Yeah, Six Flags seems to have a pretty clear "remove every single top spin in the chain and give the spare parts to Great Adventure" plan. I'm sure that once they run out of parts that one will be gone too. I don't hate the rides but I don't really care all that much either. :lol:

Any word on re-themes?

On Page 16 of the plans of installation it marks that old bridge above Tin Lizzy's (which is labeled as Tin Izzy's :lmao: ) as "covered pedestrian bridge," is it coming back? :omg:

If you read into this document far enough, there is a confirmation that Twister is leaving. :(
However, they are apparently putting it into storage, so there may be hope left for Twister returning elsewhere in the park.

Again, no... no there is not. Six Flags has been removing every single Top Spin (like EVERY SINGLE top spin) in the chain one at a time over the last few years and presumably using them for parts for Great Adventure’s ride which will probably join them on the scrap heap once they run out of free parts.

They are removing all of these things at an amazing rate and at no point have they relocated a single one of them. That ride’s fate was sealed as soon as Six Flags came in to operate the park.

Even Cedar Fair has removed a large chunk of their top spins as well. They don't seem to be maintenance friendly.

I wouldn’t get your hopes up, that was just being used to point out landmarks in the area for reference. As nice as it would be to have a more scenic route to take again, why would they divert traffic away from their shiny new ride?

For what it’s worth it’s nice to see a new ride in the back corner of the park. It looks like it’s going to be a great addition at a great location. I’m glad Six Flags made the decision to bring a popular request to the park!

I thought that document was really cool. I know it sounds geeky, but it is interesting to see some of those schematic diagrams showing how they are using existing pieces and how the overall site plan looks.

I will not miss twister at all. It was down more than it was operating the past few years. I will however miss the little waterfall in front of it. I thought that was a nice bit of scenery. Maybe they will move it somewhere else
