I wonder if Maxx Force was planned for a while and Six Flags decided to move it to this park?


Maxx Force was designed to fit that tiny parcal of land. It was gonna launch over the train tracks but they rerouted the train to keep the launch around ground level. This coaster was 100% designed from the ground up for this park.

Speaking of maxforce, what's with the lack of Construction pictures? Have not seen a single picture of the progress since October

Amusement Insiders recently posted a construction video. Ride has not yet gone vertical, but footer and site work is being done.

The park just released a p.o.v of the new coaster on Facebook. Looks great, although a bit on the short side.

See it here...

Obviously short, but it looks insane. Especially the way the train flys under the RR tracks during launch.

I'm definitely interested to see how a real POV will compare to the animated one. Hopefully the queue line will have some of the racing-style decorations as well, similar to how the station itself looks!

Already looking into hotels thanks to this ride. Can't wait to get back to SFGAm even though I was just there in October.

I’m so excited to see another super intense launch coaster coming to the US. I’m generally unenthusiased by the “triple launch” trend...

That's smart. Availability for July should still be pretty good right now.
