    That ride has been a round for a long time and has had little to no problems. Yanking it out is a bit premature

    My theory is based on Windseeker's fate after its short-lived stint at Knott's as well after similar incidents...

    I get your reasoning. though I would point out that windseaker had constant issues. do to the wind if I recall correctly.

    It wasn't due to wind. It was sensor issues, and the state wouldn't approve of the new emergency evacuation system that was going to be added.

    Well, at the Coaster Madness Q&A today at Dorney, I was told that the skeleton key room add-ons at all the Cedar Fair parks have been discontinued, the reasons being it was getting to be too much to commandeer one of their “best scare actors” to operate it, they’ve instead decided to concentrate on enhancing the experiences at the regular haunted mazes. Video coming soon...

    Interesting. I guess it's good to focus more on the mazes but sometimes that doesn't counter loosing something beloved.
