It's not that strange. They don't want to announce a new attraction until they are ready to. We do the same thing with games we are currently working on.

It's about a couple who spend their time traveling around cool places, riding cool rides and meeting cool people. "Rob & Elissa The sims"

Ok, so some strange things have been going on, or at least that I think so, have been going on at Six Flags.

Driving along I-25 the other day, a friend said that Tower of Doom (Intamin drop) was running, but with people on it.

Also, driving by on my way to Arizona, non of the lights were on. This is strange because usually because every time I drive by at night, there are usually lights on Mind Eraser and Twister, but nothing this time.

Also, if their new attraction was going to be a coaster, wouldn't you expect construction to begin by now? Or even an annoucement?

I didn't notice any cranes, but hopefully I'll see something more when I pass by on the 30th or 29th.

Don't get your hopes up for a coaster, I am sure track would have arrived by now.

Have you been by the park much in the winter? I know during the summer, CP always has lights on TTD, but during the winter they have them turned off. I would imagine they are just saving money on the electrical bill.

I go by every year in the winter. This is the first time they have been off.

Every one of the coasters added since Boomerang I believe didn't get track or start construction until like March. Sure it is a short timeline but the problem is that you can face big problems with winter construction.

Besides we aren't that likely to get anything big enough to take more than a month or two to put together.

My guess is that they might have a chance at some of the small rides at Astroworld and might be considering those for placement in the park.

Personally I hope that we get something good from Astroworld. Maybe one of the coasters and a few nice flats but Elitches seems to be the red headed step child of the "flagged" parks often.

I see Elitch's as more of a "test grounds" for coasters and rides. Like Halfpipe, and The Flying Coaster, etc. I wouldn't be suprised if it were something new or something that has never been built.

Something that I think could possiably happen is a wild mouse. Like a portiable one, like Cheeta Chase at The Lost Continent.
