Maxx Force NEW FOR 2019

Talk about anything that has to do with Six Flags Great America and Hurricane Harbor here.
Postby gottastrata33 on June 10th, 2019, 12:31 am
I’m bein very sarcastic & b*tcy I’m well aware. I understand it’s updated, renovated - all of that. It’s just a lot of lcrap in that store. Like another shop with a wall of candy? Right now it just looks very basic while we were bein told it was a Maxx Force gift shop. To be honest, I think it’s too big for a ride exit shop. It was made to be a park shop. But you’re right, they could still add things. The ride isn’t even open so they have plenty of time to “Maxx it up”.

Saw a comment on Rob's latest yt video saying a park attendant told them they were already testing Maxx at night. Is there any weight to that claim? Might explain why there were water dummies in the train yesterday without much movement.

Why would they test at night? Wouldn't they want it during the day to see everything better?

I don't know if it's true or not but I doubt it. Wouldn't we see marks/scuffs on the white track from the tires on the train?

Testing during the day is great marketing for the ride too.

So is there any scuff marks on the track is the real question here.

Not including around the station and right at the launch of course.

I don't believe the testing at night only. If your coaster is this behind, you have no time to spare. The park on a lot of days is open from 10:30 am - 8pm, and people don't leave the park exactly at 8 pm (Think 9pm). With all that noise this ride supposedly makes, they are testing this ride late at night? I don't believe this.

Rides have been tested at night. It’s really not that uncommon.

One or the potential reasons for Maxx at night I saw was to keep the gp from seeing rollbacks that might happen with initial testing.

Remember how little they care about the ride being 'this behind'. There's no evidence at this point that there's any particular date they're trying to hit. It'll be done when it's done.

I think the absolute due date to complete Maxx is prior to 9/21:

https://www.sixflags.com/greatamerica/special-events/coaster-challenge

"All Coaster Challenge participants will receive early entry to the park to kick-start their day. Challengers will get VIP access to ride Maxx Force from 9:00-11: 00 am and Whizzer from 9:30-11:00 a.m. VIP early entry allows participants to get extra laps in before the park opens. All participants will receive a Flash Pass to all roller coasters until 1 pm."
Single Day Ride Count Record

50 rides 8/17/2018 (Without Flash Pass - Coasters After Dark)

It's a Reddit video from r/rollercoasters. You might need to copy/paste the link into a browser

Ragin Cajun and Iron Wolf went from Six Flags Great America to Six Flags America. I guess they weren't GREAT anymore.

All it did was launch and rollback according to the video.

This is interesting on reddit:
https://www.reddit.com/r/rollercoasters ... _coasters/

It sounds like a very, very poor decision to buy one of these, types of rides.
