^Bingo! The land underneath NU is dirt. The basement of the mall basically runs along the exterior of the park...so they can definitely dig down if they so desire.

R.I.P. I thoroughly enjoyed this ride. Hopefully, they can replace it with something as high quality as this ride. (I.E. Brain Surge was a great addition)

That actually looked really fun despite me not liking spinning rides. Sad to see it go, I've never seen one of those things at any other park besides Nickelodeon Universe. Let's hope they get a great ride to replace the great ride they just got rid of.

LOL, I think some of you were ROTO-SHOOk a bit too much to remember how terrible these rides were. YAY PROGRESS!

I rode the Iron Eagle at SFA during it's first season (Before it broke constantly requiring parts flown in from Italy...) and I can say it was not a bad ride. Two sick-sacks WAAAAY up. It really did it's job very well as a twirl and hurl only could.

I found the Roto-Shake to be an "ok" flat ride. No where near as intense as a Top Spin running a good program, and certainly more fun that a kiddie ride. I dunno, it just never really did anything for me, and I don't miss it at the 3 or 4 parks I've ridden one at, where they are now gone.

She turned me into a donkey! I got better...

Not going back for a while now. One of the best rides there, with no line ever. Hope it finds a nice home. RIP

Before Timberland Twister (or Fairly Odd Coaster as its referred to now?) it was probably the most intense ride in the park, but honestly no big loss. I'm glad I got a chance to ride it, but it was generally a ride I tended to skip in recent visits.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

What? The best ride there always has been and still continues to be the Atomic Smasher! I love that thing!
