  1. I know' the Skull looks so cool. Are they destroying the mountain or the Skull's face itself? The YouTube video of Apocalypse features a Skull Face, so why not keep it and find some nice way to incorporate with the ride? Or for theme keep some of the boats, put skeletons in them and position them at various points near the ride, to match the Apocalypse theme. It would look great while riding.
  2. I hope so, because the marketing that they are doing for this ride is fantastic. With a name like Apocalypse, people may be expecting some sort of stellar ride. But when they get there, they see that's it's only 100 ft, 2 inversions and a few turns. I know SFA's crowd; people will start comparing it to KD's Dominator. And sense Dominator opened in 2008, that's 3 years of appeal it's had on DC, MD and Northern VA. Now I could see if they added both rides the same year. Then people would be just as impressed with Apocalypse, before they make the 2 hour drive to KD and notice that there B&M is more thrilling. For all it's worth, I hope the crowd is impressed with Apocalypse.
  3. Your right KDCOASTERFAN. That's pretty much going to eliminate the old station. I sure hope this ride does the magic trick in boosting attendance. Because if it doesn't I could see the company making this park going another extended period time with no new rides. Sense it's style is new to the DC area, it should grab attention it's first year. But as we have all discussed, it's one of the older B&M's so it's more of a simple course. After riding it a few times, it will get dull pretty quick. That's just my opinion.
  4. I'd assume that theyr're getting rid of the old station as there's no further need for it. You don't think it could replace SFA's Hall Manor building? If their looking to improve Fright Fest for the future, this would be a good start. The old Skull Mountain station could easily be converted into an indoor haunted house. They could even extend the building to the further left; away from the ride for more space.
  5. What are they going to do with Skull Mountain's old station? I'm assuming they are building a new one for this ride because it's station in Six Flags Great America was up off the ground. Could they possibly convert Skull Mountain's station area into a sizable haunted house for the future?
  6. I was thinking the same thing but more with a pirate theme. Here are some ideas. It would be nice for them to just install pyrotechnic skulls near the course, that flame up when the ride passes by certain censors that they place on the track. Of course it would have to be linked to the pyrotechnics. Depending on what the line queue is, they could install skeletons and creepy theme music that plays while your in line. From what it looks like, the queue area is going to stand up off the ground and outside. If the line queue is similar to Batman: The Ride's queue, with the indoor parts, they could so some nice cave theme.
  7. I contemplated the same thing. If they were to put it in Gotham, they could stick it on the left side of Penguin Blizzard River, where all that open space is. The opening to get in that area, starts right across from the Thomas Town entrance that is near Superman. Just walk straight across from that and the path to Apocalypse would have started there. That would have left Skull Mountain where it was and we wouldn't have lost a single ride.
  8. KDCOASTERFAN, I have a question. When Mark Shapiro & Dan Snyder were thrown off corporate, were there other members that left with them? That would explain why these ride relocations are still progress? If we have a new corporate management, maybe they thought it was cheaper to give us a B&M that was being removed, rather than buying a new one. If people pack the park for this new attraction, I believe the new corporate management will give us a new coaster for 2013. It's possible that they are resuming the old master plan that they had for this park. You never know, next attraction could be the indoor ride we were suppose to get.
  9. Um, if corporate needs to be shown something, then who exactly is making the decisions? Listen, the only reason this park still exists is because it's an anomaly. For some strange odd reason, the place continued to turn a profit in recent years. That's the only reason it wasn't sold off. So you tell me, do you not think corporate already knows that it's okay to continue feeding this place crap and making them like it? If some place remains in the black, why change things? Also, God hates SFA. That's why. How are they feeding us crap?
  10. I'm not trying to make assumptions, but when people see the commercial for a new ride for this park, they are going to slam the parking lots and the park is going to be just like it was when we received Two-Face, Joker's Jinx, Superman and Batwing. And that means opening day the park is slammed with people. Lines for the other rides will probably be rather short and everyone will be at the new one. Sense this is the first coaster we have had since 2001, it will probably get it's own store and everything.
  11. That's exactly what I was thinking. New trains are an easy perk they can thrown in with a relocated ride. I think it's going to be a decent ride to tie us over until our next attraction. Sense there trains sit 4 people wide, the line should move quick with a fast ride team.
  12. Ohhh, okay. That's better than nothing. If they give the ride new restraints, won't it make it smoother? Second, is it possible that they could make two exits to this attraction? One that leads back out into the Pirate area and another that leads back into the former Thomas Town themed area? That way you would't always have to walk around, just to see something that is right behind you. Restraints don't make the ride rough. If they do change the restraints to something softer, then sure, it would make the ride a bit better. But Iron Wolf needs wheel adjustments or something to make the overall layout smoother. And I'm guessing by how Chang got rougher when turned into Green Lantern, I doubt Iron Wolf would get any smoother. Wow, I never knew Chang got rougher. Well, I guess that says it. Now on to the next. Is it likely for SFA to put Iron Wolf in Skull Mountain's spot? Or will Skull Mountain become a un-used area like Two-Face's land is? Here is the only reason I ask that. If they aren't going to give us a new coaster in 2013, they could use Skull Mountain's spot for another type of water attraction. Other than Two-Face's old spot, they could put Iron Wolf in Gotham.
  13. Ohhh, okay. That's better than nothing. If they give the ride new restraints, won't it make it smoother? Second, is it possible that they could make two exits to this attraction?

  14. So are we getting a Green Lantern clone? Or is it still up for debate?
  15. Agreed. Let's talk about Fright Fest. How many of you think the park could pull off a huge outdoor maze using the water park area? I was thinking something along the lines of Captain Black Beard at Kings Dominion. An opened aired haunted maze with a pirate theme with tones of creatures lurking around. Given the fact it would cover a huge section of the water park, it would probably take the average person at least 12 minutes or longer to get threw. Good or bad idea?
