Six Flags America (SFA) Discussion Thread

p. 337 - New Six Flags Hallowfest information!

Recommended Posts

I'm not going to waste my time responding right now, because I think everyone else is doing a fantastic job at this point. However, I just have to say, this is by far the most entertaining thread on the site right now.

 

I agree. It's been a long time sense the park last received an addition this big, so why not talk about it. And maybe I am being a little to over the heard about Tony Hawk. I change what I say. It would make a great addition to add it in SFA.

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

I was at the park on that day, too. It was actually my first visit, and I couldn't have picked a better day to experience the desolation that is Six Flags America on a November Sunday. There's no way

Well with the company now having the former CEO of Paramounts Parks, I think more coasters will be built. And like it said before, the family rides aren't bad. They are actually good, but I think it should be an every other year kind of thing if you know what I mean. The way Kings Dominion does it, they would get a new coaster every other year. Therefore it stays fair between people who like thrill rides and people who like family rides. Whats so wrong with that kind of plan? I think it works better in the long run.

 

I hope the new CEO takes a good look at SFA and takes notice that we just got a huge family addition, and decides to install a new thrill ride for 2011. That would be a very smart move. Not only that, but I hope he improves Fright Fest and takes a much more serious look into ride renovations.

I agree that the way other chains balanced building thrill rides and family rides is probably the best plan and brings in the largest number of guests. But this year the park is adding Thomas Town - a nice addition for the smallest little kids and their families. Next year they add a moderate sized coaster that all guests can enjoy. Sounds good to me.

Thanks for agreeing with me. But hey, I mentioned in another bankruptcy thread that I was beating a dead horse talking about the same thing. I'm going to give it a rest until this evening. That way it will give me time to think of new ideas.

As far as the placement of Tony Hawk goes, I think I enjoy the idea JEAPUgrad mentioned about placing it near the front, or in Two Face's old location. I'd like to see that spot filled with something other than the rubble that remains...

Once I stop banging my head against the wall I'm going to start pulling out my hair.

 

Oh Larry, there are much worse things that you could beat yourself up over, like the fact that Six Flags America is not sticking to the Master Plan. That is a good reason to bang your head against the wall.

Okay now, I was just viewing the many (some of them colorful) posts on this Six Flags America Thread when I saw this:

 

FROM SCREAMSCAPE

2011 - New Coaster - Rumor - (5/12/10) I’ve been told that Six Flags America has high hopes for 2011. If the park performs well for the 2010 season, it seems that there is a plan in place to possibly add a Tony Hawk Big Spin coaster to the park next summer. Two locations are said to be under consideration… either in the former Two-Face location or somewhere over near Roar.

 

Last time I heard about another coaster being added to the park, I believe that it was to be a junior woodie (something like the Roller Ghoster at Kings Dominion). The old Two-Face ride may be gone, but the old station still stands, and I could see it as being the new station for Six Flags America's newest coaster (And why not, Six Flags Great Adventure did the same thing as the old station for Viper got reused for El Toro). But now I can see a spinning coaster would also work (Count me in as a favorable vote for a spinning coaster; no other park in the immediate area has a spinning coaster).

 

Now as for my take on what the park should do with the old Rainbow Falls, here's my suggestion: why not take all four slides out and put in a bigger slide for a family raft slide ride?

 

"That's enough typing for this thread, so why not lay your head down on me?"

If SFA does get one of these coasters, then the best places (in my opinion) would be:

 

1. Two Face's old location.

2. Rainbow Falls location.

3. That huge gap between Superman and Batwing back up in Gotham. I never knew why Batwing was placed so far back anyways...

Only problem using the old two face station is that it was designed for an inverted track system....how could they work around the hydraulic station floor?

some might say for the themed stand-up that they were supposed to get

It's all part of the master plan, of course.

Park President John Winkler told me on the record last season that SF Inc thinks SFA already has too much wood.

 

Don't count on another wooden coaster for SFA.

The floor is gone, isn't it? All the ride components are gone now and from what I saw on Wild One earlier this year it looked like the floor was gone. The station has close to nothing left at all.

^^Please no Dark Krap for SFA. I'd take a clone of SFGAdv's Skull Mountain before I'd take a Mouse in a Box.

 

I agree. I spoke to this dude that lived near New Jersey, and he was visiting Kings Dominion. Before the park opened I mentioned the Dark Knight indoor coaster to my friend and the dude said "Ohhhh please, that ride was a piece of crap".

 

And yes, Skull Mountain at Great Adventure was cool. You can barely see anything in that building. It would be nice to build the same kind of coaster at SFA, but with a story. Better yet, I would rather (Premier Rides), design an all indoor version of that ride with a few LIM checkpoints.

 

And yes Hercules, I like to put things inside dark buildings. I like fast rides inside of the dark. Thats why I'm such a Flight of Fear, Mummy, and haunted house fanatic. There's nothing I love more than scary things in the dark.

Why does everyone hate TDK so much? Would you rather just have a plain wild mouse?

Actually, yes. A regular Wild Mouse would be amazing. Those rides were designed to be outdoors and in the open, not inside a cramped box with mediocre theming! You know, a regular wild mouse wouldn't look half bad at SFA.

I like TDK, it is my favorite wild mouse coaster. I just wish they would do something about the pre-show since it is such a waste of time especially after seeing it close to 30 times.

 

I think part of the reason it is hated so much is because it was added the year after Chiller, Flying Wave and Movietown Water Effect and Looping Starship were removed.

 

Based on the reaction the ride gets with both the GP in the park and enthusiasts, I don't think SF will be in any rush to add it to any more of their parks. Even 2 years later I still see people yelling negative comments about the ride to the people waiting to get into the pre-show.
