Could they not just remake it? Luke, build a new one from scratch? I liked it while it worked
The problem with that idea is that S&S discontinued the Sky Swat years ago, so even if Thorpe wanted to completely rebuild it they wouldn't be able to as there would be no-one to supply the parts.
I do believe that it's not impossible for them to do, but the parts aren't mass-produced and they literally have to be made specially. I heard that it's major downtime over the last season was down to them waiting for a part to a certain extent. Even if they could get their hands on the parts still (I'm not entirely sure on that situation in fairness), I don't think it'd be very plausable for them to replace the ride entirely bit by bit. Besides, the ride puts too much strain on itself and (now atleast) it needs to be balanced more or less perfectly before it can even start! I love Slammer but it's time will come soon. I've seen 3 dispatches in about an hour which is a bit ridiculous.
