Six Flags Darien Lake (SFDL) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Speaking of coasters potentially driving attendance, news was dropped today that Green Lantern was removed from Six Flags Magic Mountain. How likely is it that the roller coaster is relocated? Also, how likely is it that Six Flags Darien Lake will receive it once it is relocated? Or is it more likely that Six Flags America or Six Flags St. Louis will receive it?

 

Nobody should want that ride, it has been a nightmare ever since it opened, the S&S free spins are a better successor to the Zac Spin models any day.

Maybe it is better then that the Freespin is more likely? I have ridden neither models, so to be honest, I have no idea what either are really like. Are Zacspins really that horrible?

 

I've heard from people you can get whiplash and headaches, S&S's larger layout looks like it can help that. The Joker at SFNE is great so I hope DL gets a Freespin

I don't know about the other Zacspins, but for me, Green Lantern was really uncomfortable and a little jerky when I rode in 2014. Last Summer I ridden Joker at Six Flags Great America and it was a million times smoother and comfortable than GL.

 

Just take my word for it, Green Lantern is really bad.

Or great Escape

Actually from what I hear Great Escape is actually a pretty nice small sized park. La Ronde though...

 

Great Escape is my home park, they are getting a great flat selection and a great water park. It’s nice my Great Escape pass also works at Six Flags New England and Six Flags Darien Lake so when I want to ride actual coasters I can. The Comet is great too

Saying that a park has a great flat ride collection and a great waterpark is like saying a girl has a great personality.

You forgot to mention the Blizzard Indoors, the indoor Scrambler which in my opinion is the best flat ride at the park. I greatly enjoyed it during my first visit to The Great Escape last July.

Luckily it was not long when I had visited due to a passing storm. It would be great to see more parks make them enclosed. Maybe Darien Lake could do that with their Scrambler?

This is the nicest this thread has been in a few weeks and it’s because we directed discussion toward a completely different park

LOL true. I have never been to Great Escape myself though because the only times I have been to the Adirondacks have been either with family or friends, either way meaning we're there to climb up a mountain. I have to admit it is a weird place to operate an Amusement park. However, maybe its weird location is just another reason why I should visit it someday. Also.... I climbed Loon Lake Mountain last summer with college friends and it was amazing!

 

Okay now back to the subject of Darien Lake.... how likely is it to see an S&S Freespin come to Six Flags Darien Lake by the 2020 season?

I don't know, why not just look at the responses to this question last time you asked it?

I'm honestly impressed you remembered that he asked that questions already.

Allegedly that had been the plan back in the day to install it in the old Cinema 2000 building, but it was too big to fit.
