I was a bit surprised by the Star Flyer rumor, because I had been hearing more about a Giant Frisbee/Giant Discovery flat more. Although I think either one would be cool, it'd be great for SFMM to amp up it's flats collection before a possible coaster in 2020.

Didn't winds used to shut down the old Observe Tower way back when? For times nobody could guess at, even back then.

So, would this/could this happen with a Star Flyer, such as is suggested, is possibly coming?

If the park finally gets a large flat, I would hope it isn't a starflyer. Though I can see why they would, being able to market it as the tallest in the world is a no-brainer marketing wise and would line right up with the whole Six Flags "5 record breakers for 2018" thingy. 10 days y'all =)

I think a star flyer would be an awesome addition to the park, especially positioned on top of the hill. Maybe 500 feet? =)

I'd rather see a Giant Frisbee as they are some of my favorite flat rides. That said, I wouldn't hate a record breaking Star Flyer and it would be a huge hit with the GP.

I'd definitely prefer a Giant Frisbee as I think they're fantastic rides overall that match thrills against fun, but I could see the draw of a massive Star Flyer too. I've ridden both the Texas and the New Jersey ones, and they're nerve-wracking. Aside from the height, the ride isn't up to much, but they certainly draw attention and set records.

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

Shoot.......... I'm with you on that one! Would love to see a polercoaster here in the West. Or with a little reinforcement, the sky tower can become a new thrill! !

Can you imagine a super star flyer using the tower? Holy crap my pants Batman! That would be AWESOME! SF is always finding a way to revamp the old to a new thrill. Well here you go.... SKY TOWER FLYER!

Superman sways when you are on Lex going up. I think that is crazy feeling!

This would be crazy scary!

Could have said "first Polercoaster anywhere," since the initial one in Florida is no closer to beginning construction than it was when it was announced 3 years ago.

I would LOVE to see the park take care of what they have, including fixing up Sky Tower. But, a Star Flyer would be awesome!
