Six Flags Great America (SFGAm) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

A good old GCI would be amazing at Great America, big or small.

 

 

Agreed! And I do believe the addition will be a coaster. It is the only SF park doing teaser videos, and they are not going to start teases this early for a simple flat, and especially just a Sky Screamer. A new roller coaster is a safe prediction, and I honestly will be surprised if I'm wrong. (Not that I think I'm always right, as I rarely am lol)

"Screamscape sources in the area have virtually confirmed to us that Raging Cajun will be removed once the park closes for the season, and the coaster most likely sent over to Six Flags America for the 2014 season. However nothing new will be added to that spot in 2014… the new project will be elsewhere."

^Bummer. Better go get one last ride in before it moves. People love that ride.

 

They probably didn't love waiting in the cramped slow moving queue though. I'm sure people love every ride in some way. I'm not sure I have even ridden this 10 times since it opened. Wouldn't mind riding it if there was no line but it's certainly no Exterminator at Kennywood (even though it's the same ride).

As much as the rides had helped liven up that part of Orleans Place when it became Mardi Gras Ragin' Cajun was the only one that seemed out of place. I've probably only ridden it twice since it's been there.

 

Really? I'm no connoisseur of wild mouse coasters, but I thought the one in the box was more of an awkward fit. Meh. Glad to see that at least one of them is on it's way out. Hopefully it's not leaving just so they can shoehorn some other low capacity crap in it's place.

Hmm... That's strange, didn't that happen to iron wolf when x flight came on the scene?

^^ How are Green Latern and DDD low quality?

 

Low CAPACITY my friend. And that they both are. Cajun is a great mouse though, glad to see it find a home though.

 

Low capacity is what I was getting at, but low quality is applicable as well in the case of Dare Devil Dive (and Eurofighters in general) - at least to me. I've not had the opportunity to ride Green Lantern or any Zac-Spin, so no opinion there.

This can't be right. When Great America announced that they were going to remove the Iron Wolf back in 2011, it was in July i think. The park would have announced when they were going to remove it by now. And if Six Flags America was to take Rajin' Cajun I have to ask this question. Why can't Six flags America get an original coaster? Besides Batwing and The Wild One, all the rides are coasters that are in other places. Superman Ride of Steel: Mirror image at Darien Lake. Rage: Copy at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. Mind Eraser: Vekoma SLC. Joker's Jinx: Copy of Flight of Fear at King's Island and King's Domain. Apocalypse: Formerly Iron Wolf. It seems odd to me that they would take another Non-original coaster.

They wouldn't necessarily have to announce Ragin' Cajun's removal right now. They could announce it sometime next month because it can run through the rest of the year. The removal of Ragin' Cajun from SFGAm and assembly at SFA is very simple compared to bigger coasters or even a coaster like Iron Wolf. Cajun can be packed up and shipped in no time.

 

As far as your comment about them not receiving many original coasters, it's quite simple. The parks that don't receive as much attendance or bring in as much money as other parks in the chain receive cheaper installments most of the time. They also receive a lot of "hand me down" rides because it's cheap while still fooling a lot of the general public into thinking it's a new attraction. It may not seem fair, but it's just how business usually works.

I'm going to miss Ragin Cajun.

 

If anything, I'm glad it's not being scrapped.

 

I'd imagine there is quite a demand for a relatively new spinner like Ragin' Cajun. If it wasn't going to stay in-chain (SF), someone would probably snatch it up posthaste.
