I would love to see maybe some Larson Flying Scooters, a smaller s&s tower, a kids train ride, a tilt a whirl, and maybe some antique cars added to Camp Cartoon. My hope was for them to knock down the back wall and Wilderness Theater and expand there but since they're repainting that wall, it looks like it won't happen.
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.

Can they please just rename the "Wilderness theater" the "Wilderness events center". Or would that be too much work?
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.

Giant Drop had 30-40 minute wait yesterday!! I don't think that ride is going anywhere. Plus it's quite unique at this park.

Demon actually had a 15 minute wait yesterday. I think until there's actually a good reason to remove this ride, it stays. It's a great starter looper coaster and with it's low 42 inch height requirement, it's sort of a family ride too!

I think Hometown Junk Machine can definitely go to the scrap heap! It has terrible capacity compared to Fiddler's and it basically does the same thing. I'd also love to see Big UN-Easy Balloons be replaced with something that is more efficient.

Buccaneer Battle was a total walk on yesterday, and it was warm and sunny!! That ride will look nice as a "new" ride at Magic Waters park.

As for a kid's thrillseeker in training coaster, I thought that's what Sprocket Rocket and Little Dipper were?

I'm all for Rue (The Day Of) Le Dodge going away. It's past it's prime and now, with people so focused on concussions and injuries, many parents might think twice before letting their kids go on it.

Revolution can go too. It's a spinning version of River Rocker. Maybe when they build Steel Eagle, it will happen!

Yet again more support for the idea that Eagle is the next ride to go/ get re-tracked. The park was totally packed today, even Little Dipper had past an hour long queue, and yet Eagle had literally no wait. I walked by and I saw maybe three or four people in a train. Maybe it was an operational thing, or maybe the ride just isn't drawing much of a crowd anymore or no one wants to re-ride it.

If they eventually install a coaster in Buccaneer Battle's plot. I hope they go with the name "Poltergeist" to compliment The Demon.

If they relocated those Kids rides and got rid of those games. That would be a good plot of land for a custom Raptor or a GCI or something like Fahrenheit at Hershey Park.

2020 water park expansion. Nothing added since 2011. That is followed by a flat ride, none added in forever(since they pretend larson loops are coasters). Flat ride collection is sorely lacking, just like it was at SFAdv and their last 2 years have been ABC Turbillion and a Zamperla Giant(170ft) Discovery. SFGAm could get either of the aforementioned or a Skyscreamer.

Would not at al b surprised to see the next few years as:
2020 water park
2021 flat ride
2022 flat ride
2023 kids area expansion/revamp

I'd love to see a water coaster come to Great America like the one at Fiesta Texas.

I don’t think we will see anything for the water park anytime soon since they acquired Magic Waters. Anything water park related will go to them.

The above seems reasonable. I don't see another custom coaster coming for years. I believe SFGAm has a rhythm going that'll generally continue until something changes it. This is what we've had:

2014: Custom coaster (Goliath)

2015: Miscellaneous small stuff (Hometown Park, general improvements, etc)
2016: Clone (Justice League)
2017: Clone (Joker)
2018: Clone (Mardi Gras Hangover)
2019: Custom coaster (Maxx Force)

My crystal ball tells me the coming years will look something like this:

2020: Miscellaneous small stuff (kids' areas, general improvements, another Ignite stage, etc).
2021: Clone (Giga Discovery at River Rocker's spot)
2022: Clone (RMC Raptor at Buccaneer Battle's spot)
2023: Clone (Star Flyer at Dare Devil Dive's spot)
2024: Custom coaster (where, oh where could it go?)

Somewhere between 2020 and 2024, the waterpark will probably get some love. However, I'm not sure what kind of love that would be.

That'd be awesome. I enjoy riding the train several times a year, but I'd love to see the train turned into a people mover. RobSFGAm had the idea of adding a station out in SW Territory. If you could do that, add one or two more trains, and have them running when the park opens and closes, you'd save wear and tear on many a foot.

The purpose of Magic Waters is to bring Rockford people to SFGAm and buy memberships/. The Rockford park produces very little revenue on it's own, thus will receive a very small Capex. SFGAm waterpark will need to receive it's normal schedule of new stuff. Making Magic Waters Capex in lieu of Hurricane Harbor would be a bad idea. Most people are already tired of the stuff at HH b/c there hasn't been anything new for a long time.
