I believe it was moved to the Six Flags at St. Louis with the thought of installing it there. However, it never was and was eventually scrapped.

What took its place?

According to parktimes.com the Shock Wave was added in 1978 and the Big Bend was removed in 1979. The area that Big Bend occupied was partly over the sports car rides. The Looney Tunes children's rides and Splash Water Falls takes up most of the space where Big Bend operated. The sports car rides were removed to make way for Splash Water Falls. You can still see some of the concrete footers for Big Bend in the "creek" alongside the walkway that connects Looney Tunes Land to Good Times Square.
