Uh no...well yes and no.

 

No, because the new coaster is more family-oriented and will be built in the Wonderland Studios kids area.

 

Yes, because part of the "Lethal Weapon refurbishment budget" is now invested in this new coaster.

 

The park will also build a new water ride (I'd place my bets on a Splash Battle or a small log flume) and a Stargate Atlantis simulator / theatre.

Well PGA took out their biggest ride for waterslides

Stealth was the worlds first flying coaster and made the park worth to visit.

But also Greezed Lightnin' was a great rollercoaster. Why did they remove this piece of history?

I have no ides they just have been on a ride removal rampage for the last few seasons

 

Try ever since Paramount took over, classic park rides had been ripped out year after year unlike anything the park has ever seen in it's history. And alot of times without equivalent replacements or no replacements at all.

 

As far as GL, the B.S. I heard was that PGA claimed replacement parts were no longer available, so they had to rip it out. We all know this isn't true, more like Paramount didn't feel like spending the money to keep this classic coaster running.

This image was recently posted to http://www.coastertalk.de/ for a new attraction for Movie Park Germany. Some are suggesting that it's another KUKA Arm type dark ride like Forbidden Journey, or maybe a Spiderman type of vehicle. I see what kind of looks like BOTH in that picture! Any ideas? Here's the image:

^i did read yesterday that the gremdlins (and track?) have been removed from the building.. and there are (were) plans to extend the building..

 

In any case the Terror Train halloween attraction wasn't there this year, so probably they are indeed already working in the building.
