Nitro’s description says that too. Six Flags is just dumb.

Wow, Six Flags. All of those things are really great.   We really are living in a fantasy world...

^Them's fightin' words my friend

 

Seriously - I doubt they would do anything with Shockwave. I know plenty of enthusiasts would lose their minds if such were to happen

 

David - most of those enthusiasts have already lost their minds

Sounds pretty awesome for Six Flags, who is the manufacturer?

 

They are all listed in the post above. Mainly Sally and Oceaneering.

Oops, my bad.

 

No worries just letting you know!

 

Glad to see Six Flags going with something like this. We know Oceaneering can make some pretty sweet ride systems and we all know what Sally can bring!

This should be fun. Very happy to see a dark ride coming to a Six Flags. Another place to get in the AC!!!

 

I agree--this is the most intriguing of the announcements outside of the RMC coasters.

I find it strange how the Over Texas version of the ride advertises 360-degree spinning but not the St. Louis version. Maybe SFStL simply forgot to mention it in their announcement, but if it wasn't a mistake, then I guess that SFOT's version will be better by default.

Excited about the ride and the mechanical systems behind it. Would have preferred a better/unique theme than yet another DC comics-based ride, but if that's what sells tickets I can understand their business intentions.

 

Hopefully they invest toward maintaining this dark ride, unlike how they've let Yosemite Sam's go...

To be fair, Yosemite Sam is over 22 years old... Considering that, I'd say that the park staff has done a very good job of maintaining the ride. Sure, it's very beaten and that's definitely noticeable, but I'm sure it's not the easiest attraction to maintenance.

I guess we'll have to wait a little longer for a new coaster announcement

 

And, in their defense, since it's named "Justice League" - they can definitely add more features to it later on after the movie(s) come out. But, we ARE talking about Six Flags... I think it will bring more audience to the park for sure.

 

Next year they'll announce Justice League: Battle for Metropolis... BACKWARDS.

 

(I keed, I keed. Or do I?)

I understand that not every ride can be a thrill ride, but it'd be awesome if Justice League would incorporate some spinning elements like Men in Black, Cat in the Hat, Spiderman, Forbidden Journey...other dark rides, or the jerkiness and excitement of Toy Story Mania. Either way, probably any indoor ride at SFoT is a win and if it's done well at all then I'll probably visit the ride more than once.

 

My main fear is that families that have visited Disney and Universal parks will ride this and then shrug it off as nothing special. At the same time, I think those of us here realize that this is actually something quite special for Six Flags and since SFoT is the Six Flags park I visit the most - I'm pretty excited for Justice League!

I really hope these are a hit here and a St Louis, I'd love to see every Six Flags get a proper dark ride.

 

I agree with this. I think every Six Flags park could use at least one good dark ride that everybody can enjoy.

I haven't tried to go to non-summer dates at SFOT since I was a kid, but I don't feel satiated with the number of summer visits I was able to take this year. What are the crowds like for September, Frightfest and Holiday? Any weekends better than others? What isn't open during those times?
