YES!

My favorite part is the people coming out of the ladies room like WTF?

I think the SFA Superman bathroom credit is on par with the Knoebels Super 8 credit.
Meister Brau just wants a path from CC to SM at SFA, meal plan burrito, some shade, and a restroom back there.

Being on par with anything at Knoebels at all is always a plus!

I don't think it is possible that anything at Six Flags America would ever be on par with Knoebels... Anything. :lol:

Batwing has only operated the first 2 weeks in April and has been closed ever since. Anyone have an update? Could Batwing become Firehawk next season?

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I hope Batwing is operational when I visit next month, but I won't hold my breath. I only got one ride on it during my last visit in 2016, and with Firehawk now gone I would like to take advantage of riding this before they all go extinct. I enjoy the Vekoma Flyers quite a bit aside from Nighthawk's death corkscrews...

Looks like some work is going to start where Dare Devil Dive used to be. Soil Borings is one of the most important steps for putting down a foundation for an attraction. I think with how popular the Zamperla Frisbees are, we might be seeing one of them come to Six Flags America in 2020.

The boring locations create a rectangle ~80 ft wide by ~120 ft long. Zamperla lists the dimensions of their Giant Discoveries at 82' wide and 122' long. The boring locations would align (essentially) perfectly with where the footers could/would eventually go to have an attraction where the pendulum swings out towards the midway. Seems a pretty high probability of a Zamperla Giant Discovery coming to SFA...

Sweet! These things have always looked pretty awesome, psyched we could be seeing one. These past several additions have been very nice. Looks like we’re finally getting some level of attention from Six Flags (assuming that it is indeed a giant discovery)

That document says "SOIL BOINGS". It is clearly going to be a spring-powered bouncy ride :lol:

Actually, it also says "mark the entire sky coaster location"
