Six Flags America (SFA) Discussion Thread

p. 337 - New Six Flags Hallowfest information!

Recommended Posts

Just finished a fun day at SFA! Probably going to put up a TR at some point, but I’ll post the key takeaways here for now:

 

Firebird is fun in the back and a great improvement over Apocalypse

Batwing is still down

Everything was running two trains (even ME)

Wild One is perhaps a bit bumpier than usual, but is hauling like mad

New bathrooms are open, men’s room has two urinals, two stalls, two sinks (didn’t check women’s obviously)

Wild One, Roar, and Firebird each had technical difficulties that required both trains be emptied and cycled a couple times before resuming operations

Significant crowds, but line still manageable

Red train seems to be running best on Superman, but I only tried the Blue train in 2nd row whereas I rode the red train in 1st row

Tip: The fries and onion rings at Jonny Rockets are snacks on the dining pass, and have good portion sizes.

 

 

Also, the trick to minimize sliding on RC (and I assume other spinning mice) is to put your feet on the metal diagonal footrest thingy in the front of the car, and press hard on it with your feet (like your trying to push it with your legs). I’ve found that very helpful.

Late to the party, but nice pics from the media day (and the 5/17 update). Firebird looks fantastic! I greatly enjoyed this coaster as a Stand Up at SFGAm, and was happy to catch a few last laps on Apocalypse before it closed in 2018. I think it has a great layout, so I'm glad it got the refurb rather than getting scrapped. Hopefully it'll stick around for many years to come.

Wahoo River has gotten some tropical trees added as well as another bridge to get over to the pool.

 

NEW TREES!!!!!!

 

We not only got the bathroom but even more trees? This is getting to be too good to be real.

There is also a new R&B show that they just added to the show lineup. It is located in the Grande Theatre!

 

 

I like that they have Grande Theater shows in the summer Gives me something to do if it done get too hot (Maryland summers can sometimes get brutal).

Not sure if/when I’ll submit a full TR of my trip last weekend, but for now, check out this video I made on SFA’s latest addition:

 

YES!

 

My favorite part is the people coming out of the ladies room like WTF?

 

I think the SFA Superman bathroom credit is on par with the Knoebels Super 8 credit.

Being on par with anything at Knoebels at all is always a plus!

 

I don't think it is possible that anything at Six Flags America would ever be on par with Knoebels... Anything.

I hope Batwing is operational when I visit next month, but I won't hold my breath. I only got one ride on it during my last visit in 2016, and with Firehawk now gone I would like to take advantage of riding this before they all go extinct. I enjoy the Vekoma Flyers quite a bit aside from Nighthawk's death corkscrews...

Looks like some work is going to start where Dare Devil Dive used to be. Soil Borings is one of the most important steps for putting down a foundation for an attraction. I think with how popular the Zamperla Frisbees are, we might be seeing one of them come to Six Flags America in 2020.

The boring locations create a rectangle ~80 ft wide by ~120 ft long. Zamperla lists the dimensions of their Giant Discoveries at 82' wide and 122' long. The boring locations would align (essentially) perfectly with where the footers could/would eventually go to have an attraction where the pendulum swings out towards the midway. Seems a pretty high probability of a Zamperla Giant Discovery coming to SFA...

Sweet! These things have always looked pretty awesome, psyched we could be seeing one. These past several additions have been very nice. Looks like we’re finally getting some level of attention from Six Flags (assuming that it is indeed a giant discovery)

A Zamperla Giant Discovery would be a wonderful addition to the park. I'm betting on a Harley Quinn theme given its location.

 

 

Not a Fortnight theme? I think they are just planting trees. Keeping my expectations low.
