  1. I am seeing almost all the other SF parks making their announcements hoping SFDL has at least something coming this year. They seem to be spending a good amount of money this year, so I am hopeful
  2. Has anyone been to the park this year yet? Wondering if any of the small upgrades I keep hearing about at other SF parks happened at DL?
  3. I have a feeling it's just that first turnaround. If you take a look, there is new wood to the left of the track. I don't see it anywhere else in that picture
  4. Apparently Big Kahuna's conveyor belt broke and fried the motor, so either that needs to be replaced or the entire slide needs to go. Not sure what's up with Heave Ho, but it's such a small footprint that you couldn't put much in that spot. The Closed for the season post is very weird considering the park doesn't open until May
  5. ^agreed 100%. A good classic wooden coaster is a thing of beauty. Companies like GCI were making these wooden coasters with highly banked twisting drops and lateral movements. The just didn't hold up. Give me The Comet at Great Escape or Blue Streak at CP over those any day
  6. Sorry, it's hard to tell. I just saw the turn. Hopefully they show updates soon or at least say what parts are getting the new track
  7. Looks like they are at least doing the first main turnaround at the very least. I hope it's not just that turn but a few other rough spots too
  8. ^ I agree. Having two dead ends in a similar spot is silly. I wonder if they can't put a path so close to the Boomerang or something.
  9. Screamscape is reporting more Titan Track for Predator in 2023. If they did that and got second trains for ME, ROS and Motocoaster I would be happy with those additions
  10. I can tell you that the park is closed on Tuesdays and closes for the day at 7 except for Friday and Saturday when they close at 9. Usually as long as there is not a concert it's not so busy
  11. Did anyone go to the park this weekend to see if Predator is any better with the Titan Track on the death turn?
  12. I was looking around the SFDL website the other day and I got a pop up asking me to join the six flags advisory panel. They send out surveys about the park and future and current plans. It seemed like a great opportunity to have a say in future rides and other things that happen
  13. A few rides or coasters being painted would be nice. It would also be nice to see grizzly run fully removed if they are not bringing it back.
  14. Screamscape is reporting that Six Flags corporate is going through some restructuring where the park presidents will report to the CEO and have more say in yearly park improvements. With that being said, if you were the park president, what would you add? I would RMC predator add a true family coaster, an interactive dark ride and a frisbee/discovery. Obviously these would be over 5-6 years, but all things the park could use.
  15. That is a pretty sad list of rides open. I wonder if the did some kind of rotation where ops went to other rides later in the day or this was just how they went. I know staffing is a huge issue everywhere, and always has been at DL after Labor Day, but that list of rides is not really worth going for
  16. I was at the park today and have to say that it seemed extremely busy. Maybe because it was a Saturday or a concert day, but it was busy. It does however look like the park is terribly understaffed. Lines for food were 45 minutes or more. They also appeared to have some rides on a rotation program where certain flat rides were not open but then opened an hour or so later.
  17. I am happy to see Pirate back up and running. It's a good ride and the setting over the lake is awesome
  18. ^ Yes that is correct, but also remember that SFDL draws people from Canada that don't want to wait in the lines at CW. I think it will be an average year with average wait times and crowds
  19. I know this will sound crazy, but the size of the plot of land Grizzly Run sits on could allow them to create a new area where they can add into for a long time. Plus they can tie Mind Eraser in with that area too. I am going out on a limb to say Gotham City with a S&s Free Spin Batman and new restraints and paint for ME to convert to Riddler
  20. I think it's awesome that they are finally going to do something with Predator. It needs it badly. The problem I see is in the cost vs what they get in return. If they do the whole thing they should go big like RMC so they can advertise a whole new ride experience. My guess is that they will do the rough spots like the 540 turn and a few of the other valleys that are bad. I would actually love to see this as I think the overall layout is really good. If you can smooth out the rough spots it may become very rideable again
  21. Are you talking about Six Flags Darien Lake? Yes. That is the park this thread is about...
  22. I hope the park used this season to take care of the small things while the park was closed. Things like paint and blacktop repair don't cost a ton and are difficult to do with people in the park.
  23. Haymaker is correct. The campgrounds have been open, which is what I was referring to. With the campground being open, they did bring in money that is almost 100% profit
  24. It appears that SF is making their 2021 announcements on Thursday. Does anyone think we get anything other than the slide we were supposed to get this year? I would like another flat ride for next year, but am not holding out hope considering that the park did not technically open this year
