Nope. For the past few weeks I've been out at the park quite frequently and they are usually out there working while the park (including Goliath) is open.

Yesterday (7/1/2018) was a good/bad Six Flags day... Batman was running again after over a week of being closed for an unknown reason. And although the back parking lot was packed, the lines werent too bad. I was able to get a ride on Sky Screamer (for the first time) because it was a cycle wait..

Rain caused the rides to shut down for a while, and Goliath had a technical difficulty two cycles ahead of me boarding. When I came back to try to ride it again (after getting stuck in the brake run on Twisted Cyclone due to yet another technical difficulty) they had closed it for the night, even though it was only 9:50pm and the park didn't 'close' until 10.

GASM was the only coaster running 1 train but I was still able to get a lap in just because it's a must ride every time I visit the park.

Even with all the issues, I'm just happy that I was able to ride Batman considering how long it's been closed...

-Ride Count-
Batman - 5x
Mind Bender - 3x
Sky Screamer - 1x
Scream Machine - 1x
Acrophobia - 2x
Twisted Cyclone - 1x

I was there yesterday as well, but in the morning! Had a great time. Sunday mornings are pretty much the only times I go to the park these days. In and out quick before the crowds hit. I got 4 rides in on TC and like it even more than the first time I rode it. It's just a blast. Impossible to not love it, and the praise I heard from others around me was very high. Got a handful of rides in on Goliath, Mindbender, and a round lucky 7 on Batman (I didn't realize it was closed earlier this week, but man I forgot how much I love Batman clones), and I found the atmosphere and operations very pleasant on the whole. TC takes a little time to load, but it's not horrible. Out by 12:15, and had a great time.

I went to the park today. I walked around the splash water falls area. I noticed it was closed again. It has been closed since June. The water guns have been detached and only one car was on the attraction. I wonder what is going on

I Love Donkeys!

There is no doubt that there is a lot of mystery going around on that ride on its "potential" removal. Seeing as how SFOG has plenty of water rides to cool off in the summer, Log Jamboree, Thunder River, and DD Bucket Blasters which is enough for the park. I wouldn't be surprised if Splashwater Falls is gonna bite the dust soon. Or heck! maybe it will be themed to Aquaman like SFOT considering that ride is literally "next'" to DC Super Friends. Oh well, we will find out soon enough what the 2019 attraction will be for SFOG at the end of August. (please be a flat ride)
Top 5 - 1. New Texas Giant 2. Batman: The Ride 3. Twisted Cyclone 4. Georgia Scorcher (SFOT) 5. Titan

Thank you for posting this video. It really shows what a RMC conversion can do to re-vitalize an old coaster. No can dispute that the RMC conversion is a significant upgrade!
