Hopefully corona doesn't derail this too much, though it's probably too far through the process to cancel now anyway

It will always be MUCH cheaper to cancel a project that is only at an earlier stage of design and planning than it would be to move forward with the project.

 

At this point, unless a ride is 1/2 to 3/4 of the way completed, I would assume everything is either cancelled or significantly delayed until all these theme park companies know how this virus is going to affect attendance moving forward.

 

Don't forget... even Disney let a partially completed Disney World resort project sit dormant for a decade after 9/11.

I live all the way on the East Coast, but I still want to come visit after the Canola Virus is over. Except there's no way in hell you'll be seeing me do X2.

 

I plan to! One trip I had to cancel can't be done a later date, so I got a free flight to use basically and was thinking of CA later this year. Why not X2? If you haven't, gotta least give it a try! I still am not sure quite how I feel about it, but it's an experience. I did greatly prefer the S&S free spin though.

 

Good point Robb, a downer to think about but we do have to prepare for that possibility.

To the chagrin of many all these parks are "corporations" even the small family ones we love. They aint charities run for us lol (though I wish!)

Inside seat, sit towards the front, and you will enjoy the ride. I prefer the stair side. It is awesome. I have almost 150 laps on it, and I pretty much just sit in the very front or very back. It is in my Top 5. I highly recommend it!

It seems that every time official documents are leaked, there are still people who yell, “the plans are fake!” When’s the last plans like these were found that didn’t turn out to be 100% accurate?

 

Orion, Candemonium, Valravn, Mystic Timbers... I suppose there will always be those who live in denial.

Looks like there may be a small wave turn tacked on at the end leading into the brakes. Hope this happens, although as others have stated I won't be surprised if it's delayed or canceled.

People still think COVID-19 is fake.. soo....

 

I find this interesting. Obviously plans like this are done well in advance, but I am curious to see if this actually happens in 2021 or gets pushed back to 2022 due to circumstances with the COVID-19.

What are the odds they reuse the Green Lantern name?

 

I'd say they aren't lazy enough to do that, but Six Flags Over Texas just replaced an Aquaman ride with an Aquaman ride. And they did keep the Green Lantern sign up as of my visit in December.

I'd love for this to be named Green Lantern: Second Flight, but we can't rule out them literally reusing Green Lantern: First Flight since Six Flags Over Texas transferred the Harley Quinn Spinsanity name from their troika to their tourbillion one offseason.

^I think it is entirely possible for them to re-use Green Lantern: First Flight. I think the Joker is also a possible theme.

 

But yeah, SFMM couldn't even open WCR before the end of the year. Given this pandemic, I would be extremely shocked if this new coaster opens by summer 2021.

Unlike WCR, they don't need to demo an entire area of the park for this attraction. All the electrical, station, and queue is already in place, leftovers from Green Lantern.

 

 

If they move forward with this, I see it going up extremely quick. Look how fast Jersey Devil is being built.

This looks like the best Raptor concept yet and I have to agree with the video that if it's DC it'll really tie in the area well. It's placement is a lot better than SFGAdv for sure. A Joker theme would definitely make a lot of sense, and if it's something like purple track/green supports I don't think it will clash much with Riddler.

 

However, I'm sure it will get built eventually, but I could really care less if it gets delayed. If there's talk of Magic Mountain getting their new addition postponed, then there's no way in hell my home park is getting a new coaster in 2021 ... it's not going to hurt Magic Mountain to wait another few years for a new coaster after just getting WCR in 2019 2020.

 

Meanwhile, I was told (if all went well) our long wait would be over soon. Of course, that hasn't been the case, so we will have to find out this summer.

With the turn out of the station it will already be longer than Jersey Devil, so might as well make it 5 -10 feet taller and bam you have the tallest, fastest, longest single rail coaster. The perfect fit for their 50th anniversary. Also, I can 100% see this being themed to Joker with the big Joker head on the front of the train just like Discovery Kingdom’s Joker. I think it will be a slam dunk for the park, I just hope it doesn’t get delayed.

 

The one promising thing is Magic Mountain is their flagship park, so if anything new is coming next year it would be to them. With so much unknown right now we will just have to wait and see!
