You always get that person who has had a bad experience with the park, and swears that he'll never come back. But nine times out of ten, yes he will be back. If people are angry at something, they are more likely to say something about it than if they had a great time. Out of the thousands of people who visit the park daily, maybe 5 or 10 will complain online. If the park does see a lot of people who boycott or don't come back, they will surely not add a coaster for awhile.

The best way to speed up the process is to just suck it up, and keep visiting. Convince your friends to go. Convince family members and co-workers to go. The more people that go, the better. If the park sees even one more guest per group that visits, it will help. Once Six Flags sees a large profit, they will spend the money and build big.



Totally agree with you coasterkid124!!!!

My favorite roller coaster is dumb.

Has RMC done any work at all on The Boss before?

Looks like this weekend will be the best time to buy or renew your season pass. This is really a good deal! Now if you process your season dining pass before Sept 1st you get a free sports bottle! Plus you get free refills the rest of this year.

After looking at the last clue on SFSTL's Facebook, I'm actually convinced that there will be a Fright Fest overlay before construction begins on Justice League. It might explain why nothing official has been announced for Fright Fest yet. Guess we will see tomorrow.
Top 10: 1. The Voyage 2. Outlaw Run 3. Millennium Force 4. SkyRush 5. Maverick
6. El Toro 7. Fahrenheit 8. Storm Runner 9. Thunderbird 10. Powder Keg

I just don't remember seeing that before on their website. That's why I was asking. What have they repaired then?

^ I would guess and say that it was more than likely a combination of track and structure since that is what RMC mostly deals with.

So I guess Battle for Metropolis will not be a water ride..I'm ok with that.

Now that Twisted Cyclone and Wicked Cyclone are confirmed,both were coaster built back in the 1970's. Could Screamin' Eagle be up next for RMC rehab instead of The Boss?
