This looks like a great addition for this small park! Glad I got my Flitzer and Python credits a few weeks back, too. I've got a bunch of leftover Playland ride tickets in my car - looks like I just confirmed a return trip next summer!

Anyways, this is huge for this small park and should be a great addition. I'm excited to have one of these so close to home, maybe I will finally (after many failed attempts) check these Ocean City parks out once this is built!



I wonder if this will light a fire under Morey's A$$ to finally pull the trigger on their woodie or some sort of new coaster?


So glad to see a park actually building one of these. I remember seeing the concept for it a while back, and I thought it looked like a decent attraction for a small park! Hopefully it rides as good as it looks! Also, I like the new restraints. Very B&Mesque. Now if only Magic Springs could get a coaster like this!!

Anyone else notice that the music, graphics, and sound effects in the annimation video are very Six Flag-ish? I'm sure logic would just say the same graphics firm used for previous Six Flags annimations was used for this. However there is a rumored 2nd launched El Loco allegedly headed for a U.S. park for 2016. With Six Flags filing a trade mark for "Gale Force 7" and the eerie similarities in this video and previous Six Flags animations, can't help but wonder if the 2nd version of this ride will end up in a smaller Six Flags park. I know it's a wild predicition, but something just struck me about this video.

UNLESS this project was previously planned for a Six Flags park and cancelled last minute. Again just a wild guess on my part and pure speculation, not stating this as fact or anything.

They were both for sale on http://www.intermarkridegroup.com/used-rides/roller-coasters/2.html so I knew something new was going in to fill that huge hole.

Actually, they are both sold now - Glad I got the credits who knows where they will end up! This new attraction certainly looks better than those two combined.

I have to admit that looks like a lot of fun. Surely a coaster like no other out there.

Regarding the 2nd American perk to get this, I could see a six flags park receive it or more likely Fun Spot America.

I agree with this. With Six Flags filing a similar name, and this using very Six Flags-ey animation, I could definitely see this at a Six Flags park.

Considering they had success with Batman at SFFT, I think it's very likely for SF to go with a compact S&S again.

It looks like Tempesto and El Loco had a baby--which is not a bad thing.
