^ If they knew they weren't going to be able to handle the power, then why did they get IJ in the first place? Why didn't they give this to PCar instead, and then give PKD another coaster--something that isn't launched. It's been YEARS since we received a large, non-launching coaster. Technically, the last one was Hurler in 1994. The only other non-launched coasters we've gotten since then have been Ricochet and Taxi Jam.
It seems like for every LIM coaster that's down, the 'It's down because the park doesn't have enough power' theory surfaces. It's true that alot of people in this country need a calculator to add 25 to 26, but I can't accept that parks can't plan that well.
While theory #1 may not be implausable, wouldn't you think PKD would have learned their lesson after the first time if this were the case?
Well, if we see FOF's building come down, then we may be able to safely assume that it is leaving. Until then, maybe we can hope that CF will have different plans than Paramount and keep the ride where it is. *** Edited 6/27/2006 8:46:24 PM UTC by rablat5***
If you don't believe it (which you shouldn't, that's the stupidest theory I've ever heard) then why do you keep bringing it up every time someone asks about the ride?
It was closed for a retheme ... Paramount gave that information away last year if you were really paying any attention. Now, if that retheme goes through or not considering the sale, that remains to be seen.
PKI got IJ first, PKD gets the FoF retheme first.

Assuming that FoF is the same at PKI vs PKD, then isn't all of the theming in the line before the ride and in the station? The actual ride is mostly in the dark, minus the few colored lights.
IF they are re-theming the ride and or station, I can see why it would be closed. IF they are re-theming the line, why wouldn't they be able to re-route the line using either the exit or an emergency door?
^You see theres this theme park in Orlando, quite popular, they designed a coaster which had a rock and roll themed and had a soundtrack by some guys named Aerosmith, ever hear of them? Anyways the ride is quite popular and for some reason CBS thought, hey heres an idea why dont we do the exact same thing, but insert our brand (MTV) into it!
^I like the sci fi theme to, but I was just responding the poster's comment about how an MTV based attraction would work (he claimed it made no sense) and cleary Disney has made it work so well they are now two of them.
I guess some creative person could make it work, but it wouldn't fit into the area of the park it's in, and it would be kind of a rip-off. Why not go for something more unique? I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
