Six Flags Fiesta Texas (SFFT) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

It HAS been worn out. Six Flags didnt have in the budget for a new invert so they just recycled. SFFT is full of carnival rides. I understand why it happened. When SF bought the park it had only a hand full of rides so what they did was add 3 and 4 rides a year that were mediocure to give the ride roster a boost. I fully understand why but it would have made more sense to bring Serial Thriller from Houston there instead of an identical clone that is 5 miles away. For the record, I HATE SERIAL THRILLER, but it would have given a variety to the area instead of a clone, but lets stop beating a dead horse it is a done deal.

I'm in line for Dare Devil Dive in technical rehearsal. This is not a drill. I repeat: this is not a drill!

Superman is my favorite floorless coaster.  I love the forces and that layout.  It also surprised me last time when I stopped at the nearby shopping mall and saw it poking above the quarry up there.

^^ It was today, Bert — from about 11:15am to 2:00pm. The mask business was bad. I'm over getting bent out of shape about such things, but I did get a few stealth-creeper snapshots to send to fri

I don't think it would've been questionable to put in a BTR when there's one at SFOT. That park is a few hours away, so folks would think "yay, now I can ride one of these in my home town!"

 

What *IS* questionable, though, is that there is already one in the same town that has been there for many years. Nearly everyone has already been on Great White at Sea World, so I don't really see this drawing a lot of extra local business.

 

If they do something "special" with it (like a tunnel, different trains, some really close clearances to nearby structures, etc) to make it seem like a totally different ride, then it could work.

 

If they absolutely HAD to put in a BTR there, I'd have rather seen it perched on the edge of the cliff. Coming over the lift and swooping out around the drop right at the edge of a 100+ft cliff would've been seriously cool, and reason enough for me to drive to San Antonio....

^I'm guessing he complained that no park is building an Intamin-hyper-launched-aquatrax, but instead are building family friendly coasters. Whatever though, the park/company won't care about his thoughts.

 

^^Why would you e-mail to complain that they aren't adding a large/custom coaster? It just shows a lack of maturity and makes all enthusiasts look bad.(go join ACE for that)

 

end rant

 

While I don't like the name Goliath, I'm still happy that SFFT is building a new coaster, and the gp won't know/care they can ride it at two other parks in the state.

 

Airtime-what were you thinking-&Gravity

 

Well,after the announcements I emailed SF to let them know that I won't be returning to my local SF park(SFA) until new attractions are added & changes in park operations are made so they just lost me,and a friend as a customer after five straight years of no new ride installations(in the ride side of the park,the waterpark doesn't count as I've got no interest in it at all) & terrible operations with regard to their flashpass nonsense.

 

Good thing that at least KD is adding something new to keep me going there instead.

^Well, that at least sounds a lot better than emailing them simply to inform them that you think all of the new rides the chain is adding this year are "stupid."

 

Depending on how you look at it, this addition makes complete sense to SF. Once SWT started getting competition from Fiesta Texas, what did they do? They added coasters. So when SFFT is feeling competition from SWT and are capable of installing a clone of arguably SWT's best ride, what do they do? Install it. It takes significance away from SWT and gives the customers of SWT less of a reason to go there. Sure, SWT is still a park that offers a very different experience than SFFT, but nevertheless, it decreases the attraction that ride might have had on customers. Just looking at it from a business perspective.

I really don't understand the complaining about getting a coaster clone as y'll call it here in a six flags park. The people here in san antonio who buy the season passes usually just go to Fiesta texas. instead of getting in the car, waisting a ton of gas money driving to arlington then coming back. Also most people usually buy one type of season pass. either schliterbahn, sea world, or FIesta Texas. If you buy a sea world pass or ticket for that matter, great you can go ride the steel eel and great white and watch some shows. On the flip side if you get a six flags pass you get to ride superman, scream, poltergeist and whole lot of other great rides plus you get the good shows. thats like seaworld times 2.

 

Also if i get this right maybe they didn't name this ride Batman because the name is copyrighted. As far as I have heard the reason they didn't name it batman was because to use that name would cost allot more money to use. Like y'll said earlier it is a relocated ride so those using less money. They are on a budget. that is all there is to it!!!!

 

Also they are a family park and focuses on rides that everyone can ride on If you don't like that, travel to another park that was built for extreme coaster enthusiasts.

 

Also shame on the person who emailed six flags on a complaint about a ride that hasn't even been built yet.

SFI owns the copyrights to use the B:TR name & could've done so in this case but simply chose not to at SFFT.I emailed SF to complain about a LACK of new rides being added to MY local SFpark over the past five years,not to complain about SFFT getting this ride when my homepark SFA already has an SLC to begin with.

Wow how dead on is that quote?! Their prices are double, their waits are double, their dispatch times are double. etc.

 

From my experiance working at Sea World, believe it or not, the majority of San Antonians (my word I made up) actually have passes to both parks. People that only do one are in the severe minority. I think the ride is a good addition, however, I think a lot of people will notice as I get told that the "Great White" is the same as BTR in Arlington a lot.

Maybe its just me but I've always thought the S&S drop towers without some sort of "crown" on top of them (like Supreme Scream at Knotts) look really odd and out of place.

I like the colors. That blue is awfully pretty, and the yellow sets it off nicely. At least it's not another orange and teal Goliath.

 

I'm glad this ride is coming back up. It's had some tough times and it's good to see it survive. Fiesta Texas will be a good home for it. The mirrors are rare. I'm glad we have one at my homepark (SFSTL) just because they offer something at least a little different from the others. With that said, I tend to enjoy the ones that drop to the left a little more.

Its so odd to see a Batman layout with non-Batman colors featuring the Goliath name with non-Goliath colors (The Orange and Green).

 

Hope the ride maintains well through the move!

While I don't think it matters that much, it's kind of funny they are painting the tracks a very similar bright BLUE as the Batman clone 15 miles away:
