Note the clean cuts, the stacked track pieces, etc... this is a much more time-consuming removal process than just bulldozing the thing to the ground. The only thing I can speculate from this is that they are making sure the footers aren't damaged during the removal, which of course bolsters the alleged reworking.
Besides, if they were just going to taer it down they wouldn't have needed to close it before the season was done.
So assuming that the footers are being saved for re-use, let the speculation begin as to what sort of new circular thing will be up there....
How's this? The train leaves the valley and races up the cliff into the top layer of the helix at breakneck speed (due to the increased lift hill height, the extended first drop, and the overbanked horseshoe turn back into the valley)... it screams around the top layer of the helix, then cuts a sharp banked right turn into a corkscrew through the center of the circle, exiting into the middle layer of the helix, travelling in the opposite direction, counter-clockwise. It navigates 3/4 around the circle, then heads back to the center for another corkscrew, interlocked with the first one. Back into the helix at ground level, again going clockwise, heading for the MCBR (which is always off, but is necessary for blocking), headchoppers galore.
I can dream, can't I?
