Six Flags Great America (SFGAm) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Nice images in today's update.

 

The banner is worth noting: coming summer 2014.

 

It looks like they still have a lot on their "to do" list to open for public rides on Memorial Day.

 

That banner has been up on the station since September. It probably was just a fail safe in case there were delays but it is currently due to open on Memorial Day weekend.

 

And also keep in mind that Memorial Day is basically the unofficial start of summer (which is why the water park and most public pools open then). It's still two months away, I doubt there will be any issues.

^That's what it looked like to me too.

 

It also appears that it might be the same wooden structure for the bottom of the first drop too. The wooden bents for the bottom of the zero-G stall and first drop before the tunnel look connected.

^That's the way to do it. When is the construction itself expected to be finished?

 

There's not an official timeline other than the ride opening May 24th. I would imagine the structure would be finished by the end of this month so testing for the ride can begin in early May.

Even though that picture is a few days old I really like the look of the overbank structure. The track will only make it look more awesome.

 

The track is done on the overbank. Looks great. I just drove by it today and said hi.

^That's nice to hear that it's first years were good. The aging process hasn't been good to it, though. I wonder how it is up at SFA.

 

Rougher than I ever remember it being at Great America. The theming and effects are nice, though. And the station is designed better.

I really liked it personally but my head was above the restraints so I can't tell exactly how rough it was. Other people didn't seem to be as thrilled about it..

How does it compare to Shockwave at Kings Dominion?
