Or is that the most likely outcome? Thanks!


Even following the construction from afar I can tell you, it is not going to open early. Especially a month early.

I was thinking the other day, with Six Flags over Georgia going the Carowinds route of making the park more state specific are they losing what they were essentially built up on . . . the six flags that ruled the area at some point? What would be the significance of the 6 flags if they are now not being represented in the park? Could it been just as easy to created ride names that fit the current themes?
"B&M will NEVER build a coaster over 300 ft..." until 2012
"Cedar Fair will NEVER build a coaster taller than MF..." until 2015

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

Because it is the name of the company. :P While all three original parks have their original areas, very rarely have I seen them put in a ride that has the same theme/name as the area it is in. Everyone knows that is what Six Flags does, basically Six Flags is just a name at this point. (St. Louis lost the flags last year, and as far as I know only Over Texas has its original flags flying.)

Awesome video!!! If you go to about the 33 minute mark, you will actually hear Someone asking Gene (communications manager) about the additional feet added to TC. You can hear him say in the background that more turns were added to the ride....

If anyone is hoping for a third lap to magically be added, you’re going to be sorely disappointed. The other RMCs have had some slight variations in the final product when compared to the renderings, and that’s all anyone should expect.

Exactly my thoughts. I'm just expecting some slight differences in banking/roll directions, things like that.
Steel: 160 / Wood: 32 / Total: 192
Home Parks: Knott's (when home), Lagoon (at school)
