2019 rumors, thoughts, speculation

Talk about anything that has to do with Six Flags Great America and Hurricane Harbor here.

Pictorium’s former site is far too large for a Skywarp, assuming Pictorium’s entrance will hold passage to the new attraction plus a few switchbacks. The queue may interact with the new ride much like X-Flight.

^ Hey you never know they can do the world's largest, tallest, longest, and fastest skywarp. Followed by the world's largest queue for an uneccesary ride.

I hope it is a proper launch coaster. I want a world class launch coaster, but it would be unrealistic. Honestly the T rex sounds good too. I just don't see Six flags putting in the money to make it good

Now that I think of it the control panel needs a lot of electricity to run. Well if so then I think we already know where the control panel for the ride is going to be.

I said this already. The red marked pipes we're currently seeing are from the Pictorium leftovers. Notice that all the red markers are from lines near the midway... These were the electrical hookups from those old racetrack games that were left unused.

If you want a RMC Raptor at the park, this could happen to you...

I honestly don't think we'll get a Raptor here. If we do get a T-Rex though, those trains are apparently using lap bars, so we wouldn't have to worry about the shoulder bruising :)

If they need extra space, maybe they will move Home Town Fun Machine next to Demon in the vacant Sky Trail plot.

I want
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.

I’d rather have a T-Rex. Lots of elements could be crammed into a small site given the nature of the track design. And if the lift hill is steep enough, heights of 150 + ft are theoretically achievable.

Remember though that T-Rex cannot have transitions as fast as raptors due to the 2 per row seats.

Because they can't have as fast additions we would see no injuries like on WW. No injuries means GP won't sue the Park and have the ride shut down for a couple of months. I would prefer a T-Rex over the S&S.
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.

Oh, of course, I’m aware of the difference in track gauge. A benefit of T-Rex track is that it requires fewer support columns than conventional coaster steel track, which translates into quicker transitions from one element to another, and therefore more elements, all things being equal.

Injuries on Wonder Woman?
I haven’t heard anything and googled it and nothing came up.

I think earlier in this thread, there was a post on facebook that showed someone's back beat up from the ride.

So what? People get beat up on all sorts of rides. Obviously this isn’t a widespread thing so it’s something only people who bruise extremely easily would have to be worried about. Overall, I hear Raptors are great additions and would love to see a high capacity single rail ride come to our park.

Why is high capacity and raptor used in the same statement?

I get it, the moving station helps but when you have idiots with loose articles they'll never meet dispatch interval.
