    2020 and Beyond Speculation at SFGA

    Three things happen for 2020: 1) Bizarro moves to Six Flags Darien Lake for 2020. 2) Six Flags uses the land where Bizarro was for a new addition to the safari called Dinosaurs Alive! 3)Hurricane Harbor gets a new addition.

    And if the ride gets stuck, you can just pull out a switchblade and cut yourself down. The drop doesn’t look that bad. 😁

    Six Flags Additions for 2019

    It’s interesting that the Magic Mountain and Great America teasers are both racing themed. I am thinking Magic Mountain gets West Coast Racer(racing/dueling launch coaster) and Great America gets Maxx Force ( S&S Air Launch coaster like Extreme Rusher). Note the record in the videos, maybe fastest accelerating coaster in the Americas. It seems like a waste to get rid of Apocalypse at America, so I am going with a floorless conversion and retheme. At Six Flags New England, Kryptonite Kollider is closed for the season and might move to a new location within the park. A new flat ride will probably show up in this location.

    Looks like parts for the solar project. The logo for SMA is on the crates. https://www.sma.de/en/industrial-systems/overview.html

    I don’t follow, that’s three different track sizes that are easy to tell apart from each other.

    I haven't found any records related to a new ride being imported yet. https://www.usaimportdata.com/usa-import-importer-six_flags_great_adventure.aspx https://www.usaimportdata.com/usa-import-exporter-antonio_zamperla_spa.aspx I am expecting a large shipment from Zamperla early next year that looks like this. https://www.flickr.com/photos/charleskendall/sets/72157667427844588

    Cedar Fair to Remove Rides

    I am expecting a lot of new grass added for 2019 and 2020 across Cedar Fair parks. It was an interesting call, Cedar Fair executives came off as being stubborn and unwilling to implement a new strategy. Almost every question from analysts was about mirroring an existing Six Flags strategy (lower capex to 9%, additions at every park every year, offering memberships, international licensing, adding new parks). One analyst said this was the third summer in a row where Cedar Fair claimed the weather was bad in the summer and asked why they didn't have any growth stategies to hedge against weather like Six Flags. Even Seaworld is adding cheaper new rides to every park next year and saw success with new events this year. Personally, I think they need to buy a park or two in Mexico that can be operated year round and buy a park in Texas or Florida (maybe Seaworld San Antonio or Busch Tampa) that can be open most of the year. Knott's is having a record year and was one of the positive points on the call.
