Six Flags Over Texas theme park imploded the 128-foot 25-year-old "Wildcatter" ride (which debuted as the “Texas Cliffhanger,” which is how most folks tend to remember it) Tuesday afternoon to make room for a new “Tony Hawk’s Big Spin”. It was imploded at 2 p.m. by the Dallas Demolition Company. Park officials said the new Tony Hawk ride will debut on opening day of the 2008 season.
