    Looking at Oblivion from an aerial view, there’s quite a lot of room for a new coaster especially if they moved enterprise and the arcade/former shop.

    I’d miss Oblivion if it were to go first but I wouldn’t be crying into my cornflakes to be honest.

    I'm sure they haven't. Besides the obvious limitations regarding the laws of physics, the amount of money required to pull something like that off would be insane.

    the removal of any of the sw rides would leave a gap In the lineup. They are all unique
    I would say the least missed would be smiler if another thrill coaster with inversions was built

    If they got rid of enterprise I'm sure an inversion would be possible like an Imellman to a helix to brake run to add a bit of variety, but it would be expensive and a bit of a silly decision.

    it wouldn’t work anyway - the laws of physics would make sure of that

    Re modifying Oblivion- the new dive coaster track and trains are very different from Oblivion with the new track and trains having a much smaller width. If you wanted a Oblivion 2.0 you would need to replace the entire ride

    B&M still offer their tradition 8 seats across Dive Coasters, as seen with Yukon Striker which opened last year.

    At least oblivions queue is wide enough in most parts to split into 2 for forwards and backwards riding.

    Didn't really work for VR and non-VR on Galactica as there isn't room for 2 queues.

    This is coaster dork logic at its most incredulous.

    So what? They have designs, engineering models and algorithms to produce that track and access to a steel shop that can produce anything that they want.

    (won't happen though)
