^ I just checked Wikipedia. If it's correct, there are still 29 left in 20 different countries. Great Adventure's Twister is the last one in the US.

^To honor the legacy of Volcano/Crypt; The new ride(s) must be unique, original, and creative.
It was be sad to see the replacement be basic, dull, and uninspired.
Well themed please...

Definitely not sad about this announcement, although I'm excited to see what happens with the area!

Maybe I've gotten lucky, but my rides on Cyborg have flipped from start to finish. I didn't get those rides with endless rocking I see others talk about.

Same here. Although I rode Harley Quinn at SFOT, not Cyborg. I think the tops spins are more intense, but Harley Quinn was more disorienting and less painful!
Steel: 197 / Wood: 33 / Total: 230
Home Parks: Knott's (when home), Lagoon (at school)
Favorite Coaster: Intimidator 305

I Love Donkeys!

I'm sure there are reasons. I'm also sure they did what they could to keep said attractions, especially in the case of Volcano. Rides get old. They become increasingly difficult to maintain, especially when the company no longer exists and you can't get parts for them anymore (as was the case with The Crypt). It would have been better had there been a replacement on hand, but in the case of these 2, there was none, due to it not being planned for.

Um, Huss still exists and still manufacturers the Top Spin. I'm sure they could get parts if they wanted to.
