2018 and Beyond Speculation at SFGA

Recommended Posts

I'm gonna make my final prediction. I'm gonna place my money on a new HH wave pool, a Thunder Rapids Water Coaster Clone and a thrilling one of its kind flat near Autobahn. That new wave pool would benefit Hurricane Harbor. (Just my prediction)

Off topic question, if an RMC that had inversions were to come to the park, would there have to be over the shoulder restraints due to NJ law?

Chiller went flippy floppy and was converted to just lap bars, so I don't think its an issue.

 

Now knowing that that is a NJ state rule about coaster over 300', I hope GA never builds one that tall. Talk about a buzz kill. And I am talking about giga coaster style, not KK styel

Hurricane Harbor needs to join the rest of the water parks around and get one of those trap door slides. Most water parks (at least the good ones) have those now. They were suppose to get them a few years ago but that was canceled and they got the joke of a ride King Kobra.

this just shows how extreme Kingda Ka is, and certainly was when it was built several years ago!

 

Who will build the first 500' coaster? If they build Skyscraper in Orlando, it will break several world records. With a structure exceeding 500 feet in height, it is expected to obtain the record for the world's tallest roller coaster. Currently, Kingda Ka at Six Flags Great Adventure stands at 456 feet. Skyscraper will have an inversion near the highest point of the ride, breaking GateKeeper's 170-foot record for the highest inversion in the world, set at Cedar Point in 2013. The ride will also have the steepest drop in the world at 123 degrees, exceeding the 121-degree drop record set in 2011 by Takabisha at Fuji-Q Highland.

At this point if the park were to recieve an RMC it'd be a Raptor or T-Rex model (for 2019 and 2020) as El Toro is listed as one of RMCs coasters on the RMC website already, plus El Toro easily trumps all RMCs and maybe even all wooden coasters in the world right now.

Easily better than all RMC's? I mean, that's subjective, but Wicked Cyclone is right there with El Toro as my favorite of 157 coasters. It wouldn't surprise me if one of the RMC's would surpass Toro on my list. RMC's have equally as incredible airtime plus a more diverse range of elements. Their products are absolutely top quality.

This is true but RMCs have new ride technology backing them up, Toro doesn't.

Maybe not "new" technology anymore, but it was new when installed, and still the only of its kind in the US. If anything, Toro uses the same concept that RMC now uses - pre-fabricated track.

El Toro had essentially the same technology as RMC's wooden coasters. It doesn't hurt El Toro's experience that it doesn't do some of the crazy things RMC's do. At the same time, it only helps that RMC's throw in such crazy elements.

El Toro isn't an RMC ride. It is known El toro is an Intamin prefab coaster and that Intamin worked with RMC designers so not sure where one company started and the other began. I was always told RMC was just there to do the install. My question is, how come there haven't been any more prefabs installed after El Toro

 

I also like the fact El Toro is the way it is... no flips. its nice to ride a coaster that makes you go wow and your feet never went over you head

RMC was involved in the construction of the coaster. There was 1 coaster built after El Toro, T-Express in South Korea. I think the main reason more weren't built is the cost. If the $25 million was accurate, not many parks could afford that (and if they could, they were probably going to add a steel coaster). Six Flags wasn't going to add anymore coasters in that price range. They said there would be "No more Goliaths" in reference to the cost of the coasters added to SFOG, La Ronde or maybe both that same year. Someone posted a while ago that with the change of management or running of Six Flags, Red Zone actually wanted to cancel El Toro but the progress was too far for that to happen.

I think I am more excited this year due to the lack of leaks, they even named all of the ride pages newfor2018 instead of giving away ride names this year. The only leaks were the SFNE planning board meeting, STL soil testing in the water park, and the utility marking ticket for SFA that shows which ride is probably leaving.

I should be, but considering it's basically obvious what we are getting (cyborg themed skywarp) I'm not really hyped about it. I'd rather be surprised you know?

Not saying it isn't a Skywarp as that is a very real possibility, but I don't see why people think it is a foregone conclusion. There are 5 SF parks getting either a world or North America's first attraction. As of right now Skyline has only been confirmed to have sold one of them. None of the rumors to this point have been anything beyond basic speculation. I think it is just as possible that we see another first of its kind flat ride, or small coaster.
