That, and since the show is used in several parks using an established script and full body costumes Time Warner doesn't have to approve every performer cast and re-approve the script which has been pre-recorded which make sit more economical in time and cost.

imo, the stunt arena would be good if they could utilize it wisely, the problem is fitting something in there that makes sense and is cost effective, maybe in the future it could be incorprated into a ride some how, if thats possible. although last season DIVE was supposed to be inside there then was quickly canceled without a reason, maybe the cost of a pool was to much durring a bankruptcy, id say in the future it may be used, but more then likely its fate is always going to be SBNO

The problem with the BSA is it has always been a bad place to do a show due to the proximity of the rides behind it and all the noise they make. It would make so much sense to just remove it or re-use it in some other way. That's a great spot for a drop tower...just remove the seats and use the building for a covered queue.

Two of the four noisy rides are gone, leaving the loudest two left (Batman and Nitro). They would have to have some type of show where people do not have to 100% focus on what the people are saying in the show in order to know what is happening.

This was recently mentioned in an article about Gary Goddard;

... back when Mark Shapiro was still at the helm of Six Flags, he realized they needed a big idea to fill the vacant stunt show theaters found at several of the chain's largest parks. Perhaps the most exciting concept developed was for that of a MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE action stunt spectacular. This concept would have seen the theaters enclosed in temporary canvas tent structures to allow for lighting control, and would have immersed the audience in the most special effects-intensive stunt show ever created.

 

One of the coolest things about the show would have been the marketing- as the new attraction would have been heralded by "self destructing" billboards(each with their own digital “countdown clock”) that would have been “self-destructed” on the date the message expired, revealing a new message behind the “exploded” billboard noting MISSION IMPOSSIBLE was now in operation.

At the time that Shapiro/Red Zone was in charge they had actually made an investment in Tom Cruise and MGM's production company which I believe produced the Mission Impossible films. It was right around the time they also bought Dick Clark Productions and were trying to leverage Six Flags into a multi-media company.
