2022 Speculation

Talk about anything that has to do with Six Flags Great America and Hurricane Harbor here.

Not related to Great America. But Six Flags ordered a third train for Iron Rattler at Fiesta Texas to increase capacity.

I really like the direction Spanos is taking this company

^Of note, Iron Rattler is not capable of running 3 trains at the same time. The capacity increase will come from not needing to drop to 1 train ops when a train is due for annual maintenance now that SFFT is year round.

Just saw the painting on V2, was wondering if it was ever repainted between 2001-now? Can't recall. I think it was but can't be sure.

I'm about 99% sure it has never been repainted since 2001. I remember back in 2011 saying "This thing really needs a paint job" :lol:

& now here we are, finally being painted. What do we think of the bright yellow & red? I'm much more happy with the yellow track vs the SFDK version.

I'm bein wayyy too hopeful in hoping they pull a "Mr Freeze" & reverse the trains. Villain up the ride & call it "Reverse Flash" instead of the Flash. Seems like a missed opportunity if they don't do this lol

Supports were painted in 2013, I believe. Same color.
