Six Flags Fiesta Texas (SFFT) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Everyone is sharing the animation of Batman on my Facebook. And they aren't people I met on coaster websites, just family, friends, and such. I saw one this morning saying "I would drive to Texas just for that!" I'm glad this ride is causing a lot of hype. It's even got more attention then the announcement of Banshee, and that is like an hour away from me. And a little more than the Thunderbird announcement.

It really has like every news thing in the country is like OMG A NEW THING when I'm just kinda like "it's like the zacspins" but dad doesn't understand he's like "but it's something new" and I'm like "but it's like the zacspins" and he's like "..........but it's something new." So it's cool that it's getting hype I guess (get hype, turnup)

Does that article really say that the park is located in the city of Fiesta, Texas?
Yes it does. Fail on Yahoo's part!!!

Fail on the journalist's part for their "excellent reporting skills," more like!

 

The article is actually from CNET

 

Clicky: www.cnet.com/news/4d-batman-roller-coaster-tosses-you-to-gotham-and-back/

 

But they call the park "Six Flags Fiesta Texas" later on in the article. Still amusing nonetheless.

I'm seeing hype on my Facebook from non enthusiast people here in RI. Mostly with the quote : would you ride this? A lot of attention on the spinning seats. I expect these to pop up everywhere in 2016.

 

I love to see this American coaster revolution. With the loss of Arrow and strong new RMC and S&S products the US is coming back to the market!

Whoa...this looks like a lot of fun!

 

I guess that it's a good thing that our originally planned Texas road trip got postponed this year because of work - apparently a blessing in disguise at the time!

 

Definitely need to set aside two weeks next year so I can hit up all of the parks (and water parks) in Texas.

Same thing here - every one is like "Have you seen this?" Batman really seems to be having an impact from the GP. It must be that spinning feature.

it was just featured on Chris Hardwick's "At Midnight" show on Comedy Central

 

(tho to be fair, they were picking on it that the only thing it has to do with Batman is the "Gotham like weather in the animation". . LOL

I still don't understand all the hate on the hype. Holiday World went 66 days with plenty of fake clues to hype a boring B&M coaster. The park was having fun with the hype. As far as the video goes, it just so happen to go viral. It was a slow internet day. I think the coaster will be a great addition and better then a zac spin.

I totally agree. At least SFFT is getting some attention. This is definately going to be a great addition to the park. And although it's similar to a Zac Spin, there's only one of those in the U.S. which is Green Lantern. Although it may not be a big deal to is coaster enthusiast, the hype is all about the GP and they are totally eating it up.

I'd much rather have that "boring" B&M coaster.

Honestly, we cant expect to get the most expensive B&M coaster or something that's going to be the best ride in the world. You guys are getting something that I wish my hometown park was getting (SFGAm - I know we got Goliath, but we are getting literally nothing this year), so I would just be happy with what you have and try to make the most of it. I really want to ride this thing! Just have to figure out a way to get there

 

Oh, and Thunderbird is boring? I thought I was a tough critic . . .
