I hope that they keep the minimum height at 36Ē on the new version. Our son has been riding it since he was 2. Itís also the only 36Ē height coaster/bigger ride that is reliably open in cooler/wet weather.
However, Iím guessing that it will go up to at least 40Ē if itís more of a true indoor coaster.

I don't think SDC would change that much if they completely redo the ride from the ground up. I think they know that it's so beloved by the GP and that they wouldn't remove the Baldknobbers from the ride.

In this PC driven world, thereís not a chance they return. People already refer to them as Klan members.  Iím honestly surprised they are still present in the current ride.

When did they shorten it? What changed?

Believe it was shortened in 1982.   The first dip (collapsing bridge) goes around to the left, and heads toward the train today.   Well before they changed it at the bottom of the first dip you would head to the right and thru a tunnel.   You would then read a sign that said "Danger track out ahead" and the track looked like it was mangled and going out over the cliff to the left.  As you came up upon the mangled track it would jerk a little toward it like you were going to follow the track over the cliff.   Then it would jerk back to the right at the last second (sparing your life) and continue down where it would hook up to the track just before the train and second dip today.

Dont overlook the good chance that with the all New Water Ride/attraction....  The American Plunge will probably be in line very soon for replacement...

Pretty confident that the order (for now) will be FITH next followed by FM.

More and more of the things that made it a special place are being torn out and replaced and soon it will be just another theme park

I am for a total tear out and rebuild. If proper preventive maintenance had been practiced it would have been possible to salvage the building but the PTB started the process when they shortened the ride years ago. My hope is that they create a awesome dark ride experience in line with Seven Dwarfs at MK. With the new technology a amazing ride experience could be created. I could care less if it has any drops. Just tell a good story. Hopefully the local history and Baldknobber theme is kept.
