Unless that name has been used already lol!



How about replace Condor with one instead?


Let's keep Condor right where it's at :) Sky Trek is never open anymore and is like 45 years old! Or replace Home Town Fun Machine with the Skyscreamer (if it would fit)!



How about replace Dare Devil Dive with a Skyscreamer? Wasn't STT closed due to Covid? I suggested getting rid of Condor cause Six Flags has been removing Huss Rides lately[/quote]I believe your right on STT being closed for covid. I don't that's going anywhere anytime soon. Condor's spot I don't think is big enough for a sky screamer, but hey what do I know? [emoji1745]

I remember a while back someone posting a photoshopped pic of a sky screamer on top Dare Devil Dive's pedestal, and it appears that it's a perfect fit, at least for the ride itself. The queue space for it would probably be pretty funky to say the least, but I think it would still be manageable.

If we were looking for a space to add something, I've wondered if they could do something with the old Hurricane Harbor entry area now that it's a separate gate. When you add in the wide path there, the open space between the path and the Demon, and the old Trailblazer spot I feel like they could do something.

That's all assuming they have any desire to add a new ride without removing one, and they haven't shown much appetite to do that in a while.

We've said for years the DDD plot is perfect but they'd have to redo that foundation. Trusting it another 20 years is iffy. It would be a perfect addition up on that pedestal by AE.

& yes, if they add one, the only name option is the Great American Skyscreamer. No other choices. None.

I was rather hopin that space could be used for a new small family coaster or thrill ride to be honest just cause they could put that HH entrance to great use for that but it totally makes sense to use it for HH instead. As for that old Trailblazer plot, PLEASE add a ride there my god.

^Based on the clue from the first poster, sounds like maybe Buccaneer Battle is (finally) going away sometime soon! For a coaster I hope!

ANY ride is better than SuckANeer Battle! I'd be thrilled if they put a screaming swing (ie Skyhawk) there. Or a small invert family coaster like Dragonflier.

As of Sunday signs for Yankee Clipper, Loggers Run and Roaring Rapids are removed. RR shows work, but does anybody know about the flumes?

I'm sticking with my original prediction. A Zamperla double heart in place of Buccaneer Battle. They'll be able to market it as the tallest coaster in the park without breaking the bank

They need to get height approval from the village board for anything above 175 feet (changed from 120 ft around 2017, I believe). We would have already seen a zoning board meeting occur if this was the case. I could definitely see some form of major project in the BB, go karts area for 2023 though.

I'd much rather see this at something like Frontier City, not our park. It just seems weird after Maxx.

Roaring Rapids sign was removed at the start of this season as it undergoes major rehab.

Yankee Clipper appears to be getting work done as well given that sign was down during Fright Fest and they had pardon our dust signs everywhere. Not sure about Loggers but I know roof in queue house needed to be fixed

It’s not uncommon for Six Flags to remove signs for rides as they undergo rehab and stuff.

Thanks. You mentioned Roaring Rapids might be renamed White Water Rampage. That's cool. Do you know if Yankee Clipper is getting a DC theme? I gather mgmt is improving the area around V2 for The Flash reboot, or maybe totally rebooting YH into a DC section?

That was pure speculation. Six Flags seems to like rehabbing rides and returning them to their original names. But with a new CEO again, who knows now? As for everything else, I just know they are working on Yankee Clipper. To me, a DC re-theme of YH makes sense since 3 rides (Joker, Batman, and now Flash) are all DC themed.
