The Skyway was expensive to maintain and had a low hourly capacity. Also the 35-year-old inner mechanisms were getting old and were in need of extensive replacement by the time 1994 rolled around. Instead of salvaging it, the Skyway was scrapped, and the funding went to Indy instead.
Interesting to note that the Skyway's justification for closure is almost identical to that of the Submarine Voyage.

Except Nothing Was Made To replace the Subs Like Indy!
Also, one man jumped out and landed on the only tree on the route and claimed to have fell out and sued....
but honestly, it really sint up to disney standards......and it just isnt practical, not safe enough, people are stupid and want money.....and CMs hated it! You had one second to pull them off the ride, throw the cart to loading and load the person
TO much mual labor and work, everythings automatic now and doesnt depend on people being fast or slow
I heard it was because it wasn't wheelchair accessible and in order to make it wheelchair accessible it would have cost a fortune.
also it was the victim of another one of paul presslers cost cutting ideas, same reason why they closed the subs. Too much money to maintain and it required alot of CM's. Close the ride and save money.
