  1. Did not expect this announcement. Awesome to see Six Flags spending that kind of cash again.
  2. Yikes, I hope the controls and electrical components for Kandaa, Pulsar and others are not completely fried. What a mess it'll be to clean regardless.
  3. Talon absolutely kicks butt. It may not be quite as good as Montu or Raptor, but it is forceful, glass smooth and re-rideable. Hydra is fine but not nearly as good. I remember waiting in line for a second ride during the opening season and talking with some other guests about how it did not touch Talon. It has some weird track bends and even had a small rattle opening season. The drop is good in the back row and the JoJo roll is interesting. Steel Force is always quite good, especially when it warms up. As long as you're not expecting Intamin air.
  4. It's a little thing compared to Jersey Devil Coaster, but it is awesome that they can finally run Ka and Zumanjaro at the same time. What a cool visual.
  5. Ok, that’s hilarious. Saw the rumor on another site and immediately navigated over here. I was thinking, what the hell reason would they close that coaster? The more you know!
  6. ^I'm a fan of Mantis/Rougarou but I understand why it's not universally loved. It's one of the more intense coasters in the park, and something about the layout still intimidates. While I am stuck at work in North Carolina, at least I can enjoy the web cams and hope people are having fun on SV and Millennium.
  7. Neat concepts. I would love Intamin to finally nail a modern water coaster/flume project. Perilous Plunge was absolutely insane when I rode it back in mid 2000s at Knott's. Obviously we know the saga of Pilgrims Plunge at Holiday World and Shoot the Rapids at Cedar Point, and the Energylandia Speed Water Coaster shoot-the-chutes and its clones aren't exactly well liked. Has anyone ridden the American Dream shuttle here? The new concept looks like an expanded version of that.
  8. I would at another Six Flags park but SFGadv is pretty good about using all the trains. Nitro always runs three, Bizarro usually runs three in the summer, Ka only runs two or three of four because of the way they use the single station now.
  9. This lift-stop "catastrophe" was featured on our local news in Burlington, North Carolina. Why? Jesus people are dramatic. Add that to my GP friends freaking out that they just rode a pendulum ride at Kings Dominion "exactly like the one that collapsed in Egypt" and you can see why people are needlessly scared of thrill rides. Random question, can Batwing run more than one train at this point?
  10. This looks amazing. And some of the more recent footage makes the pacing look CRAZY. Big year for S&S!
  11. Looks awesome. Great to see S&S having such a great year in the US.
  12. ^Lightning Racer is not, that’s a fantastic ride. Wildcat is a little wilder.
