I think eventually we will see something in RCs spot and Demon's spot.
Edit: and Pictorium's spot and BBs spot.

*The top item on my wish list is a dark ride.

*A new car ride. I would like to see it heavily themed.

*Bring back a stunt show to SWA.

*Keep the igNight stage but do a whole new show on it. (Not yet I expect a similar show this year)
Edit: Done. Keeping the stage minus the runway. Doing a finale show and parade.

*Sad to see the old model of the park go. Maybe we could see a new model of the current park including Goliath?

*Put out books, DVDs, ect.

*A new innovative flat. The park has been great at doing the next newest biggest best most innovative things with coasters, lets move flat ride history forward with a great high thrill flat ride that is before it's time.

*Bring back a motion sim ride.

*The top item on my wish list is a good dark ride. Some of the best rides are dark rides and I feel this is what the park is missing the most. Theme it heavily DC, Looney Tunes, etc.

*As far as coasters go I think we need a really good launcher; possibly world's fastest and highest rate of acceleration?

*Coasters could also include an X2 type ride that is randomized like Tower of Terror so each time you ride it the flip sequences of the seats would be different. You could also do this as an upgrade to X-Flight.

*A new car ride. I would like to see it heavily themed. A cruise through Great AMERICA. Possibly seeing American landmarks. Possibly patriotic things like the White House and whatnot. Possibly a cruise down Route 66. But definitely a road trip type heavily themed drive and definitely American themed.

*Bring back a stunt show to SWA. Preferably a Batman and Superman show timed with the release of the new movie.

*Keep the igNight stage but do a whole new show on it. (Not yet I expect a similar show this year)

*Sad to see the old model of the park go. Maybe we could see a new model of the current park including Goliath?

*Put out books, DVDs (please include that , shows, etc on the history of the park.

*A new innovative flat. The park has been great at doing the next newest biggest best most innovative things with coasters, lets move flat ride history forward with a great high thrill flat ride that is before it's time.

*Bring back a motion sim ride. Make it a time machine that lets you ride former sfgam rides...then it lets you ride possible future rides. Not realistic, just give a dare to dream ending.


I agree with a lot of what you're throwing out there, but it may have to be debated whether or not some of this would require removal of the picnic grove

Justin suggested the dark ride could be Wile E. Coyote themed.
I like that idea. I could also see a Scooby Doo ride like other 6 Flags parks have done.

Is removing the Picnic Grove a smart idea? Where else could you host large corporation parties and other large groups? Relocating it might be hard as there is no other spot in the park for a picnic grove.

That's an idea I can get behind. It would free up some space for a new attraction or coaster.
Is Wilderness Theater even used that much anymore?

They should get rid of it and use some of the space left by it and some of the employee parking lot for a new picnic grove area. The old picnic grove area can be cleared away for a new ride. Their special events can be moved to another theater.

A new themed area(s) or Picnic Grove is possible if the park completely redesigns the parking lot to accommodate. If there were to be an area as large as the guest drop off area and bus parking area combined, we'd still have more than enough parking left in the park. Remember, the overflow parking lot is larger than the front parking lot from the looks of it.

Giving a major overhaul to Aunt Martha's, Mooseburger, and Angelo's so that they have high quality food for a nice sit down experience.

How about this? New flat near Trailblazer former site, as well as converting the Kidzopolis restaurant into an area for a new ride for the kids. In 2015, I'd also like to see something added to Hurricane Harbor

Get rid of BB.
Soon, with in a year or two, please!

Replacing a high thrill ride with a low thrill ride is not a smart move.

Replacing a Well Loved High Capacity Flat Ride with a Low Capacity Terrible Reliability attraction with a ride that nobody rides that they never advertised is not a smart move.

Here is my wish list:

1. Remove the Go Karts. They are a big eyesore and have no vegetation around them. Plus, the whole area is too loud and it smells like gasoline. They should add a Screaming Swing there possibly.

2. Alter the train tracks, move Hurricane Harbors entrance and build maybe a Gerstlauer Eurofighter in the area to the right of the Whizzer.It would be a great coaster as a ride like this would fit good with the park's lineup. Hopefully, it will be taller than most of the park's thrill coasters, 100 - 120 feet and feature some new loops for the park like a cobra roll.

3. Renovate Hurricane Harbor. Even though I think Hurricane Harbor is quite developed for Six Flags waterparks like new technology on slides in the last few years, it could be better. I would like to see a Constrictor slide from Whitewater West added to the Riptide Bay structure, and a Hydro Magnetic Rocket water coaster from Proslide.

4. Refurbish Demon. Every time I go on Demon, I get a bad headache, and the ride is very short. Sometimes, I try standing up the best I can to try to get my head above the head restraints. I think B & M should maybe start retracking arrow coasters with cars that resemble the old Demon ones. Also, they can add some new loops and make the ride way funner.

5. Add an Intamin of B & M giga coaster. This type of coaster would go good with a station between The Dark Knight, and Roaring Rapids. It could go up it's lift hill alongside the side of the lake by the parking lot and do a turnaround over the road to the park.

6. Take out Buccaneer Battle's extended wait area and add a new thrilling flat ride.

I don't know if I would add this to my "wish list" just yet until one is actually built and reports come back on the quality of the ride, and I'm sure you all know by now, but for those that might not know, there's this 525+ ft. coaster being built in Florida called a "PolerCoaster" with a small footprint (since it's a mainly vertical structure) that would probably be good for our limited real estate at SFGam. I know we can't have anything built higher than STT, but I hesitantly & tentatively say it's something to possibly consider. If nothing else, I think it would look cool in the skyline.

What is there to consider? Gurnee has the stt limit set. We will never ever have a 500 ft tall coaster.

Leave my Go Karts ALONE! Go Karts are one of the best attractions there are and SFGAm has a really fun track.

4. REPLACEDemon

No way could you fit a giga in that spot. We don't have the space for a giga.
6. Take out Buccaneer Battle PERIOD replace it with something better.

I didn't say to build a 500 ft tall coaster. Of course I know we couldn't do that. The company says the coaster can be built between 200 ft. to 1000 ft.

I seriously doubt the whole "PolarCoaster" thing would even be considered. The park already has two towers. (GD and STT) I don't think it would go well with guests.

Ok I am going to come out and say it.... I don't know all of the intricacies of the park like some of you so I am going to ask what is serving unit 4/5 does it have something to with the food? I also agre with Ace about revamping the restaurants but don't add tv's like the BBQ that was one of the things I realy liked you could get away from all of the BS TV out there now.

This isn't possible with the current Arrow tech (and B&M doesn't even do 4D yet). X2's seats are rotated by a mechanical linkage attached to a third/fourth rail called an "x rail". As the x rail moves up or down (relative to the regular rails), a rack and pinion system is pushed/pulled which in turn rotates the seats. This is not a re-programmable system. They could have different sequences on the left/right wing. Also, they now have "free spinning" 4D coasters that are a bit like what you imagine.
