The amusement section was closed in 2012, leaving the water rides open.[2]

Work on re-tracking Rampage began in 2014.[3] The ride opened for a preview event for members of American Coaster Enthusiasts in October 2014 and was reopened to the public the following year.[4]

Alabama Adventure announced that Rampage would be closed during the 2024 season to begin work on re-tracking the ride.[5]
