2018 and Beyond Speculation at SFGA

Recommended Posts

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.

That is depressing. So in other words we are damned to forever getting cookie cutter small scale coasters. There are so many options out there that would be great for are park as first in the are.

 

-b&m wing coaster

-b&m dive coaster

-Maverick style Intamin

 

Id kill for any of those in our home park

Sooner or later, the Six Flags Corporation will ralise that their competitor, cedar fair, is very successful having 1 or two years of continuous high end addition and a couple cheaper years. Compared to cheap years after cheap years. Like are giga coasters ever gonna come? Probobly nit. But they will have 2 strata coasters.

The manufacturers usually come up with the names. Intamin came up with giga, RMC came up with Iron Horse, etc...

2019 And Beyond Speculation at SFGA. I'm already looking forward to it!

Less than 20 hours until we know everything about 2018. Are they still releasing everything at around 5AM?

I think this is the first time in years they've really kept GA's new addition under wraps until the announcement. Every other year I can think of it was leaked days, weeks or months ahead of time (or at least a general idea of what was coming).

Mondial Blender is not a world's first

Does anyone know what time SF updates the website and hopefully puts the YT video up?

Won't post the link, but I will say at least it beats a Skywarp! Should be an interesting attraction.

No way, I'd definely take a Skywarp over this. I would've taken any of the rumored rides over this

Bummmed about this addition. Glad the park is getting something unique, but I'll never ride it.

Skywarp was too similar to El Diablo, and IMO based on the animations would be a worse ride experience as well (10ft shorter, less hangtime moments). This is a very unique, original ride that even as a bystander should be fun to look at. Every year people complain about flats and now we have a new, original one in a section that badly needs another addition.

 

Every year I will be a bit bummed until we finally get some kind of RMC, but each addition we have received the last few years has filled a need.

I haven't seen the video on what this ride actually does so I can't really judge too much yet but so far it doesn't seem like something I would ride

We appreciate you guys not stealing the park's thunder by posting pictures of what's been leaked and retracted by some news outlets. It will be just a few more hours. Thanks.

This. As someone who really wants a new coaster, I'm THRILLED with this addition. We needed flats and we have a one of a kind flat that will bring lots of attention to a relatively dead section of the park.

The "worlds first" isn't true but it is an NA first

which brings up another topic.... is this year's addition more than one ride? The answer is likely no but anything's possible.

I guess they mean "worlds first" cyborg themed ride? Idek. All will be said in the press release tomorrow morning I guess. I don't wanna say too much at the moment.
