Six Flags Fiesta Texas (SFFT) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

So there were markers on top of the quarry in relation to 2017, right? This spot was right where they do the nighttime show, yeah? Why isn't everybody simply expecting some type of improvement to that show? Just my thoughts...

 

That spot seems awfully strange for a coaster/any other ride anyway.

I misinterpreted some of the initial clues. When I saw photos from those heights, combined with questions about how fast does it take to get from point A to point B (I don't remember the actual rides they used), my mind went to transport ride.

 

You see, THIS is exactly why I don't participate in speculation! People see just how much of an idiot I actually am!

All the clues are world's firsts. First vertical loop, first invert, first 4D and 4D Free Spin, first mine train.

 

My bet is still on a Mack Power Splash. Despite there already is one at Walibi Belgium, this would still be a first for North America, and maybe will have a unique element to it. At this point, I'm really expecting any larger scale coaster or water ride.

^Yeah but, this is Six Flags we're talking about here! It will be the worlds first Giga-Mine-Train-Coaster to run BACKWARDS WITH VIRTUAL REALITY!!!

 

But in all seriousness, I am so confused this time... Hey doesn't Six Flags create the new ride webpages a about a day early and you can kinda find the new ride names by finding the URL to the new ride page for each park?

I don't have any Photoshop skills to post a picture of this area, but look on the satellite view of the park, and you'll see a wide open area of land at the base of the cliffs, back between The Gully Washer, and their Star Flyer. There's water there as well, and a clear patch of land that stretches to in front of the Lone Star Lil's Amphitheater. There's a place something can dive off the cliff there as well, either to the West of the waterfalls, or a little towards the East. And isn't that where one of the pictures teasing the new attraction was taken from, where the Fireworks are shot off from?

 

It seems a Dive/Water coaster off the cliffs there would be a bit of a first, and a pretty exciting addition, eh?

Based on the clues, I'm worried about losing the train ride (if they're reusing the tunnel for something else) or losing the fireworks show (due to the quarry wall being blocked). I don't think they'd do either because they're so popular, but who knows- they're probably the most expensive attractions to operate, too.

 

I was wondering if a Power Splash could go through the quarry wall (a tunnel parallel to the existing one) and have its vertical sections far enough apart or to one side that it wouldn't block the fireworks show projections. It'd have one 45 meter tall section of track on either side of that quarry wall peninsula that sticks out. It seems possible but likely cost prohibitive.

 

As always, I'm hoping for a wooden coaster despite no clues indicating this! One more day to find out!

SFFT will never have a giga coaster because it is in the approach path for San Antonio Airport. I think someone once wrote here that their height ceiling is 200ft above the quarry floor, which is only about 120ft above the surrounding area. This is especially silly because the resorts and homes up on the nearby hill are much taller than that.

Man! SFFT is sure causing a lot of limbs to sprout up! Why do I have this sneaking suspicion that they're going to be bringing out a tree trimmer tomorrow...

 

(Honestly, with how lackluster most park announcements have been this year in regard to coasters, people are probably just making like Leia with R2D2, and saying "Help us SFFT! You're our only hope!" )

Im going out on a limb and saying that they are getting the first ever RMC T-Rex. They would be the only park in the world with 2 RMCs.

 

And 3 coasters with RMC built track

I still think that clue that was posted on top of the quarry is for a new firework show celebrating the 25th anniversary.

I doubt they would build something in that photogenic area that would eliminate the nighttime show AND the waterfalls.

Not getting my hopes up too much!

How would they be able to shoot fireworks off up there without accidentally shooting one into the giga or T rex track and damaging it? Please try to follow along.

Because clearly that T-Rex track is indestructible!
