    Sad about Titan but I'd have been astonished if any park had wanted to buy it. It's weird that they were in such a rush to demolish the station but nothing else!

    Might have been where most of the copper and precious metals (in all of the electronics and controls) were located, meaning fastest revenue input.

    That, or they wanted to get that 'fiddly' stuff out before rolling in the big demolition equipment. :p

    You're probably onto something here. There's a few coasters in still operating Asian parks that have had the station removed, but the rest of the ride was left standing.

    And just like that, the link no longer works, it sends me to a 404. The page no longer exists. Meaning Zaturn has been sold!
    I'm wondering where it will turn up.

    It was most likely sold some time ago since it was dismantled way before the rest of the park, presumably so it could be shipped to its new owners.
