Six Flags America (SFA) Discussion Thread

p. 337 - New Six Flags Hallowfest information!

Recommended Posts

Aw man. I know a lot of people hate this ride but it's my favorite coaster Hopefully they won't remove it all together

 

You haven't been to a lot of parks (read: anywhere other than SFA) have you?

I know I'm in the minority, but I really enjoyed the ride when it was at SFGAm (and B&M Stand-Ups in general). I'm visiting SFA later this month, and was looking forward to getting a spin or two on it, so this is a bit of a bummer.

I really doubt this means they're closing Apocalypse next week. That tiny sign is hardly a closing announcement...

it was the ONE open coaster I did not ride.

 

and I did Roar and Mind Eraser for goodness sakes!

 

yep, refused to get on it, as I had ridden Georgia Scorcher at SFoG a few days prior, and loved that, so why leave a bad taste from this POS.

 

so if it goes floorless? more power to em.

 

I was just happy that Rodeo Breakdance ran in both directions for us when we were there. Still not super forceful (even the sizzler ran a better program), but at least the operator went both directions for us (the prior cycle only went one way).

I can't be the only one expecting this to just be another Fright Fest maze teaser? We already know SF is announcing new stuff on 8/30, so I doubt SFA will break form and announce their 2019 early. Plus, last year Great Adventure's Fright Fest announcements happened on the day of the eclipse so it isn't unprecedented for it to happen earlier.

I hope it's still open in a couple weeks when I'm there, but I'm all for floorless conversions to better the quality of a ride. I think standups have long since run their course and should be phased out, in my opinion. Vortex/Patriot at CGA is probably the closest comparison, and that's extremely fun as a smaller, more compact floorless. I've been wondering if/when we start to see Six Flags convert their standups also. It's only a matter of time I'd guess, but makes an interesting decision for the parks that already have a traditional floorless in their lineup.

This is the post from this weekend... "voices from the past are speaking to you. Could it be Deja Vu?"

 

Possibly shuffle of Goliath at Six Flags New England to here? That was called Deja Vu in the past, correct? Also, that would bring back a inverted boomerang which I miss. Loved Two Face.

I think the Deja Vu comment is them saying that the track is familiar, but at the same time, different.

My bold prediction: apocalypse gets removed for a rmc raptor or s&s 4d. (A raptor would be the best option and would make it the 2nd best coaster in the park, but I don’t see the operations going well. This park deserves more than a 4d but something is better than nothing.)

 

More likely possibilities:

 

-apocalypse transformed into a floorlesss (I hope not, the fire and mist effect has been off for 2 years and it will still be a headbanger)

 

-Apocalypse removed for a skywarp

 

-RMC Roar (everyone wants this to happen but it would’ve closed by now)

 

After the campaign SFA did for wahoo river, I won’t be getting my hopes up again.

^ Six Flags usually does a daily admission promotion with Coke. By then they should have their Flash Sale for 2019 Season Passes which include the rest of 2018. If you plan to go again to any Six Flags park this year or next year, that's the best deal.

 

As for the 2019 attraction, the teasers make me think Apocalypse is done in its current form. From the sign posted by the ride and the recent history of B&M stand-ups, I'm guessing a floorless train may be on the way.

General question. Are there any discounts or coupons for Six Flags America? I am planning to go on September 8th.

 

They always do their flash sale over Labor Day weekend which is the best sale of the year. Buy your tickets then. Consider a season pass / membership. They whore them out at such ludicrous prices that it’s almost insane not to have one.
