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.

The new themed area and the new rides sound fun, but a family coaster, a simulator and a water ride still can't replace Cop Car Chase, IMO they should spend their money on a new (real) coaster.

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?

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.
