  1. CoasterForce recently toured the RMC headquarters and posted a trip report. https://coasterforce.com/forums/threads/antinos-2020-thread-silverwood-and-remaining-sights-whole-report-complete.44288/#post-1090155 A couple of things related to Jersey Devil Coaster:
  2. The son of Action Park's founder wrote a new book about his experiences at the park and did an AMA on reddit last night. https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/608764/action-park-by-andy-mulvihill-with-jake-rossen/9780143134510 https://old.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/hm9sa5/my_dad_founded_new_jerseys_action_park_widely/
  3. New video from TheCoasterSpot with footage from within the park: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3ihJIEfmGQ
  4. I am going to avoid all parks for at least a year. I have been monitoring lots of trip reports and don't like what I am seeing at any of the parks, too many people refuse to follow simple rules.
  5. With track being fabricated now, it will be interesting to see if the one at Magic Mountain is delayed. If not, the park might have to remove world's longest.
  6. Nine pictures of the new Gotham City at SFOG.
  7. https://investors.sixflags.com/news-and-events/press-releases/2020/06-24-2020-210130461
  8. The renovated entrance at Six Flags St. Louis looks nice. https://www.facebook.com/sixflagsstlouis/photos/a.71040081915/10157006312001916/?type=3&theater
  9. The "New for 2020" tab is now missing from the main Six Flags website. I expect some of the flat rides and a couple of the water slides to open this year, but not any of the coasters.
  10. Kentucky Kingdom submitted paperwork with the FAA in February to build an RMC Raptor for 2021. https://oeaaa.faa.gov/oeaaa/external/searchAction.jsp?action=displayOECase&oeCaseID=430142564&row=326
  11. ^Wanda already sold it to Sunac in 2018. https://deadline.com/2018/11/dalian-wanda-theme-park-film-business-sale-china-sunac-1202493879/
  12. https://www.news9.com/story/5ee12ec7d0d1222312184343/frontier-city-announces-new-mask-policy-at-theme-park
  13. Construction has resumed on the Zhejiang and Chongqing projects. It is rumored that Sunac has taken over the Six Flags China projects and Six Flags is still involved in the projects.
  14. Comet is available as an app for most streaming boxes (Roku, AppleTV, etc.). I would think you would be able to pick it up with an antenna and amplifier. I pick up channels 50 miles away from two markets with an amplified antenna in my attic.
  15. Sounds like they are borrowing the "You can't come!" technique from CartmanLand.
  16. Frontier City will open on June 5th and posted a video detailing the new safety precautions. https://www.sixflags.com/frontiercity/plan-your-visit/safety-protocols?fbclid=IwAR3kEMzBncmY_U_R2NEk7I1iEbEfuYuAv5DG3Y9VyeWiz4ee0-cCU2d4ujg
  17. Here is an article about this project: https://www.nola.com/entertainment_life/movies_tv/article_4b05ae46-96ce-11ea-95e2-ef1b943779a8.html
  18. Adventureland Park (Iowa) is removing the Dragon roller coaster to make room for a 2021 attraction. https://rcdb.com/213.htm https://www.facebook.com/AdventurelandParkIowa/photos/a.595754243841298/2932958013454231/?type=3&theater "Coming in 2021....." Video of Dragon removal from the local news: https://www.facebook.com/kcci8/videos/vb.20435490078/239699220691976/?type=3&theater
  19. Actually, Spanos and the Board of Directors have made the right moves to keep the company going even if all parks remain closed into 2021. Only three people from the JRA era remain on the board and one of them will be replaced soon. It's difficult to comment on the future of the business model because Spanos had to cancel his investor conference outlining the new strategy.
  20. I think the goal is to offer something so that members continue paying their monthly payments, this helps to lower the monthly burn rate for the company. https://www.fool.com/earnings/call-transcripts/2020/04/30/six-flags-entertainment-corp-six-q1-2020-earnings.aspx
  21. Yes, they also said in a IAAPA interview that they were working on a couple of different seating configurations.
  22. Haunted House with drop tower ride. https://www.lego.com/en-us/product/haunted-house-10273
