I'm not sure how much one has to do with the other. I'm sure a contractor installed Supergirl, while the park maintenance team refurbishes Xcalibur.

So Six Flags released this picture of Supergirl, for those of you who haven't had the chance to see it yet. It looks very tacky amongst the rest of the Britannia section of the park. It really sticks out like a sore thumb. :lmao:

Look at that tiny bit of medieval theming peeking out on the right, LOL

It looks fine. Also you don't need to post about Supergirl not fitting the Britannia theme every time a picture of it comes out. You made that quite clear on here and on your "insider" page.

I mean, was anyone actually expecting it to fit the theme? This is the park that just as they changed Scooby Doo into Justice League and ran the risk of everything in DC plaza being themed to DC, narrowly escaped that horrific fate by turning Villains Cafe into JB's.

Themeing hasn't been a priority for Six Flags in at least 20 years. And why should it be. This isn't Disney/Universal, where storytelling and immersion are part of the experience. People come to Six Flags for the thrill rides alone, and Supergirl is a great addition to the park. The ride's entrance and queue are far nicer than what I ever expected for a relatively small addition. It also is a great way to re-energize the corner of the park that hasn't been touched in 19 years.

6. El Toro 7. Fahrenheit 8. Storm Runner 9. Thunderbird 10. Powder Keg

Wow, Chris. You're the first one to talk shit on how poorly you think the ride area looks, but coincidentally you're also the first person to know when it opens. I'm certain you'll make sure not to ride it since you hate the themeing so much.

I hope you have to move to Phoenix where your closest park is Coasters N' Castles. You'll get that consistent themeing experience you're chasing.
