SFGAd just announced a Single Rider line for Jersey Devil... do we think WW:FOC will now have one?

For the first 6 months, then they'll get rid of it.

Go ahead and say it.  It's ugly as shit lol.

It's a war crime.  Tatsu, presented by Nickelodeon Slime Time Live.

I also noticed that Medusa's repaint is going to be bright orange and green too.  I think American Dream Mall had a crap load of Nick Universe paint left over and sold it to Six Flags for cheap.

Well that’s subjective. But if that’s the case then someone better tell Universal that their marketing would be more effective for Velocicoaster if the track was neon orange 🙃

^^^That was actually a big thing for Cedar Fair back in the 90s when I worked for them (at CP).  Nothing painted black; no ominous or scary names, and no blood.  We used to joke that CP wanted to paint everything blue. 

I think it's best to paint a ride whatever might make sense or look good for it's name or something...  So happy we have our ominous/disco-y Demon at SF Great America.  I can't imagine it painted anything other than black. 

At some point in the last 2 decades, Six Flags started really barfing out some ugly coaster color schemes.  Or perhaps it was before that even.  I was an intern at SFOT in 1995 and the awesome Shock Wave was painted with white loops and track, tan supports and Pepto Bismol® pink on the interior of the loops.  It's never had a good, happy color scheme since.  Talk about a ride that deserves some respect - get on those classic trains while you still can.

Back to Tatsu, it looks ok from some angles.  I was  hoping they would keep the red rails... but oh well.  It's one of 2 coasters that actually scares me.  The other is X2 (which I especially love).  The "surprise you're 500 feet up" views really scare the heck out of me, in a good way.

Meh, I don't hate Tatsu's new colors. The old colors were definitely better, but even the new colors look better than the sun-faded, neglected paint that they replaced.

That color scheme is the most Six Flags thing in that it's devoid of anything resembling taste.

Some things never change...

I  honestly, really think, that the coaster-riding public, doesn't give a flying f about the "color scheme" etc. They want a thrilling coaster ride. Period. IMhO.

Any color would've looked better than the faded mess Tatsu looked like before 

 

 

 

Agreed, I don't really care what colors they paint the coasters, I'm just glad they are painting them!

Anyone want to bet that Wonder Woman doesn’t open until September or later? I saw a drone construction update and the state of the construction site is appalling as we head into April. The entirety of whatever their doing in DC Universe is nothing but a dirt lot, the ride construction started and then halted completely. I just don’t get why SFMM can’t get their construction projects together. Look at fiesta Texas, Dr Diabolical is nearly finished with vertical construction!
