If it's a coaster, my bets are on a Wonder Woman clone. To me, sadly, this is too suspiciously close to the waterpark for it to be anything other than a damn waterpark expansion.

You never know though. We have been surprised before. I would rather them extend the waterpark into the parking lot than into the pictorium spot.

Do you think they would add a GCI in that spot?

SFGAM used to have the most wooden coaster track out of any park in the world until Kings Island built Mystic Timbers.
1. Kings Island: 18,804 with 5 Woodies
2. Six Flags Great America: 16,558 with 5 Woodies
3. Hersheypark: 13,329 with 4 Woodies
I think the Pictorium spot will be used for a RMC Raptor. Maybe down the road they could add a GCI like Gold Striker in the Buccaneer Battle and Go-Karts spots. Hopefully it would be better than Gold Striker though. It's funny we build a wooden coaster where CGA built a Raptor and we build a Raptor where CGA built a woodie.
1.) Steel Vengeance 2.) Maverick 3.) Goliath (SFGAM) 4.) Top Thrill Dragster 5.) Mystic Timbers
Ragin Cajun and Iron Wolf went from Six Flags Great America to Six Flags America. I guess they weren't GREAT anymore.

Like with X-Flight.

I would imagine that the Railroad is going to be closed for the rest of the season pretty soon once construction gets underway.
I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my park get a RMC Trex, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will double post on this forum.

After they removed Deja Vu I was hoping for a GCI Like American Thunder... I always felt that was a missed opportunity. Speaking of Deja Vu.... I wonder if they will pull a 2001 again... Adding a Coaster in the Pictorium plot and throwing a Skywarp in trail blazers old spot. 2 New coasters for 2019! lol

^ Hmm it seems like a great idea and it still wouldn't effect our ride budget for some of us who care.

Apparently, some RMC employees were at Eagle the other day looking at footers

^Eagle RMC has been floating around for years. Park management even admitted they have explored ideas for it. Personally, I'd rather see Viper get it the RMC treatment.

I'm telling you right now... something needs to be done about the Eagle. I rode it the other day and I didn't remember it being that rough. It is not even enjoyable to me anymore. The airtime is good, but everthing else just ruins the experience. Before the bumping and shakinf was manageable.... but now I can't get off without my neck or head hurting. I actually like the Viper a lot more than the Eagle now. I'd actually put it at third or fourth best in the park. The Batman actually surprised me. It is one of the best rides in the park if you sit at the back. If RMC does convert the Eagle though, Sixflags better put in the money to make the job done right. Better extend that drop by 90 ft.

I personally have no issues with Eagle, although some regular retracking work would still improve the ride greatly.

According to Screamscape, possible pre-forms for coaster footers have been spotted in the employee parking lot. Can anyone confirm?

I can confirm there are pre-formed RMC footers in the employee lot . . . . that have been there since 2014. They're left over from Goliath :lol:

Just to mention this (I know he said that's Goliath's footers), water slides also have footers. So, let's say they put footers up, it doesn't mean (dry) roller coaster necessarily. Just saying.

I can semi confirm that the next addition will not be at the water park. I'm pretty sure this is confirmed, but I don't want to take any chances. That is what I have found out.

Anyone think we could get Kanonen next year? I know it's a long shot considering how unusual it would be for us to get a 13 year old relocated coaster, but I've been hearing some things that make me think there's a possibility. Afterall, it was apparently purchased by a park in the Midwest and seems to be a perfect fit for the Pictorium site. Thoughts?

Seems unlikely. I can't even remember the last time Six Flags purchased any used ride. Let alone a Roller Coaster.

What about Chang? Wouldn't that count as a used ride?

Also Screamscape has another picture with markers in place. Although I can't exactly tell if they're red or pink markets.

^He said "purchased". Six Flags does take used rides out of their own parks (or a park they DID own), but he's talking about Six Flags buying a Cedar Point ride for instance, and than putting it in a Six Flags park.

Six Flags felt Chang was their ride, and took it out of "their" park. If you also remember, they took a wild mouse coaster out of that park too. T2, they thought was complete garbage, and left it. lol

Six Flags told the Kentucky fair board that they were taking Chang out, and going to put in a waterpark thing in it's place. What Six Flags did though is took that and the wild mouse coaster out of there, and than announced they are closing. The Kentucky fair board was mad at them. They snuck it out of the park fast. lol

It ties back to Great America though because we got the waterpark expansion that was supposed to go Kentucky Kingdom, and than Chang (instead of coming by us) went to Great Adventure.

Yeah I figured that. Just took a wild guess with that one. Well what about Little Dipper then? The park did purchase it after all.
