Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Recommended Posts

I would expect the area around the Slaughterhouse to be spruced up with landscaping, but as far as a whole new themed area, I would be completely suprised. As it is, that area by Batman is one of the most unused parts of the park, and for the majority of people it will feel like a "new" themed area.

Looking at the end of the video, it looks like Kids coaster will open first, then Superman, and finally Green Lantern. Perhaps KC will open in Feb. Superman April. And GL May.

 

Who knows. Maybe they'll build KC in 1 day.

 

What part of the video told you that? I must have missed it.

Look at the end where it shows them in bold print.

After going on the Road to Cedar Point TPR trip next August and knocking out some of the big East Coast and Midwest Parks...My next trip has to be to get out to the West Coast and get to SFMM! The park looks AMAZING

Well, if you can hold off a year, it looks like we may do another West Coast Trip in 2012....and with what looks like might be going on at knotts for 2012...you might want to wait a year!

I don't think that was written to mean what order the rides were going to open!

 

Sheesh!

^ This "new" themed area could be a Gotham City makeover in the works. It wouldn't be a bad idea to freshen up that area a bit---perhaps even merge the so called Movie District (where Riddler's Revenge is) with Gotham City and create a huge superhero area. With Tidal Wave's rumored demise in the near future, that area and the former Freefall area could open up some possibilities with the available space there.

I was at SFMM last weekend, and although I didn't take a picture, I did notice that the "GOTHAM CITY" sign has been removed from the entrance to the Gotham City Backlot. Obviously I don't know why the sign was missing, but this would seem to only confirm a new theme to me...of course I'm only speculating here...

 

But I would love to see a DC Comics area made here using Batman, Riddler, and Green Lantern! Too bad Superman's up on top of Samurai Summit, because it would only make sense to have Superman in a DC Comics themed area (if in fact that were to happen).

Actually, a thought just occured to me...Tidal Wave could be renamed as Aquaman!

^ If Tidal Wave is removed, they'll theme the area as Davey Jones' L.o.c.k.e.r (without the periods, of course. ). Funny, I was at SFMM last month and could have sworn I saw the Gotham City Backlot sign still there. But maybe I've become so accustomed to seeing it that I assumed it was there when in fact it was gone.

The way licensing works you can't just go around slapping new signs and character names on the rides. I've just recently finished work on a project with DC Comics and everything you do has to be approved by them.

 

And sure, they *could* look into it, but I'm not even sure DC would approve the license for a 21-year old, nearly taken out, sorta beat-up water ride. It would probably need quite a re-theme for that to happen.

 

Here's something else that no one has mentioned from the video - no mention of the Percy coaster.

I know. I was actually just joking about it

They mentioned Canyon Blaster and Wile E. Coyote for 1999, with the later being a former name of Percy. Maybe they plan on rebranding it back (along with the rest of that area).

I noticed nothing was said about Percy and wondered about it, but figured that since it is a many-times renamed/rethemed coaster, and not a new one, no mention of it was necessary.

 

Which made me think about 2001 when the park supposedly got "three" new coasters. Deja Vu and X were new, but Goliath Jr. was just the third theme for that old Bradley and Kaye kiddie coaster (which supposedly dates back to 1947---I read somewhere that Newhall Land & Farming and SeaWorld bought it from an old L.A. area kiddieland when the park was being built).

So, I changed my plans and will be going on Sunday instead of Friday... (Posted it earlier. Not that I expect you to remember that!)

 

How have the crowds been lately? Are Sundays bad?

 

I've considered getting a Flash Pass. But I've heard that they need your passport or something similar until you return it. Is that... true?

 

I know that Superman will be closed for sure, how about the other coasters?

 

Sorry for bombarding you all with questions.

I went Sunday, the week before last; it was a great day with over 20 rides (combined).

 

We got there at 10:45 and went the backwards route (opposite of the GP).. headed to Goliath/Colossus/Scream/Batman/Riddler. Then headed back toward the front to Viper/Revolution/Ninja/X2. Then back around to Terminator, and a repeat of Batman/Riddler/etc.

 

Unless you get there before opening, do not go to X2.. the line will be huge. When we went on X2 in the afternoon, we rode twice without going through the queue again, after waiting only five minutes to ride it anyway.

 

If you can search my username for my trip report, it'll have more info.

 

But don't worry about a flashpass. We were done by six and ended up leaving to grab dinner.

 

We got EVERY coaster in.. (except for kiddie rides..).
