I'm normally the first one to dance on the grave of a splash boat but I kind of hate that idea. We were there in June and the park was hotter than the surface of the sun (all 10 days in the 10 day forecast were triple digits) and the ride had a packed queue all day long.

We still didn't ride Auquaman because I mean... f*ck those things, but the queue was full almost all day. I wouldn't be shocked if the line topped an hour.

They don't have an attached water park and El Aserradero is right around Coal Cracker and Frozen Ever After on the list of rides where the "You may get wet" warning sign exists purely for decoration or as a practical joke. Assuming they don't replace it with a drenching water ride and replace it with something that's much cheaper to operate and easier to maintain (which I mean... probably) this would leave a park that sees triple digits (or close to it) almost all summer long with one ride that actually gets people wet.

That sounds terrible :lol:

That said... it's Screamscape.

How wet does Roaring Rapids get people? I skipped it on my visit (when it was also triple digits) but it had a super long queue.

This would certainly be a rapids ride that should have an unavoidable waterfall.

^^ I'm glad we went to Texas the week before Christmas. We had daily highs in the mid to upper 60s all week. I can't imagine waiting in lines in triple digit heat.

They removed Power Surge at SFFT to make way for WWGLC. My guess is the same thing is happening here. Although, I'm not sure an RMC Raptor would be considered a "large footprint" ride.

Donkeys give me orgiastic scream!

HUGE difference tho, in that SFFT has an attached/included water park.

so losing one of the THREE water rides on the dry side of Fiesta for a new coaster? yeah, that was a fantastic trade off.

with Hurricane Harbor across the freeway? simply cannot see SFOT removing Aquaman from that spot, directly across from justice League.

guess we will see.

^The rumor mill is definitely swirling right now. They key thing to watch for is some sort of announcement from the park about this being Aquaman's final season ect.

Over Georgia is removing their Shoot the Chutes. It was confirmed at ACE Winter Warm-Up that it “would not be returning this season.”

There's definitely something going on! These photos were taken by Sam Delmar, otherwise known as Savage Mister. They show what looks like surveying going on near Aquaman!

I was there two weeks ago and there was "construction" going on at the loading dock now thinking back they could have been easily removing stuff
