  1. I have to agree, we're pretty lucky to have guys as dedicated as you and @EasternThrills when it comes to following the construction of the coaster. Keep up the good work!
  2. Atleast someone will be taking pictures of the sight this Sunday..
  3. Personally I won't really care about any ride specs as long as this ride doesn't get cloned throughout the chain. GAdv is SF's second biggest park that ranks near the top in population center and in attendance, so it makes an addition like this being added to our park justified, a Raptor that's larger scale in almost every way. I think the smaller parks will likely see the Wonder Woman clones due to their cheap cost, and considering that they were able to put one it at a small to moderately sized park like Fiesta Texas makes that addition justified. This is also why I don't think we will see a TRex in the chain either. From what I've heard they will likely be very expensive, and considering the fact that GAdv and SF were willing to go all out on the Raptor concept instead of waiting a few years for the TRex concept to be ready for production makes me think that we won't see one in the chain anytime soon due to SF's budget friendly business model, especially since their model has no plan of changing even after JRA's retirement next year.
  4. That would be cool but of course there will definitely be parents who won't want their toddlers riding a devil themed coaster.
  5. The drop is going to be 130ft tall. The station isn't going to be ground level.
  6. So that was the case back when our Batman was painted yellow, and then they changed it to blue and black when MM and OG repainted their Batman rides, and then they changed it back again afterwards? Was this due to The Dark Knight movie?
  7. I think they’re going to give it a fresh coat of paint for next season too which is awesome. I hope they give it a blue coat of paint so that we won’t have two yellow coasters sitting next to one another anymore.
  8. If RRR gets moved to the Golden Kingdom I have a strong feeling it replaces Splashwater Oasis. It would fit perfectly in that spot.
  9. I found these photos on Facebook, they're not mine so shoutout to whoever took these. LTSP looks to be closed off completely and the entrances all have the Jersey Devil Coaster photo on them. I don't know about Safari Kids.
  10. If LTSP/Safari Kids does survive the Jersey Devil construction, I really hope they get fixed up. I think that they will end up transforming that area into Bugs Bunny Boomtown or DC Super Friends so I'm not entirely worried.
  11. I think construction will start as soon as possible, speaking of which will there be a thread dedicated to construction updates or will this thread serve that purpose?
  12. I would prefer a GCI Woodie like Goldstriker to take it's place, not only because it would actually look good on a parking lot, but because it would provide people with another woodie that isn't nearly as intense as El Toro. It'll also be nice to finally let go of the "park with most mediocre B&Ms" persona.
  13. I’m not sure we’ll see another Mack Powersplash come to a park in the chain anytime soon unfortunately. The cost I think is around $9,500,000, and the one that Over Texas is getting is being relocated from the failed Dubai park. Because of this we have absolutely no idea if Six Flags is ever going to buy an new powersplash again, especially since it would count as a new coaster, which I don’t see us getting for quite awhile with what was just announced for us. Let’s hope the one at Over Texas is a big success, that way we can hopefully see more of them in the future and eventually one at our park.
  14. Honestly I couldn’t be happier with this addition. It has an original layout and theme, not to mention a lot of enthusiasts are saying that this will be one of the best rides on the planet. The fact that people are saying that this coaster tops what Kings Island announced is very exciting. For the first time in a long time, it looks to me that Six Flags has actually bested Cedar Fair in additions, and our new coaster was at the forefront of it. One other thing I should add is that the airtime offered on WWGLC and Railblazer is said to be phenomenal, and the airtime is located on elements that weren’t even meant to have it in the first place. Imagine how good the airtime will be on elements that were actually made to deliver it, like the huge ejector hill, the stall, the raven turn into the dive loop, the turnaround followed by the zero-g roll, honestly I can’t get enough of the fact that this is a literal masterpiece. We don’t know how the ride will be obviously until it opens, but hearing rave reviews on the other Raptors out there gives us no reason not to be strongly optimistic about it.
