2019 rumors, thoughts, speculation

Talk about anything that has to do with Six Flags Great America and Hurricane Harbor here.
Postby SFGAM_Hog on August 29th, 2018, 8:15 am
My final prediction is a launch coaster that is 175 ft tall, the fastest acceleration in North America, 2 inversions, and it is called Maxx Force. I really doubt a water coaster or any HH expansion for that matter.

So i may or may not have made my final prediction, don't feel like checking tho, so here we go! I probably have gone way to in depth, but I was trying to piece together every bit of evidence to make my prediction.

Basic Info
Name: Maxx Force
Ride type: S&S Air Launch Coaster
Location: Pictorium site and land behind Whizzer. They will use the pictorium entrance for the new ride.

Stats
Height: 175 ft
Speed: 80-85 mph (based on chinese models)
Length: 3280 ft or 4000 ft (1000 meters in ft OR 1000 multiplied by 4 girls)

Records Broken
Fastest Acceleration of any coaster in NA -- 1.8 seconds
Tallest vertical loop in NA (maybe even world) -- 175 ft (My reason behind this is in the 3rd teaser when they show the number 175, and they have the girls swinging there arms in a circular motion)

^ I'd love a bigass loop, but I hope if speculation holds true, and this is an S&S launcher- I hope it gets launched right into a top hat first.

If they decide to spend $20+ Million and give us a genuinely bad ass coaster, I would be totally shocked. It's not impossible under this current formula, but it just seems highly unlikely based on the trends in recent years.

I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings. This could either be another let down or one of the best coasters at the park. Time will tell

Yes... please. But the large loop makes me think premier though. They could possibly use the new vekoma looking track for this ride too. I can't wait for this announcement. This may finally be our signature rollercoaster.

I still feel like it can still be a water coaster. But I just have to dream that it would happen :mrgreen: .
How come Lightning Rod is never open when I go.

Top 10: 1. El Toro 2. Steel Vengeance 3. I305 4. Fury 325 5. Maverick 6. Mako 7. Iron Rattler 8. Medusa Steel Coaster 9. Raptor Clones 10. Maxx Force.

Is a giant loop too similar to Mardigra Hangover?

Us enthusiasts would know the difference, but would the GP be confused by having two of the "world's largest loops" in the same park. Maybe GAm would want to steer away from that.

I think it will have a top hat instead. But I'm not completely ruling out a loop.

Last checked, SF has not filled a request for permission to build above the height restriction of 125 feet. So I don't expect it to be over 125 feet.

^ Current zoning rules only need approval over 125ft if the construction is within 500ft of the property line. Otherwise, the park can build up to 200ft.

The height restriction on that plot of land is 200 feet not 125 feet. If was changed back in 2015.

I thought it was changed, but still believe that if they planned on building anything over 125' at the park, they would still seek approval due to the proximity of the park to residential areas and in the interest of being "good neighbors"

Who knows. They haven't built anything over the 125' since it was changed...We will find out tomorrow.

What do you think is coming? I do not see a Hurricane Harbor addition being themed to racing. The entire theming of HH is tropical, themed to waves and water. What addition would involve clues for stats like 2, 175, etc.

DragsterH20? Water parks do it. It’s not uncommon. I’m just setting myself up low. I mean this is a chain that released the first skywarp saying a “combined speed of 70mph” um what? So even if we get a launch I’m waiting for it to be something more along the lines of a motorbike coaster or Backlot stunt coaster style ride. I’m not expecting anything massive.

You’re killing my coaster dreams!

My final guess is a launch coaster of some type. Hopefully that is reality tomorrow. By the way, what time tomorrow will the vid drop? JRA is still around, right?

Yep, he still is I think. I'm not sure of what time it'll come out. I've heard 6, I've heard 3 so I really don't know.

I have to admit i'm pretty impressed and just short of amazed at how well they have managed to keep whatever this thing is under wraps. Way to go Six Flags, you sneaky b*stards. 8)

That strikes me as pretty unlikely. Doesn't really make sense to make the village spend time and money to hold a meeting (and spoil their own surprise in the process) when there's no requirement that they do so.

Am I the only one that thinks it can be both a coaster and a minor water park update?

If they move the queue to the new coaster right next to Viper's, where the current HH entrance is, they could theoretically have the line through the old HH walkway and tapering off right before HH's current entrance. With that, you can make either the current Pictorium entrance or the little section to the side of Sky Trek Tower the new HH entrance, much closer to the front of the park. The current Pictorium entrance just seems to be in such a weird spot for a coaster, since it isn't in Carousel Plaza anymore, but not quite in Hometown Square either.

^ This could mean nothing, but Max in the final teaser runs through the Pictorium entrance so I'm thinking that's the entrance. But the "Max, take the detour!" could mean something, I just don't understand what.

If you consider your water park update that they close the current entrance to hurricane harbor and move it due to the new ride.
