Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Recommended Posts

This wouldn't surprise me, despite the slow opening of Crazanity. From what I hear 2019 is a larger project than 2018 including the removal of some of those buildings in Cyclone Bay. An early start makes sense in this case.

If I were a betting man, now that SpinZanity, scratch that, CraZanity is finally vertical, we're probably around a month away from opening (give or take). So we're finally in the home stretch...

 

Also, everyone get their last rides on Apocalypse tomorrow as the area back there is getting shut down on Monday to allow crews to work on project 2019. Originally it was slated for the 1st, but it was decided to keep the area open over the weekend.

 

Anyhow, it's an exciting time for the park as the 2019 coaster sounds like it's going to be huge.

How true is the statement that the area will close on Monday since the rumor had dies down a bit?

I'm definitely getting excited for 2019, but I also think it's important to keep manageable expectations. We all remember what happened with Full Throttle.

 

Also, if 2019 indeed brings a coaster, I can't help but recognize that their 20th coaster could've been added in the year 2020 with all of the extra marketing that would bring. But then again, I'm not gonna complain about a coaster coming one year sooner! lol

If it's a Six Flags park, I think expectations should always be "managed" lol. We all know that they can only work within certain financial restraints (which really isn't the park's fault).

 

Still, I think people were pretty caught off guard by Wonder Woman so...

Hey hey hey... don’t be mean to YOLO! Guests and enthusiasts alike love it! Also kinda biased as a Throttle ride op haha.

 

But Wow, checking seats and grouping into rows at the same time is not easy.

I kind of hope it's not a racer...i feel that doubles the price per foot of track, tho it's probably not quite double.... my guess (hope) is a T-rex with stupid amounts of ejector air, long enough to feel like a complete ride and of course Giga but that parts a pipe dream unless it were like Xcelerator with a even more complete 2nd half.. we can all dream, can't we?

Yeah the only thing disappointing about that coaster for me was the promotion. Sure, it's short, but a pretty unique coaster and always fun.

My husband got that survey, and we both thought that all the names listed were pretty much terrible. Between that and that other survey where they showed that bizarre video of a proposed extension of Superman, I practically wonder if they're just trolling?

I also like how Viper is a choice too.

 

I'm hoping the new ride isn't going to be a replacement for Viper since it's actually a good coaster. If anything, I'd love for them to get the Vekoma trains like SFOG did with Blue Hawk.

That's what I think they should do for these Arrow loopers; instead of junking them . . . get those kind of trains

I don't think it would make much of a difference. The primary cause of the roughness with old Arrow Loopers is the track. It is notorious for warping, and there's basically nothing you can do about it. New trains would be nice for a little while, but ultimately it would still be rough. The only Arrow I've seen that hasn't gone bad is Canyon Blaster in Vegas, perhaps because it's indoors.

 

If you watch the Arrow documentary (the whole thing is on youtube) they go into more detail about the issue.

Forgot they filmed an episode of Lucifer at the park. Just came up on my DVR. Some really nice photography of the park actually. Couldn't help bursting out laughing when they refer to Viper as "the scariest ride in the park", and after the characters literally walked there from X2. Weird how TV and movies always gravitate towards Arrows. I saw the movie Action Point last night where Johnny Knoxville runs his own theme park, and the Six Flags stand-in had one coaster which was an Arrow Looper. The new vacation movie featured an Arrow looper. Wonder if there's something that makes the track photogenic or something.
They meant to say it was the most painful ride in the park. Production didn't catch the error...

One would hope. SFMM is due for a new coaster. It has been since 2015. Going to 365 days is setting the table to spend a little more for a new attraction. Hopefully it hasn't added a bunch of expenses and prevents the addition.

Viper isn't going anywhere right now. They're going to bring it down to do an entire electrical/PLC system overhaul once Revolution is back up. So it's safe to say that Viper is safe in 2019. Beyond then, who knows. It wouldn't make much sense to do an expensive ride systems overhaul and then tear out that same ride two years later, but this is the same park that has departments fight each other and not communicate at all so... Weirder things have happened.

 

But for now Viper is safe.

Based on this last survey with the racing names and the previous survey about an extension of Superman maybe they are linked as Superman has the 2 tracks already to race. Are they allowed to dispatch both trains at the same exact time?

What’s going on with Revolution? It has been down for quite a while.
