Agreed. I suppose I'm an SFOG purist, but that section of the park is so beautiful to me.I feel like any addition near the Mine Train would detract from an area of the park that helps set it apart from other ones in the chain. Though, you will not hear me complain about Acrophobia...

As for me, bring on the flats. A well-rounded park is better than a lopsided park.


Flats would be great if they hadn't neglected the coaster collection so much in recent years. With the exception of Deja Vu in 2001 (and we all know how well that turned out), SFOG had been adding coasters every 2-3 years since 1990. But since Goliath in 2006, all we've gotten has been a Eurofighter in 2011, which to me isn't all that great. It's hard to not be jealous of all the other SF parks with launched coasters or RMC creations, etc.

Yeah, my park is one of those. Not happy at all. Wouldn't have been so bad if it were part of a package of rides.

I have mixed feelings over these Super Loops. They aren't very thrilling and tend to break down a lot. However, they are making a decent return and look impressive. It will be successful and hopefully stand as a good step on the stairway to a new coaster for the future.

Yeah, that's what I think. Cheap out this year for better things next year. They are saving a ton putting these up at multiple parks.

The name of the ride is confirmed to be Joker's Chaos by Six Flag's shoddy computer skills, leaving a URL out in the open for everyone to see.

SFOG has one of the most well rounded coaster collections you can find, and the really could use more non coaster rides. As long as they don't have to remove something like Crime Wave to build it I'm ok with this addition.

Coming in 2015: It’s epic. It’s chaotic. It’s devious. And, it’s waiting for you and 23 other riders! It’s the all-new THE JOKER Chaos Coaster. Experience the insanity of facing off against one another and rocking back and forth through seven stories of looping mayhem. It may seem like the madness is slowing down, but you are about to be thrown for a loop, upside down, 72 feet in the air. And, it’s not over yet. Get ready to be sent in the opposite direction for even more looping havoc.

If twists and turns are more to your liking, get ready for a thrill by spinning through an adventure bigger than ever before on the all-new Harley Quinn Spinsanity. Hop on this classic ride with your entire family with a new twist, as you challenge other riders to see who succeeds to spin around the most then stand up without feeling dizzy.

The new THE JOKER Chaos Coaster and Harley Quinn Spinsanity will be located in the Gotham City area of the park along with the likes of BATMAN: The Ride, Mind Bender and more!

THE JOKER Chaos Coaster and Harley Quinn Spinsanity will transform the iconic and guest popular Gotham City section of the park in 2015. The park’s 12th roller coaster will pit you against 19 other riders as you rocket up and down the sides of the seven story roller coaster before ending up suspended at the top looking straight down at the ground. Harley Quinn Spinsanity will spin, twist and roll you and your family each time you take on Gotham City’s second newest challenge.
Facts: THE JOKER Chaos Coaster

Twenty rides will start by “facing-off” against each other
Rocket up to seven stories high, forward and backwards through a bedlam of loops
Hang in peril, upside down at 72 feet high before the coaster releases you to even more loops of mayhem
The coaster is set the guest-popular BATMAN™: The Ride and Mind Bender roller coasters in Gotham City

Facts: Harley Quinn Spinsanity

Spin-sanity rules on this classic ride experience
Twist, spin and roll around a cycle of fun in Gotham City’s newest challenge
Riders spin around as many times as they can handle, as fast as they can handle as the seven cars rotate around the circular track
The ultimate ride to experience with your family to create new memories that will last a lifetime

^Yeah........ :|
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

A flat ride expansion to Gotham is exactly what I think was needed. I imagine the rides will go where the stadium for the former Batman show is. It would be a definite improvement to an area lacking for so many years.
