Who doesn't have fond memories of visiting Santa's Village in New Hampshire as a kid? And then bringing your own kids! If you've ridden Rudy's Rapid Transit coaster and want one more spin, better get up there this year because it's been announced that the 40 plus year-old coaster is being retired.
But decades later, replacing parts hasn’t been easy.
“It is an old coaster and repairing and replacing parts is getting harder and harder to do,” Santa’s Village wrote. “As we saw when the original Great Humbug Adventure was retired for a beautiful modern dark ride, a ride retirement can give us a chance to improve.”
