    Is there any information about Känonen being sold or scrapped?

    It has apparently been sold to an unknown park in the USA.

    Zaturn was taken down a couple of months ago, see @roomraider 's post on the previous page, so it's probably well on its way to its new home by now.

    Actually a space just opened up for it here:

    Coincidence? I think not.

    Dorney seems a fairly likely possibility from what I've heard with the removal of Stinger.

    Oh god, is placing Zaturn over spots in parks going to become a new thing, like placing Kanonen over spots in parks briefly did?

    BUMP!

    I happened upon a tweet from a space shuttle related account that posted about the current status of the park. Supposedly all that remains is the shuttle model that sat in the middle of Venus GP.

    Cliché to say, but I'm sad to see this go to the scrapyard - except for you Zaturn... maybe? (Hopeful and curious to see it at a new park) For all its debatable merits in terms of actual ride enjoyment, Space World had a fair share of quirky and even unique rides, in pure Japanese fashion. The only Asian Arrow hyper and especially the first ever Maurer coaster weren't exactly topping my bucket list, but they definitely would have been a nice cred to get for Hipster bragging rights.

    The bigger picture of Japanese economic stagnation is again showing, with yet another small to mid-size quirky park closing for good...

    Not sure if it was mentioned here or not, but the latest I heard was Venus GP was sent to Rusutsu Resort (aka the Dive Loop Ultra Twister park). Don't think they plan on installing it, but at least it isn't scrapped (yet).

    Venus looked real good - I'm happy to hear that it isn't out the door just yet. It'd definitely make Rusutsu Resort worth the visit if I'm ever in that part of Japan.

    As for Titan...based on that first photo in Roomraider's tweet which shows that it's missing the station, it appears that it's currently on the way out. As @Coaster Hipster stated, it'd be a cool cred to have ridden because Arrow hypers are so rare, but the ride itself looks pretty meh.

    Down comes the space shuttle. Not very gently it seems.



    Crash....



    And judging by the close up here there wont be any saving Titan



    Venus however headed north to Hokkaido

    At least Venus gets to maybe live again, but RIP the only Asian Arrow Hyper.
