Six Flags Darien Lake (SFDL) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

The free haunted bus ride they used to at Darien Lake was fairly entertaining. It would be nice to see that come back.

those buses have to be long gone or just beyond repair unfortunately, but i agree would be nice to see come back.

I'm pretty sure some of the busses hang out in the area behind Viper with that random tram.

You know what other park is larger and could use a B&M capable of 3 train operation? Six Flags Magic Mountain.

Yeah, a bunch of parks jumped on the “Budget cut this and blame covid because nobody will question it” gravy train last year. Six Flags was better than most but they’re not above it. Not opening a bad

^ Yes! Behind the building that previously housed sea lions, Nik Walenda, and Batman, that's currently used for maintenance. I'm sure if you get off viper and look behind that building you could see them, that is, if they haven't moved them or scrapped them.

Does anyone know what that tram was ever used for?

Maybe it was used for the train that went around Elk Lake? I'm not sure, but I'm just taking a wild guess.

Thinking of going to the park tomorrow for the day. Want to know what the crowds are going to be like. I haven't been to Darien Lake in over 10 years. Where is the best places to eat in the park?

^ During the week it's kinda dead, Tantrum and Ride of Steel will have the longest wait around 15-20 minutes, everything else is gonna be a one ride wait or a walk on.

 

The best places to eat in my opinion is either the boardwalk, they have everything, or Maria's Italian Kitchen, they have stuff like raviolis, spaghetti parm, etc, and it's SUPER GOOD, like it's a step up from their normal theme park food they have everywhere else, definitely recommend.

So, the first 2019 addition rumor is already leaking out online. Take it with a grain of salt as this is based off of "someone said this at a presentation" claims.

 

So, someone else (won't say who) on another website made the rather interesting claim that he knows someone who went to a presentation hosted by head Darien Lake / Six Flags corporate people. This claim goes on to say that this other individual that went to the meeting heard plans to add a Skywarp attraction to Darien Lake for 2019.

 

Again, don't take this too seriously yet, I don't know how valid the claim really is. However I will say that it seems like a decent addition if it happens. Also, if it becomes the next addition, it will technically be the Park's 9th coaster.

This person may or may not even exist but let's just say if they did they may or may not have attended a secret Six Flags meeting and well... Darien Lake is getting a Skywarp.

 

Again, don't even read into this bullsh*t, its probably bullsh*t. But it might be a coaster. Maybe not though.

Who knows? All that matters is we'll have 9 coasters. Big league.

Seems rather redundant with Rolling Thunder unless they plan on replacing it already (although a small possibility given the troubles it's had). Footprint space in the same location would be tough unless they also cleared out the Subway.

Or Sleighride...

Seems redundant, but remember, the only Skywarp right now is it SF Discovery Kingdom. That park also has a Super Loop as well. Therefore, it is very possible to see this addition, based on that another SF park has both a Super Loop and Skywarp.

Sleighride’s removal wouldn’t surprise me honestly. That thing looks worse that ever, it is rusting, paint is fading off, many decorative elements on the front facade are now gone, and I was informed that most of the lights randomly stopped working this year. It is old, and terrible shape. It’s removal actually seems like a good possibility.

Seems odd they're putting in new additions as soon as they just acquired the park, as it'd make sense to wait a year, see how things work, spruce up the park, THEN add rides. But if that's what they're gonna do I'm not complaining.

Possible if they plan on rebranding the park to Six Flags in the first year.

^ Seems like it, cause they're bringing in Fright Fest advertisements in the park currently, and the event is sponsored by Snickers, so it's indeed a Six Flags Fright Fest.

Adding something new every year to each park has been SF's MO the last few years, so it wouldn't suprise me to see them add a ride to DL next year. But you are correct that the park does need some upkeep and two train ops on the major coasters. As much as people like to bag on SF, almost all of their major coasters run two trains.

^ Which is the need, concert days are awful, since they only have one train (excluding Tantrum but that has a low capacity too), I can wait on a new ride for 2020, what I'd like is a second train on AT LEAST Ride Of Steel and Viper.

I just hope whatever they decide to do they don't waste money on a stupid parade or "festival" thing like the Mardi Gras ones they have done. It feels like a cop-out when they do that when they don't want to add a ride. The money would be better spent on sprucing up the park and getting new trains for the coasters even if it isn't a sexy addition for the GP.

I'm looking forward to a Six Flags Darien Lake pin trading program. I have a lot of Six Flags pins from when they owned DL in the past. I should post my pins on this forum. Would anyone be interested in seeing them?
