Thanks, found the brilliant "where are they now" thread after I posted. Was a top ride, sit on the front and scream :)

What happened to the NEW FOR 2010 spider crabs, they were making a big fuss over, I think they only lasted 1 year...

also what ever happened to the Coffin Photo op in Haunted Hollow?
(the one that got replaced with the 2 gargoyals that growl and fire smoke out their bum)

also also what happened to the smoke machines behind the gargoyals in Haunted Hollow?

also also also what happend to the Woodland Walk?

also also also also what did they do with the old Franklyn Skelvin and Phil costumes (I saw the old Patch costume in the hotel last scarefest.

This one I actually know the answer too (I think).
Its at Chessington, along the hill pathway between Vampire and Wild Asia/Land of the Dragons

I know the one you mean Dom, but it was definitely used at the start of Molly Crowe in 2015, so I thought Chessington's must have been a replica? Unless it was taken there recently, after Molly finished.

It was in Vampires queue line before Molly Crowe, so it's possible it came back up then ended up in its new location on return

Now I think about it, I think I remember seeing the one at chessington on YouTube then going to towers scarefest and seeing it at Alton too....so they probably have 2!

I'd lean towards assuming that there is one at Towers and at Chessington, I just can't see them lugging it half way across the country and back.

Did they? I've not heard about that, can you explain?

The theming was used in 2015 (not sure if they retained it last year too) by Warwick Castle in The Haunted Hollows.

“What ever happened to...”

The black hole?

Did the original ride get moved to a ride in Germany did I hear at some point?

Close, but no cigar!

It was relocated to Furuvik in Sweden under the name Rocket.

Bit of a late reply, but quite a lot of the ride is actually up by Merlin Studios North, behind Cloud Cuckoo Land.

You are joking?

Why remove a ride and keep part of its remains for years? That’s quite depressing :(

Assuming they're not salvaging bits off of it, which is somewhat unlikely, the disposal costs would be pretty expensive.
