First they closed the Tiger side and now the Lion side will be closing early next year. Screamscape is reporting it is a budget cut which is a shame considering how much they charge to get into the park and have already closed other attractions in the park for budget reasons like the Egypt walkthrough near Montu. Screamscape is also reporting it will be SBNO rather than demolished.

I was looking forward to trying Gwazi and was very disappointed in how rough the entire coaster was so I won't miss it. Now if they were to remove Scorpion...
