Six Flags America (SFA) Discussion Thread

p. 337 - New Six Flags Hallowfest information!

Recommended Posts

The park doesn't need a vertical drop slide. Bonsai Pipelines fit that role fine.

I disagree. I was thinking one of the non-capsule ones like the Blizzard Beach one. They seem to be water park staes and are always popular with guests.

 

If it's any consolation, the park had originally proposed building a tower complex that had two vertical drop (non-capsule drop) slides along with mat racing slides in the spot where Bonzai Pipelines is now. Now that Bonzai Pipelines is there, not sure what will happen with those plans..

I could see this still being a possibility but probably not as likely.

Since I'm making my first trip to SFA since 2003, what order of things should I do? It will be Labor Day, so it could get busy. I am planning to get a SF pass (higher end) for 2018 and use it this season. Is there any early ride times or early admission?

Gold Pass has early entry and ERT on September 3rd.

More and more I'm wondering . . . . so SFA personnel read the board here? (not a complaint, just that what we speculate regarding what's leaving after this season

magically appears on their FB page, etc).

 

That being said . . . . A water coaster or mat racer would fit very well where Castaway Creek is now

I would make the assumption that most parks do read our forum from time to time if not frequently. Especially considering the fact that we do often Tweet out links to reports made on our forum and we will regularly get back notifications like this one we just got right now:

^FYI: Most parks have social media personnel who check out forums that have a decent following (not just TPR). Some even join and post regularly....even higher ups than them.

 

Like Tony Clark from Cedar Point has a TPR account and will on rare occasions post in that thread.

You're posting on/reading what is arguably the most popular theme park forum in existence. Always assume parks management and employees lurk here. Occasionally they will even will post (Tony from CP, Paula from Holiday World, etc).

 

If you worked in marketing or management @ a park, wouldn't you want to stay up to date on what people thought of your business? Especially a site that's main purpose is theme park reviews?

To be fair I often end up having to apologize to many of those park management people for some of the things that are written on the forum. Since a lot of times what is written on the forums looks very much like this...

By the way, this is what I was talking about every time I mentioned Mat Blaster [youtu_be]

You go so slow on the up hill part. That is what I do not like about the traditional uphill slides. Now the newer ones like Fiesta Texas has is awesome. There are no slow parts.

 

Even though I know Zoomazon Falls is really old they are my favorite water slides in the park. They are so fast! Last time I went I flipped over my stomach without even trying. I remember when you it was Adventure World and you use tubes on them. You would almost fly off.

 

If a update is coming to the water park.... can we please fix the really sad looking pool/lazy river area?
