  1. 2019 and Beyond Speculation at SFGA

    I am guessing Six Flags will wait until the solar farm is up and running before installing a water coaster. If I remember correctly, Thunder Rapids at Fiesta Texas has five large pumps, one per section, and consumes more electricity than Poltergeist. If it was up to me, I would add two new coasters in 2019 to go against the opening of Meadowlands (RMC Raptor & Skywarp). This would complete the buildout of The Lakefront and Old Country. For 2020, I would redo the kids areas in the dry park and add a water coaster to Hurricane Harbor to go against Legoland.
  2. Six Flags Additions for 2018

    Six Flags Hurricane Harbor Arlington is adding Splashwater Beach for 2018: Six Flags New England announced Mind Eraser is being renamed The Riddler Revenge and the South End is becoming Gotham City. https://www.sixflags.com/newengland/newsroom/april-4-2018

    How would that differ from allowing all of the trees in front of Cyborg to be removed this year?
  6. New for 2018-- Cyborg Spin

    I found some footage of the construction on reddit:
  7. Hershey Park 2018 new rides

    The 2020 project must be big if they are getting approvals this early.

  9. 2018 SFGA Theme Park Map

    ^I agree the map is always drawn out of scale, but there is plenty of room for a coaster with a footprint of approximately 250 ft x 75 ft plus the queues and maintenance area.

  11. Six Flags Theme Parks Future Predictions

    ^ I like how the second generation version allows some of the arms to be changed out for a different experience. When was the last time Six Flags purchased a new ride from Huss?

  13. Six Flags Theme Parks Future Predictions

    I could see Great America getting a Giant Discovery 2019. It would be a good replacement for Condor or maybe Triple Play could be relocated within the park to make space for it. I doubt America is getting another water park addition for 2019. I haven't received the new survey, but it is asking questions about kid's rides for 2019. It sounds like at least one park in the chain is getting a new kid's area for 2019.
  14. Do you plan on buying one of GA's new Membership plans?

    I am keeping my season pass this year and will figure out my options for next year later in the season. It wouldn't surprise me if season passes aren't offered for 2019 and you have to pick a membership. This is actually a really smart move to raise prices to the levels they should have been at in the first place while making people feel like they are missing out on a bunch of benefits if they don't upgrade. The new benefits don't cost Six Flags much money to implement. If you rolled these memberships out at the end of the season, it would probably hurt ticket sales for 2019 due to the confusion. Doing it now gives people an entire season to get used to the idea.
  15. Six Flags Theme Parks Future Predictions

    My early Six Flags predictions for 2019: SFMM = Mack Rides Xtreme Spinning Coaster full custom layout replaces Roaring Rapids similar to Silver Dollar City's new coaster SFOT = Mack Rides Xtreme Spinning Coaster compact layout version in Gotham City https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Z6Kmp0n7L8 SFGAdv = RMC Raptor next to Justice League & Skyline Attractions Skywarp on the Lakefront SFDK = S&S 4D Free Spin SFGAm = Large Water park expansion with Proslide RocketBlast/Flying Saucer slide replaces the Pictorium SFOG = Water park expansion with Proslide RocketBlast/Flying Saucer slide SFNE = Water park addition with Proslide RocketBlast/Flying Saucer slide SFA = Zamperla Giant Discovery between Superman & Batwing SFFT = 2 Flat Rides(Zamperla Giant Discovery & a new to the Six Flags chain flat ride) replace Hustler in front of Batman Great Escape = Family Dark Ride similar to SFFT 2018 addition in the Nightmare at Crack Axle Canyon building SFMex = Skyline Attractions Skywarp SFSTL = ABC Rides Tourbillon replaces Highland Fling La Ronde = Poltergeist relocated from SFFT to make space for SFFT 2020 coaster addition The current Six Flags patterns are: SFFT & SFOT are the prototype parks for testing new clone rides and concepts. SFMM gets unique or bigger versions of rides than the rest of the chain.
