  1. It looks like whoever bought Chiller before backed out of the deal. I guess that it was pretty obvious sense its been sitting in storage down the street from the park since it was taken down.




    Could they spilt the sides apart? Like could Robin be sold somewhere and Batman sold to another park? Because I think that would be the best bet for any park looking into it.

  2. Its not that people are unhappy, it's just that I think people are getting bored of the same old Deja Vu colors. I don't see any posts where people are genuinely pissed off about no new paint. You only have two other GIBs in the world that are different colors. So it would have been nice to get a refresh. I think VinTheAttendant brought it up because of the fact that SFNE posted the rendering on their construction blog. If they park didn't say so we would all be confused.


    But hey, it is what it is. The paint in the rendering would definitely, 500%, look better in its area. Like what coasterfreak101 said, the rust orange and silver colors "go" with Crack Axel Canyon.


    Who knows, maybe SFNE says they aren't painting it but they are? It's unlikely but anything is possible.

  3. Some of those screams sounded just like the ones used in Busch Gardens' Cheetah Hunt animation? Maybe the better themed theme parks invented their own personal coaster animation without telling us?


    The same one (or should I say person) they have been using for years. Seriously, Keith is awesome. Plus every time he makes a new video they just become better and better.


  4. I agree about Roa's Rapids! We got in early as well and had the place to ourselves for a while. We got everything done and then when we were on the racers the parking lot was filling up before our eyes. Thats when we decided to just spend the whole rest of the day in the rapids. They are so much fun.


    Great pictures, like everyone else has said. Aquatica is definitely a different type of water park. I loved it though.

  5. Yeah their guest relations office is definitely not the best.


    Midnight Mansion is $8.

    Wicked Woods is $7.

    Slayers Lair (the new one in Hurricane Harbor) is $7.

    You can get a combo pass for all them for $15 which IMO is a steal.

    VIP is $30.


    Plus there is a free one directly in front of Twister in the two big tents.


    From what I've seen (haven't had a chance to visit FF myself this year, yet) Wicked Woods is rated the best. Then its a toss up between MM and SL. As always, I think its just a matter of luck. Sometimes you can go through and get a great experience because you got lucky when it was fully staffed. Other times you go through during a shift change. It really depends.


    Wicked Woods tends to be about 10 minutes, it is very long. I've heard that Slayers Lair is extremely short, but has some pretty great animatronics. Midnight Mansion is also short (it takes up Houdini's building, plus its old, outside queue)

  6. SF did say that the chances of any SLC or boomerang getting the new trains are slim to none. Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't SF and Vekoma still mad at each other because of the whole Deja Vu situation. I think thats why SFNE went to Premier for a new train instead.


    Oh and I found a cell phone video of the ACE Q&A last weekend, some interesting things are said. They talk about the plans for the new finger print scanning system. Plus they answer what we all have been wondering, "Why put two boomerangs next to each other?" Lol, they even know that everyone is wondering it.



  7. This morning I heard a radio ad for the park. It was advertising buy three season passes, get one free and free parking if you processed the passes before the en of the season. Not a bad deal. What was interesting was the promo for their new coaster:


    "Goliath, the Dive Coaster"


    Yep, apparently a giant inveryed boomerang is now a dive coaster.


    Whoa whoa whoa whoa wait a second....I thought Goliath was a hyper coaster? So now you're telling me that its a dive coaster! AMAZING!


    False advertising #FTW!

  8. Well, lets be fair here. The Website should go online on the 14th, these are just screenshots of something in progress(which I am sure TPR is doing aswell).


    If they put it online like this, you can blast them all your want for mistakes, otherwise sit back, relax and be happy that this years Fright Fest should be a lot better compared to years past


    All of the other parks Fright Fest sites have the same silly mistakes. They just made one description for each ride and copied and pasted it for the other parks.

  9. According to http://frightfest.sixflags.com, We should be getting info about Fright Fest on the 14. Oh yeah the big spider on Colossus is up now,


    I had gotten access to it yesterday, all I remember is there is something with a Chupacabra and that Goliath is become Goliath Witch. I should've taken some screen shots.



    Tried again. Success.
