  1. That's the 2018 HitP Map (not that the 2019 map will be significantly different from the 2018 map)
  2. Should be noted that that $79.99 price for the All Access Full day ticket is only for Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays through December. Monday through Thursday in that time period are listed at $59.99 for the All Access Full Day ticket ($49.99 for the General Access Mon through Thur). For comparison, The VOID VR experience just opened a new location near Washington DC. The price for the Avengers: Damage Control VR experience at the VOID in DC is $39.99. The $59.99 price for Mon-Thur access to Nick Universe doesn't seem so bad when making that comparison (though IMHO, both prices seem too high).
  3. This will complement an already great collection of coasters nicely and I definitely like the name and overall concept/theme of the coaster. It has been a good year so far for new coasters with interesting names... Orion, Pantheon, Candymonium...
  4. SEAS seems to be on a spending spree! A pretty good amount of investment across their five main parks in 2019, seems to be coasters (relatively big coasters) for all five of the SW and BG parks for 2020, and rumors/rumblings of additional coasters for (at least) BGW and SWSD for 2021.
  5. I've heard that the date was recently changed to 08292019 (same day all the other SF parks are announcing). Action Comics No. 252 is the comic book where Supergirl is introduced. Some think this could be a clone of the Supergirl ride (Zamperla Endeavour) that they just added to SFStL.
  6. A bit surprised there is no (obvious) Jurassic Worlds section. I wonder if that is evidence that IOA's Jurassic Park section will indeed be transformed into Jurassic World not unlike what they did in Hollywood (there was once talk that IOA would retain Jurassic Park and the new park would have Jurassic World). Nonetheless, I eagerly await the painfully slow release of new information on this project over the next few years! They should have plenty of remaining material for exciting media releases as this project progresses!
  7. In what regards? I can tell you that it is a pre-fabricated restroom (built off-site, then trucked in and just sat on a slab) so in that regards it may seem different from other restrooms. Don't quote me on this, but I believe they actually had to put a septic tank back there for the restroom because extending the sewar lines would have been too costly (swear lines were not already back there and I didn't see any work that indicated that they were extended back that way prior to the construction of the restroom).
  8. The boring locations create a rectangle ~80 ft wide by ~120 ft long. Zamperla lists the dimensions of their Giant Discoveries at 82' wide and 122' long. The boring locations would align (essentially) perfectly with where the footers could/would eventually go to have an attraction where the pendulum swings out towards the midway. Seems a pretty high probability of a Zamperla Giant Discovery coming to SFA...
  9. Fantastic to hear, especially considering they still have four months until (grand) opening. I wonder if that opens the door to the possibility of soft openings/AP previews before Aug 29th... (something I keep hearing won't happen prior to the listed opening date for DL)... nonetheless, looks fantastic!
  10. Are the images/footage provided from Disneyland or DHS? I realize that (in the long range) it doesn't really matter as they will both be more or less identical, but if they are from DHS, I had no idea they were this far along already.
  11. Not sure if you are being sarcastic or not, but painting a coaster by hand (with rollers and brushes) is actually the typical way of painting a coaster. Baynum Painting is pretty reputable when it comes to painting amusement park rides and if you go onto their blog you'll see plenty of images of people painting the rides exactly the same way they are doing it at SFA (not sure if Baynum is doing the painting for Firebird or not, but Baynum did repaint the ride when it originally opened as Apocalypse).
  12. The attached image shows the land that Six Flags America owns (the areas within the yellow lines). According to Six Flags' filings with the SEC, SFA owns 515 acres with 300 remaining developable acres. With regards to total acres, SFA has the second most total acres of all Six Flags parks behind SFGAdv (2200 acres) and ahead of Great Escape (345 acres). With regards to remaining developable acres, SFA and SFGAdv (456 developable acres) are the only two Six Flags owned properties with >50 remaining developable acres (again, all according to Six Flags' SEC filings). With regards to usage of remaining land, Six Flags America has strict regulations to noise levels at their property line. As such, unless they are building a show building or something else that would result in no sound increases, they cannot build to their borders and need to be cautious about putting rides that do cause a lot of noise (like coasters, especially launched coasters) too close to the property lines. Additionally, SFA has a lot of protected wetlands that go right through the center of the property. While it's not impossible to cross or go around these areas, they do present challenges. The best option (in my opinion) is the land to the south and west in the property (about where the blue placer is on the below map). But connecting this to the rest of the park would be challenging. It would be an ideal place for a separate gate water park (allowing them to incorporate the area of the current water park into the main park) or for some other separate gate attraction (like a shopping area or up-charge park) but I doubt that attendance at SFA is sufficient to justify such an addition.
  13. Same error for me... just signed up as well. Chrome and IE. *UPDATE* Seems to be working now...
