    The scrambler was removed from the dome after the 2004 season. Although the deaths played a role in the removal of the indoor scrambler, the park also needed a quick ride replacement where Jumbo was when they removed it.

    • Thanks! I will update the post with this info.

  • And the highly publicized “Screamin’ Eagles” flyers.

    And no more rumors about the old “nightmare at crack axle canyon” building?

    • Great question. As far as I’m aware, a show with the people from iLuminate will still be going in it. Things change all the time and I haven’t heard anything about it in a while. We’ll know in a few weeks though. A member who recently talked to the park was told that they would be officially announcing things soon.

    Nobody ever said anything about an iLuminate show. Somebody mentioned it because they saw the back of the bumper cars sign that said “a one of a kind experience” and jumped on spreading that rumor. Nobody or nowhere ever said anything about an iLuminate show.

    • I have been told by my own sources that an iLuminate type show will be going into the NIghtmare building. Screamscape also reported something similar. My source told me that before Screamscape posted it… The last time I heard anything about it was in February.

    There will be no show going into the Nightmare building. Just wait and see.

  • Ben

    I agree there is zero chance that the illuminate show will be going into the nightmare building. no show will ever go into the nightmare building The money it would take to turn that building into a play house would be much more expensive than to build one for scratch. The acoustics are terrible.

    • I never said it was confirmed or anything. I said exactly what I heard. I found out today that it is no longer happening through the Six Flags newsletter. Like I mentioned in my original comment about this subject, things change and get canceled all the time. The idea was far fetched, I know, but I can confirm that it was talked about. The last I heard anything about the project was in February. Also, at an ACE event, a rep from TGE said that the Nightmare building is an area of interest and they’re deciding what they can do with it. Changing it into a stage would be a big project but it would benefit them in the long run.
