Six Flags Fiesta Texas (SFFT) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

There is only one Zacspin in the U.S., are people really bothered that this is a clone? A better one too?

That's not a clone. Green lantern and this are two different types of coasters, but similar concept. Green lantern is intamin, this is RMC and s&s. Anyways I guess my rumors were wrong about this going to frontier city. Well this ain't to far away from me. Looks like an awesome ride

^Now that I compare the layouts, you're right. The Zacspin is a lot more compact.

 

Isn't calling this a clone of a zacspin, a bit like calling Gerstlauer spinning coasters clones of Mauher Sohnes spinning coasters, or B&M flyers clones of vekomas flying dutchmans? I mean yes very similar concepts but isn't clone a bit too far?

Oh, I thought you guys wanted a Super Loop?

 

In all honesty, I think it looks fantastic, and I appreciate Six Flags taking a step out of their comfort zone for this one. While the name may become a little confusing for some park goers, I like that SFFT finally has their own Batman: The Ride.

 

Kudos to the people who have been calling this for a while. Maybe the Aquatrax will come next year.

If this were my home park, I would be very disappointed. All that speculation and many teasers for this?

 

Now don't get me wrong, this looks like a great concept. I always liked ZacSpins, Free Flys, etc. They are very unique. The ride itself looks like it will be fun, but it is very compact and was over-teased.

 

I'm not bashing the ride, the park, the manufacturer, or Six Flags. I'm just bashing the teaser campaign.

showed my kids this morning before school and they loved it, can't wait. Just wish it was a little longer track/ride time. we have a quite a few rides that are rather short. Either way, we will be there every day during the summer of 2015.

I am disappointed mostly because of the huge footprint cleared for this compact, low-capacity ride. It's not a bad addition, but it's not a major one... yet. Surely with Rockin' at Rockville closing there are more announcements to come... right?

 

The throughput of this ride looks to be hardly any better than Motorama, and that's saying something!

 

I still can't believe they didn't use either of the existing bridges in the landscaping for a coaster. They definitely teased this, and it would have been great. What a let down! Again: it's not a bad addition, but Six Flags had my expectations set way, way higher. I was expecting something like X2 and got something closer to Green Lantern.

How do you know if it's a major addition when it's a prototype coaster and you've never ridden one like it before? Sure it looks similar to a ZacSpin but by all accounts it doesn't ride like one. Personally I think it looks like fun.

I like it, looks like a neat concept that will improve upon all the issues with the ZacSpins. I'm a little skeptical of the capacity though, that's always been my issue with this ride style. I'm not sure I understand why big parks keep buying smaller, low-capacity rides.

 

I don't get why all the fanboys are "let down" because of the teaser campaign though. EVERYTHING is being teased these days, and there never was any precedent for a teaser campaign being used for ONLY huge additions. This ride is a pretty big deal in any case, and like it or not it will be fun and most visitors will eat it up.

 

I think the best part of this announcement is just the fact that S&S is still chugging along and selling coasters. They have so many great concepts that I would like to see flourish again. Please start marketing the family launched coasters again!
