I can second this. People I’ve spoken to with connections to the ride’s development are still dumbfounded by what happened to DarKastle. I know Drachen Fire will always be remembered, but it deserved its fate. I know The Wolf will always be remembered, but its demise can be reasonably explained. DarKastle was the rare example of an attraction whose murder was both in no way justified or reasonably explainable. I think its removal is bound to be looked back on as a huge black mark in BGW’s history—possibly as the moment Busch Gardens Williamsburg forfeited any concept of itself as a destination theme park.Some folks who worked to create the ride system feel similarly, FWIW.
