¿Por qué tan grave?

 

That's spanish for 'Why So Serious?'

 

Saludos desde México!

 

Well, the word "Grave" is usually used to express a critical situation... just a cultural comment.

 

About the new coaster, there is no official announcement, but there are different clues.

 

1st, clue: Work at the site. at the montanarusa.com forums are several pictures showing work near the "Rueda India" (A Ferris Wheel), and the station of the defunct "Tren Santa Fe" (A Train):

2nd. Clue:

 

A Local news paper, showed this note last week:

http://www.milenio.com/node/109611

 

Six Flags, de estreno

 

La recesión que viene no afectará los planes de crecimiento de Six Flags en México. La próxima semana vendrá el presidente y director general del grupo, Mark Shapiro, para presentar el programa de inversiones y las nuevas atracciones que tendrá el parque de diversiones en este que es uno de sus principales mercados entre los 20 parques temáticos que opera aquí, en Estados Unidos y Canadá.

 

"The economical situation won´t affect the growing plans for Six Flags México. Next Week (This Week) Six Flags CEO Mark Shapiro will visit the park to present the new investment program and the new atracctions for the park."

 

If there´s something new, I´ll tell you!

^HAHA! Great find!!!

 

To our Mexican Coaster Peeps...when does Six Flags Mexico usually open new rides? Early in the season like March, or more for main Summer?

 

Well. Usually the new rides and atractions are opened for "Semana Santa" (2 weeks that usually are given for vacation on March and/or April) That´s the most crowdwed weeks for the park in the year.

 

But sometimes, external situations change the plans for the park, and important atracctions have opened in different Months. For Example:

 

Medusa CCI Wooden Coaster- Opened on June caused by a delay on construcction process.

 

Superman El Ultimo Escape Chance-Morgan Hyper Coaster - Opened on November caused by a 2 year delay for political and corruption reasons.

 

Maybe this coaster will no be offically announced soon to avoid the same political problems, and maybe on January or February when the construcction is more advanced, they decide to announce.

HOLY CRAP! I might actually have a reason to go to Mexico rather than drugs and cheap booze! Since AZ does border Mexico I might as well take a trip down there sometime next year in my busy schedule.

 

Thanks for keeping us up-to-date and posting the official announcement.

With all of the less than satisfactory responses from the current Dark Knight coasters, I wonder if they will bump up the theming this time or just let it be. Only time will tell.

 

I think it was mentioned a while back that people may not be so critical of the ride there. Though it would be nice to see them add everything that is supposed to be there and not leave stuff out at the last minute like they did at Great Adventure.

lol

 

Well actually, there is a big theory about it.

 

Before Shapiro arrives to the company, the directors of Six Flags Mexico travelled to Magic Mountain to ride Tatsu and other coasters. They caw and compared all the coasters to see which kind of coaster fits better to SF Mexico.

 

The rummors told that the first B&M coaster for The park and the country, was on the designing process. Then Shapiro arrived, and we know the rest of the story.

 

No one knows what happened with the proyect, but maybe the answer can be given at 2010.

 

Well... NOW HERE ARE THE NEWS!!

Official press release in spanish:

 

LA MÁS EMOCIONANTE AVENTURA LLEGARÁ A SIX FLAGS MEXICO EN 2009: THE DARK KNIGHT COASTER

 

 

La nueva atracción de Six Flags Mexico que abrirá sus puertas en 2009

Es un juego en el interior de un edificio inmerso en la oscuridad con sorprendentes efectos especiales, basado en la película de Warner Bros. Pictures

Es una emocionante adición al paquete de entretenimiento de Six Flags Mexico

 

Ciudad de México, 13 de noviembre, 2008 – Siempre buscando sorprender y llamar la atención con nuevas experiencias para los invitados al parque, Six Flags Mexico se enorgullece en anunciar The Dark Knight Coaster, un juego mecánico en el interior de un edificio basado en el éxito en taquillas de Warner Bros. Pictures, The Dark Knight, el cual está programado para abrir sus puertas en la primavera de 2009.

 

The Dark Knight Coaster llevará el entretenimiento a un nivel completamente nuevo para los invitados de todas las edades, transformando a los pasajeros en ciudadanos de Gotham City – atrapados a la mitad de una ciudad bajo ataque y puesta de cabeza por The Joker. El viaje empezará cuando los invitados aborden un carro de tren de Gotham City y viajen a través de pasillos demenciales de giros, vueltas, subidas imprevistas e imágenes caóticas, mientras son atormentados por The Joker mismo. Cuando ellos intenten escapar al terror, su única esperanza es que el Guardián Silente de Gotham – Batman – pueda salvarlos.

 

The Dark Knight Coaster es más que solo un juego…es una aventura que utiliza la narrativa, movimiento físico, video, sonido y efectos especiales para traer a los invitados un emocionante juego, único en su especie, en completa oscuridad.

 

“Surgido del increíble éxito de la película, The Dark Knight Coaster será una excelente adición a lo que ya es una fuerte oferta de entretenimiento en Six Flags Mexico,” dijo Mark Shapiro, Presidente y CEO de Six Flags. “El juego combina la emoción de la películaThe Dark Knight con la reputación de la marca Six Flags de ser creadores de excitantes sensaciones. Familias y jóvenes por igual querrán experimentar este juego una y otra vez.”

 

Aunado a la colección más grande de montañas rusas en México, espectáculos de calidad internacional y el estreno de este año Magic Light Parade, The Dark Knight Coaster hará más sólido a Six Flags Mexico como el destino de entretenimiento familiar por excelencia en el país.

 

Compra un Pase Anual 2009 y experimenta The Dark Knight Coaster durante todo el año. Los Pases Anuales 2009 ya están a la venta.

 

¡Únete a la aventura con el nuevo THE DARK KNIGHT COASTER!
