Let the speculation begin! I think they should focus on maintaining the rides instead of building new stuff. American Eagle is in need of a paint job and Superman needs one too. I just hope its not another water park expansion.
I actually kinda hope that Viper gets topper track but i think they already would've announced it since they announce the Rattler at Six Flags Fiesta Texas will close on August 5th so that it can get topper track.
Some of the comments from the GP on facebook are so ridiculous they're laughable. Here are some of my favorites:
"It's a wing rider? Please say its a wing rider" "a removal of american eagle" "A roller coaster like raging bull not xflight" "Apolicpus a new stand up rollercoster" "yes there burning down the american eagle its bout time" (Burning down? LOLWUT) "hmmm...maybe an Intamin Wing Rider like this one that launches 0-83mph in 4 seconds?" "Something like the top fuel dragster at ceader point I hope" (Top fuel. Lol) "A mega coaster maybe so we dont have to go to cedar point to ride real coasters.... A king da ka would be nice!!" (Cause thats totally possible with a heigh limit just about 300)
Six flags has some really dumb GP
As for what I think it'll be, heres what I think: - A skycreamer in Yukon Territory (Creds to galvan :3) - El loco (maybe just maybe) - Giant kid area in back of park - Painting pictorium
Xlight total rides: 50 times and in every row except front row left wing.
Im glad SF is announcing it early instead of waiting till next year it could be a ride who knows Im glad were getting something. Dont wanna start anything but anybody noticed the blue looking tubes behind the old B96 station when you ride the train it look like coaster parts.
Not to mention i the people who said they wanted the park to bring Shockwave back (from the dead) or Iron Wolf (Yeah they just stuck it over at Maryland for a year than decided to bring it back here and market it as a brand new ride)
But yeah anyway SkyScreamer even though i'd love a Screamin' Swing.

I didn't think so, so that makes me wonder if it really is a Sky Screamer. There would be no point to it if it was only 120ft high. If they did already, I would be surprised that no one here has mentioned that yet.
It probably is going to be some kiddie thing. A Six Flags employee was surveying people in Triple Play, and Whizzer last time I was there, and even maybe a month or 2 ago, the same person was surveying people in the Whizzer line. And no, I don't know what questions she asked. What a waste of money to play around with the kiddie areas once again.
Ilovigo-- Me = Dopey; just trying to get another kiss from Snow White. |Remember you don't know what you got until it's gone. That ride you liked might be in the dump next year. Or if you lose a leg, you can't ride much of anything. Cherish what you have now.
I'm all for more family/kids stuff. It would be nice to have a more classic "family" park back. I like going with my family, but with all the acting-out "older kids" it's a bit annoying. So much for "my family comes here."
They really changed their demographic over the years and seem to be stuck now. So it's logical that they would try to market to family types.
When I mentioned painting rides I ment that should be their top priority. I know that would not be the announcement. I'm just tired of the park not painting some of the rides like they should. My girlfriend who was visiting even saw how bad Eagle needed paint. Whenever I go I usually make a complaint about Eagle not running both sides if its not or tell them what I think needs to be painted.I always also give compliments.
Granted by the crate, it looks like they might be going for an Acme type look, so I think the kiddy rides will be merged into a Looney Toons area. I think that we will also get one more thing though, and that will probably be a flat. My guess is a Sky Screamer. Doing this, they will keep the kids happy as well as not leave out the older crowd.
^Leave out the older crowd? They just appeased the older crowd this year....are we that over it already and looking for the next thing? It wouldn't surprise me if they merged the kiddie rides displaced from the go-karts and dipper with the ones in Camp and use part of the IW footprint.
