I would not say it really stopped. My homepark AW just last year sent off Texas Tornado to Cali, and Feista Texas shipped away Joker to New Orleans. I am sure there are many other moves, those are just two that are dear to me.
So IMO the irde rotation program has really never stopped, I think it just had a few slower years.

I'll take a stab at it [and this is purely a guess]: Flashback is leaving SFMM. To keep the coaster count the park will add two coasters: a B&M flyer and PGA's former shuttle, purchased from Anton's son who is rehabing it, and will enclose it a-la Turbine.

Mr Hyde's Nasty Fall did indeed come from SFGAm where it was the imfamous Edge
Another ride at SFGAm came from the original ride rotation program. That is the Condor. I know it was at a few other parks before coming to a rest at Great America. One of them was a Texas park I believe.
