Park News - (9/10/18) I'm not sure how true this is, but an odd rumor came in over the weekend claiming that El Diablo could leave at the end of the 2018 season. Anyone else heard this, or is it complete nonsense? Personally I’m not buying it just yet...
My initial feeling was...
...but then I thought about it a little bit more and to be honest, when factoring in a couple more things that we know, the claim may not be that far off. We know that they walled off the Splashwater Oasis complex in the Golden Kingdom. Also, at Riding of the Bulls on Saturday, park president John Winkler told those attending that the 2020 attraction will be “tall", "made of steel”, and has been in the works for a while. This heavily hints towards a coaster, which would fit nicely into the potential area freed up by removing Oasis and Diablo.
I still lean towards "bulls**t" about El Diablo leaving, but who knows.
^Coming to Six Flags Magic Mountain in 2020................surprisingly Magic Mountain is now the only Six Flags park to not have a Super Loop or have one coming next year. Even Great Escape has a Super Loop.

Then again this is Screamscape so everything is taken with a grain of salt.
I know your kidding, but I read a rumor that this is exactly whats happening Now obviously there's no way to be sure if its true, (although apparently this rumor also originates from Riding of the Bull, in which one of the staff members told a couple of people it would be leaving) but I honestly won't be surprised if this happens, and then the "big project" for 2020's ride entrance is located where El Diablo is currently.
