I would hardly call these the parks marquee rides. To be far those are TC, X2, Tatsu, Goliath, YOLOcoaster, and Superman. I would say that the rest of the roller coasters support those. If one of those 6 were down for any length of time during peak season, that would be an issue.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I was speaking more as a whole, not this year or any year specifically. The last time I was at the park was mid-July 2013, only a year after Lex Luthor opened, however Lex was being rehabbed the entire week I was there. That's about as marquee as it got at the time, and that's not the only example over the years. Even a simple heads up would be nice, like Bill said, so it's not a roll of the dice.

Wait so do you guys think Rev, GL, or Apocalypse will be open during the time I visit, between July 1-10? That would be a bummer if Rev wasnt open considering I never got the credit and really wanted to ride

Six Flags does say that an attraction is temporarily closed on the website. Of course this is not always 100% accurate. Currently Green Lantern and the Revolution are noted that they are closed.

YOLOcoaster has been down to 1 train for months. All I’ve heard from my leads and supervisors is that they are behind schedule and that the second one should be back Soon™️. Yay summer refurbs.

Yeah I have noticed that it has been 1 train the last few times I was at the park. I figured it would be back to 2 for the summer season. I always do this ride first and I am a gold member. I don't think I would wait for it unless I could knock it out right away.

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

I was there on Monday and yolo coaster was still down to one train. And the whole cyclone Bay are was still open. I mean the only thing back there is apocalypse and the little sad feeling ice cream place. Hopefully that are gets something big for 2019. By the way, now that the structure for crazanity is up, does anyone know how long it has to test for?

What’s even wrong with Revolution? Is it that serious to where it won’t be operating during july 4 weekend. Also, what’s going on with GL too?

Rev: Chain replacement so who knows how long it will take.

GL: something big, it won’t be open for a very very long time. Essentially SBNO status now.
