Still sitting there in the parking lot, not sure if some pieces are in storage as you stated, but doesn't look like it's going anywhere anytime soon.
As for the reason, both of ya'll are actually right. Reliability, costly maintenance and low ridership (1 painful ride was enough for most people) were the main reasons for it's removal.
As far as Anton's coasters go, for me, this is "the one that got away"... :(
Maybe it was rain mixed with extreme heat and humidity which caused the problems. But they installed an anti-rollback on Thrillers lifthill, so "slippery when humid" should not have occured anymore.
