Anyone got an update on rumors for VR? I hope they are going to release it within the next few days. I'd be soooo upset if it goes to Mindbender or Goliath.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I could actually see it working out okay on Superman if they used both platforms - one for VR and one for none. That might actually make sense.

My vote is to move it to [the trash cans] Blue Hawk. It actually would have fit in somewhat nicely with the retheme. And there is never really that much of a line for it anyways. And I never really have a burning desire to ride Blue Hawk regardless so nothing is lost.

Lord have mercy don't move it to Goliath or Mindbender.

I think it would make sense at Superman with the dual station, and there is a good chance that will happen.

My only disappointment with this is that we won't get to see Superman operate in all of its three train glory. Also, I'm sure the VR line would back up beyond the queue split for the two stations, so in the end everyone would be stuck waiting with the VR people while the non-VR is under-filled. They would probably need a longer separate queue for VR. Maybe they could run a temporary railing splitting the queue into two, but I don't know if that would fit.

ideally, VR would be reservation only through Flash Pass entry. That would still back up non-VR Flash Pass users though.



If it goes to Blue Hawk, I could see that working if they are running both trains. Expect super slow ops though. Also, the line was decently long during a few of my visits last season, especially with one train ops. VR ops would probably be lower hourly capacity than one train non-VR, so the line could easily still get VERY long.



So essentially... VR is a bad idea on every coaster in the park (unless they did a reservation system and only applied VR part of the day)

I thought Blue Hawk would be better than Ninja. Can't be worse.

Is anyone going not this weekend, but next weekend for opening day? I'm wondering about VR, the trains (and hopefully paint) on GA scorcher, Superman repaint and 3 trains?, and JLBFM. I'm really hoping that the "new" area around superman and JLBFM looks nice, too (but it's six flags, guys).

Acrophobia is getting the VR! YES! Not a coaster, But, unfortunately that means one of the best drop rides in the U.S. is basically gone because of all the long lines.
