  1. Wow those are really great pictures, you can see the whole scope! And it is really tall looking!
  2. ^A lot of sentences referring to a roller coaster as "she" lol. I've only ever heard that pronoun applied to ships, and maybe some cars. Very odd.
  3. Yay for Elitch Gardens! God knows the Colorado enthusiasts have faced a lot of heartbreak with this park in the past...
  4. A giga (maybe record-breaking) would be cool and seems like something viable given how tightly they can compact them these days. With B&M out, it seems completely possible. Plus there's incentive to beat Knott's to it.
  5. ^Well, Flashback and Pandemonium already have orange supports. But then Flashback is blue and Pandemonium is green. So all three choices would have been bad. Should have come up with a different unused color scheme.
  6. What a cool idea you should tell someone at the park that. They might do it.
  7. Yes that second picture is quite spectacular, thank you for taking it. It's really amazing to me how steep that drop is compared to other hyper coasters, it's a very sharp. Millennium Force for example I think has a much smoother and rounded drop.
  8. I haven't seen anywhere, where exactly is this located in the park? From the preview videos it looks like it's near the boomerang but I can't tell.
  9. Wow sadly I'm familiar with the artist that composed the old Riddler music. I need to get outside more.
  10. But is that area of the park flat? I believe Bizarro would require a pretty even surface to be installed, it might be more likely it ends up in the parking lot.
  11. How about the Vekoma boomerangs? Those started being made in the 80s I think and many are in rough condition these days. And how about Looping Starships? And most Enterprises, Pirate Ships, and Round-Ups are getting old too. I think removing these is mostly due to operating and repair costs as people have said, but I also think to a degree it's due to an advancement of technology. Inverted coasters succeeded suspended coasters, and there are so many new interesting flat rides that companies are selling these days that some of the older common ones like I've listed will lose their appeal as people come to expect a more dynamic experience. Cookie-cutter coasters like all the old double corkscrews, boomerangs, and slcs are being replaced with new cookie cutter models like the euro fighters, zacspins, and the spinning wild mice. At least we can take solace that most of the remaining arrow megaloopers will probably only be removed from their parks to be replaced by something equally cool, like how SUF replaced Shockwave and Green Lantern replaced GASM. I just hope when Loch Ness Monster does finally make it to the scrap pile, it will be because its spot is needed for something new and awesome (and that hopefully has a picturesque interlocking loop over the river).
  12. ^I recall from a looong time ago that Mind Eraser used to have some kind of misting or spraying effect at the bottom of the first drop when it swoops over the pond, is that not there any more?
  13. Wow that seem's like a steep price raise for one ride. But it's a really awesome looking ride. I had to look up what you meant by "kiwi encounter" because it sounded something like this:
  14. I forgot about the Lodge theming, that's a good point. And Darien Lake's best asset is its ability to easily expand being in the middle of nowhere, so I can see an indoor water park getting appended to the existing lodge building.
  15. In my mind I always perceived Boss as the signature ride, I always thought it was the coolest and biggest ride there, but I'm judging this from buzz and photos as I've never been there. I agree the park does desperately need a big huge hunk of metal that you can see the st. louis skyline from the top of. A nice Intimidator style hyper coaster would be perfect. How did this park get passed over by six flags thirteen years ago but Darien Lake managed to get a hyper? It seems like it's in a much larger market.
  16. Hmm when I went to Dorney in 2008 I actually remember thinking it was very well rounded. They've got a great collection of flats, drop towers, thrill rides, kiddie rides, and coasters. The only thing I think they were lacking was a real wooden twister coaster. I guess my demographic and my judgment of the park as a result was more geared toward a family experience at the time.
  17. When I heard snow park I thought they meant they were going to build one of those manufactured ski hills or something. A waterpark built from the ground up is cool but I'm a little disappointed that it won't feature coasters.
  18. I can see a patriotic theme for the park (not necessarily RoS though, unfortunately). The park is already rich with vernacular architecture and landscaping, so an Americana theme throughout would be a simple facelift.
  19. Personally I think SFSL is the most likely recipient were SFGAdv to pack up Bizarro. Great Escape has no space, and SFOT doesn't need it as badly (which I suppose doesn't actually matter to SF). What different does it make if it's used? It's new to Missouri. It's likely in fine condition as most B&Ms are, and it would probably be moderately refurbished were it to move. I don't understand why people have such a problem with used coasters. I look forward to riding Goliath at SFNE this coming spring, since I probably would not have been able to get to SFMM or Silverwood for ten or fifteen years, who knows. It's cool that the ride is being brought to me.
  20. Highly unlikely given how much it would cost to plant a forest, and with absolutely no return on the investment. It would probably increase maintenance costs a ton to do something like that.
  21. I agree, the park has a fair number of teen oriented rides and coasters, and the summer concerts are hugely popular with teens and twenty-somethings in my area (which is a three hour drive). There are definitely more thrills to be found here than in many other similarly sized parks. The reason I like the new logo a lot more is because it's traditional and simple, I think a lot of the small lake-based parks in the northeast have that similar theme. The old in-your-face font and spaghetti coaster background made little sense. It was generic like all the six flags logos are. I think it might be a bit of a stretch to say that they're going to theme the whole park somehow. It's in the middle of a bunch of cornfields and flat as a pancake, unlike Dollywood and SDC's interesting locations. Plus how do you theme ride of steel, which is huge and sits in a big grassy field, to deep woods canada?
  22. That slc looks like something I designed in RCT2 when I was 12. Allowing anyone to ride these suckers is a human rights violation for sure.
  23. Just a note, The Great Escape is not currently flagged but may be easing into it, they have a recently redesigned logo using the six flags font so they may be a beneficiary of a new coaster. Alpine Bobsleds is constantly rumored to be removed, but that spot is pretty small and the park’s rugged terrain seemingly leaves very few large plots of flat land for something as big as Bizarro. But if some other smaller coaster joins the program, I can see it going to TGE as part of a flagging (since they haven’t gotten a large coaster in over a decade).
  24. I agree it is a stupid name and the logo looks shotty. A giant discovery doesn't look anything like a spider, and it doesn't move in a similar way either.
