I think they used them until the 1990's when they were putting way to much weight on the structure and i couldve had a SoB type accident if they countinued it so they used three row cars instead of 4. Oh and i belong to KICentral(the person who posted that beast test video)
First rode the beast at 6 years old
Favorite coaster: tie between Diamondback and The Beast
^ While I can understand them getting rid of Thunder Alley to make way for a new ride, it worries me a little that it would leave Congo Falls as the only "family" friendly ride in that section of the park, depending on what they in fact do with that area. As far as the Luminosity rumor, I think it could be a great addition for the park.
Just out of curiosity - how vital is Timberwolf Amphitheater? Seems like the biggest waste of space in Action Zone as it's only used like, what 2-3 times a season? Looking down from Drop Tower you can tell it's seen better days. They could possibly re-route Flight Deck's entrance to the Invertigo side of Action Zone.
Thunder Alley's location would be good for a coaster station or a couple of flat rides.

Including Oktoberfest, Viking Fury is still a family ride. It's also the lowest height requirement in the area - 40", compared to Congo Falls' 46" (or Drop Tower's, Adventure Express', and Flight Deck's 48"). If they added any new rides in the area, then some more family friendly ones would be perfect. That, or lower some height requirements - Adventure Express had a 44" height requirement, without seatbelts, for over a decade before being raised a few years ago.
