  1. I just found out that the VIP Joker shirts can used AS A FLASH PASS ALL DAY TODAY!!!
  2. I hope not. The capacity for the Raptor would be terrible for a crowded Fiesta Texas. I'm all for the T-Rex version though. To add to this speculation, you may be right. But I thought they were a lot further in testing the Raptor track than they are now. I wonder: 1. How long does testing take? 2. When will TREX testing start? 3. How long was the Free Fly testing before Six Flags bought it? 4. How long is the track production time? 5. What park is getting WHAT??? Well this prototype existed for more than a year before Batman was built That's the one I'm talking about.

  4. "RMC owner, Fred Grubb, testing out our prototype Raptor train on our single rail test track." Rumblings among the coaster grape vine are that SFFT is getting the New Raptor Coaster, not Knott's. I hope its true. Jeffrey has a way of working his magic. PC Rocky Mountain Construction
  5. Here's some details from the Joker. The Ride officially opens on Saturday May 20th, 2017 Pass Holder Preview Event is Thursday and Friday May 18th and 19th. The Ride has several opportunities to flip and spin. The Green side is more aggressive than the Purple. There is a Single Rider Line. The Queue is interactive with a Joker Cam interacting with the guests in line. Currently there are three trains running, with a forth in the maintenance area.
  6. Look I like beer as much as the next guy, but as someone who frequents a park that serves beer, I could use some updates on your new coaster. I mean, currently you have one of the most mysterious 2018 attractions, and I've been told there is track hidden somewhere on the property. So, can I sees it plwweze.
  7. Would this be for the new Ride at Knott's Berry Farm?
  8. After digging into it a little bit more this looks to be a permit for the themeing (walk ways, lighting, and such) for the area that the Joker sits.
  9. With the rumor that B&M has developed a new design for the stand up trains, could Riddler be the first to get them? "...While I'm sure the track design will remain similar to standard B&M track, our source went on to say that we can expect a slight redesign to the trains, including modification to that annoying bicycle style seat thing that goes between your legs and the addition of new restraints that will incorporate a stand-up version of B&M's new vest style system (as seen on Banshee and all the Wing Coasters), which should cut down on any possible head-banging."
  10. You're kidding right? All they've come up with a is a concept, how could have they failed already? Here's why they've succeeded even with a concept and early ride development. First they are clearly advertising this to small parks that don't have the massive amounts of land to put in a thrill ride. Secondly, with one track, there's less material, and less costs. This is great for parks that don't have huge budgets. This is clearly the first generation, who knows where this will lead. We never thought we'd see a launching wooden coaster, but we have one now. Who's to say this design doesn't eventually evolve into a launch coaster, giving the current small footprint launching coaster manufacturers some competition. This is a win for RMC and a Win for some of the smaller, not as well know amusement parks looking for an economical option to give coaster enthusiasts and General public.
  11. Look at the queues at the other parks. Its going to be on the same level. Multiply TVs, Circus Tent, and Joker Signage.
  12. This is is either Silverwood's rumored track or someone else's. It does seem ironic that RMC posted this the day after Knott's closed Boomerang.
  13. It's weird to see a theme parks discussion thread so quiet, when potentially you maybe getting one of the coolest new rides in 2018. Well, wait, Mean streak first, then what ever RMC has left over for you.
  14. They would probably put in a Superloop instead of a T-Rex. Nope. No Super Loop Going to SFOT. There's one too close to the park at the local flea market. Although there are plenty of similar attractions that could be built in 2018. Remember when people used to say that SFFT would never get a B&M inverted or a B:TR clone because there was one up the road at Sea World? Sure, Trader's Village is slightly closer, but I don't necessarily think that the average park goer thinks about that. Whether an average park goer thinks about it or not, that's coming from park management, not GP.

  16. SFOT does not have soft openings. The park will do a Gold Pass Holder Preview day or days on the 18th or 19th, with the Media Day possibly being the beginning of the week or Wednesday.
  17. Are you not going to go to the park if we say it is busy? Define busy. How does it compared to the definition of crowded? Do you mean is it busy enough that you should get there at rope drop and hit up Riddler first, or is it busy that you need a Flash pass? What amount of time are you use to waiting for a ride? Please elaborate.
  18. The Silver Bullet at Kemah Boardwalk in Texas. The critics hate it because it's so rough, but its exactly what you would expect from a wooden coaster over looking the ocean. It's exactly what a wooden coaster should be, rough, fast, and over all a wild ride that doesn't let up until you hit the break run at the end.
  19. I'm surprised that this discussion thread is so dead right now. IMO you have the second best 2018 Mystery Project next to Mean Streak. And actually probably the most anticipated as we still don't know exactly what is going in. On that note, you have anymore of them construction updates?
