I just got back from SFMM today. It was buy a day get a year free so when I went to the season pass office (right next to flashback) asked the worker who was taking my picture about it and she said that she heared her manager talking about them refurbishing it but didnt know anything else.
I hope not, they really need to just get rid of the ride. Unless they make it some kind of indoor themed attraction, I doubt it will have many riders and seems like a waste of money. Sell it to some small park that needs it.
The layout is fine, but the whole structure would have to be redone with higher clearances, it seems, to allow for lapbars. Or perhaps they could add high sides to the cars and cover them with a roof. ;)
It's a shame Intamin didn't take the design further and come up with a lap-bar model. I think it's a great ride concept.
^where would they put it the rest of the park seems to already have major improvements. I think it might go where psyclone was and the area where it is now an extention to the loonietoons kids zone place.
Also where the Season pass office is is exactly next to the entrance of the ride and it looks aweful espacialy scense its connected to the season pass office.
