<~~~Also from Sandusky. CP was having more and more problems with the SS....the interior glass (plexiglass), the seating, the AC as mentioned, plus the track the spiral rode on was in need of major repair or replacement. Sometimes the cabin would not rotate, sometimes it would rotate shakily. CP would have to pump a lot of money into it just to keep it operating.
With the plans for the new coaster, they just planned accordingly.
