This thread would look so much different if we just had a B&M Hyper :?r

But then enthusiasts would complain that they got a B&M hyper instead of an Intamin hyper like Hyperion. It's a vicious cycle that never ends.

Six Flags knows how to run their own park to their liking. Whether their liking is our liking is to be determined, but the park is still there, still getting new investments here and there, and still under Six Flags' ownership.

Maybe at other parks, but trust me, us St. Louisians on here would stop complaining for years if we got a B&M hyper. I think we'd take a Vekoma hyper at this point :lol:

^Doubtful. No one is ever happy with what they have.

Build a hyper - People will complain that we need a modern family coaster
Build a modern family coaster - people will complain that we need a modern family coaster
Build both - People will still bitch about the food

Actually unrelated to the current discussion: a Vekoma hyper today would probably be freaking awesome based on what they've been doing recently in Poland and what's under construction in eastern Asia. See Lech coaster for example. Anyway back to our regularly scheduled SFStL b*tching :p

I was about to say. A Vekoma at this point would be wonderful. They're doing good work. And for good prices to try to gain market share again.

Then again is there much of a difference between them and S&S now given the shared ownership?

Do you have a link for this?

Yes, I do...

It sat where Ninja is now located, which is on the site of 1/2 of the Runaway Mine Train that was sold to Dollywood. The year of the Condor (tee hee) was 1987, I believe. That year the soon-to-be-sold mine train half sat unused for the year, and a chunk of track after the second lift was removed for the Condor. It was odd to see the track just hanging in the air, but that's what they did.
