(Six Flags Cypress Adventures in the year 2004 is now up on the workshop! https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1989607625 )

 

2003/2004/2005

 

2003 was another off year for Six Flags Cypress Adventures with no new additions, just minor updates around the park like fresh paint on buildings and a new park entrance sign featuring the up to date Six Flags logo

At the end of the 2003 season, the least popular ride at the park, The Grand Wheel, closed. Six Flags teased that 2004 was going to bring a new ride type never seen before at any other park.

Six Flags introduced their 2004 addition as Superman: Ultimate Flight, which is an S&S Screamin Swing, an all new flat ride type.

Superman was a hit with thrillseekers throughout the 2004 and 2005 season.

 

In 2005, once again, Six Flags did not add anything to the park, but among park fans, rumors were stirring up.

 

According to rumors, Six Flags was planning to remove Studio Splash Effect to make way for an all new B&M Hyper coaster for 2006.

2005

 

Fans of Six Flags Cypress Adventures were excitingly waiting for Six Flags to announce what was to come in 2006, with the rumor of a B&M Hyper.

 

Around the end of summer, Six Flags made an announcement, but it was an announcement that no one was expecting and caught everyone off guard.

 

On September 12th, Six Flags announced that at the end of the 2005 season, they were going to close and demolish two of their properties: Six Flags AstroWorld and Six Flags Cypress Adventures. The last day for Six Flags Cypress Adventures is Sunday, November 6th, 2005.

 

Multiple reasons were given for the closure and demolition of the park, such as attendance being at an all time low for the past 3 years, and the park was in a bad location. Guests have to travel around the mountains to get from the city of Chattanooga to Six Flags.

Fans of Six Flags Cypress Adventures were absolutely devastated at the news. Some were denying that the park would close, some started to go to the park as much as possible to document every detail of the park with videos and pictures, and some started protesting the closure and demolition around the parking lot entrance.

Six Flags Cypress Adventures last day

 

Hi! My name is Tyler. I've been going to this park since it opened and its very sad to see such a good park go. This is a trip report from the last day ever for Six Flags Cypress Adventures. On my way into the parking lot, there were a lot of people protesting the park's closure.

Excalibur's line is extremely long so I think I'll try to catch it last.

Runaway Mountain's queue is full of people wanting to ride it one last time.

20200208230840_1.thumb.jpg.7f21094b1db5f56e5ac2ddb104cc5f2c.jpg

I wish that B&M Hyper rumor was real and was replacing this ride instead of tearing the park down...

The Last Stand just reopened from a breakdown so I took advantage of the short line. Good thing I did because the queue was full just 30 minutes later.

Its a standard vekoma boomerang coaster, so this won't be missed as much as the other coasters.

20200208232712_1.thumb.jpg.d41752d64ecc3b3aa744a10fd6ce1ebd.jpg

Everyone else has the same idea. I actually was extremely lucky to get in line just before the queue closed. I'm actually one of the very last people to ride Excalibur!

I had a lot of fun on Excalibur. I actually wished the ride would never end. But it did sadly. At this point, Six Flags Cypress Adventures is now closed. For good.

I wish I could....

Goodbye Six Flags Cypress Adventures! Thanks for 27 years of memories and fun!

December 3rd, 2005

 

Its been nearly a month since the park closed its doors and demolition began the very next day. Everyone was invited to enter Six Flags Cypress Adventures one last time for the auction they are hosting to sell off park elements.

20200209201314_1.thumb.jpg.9efe71b486c177baba796aa36b89a581.jpg

Never thought I would go through this entrance again

20200209201336_1.thumb.jpg.f28944018282abf4bc9e06610bd9da00.jpg

NOOOOOOO!!!! NOT THE LAST STAND!!!!

20200209201357_1.thumb.jpg.24076c6de56934b7e6c9d8ba39571622.jpg

Taz Twisters is already gone. Its space is being used for the auction.

20200209201413_1.thumb.jpg.f756220546fa5d39fac5d97ed7ecbdc3.jpg

I really want this one. Its the original park entrance sign!

20200209201429_1.thumb.jpg.e6d542ac9a910dc4d1ad749c61241fdf.jpg

More signs

20200209201446_1.thumb.jpg.67dd6e0503a8df18aecf3c37716cfcee.jpg

The real main attraction of the auction is one of the original Excalibur trains. One was already donated to the National Roller Coaster Museum.

20200209201618_1.thumb.jpg.ac44dbe1dc223304b6a6bf828458f557.jpg

They held separate auctions for each car in this train. I heard that the front car sold to a very dedicated fan for over $10,500!!

20200209201629_1.thumb.jpg.c765a5cac5550081504597ea75290920.jpg

Again, more signs

20200209202019_1.thumb.jpg.8fba5c0325ee5b2f5223cd4611797c62.jpg

There was a wall blocking off areas that they didn't want people accessing during the auction

20200209202408_1.thumb.jpg.a8a4e97a4a04c016dc49e395e93be2a2.jpg

Joker's Spinsanity was apparently scrapped.

20200209202420_1.thumb.jpg.3e6472d75934b4fccd4f63f8ae0abfa8.jpg

Batman The Ride is being taken apart. Pretty clear its being relocated.

Runaway Express is being scrapped. I was actually allowed to walk around the track (what was standing still)

20200209202637_1.thumb.jpg.4b9a4eb8f34f13cb3929c6d14349162a.jpg

Pretty cool that I was allowed to climb the lift!

Helix

20200209202747_1.thumb.jpg.5f6651e5564d30c9a7f7254f70d4b4c8.jpg

The track after the 2nd lift is missing. That's actually all that I saw for this report. After the Runaway Express tour, I was told my tour time is up and I left the park for the last time. Not before I snagged the original Cypress Adventures sign for $160!

April 9th, 2006

 

After over 5 months of demolition, the last structure to come down is Excalibur. It hasn't been touched since demolition started up until this part.

 

The date that Six Flags Cypress Adventures officially died is April 9th, 2006.

 

20200209203244_1.thumb.jpg.be7c3ac45be8708f978bd9be44a58093.jpg

 

A few months later, this plan from 2005 was leaked out. It shows Studio Splash Effect removed and replaced with a hyper like rumored:

 

20200209203603_1.thumb.jpg.7c143b304a5aa444960b0a76d2496cf5.jpg

 

It turns out Six Flags actually was planning to build a hyper, but following the decision to close the park, Six Flags sent the hyper to La Ronde instead since it was already being manufactured. This caused an outrage among fans of Six Flags Cypress Adventures.

 

The fate of all the rides at Six Flags Cypress Adventures are as listed:

 

Gunslinger: Relocated to new Asia park

Rodeo: Relocated to new Asia park

Runaway Express: Scrapped

Cypress Plunge: Scrapped, logs sent to various Six Flags parks

July 2020

 

Almost 15 years has passed since Six Flags Cypress Adventures has shut its doors and got torn down.

 

The land the park used to sit on has been converted into a local park, and there are actually quite a handful of things from Six Flags that are still standing on the property. Here is the visit to Six Flags Cypress Adventures 15 years later.

20200215222207_1.thumb.jpg.e047f6b9a4f5e314aaaf16d69ebb9333.jpg

The original park entrance is still standing. Six Flags Cypress Adventures is now "Cypress Park"

20200215222231_1.thumb.jpg.09d736769f44ff0e031c60d2b3ebb872.jpg

This entrance area remained untouched during demolition.

20200215222240_1.thumb.jpg.2437c30f3eefcb445ba5acaac93d4099.jpg

Its now hard to believe that this view used to have several roller coasters and rides

20200215222303_1.thumb.jpg.7ee9684a0a6d8506e1541067376ae2b2.jpg

Some of the queues were redone into picnic canopies. This used to be Gunslinger's queue

20200215222320_1.thumb.jpg.82c54b1a63bf2a7b539ec38f698245fa.jpg

Rodeo's former queue is also still standing

20200215222341_1.thumb.jpg.e1734be161e1dafc957da934e11497e8.jpg

The only structure that remained unchanged after demolition is this eating area, which is still operational.

20200215222355_1.thumb.jpg.b0440633105a7055c201101266d2d310.jpg

Cypress Plunge's station was repurposed into bathrooms

20200215222412_1.thumb.jpg.c104786f54a27ef3112ba46060f871af.jpg

This view used to have a log flume drop in it. Also its interesting that the water wheel is still standing by the station building

20200215222454_1.thumb.jpg.349d2e73bba428c7a657af8d5800451c.jpg

Bugs Bunny Fort Fun playground from the Looney Tunes town is still here. It was relocated to the former Acrophobia spot.

20200215222523_1.thumb.jpg.8ee4a43ad58453232437dbaecd164b88.jpg

Its now time to leave this park behind us once and for all. Six Flags Cypress Adventures held many memories for locals of Chattanooga, and it was a sad day when it closed for good.

 

 

Thank you everyone for following this storyline of Six Flags Cypress Adventures. I enjoyed this park a lot and I hope you all did too!

Summer 2021

 

16 years after the closure of Six Flags Cypress Adventure, Former employees of the park came together and pitched an idea to the current owner of the property: A fair themed to the defunct park.

 

In May of 2021, Cypress Park was temporarily rebranded back into Cypress Adventure and rented carnival rides placed along the only stretch of path that Six Flags never demolished. In addition, people who brought items from the auction after the park closed put their items on display.

 

The fair was a success, bringing in thousands of people wishing to visit Six Flags Cypress Adventures again. Lets view a trip report of someone who visited Cypress Adventure since it first opened...

 

20200718230001_1.thumb.jpg.af527d6ca3656c886cf463a2901b693d.jpg

They put up the original Cypress Adventure sign from when the park first opened. This view alone is filling me with nostalgia!

20200718230018_1.thumb.jpg.95cce0fab79fa7a5eff51dbaaf775b2c.jpg

I still think its weird to look at this view without a drop tower at the other end.

20200718230103_1.thumb.jpg.bde13f59814248674c9c21d91909903a.jpg
