Okay, so I think the rumor (has it been made official yet?) is that Maliboomer is going to eventually leave the Paradise Pier attraction lineup.
I don't really understand why it has to go. I, for one, don't think it's ugly. I think it makes the Paradise Pier skyline look pretty cool. It's not a run-off-the-mill carnival ride, it's a pretty advanced S&S space shot. Sure, they're popular in generic amusement parks, but Maliboomer is themed to the area. Maybe it won't fit in after the Paradise Pier redo, but they could repaint it to keep it looking like it belongs in the area.
I'm just not really sure what the point of removing Maliboomer would be, considering it's in such a cramped location already.
