Id love to see a 4D coaster like X at SFStL, buuut im entirely sure this will never happen :cry: If i remember properly the price of these coasters are outrageous. At this point there are only two of these coasters in the world and even though there is another one being built, I highly doubt we will see these become the new ride to copy like batman was. If it was it would make my year, but I believe i am being realistic with this.

Actually removing Dragon's Wing would free up enough space to expand Britannia, add several flat rides as well as relocate and shorten Boss' queue line. Right now it's the Great Wall of China of queue lines.

As much as I agree about The Boss' queue, it should be illegal to remove SkyCoasters. I've been on 3 of them for upwards of 30 rides total, and honestly it doesn't get much better.

This backwards train business must be a nice money-saver. Management can spend minimally and still have something to point to as a new attraction. Falls right inline with the making use of existing assets approach they seem to be taking.

I'd love to see them try this approach for the spinning mice/spinning coasters throughout the chain- just to see if they could get away with it. I bet they would.

^ How would they do that for the spinning coasters, Considering they won't be facing one point for long.

That's exactly my point. I contend that they (Six Flags) could get away with that.

Does anyone think this could delay the opening of Mr. Freeze from the rest of the park?
Because I was a SFOT last week and missed riding it there. Now I just have my fingers crossed that It'll be open when I visit SFStl next month!

Me thinks this a pretty easy change, at most there's a few changes to the train's brake fins and such, but not much else requires changing. Unless of course there are new themed elements.
