Primarily, to make room for WLLC/Hurricane Force, though it was always a problematic ride in it's own. I think it was even a trailer model, so I doubt the park was planning on keeping it around for 20+ years.

It's future whereabouts are unknown, but I heard that HUSS is coming to remove the ride

It was portable, like so it can travel as part of a fair.

Yep, I *think* since 2003 or so (according to an old post on here) but I'm not 100% sure exactly how long.

Yeah, it's been going up for a while now. Then they usually end up finally taking it down sometime in March or April.

Couldn't they just bring the cabin down and load up the lights while on the ground? I would think they do the the gorilla the same way.

If you look at the picture the lights aren't on the cabin, they are on the top. Same with Larry the Gorilla they just have him rest on the top of the cabin.
