It would be nice to see something go in dare devil dive's spot. I like the skyscreamer idea or a giant dicovery.

I think a skyscreamer would fit better in terms of ground area taken up. I was thinking a giga discovery would fit nice in Bucky's spot.

We could also get a second generation enterprise from zamperla. This would be like the new ride st. louis is getting for 2019

2nd generation enterprise are Huss, nobody has bought one. Zamperla Endeavours are not the the same thing.

Endeavour looks awesome! One of these would fit great in Sky Trails old spot!

This ride reminds me of The Orbit.

There pretty good, I have ridden several, the 48 model and 24. You can really feel the G's unlike the old school Eneterprises. I think the actually Huss 2nd generation will be better once people start buying them. They are surely more expensive b/c the program is more extensive. Zamperla stuff is known for being very cost friendly.

That second generation Huss looks awesome!

As far as the Endeavour goes, I've never rode one! But I've heard really good reviews about them!

On a side note, I wonder if Six Flags will start purchasing more Sky Rocket 2 coasters! Those are really inexpensive and the GP seems to love them. Six Flags has installed Free Spins at nearly every park, and the Sky Rocket 2 along with the Raptor seems to be a good, cost effective cookie cutter coaster!

I’ll vote for a Mack Powersplash where V2 is now. I’m in the camp that feels that Maxx Force might make V2 redundant and if they do get rid of BB I’d like to see a water ride added somewhere in the park. I do miss Orbit so one of those newer flats being tossed around would be pretty good too.

Other ideas being discussed here for down the road make a lot of sense: refresh the kids areas, repainting, move go-karts, skyscreamer where DDD is now, add a new unique coaster (like a Raptor), etc...

A Mack PowerSplash only fits in that area if you remove Yankee Clipper too. V2 is about 346 ft long and Pulsar is about 530 ft long.

I love the look of the 2nd Gen Huss Enterprise. Though Six Flags would probably go with the Endeavor.

Thanks. Wouldn't want to lose one of the flumes. Still would say if a water ride goes they should add a new one.

Mack Power Splash would work if they put it in Hurricane Harbor and ran it right along the edge of the water park in the parking lot.

As cool as it would look from the parking lot, I doubt they would do that. I don't know of Any Six Flags park that has a coaster in their water park.... yeah I know Maxx Force extends into the water park, but it's not actually part of it, lol


Plus I don't think people would want their cars in the parking lot to get soaked, lol

No joke, I’ve thought of this several times. I’d love to see that here, if it’s done the way I’ve thought/you described. I thought it’d be cool if you could somehow have an entrance from both parks that merge into one. Clearly there would have to be a crowd control position. But would it be a hassle? Someone photoshop it into maps haha

That looks amazing man!

I wish they would consider something like this! That would look absolutely amazing right in the front of the park like that! and Pulsar looks like an awesome ride!

Looks great! Would be an interesting alternative to the Master Blaster style water slides that many water parks have now. It would for sure be something unique for the water park to have a ride like Pulsar. Not sure I can see a good way for people to get to it from the dry park in that location but that could be okay - in theory if it is too cold for the water park to be open folks aren't going on water rides anyway.

That would give them a good excuse to make an easy access entrance to Hurricane Harbor, where Sky Trek Towers current exit is.

Aquaman was a huge hit at the box office and it would be dumb not to capitalize on it! A Mack Powersplash at Great America, Great Adventure and Magic Moutnain themed to Aquaman would almost certainly cause attendance at those parks to surge!


Edit: I was thinking, they could move the park exit closer to those trees in entrance plaza and extend carousel plaza into that Concrete pad. THAT would give the Power Splash an entrance through the dry park as well as Hurricane Harbor!

Suicide Squad & Dark Knight Rises were hits and didn't get much at the park.

I believe I rode an Endeavour (Catwoman's Whip at SFOT) and it was great! I actually liked it better than Orleans Orbit because so much more airflow and I wasn't overheating on the ride!!

DC has a new movie coming out called Shazam.

I would be very surprised if we dont see a ride named Shazam somewhere in Six Flags chain in 2020.

Gonna go left of center and think Camp Cartoon will get expanded and revamped in 2020. Hopefully into Bugs Bunny Boomtown

I'm told their focus will be the kids areas next along with interest in HH & AE. Note, these are just general points of interest that we can all agree could us/wouldn't hurt to receive some attention. These are not rumors. There has already been focus on AE the last two seasons though in repaint so that could be as far as they're going with that. We will see.

I personally would love to see the kids areas expanded or even rethemed. Add in a couple new rides, a coaster & a food option even as little as an ice cream shop.

I'd like to see them refurbish AE and expand Camp Cartoon for 2020. But I personally would rather see Eagle get a retracking and some t.l.c.

I think kidzopolis is a better candidate for Bugs Bunny Boom Town.
As for the Eagle area, I've always suspected that the paint job was a precursor to something bigger.
