^ I politely disagree. I believe they are putting the skywarps in parks with minimal space and space is no issue at SFA.

Skywarps are going to be everywhere, it has nothing to do it with space. It's that they cost 2M and SF can call them a coaster. They will be the new superloop of the chain. With 3 variants hopefully SF mixes up the models.

The small indy parks should jump all over buyung Skywarps, as well as RMC Raptors. Getting both over a 3 or so year period would be a nice 1,2 for places like KK, HW, Compounce, etc..

Can anyone link me to this ride name survey? I haven’t gotten any surveys despite telling SF to send me all their notices they have.

If you put your real age in that may be a factor because I don't get them either but here's the link:https://feedback.sixflags.com/advisorypanel/startsurvey.aspx?s=heroes&cid=%%cid%%&e=sjackson%40son.umaryland.edu&utm_source=surveyemails&utm_medium=email&utm_content=subscriber_id:&utm_campaign=2018-01%20Heroes%20and%20Villains%20Survey%20-%20Wave%209

^Thanks! Interesting that they included Marvel characters, I wonder what they're trying to achieve with that since SF has never mad a marvel-character themed ride (to my knowledge). Plus, I'd assume that obtaining the rights to use a Marvel character would be pretty expensive.

I don't think they're going to add one. I think it may have just been for the purpose of seeing which characters are more relevant.

^It was pretty much all of the Major ones give or take a few characters.

I took a brief visit to the park today and it was pretty crowded. It happened to be a company day for Lindsay automotive. To make maters worse Halfpipe, Zoomazon Falls, Bonzai Pipelines and the slides at the pool were all closed. The wave pool was also closed for an extended period of time due to someone getting sick. Around 5:30 a very weak storm rolled in and drove a decent portion of the crowd out of the park. This led to the dry park being much more manageable. Outside of atrocious single train ops on ROAR, everything was fine in the dry park.

BTW, the electric work seems to be done.

Who knows what the real thought process is in reality. Think about it... These are small flat rides that only have one train. The capacity is low. So these may do better at smaller parks like a Discovery Kingdom or America. Also, lets keep in mind the Skywarp added to Discovery Kingdom is one of the first in the USA. They may want to see if the public is even going to be interested. They may since its new.

Also, this park may have a lot of land but how much of that land is actually available for turning into midway? That is something that most of us do not know.
I may not know everything about coasters... what I do know is they are my life...

Queue times is saying Batwing is operational. Can anybody confirm that it has reopened since being closed for a while?
