They actually talked about it on my local news saying that it was going be it's last season and that they were going to replace it with a new coaster.

It was closed for extensive modification, and it caught fire while a construction crew was working on it.

It's also a wood coaster that they are trying to turn into a hybrid coaster.

I think the deal was more that it was an extensive refurbishment/addition/slight restructure, but it was to be basically the same roller coaster.
