The fact that it's closing so early in the season is a good sign...

Is this the Last TOGO stand up in America?

hmmm. Should be an interesting off season for the larger cf parks
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks

Well, good thing I am on my way to Virginia for vacation roght now. Shockwave (or any Togo) tops my list for must-have credits. I just really want to try one out, but flying to Japan wont be an option.

Atleast the KD fanboys can shut up about removing Shockwave, but... *incoming speculations*... Sigh.

Yes. Now the only Togo left in the USA will be Big Apple Coaster @ New York, New York Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

To be fair, ANYTHING can happen with it closing this early! Remember dismantling of Disaster Transport didn't begin until August 6th for GateKeeper. I'm not saying expect a GateKeeper sized coaster, but with the August 9th removal date it definitely seems like they're making way for something of significant value in 2016.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Will be interesting to see if it will be scrapped or relocated. I cannot imagine there being a huge demand for old standup coasters, but considering that SkyRider from Canada's Wonderland soon will re-open in Italy I guess anything is possible...

If you've watched Coaster Studios, he predicted that Kings Dominion will get a 200 ft tall invert. That would be epic. Either that or a launched wingrider.
