Even if It's a kiddie ride, I used to like that ride a lot. I probably would ride it again if they bring it back, but I would either go early or late to avoid the kids.

I'm starting to get a full throttle short circuit coaster vibe here. Part of me thinks that's exciting and part of me hates the idea. If we were getting a lunched I would love to have something compact like a Mack.

I can dream. :roll:

I've never been on Full Throttle, but it looks decent from all the videos I've seen on youtube. I wouldn't mind something similar.

The teaser seemed to have an emphasis on speed. It showed the guy going down the slide in 2 seconds and said "you can do better" that doesn't really make sense as a watercoaster or any other kind of waterslide wouldn't go faster than that. Also, I went back into the ride naming survey, and it kept asking about names of rides with fast acceleration and large inversions. Call me crazy, but could we be seeing the Dodonpa of the United States?

Um. No. Just, no. People are looking WAY to much into these teasers. The Justice league towel has nothing to do with anything. They just grabbed a towel from the gift shop as a prop. And the rainbow? Really? Its part of the stock footage.

I'm looking way too far into it? Says the guy who put in the effort to find the stock footage Six Flags used. :lol:
It just so happened to be Justice League common colors and considering how much SF loves DC ride names right now it made sense to point out.

I did the name survey yesterday. There were several marketing questions about the name 'Maxx Force' and questions about names in categories like: fastest acceleration, fastest inversion, etc. Very detailed. Looks like the big clue in the new teaser is 2 seconds. I'm down with the vinyl record spinning in the background theory too, seems conspicuous when any background could have been used.

Ehh. Wasn't that hard. Just googled "Spinning record stock footage" took less than two minutes. I wasn't singling you out perse. I just find it hilarious how deep people get. Soon someone will count the checkers on the guy's shorts and claim they found a code telling them the name of the ride. :lol:

Well.... if we get a launched coaster next year, at least we know for a fact based on California's Great America that a Raptor could fit in Buccaneer Battles plot of land when the time comes, lol

I'm really hoping it's not a let down. Allthough for a water coaster, I enjoyed Mammoth at Holiday World and Thunder Rapids at Fiesta Texas so if it's something in those lines I would be happy.

Things are really heating up in the SFGAM fandom! :lol:

Ok now I'm definitely leaning toward a launch of some sort. :shock: Maybe they're teasing in HH because it has a water feature of some sort? Who knows at this point? Grasping at straws here, don't mind me..

I really hope it ends up being an S&S launch. Powder Keg at SDC is criminally underrated.

This second teaser scares me that it is going to be a water park expansion. Normally I wouldn't mind a water park expansion because Six Flags has been so good to our park in recent years, and also the fact that it will be 8 years in 2019 since the water park has had any upgrade. But this plot of land is so good to pass up on a coaster.

If we are getting a coaster, I think it will be the fastest accelerating coaster. Whether that record stands out for the whole world or just North America or even just the USA, it will break that record in sort of way. We could be seeing S&S come in to do this, and it could be a newer take on Do-Dodonpa. So far I see no clue in the two teasers that says anything about what its top speed could be, but the 1000 to me means length in meters, so basically 3,280 feet.

These are just the vibes I'm getting, I don't know about you guys.

I am stumped. I really think it's a launch coaster that reaches its max speed in less than 2 seconds, but the second teaser taking place in Hurricane Harbor as well as the first throws me off.

It's a launched super loop with the world's fastest inversion.

We've now had two teasers (out of probably four) be totally about the Water Park (and the place they've already acknowledged is right next to the Water Park). So it feels like either:

1. They're totally trolling people and are building a coaster
2. They're expanding the Water Park.

I'm not going to say 1 is impossible, they do weird things sometimes, but I don't really see the point of getting Water Park fans (who do exist) excited just to not give them anything (and, considering the space issues, not giving them anything any time soon).

The teasers imply speed and stuff, right? Look how they described Thunder Rapids at Fiesta Texas: "New Water Jet Propulsion - guests will experience lightning-fast uphill speeds and adrenaline pumping drops"

We'll see, they've surprised me before, but sometimes the obvious answer is the right one.

While Do-Dodonpa is my number one ride to ride on the world & Id prob have an aneurism over us getting one, I HIGHLY doubt that’s what’s coming here anytime soon & ever.

I’m goin to agree & say sometimes the obv choice is the right one. No point in getting the water park fans & families excited with two water park related teasers for a ride that has nothing to do with water slide. I think everyone is looking way too into this. My bet is a water coaster & possible expansion whether that includes another tower, pool, or cabanas etc or not idk.

To me, it doesn't really mean much (no offense) because they took down King Chaos.

https://www.skyhigherectorsllc.com/full ... e-jgxz89wm

They put King Chaos together also:
https://www.skyhigherectorsllc.com/full ... e-jgxz89wm

They build and take down everything, it seems.

I see a picture of Justice League even, but yet they say X-Flight. How could they mess up a picture that bad? I think it's the wrong words rather than the wrong picture.
https://www.skyhigherectorsllc.com/full ... e-jgxz89wm

They helped build X-Flight also:
https://www.skyhigherectorsllc.com/full ... e-jgxz89wm

From their facebook page, you sort of think that Six Flags Great Adventure is using them this year..., and they are rumored to NOT get a roller coaster - maybe a pendulumn ride?

I will give you this though, I do NOT see 1 water ride project they have done on their website. ??????

Nice find. Doesn't guarantee a coaster of course. They were pretty proud of building the Mardi Gras Hangover on that page after all. But whatever is going there is going to be something pretty substantial in size.

I still think a lot of people right now are in denial of the fact that this will most likely be a water park addition. I would still love to see them surprise us with a roller coaster, but a water coaster wouldn't be a bad addition. It would actually make me go to the water park more often, which is currently about once a year.

Thanks. I had a friend who did some research and they are a construction company that works for S&S so we shall see.
