I am SUPER excited for that ride.

However, that line looks really disappointing. No shade, minimal theming.

You do know this is a Six Flags park, right?

Not for me since spinning flat rides are a no-go to any food shoved down my esophagus within a 72hr time frame, but it'll be pretty to look at.

I get that, and I get queasy at a lot of spinning rides too, but these giant spinning disc rides don't bother me at all. There is enough forward motion that it kind of cancels out the spinning. So maybe give it a chance.

The small Huss ones focus on the spinning, but on the larger ones, the spinning is slow enough that you don't really feel it. The large ones feel more like a Screamin' Swing if you enjoy those.

LOL What are you on about? The ride doesn't open until Memorial Day weekend, they're still working on the ride area.

Also have to share this amazing photo by Dug, also from the group, looking down the Metropolis midway toward the ride:

So thrilled this will be open for Holiday In the Park! :lover: :lover:

God, I can't believe they're finally getting one of these. They're so awesome.

That thing looks massive at the end of the midway.

The video shows that each cycle will take about 5 minutes (including loading times) and its not a particularly large capacity ride. The picture shows the majority of the line has zero shade. Six Flags is primarily populated during the hottest times of the year.

I like shade. I think most people do. I don't understand why Six Flags management does not.

I'm not asking for Universal's Harry Potter style theming, but simply more of the canopy seen in the first photo. I understand they want to keep the sight-line open up front, so maybe they should have reconfigured more of the line to go around the back.
