You were already at the right place for that information. If you check the facts page for each coaster on RCDB it will tell you if and where it was relocated. The upper one was relocated to Six Flags America and named Python where it ran through 1998 and is now in storage. The lower one was relocated to Frontier City and renamed Diamond Back and is still operating today.

They were removed after the 1992 season, the first year I ever went to Six Flags Great Adventure, so I did manage to ride them. There was also a fatal accident on the ride in 1987 in which a girl fell to her death. More info on it can be found on Wikipedia's page, just google Lightning Loops.

I believe that Python was put in "storage" at Old Indiana and then was scrapped when SF sold that property.

Have Fun

Sadly the word 'Python' brought me back to the day when Arrow 'Python' at BGA was taken out of the park forever. :cry:
