I highly doubt they will relocate just the waterfall.

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.


Also, I forgot about what Coasterbill mentioned. I guess this really is the end for Twister :( . On another note, anyone here think Pirate will also eventually get replaced?

:lol: That’s great.

And don’t worry, Six Flags was never going to maintain the fountain either. They would let it dry up and then one day randomly 3 years from now maybe they’d fix it for like six days before it stopped working again and... well... repeat process. That’s how they roll.

Or maybe they’ll pull a Tantrum and reuse the existing situation. Use Twister’s queue and exit and keep the plaza with the fountain. You never know, if possible it would cut costs, which they are all for.

They are modifying the current cue and that’s about all that’s staying. If you look at the drawings the entire twister set up minus the queue is under the new ride’s location. No waterfall, front “plaza”, exit ramp or any of that will be remaining - based on the drawings provided

I came across this in the early morning. It's a Vaporwave music video featuring Darien Lake.
