Should Great America rebuild the Riverview Bobs?

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

Old folks still rave about it until this day and it looks like a genuinely great ride. Should Great America rebuild this classic?

We've talked about this before on here over the years but i don't see it doin much for people today. I'd personally love it. & My family has raved about it to me. It looks out of control. It had an infamous turn & I think it was the one off that straightaway/MCBR.

I too have heard about it from my parents and those at that age that went there with fond memories of it. Never saw it in action until this video. Wow, it appeared ahead of it's time? The elements before the lift hill (you see this more now as a 'trend'), the numerous airtime hops with twists following...although it looks like it was a bit out of control and perhaps rough? It appears that way in the video at least lol.

Pretty involved though for a coaster from back then, very cool to see this.

I figured you'd hate the idea :) Actually take those terrible go carts out! I think we can all agree on that, eh?

For SFGAm... Probably Not
For Santa's Village... Perfect Fit

A GCI version of it at 48" and under 100ft would be a perfect attraction... Well once the Paintball place goes Bankrupt

At No Coaster Con two years ago the Santa’s Village rep said he wanted to add in a large scale family wooden coaster in the next 6-7 years. I believe that is the time frame but I’m not 100% sure.

Ragin Cajun and Iron Wolf went from Six Flags Great America to Six Flags America. I guess they weren't GREAT anymore.
