TRIP REPORT 7/3/20   We arrived at the parking lot around 9:40am. There were no cars in front of us or behind us. We noticed a few people walking the path toward the park. We parked and took the

Walruses are back at SFDK!! 😍 This makes me really happy. The walruses were some of my favorites and I was really sad when Uquq had to go away. Glad she's coming back and she has a new fr

That's awful for the big parks to get a ride like that! I can understand the smaller ones, but SFGADV or SFOG! These 2 big parks are known to get big thrill rides not carnival rides. Maybe if they made it a 100ft super loop with 2 next to each other.

I just think it's ridiculous because Hammerhead shark is the exact same ride experience.

 

Yeah it's definitely verrrry similar to Hammerhead, I don't get this move either. Especially when what this park lacks the most is a) a drop ride (150 ft double shot themed to Bizarro), b) a dark ride, and c) a really cool log ride that goes through animal areas somehow

Exactly, and a more thrilling one at that given you are hanging by your OTSR! I'll take Hammerhead over a shuttle loop any day of the week. Even when I'm on my period.

You know, they could be removing the hammerhead for this attraction. The park has had a lot of problems with it over the years, and thanks to the safety belts its a pain in the butt to load/unload, so replacing it is defiantly an option.

It doesn't help that Superman is basically just a taller fancier Super Loop.

 

 

Have you ever been on S:UF? While I guess you could say it sort of looks like a "taller fancier Super Loop," the ride experience is incredibly different.

^Yea I totally agree! When I was at the park a couple weeks ago I heard some GP say "Superman is fun but I wish it wasn't like those Super loops!"

New Dare Devil Chaos Coaster Coming to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in 2015

VALLEJO, Calif. ― August 28, 2014 ― What goes around, comes around, and in the case of the new Dare Devil Chaos Coaster opening at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, guests will find an exciting new thrill ride guaranteed to get their adrenaline pumping.

 

Dare Devil Chaos Coaster is a single looping coaster that builds anticipation as riders seated back to back travel backwards and forwards until momentum takes them at top speed revolutions, only to stop upside down at 70 feet high and reverse direction.

 

“This is a great new addition to our line-up of world class rides and attractions, and is sure to be fun for all," said Don McCoy, park president. “What appears to be a simple track is really complex and riders will have a great time anticipating the inversion they know is coming."

 

Dare Devil Chaos Coaster features:

 

24 seats set in true face-off fashion, with guests seated back to back and face to face

360 degree revolutions

7 stories in height

Inverted hang time with riders suspended upside down

 

The new ride brings the number of coasters at the park to nine along with Medusa, Roar, V2, Kong, Boomerang, Cobra, Road Runner Express and SUPERMAN Ultimate Flight. Dare Devil is expected to open in spring 2015.

I love the fact that they're getting a new ride. This however is way too much like Hammer Head Shark and is clearly not a roller coaster. Unless they're taking out hammer head I think this is a mistake to add a carnival ride like this to a theme park.

^Well Hammerhead is old, they could take it out any day now. Maybe that'll be the site of the next new ride?

 

I don't like that they're calling this a coaster, I definitely won't be counting it as one.

 

I'm willing to suspend judgement for now until this thing opens. Maybe it'll be a good addition to the park. Looks like it's going over behind V2? Seems like a good place for another ride.
