It was fast during PART of the Christmas time, but than all of a sudden, it was going slow, and that Hometown Fun Machine, Big Easy Balloons, and the Bumper Cars would have much LONGER cycles. All of them are way too short. Seriously, the tea cups get a 3 minute ride, and these are like 40 second rides. Ridiculous. I wonder which of these rides will bite the dust first because of the HORRIBLE too short of a cycle, and no one will want to ride these. I barely rode any of them this year because of the too SHORT of a cycle on each.

With how bad Great America was running the Hometown Fun Machine (It was a slow ride cycle this year until it seems later in the season, and again way too short), one of the rides I couldn't wait to ride was the Scrambler at Six Flags St. Louis called Shazzam. It's been a terrible Hometown Fun Machine type of year this year!

At least for the Balloons, I got my fill at Saint Nicholas Village which was amazing compared to Great America's pathetic ride cycle Balloons.

I truly despise these short ride cycles. We barely ride flats anymore. Just not worth it. Rode RUE once all season.....horrible.

Something I would love to see at SFGAm would be a Gravity Group Family Wooden Coaster. It would be a step up from Whizzer, Dipper, and SSR (yes I know it's just Sprocket Rockets but I don't care), and a step down from Demon for kids who don't want to go upside down yet. These rides are fantastic. Just look at Oscar's Wacky Taxi or Kentucky Flyer, both are amazing rides. Something a little closer to home: Hades 360: is also an amazing ride. This new woodie would be a smaller version of that. It would be a great fit for our park and we might be able to get the record for most wooden coaster track back from Kings Island.
1.) Steel Vengeance 2.) Maverick 3.) Goliath (SFGAM) 4.) Top Thrill Dragster 5.) Mystic Timbers
Ragin Cajun and Iron Wolf went from Six Flags Great America to Six Flags America. I guess they weren't GREAT anymore.

I would have no problem with that. Those are some of the best woodies around.

They say there isn't a spot in the park where rusting metal or peeling paint is at least 15 feet away from you.

I could see it Replacing V2 eventually. It would look nice on the waterfront.

If it replaced v2, at least one of the flumes would have to go for there to be enough room

Right now for me at least American eagle is unrideable as the rattle is to violent gives me headaches

I think the loop is so hideous lol the reg power splash looks nicer BUTTTTTT now that someone mentioned Tidal Wave, it makes it so much more appealing. What an amazing ode to the old ride that would be here...

Would be neat, but with the way it operates, even 200 riders per hour would be a pretty unreasonable goal to shoot for.

I'm all for this too. Mostly because I never rode it... Horrible capacity but for the right price its another coaster that I'm sure they can market as breaking some outlandish record :lol:

It could probably go to Frontier City in OK. It's a super fun ride! I got several rides on it in August, 2018.

This is actually a really good idea. I was thinking the Great Escape as well.
