This probably isn’t related but it is on the route to either Six Flags Darien Lake or great escape. While filling up with gas at a gas station at exit 48A. I saw what I believe is 2 sections of the Batman ride from Astroworld.
I got it on my phone but I don’t know how to download them to the computer.
Yeah, Lodi would be a logical stop between Houston and Great Escape. The place in question is a big truck stop where I-76 starts and heads east from I-71 (71 is the big north-south corridor across Ohio). My guess from there is up 71 to I-271, then I-90 through PA and NY.
A LOT of water slide pieces have been flying through the area the last two weeks. I've seen 4 different truck loads of water slide pieces around I-71 and I-76 through the last month. Most of them looked used. I've seen some rusty red ones, dark blue, and what looked to be either teal, or some warn out green color. Don't know much about the waterslide status at parks...other than GL slashing and gutting and ripping out their expansion plans for phase 2...which reminds me A LOT of SFWoA "what ever happened to the volcano plans". Don't get me started on that ;)

The Travel Channel (or one of those type of cable stations) did an episode on the "Best Truck Stops In The World" and they featured one at the Akron/Lodi 76/71 exit. I guess its the Hilton of Truckers.

Back when the park went from SFO to SFWoA the park announced future plans to say how they wanted to more or less combine the parks. One of the main things they pushed to the public was, "Building a 6 acre lushly landscaped tropical land where guests will walk through a volcano and rain forest to reach numerous interactive areas with exotic birds, reptiles, flamingos, marsupials, swimming tigers and alligators." This was rumored, to go between the parks. Along with those plans, they also annouced a motion simulator IMAX movie, NEW deep diving submarine ride, constructing a monorail system and more.
