New Ride(s) for 2017

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

It's that time of year again! Now that Justice League has opened, it's time to argue over what we think will be added in 2017. I believe that we will see Zamperla Discover (ala Riddler's Revenge).

So good bye Revolution :-(

It's been 3 years. Let's tear out the flumes and relocate the picnic area to the front of the park and put in a almost completely over the water 8 looper floorless coaster with splashdown because this boy dares to dream big

Other lame thoughts could be a Fireball in Mardi Gras using Ragin Cajun's queue

I said this in the first new for ride for 2017 thread so I'll say it again here. Larson SuperLoop or S&S 4D.

Yeah, I can see a 4D also in the spot for RC too. Mardis Gras needs to be built up a bit. And a 4D make take some of the line off of V2.

S&S Free Spin in Ragin' Cajun's spot?
Larson Superloop in Skytrail's/Ragin' Cajun's spot
Demon makeover similar to Blue Hawk at SFOG (PLZ)
Maybe we'll get that rumored Zamperla Giant Air Race

Just some ideas...

Larson Super Loop in RC’s former spot called Bourbon Street Fireball. Larson Flying Scooters called Windy City Flyers in the old ropes course spot.

Honestly, a flat ride package is what will fit in best, and what is most reasonable. There are quite a few flats I think we could be getting- Larson Super Loop in RC's spot, Flying Scooters in the old ropes course, and a Giant Discovery to replace Revolution(I cannot remember the last time it had more than a 10 minute wait). We might also do well with a Sky Screamer.

5 Guesses:

- Camp Cartoon makeover into Bugs Bunny Boomtown like SFOG removing the Wilderness Theater
- Demon getting soft padded restraints and maybe/probably a rename/paint job (Demon- Repossessed?)
- Proslide Hydro Magnetic Waterslide. Something like Wildebeest at Holiday World (Tsunami Surge?)
- Funtime Sky Screamer in the former Sky Trail (Surprised SFAm hasn't gotten that yet)
- Zamperla Discovery replacing Revolution with Revolution going to SFAm (Harley Quinn themed?)


Little Things I want:
- Smoothies, Fried Pickles, Cinnamon Rolls, Buffalo Wings, Chicken & Waffle Sandwich, and Cheesecake Egg Rolls Added on the Dining Plan!***
- Not Chinese Acrobats in the Grand Music Hall
- A Custom Designed Coke Freestyle Flavor named after a Coaster (Like Flavaravn, Rougacool, Mako Blast, Etc.)
- A 3rd Coke Freestyle in County Fair
- A New Film in the Pictorium (SpongeBob?)


*** All are current menu items at other Six Flags parks
Smoothies (SFStL)
Fried Pickles (SFGAdv)
Buffalo Wings (SFOG)
Chicken & Waffle Sandwich (SFStL)
Cheesecake Egg Roll (SFAm)
Cinnamon Rolls (SFDK)

I think the Demon is the next ride to go but they will build something in Mardi Gras empty spot first.

Maybe something like this...

The Operational Manager of the park (Dameon?) has stated Demon is his favorite ride and won't be leaving anytime soon.

Also, the ride you linked is the same one that was mentioned in the post above your's (4D Freefly by S&S).

For me, it's Buccaneer Battle. Even on hot days, no one is ever on that thing. Also, take out some of that queue, and add a new cred. SFGAm is to Six Flags as Canada's Wonderland is to Cedar Fair. Wonderland is known for having experimental rides. Same as SFGAm. I'm thinking another entry level thrill ride. How about a Junior El Loco from S&S?

I know this isn't the right forum, but basing this on previous posts in this, I think an S&S 4D Free Spin will come in 2018 and replace BB.

I'd love to do something like Gatekeeper (obvi not a winger though) where we knock down the Pictorium and turn it into the station house/queue for a new coaster that works it's way over the entrance, main gate and out towards Condor and back.

Yum.
Okay, so, I tested the Junior El Loco thingy in BB's spot, and it works with space to spare. Okay, I must admit, it was a RCT 2 recreation, so it's probably not the most accurate. Oh, well.

I think we will be seeing a Larson super loop in RC's spot. I would love to see some flying scooters in sky trail's spot as well as MANY more Coca Cola freestyles and for the Oreo shake at Johnny Rockets to be on the dining pass officially.

I'd add a Coke Freestyle in every themed area and Hurricane Harbor... County Fair probably needs 2.

Ya its a nostalgic one for us 80's kids since (IIRC) it was the only roller coaster smaller kids could go on back then. Hopefully they can update the restraints.

If I were anyone higher-up at the park, I'd tell Damon (I think.) to give the Demon a refresh. Look at the paint job. Overall, Demon is an eyesore. I'd agree by giving it new trains. Also, I'd say give it paint job & change the theme.

Not sure they would want to change the theme, but some updated effects would greatly improve the experience too.

I am surprised they didn't make this the VR ride. Though I wonder if they couldn't because its such a rough ride the VR sets would get knocked off the riders heads!
