Wonder Woman is looking amazing. I was curious on how it would look once it’s actually built. This is going to look epic for a park like CGA. Even though they are very differently themed, I will say the yellow on this this single-rail track really does look like WW’s lasso. I really can’t wait to see CGA’s finished product now.

I need to make it to this park in the near future, as I’ve always been fascinated by how the coasters come close to or perched right on top of those canyons. Thank you for sharing!

^^ Good advice, I'll keep that in mind. We do usually rent a fluffy bunny in the waterpark when we go to Six Flags. Sounds like that should work here too.

I'm wondering if they are actually going to put the "lake" under it, as they showed in the animation, or will just let grass grow in.

I think it would look amazing with water under it, so hopefully they go with that design.


(and the Skyscreamer, which is right up against the quarry wall, feels so much higher, as you lift up over the wall, and above the nesting hawks that live there)

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

I'm laughing how Superman was closed due to temperatures while here in New England, Mind Eraser is running in 9 degree weather, with a wind chill of -3. :lmao: :lmao:

Great report, Wonder Woman looks stellar!
I LOVE CLASSIC WOODEN COASTERS AND NOSTALGIA.
I AM STRONGLY AGAINST NEUTERING WOODEN COASTERS
(Sadly) I AM THOROUGHLY AGAINST TOPPER TRACK. WOODEN COASTERS ARE SUPPOSED TO RATTLE YOU.

heh. . got an email from Six Flags thanking me for attending on Tuesday, and asking to take the survey.

I'll fill it out, but wonder if I should just link them to this report :)

you gotta remember, it's Texas. It was in the 70's last week, "winter" for us tends to be temps in the 50's. So of course, the coasters/rides aren't prepared for anything really below that weather.

(the snowfall we got 2 1/2 weeks ago was a rare occurance).

Happy New Year back to you, Bill (and to all).


actually doing the survey now, they make a point of saying that it's anonymous, so yeah, I won't link back to my report, but I WILL give them the same answers I noted here: Iron Rattler dispatches need some help, everyone else in the park was fantastic :)

Thanks!

not sure I'll make it back before end of Season on 1/7, but this Year, Fiesta Texas opens for the season (weekends only - other than spring break) on Feb 24th, then Fri-Sat-Sun starts in mid March, before going back to daily in late May.

so a really extended season, if not 100% "year round"

so hopefully will get up there to see coaster in late Feb, and will report again!
