On the one hand, the loss of Pittfall is sad, but I *LOVE* Frisbee type rides (giant or not) so Good Job Kennywood!

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

I also am sad to see Pitt Fall gone, but its location for a frisbee-type ride is absolutely perfect. Should be an amazing ride.

Since the Pitt Fall didn't really take up space, they should bring back a modified version of it. Same style of ride, but better equipment.

"X" marks the spot for a perfect space. This area could house a drop ride that is a little smaller and still keep the existing Phantom queue.

^ Don't tell me you're one of those people who also thinks Cedar Point should build multiple flats in TTD's infield. :roll:

I just don't view Kennywood as a park that would cram flats in a spot like that particular one.

^ No, not by far... Unlike CP, Kennywood actually used THIS space at one point for the Centennial Celebration so the idea is not that far fetched to use it again for something.

I doubt that, they said the reason for removing the pitfall was that the popularity had decreased, and it was not justified to keep the ride running anymore.
Nr 1 Liseberg and Gröna Lund fanboy!
Piraten is *the* roller coaster (after finally riding Expedition Geforce, I'll admit, it was pretty freaking awesome too!) .
