I do think Six Flags would replace Silver Bullet with an RMC Raptor, or perhaps a Giant Discovery. Wildcat would NOT be RMC’d, as it’s a classic wooden coaster and does not have an optimal RMC layout— and Diamondback would probably be replaced in favor of an S&S 4D Free Spin. Wild Kitty is already being replaced with a Zamperla 80STD.

I got some park updates from this week from a live video one of the park managers did this past week on the Oklahoma Coaster Club FB page. The video since has been removed because a contractor in the background used a not for safe internet word. With the video representing the park the manager removed the video but will do more live videos before the park opening. Now for what was shared on that video.

I'm actually looking forward to the new Timbertown it is no longer going to be Paul Bunyan's Timbertown. I had no idea how bad of shape the area was it was pretty much a patch job through the years. Now the area is getting a complete remodel. I like what Six Flags will be doing to the area. New infrastructure new rides. Two of the rides are rides relocated from other Six Flag parks. The Ferris Wheel and the Airplanes. The existing rides and attractions in the area all being rethemed. The kids train will have a new name and be longer. The existing play structure is going to be completely redone and be called Hootie Treehouse. The School house that is currently being used as storage. They have plans for it and could not say at this time. There is new landscaping and theme-ing and new custom walkways. Not just pavement it will be decorative concrete walkways. I'm actually impressed with the work Six Flags has put into area.

They are reopening the video game room that used to be next to the Pizza place. ((The Outside facade says casino) The new party rooms have been constructed in the new video game room. The games are already in place and set up and it looks nice. The Chuck Wagon counter in Fort Frontier has been expanded and looks that they may have more registers added and where the registers were once located may be the Food Pick up. The counter area looks like what you would see at the Big parks in their main food areas to help move larger crowds during busy days. Also in the video was a sneak peak at the set for the new country show in the Opera House. It has to be the most elaborate set that I seen at Frontier City. It takes up the whole stage and the stage side of the Opera house. It looks amazing and rustic.

There were some questions about Silver Bullet One being a paint job, Another about the Greezed lighting trains and another if they were going to do any theming with the coaster. He did say no too the paint job this season. He heard something about the former Greezed Lightning train. On a different note that fans of the park will be excited what they are going to do too the coaster then teased and said he could not tell us yet. That thing is not the Greezed Lighting Train. My guesses they will turn the lights on in the tunnel they used during Fright Fest. Either that in the past they mentioned about doing theming elements in the queue line and the coasters infield. Maybe that will happen this season.

The rest of the park updates were that they were working on a few building facades that needed to be refreshed, interactive theme-ing elements through out the park. The log ride was getting new handrails. The new rails will have the rail closest to the canal track of the ride closed off so nobody (kids,or adults) can fall into the canal track. New carnival games that he could not share. Did ask about more food options but that is not an area he covers but could get with that department lead and find out for the next video. He did find out about a new Funnel Cake that the park will introduce he was excited about he is not that big on amusement park food. This one he said he will be purchasing on opening day. The park will have Pepsi again this year since the park is still in a multi year contract with Pepsi. He doesn't know the length of the contract. If Six Flags will just honor the multi year contract out it could get expensive to renegotiate a contract. You have to think besides FC there is 4 other parks with Pepsi so it could get pretty expensive to buy out of a contract and renegotiate a new contract.

Those are the updates that I found out this past week.

I drove by the park besides the updates I posted about last week I noticed today they have under construction a new Front Ticketing booth. This new booth is about 10 feet forward towards the parking lot. My guesses is they are re-configuring the front so they can fit it in with Six Flags admission protocols. Here is a photo of the new ticketing booth. I took this photo using a I phone from across the property.

In all honesty, I would be shocked if Six Flags put high end attractions like an RMC in this park anytime soon. I don't think a big coaster is coming to this park, if it is, it would years down the line, kind of what larrygator was saying. I see this park being more of a Great Escape like park, but thats just me..

I see this park getting some more thrilling rides than Great Escape but not huge like other six flags parks. Based on what I see about this park, it looks to be in between Great Escape and Six Flags St Louis in terms of how thrilling future additions go.

I can see a Star Flyer, an endeavor, and potentially a Discovery going in this park, but not a huge coaster.

Only time will tell.

There are a lot of fairly basic attractions that could make a huge impact at FC. The park is pretty basic in the rides department right now. Things I think could have a huge ROI here with fairly minimal SF expense include:
  • Shot/Drop Tower
  • Frisbee style ride
  • Endeavor
  • Screamin' Swing
  • Sky Screamer
  • Relocated Vekoma Boomerang
  • Relocated Wild Mouse
  • Disko
  • Any compact coaster, such as the Iron Shark Clones

So basically just about any major modern thrill ride, compact coaster relocation, or one of the cheap clones would be a huge hit at this park. The biggest attractions added within the last decade here have included a small Vekoma family suspended coaster and a relocated Zamperla Power Surge that apparently barely operates. The only major flats besides the aforementioned power surge are a set of flyers and a super loop...

I think a shot tower would do very well, especially if they called it Eruption.

They could even place it on Eruptions old site. Last time I was there the que line, and the concrete base for the ride were all still in place.
Bigger is not always better.

I have been following Oklahoma Coaster Club on Facebook there is a hand full of manager who follow and share on that page. They been sharing photos of off season work. Besides the revamped kids area which from the highway actually look better then what I expected Six Flags to do with the area. The photos they have shared of other areas of the park show alot of upgrades and refreshes around the park. I'm extremely impressed with how much money Six Flags and EPR is actually sinking into the park this off season. They moved things around refurbished some of the older rides and added more country theme-ing elements. Some interactive. I'm actually ready to check this place out on opening day. It will be the actual first full year and first of the newly acquired Theme parks to open the only one that recently opened of the newly added parks is Hurricane Harbor Phoenix. So this will be pretty intersting to see what this park has done in it's return as a Six Flags Park.

A couple notes:
-Timber Town (obviously)
-Free Wifi added to the park
-Six Flags is trying to keep the same charm Frontier City has while mixing their own stuff in
