Does Storm Chaser not load both sides anymore? 

To clarify, I was talking about Twisted Twins when referring to loading on both sides.  Storm Chaser, as jtro pointed out only ever loaded on one side of the station.  I mentioned it because like Firehawk, it used to load on both sides and had central exit stairs.

Storm Chaser only has one side to load from since it received its Rocky Mountain conversion (it used to be two separate coasters).  I think you might be thinking of Storm Runner at Hershey (the Intamin launch coaster), that when I rode it back in 2011 was utilizing both sides for loading the trains.

^ Im taking about Storm Chaser when it was Twisted Twins, although it was never true “dual loading” its station layout was practically identical to Firehawks prior to its conversion.  Once Firehawk is gone, you could build a racing coaster like Twisted Twins if you wanted.  The design of both stations would allow for either a split loading scenario or a dueling scenario, depending on the ride installed.

 

Edit: I feel like you may not have been talking to me lol

I personally think it'll be a haunt attraction 

I am not sure how I feel about this. It's nice going into Wolf Pack and somewhat reliving the past. At the same time, I find I hate seeing more and more buildings sitting vacant and tacky the majority of the year only to be used as mazes two months in the year. Some of the mazes are fairly underwhelming. Personally, I'd rather they repurpose and go all out with those venues instead of adding more.

 It gets to be too much like real life. Tons of unused buildings everywhere, right next to where they're building brand new buildings. Or is that just in Indianapolis? LOL

Ha, very true! I'm reminded of that Talking Heads song, "Flowers."

"This was a Pizza Hut! Now it's covered with daisies. You got it, you got it."

Until I came across this tread the only thought I had was that the station would just be demolished along with the ride. But I'm sure with some alterations the building could be repurposed. At this point, I feel like the most obvious choice would be a new haunt.
