    I doubt they'd change the layout post announcement but you are correct. A jo-jo roll would be interesting but that's really it as the hang time may hurt legs worse then the airtime.

    I imagine the tracks been removed but theres no reason to remove the actual wooden structure of the old lift. Its not without president either.
    If you look at this old shot of SF New Englands Riverside Cyclone (now Wicked Cyclone post RMC conversion)
    Early on one of the rides turnarounds was reprofiled to lower forces and you can see the old track from before the ride was reprofiled underneath the existing track.

    Nice! I like these little bits of history being left behind. RCDB mentions some old track that was visible under the MCBR on the SFMM Colossus following some reprofiling, but I haven't seen any pictures of that. I assume it's gone now that the ride has been RMCd.

    Kinda.... It happened in the 2000-2001 off season after the park switched the Morgan trains for PTC trains, and it was actually the first drop that was shorten.

    And for Magic Mountain, the double down replaced with a block is seen here - https://rcdb.com/26.htm#p=82 (here it is before being removed - https://rcdb.com/26.htm#p=5471 )

    It really was not. They put the top piece up, then decided to say :emoji_zipper_mouth: you and lowered it back to the ground.

    I like this picture the most. It gives you a better feel for the enormity of the structure itself and the work they're doing. And now I'm more excited! :D
