Six Flags Darien Lake (SFDL) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

^ I'd say land wise, either behind Brain Drain, or over the bridge. I don't really see any other area to put it in, unless Kahuna were to close.

They could put the slide to the side of the wave pool behind Big Kahuna. Most of Big Kahuna is over water, so I would not be surprised if the did the same thing for Wahoo Wave. There is a strip of land beside the wave pool where they could fit a queue, exit, and a splashdown pool.

My guess is that spot next Shipwreck Falls since the other end of the bridge where the current water park is now get very crowded with people let alone it's already crowded with attractions. If they get rid Hook's Lagoon for Wahoo Wave, they won't have any kiddie water slides.

I used google maps and the ProSlides Behemoth Bowl 40 and TornadoWave 60 hybrid from Over Georgia, since someone said that the footage from the announcement includes this slide and another and I think this was the bigger of the two, and as long as I did my scaling correct it could easily fit in the strip behind Kahuna, behind Brain Drain pointing north to south, or even in between brain drain and tornado with it's splash down pool fitting right in that grass plot.

^^ Honestly I think that's so cool that you did that lol. Props. Either way, good addition haha.

 

^ Well we don't right now anyways, they're coned/roped off...

Then why is Hook's Lagoon still open if the water blasters and dump buckets aren't no longer working and the slides closed off?

 

Wouldn't have the answer to that.

Wait, are you suggesting we arent telling the truth? Have you never walked through hooks lagoon? There are plenty of things at hooks lagoon that make it worth it being open. Yet slot of the extras it used to offer do not work, which is disappointing

Great Adventure has typically announced additions for Hurricane Harbor a couple months afterwards (usually January). This was true for last year's addition as well as the play structure we added in 2016.

^ But Great Escape didn't really announce anything about Shipwreck Cove, I got there in July, looked at the map and was like, "Wait there's two new additions?"

 

Shipwreck Cove was incorporated into the main "New for 2019" announcements alongside Bucket Blasters as an expansion and rebranding of the water park into Hurricane Harbor:

 

Six Flags Great Escape Resort, New York’s most thrilling resort property, will rebrand its outdoor waterpark as Hurricane Harbor for the 2019 season, offering guests a bigger, better and wetter experience. The park will undergo a major expansion with more to see and do than ever before, including two brand-new, family attractions: Bucket Blasters, where riders will spin around in barrels for a good old-fashioned water gun battle, and Shipwreck Cove, a fun activity pool with interactive water sprays, geysers, and fountains for hours of water play entertainment.

^ no need to think we are, SplashTown is 100% becoming Hurricane Harbor in 2020.

 

This won’t be a “Cedar Point Shores” style refresh but it will likely have some signage updates - but I won’t expect anything too crazy minus the new slide.

 

If they can install it on that plot o’ land across from the bridge I feel like that would be pretty neat. Otherwise - what do I care? Seems like it’ll be a nice addition regardless of where it ends up.

^ Well when I was at HH at The Great Escape, it looked like some of it was updated aside from the expansion with Bucket/Shipwreck. The wave pool looked nice and sported the HH logo, as well as a new "entrance" to the water park. I'd say almost everything looked like it had a fresh coat of paint on it.

 

In the member email, it DID say something about tropical fresh coat of paint, we can only hope lol.

Though it may or may not be the case, I wonder if they’re waiting to see attendance numbers for the entirety of 2019 before they make a decision about the return of any licensed characters.

 

If this is the case, it could be part of why they didn’t mention anything like the “Return of Superman” similar to SFNE in 2017.

 

Or I’m a hopeless dreamer and we’re without the DC universe in 2020. (Which is probably the case)

Took a couple laps around Predator this weekend, and due to the fact that I tend to let friends of mine pick where they want to sit on Coasters, I ended up riding in the back both during yesterday’s nice weather and tonight’s rainy weather.

 

Shockingly, I found both rides incredibly amusing and fun. To the point where I didn’t feel like the roughness was bad, more or less I thought it made the ride a fun time,

 

This being compared to front seat rides attempting the “Mean Streak Method” was completely night and day. I thought this coaster was on its way out but honestly after the rides I had on it this weekend, it may just still have some life left in it!

The email said the re-brand includes new paint and re-theming so I would suspect itll look quite different. Wonder if that means theyll paint Big Kahuna because its pretty faded.

 

Take this for what its worth but a DL lifeguard said on IG that its going between Big Kahuna and the wave pool.
