At the very end of a blog post detailing upcoming changes to Dorney the park quietly dropped this bomb stating that the Vekoma Invertigo model shuttle coaster "Stinger" would be closed and removed for the 2018 season.
Despite it being an off the shelf Vekoma shuttle coaster, it is unfortunate that the park was unable to announce it's closer before the end of the season to give any potential fans of the ride a chance to ride it one last time. I believe this makes Kings Island's Invertigo the last one operating in the United States.Dorney Park said:Finally, from time to time we have to move things around or even remove them completely in order to look to the future. Stinger, which came to us from our sister park California's Great America in 2012, will be removed to make room for future planning opportunities. We don’t have details to share right now, but we are working on future planning and development of the park.
