  2. It looks like they are being called legacy memberships now. I imagine Six Flags will increase the prices on legacy memberships after 12 months to get all of those people to switch to the new passes. Here is the new pricing and pass options for Magic Mountain: https://www.sixflags.com/magicmountain/store/tickets

  5. California's Great America: https://screamscape.com/html/california-s_great_america.htm 2023/2024 - Launched Coaster - Rumor - (11/7/21) Not much to report right now, but hearing that California’s Great America could be in the early phases of planning for the park’s next coaster. The early contender being considered so far is said to be a launched coaster, which was included as part of an approved masterplan presented to the city several years ago. One concept rumored to be under consideration for the park would be a multi-launch coaster from Mack Rides, not unlike Copperhead Strike at Carowinds, but with a custom layout. Knott's Berry Farm: https://screamscape.com/html/knott-s_berry_farm.htm 2023?? - New Roller Coaster - RUMOR - (11/7/21) According to a Screamscape source, the rumored Giga Coaster plans for Knott’s may have been given approval to move forward with an intended timeline of opening the coaster in 2023. Keep an eye on the Mystery Lodge area for possible signs of prep work, as this is where the entrance / station is expected to go, with the rest of the coaster expected to be contained mostly in the southern parking lot area, towards the Hotel. If the rumor holds true, early work to prep the site may begin sometime between Q1 and Q2 of 2022. The plans for a proposed Giga coaster and new parking garage leaked on Discord. https://old.reddit.com/r/rollercoasters/comments/rqwt6p/leaked_plans_for_knotts_berry_farm_giga/ Overlay of the leaked plans created by AbsolutelyClam on reddit. https://old.reddit.com/r/rollercoasters/comments/rqwt6p/leaked_plans_for_knotts_berry_farm_giga/hqd80d0/ Here is an overlay of a earlier version of the Giga coaster plans that also leaked.

  10. Hopefully this event will be back next year. Rumor is some parks will not have Holiday in the Park next year as part of the new CEO's budget cuts and restructuring.
  11. I find your comments to be extremely rude. I can't believe you actually have the nerve to tell the owners of the forum what to post on their own forum.
  12. I heard Fiesta Texas is testing out a new flying option on their Skyscreamer. Two sets of seats have been replaced by new harnesses.
  13. It always seemed like poor planning to put Total Mayhem/The Joker on the lakefront when they clearly had space for it next to Justice League.

  22. There is some speculation that a merger or acquistion could be imminent. https://twitter.com/JonLitt/status/1460253851676819458 Which reminded me of a discussion from a month ago about Six Flags corporate booking hotel rooms near Kennywood / Palace Entertainment HQ. https://old.reddit.com/r/rollercoasters/comments/q41oru/six_flags_officials_in_pittsburgh_other/
