No need to wait for any "source quote to get back to you. Common sense prevails.


There was also talk of relocating it within the park or sending it to another park that would take it. I personally don't know the geography of Dorney that well so I'm not sure where they could put it. Also, we need to remember, this park dumps a lot of money each year into maintenance, but they would make money every year with this new space. Also lets be real, the park is hardly ever crowded enough on the dry side to ever get real lines, but if they moved it to another park, they could market it as a brand new coaster and at a different park like MiA or Valleyfair, it'd be the best and most popular ride in the park and it'd actually draw a line, while saving those parks a ton of money over building a brand new coaster

They would've announced its closure by now. Its not happening so there is no reason to even speculate.

It's built into the valley in the back corner of the park where Hercules was located. It was designed with this landscape specifically in mind.

Even still, though us enthusiasts may crap on it, Hydra is one of the park's main marketing draws. There's no way it's being relocated either within the park or elsewhere.

Um what? No f*cking way the park is removing Hydra. That's just... No. And I don't even like the thing. That's the dumbest bit of speculation I've read in this thread yet, and that's saying something.

I know, right? That's the most popular ride in the park. On some Bring-A-Friend days in July, it might be a station wait!

My head hurts from reading that "speculation."

Instagram is the last place you should be going for industry news.
