It really comes down to how much money a park is willing to put into a coaster to keep it running. You don't want the track to age to a point where the coaster becomes unsafe to operate, so the park has to decide what they will do with it. Do they put their money into a new attraction or do they put their money into refurbishing an old attraction to keep it running. If they decide that trying to keep an old coaster running isn't worth it, then you get the announcement that it has reached end-of-life and is time to go away.
