I know something you don’t…

Any else have FOMO for Rollercoasters? Like your favorite ride or bucket list ride could be removed anytime? For me it’s Nessie, and a lot of wooden coasters
Even if they were to remove Nessie, the ride has enough of a following that they wouldn’t be able to. The most I see them doing is doing what Efteling did to Python, at least in the high stress areas.Doubt that'd happen without a major accident (TTD or worse) or a cost prohibitive repair needed (Volcano).
I think Nessie will stick around until the metal is too fatigued and cannot be replaced, which is going to happen eventually but for now seems unlikely it'll be anytime soon.
Woodies are relatively cheap, and offer the ability for a conversion if they get out of hand - cheap 'new' ride (TT).
I think we will see Backlot Stunt Coaster, FoF, and Anaconda go first at KD before we'd see the rest of the lineup replaced; I don't see BGW removing anything for the foreseeable future unless they're really in the SF mindset to have a rides rotation program.
