With firehawk getting removed from KI, could batwing be next in the future? The maintenance guys did say it was a “maintenance nightmare”, and that’s probaly why it’s closed for the rest of the season.

I'm guessing that they have trouble getting replacement parts from Vekoma? I mean, the Flying Dutchman's aren't bad rides, just lying on my back and staring into the sun isn't a great start to a ride.

And if Batwing does get chopped up, does a Raptor or T Rex go in it's place?

Why would you guess that? Vekoma is still in business and the model is still available for purchase.

A park halfway across the country owned by a completely different company removes a coaster so this means you guys are getting a RMCraptor?

From what I understand, that is Vekoma's new Dutchman on their website. Different parts, etc.

In fact, the train hasn't really run much this year at all.

As for the Haunted Attractions, I really prefer the older route they did for Hall Manor: The Return of Eleanor (where it would enter/exit by the Batman Arena; and give a better view of the ruins of the house)
