Timbers will make up for it a bit but knowing that Volcano is indefinitely closed devalues the season long Fast Lane a lot since that is one coaster in the park that is always guaranteed to get a pretty big line on a busy day.
Also their biggest gun in Fast Lane Plus sales. The park is eating it right now by not having Volcano open, not like they can do anything about it though.

Exactly! On two of my visits last year, I used the Fast Lane Plus on Volcano for most of the day and then again in the evening on Dominator on my way out as I was leaving the park. Everything else those days were either walk-ons or a maximum two train wait.

I'm not strong on my KD knowledge, but I'm quite sure that my uncle said the volcano had had other rides in it before "volcano; the blast coaster". Maybe they are changing it again?

If you look in the Defunct Attractions section of our KD board, you will find threads for Haunted River, Time Shaft, and Land of the Dooz / Smurf Mountain. Those rides we're in the mountain, before Volcano was built.

I'd add that I doubt KD is shutting down -- for an extended period of time -- one of their most famous and popular attractions for any reason other than a serious maintenance issue.

Are there any news/updates on the coaster? Would like to know what the problem is and if it might reopen during this season. I hope the closure does not take as long as Xcelerator (Intamin) at Knotts, which was down from last July until February 2018.....

Not sure how true this rumor is, but I’m seeing reports from various guests that Volcano is down for the season. Guest Services is reportedly telling guests that the ride is down for the season. Some are speculating that structural issues with the supports and/or the actual volcano is the main reason for the prolonged downtime, which makes sense because of the holes seen in parts of it.
