Don't know if this is true, but screamscape is reporting that SFMM will close S:TE for the 2004 season due to budget problems. Anyone else hear About this?

Would it be feasible to replace the LSMs with a hydaulic launch system?

^If they could it would be expensive, not a good thing for a park with "budget problems".

Hmm, a park with budget problems is planning a coaster for 2005.
That sure sounds feesible.

Time to break out my "Our Lady Peace" album out! ;)

Probably a good idea to remove it, actually. That ride is embarrassingly outdated. Although the space it occupies probably isn't good for anything else.

I think the budget problems is the costs of firing the LSMs for every launch when California has had power issues the last few years. The overhaul would be a one time expense however.

Hmmm....Magic Mountian always seems to get a new coaster every time Six Flags is in debt....I guess it must be an "exception".

"Although the space it occupies probably isn't good for anything else."

It was good enough for an Arrow Pipeline, which is one of the other coasters SFMM was considering at the time.

The only thing that land would be good for would be a taller, faster version of Dragster. ;)
