I thought I had posted this but I never did so here is what used to be where El Loco was. There was 2 reasons why this got removed. 1 there was a leak in the track and 2 to put in this new ride.

Actually, the Ride was Removed Due to Low Ridership and Maintenance Costs. Any Leaks in the Concrete or Fiberglass Trough could have been easily and inexpensively repaired. The Ride was simply occupying Valuable Real Estate that could be better utized. The Rides Low Ridership and Limited Operating Season mixed with the Constant Cost of Maintenance, Chemicals to Treat the Water, and Humidity in the Facility Spelt it's doom. I mean, we're talking about a ride that originally used Five 20 or 16 Passenger Boats with Hour Long Lines when it first opened and only used Two of those Boats with 2 Closed Rows and a Decreased Capacity Per Boat of 12 Passengers for 18 Years with no lines.

Goes to show you how fast the GP throws good things away as mundane. Sad, really.

That is what I feared. I mean the park is the one who cut capacity to the ride, etc.
