Six Flags America (SFA) Discussion Thread

p. 337 - New Six Flags Hallowfest information!

Recommended Posts

Even though I doubt Joker's Jinx will be removed in the near future, and I'm still very skeptical about V2 being removed and sent here, an Impulse coaster would be a fitting replacement for a Spaghetti Bowl launch coaster. And in my opinion, it would be an upgrade! Just day dreaming, though.

 

Wtf. No it would not be a fitting replacement for a full circuit inverting coaster. Full Circuit>Shuttle. Never will an intamin impulse be better than a premier spaghetti bowl.

Eh. I don't really think so. I like full circuit coasters more and I think most people would agree. Plus an impulse only takes up a fraction of the land that a spaghetti bowl takes up. I just wish they would figure out how to stop this from happening again. I LOVE these spaghetti bowl coasters. They are so much FUN!

I agree, Joker's Jinx is better than the impulse coasters.

 

Maybe this will force them to go back to the full power launch since the other models don't seem to have this issue.

 

What he said.

 

I will ride JJ again and maybe with shorter wait times now. Get WW up and running and get dining plan squared away (do the scan your card instead of lugging the bottles around and having to cubby them), do that path with a hand-me-down coaster for 2018. I'm good.

 

I'm not sure I could handle a Mako/ InvadR/ Valravn/ Cobras Curse type hype, construction update, and wait process. What Six Flags' coasters do we not already have clones of? I know we wouldn't be getting KK from Great Adventure but what are those other rides? Ideally a 48" coaster.

Let me start a little conspiracy theory. SFA rigged the JJ to stall to get publicity. The park was very full today. More than I've ever seen for spring break. Thank goodness for the two trains.

 

Of course I'm joking, no pun intended, about the theory. Had to put that out there. I know how some take things a LIL to seriously..lol

Yes indeed . . . . but surprised that they didn't bring out the second train for Batwing . . . .

The Premier spaghetti bowl isn't that great unless it's in the dark like Flight of Fear. Not only is the Intamin launch much better but you get a real drop.

If they get they get rid of Jokers Jinx they better have a damn good replacement. The only thing out right now that could fill the gap if they got rid of it would be a Eurofighter or Wing Coaster.

Lest we forget- this is Dorne...err...SFA we're talking about here. I doubt Six Flags is ready to relocate Dare Devil Dive or X-Flight already.

 

Let's be honest: at least Dorney got good relocated coasters.

JJ is back up and running.

 

Construction workers were standing in the rain looking at the spread out pieces of Wonder Woman like people that just unpacked IKEA furniture and laid out all the lettered pieces in piles.

I agree! All three Joker rides have long since been completed and are currently in their testing phase! Meanwhile this Starflyer continues to sit in pieces with no clear progress being made! I know Starflyer's can be put up in relatively short order, but this thing should not still be sitting around disassembled at this late date!

Yeah, spaghetti bowls are good, but definitely prefer the impulse coasters I've been on. Also, Six Flags America doesn't even have a shuttle coaster, so it would fill another important spot in their lineup while still having a launched coaster. I didn't bother responding right away because the full circuit>shuttle comment just broke my brain. Yeah, let's replace all the impulse coasters with kiddie coasters and Pinfari loopers!
