right for the wrong reasons. I assure you that the park doesn't even remotely care about that ACE plaque, but at the same time they're never going to RMC that ride because

a) Couldn't they RMC Roar and just clone Joker?

and

b) Their CapEx budget is eight dollars. They're not RMCing anything.

Aw man. I know a lot of people hate this ride but it's my favorite coaster :cry: Hopefully they won't remove it all together

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.
