Six Flags America (SFA) Discussion Thread

p. 337 - New Six Flags Hallowfest information!

Recommended Posts

Is there any possibility, and I am admitting a lack of knowledge, that the work done on ROAR could have been tweaking and data collecting for an RMC conversion?

 

Anything like that in the other locations or are the spray paint and wooden markers the tell tale signs?

As far as we know there could be markers and spray paint but we wouldn't know because the layout is far away from public view.

Six Flags America, named for its proximity to our nation's capital, will not be flying the Maryland state flag anymore.

Not complaining, just letting everyone know.

I moved to Maryland in 2000 and one of the perks is that we have one of the best looking flags. Maryland was split state during the civil war and the red and white sections of the flag were used as the flag of those that were sympathetic to the south. The current combination signifies the reunification of north and south. Solidarity.

 

Flying six American flags is perfect. Not an American flag and six trademarked plain colors. Being an American is like being a family member, no matter what your story, for better or worse, if you are a citizen you are American with the rest of us. Controlled by six governments but now American. Six American flags is perfect.

Except today they were only flying 3 flags. 3 Flags, More fun?

I think the benches in front of roar is to stop people from ignoring the sign and continuing to walk to the station (I've seen people do it before). Also, I agree that it's a staffing issue, usually SFA is closed around this time of year during the week due to school, however, since pg county schools do not go back until after Labor Day now, they changed the park hours and operating days.

Actually . . . now all schools in Maryland start after Labor Day this year

Maybe they could only find three flags that were made in America. I think Home Depot has the Christmas decorations out already.

I feel fairly confident in saying that PBR is safe (despite what SFA just posted on their FaceBook page)...

 

You may be right, but no one leaves survey stakes out for months, and puts in a couple of new ones, especially one that has to do with water. Of course we could be getting misled.

Grim Reaper is the bringer of death + he's standing in front of PBR = . . . . Rest In Peace Penguin's Blizzard River (2003-2017) . . . at least that's how I read into it

 

Don't read too much into it becauseits likely that they'll do the same thing with a different ride.

I've got a sneaky suspicion that SFA will troll with us over the next few days... there are several attractions that have been rumored to be closing at SFA recently (PBR was one, ROAR another)... but I have a feeling (if my sources are right) that the attraction closing will surprise some folks (something that many/most people wont have seen coming... but not necessarily a bad surprise).

Is it a ride that people actually ride or nah?

Are you asking if it is a popular attraction? That's a tough question with regards to a park where the vast majority of the attractions are walk-ons...

 

Just tell us what ride you've been told it was.
