Six Flags Fiesta Texas (SFFT) Discussion Thread

P. 288: New B&M Dive Machine Announced!

Recommended Posts

As great as an RMC woodie sounds, I don't think that it will happen since they already have Iron Rattler. Even though iRat is a hybrid coaster, it sounds like the experience on RMC woodies is similar, so I'm betting that it will be some sort of steel coaster. Maybe it will be something from Premier Rides since Six Flags has gone to them a lot in recent years.

SFFT wouldn't be going through all this if it wasn't a brand new coaster. I don't see them going through all the trouble of guessing games if it was getting a transfer coaster. Also, SFFT is kind of slim on coasters compared to other Six Flags parks. They have 8. Yeah, they just got the Rattler revamp, but still only 8 coasters. They really need another coaster. Plus, as far south as San Antonio is, they could really keep this park open all year long like SFDK does. So, I can see Six Flags trying to invest more into this park. I'm expecting a big nice addition to the park...but that's just my opinion. If I had to guess, it's going to be a non looping wooden roller coaster seeing how they don't have one currently. And maybe RMC is about to give us something new we haven't seen before.

The GP has no idea about that, though

Even if they did, explain Behemoth and Leviathan at CW, or Lightning a Racers and Wildcat at HP, or Raven and The Legend at HW. It's been done before in the industry and has seemed to work out just fine! Granted, this would be going in the opposite direction (as all of those projects were small then big) but than again, Maverick came after getting TTD, El Toro came after Kingda Ka...

 

I highly doubt RMC as well, they seem to have a lot on the it plate already next year...

Do we know this is for sure a coaster? If it is, I'm hoping for some sort of launched coaster that goes through the quarry wall.

 

By the way, didn't RMC say they have a steel coaster concept on the drawing board?

 

 

Whatever it is, it wouldn't have any interaction with the quarry. The quarry wall is nowhere near this site.

It seems like this is going to be a pretty good sized project since they are implying that part of Rockville will close August 10th. This is a really exciting moment in time for us six flags fans in SATX! It's great that six flags is investing in our home park!

Has anyone thought (sorry If I missed it) they would build the last 1/3rd of Rattler? They can market it and everything Maybe they'll finish Goliath at Great America after Rattler.

 

(PS - those truncated designs are NOT an issue of space, they are an issue of money.) Cough up the rest of those coasters, Six Flags! YOLO!

I don't think that RMC has much more space to book. Even though they built a new facility, you need workers to set things up.

 

RMC has only been able to produce at max two coasters per year, and it seems like next year Magic Mountain and SFNE are going to get new coasters from them. I highly doubt that GCI will be doing this either.

^ ugh, why even bring that up?!? Lol... Thanks for the added stress!

 

Just being a realist here. But that doesn't mean that a coaster from RMC isn't possible. It takes about 35 construction workers per coaster, but they work for RMC.

 

RMC could just manufacture the track and give the design to the park. Then the park can hire an outside construction crew to do it. For example, at Holiday World the workers on site do not work for B&M they are just an outside crew.
