That was not what I was expecting to see when I went in this thread. That's terrible to hear since it was such a one of a kind ride. I'm thankful it was operating when I went in April.

My sister is going to be bummed. That was her favorite coaster (yes she liked it more than Intimidator, SFNE's Superman, Skyrush, Phoenix, etc).

Super disappointing, really wanted to ride it in the future. I went to the park for the first time at the beginning of July and would have loved to ride it. RIP

Yeah, there are so many fun but generic coasters out there. This was not one of them. Super happy I got another ride in 2017. Remember being fascinated by this coaster when I was younger due to a roller coaster book I loved. Very disappointed about this as it rode so nice.

Wow!! I am glad that the one and only time I visited KD, I was able to ride!!! I was planning a trip there for the summer and hoping it would be open, but I guess not!

Sucks more that, since it was down so much, they couldn't give it a Season Finale.

Really sad they removed it, but we kinda saw it coming considering it was SBNO for most of the 2018 season. So glad I got to enjoy this ride in 2014 and 2016 for a total of 3 rides. Loved the launches, the inversions, and the unique setting. I hope they end up bringing something better into the space in the near future.

Such unexpected news. This coaster was in my top 5... I’m really sad to see it go. :cry:

Damn that sucks. I loved this ride and this was one of the most popular rides in the park too. Going to be really interesting to see what they do with the mountain itself since it's been there for a long time. I'm curious to see if they knock that down completely as well or decide to try to incorporate a new ride into it.

Sad. I wonder if the mountain itself was in such bad shape, it wasnt worth saving the coaster...?
