IF that we're to happen, I actually would be happy. Is also be sad cause I really love V2. I love the name, the logo, the placement, the ride itself etc. but another launch shuttle coaster with an added effect would fill the void greatly. With a power splash, we still get the intimidating vertical tower rising over the park & really use all that water over there without getting rid of it/filling it in blah blah.

Eh... I hope these rumors are nothing but that, especially if it's a Mack water coaster that would be taking V2's place. If there is any truth to the removal rumor, the earlier comment about Six Flags already having inked a deal with a manufacturer for something that could fit the spot made me think Premier, which (to me at least) would be a more preferable outcome.

Joker would have been a fit for that spot, so on the bright side, at least another coaster wasn't removed in order to make room for that.

Well considering that Clipper's station is where the splashdown for the Mack is, I doubt it'd survive.

Alright - I got a little carried away with the "Pulsar" addition BUT I still believe it would be a fun addition here. However when I first saw SF Dubai concept art with one in there, I really envisioned that ride being added in or near HH. Ive talked about a water coaster that guests could enjoy in both parks before. It could technically be in either park but guests could enter the line or merge in from either one. Think Pilgrims Plunge. I feel like the perfect spot would be along the water park in the parking lot so yes wed lose spaces. If someone could photoshop that, Id love to see it ;)

anyways, Yes if precious V2 were to be removed you better make sure one hell of an addition is replacing it. Especially if you are plannin on removing a total of 2-3 attractions.
I dream of the 400ft "Great American SkyScreamer". x

I honestly do not understand the obsession with water attractions as of late. SFGAm would he better off expanding Hurricane Harbor.

What if you were to flip it 180. Have the station near Yankee Clipper and the launch like V2

I would assume the patio will connect to the pathway leading to the current Picnic Grove entrance. Similar to how the path next to logger's queue runs all the way to V2's alternate entrance by Go Karts.

^ I think it's possible since it's still on the map, but the building would for sure need to be expanded. I'd place my bets somewhere else

On another note, I know there was no mention of this at NCC or anything, but could the antique photos place possibly become a gift shop for Joker? I mean, how profitable really is the place?

I'm seriously considering going up to South Road Park to take construction pics lol. Actually, I heard someone did it for TDK so it shouldn't be a problem.

Phase 2 was more outdoor slides, Sun deck area, enclosing the U shape and putting a roof over that. Under the roof was supposed to be an adult swim up bar, tropical area/garden. Will have to see if I still have the pictures to see what else they had planned.
