As long as it's not as terrible as Green Lantern at SFMM. Arashi was a surprise.

Green Lantern is an entirely different ride experience. There is nothing they could do to make the ride as bad as green lantern haha.

I'd like to add a few rides to my list...

Hometown Fun Machine: It feels really unreliable now a days and it keep getting my right arm bruised on this.

MGH; This ride now does nothing for me... I really don't know why I was so pumped for this and really liked it at the beginning.

Dare Devil's Dive: This is some nice land for a Giant Discovery.
How come Lightning Rod is never open when I go.

Top 10: 1. Steel Vengeance 2. El Toro 3. Maverick 4. Mako 5. Boulder Dash 6. Nitro 7. Goliath SFGAM 8. Iron Rattler 9. Medusa Steel Coaster 10. Superman The Ride

Dare Devil Dive is also a good spot for the overflow queue for RMC American Eagle. :wink:
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.

Our management needs to get a clue already. Junk, junk, the ride (Buccaneer Battle)


Not to defend Buccaneer Battle or anything, but reading the articles about the Legoland ride, it sounds a lot more like it's just being rethemed, not being removed...

^Yeah, your right. I've heard about a flying theater, and thought that was the only ride in that area that was going to be new, and I thought they were taking out that Buccaneer Battle ride.

Buccaneer Battle - totally out of theme.
The Joker - its hideous and made for a weird pathway
The go karts - totally hideous in an area that is supposed to have been wilderness themed
Batman - ugly ride, out of theme. Or at least retheme it.

Batman is an icon, I doubt it will ever be removed or rethemed. Buccaneer Battle is at the top of my list though along with Kidzopolis. Both take up valuable real estate, and really offer nothing for the park. Some of those Kidzopolis rides could be moved to Camp Cartoon if they decide to bulldoze the wilderness theater and expand it.

Ed Hart put it the best in Coaster Studios new documentary.... What drives theme park attendance? "It's the rides stupid" lol
