  1. Honestly as long as it's a faster construction than what was built at our Western counterpart (WCR at MM) I'm happy. That being said, the progress was really good, shame that it has to end for the time being.
  2. 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!
  3. Atleast someone will be taking pictures of the sight this Sunday..
  4. 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.
  5. That would be cool but of course there will definitely be parents who won't want their toddlers riding a devil themed coaster.
  6. The drop is going to be 130ft tall. The station isn't going to be ground level.
  7. 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?
  8. 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.
  9. If RRR gets moved to the Golden Kingdom I have a strong feeling it replaces Splashwater Oasis. It would fit perfectly in that spot.
  10. 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.
  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. 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.
  13. Because that's how it works until the actual announcement. Once the actual announcement happens the new attraction will get it's own thread anyways.
  14. Well if our addition leaks and someone posts it here, expect it to get removed quickly.
  15. The name is the only surprise, everyone was thinking it would be Polaris, but to my pleasant surprise they went with a name I liked better
  16. I believe it is a combination of Gotham City (previously Movietown) and the new Metropolis area. Correct me if I'm wrong though.
  17. While Six Flags is known for making stupid decisions, I doubt that GAdv would want Bizarro to be removed for the sake of turning Green Nightmare into a floorless. My bigger concern is that Green Lantern is literally a parking lot coaster at this point. I really want to see it torn down as it adds nothing enjoyable to our lineup. If Bizarro were re-painted or maybe even re-themed, it would become a much more popular attraction than it already is.
  18. GAdv replacing and repainting track? That's certainly new
  19. Clean the park up. I would totally suggest this over a coaster, but Six Flags doesn't want to do what is most necessary.
  20. I made a pretty long post a few weeks ago talking about how I really wanted a frisbee to come to the park, and seeing that it's not only now a reality but also a record breaker is really nice.
  21. It's a shame that the leaks plus the new thread basically killed this one off. It's fun to have a really hot thread the night before announcements, and things like leaks and new threads should really be prevented in future threads. Am I the only one that's really annoyed by the fact that out of every single Six Flags park, ours is the one that always has it's additions leaked right before announcements? Has been happening since 2015.
  22. What we're saying is that we would rather wait a few years for a T-Rex than to get a Raptor. I could honestly care less about what we get next year as long as the park benefits from it one way or another.
  23. We already have one of those rides but it's on steroids (Sky Screamer) so adding it isn't necessary.
  24. I doubt we'll have to wait that long for a coaster. Six Flags doesn't care enough about anniversaries.
