Screamscape:

Park News - (9/16/18) Various confidential sources have all chimes in with similar stories, claiming that both El Diablo and King Cobra are leaving the Six Flags property and heading to other parks.


I mean, still take it all with a grain of salt, but it's interesting that these conversations seem to be continuing rather than dying out. I like El Diablo but certainly won't miss it. King Cobra, pfft, good riddance. We were supposed to get retrofitted drop towers instead, anyway.

So go to the account update page and it will be at the bottom of the page

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

As I've never been to GAdv's Hurrican Harbor (and why is it separate admission and why no path or shuttle to it from the dry park?); why good riddance to King Cobra?

And yeah, if the retrofitted drop towers refers to modifying Zumanjaro so it and KK can run at the same time, I'm all for that.

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

I like Diablo, I dont want it to leave. If the operator gives you the extended edition it's a fun ride.

Removing King Cobra is insane unless they plan on adding 12 replacement slides. The negligence shown towards Hurricane Harbor is criminal and Senator Booker should investigate.



...I know Im going to get booed for this, but Fright Fest....should I go this weekend or next weekend? Do more people go for the first weekend, or does nobody think about fright fest until October?

Can anyone get out to the park and confirm that King Cobra is being dismantled? Multiple people have said on the Reddit, and more importantly, Screamscape that it's being taken down this week starting today.

It's separate admission because they make more money that way, and with it way out there there's no obstacle to it.

They used to run a tram to the waterpark (and Safari tour bus back before the days of Off-Road Adventure). With all of the barricades they put up for the Preferred/Diamond whatever parking lot, there's no way for the tram to get to the main gate, so they stopped it. That, and they disbanded the parking lot department...Fun fact: I used to drive and spiel on the that very tram in my youth.

Seeing more and more people talking about El Diablo leaving the park. What's the last ride here that had a lifespan this short? It was only added in 2015. Curious to see what they do with that spot now if this is legit since it doesn't make sense to remove it otherwise.

A bunch of the rides in the late 80s had three-year lifespans. Ultra Twister, Shockwave, and Condor each were only around for three years, and Sarajevo Bobsled was around for about four. Also, some of the rides added in 1999 were taken out after only three years, too.
