Out of all the water rides they could've shut down, they chose this one? I get that maintenance can get a bit expensive with these types of rides, especially given Arrow's no longer around, but there's a perfectly bulldozable Whitewater Falls, which (last I saw) isn't that much wet and doesn't even get that many riders (plus the fact that there's a good amount of space in that area). I really hope something better replaces this (especially given one of the masterplan documents mentioned a new flume ride), but my guess is that they'll just use the space for more Boomerang Bay stuff.
Also, why do these parks gotta announce ride closures just a few weeks prior? I've been noticing a pattern with these.
I really liked Logger's Run, so it's a shame to see it closing. I forget what was in the planning document, but I'm guessing this area would be used for water slides given its proximity to Boomerang Bay. Their water park was extremely small back in 2014, so while I personally would have preferred them to keep the flume, I understand why they want to build in that area.

After the park removed Yankee Clipper, Logger's Run just wasn't the same. I'm sad to see the other half go, but the writing has been on the wall ever since they split up the two. We know a water park expansion and new water ride are in the park's plans, so we'll see where this goes.
It's most likely the space will be used for something related to the waterpark. And I personally think it should be renamed Yankee Harbor since that's what part of the area used to be called when the park first opened, and I feel it'd be an interestingly nice throwback.
