I hadn't heard, so yesterday I was surprised to see that the Catapult (fly swatter) has been removed at SFNE.

Also, Bizarro still has the soundtrack noise equipment box on the trains as well as those view blocking speaker headrests.
At least the shin guards are gone.

Well, that sucks.

Thorpe Park across the pond has the last S&S Sky Swatter left; The doggone thing probably will close by time I ever get a chance to get over there. I remember when Chuck (CoasterFanatic) said that the experience was pretty much 'been there done that'. That kinda slow 'head over heels' rotation of Catapult does kinda look repetitive.

I loved the concept of the ride, and thought it was fun, save for the very tight restraints. It was a one-and-done for me. I think I've been to SFNE twice, and the first time it was not operational.
