It seems the Intamin Half Pipe At Särkänniemi in Finland is on its way out. Having been at the park since 2003 it seems the ride has reached the end of its life at the park with the article below mentioning rising maintenance costs, declining ridership and the loudness of the ride combined with its proximity to residential areas being factors in the decision.
Not huge news for any enthusiast really but news none the less.
The article suggests the ride will be placed in storage while a buyer is sought.
