 This is usually the type of ride they relocate every few years. This one is new? 

Yes, it's a new one.  This ride was really popular at Great America and people were upset when it moved to America.  It appears to be really popular at America too.  I am just surprised it took Six Flags this long to buy another one.

I just watched a video of the Fiesta Texas Diamond & Diamond Elite 2020 Ride Preview Event.  I wish more parks would do these events.

Jeffrey Siebert (Park President) said that Six Flags has been working with Zamperla on the Super Air Race for 3 years.  The ride is more expensive than a Giga Discovery.  Zamperla installed the prototype at Luna Park to make sure everything functioned correctly before building one for Six Flags.  The Super Air Race will arrive in March and be open for Memorial Day weekend. Crackaxle Canyon is keeping it's name but getting a Wild Wild West/ Steampunk themed overlay.  Fiesta Texas is going to completely retheme their Kidzopolis area to something that isn't Bugs Bunny or DC Comics.  The Slingshot ride will move to the Boardwalk by the Go Karts and Pandemonium.  Boomerang is getting a refurbishment.

Great Escape might not be able to construct their new ride.

QUEENSBURY — Great Escape has proposed a 165-foot-tall ride in a section of the park where tall rides are specifically forbidden, and neighbors came out in force Tuesday night to criticize that choice.
 

In 2001, the town and Great Escape went through a laborious process that included floating balloons above the park to decide what height would intrude on the viewscape of Glen Lake residents.

 

Great Escape officials acknowledged those rules at Tuesday’s Planning Board meeting. They also acknowledged that the proposed ride, Adirondack Outlaw, would be seen at least slightly from the Glen Lake area.

Maybe Great Adventure could have Adriondack Outlaw now as Lex Luthor Kryptonite Kollider from Great Escape as second 2020 addition in Metropolis section along with Jersey Devil Coaster.

Maybe swat Catwoman Whip (Over Georgia) and Adirondack Outlaw, but Outlaw would get the Catwomen theme like the St. Louis version

What’s the deal with West Coast Racers at SFMM?   I know Six Flags wants to be like Disney but following their construction timeline model is not too wise!

It's currently testing in the morning until 10am and operators are being trained.

Adirondack Outlaw at Great Escape has a new proposed location near Condor.  We won't know exactly where the ride will be located until the new site plan is made public.

QUEENSBURY — In October, Great Escape officials maintained that there was just one place in Ghost Town that could accommodate a 165-foot-tall ride.

 

But now they have moved the proposed Adirondack Outlaw about 150 feet, to the south end of the area.

 

“The south side would imply the ride is to be located next to the Condor,” said spokesman Jason Lee.

 

The 105-foot-tall Condor is between the cave tunnel entrance to Ghost Town and the Charley’s Saloon restaurant, near the entrance to The Steamin’ Demon. Lee would not comment on whether a portion of the restaurant, the Condor itself or anything else would need to be demolished to make room for the new ride.

 

“We will discuss any and all changes at the Planning Board meeting in January,” Lee said.

 

Great Escape has submitted its plans to the town, but the town has not yet made the documents public.

 

The ride isn’t just tall — it is long, with a 166-foot arc.

 

So in October, maintenance division Manager Danielle Smith said the only location in Ghost Town where the ride height was allowed is already being used by another ride.
 

Now, however, Great Escape officials are certain the new location is within the rules.

 

“Today we submitted a proposal for a new location of this ride, at the south side of Ghost Town, which is within the height guidelines of the impact study,” Lee said. “We look forward to the next Planning Board meeting in January.”

 

But the height zones in the Environmental Impact Study are so close to the proposed site that the planners must thread a needle to get the ride into the higher zone.

 

“The 115’ to 135’ height zone is located in the northern portion of the Park, which is at a higher elevation relative to the rest of the Park and includes Ghost Town and the area around the (former indoor roller coaster) Nightmare attraction,” the study said. “Zone 175’ to 185’ is located in the center of the Park and includes the area from the front of the Park to behind the Condor attraction.”

 

In an accompanying map, the line for the 175-foot to 185-foot zone goes through a corner of the Saloon building and a corner of the arcade building, where the jail is located, and then the short amount of pavement between the edges of those buildings and the Condor.

 

The jail was dedicated to Marshal Wild Windy Bill McKay in 2014, in honor of performer Daniel Claps, who died in 2011 at the age 90. For 50 years, he deputized children at Ghost Town every day and led them to hunt down a bank robber and save the day. His hand and bootprints can be seen outside the jail, and memorabilia from his performances are displayed inside.

 

The tight limits of the height zone would suggest that both buildings, or substantial portions of them, must be removed to make way — and even then the space available seems to be smaller than the space that Great Escape described as needing in previous plans submitted to the town.

The new site plans for Adirondack Outlaw are out.  Steamin' Demon is getting a new entrance and Adirondack Outlaw will go where the old path to Steamin' Demon was.

Here is a picture of the Tsunami Surge construction at SFGAm.  In the bottom right of the picture, you can see where the entrance from the parking lot to Hurricane Harbor was demolished.  It appears a much larger entry gate for the water park was planned for 2020.

Looks good! I'm guessing SFOG will probably be one of the few parks to actually get something new opening this year in the Six Flags system, and only because of their contractual obligations.  

It looks like Aquaman at Over Texas is delayed and is in a similar situation. However, Over Texas could operate through the winter and it's a ride that's better in warmer weather so.
