Minor Updates, Rumors, and Happenings

Talk about anything that has to do with Six Flags Great America and Hurricane Harbor here.
Postby Guy_With_A_Stick on February 4th, 2017, 8:03 pm
Having just gotten back from there(Even though I live 5 minutes away lol), I certainly think that it's time for some expansion. It really hasn't changed at all since it opened, and I would really like to see some more stuff for the water park. A single atomic bowl isn't going to cut it!

By the way, I said I just got back from there. Which means I'm able to take pictures of things not visible from public streets...

I honestly wouldn't be surprised if Great Wolf added a water coaster before SFGAm.

Btw, I think we should make a new topic for this project, since it will have its own updates and info. And it's definitely not minor.

Will not be surprised when King Chaos closes on September 4th.

I feel dumb for thinking V2 was going to close.

Noticed today that Tot's Livery was removed from the website. I wonder if this was a mistake when they took off Jester and Orbit.

If I had to guess it's probably a mistake, but something to note also is that the ride page says Access Denied

I've never seen a park more proud of their new bathroom and it's components than SFNE :lol:

On a side note, Let's be thankful we're not Great Adventure

On a drone video showing the park from high up the Viper had a white covering on it's tracks. What is it? https://youtu.be/fr-AX2qULPI

I HOPE the park decides to FINALLY re-paint Superman! It's in absolute desperate need of one and I don't know why the park is choosing to wait so long to get it done.

Also, consider the fact that although Superman is pretty badly faded, there is no rust, so other rides that do have rust will likely be addressed first.
