But yeah ERC is relocating to Orbits spot.



I wonder if it will get a Harley Quinn theme and be called "Harley Quinn's Spinsanity" cause East River Crawler doesn't really work in Hometown Square.


I bet it goes back to The Lobster.

Also, does anyone think we will get the new Justice League features via a software update next year? Barrel Roll, Harley Quinn, new targets, and new final scene.


From reading the press releases, it seems like maybe only Magic Mountain is getting the upgraded version. Their press release mentions a Harley Quinn animatronic and I think we can all agree that's not happening, I don't know if they can or will add her to the video portion and still have the storyline make sense if there's an animatronic that we don't have. It would be nice if they did it, though ,(or from their standpoint, it might make sense to wait a year or two and whip it out in a slow year).

With everything goin on between he said she said & the fights, I didn't want to say I knew anything cause in reality, I truly didn't as anything could have changed. But my friend who was working at SFGAdv, told me he knew three attractions for 2017. & I have the text from July to prove our addition. I'm very pleased he was right. I told him I would hurt him for lying to me if he was jokin around. No pun intended now lol. How the hell do I post a pic here btw... On my comp it's easy but on my phone there's only a submit button.

This will probably look great!! Is the bridge moving over or is it going to be a completely different structure?

^It's a path with a tent-like structure over it. Not gonna judge until I see it for myself.

Oh ok. Yeah, I had to leave my house right when Marcus started talking about the Joker. I'm so excited now!

This appears to be the approximate layout. Looks like there is a blue covered structure over the new path by Roaring Rapids.

Does everyone think that this will be open by opening day next year? It really isn't as complex as Goliath which obviously went quite a bit over the estimated opening date.

You guys gotta admit, we've probably have had the best past few years than any other six flags park! Think of it...
2011-riptide bay
2012-xflight
2013-ignite
2014-goliath
2015-40 seasons
2016-juatice league
2017-joker

If we saw 2018 a flat package, we would have such a great diversity in new attractions

Considering that they specifically say that The Joker will be in Yankee Harbor, I don't think that's happening.

No, because they're very likely not even going to try to get it open by opening say. They didn't even have a few flat kiddie rides open on opening day.

BTR and Joker both opened over Memorial Day weekend so that's when I would expect ours to open which would be May 27.

Doesn't Six Flags intentionally open rides a month or so into opening so people come back?

MAN! This completely changes the park layout! Six Flags must have had a hard time fitting it in properly like that. I do like that it leaves some room for expansion. albeit not much. This also means that you should see it horizontally from the parking lot!

It does kinda kill the flow of the park's 'full circle' layout, but I never go past that area anyway, so I honestly won't care.

I'm looking forward to this now. Hopefully construction starts soon.

Per S&S the ride itself is 259ft long x 28'ft width X 120ft high. then you have to figure in load area for each side expanding the width needed. Then there is the Q -line area with switch backs, etc... Other parks have done a long slender line the length and another 50 ft beyond, with the switch backs before that.
