Is it bad that I can't tell if this is a joke or not?Can confirm Pompeii is a goner. Park May have done this themselves to save closing costs. It didn’t show up on any JCC fire scanners. Very well could’ve been controlled. We were all wondering why deadline wasn’t coming back. Maybe because the park had this planned?

We can confirm there was small fire Saturday, July 21, on the roof of the Escape from Pompeii water ride in Italy village. The ride was not operating and no guests or ambassadors were in the area at that time. The James City County Fire Department responded immediately and the fire was quickly extinguished without incident. The safety of our guests and ambassadors remains our top priority. The attraction will be closed Sunday, July 22. There's no timetable on when it will reopen.
If KD's Volcano is a goner too, then BGW should go with a spiritual successor to both rides. "Pompeii: Eruption" (edit: Vesuvius was the volcano itself?), a Maverick killer or S&S pneumatic launch. KD should then respond by bringing back the Haunted River in the Volcano structure.I want it to be demolished and replaced with a compact coaster. Bermuda Blitz, Mack, intamin, etc. Wishful thinking, but that would be amazing.
I don't understand why people want it gone so badly. Sure it isn't the greatest ride, but not every ride in the park needs to be a cool coaster. I think a cool themed shoot-the-chute ride is needed in a place like bgw since it is a high capacity family attraction that you really don't get anywhere outside of Disney or Universal. Parks rarely will heavily theme these attractions, and it is a ride that pays tribute to a big historical event.I find all of the Pompeii hate in this thread concerning. You all do realize that it's our last ride-through dark ride, easily one of the best-themed rides in the park, and one of BGW's most iconic attractions, right?
