This looks like this will be a booth to pick up photos. I'm assuming for the new Kids coaster Frankie's Mine train.

The is ride used to be the Tom's Tom's but now is rethemed to Bubba's Honey Swings. Now the Owl Tree House which you see in the background has been rebuilt. It was a toddler play structure but now it's an all age play structure.

El Ranchero I'm not sure what this will be the Barn doors have been permanently shut off with a new smaller door. I'm thinking maybe some type of snack stand or gift sales window.

one of the new magic tricks in the Two Johns Saloon Magic Show. This show is very interactive with the audience and if you want to embarrass a family member I recommend catching one of these magic shows in the Two Johns Saloon.

The following pictures is some random photos of the shows. Also photos showing the Diamond/Diamond Elite Reserved seating rules.

This is a new interactive theme element. Uncle Bart he shares his Restroom issues. There is a lot of flatulence and funny sayings from Uncle Bart. The Outhouse sits along Renegade Rapids Road in front of the Crack Axle Canyon Train Station.

Log Ride had some Theme Scenes add to it's first turn in the back ground. That Water wheel looks like it had work done on it that it may actually turn with a new Canal built entering the bottom of the drop to the log ride.

By the looks of the changes, they’re actually treating the park a little better than I expected!

 

Six Flags does have the ability to make nice and detailed theming. They just chose not to for most of their parks most likely to save money for bigger rides.

 

This looks like its going to be a great season for Frontier City!

but the park still uses pepsi?I thought they had switched to coke.

I asked about why they still have Pepsi they are in contract with them. The manager I spoke with didn’t know the specifics on the contract. The park had to honor that contract. I expect them once the contract is over with Pepsi they will eventually change to Coke products.

I notice a lot of the rides in the park received new operator control panels. When I say every square inch of the park was invested in this off season. It shows everywhere in the park. Six Flags and EPR are doing great things with their newly added parks.

This week I noticed the park added some shaded comfort areas for guests waiting on family members riding rides. Also they added more Cubby-hole shelfs to Wildcat to place your stuff. Six Flags is doing some awesome stuff with this park. They are showing they actually do care this time around all the changes I seen this season. WOW!! So much care put into the park.

Here is closer look at Frankie's Mine train at Frontier City's The parks 6th and newest Coaster. (Since we found out this past week through a membership park newsletter that Six Flags considers Brain Drain A Larson Looper is indeed a coaster and not a flat ride. ) The new Zamperla Family Coaster arrived a few weeks ago and is sitting in the parking lot wrapped up like a Christmas present. Construction of the ride I guess will take the next couple of weeks.

The other day I received in my email box the Frontier City Pass/Membership newsletter. One of the articles in the newsletter was about the parks Larson Looper "Brain Drain". Yup didn't take long for Six Flags to do a Six Flags kind of thing and refer Brain Drain as a Looping Coaster. The whole article was making the coaster the parks 6th coaster. All I can do is just shake my head. I knew it was going to happen sooner or later. Looks like it was sooner.

One of the new Stars added to the possible new sign for the entrance. I'm going to like the new 3-D graphic sign.

You enter your email in the log in screen then you are on the parks Wi-Fi.

Frontier City each week just keeps surprising me with even more updates to the park. Today noticed the park activated their park wide free guest Wi-Fi. To boot they added a shaded free mobile charging station to the the Go karts station. Wild West Water Works the parks attached small water park will have a new Six Flag-ish type of entrance. The whole 4W gift shop/emporium is getting updates inside and out. They changed up the new entry which is still under construction as you can see in the attached photo. The Go Fast Pass DE skip the line pass has changed this week to a more permanent card system. Also the Frog Hopper ride in the kids area is now open as well as construction for the kids area Ferris Wheel queue line area under construction. Each week more surprises pop up Six Flags is spending a lot of money on the newly added park.

Ground markings and stakes in a large area of the park showed up with "SF 2020 165'." Goes from the back side of the mountain (Quick Draw) To Winged Warrior Down into the Concert/Picnic Area) I say it could be a Star Flyer but why would they start construction now on a Flat Ride? Could the park be getting a coaster?

Hmmm. If it is a coaster, I wonder what type it would be. Based on past records of starting construction, I’m not sure that it’s a flat ride. But it seems like a kind of small space for a coaster, especially if it’s 165 feet (what I think it would be based on the markings). I would think it would have to be a long, narrow coaster.
