Speculations on Six Flags Additions for 2013

Recommended Posts

On August 30th it is rumored that we will be hearing all the latest and greatest additions being added to the Six Flags parks for 2013. (I must admit, I prefer this method MUCH better than random announcements and viral campaigns!)

 

Below is a recap of the latest rumors floating around on Screamscape.

 

Six Flags America - Hurricane Harbor expansion

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom - S&S Turbo Drop Tower

Six Flags Fiesta Texas - Rattler retracking

Six Flags Great Adventure - Kingda Ka Drop Tower/Entertainment lineup

Six Flags Great America - Merged kiddie section

Six Flags Magic Mountain - Sling Shot/New Coaster

Six Flags Mexico - Spinning coaster

Six Flags New England - ~400 foot SkyScreamer

Six Flags Over Georgia - SkyScreamer

Six Flags Over Texas - SkyScreamer

Six Flags St Louis - Flashback from SFOT

Great Escape - ?

 

Feel free to update this topic with the latest rumors and confirmations. I know one of them is inaccurate but I can't say what it should it be! ;)

^While I would love to see a drop tower, I hope that GADV doesn't go the Lex Luthor route by placing it on Kingda Ka.

i hope they dont do the drop tower, it will be closed just as much as ka, id much rather see a long 3-4 in coaster that runs along the back side of park, similar to like the survey had asked in the past, but if they do do the worlds tallest drop tower, im not going to complain, however if we have a bad winter similar to when ka was built it could mean delays in opening ka next season.,

I've been hearing a lot of talk about not alowing anyone to drive through the safari and making them ride some type of tram or bus through it. I really really hope this never happens. This is one of the things that makes Great Adventure unique. I have always enjoyed driving through all the animals on the largest drive through safari outside of Africa.

John Fitzgerald confirmed it to a person of gadv.com

 

I'm sure if you ask him, he will tell you.

Oh man this would be bad.... But ya know soo many people don't follow the rules. They feed the animals, block traffic, endanger the animals...

 

A few times a years we always drive the Safari before the park opens. Its the wife's favorite thing at GA....

My biggest issue is how many vehicles will they have? Even if they don't stop to look at all the animals and keep moving it will still take at least 30 minutes to drive through the safari. It could end up being a very long wait.

this is a good idea and a bad one at the same time, good for animails not beeing fed by idiots, bad because driving in the safari is alot of fun, however the fact of riding through while someone else is driving is neet

They need to focus on fixing King Cobra's problems first and foremost. While it's always nice to add new slides, the slide that was expected to be a cornerstone of the waterpark is flopping badly, and it's going to need some capital put into it to fix those problems. Whether it's the apparent slow ride or the weight issues, it needs to be addressed. Whether the park believes it's worth the investment or not is something we'll probably find out this off-season.

I get one of two things from that:

 

1 - The more obvious one: This looks like the theming in the Golden Kingdom, so this could very well relate to whatever the heck the plan is for the Safari, which assumedly would be connected to the park throughthat themed area.

 

2 - The long shot: Something regarding a remake of Houdini. There are cases like that in the preshow area, and in the film. Plus the ride involved multiple opening/closing doors.

 

I'm excited!

It could be the drop boxes for HH, you walk in the door, it shuts, then the trap door opens and you go for a trip down the slide...

According to screamscape perhaps we can expect a new waterslide with the rumored safari upgrade? This would be a good addition especially with how king cobra turned out.
