I guess it’s time to pack our bags then, the days of coasters being actual possibilities for our park are over. Six Flags can still tease with the whole “each park gets something new every year” scheme but deep down we can tell what parks they prioritize and what parks they would rather not have to even deal with. It’s a shame seeing all these new kinds of coasters at IAAPA and on Reddit, with the chances of us actually getting any of them being completely slim. You do have a point when you say that we’ll be set up for disappointment, because when our park could’ve gotten something really good this year, Six Flags sent two major coasters to two pretty undeserving parks instead.
While other ideas such as cleaning up the park seem good too, the issue with that is that GAdv wouldn’t ever consider doing that, as there have been issues with our park all around the board for millennia that haven’t even been addressed yet, and instead they choose to make these issues worse with low effort loose article policies and paid for lockers instead of cubbies.
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy most parks, but with GAdv being my home park, I would love to see them get a really good coaster as I believe they deserve it, but as more parks have been prioritized and have won the economic growth jackpot over the years, we’ve become less important in the eyes of Six Flags and it’s simply frustrating. I’m aware I’ll probably get a lot of backlash for this post like I do with all my other posts, but I really felt I needed to get this off my chest as it’s been bothering me for quite awhile.
