I love Intamin rides as much as the next person, but I'd much rather see a newer generation Intamin Drop Tower take that spot!
Because it is a highly underrated ride have you ever even been on it.
I think you need to look at the posting details of the people you are calling out....ie...SharkTums...site admin...5677 posts.
Anyway, I always liked the out of control feeling that you got on the ride, but seem to remember it going down at least for a portion of the day almost every time I went there. What I think is apparent is that it was the only drop tower, freefall, type ride in a huge park. If they are going to get rid of it, that is going to be a pretty obvious whole in their ride line up...At least they aren't getting rid of the Parachutes yet. It may not be the most intense ride, but it is getting to be rather unique in this day and age.
Well, Robin's train did valley before and the back car of the train was stuck upside down in the zero-g roll. Also, because of the incident that happened to Chiller in the beginning of July this past summer.
So, that's a pretty good guess why the zero-g roll would be removed.
