That’s correct. If you’re in the state for less than 24 hours you’re perfectly in compliance with the quarantine but be warned that if you’re there for 24 hours and one second you’re not and you’ll be

Soooo late last night I was tumbling down a Youtube coaster rabbit hole and came across this video of a review of El Toro (I know we're not supposed to link to certain channels but for the sake of thi

^ It would certainly fit right in that spot.

 

I'm at the point where I really hope it is just because it'll piss so many people off. It'll just be a bonus if they market it as a coaster.

I finally got to ride Zumanjaro in May and the park was deserted. My walk back was all by myself with no one to be seen. When I finally made it all the way back to the station I was greeted by a ton of ops and no one else riding. I was the only one on for my cycle. Getting hoisted 415' into the air all by myself was nerve wracking. I thought I was going to die all by myself. When it finally dropped I couldn't believe how long the free fall was. That drop goes on FOREVER! A truly outstanding drop tower. When it finally hit the brakes there was still no one waiting, and the ops let me ride AGAIN all by myself.

A Skywarp is way more of a coaster than a Super Loop.

 

Also, CALLED IT!

 

Guys! Guys guys guys! What if, hear me out...what if it's a Skywarp with, wait for it...CRAZY COUCHES AS THE TRAIN!

The gyroscope clue makes me think it will be some kind of flat ride that spins. Are there any protype coasters out there that includes spinning cars? Maybe I am taking the gyroscope part too literally and it will just be a Skywarp. Hopefully we get a few more clues leading up to the announcement.

Has anyone bought one of these yet?

That's exactly what I was thinking when the question was asked. I don't think that I've seen anyone else with this yet. If they go this route hopefully they have the turntable or side to side loading platform for capacity at least. Turntable would seem to be the option to cut down on ops.

 

BTW, if this is the addition then SDC's addition blows it away.

Don't believe so. It checks all the boxes based on the clues:

 

-Gyroscope=spinning.

-Accelerometer=launched.

-Seems like an affordable option with multiple gimmicky selling points.

-Can be cloned easily.

-Can fit in a small footprint.

 

I would MUCH prefer this to a Skywarp. It would give an already diverse-lineup more variety. I would prefer our next coaster to be more traditional given just last year we got a coaster with spinning cars and a very basic layout. It would also likely knock us out of the RMC sweepstakes until 2020. Still, it would be a very welcome addition to fill out Metropolis.

Honestly other than a Skywarp or an S&S Twisted Looper, this is the only other first of its kind that I could think of Gradv installing.

I wouldn't mind one of these Mack spinners at all. I hate spinning but I see the all the positives. Its a worlds first (apparently?). Its an actual coaster compared to a Skywarp, so that helps the sobbing enthusiast problem, and it would offer some variety to a park that has a little bit of everything in the coaster dept already.

 

And while its low capacity, its about the same as Joker which has mostly manageable waits if you know what days to avoid going to the park. This would fit in Old Country across from JLBFM and would round out that area well. And it would likely be open for HITP.

 

I really hope that whatever is coming, its going there. The more new rides farther away from El Toro the better.

Oh god, give me the Skywarp please. After seeing SDC's addition, put all spinning coaster additions on hold for the time being. Plus, I rather wait it out for a T-Rex to be our next coaster.

Though I wonder if Six Flags would cheap out and not get the turntable model

I'm actually hoping today's announcement is for a Cyborg-themed skywarp, it looked so impressive at IAAPA and would love to have one somewhat close to home. Screamscape showed some "Star Labs" teasers which seem to hint at the Cyborg character.

Todays announcement is about Fright Fest.
