Six Flags Over Texas (SFOT) Discussion Thread

P.. 420: Pirates of Speelunker Cave announced for 2022!

Recommended Posts

I wonder how she ended up with only her top half on the tunnel. Did she fall on a support or sharp edge at a velocity that could have caused such a gruesome injury? Anyways, I wonder why the ride op never tried to get the ride stopped.

 

It was reported a few pages back she struck a steel support beam before landing on top of the tunnel.

I just hate this whole situation. So many people were affected by this accident. I'll just be glad when its all over and in the past. I cant imagine the guilt the employees deal with that were working NTAG that day.

Goodbye Looney Tunes USA, Hello Bugs Bunny Boomtown.

 

Containing 4 New Attractions

Looney Tunes Adventure Camp (Fort Playground)

Taz Tornado (Kids Swing Ride)

Marvin the Martian Space Rockets (Self Powered Rocket Ride)

Daffy Duck Bucket Blaster (Zamperla Water Mania)

 

 

And something called Bugs Bunny Cloud Bouncer. I think It's just a relocated/renamed Cloud Bouncer ride

 

 

And here's the video

So for all the people that thought Camp Snoopy in California was going to add a Water Mania, You were right about the ride, Just wrong about the park.

Kids area this year, new coaster next year!

 

 

That actually could be a possibility....

Well of course it is! The last one they got was NTG and technically that wasn't even a new coaster, it was just an upgrade. And they removed boomerang, so they need a texas sized thrill coaster! Bets anyone? I think it will be a wing coaster. I know that thats kind of stereotypical expected, but I truly think that that is the most likely possibility and that its going to happen.

I know this may sound a bit odd considering Six Flags hasn't bought one since 2008, but how about a compact GCI? Considering the park is well developed, there's not much room for a large coaster, and because of the fact that Judge is the only woodie left there, I think it would be a great move to put in a compact, quick, exciting, and relatively cheap GCI woodie near La Vibora and the Flume Ride, and possibly all the way over to the area between NTAG and Titan. I think that would be a perfect addition for SfOt in 2015, but that's just my opinion.

We can't discount the ongoing rumors it's some sort of 4th dimension coaster- Perhaps a Zac Spin, or even better, one of those awesome S&S free spin coasters Robb just rode at the S&S plant (the prototype). But again, so many rumors have been thrown around it's too soon to guess. A wingrider would be nice, and a GCI. IMHO, anything would be nice to replace Flashback. It will be interesting to see how it all plays out until the 2015 announcement!

I've heard mostly negative reviews over Zac Spins, but I would not be surprised to see that come to SFOT. Flashback's footprint is perfect for a Zac Spin, and its in the DC Comics area so dubbing it Green Lantern would work too. Its an easy and cheap clone.

It certainly would fit in nicely in that area; however the footprint is so small they could easily add a few more flats there, too. With that in mind, a DC Universe expansion wouldn't be out of the question. Two major renovative projects back to back seasons, like a park overhaul. That rumor has been thrown around a bit too.

 

On a different note, I feel that the kids expansion will be a hit with the kids. The promotional images look very nice and the ride selection is great, too. Definately a much needed addition to the park.

I'm thinking Six Flags has realized how low capacity the Zac Spins are (and not to mention painful). Do the GP even like Green Lantern? Or do they find it just as painful as coaster enthusiasts do?

I don't think their standards are as high as ours are so it doesn't really bother them as much as us. We are very familiar with many manufacturer and they aren't, so we have expectations. I'm sure Six Flags has realized the capacity issue, but I'm not sure if their quite over the ride. IMHO they might try to solve the capacity issue first before they ditch future installations.

I'd like to see the people in charge of decision making out there spend some time at Cedar Point and take some notes. Then decide on a new coaster.

Something they really should invest in, is a makeover on ol' Judge Roy. It is like riding a one minute long car wreck. It isn't fun anymore. I used to ride it for nostalgic reasons, and for my sons. But they don't even like riding it anymore. It hurts. It also really needs a paint job. It is the first thing people see when pulling into the park. With a little love, riders will return. Now, we pull in and look at it to see how many people are standing in line to ride it. If we see a line at all, we know it's gonna be full crowd.

I won't ride it anymore. There isn't enough ibuprofen out there to get me back on it. I hear that was what eventually became of the old Texas Giant. The last time I rode it was in 2001. It was rickety, but not painful. I liked that about it. I heard it got to be really rough. Judge Roy has a good 10 years on Texas Giant. If only RMC would give a shake of their magic wand to it. That's wishful thinking...
