^Wow! Those look... interesting.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?

It is surprising to see the ride retired so soon after the Sea Viper upgrades were completed. I wonder what must have changed in the four years to make the ride less capable/reasonable to operate now than it was when the upgrades first happened.

^ There's been a lot of talk about welding and correcting the track on the Australian forum. It probably just wasn't economical anymore.

The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)

^Fair enough. Unfortunately, Arrow loopers are all on borrowed time.

^Even when the ride's not great, it's always hard for me to see it being torn down like that.

Man! It really sucks for a Classic Ride to be gone! In my opinion this destroys the Australia Amusements! (Not what I meant!) But things won't be the same forever! I hope they will get a new exciting ride, or coaster!

I love donkeys more than me.

Not sad or surprised to see this one go. Unpopular ride with maintenance issues taking up a chunk of land in a park that's very tight for space. They were literally storing pieces of old rides underneath the lift hill, and it is the least family-friendly ride in a park that is aimed at a younger audience. I'm sure whatever it's replaced with will be better, no question.

Yeah, hopefully a Gerstlaurer, or a B&M!
