Does the announcement get leaked earlier than 5? Last year it was 4, right?

Heh maybe I'll get a glimpse before I hit the hay tonight. Why didn't anyone tell me five AP classes would be a bad idea?

Hmmm. Would be kind of weird to market one as NA's first and install another. Maybe for 2020 or so

I'd think with 7-8 hours to go, i'll make my final prediction.

The most likely scenario here is a Zamperla Mega Disk'o called Hurricane Force 5, located in the former King Chaos spot. SF has the trademark, the logo, and everything else needed to market it, and it's a family addition. With the past two years being major additions, it seems like this is what will happen.

My last prediction:

Larson Superloop named Hurricane Force 5.
-100-110 ft. tall
-32 passenger trains
-Approximately 27.6 ft. x 100.74 ft. footprint
-Dark blue and yellow paintjob

Flash Sale officially ends on the 4th, but if I recall correctly they usually extend it a few more days.

Wait, has anyone brought up the parks last post? "From one king to another" does that mean king will be in the name?!

It's on Instagram. I don't think it means anything.
Edit: It looks like the Party Gras alligator. I would love if we names something like king cajun so they could keep the statues.

To me, whoever puts these things together is way too obsessed with King Chaos leaving. It feels like they are marketing King Chaos as a new ride instead of teasing for a new ride. That to me is a weird strategy. To me, you tell people once that something is leaving, and than you just tease constantly about the new ride.

Pretend, it's 1991 again, and Condor is the new ride. So you tease something like showing people the American Eagle logo, because Eagle is also a bird. Than, you show the Sky Trek Tower because the Condor is a taller ride. Than, you show a ride that spins. You can put a picture of a person in digital form with 4 arms.

I don't get it, and I don't get Six Flags America either. Grim Reaper is going to get rid of 1 attraction. It's also like there is supposed to be more excitement in figuring out what ride is leaving than the ride they are getting???

For Six Flags America, you can't even ride the ride that is going away because the marketing is, is the ride is going away.

Over Texas to me makes more sense in their marketing strategy.

From the constant King Chaos marketing, I can see 500 people who want to go on King Chaos again just because they advertised it so much which is the opposite thing they are trying to accomplish.
_______________

I think the whole point is that they probably want people to not worry about the ride closing even though that's what you think the whole thing is about, and on facebook, they think that's what it's about.

The circular lifesaver thing can just be because it's a Larson Looper that they consider a roller coaster.

^In that tweet above, you see an emoji of a roller coaster.

My money is on the second half of Golia finally getting built. At long last, we'll have GoliaTH.

Also, Superpoop, loop. Whatever. They'll call it Tidal Wave.

Keep in mind that the group of people who care about any of this is probably pretty small. It's just us obsessives, they're trying different things to keep it interesting. This certainly wasn't the best year, but it's better than nothing.

Your post did make me think of something that probably isn't happening, but it would make the teasers make a bit more sense - doesn't the Cyborg Cyber Spin thing Great Adventure is getting seem a lot like King Chaos, just more "extreme"? So, like, if we were getting one of those, it sort of makes sense to make people want to go on King Chaos (but better), right?

^I hope not. That thing just looks so sickening, and I like a bunch of different upside down rides. I can't believe they bought that ride. :shock:

My official prediction: Custom Super Loop in KC spot

What I would desire: Cyborg Cyber Spin (clone) for 2019, water park for 2018

I agree, a clone of the taller and faster Giant Discovery at Magic Mountain would also be cool for 2019.

Minor update, but if you try to go to passes / memberships on the website, you get redirected to the national flash sale page, with a countdown to midnight. Weird how the rides are announced at 4 am but the flash sale starts at midnight? :|

A few parks (not us) have their Flash Sale up already (example: https://www.sixflags.com/greatadventure ... son-passes). Seems pretty much the same as usual, although they give a "one-time, one-ride skip the line pass", that's new...

(A free photo, too!)
