That is not good news for the Skyway at GADV.

El Toro isn’t going anywhere. It’s the park’s most critically acclaimed ride and it always has a line.

I think the high maintenance leaders are: KIngda Ka Log Flume   Underutilized: Jolly Roger Tango Bizarro (I can see this rotating to another park)   Aged:

From a very hopeful perspective, maybe we’ll get some parts and vehicles.    This is one ride I truly don’t want to see us lose.

The 2021 Six Flags America park map is out and ZoomAzon Falls isn't on it.

That is a shame they are closing those down. The landscaping is nice.

Zoomazon Falls closing took me by surprise. I liked the setting and it seemed to get decent ridership during Hurricane Harbor season; frick it first opened up in 1982! I'm assuming maintenance issues led to it's closure.

I would have expected the ride from Six Flags America that was going to be removed would have been either Shipwreck Falls (it seems these Shoot the Chutes are gradually being removed); Batwing (well maintenance on that is a pain) or Penguin's Blizzard River (maintenance and it's just dull to me. Plus the water there stinks!).

I had also read something that La Ronde will not be building Vipere (formerly Green Lanter: First Flight) in 2021.

When I was at SFA on March 7, I saw so notice that ZF was being the ride/attraction removed. It'll be surreal to see it being deconstructed.

I would say the ride with the biggest risk of being removed at GADV is sadly the Skyride as a similar model was closed at SFOG. It may be possible that an attraction over in HH could also be on the chopping block.

I'm more worried about the Big Wheel. Six Flags has removed several ferris wheels over the years, even when their manufacturer is still in business and making parts...

 

What was the last Ferris Wheel Six Flags Removed? New England's in 2005?

Screamscape has recent flyover footage from SFDK. Harley Quinn's Crazy Train still stands. Maybe its SBNO this year? I have no idea why Six Flags bothered with this addition. Superman right next door is a better ride, with a similar experience.

 

(Been a long time since I've logged in here. Don't know why, because I kept following GAH without pause).

Sfdk's Harley Quinn Crazy Train was a flop, I heard something with weight and balance plays a big part in the rides operation apparently, as well as other maintenance  issues I imagine.

I am surprised (but relieved) the bobsled didn’t get the axe.  

La Vibora in still looks to be popular (then again the ride is a capacity nightmare)

Any time a ride is no longer manufactured (Intamin hasn't made a bobsled in decades) there's a good chance it's on the chopping block. Add to that the limited operations of the rides due to weather and they become obvious candidates for removal. I expect one to be removed and the other park to get the spare parts at some point.
