The 8 persons trains shouldn't be too much of a problem once all the hype dies down as long as the ride time is similar to Goliath at SFGam.

Looks like I will be driving more to SFFT next year. I hope they have a plan for capacity. It looks like it will have tons of moments of crazy airtime.

Very awesome. I've been wanting to get back to San Antonio. Sea World's new coaster got me starting to make plans, and this pretty much makes it mandatory.

This is one of the coolest new coaster designs I've seen in a while. Then again, it's RMC, so I shouldn't be surprised.

Welp, didn't see this coming.

Looks ridiculous, and the air in the back of the train on that first drop is going to be sick. This certainly makes me wonder what Cedar Fair have up their sleeve for Knotts and CGA since everyone was convinced the first RMCraptor was going to one of those. Also if, like the freespins, is this the only SF Park getting one for 2018, with more coming at other SF parks in subsequent years?

Two major negatives: the capacity is going to absolutely suck on this thing, and shame one of the hottest parks in the country didnt replace a water ride with another water ride.
Look for the humor in anything and you will find it.

I strongly suspect that this is what will go in the space next to Joker at SFOT! That space will be just about big enough for it once they demolish the remaining buildings.

Awesome. I was hesitant to comment on this since given the announcement time and the fact that there's only one story on Google News I figured they sent this to everyone (including TPR) with an embargo and USA Today completely ignored it. I have no way of knowing if this is true, but it seems like that's probably what happened since nobody else has posted it.

Anyway a few thoughts...

1) I'm really surprised by this news. I really didn't see Six Flags going this direction and the fact that they are is really exciting.

2) The first drop should provide an absurd amount of airtime in the back seats. I was going to say back "row" but :lol: , which brings me to my next point...

3) 8 Passenger trains? :lol: :lmao: :lol: :lmao: :lol: :lmao: :lol: :lmao: :lol:

I guess it's really no worse than the Premier Sky Rocket that they built at Discovery Kingdom. Maybe it won't be as bad as we think. It definitely seems like this is the ride to run to at rope drop though.

4) The fact that they didn't use the terrain even though they could have easily done so (it's actually replacing a ride that did use the terrain) and instead chose to build it on flat ground leads me to believe they're open to the idea of cloning this which sounds awesome to me. It would have been cool to see a vertical drop off the cliff though. This is PURELY speculative bullsh*t on my part.

5) I guess we need to finally pull the trigger on that Texas trip next year.

Does it look like to anyone else that there are OTSR on these trains? Only disappounting part of this announcement if true. Otherwise the ride looks stellar. Amazing addition to what looks like an already great park.
