YAY!! The big ugly screen is coming down.
That laser show ran its course and it's time for it come down plus it was a bottleneck that was hell to walk through when the show was over.
I sort of miss having the Giant Wheel where it used to be. Nice views of the middle of the park from there.

Now the entire area from the train station clear to the Sky Ride's station (plus Wildcat's area if need be) is all open and fair game with no restrictions because of a laser show.
Also, weren't there rumors that the car ride behind Raptor's cobra roll (I want to say the Cadillac one, but I can't remember which one was rumored...maybe both?) might be on the way out? If so, that only extends the portion of land, opening up a whole hell of a lot more.
Both Iron Dragon and Wildcat did shut down for the show but would reopen immediately afterwards when the park was open past 10.
One thing that gets in the way of using the Iron Dragon midway is the former IMAX theater now Good Time Theater. To rip that out would be a large undertaking. (I think it's too big to house an ice skating show that will eventually get old and really too big to house any other kind of show). But other than that the Dodgems and Wildcat could be relocated but given the recent history with Wildcat I don't know if they'd do that or just try to sell it.
I believe the rumor is that Turnpike was going to be removed and the Cadillac Cars (you're correct - they are the ones behind Raptor's cobra roll) would be rerouted.
