Canyon Blaster was pretty lame as far as Mine Trains are concerned. The Comet though is one of the best wooden coasters i've ever been on. It' airtime is insane. I would love to see a solid new coaster to form a 1-2 punch for the park.
^ Sadly I think part of the problem with this park is that people just go to it while being in the Lake George area, I am one of the locals who wants to see this park excel but this reason is why SF doesn't invest in this park too much because tourist will still come to it anyway.

New York has never really been a hot spot for theme parks. Maybe it's taxes, or most people visiting NYC.
This is really pathetic though. A retheme of a splash pad? Come on they could of at least replaced it with an Aqua Twist. That would probably be successful at the park.
I'm actually not a kid; it's my nickname. I'm the youngest guy at my job. Only until after I created my account did I realize it made my sound like I'm 12. "Giddy up"- Cosmo KramerFinally got an avatar! Darien Lake coaster drought: 16 years and counting.....
I'm also from around the area and all I think they need is a signature steel coaster. I'm content with the size of the park now, I don't want it any bigger in terms of area. So when this coaster comes I would hope it would take the spot of one of the lackluster coasters.
I've said it for a while, Six flags could go years without investing and the attendance would stay the same. Also on the other hand if they invest heavily the attendance wouldn't spike that significantly. That's the one and only reason why TGE is still called " The Great Escape: A Six Flags property" (It's why Six flags hasn't sold it yet)
Yeah, I just saw it too, my brother sent me a link. That REALLY sucks, I would have been happy with ANYTHING but a waterslide re-theme. I mean, it's not even a new slide complex, they are gonna add some new paint and market it as a "new" attraction ? I think I wouldn't even have complained if it was a new kiddie ride in Kidzopolis.
