I wish I could have visited there, it looked and sounded amazing!
Can someone explain to me why it was closed?

Quoting Shamrock350 (Reply 1):

Mainly capacity issues, noise issues, economic issues including land use, restriction of height issues as land price at a premium, and slightly political issues as well.
