It looks like people want a coaster with constant ejector.
But really bull has some pretty good air. So does eagle and viper. Do we need a good airtime coaster when we could get a coaster with a different type. Floorless, a decent stand-up, heck, even a 4th dimension, or bobsled

What I want the most is a launch coaster.

^We don't need a bobsled coaster. We had rolling thunder for a few years but that was removed around 20 years ago.

And remember, for 6 seasons, SFGAm had two wild mice just a few hundred feet apart, and La Ronde got an SLC when they already had a B&M Invert. Does it look like Six Flags cares about redundancy :lol:

Yeah, almost all parks have 2 or more wooden coasters in the same park! Shame on Six Flags...

Well Six Flags I guess doesn't really care of variety with their coaster lineups, but they really should. I mean really, two wild mice a couple hundred feet apart at SFGAm, two 4D coasters at SFMM, and putting in an SLC with a B&M invert at La Ronde. Six Flags has made some really poor choices in terms of the variety of their parks.

Each example, both rides draw a queue, so why not? GP probably doesn't even notice

^ And even if they do notice I doubt they really care. I've had gp friends who have noticed that DK and RC were similar rides, but they still wanted to ride both when we went.

It's no worse than at any of the other chains.

I want a launch coaster too but thats not realistic for a few years. Realistically Id say a good flat and a dark ride in the next few years. A skyscreamer is a possibility.

But yes the next coaster we get Id like to see a launch.

I would love to see some new shows and some place to do them like make the Southwest area have a bigger cowboy show. I know most people don't want this but for me I don't ride the coasters and most of the flats don't ride.

I agree the show scheduling has been lacking. I would love an LOL show like Six Flags America has.


For those who don't know, LOL is Six Flags' ripoff/version of Whose Line Is It Anyway

We're getting Chinese acrobats in the Grand Music Hall this year, which I think will be a nice break from the typical song and dance show it's had for a while now. Not seeing anything about Pictorium yet.

Edit: They took the acrobats off the entertainment list so..not sure what's up with that.

The only time the singing show was any good was back in 2006 when it was tribute to the stars and they were real celebrity impersonators, it started tanking in 2009 when it became a ShowStoppin and the people were fighting each other for vocal superiority and the girls can you say hella pitchy and basically screaming? Through my years of seeing the show it has been a shame because some of the people can actually sing, but you would never know it because of the volume level. Putting in this Chinese Acrobats show is like going back to 2005's Circo Magnifico.

This will be great to see. Can't wait, I am guessing it will not open until June.

Boo! I was hoping for that 1920's Chicago Gangster Musical or a Magic Show.

I'm all for a launch coaster too, but maybe not or 2016. I don't care if it's a Premier or Mack Rider. Which would you rather see? I have a feeling SF would go with premier since we already have Mack Rider (Dark Knight).

What's a Mack Rider?

Also:

We had Demon (Arrow) and Shockwave (Arrow)
We had Whizzer (Schwarzkopf Speed Racer) and Tidal Wave (Schwarzkopf Shuttle Loop)
We had American Eagle (Intamin) and Z Force (Intamin)
We had Rolling Thunder (Intamin) and V2 (Intamin)
We had Iron Wolf (B&M) and Batman, Raging Bull, Superman, X-Flight (B&M)
We had Spacely (Vekoma) and Deja Vu (Vekoma)

Parks go with what is reliable and what works. For example; Six Flags/Premier added Vekoma's left and right to their parks in the late 90s and early 2000s but after Deja Vu, They stopped for a reason.

Well to be technical we had two wild mouse coasters at once, three inverts at once, and now we have three woodies.

Any chance we might get this on the 30 acres of future expansion area?

There's also a thought that they could build it above the current parking lot

But that would be such an eyesore. A park over a parking lot? Unless if we convert it into an underground parking garage, then sure.

How would some solar panels next to the park be an eyesore?

Oh. I didn't see the image. I'm for the solar pannels! Isn't there also that thing where when you step on a tile/pad, it generates energy? I'm on mobile, so a link or picture could be helpful!
