Six Flags Darien Lake (SFDL) Discussion Thread in Theme Parks, Roller Coasters, & Donkeys! Posted May 10, 2021 Y'all should probably wait until opening day. There's a lot of assumptions going around and it's safe to assume Six Flags doesn't want moneypit rides. Don't forget Giant Wheel had that "little" incident a few years back. It's not like a 180+ foot ferris wheel from the 80s is gonna run like peaches and cream, especially with the potential cost to refurb ancient motors.
