    What a shame…. One of the most unique, fun and exciting flat rides ever! Besides the roller coasters, that is the one ride I always looked forward to riding every time I made the trek to six flags New England. This is extremely disappointing!

      We’ve lost a lot of flats over the years. Between Time Warp and Catapult, I don’t know what’s worse. Now the only inverting flat is Twister. We all know that Twister is on it’s last leg as it is.

    This was one of the attractions I most wanted to ride at SFNE. I have never visited SFNE, but Catapult was near the top of my list of rides I wanted to experience there, especially since it was a former Astroworld attraction (another park I never got to visit).

    Seems like such a waste to have invested so much time/money into getting it running reliably only to get rid of it. At least SFMM had the sense to send Deja Vu (now Goliath) to SFNE after so much had gone into making it an at least somewhat reliable ride!

      It needed a new brand. We’re thinking that S&S no longer manufactured that specific part so they decided to just scrap it. Definitely sad.

    So sad. I really wish they didn’t have to remove it for good!!!

    I hope we got something just as unique in it’s spot for 2014 along with the 400ft. SkyScreamer!

    I really don’t want to see it gone but if it had to be gone then okay. They need more rides. There are to many roller coasters.

    Catapult/Swat was the Prototype S&S Sky Swatter and I was fortunate to ride it when it was operating at the S&S Plant in Logan, Utah in 2002. It operated spectacularly at the plant!
