I love Intamin rides as much as the next person, but I'd much rather see a newer generation Intamin Drop Tower take that spot!


Because it is a highly underrated ride have you ever even been on it.

I think you need to look at the posting details of the people you are calling out....ie...SharkTums...site admin...5677 posts.

Anyway, I always liked the out of control feeling that you got on the ride, but seem to remember it going down at least for a portion of the day almost every time I went there. What I think is apparent is that it was the only drop tower, freefall, type ride in a huge park. If they are going to get rid of it, that is going to be a pretty obvious whole in their ride line up...At least they aren't getting rid of the Parachutes yet. It may not be the most intense ride, but it is getting to be rather unique in this day and age.

Yeah obviously this newbie knows nothing of me and my Intamin Fetish!

I would never want it taken out, I'm just saying I totally understand SFGAd's reasoning for taking it out. And with their record lately of putting in Intamin Rides, I trust them!

Idiot.

Pictures 11 and 12 clearly show the zero-g rolls GONE! Now, will they just repair the track or will something else happen?

^ You do realize that coasters get modifications all the time....for example, California Screamin' had his loop removed a couple of weeks ago....having a pieces of track replaced happens ALL THE TIME.

As far as I know, there haven't been any rumors of this ride being "modified" unlike SoB where those rumors were floating around for a few weeks before the pics of the loop being removed surfaced.

Until you actually hear something concrete, I wouldn't go around making a huge deal out of it.

Well, Robin's train did valley before and the back car of the train was stuck upside down in the zero-g roll. Also, because of the incident that happened to Chiller in the beginning of July this past summer.

So, that's a pretty good guess why the zero-g roll would be removed.

I HIGHLY doubt thier taking the zero-g-roll because of the incident that happened they are most likely re-track it.
