According to Nickelodeon Universe's website, it explains that the Balloon Ride near the center of the park has closed forever on April 20th. This has me questioning what they could put on the rather large area of space. Will this be the location of FlyOverAmerica? Or will this be perhaps another project. I am visiting he park tomorrow to see what they could possibly be doing to the balloon ride area.
I guess you could say I'm a waterpark guy

FlyOver America is going in place of the ballroom/great hall/whatever the most recent name was. It's in the southeast corner of the park.

Nickelodeon Universe is closing the falling star this Saturday, according to the park's Facebook.

Thats right next to where the balloons were. That leaves a large area. Maybe big enough for another coaster or very large flat!

Flat rides just make more sense for this type of park, so I just don't expect a coaster.

You just never know. The park has added 3 coasters since it's opening. There is still a very large area over the top of the arcades. I've heard that it is going to be a planetarium but its been like this for about a year now. With space opening up near by they just might try to pull off another coaster. One can hope right?

A Zamperla high-balloon-spiny thing (kids ride) is replacing the former Balloon Race and a Chance fireball is replacing Danny Phantom, from what I'm told.

The ride that replaced Balloon Race is called Bubble Guppies Guppy Bubbler and is now open. Here are a few pics from yesterday.

I really hope they put in something nice to replace Danny Phantom's Ghost Zone, I will actually miss this ride, not really for the thrills but more for the sentimental value. I'm surprised MOA is still demolishing/adding attractions even after the 20 million dollar investment they just announced.

They're probably not doing it just for giggles. Rides have service lives - once the service life runs out, they need to get the ride out of there as soon as possible, especially if it's a discontinued ride like a Falling Star, if they don't want to be up to their eyeballs in maintenance costs.
