Six Flags Mexico (SFM) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

^ Maybe March of next year, and WFChris organizes, from weekend to weekend?

Just a suggest, Chris. I would definitely be there for that. Especially the revisit to my #600, Medusa!

 

You know, I could probably design a pretty rad trip. As it is I'm going to Mexico City, Guadalajara, and Puerto Vallarta in March this year. Caaaannnnttt waiiiiittttt.....

 

Kinda hoping that Sky Screamer will be open in a month. Kinda doubt it but....actually I kinda think it might happen!

You know Jesus, always playing tricks!

According to Six Flags Mexico’s Twitter, Superman has given its last rides and will be leaving the park (based on rough translation). They have replied to a few comments under the Tweet saying informa

LOL Screamscape fell for it too.

^Looks great! I hope they keep dishing these rides out to as many SF parks as they can, they're really fun rides.

True. The views and the height combined with the freedom of the chairs make them great rides!

Awesome! It totally looks like ours in Vancouver

(AtmosFEAR) as well as the same ride cycle.

Although ours still spins down, to about 20 feet

above the base/foundation. Minor thing, tho.

 

Congrats to SFMexico! Ole' indeed!

Saw this on Screamscape. SkyScreamer just had its media day, and it sounds like they're already teasing a new ride that will come in 2016. If they're teasing this early, that could be a good sign .

2015 - SkyScreamer - (3/9/15) A new webpage based on covering the coasters and rides of Mexico, http://www.thecoasterzone.com, has posted a video from the opening media day of the Sky Screamer at Six Flags Mexico. Check it out below!

I'm not quite sure what was going on based on the still photos at the start of the video, but it looks like they invited a biker gang into the park to help open the new ride. LOL! In all seriousness though, Six Flags management has been showing Six Flags Mexico some serious love over the past couple of years with the addition of the Joker spinning coaster, the Medusa Steel Coaster transformation and now Sky Screamer. According to interviews with Brett Petit (Six Flags' SVP Marketing) an announcement for another very exciting new attraction for the park will be made this August that he considers to be even more exciting than the new Sky Screamer.

^ Well, it's a nice break from powered coasters, hmm?

 

By the way, how was SkyScreamer, WFChris?

Did you get the chance to ride it?

Any photos of it to share?

Hello TPR! It took me a while to find some spare time to share with you this little photo report of SkyScreamer's media day at SFM. I work at an institution for kids with down syndrome and we had the luck of being invited to the grand opening! Let's go to the photos:

What's inside this cool envelope?

I've got a ticket to ride!

Good afternoon, you beautiful!

The "biker gang" LOL! They're actually a rock-pop band called "Moderatto". They're very famous in Latin America.

First cycle!

I really like the revamped Six Flags logo. What do you guys think?

You were able to be photographed on the blue carpet after your ride. A little bit dizzy but really happy!

Batman's new colors! The yellow of the track is a more intense shade than before. Looking great! Hope it's open soon.

The new tallest attraction in Mexico City.

I also filmed the countdown and first cycle, take a look:

 

 

 

 

My impressions:

 

It's an amazing addition to the park, the views from above are fabulous! You spin really fast and some people might get dizzy. The operations seemed a little bit slow, let's hope they improve with the practice. It opened to the GP on saturday and the lines were incredibly long! I calculate the wait was about 2:30 hrs.

Also, they expanded the batman shop that now also serves an an exit for the new ride.

 

That's all folks!

Sounds like a ride that will do them Justice and put them in a League of their own and arm them for Battle, But I'm guessing. It's a Shot in the Dark.

If it is that would kind of be a letdown. When they said they would be getting some awesome ride for 2016 I assumed it wouldn't be an upcharge attraction.

 

Well, last year besides Medusa they also opened Slingshot, which is an upcharge ride and was not announced until they finished construction. I'm guessing the SkyCoaster will open this year without any special announcement.
