I'm not saying it isn't being removed. But, can't you at least consider this:
Your a park owner. You have a ride that has mechanical problems that can't be fixed with a simple part swap. There possibly needs to be some reengineering done. You know it won't be open the entire season. So rather than having people question you every 5 minutes about it. You remove it from the map and put up a sign closed for the season.
I'm still not convinced that SV would be in the frame of that picture. I think it would be out of frame to the left. There is no reason to go to the trouble of photoshopping it out.
Does anyone have a photo from the same vantage point that we can use for comparison?
Also, if they were removing it, what motovation would they have for not telling us? It would make more sense to say, "Were taking it out, and this is why..." That's what they did with X-Flight.
