2022 Speculation

Talk about anything that has to do with Six Flags Great America and Hurricane Harbor here.
Postby JackGlass on September 17th, 2021, 9:01 am
Not related to Great America. But Six Flags ordered a third train for Iron Rattler at Fiesta Texas to increase capacity.

I really like the direction Spanos is taking this company

^Of note, Iron Rattler is not capable of running 3 trains at the same time. The capacity increase will come from not needing to drop to 1 train ops when a train is due for annual maintenance now that SFFT is year round.

Just saw the painting on V2, was wondering if it was ever repainted between 2001-now? Can't recall. I think it was but can't be sure.

I'm about 99% sure it has never been repainted since 2001. I remember back in 2011 saying "This thing really needs a paint job" :lol:

& now here we are, finally being painted. What do we think of the bright yellow & red? I'm much more happy with the yellow track vs the SFDK version.

I'm bein wayyy too hopeful in hoping they pull a "Mr Freeze" & reverse the trains. Villain up the ride & call it "Reverse Flash" instead of the Flash. Seems like a missed opportunity if they don't do this lol

Supports were painted in 2013, I believe. Same color.

Unrelated to SFGAm 2022 speculation but Magic Mountain has just announced an extended clone of Jersey Devil Coaster for next year called WONDER WOMAN: Flight of Courage. Apparently this new coaster is going to be 1 foot taller and 330 feet longer than it's New Jersey counterpart.

Thoughts? I know this is too early to ask this, but could this be SFGAm's 2023 coaster?

I doubt it, this coaster requires a space about 664 ft. long. They would have to do something weird, such as remove Batman and Little Dipper or remove Batman and Johnny Rockets to make it fit.

Got something against Batman or what? :lol:

I think they get make it work if they use the original Jersey Devil layout and not the extended version going up at Magic Mountain. Roaring Rapids has been closed all year with all of the its signage being removed. They can put a clone there if they also use a small portion of land from the Picnic Grove for the dive loop and final turnaround.

Roaring Rapids is not going anywhere. It is the most popular and very needed water ride in the park.

It needed a lot of work. It was visible from the train. Much like other rides that they refurb, they typically take down the sign. And maybe could even be changing name back to original White Water Rampage. I took some pictures that I could upload once I get on a computer.

Yankee Clippers sign is down now too but is also getting refurbed/rethemed

A single rail would fit in Buccaneer Battles spot Becuase I believe California GA has one in that exact same spot.

Oh ok. I had no idea that they did that for refurbs. Thanks for clearing that up. I also had no idea that Roaring Rapids had a different name when it opened.

I feel I've mentioned this in the past but I'll say it again. If SFGAm wants to add a single rail coaster, getting a prototype model like WW at SFFT or RailBlazer and CGA would be absolutely miserable with how popular our park is, especially this past season. They need to maximize the ride's capacity as much as possible to prevent insanely long wait times. That's why I think a larger model is more suitable for our park because of the 12 riders per train compared to the 8 riders for the prototype models.

Do you really think so about the name change to WWR? I remember 1984! It's never been clear to me about the fee/process to trademark an attraction name, why another Goliath vs Mardi Gras Hangover? You'd think a record-breaking coaster/ major investment like Goliath deserves its own brand identity. Also, retheming Yankee Clipper? Is it going the way of DC Comics, too? Hmm... if so a retheme of YH is probably assured. Is there further speculation about removing the flumes? Thanks for the fascinating rumors.

How about a Skyscreamer where Sky Trek is at and it's called "Wonder Woman's Lasso" ??

Unless that name has been used already lol!

Let's keep Condor right where it's at :) Sky Trek is never open anymore and is like 45 years old! Or replace Home Town Fun Machine with the Skyscreamer (if it would fit)!

How about replace Dare Devil Dive with a Skyscreamer? Wasn't STT closed due to Covid? I suggested getting rid of Condor cause Six Flags has been removing Huss Rides lately
