    SFA's Skull Mountain Set To Close

    Post  Ccron10 on Sat Jun 11, 2011 3:46 pm

    So far 2012 looks to be a big coaster year for parks and there is no other park that needs a new ride more than SFA. From Screamscape:
    (6/10/11) In a surprising bit of news, Six Flags America has announced that Skull Mountain, the flume ride formerly known as the Typhoon Sea Coaster, will close forever after July 10th to make way for a large new attraction in 2012.The park will put on a few special opportunities to bid the ride farewell, such as placing a boat on the midway for pictures and a special Fair Thee Well Weekend sendoff on July 9-10, special pirate makeovers and even a “Last Ride” auction with the proceeds going to fund the National Roller Coaster Museum. You’ve been warned… so get to the park now for one last ride before Skull Mountain is forced to “Walk the plank!”
    While it's always sad to see a ride go, but I hope it's something other than a Big Spin coaster replacing this.

    This is sad. It's one of the few rides with actual theming to it at the park. Skull Mountain and the surrounding area has so much more charm than Gotham City. Gotham City is just plopped down in a field with very minimal, cheesy theming. But I really like the areas like Coyote Creek, Skull Island and Nantucket.
