I hope it's still open in a couple weeks when I'm there, but I'm all for floorless conversions to better the quality of a ride. I think standups have long since run their course and should be phased out, in my opinion. Vortex/Patriot at CGA is probably the closest comparison, and that's extremely fun as a smaller, more compact floorless. I've been wondering if/when we start to see Six Flags convert their standups also. It's only a matter of time I'd guess, but makes an interesting decision for the parks that already have a traditional floorless in their lineup.

I guess it will go as other announcements have gone where they will ANNOUNCE the closing of the ride on that particular day, but it will operate until a later date.
"B&M will NEVER build a coaster over 300 ft..." until 2012
"Cedar Fair will NEVER build a coaster taller than MF..." until 2015

Maybe they mean that 8/16 is the terminus of their jankyass support on Apocalypse.

New for 2018: Apocalypse gets a new support.

This is the post from this weekend... "voices from the past are speaking to you. Could it be Deja Vu?"

Possibly shuffle of Goliath at Six Flags New England to here? That was called Deja Vu in the past, correct? Also, that would bring back a inverted boomerang which I miss. Loved Two Face.

I think the Deja Vu comment is them saying that the track is familiar, but at the same time, different.
