Six Flags Great America (SFGAm) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

With this addition, that makes the wooden coaster count at the park 4 (or 5 if you count AE as 2 coasters). This isn't just a high number of any wooden coasters but very good wooden coasters. I mean, Little Dipper isn't more than a kids coaster but it is a piece of Chicagoland history. Viper is one of the best cyclone styled wooden coasters if not the best. American Eagle is my favorite coaster in the park though it could use some paint, retracked helixes, and an updated station. All of the wooden coasters at the park are great so I'm thrilled to have one that has the potential to not only be the best at the park but one of the best in the world.

Do enthusiasts ever show up to the meeting and support the park? Not that it will matter if they don't when the park generates $2 million in tax revenue for Gurnee. I only live 15 minutes away but will just watch it online. Want to be with the wife and kids at home.

^ I want to know what will be removed to make it fit

 

Assuming anything will. I'd love to see SFGAm shoehorn their latest addition in. Working with constraints often leads to more creativity in the design. Just look at Wodan at Europa Park.

 

EDIT: OMG look at the ACEr in the stream! XD

Killjoys at the mic. You moved into a house by an amusement park! Love the guy who just muttered "you can move" by the camera!

 

Should go to a planning meeting for Six Flags America... they need to get approval for almost ANYTHING they do and there is ALWAYS a few complainers.

Given the location diagram posted, it looks like a double out and back design with a possible immelmann or dive loop at the turnaround by the station. It also looks like the old theater will also be staying which is a bit of a surprise. However, it looks like two, possibly three picnic pavilions will be removed to make room.

I am not surprised by it. It's pretty entertaining. I know exactly where all these people live, and it is literally adjacent to the park. What do they expect?

 

The lady at the mic is clueless about the park. Earlier and earlier noises? The park opens a half hour later this year!
