I'm surprised they haven't updated on any social media.

Because no one really cares? I don't think SFGAm would bother going all-out on marketing a small addition like this. Honestly, I don't think any park in the chain has really posted updates when they got a super loop. :lol:

Im hoping the colors work well with the area. Do you have a pic of the “train”?

I’m oddly excited for this. We’re still getting additions. Many parks go years without a damn thing so we shouldn’t complain too much. & the name is so frickin great honestly.


I'd rather go multiple years with nothing but general park improvements....Our park lacks that sense of beauty that others tend to pull off really well.

Perfect example, how they ruined Hometown Square for a show that lasted...what, one or two years? Hometown for me is the biggest eyesore in the park. I think Glow in the Park Parade will be my last good memory of Hometown.

I never said all-out. They do update on small things like when the Lobster's sign came in. I'm surprised they haven't updated on anything because it's getting closer and closer to opening day. Also just because you care doesn't mean no one cares :lol:

I'm not surprised in the slightest, there's nothing too exciting at the park changing this year so there's not really anything to update on.

respectfully snipped

THIS. Great America really could use it. Start with that darn broken freestyle machine in Six Below!

Nice to see some progress on the site being made. It looks like they'll be using the old queue from King Chaos also.

The colors of the loop (orange and purple) remind me of another ride in the park :).

THIS! Especially if you have a larger chest! Power dive's restraints were brutal.

They posted on Snapchat, nothing too exciting, but love the colors of the loop. It'd be neat to see that jester skull in front of the ride like Bourbon Street Fireball at Sixflags America has the logo on the ground in front of the entrance.

Edit: Looks like the ride is gonna go up quickly! https://m.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1 ... sights.%7B"10583866355"%3A%7B"page_id"%3A10583866355%2C"role"%3A1%2C"actor_id"%3A100004959909618%2C"psn"%3A"EntGroupMallPostCreationStory"%2C"attached_story"%3A%7B"role"%3A1%2C"page_id"%3A10583866355%2C"post_context"%3A%7B"story_fbid"%3A10155237719166356%2C"publish_time"%3A1522267082%2C"story_name"%3A"EntStatusCreationStory"%2C"object_fbtype"%3A266%7D%2C"actor_id"%3A10583866355%2C"psn"%3A"EntStatusCreationStory"%2C"sl"%3A6%7D%2C"sl"%3A6%2C"targets"%3A%5B%7B"page_id"%3A10583866355%2C"actor_id"%3A100004959909618%2C"role"%3A1%2C"post_id"%3A10155237719166356%2C"share_id"%3A0%7D%5D%7D%7D&__tn__=%2B%3D

Wow! Progress indeed. I like how the colors alternate around the loop instead of it being half-and-half. I'm hoping this could potentially mean an opening earlier than Memorial Day.
