That's an easy challenge, I actually really enjoy Mind Eraser in the front.

 

Front row of Roar with your eyes open? I could see that on Superman because the height scares people but Roar, really? They need better people running their social sites. They missed the mark when trying to fool everyone with Wahoo River and the crypt keeper pics too.

Was down in MD visiting friends this weekend and after making a quick stop at American Dream on Friday on the ride down (threw a couple pictures on FB), I started the ride back with a stop at American

Wow. It is hilarious that Six Flags America is opening a whole month early, and BGW is now year-round, and Kings Dominion isn't opening until MAY? I think I'll join Coasterbill in laughing at Ced

Well I was there this past Sunday; temperatures were about 45 degrees which kept the crowds minimal. Everything (except for Ragin Cajun) was one train operations. Early in the season, I was surpr

I agree that was way too much teasing for what was ultimately a slightly larger improved lazy river.

I'm subscribed to almost all of the newsletters and it's a literal cut-and-paste job. Every single one has the same copy, just with different coasters swapped out. I'd be surprised if it's anything to do with SFA specifically, it probably all comes straight from corporate HQ.

^^ SFMM sent out that same notice, word for word, except the challenge is to ride Tatsu seven times in a row and ride Twisted Colossus in front without closing your eyes.

 

SFOT sent out the same email too. Except 7 times on Batma , and Titan with eyes open.

 

Yeah, not sure I could handle Mind Eraser or Batman 7 times in a row. I'll take SFMM's challenge instead!!

I too really like Mind Eraser in the front. I'm one of the few who do not get torn up by the ride.

Mt last Mind Eraser ride was in the back and much more comfortable than the front. And actually the forces -- not necessarily the shaking like a nervous little dog -- are mildest in the middle, for the same reason enthusiasts usually want the ends on most coasters. Of course my last ride was also with a hat and hood in December, so more comfortable than any ride in the summer.

 

The woodies are OK anywhere but a wheel seat. Don't be lulled into false security on your first Wild One ride though, it lives up to its name about 2/3ths of the way through. A couple months ago someone said front and back on Superman are about the same. Yeah right. I rode back when they had VR in the back and it was a good thing I knew the layout. It can throw you into the lap bar recovering from the hills, especially the one between the helices.

 

I really like Renegade Rapids there too. Some actual rapids and you don't get hardly wet unless someone pays to soak you with the water cannons. I've seen better raft rides on this forum, but it's different than most.

I wonder what they could be trying to tell us. The logo is from a pontiac firebird and the calendar has august 16th (National Rollercoaster day) circled. I'm gonna go with the wild guess of a Brand new coaster with a firebird themed train.

I don't think it's got anything to do with Iron Eagle. It appears to be the 1968 Pontiac Firebird embelem (example below)and it appears to be on the gas tank of the car.

I'm going with the wild guess of... no.

 

Idk... I just don't see SFA getting a new coaster right now. Do they need one? HECK YES!!! Do I foresee it happening, no.

 

That being said... If I am wrong, and it is going to be a coaster... I foresee it being an RMC conversion of Roar with a Firebird theme?

^ I politely disagree. I believe they are putting the skywarps in parks with minimal space and space is no issue at SFA.

 

Skywarps are going to be everywhere, it has nothing to do it with space. It's that they cost 2M and SF can call them a coaster. They will be the new superloop of the chain. With 3 variants hopefully SF mixes up the models.

 

The small indy parks should jump all over buyung Skywarps, as well as RMC Raptors. Getting both over a 3 or so year period would be a nice 1,2 for places like KK, HW, Compounce, etc..

Can anyone link me to this ride name survey? I haven’t gotten any surveys despite telling SF to send me all their notices they have.

If you put your real age in that may be a factor because I don't get them either but here's the link:https://feedback.sixflags.com/advisorypanel/startsurvey.aspx?s=heroes&cid=%%cid%%&e=sjackson%40son.umaryland.edu&utm_source=surveyemails&utm_medium=email&utm_content=subscriber_id:&utm_campaign=2018-01%20Heroes%20and%20Villains%20Survey%20-%20Wave%209

^Thanks! Interesting that they included Marvel characters, I wonder what they're trying to achieve with that since SF has never mad a marvel-character themed ride (to my knowledge). Plus, I'd assume that obtaining the rights to use a Marvel character would be pretty expensive.
