Six Flags Great America (SFGAm) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I'm speaking of the "Demon viewing area" (there was a sign for it) which was under one of the corkscrews, near the old waterfall and blood fountains I'm thinking it was taken out around the time of Splash Water Falls.

Are you talking about the area in the lower right hand of this picture?

 

I think that's it. I just remember it around and/or merging with the Splash water falls exit. The vivid part for me was the sign stating it was the "Demon viewing area."

 

I also recall there being an American Eagle viewing area, which I think went away when they brought in the Wiggles World (or has it been gone all the way back to when they moved Big Top? I'm not sure).

Here we go... Ive lived in both gurnee and chicago for 14 years. There is no such thing as day long/week long thunder storms. There might be a chance all day ling and some sudden downpours but nothing crazy. This could be a problem though..

Thrillseekers (the gift shop Goliath will exit through) opened up today. It includes Goliath apparel (shirts, hoodies, jackets), hats, cups/mugs, lanyards, keychains, pins, and gladiator themed costume pieces. Also, there WILL be an on-ride photo. The photo booth is located inside the gift shop. Overall, it looks much larger on the inside than it originally seemed in my opinion. It's not overflowing with unnecessary and irrelevant things, it's strictly all Goliath.

That's good to hear. I looked at the Goliath merchandise in Carousel Plaza Gifts last week and none of the T-shirts looked that great. I saw one shirt that was decent, but the image was the old rendering of Goliath's drop with the wooden supports instead of the steel. Hopefully there's some better ones in Thrillseekers since the merchandise is just exclusive to Goliath.

 

Do we know where the on-ride camera is going to be yet? My guess is either at the bottom of the first drop or the exit of the Zero-G stall since it enters a tunnel. I can see them placing it right under the roof of the tunnel. Another good place is the bottom of the dive loop.

Considering that they haven't even started testing yet...

 

You probably know where that sentence is going. EDIT: Maybe not. Who knew?

Wait...so this commercial shoot has all it's information out and it's on the 30th. But they still haven't put out any information regarding the Media Day on the 29th?

 

Well, this commercial shoot is trying to get members of the public to do it. They don't have a list of people or anything. For the media day, it's not for the general public, so it's possible the people going to it already have some info, and even if they don't, the park knows who they are so they can get them the info.

I know I have to show up at 3am on May 29th. That is all I know about media day, and having done enough of these, that's usually about all the info I get. Most of the time I'm lucky to know what entrance to use. I'm sure the park will send info to Robb that will in turn be sent to everyone going from CTPR.
