My thought here (scary, huh?) is that possibly the employee was either confusing, confused, or referring to "replacement" coaster the incoming Coastersaurus...or a flat or something ELSE going into the spot where Spellbreaker is supposedly "vacating"?
Any locals that can let me know if Spellbreaker is indeed SBNO or gone? Looking at going on Solace trip...thanks!

No way! I hope they keep it. I think they have plenty of land for more rides. It's a fun litytle ride...though not as long as that one at Aerocity Parc (that we were discussing a bit back):
So what's this about Coastersaurus?
I was actually hoping for some type of log ride.

Well, it is good to know I got the "good" Batflyer model, PF at IoA. I knew SDGC at PKI was a Caripro, but had NO idea about all the intrigue surrounding PF...
All of the Batflyer models are listed here:
If in fact Legoland wants to get rid of Spellbreaker, I can think of more than a few parks that could use a "cheap" upgrade to the kiddie sections...;)

Yeah, I heard rumors too about Spellbreaker being removed. Don't know the exact details as to why, but it is a bummer. Besides being the only family invert on the West Coast, I thought the sensation of flight was the best due to the individual cars. Now if only it was a bit longer, capacity was definitely a problem with this particular model.
Don't know if Coastersaurus is the replacement, but this kiddie coaster will be the centerpiece of a new themed area:
I'm also waiting for that long rumored pirate themed log flume ;o)

Hmm, the article didn't say anything about it being near castle hill.
The firefighting attraction sounds cool.
Ya know, they could send that Spellbreaker on down to Sea World. ;)

Spellbreaker has always been a slow loading capacity nightmare. I'm not surprised the park would want to replace it.
Thankfully I gots me credit already [or two credits, depending on how you count].

The new coaster is on the other side of the park and from what I can gather from the press release, it doesn't sound like any of the other new attractions would go where Spellbreaker is either. So unless they are tearing it down leaving empty space, I would say this is just a rumor at this point.

Slow loading nightmare is right. When I visited the park last summer, the ride would break down once every two hours or so. It was/is? a good ride. Very short, but still exciting. It had some sudden jerks, but nothing to get excited over. The elevator lift system is very cool, but even w/ two tracks, the ride can't reach an acceptable capacity.
