  1. Y'all.....this is not the place for us to discuss Terpy's "disappearance." 

    Those who know him have mentioned that he is fine in various other threads...can we please stay on the tread subject? 

    I'm the one who brought it up. I was just concerned as I always enjoyed reading his posts. I see no problem in hoping he is okay. I didn't happen to see any other mentionings of him as I don't read every single thread.

    Don't worry chugh43, it won't be brought up from me again.

  2. As Terpy liked to say: Line length is not an indicator of popularity.
    To add my own two cents: Why? Assuming that each train or cycle is mostly full, there is functionally no difference in total ridership regardless of whether the ride typically has a 5-minute wait or a 45-minute wait, because the number of trains/cycles dispatched per hour is not affected by the line length. The same number of people are riding it either way; the only difference is that many people think one ride isn't worth losing more than 5 minutes in line, while many people think the other ride is worth losing 45 minutes of their day.
    But that too, is not an indicator of whether the ride should be removed, else all small rides would be removed and replaced with shiny new record-breaking roller coasters. Each ride fills a need in the park. The Bat, in combination with The Racer, serves as the "next step" for a 48" child after conquering Adventure Express and Backlot Stunt Coaster. Congo Falls also helps fill a hole: it and White Water Canyon are the only two rides with a 46" requirement, so it gives those who have conquered everything in Planet Snoopy (where the biggest height requirement is 44") something new to do while waiting to hit that magical height of 48".
    Essentially, some people here are trying to make it as simple as "this has short lines and thus isn't popular, so let's get rid of it", but that is wrong on multiple levels. There are many things to take into consideration here.

    Hey guys it's been awhile since I have been on here, but reading through old posts I gave noticed Terpy's absence. I hope he is okay?
