At least SF is original enough to have different color schemes.

It'd be cool if they kept RC facade in front of the Joker and I could say: Joker's Jokes

I like ours. We have one side green the other side purple, and that's for both track and supports! Were gonna have a new color in our park!

I wouldn't be 100% sure they're keeping these color schemes - remember that Great Adventure got a whole new theme last minute, it wouldn't be shocking if they decided one of the schemes tested better or something and used it on all of them...

I don't thing sfgam would retheme, I think that its right by batman, so the joker theme is perfect. It also won't change at SFOT because it is in the Gotham area. Maybe sfne, but idk where that one is going

Double post but SFNE didn't post any renders, and they already have a joker themed attraction... So maybe a total mayhem theme for em

Sorry, I should clarify, I don't think they'll change the theme, I just wouldn't bet my life that they'll all be painted exactly like they are in the renderings.

He's means the colors on the ride. Not the theme.

Double post.
SFNE is getting purple supports. That's what it shows on the website.

Oh, my bad. But Ill still keep that thought up for sfne...just because they don't have renders, odds are I'm gonna be super incorrect, but whatever

If this happened they'd have to rename King Chaos to Harley Quinn's Spinsanity and Big Easy Balloons to Wonder Woman, Lasso of Truth ;-)

I don't think so if anything Gotham harbor would come back but I find that doubt full

Could someone tell me why you would rather have 4-D Free Spin than a Launch Coaster in the near future?

A launch like Maverick or Hulk? I've not ridden the new Hulk but the one time I rode the old one it was all the wrong forces and a bit of head-banging. Total opposite of Kraken and considerably more violent than Kumba. I've only been on Maverick 3 or 4 times on two different trips and liked it considerably less the second trip. It can be pretty violent and I wish it had more inversions and a little more length. If we could get an awesome launch coaster that had the creativity and smoothness of Kraken with some Maverick type elements that would be the ultimate coaster for me.

4d is something I'm a bit iffy about. All that spinning. Looks like a real quality ride. I'm curious if they're taking out Whirleygig too.

^I wouldn't be surprised. The area does look like it could have one, especially with Joker.

I just now realized this topic was made. That just shows everyone how observant I am. Anywho, my opinion on Joker....overall I think it's fine, I just wish they did the larger model with a different name. But what do you expect from Six Flags am I right?

Yep. At least it's going to draw people from the Midwest that can't travel to Texas or New Jersey.

Some thoughts I've been sitting on all day -

I am very excited for this coaster. As many of us have said, it is unlike any thing we have & will make us even more well rounded. Ever since talk came out about us possibly getting a 4D, I thought how crazy would that look to people here & would it do well?

I am happy to have a new coaster in our line up, there is no way in hell I would ever complain about that (hell I've wanted a new kiddie coaster the last couple years for the wee ones) but it is sad to me that no park in the chain has an identity. Each park is getting something another is. I hate that. This being "cause it's Six Flags" isn't an excuse to me. It's different this time. There is no RMC to shock anyone this time around, no new concept, & a lot of been there done that's. It feels like a factory assembly line of "everything must go" cause they made too many of each item if you get what I'm sayin.
