  1. Last year, Six Flags Over Georgia remodeled their Gotham City section, which was introduced in 1997. They added a flat ride package with a Scrambler named Poison Ivy Toxic Spin and a second generation Enterprise named Catwoman Whip. While there are a few original remains, most of the area was changed. Here are some notable changes made to the Gotham City section. 1. The remodeled section included the Poison Ivy and Catwoman rides. 2. Mindbender was given a refurbishment and renamed The Riddler Mindbender. Several changes included a repaint and new track. 3. Harley Quinn Spin
  2. I have extremely sad news! Wild Adventures announced that Cheetah has reached the end of its service life. It would be replaced by new and exciting changes in the coming years. Cheetah was built by CCI and opened to the public on June 16, 2001. It featured a max height of 92 feet, with a drop of 90 feet and a max speed of 52 mph. The ride also featured a steel structure and two Gerstlauer trains. The layout was an out and back design with a figure 8 finale. Cheetah was the only wooden roller coaster at Wild Adventures. It had been operating for less than two decades.
  3. On February 8, 2019, Kings Dominion shocked the amusement industry by announcing the removal of Volcano: The Blast Coaster. Reactions to the announcement were negative, because it was not only a fan favorite, but also a unique one-of-a-kind roller coaster. It was the only Intamin Suspended Catapult Coaster and the only one to feature a roll out loop. Volcano: The Blast Coaster opened on August 3, 1998. Upon opening, it had wait times anywhere between 3 to 5 hours. It became the fastest inverted roller coaster in the world. It also featured the tallest inversion on a roller coaster at 155 feet.
  4. When Mr. Freeze opened at Six Flags Over Texas in March 1998, it held the record for the tallest inversion on a roller coaster at 150 feet. The previous record holder was Viper at Six Flags Magic Mountain, which featured a 144 ft tall vertical loop. Mr. Freeze featured a 150 ft inverted top hat and a 218 ft vertical spike. It even featured a sliding station with two train operations and a 0-70 mph LIM launch in 3.8 seconds. Five months after Mr. Freeze opened, Volcano: The Blast Coaster at Kings Dominion took the record for having the tallest inversion on a roller coaster at 155 feet.
  5. Today, we will be taking a look at Joker's Revenge at Six Flags Fiesta Texas. It has been 25 years since the park was acquired by Six Flags. I will be telling you about the history of the attraction right now. During construction of Fiesta Texas, a Vekoma Hurricane coaster was being developed. It would be a unique ride that would be the first of its kind in the United States and go backwards. The coaster was going to be named Wacky Twister and open in 1992 along with the park, but this was abandoned. However, the Vekoma Hurricane project was revived in 1995 and the ride would inste
  6. Cheetah at Wild Adventures was closed for the entire 2020 season due to the Covid-19 Outbreak. This is a CCI wooden roller coaster that opened in 2001. It features a steel structure and Gerstlauer trains. The entrance pathway that leads to Cheetah was walled off with a sign saying "The area is closed for the season". That explanation left many of us confused, speculating that it could have been due to budget cuts in the maintenance budget or that due to the enclosed nature of the queue, the ride couldn't open with restrictions in place.
  7. Mr. Freeze at Six Flags St. Louis just stalled between the top hat and over-banked curve. This was probably due to the LIMs on the vertical spike constantly failing. The incident happened during the Holiday In The Park event yesterday on December 27, 2020.
  8. I have extremely sad news! Six Flags Mexico has announced that Superman el Ultimo Escape will not reopen for the 2021 season. This was a Morgan hyper coaster that opened in November 2004. It was originally planned to open in 2002, but it got delayed. The coaster last operated on December 18, 2020. After 16 years, we will be saying goodbye to a fan favorite attraction. RIP Superman el Ultimo Escape (November 19, 2004 - December 18, 2020)
  9. Aquaman: Power Wave at Six Flags Over Texas is going to be delayed to 2022 due to the Covid-19 Outbreak. This is the first Mack Powersplash in the United States. It was supposed to open in 2020, but it got delayed. Six Flags Over Texas said that the ride was set to open next year for their 60th anniversary. Aquaman: Power Wave had its track layout complete by early 2020. However, the Covid-19 Outbreak struck the United States. It is still continuing and won't end until further notice.
  10. It will be fifteen years since an accident occurred on Batman And Robin: The Chiller at Six Flags Great Adventure! On June 2, 2006, two cars on the original Robin train were damaged as a wheel bogie on the third car suffered a mechanical malfunction. No one was hurt in the accident and passengers had to be evacuated. The cause of the incident was actually due to the zero-g rolls putting too much stress on the track. Following the accident, both Mr. Freeze coasters and Joker's Jinx were closed for wheel bogie replacements. The Chiller sat closed for the remainder of the
