I always thought pro slide did their own installations which would lead me to believe this is not a water park addition. And yes they do other rides but I think we know that it would be for the dry park and not the water park.

It is a construction company that simply does amusement park installs. Read down their page and you’ll see that they’ve not only installed coasters but also other types of rides, including Mardi Gras Hangover for the park this year, Wonder Woman at SFM, etc.. So to me, it looks like you’re getting something, but have to be mistaken if you think this means what.

Honestly, to me it’s still a water park addition, and you are all just overly hopeful for a coaster and not a water park addition you may never ride. :butt:

There is not one water ride on this company’s page. They deal in steel. Still think coaster.

Just because they haven't done one before doesn't mean they won't do one.

Correct. They're a local company that has done work on some other stuff at SFGAm, so it doesn't seem outside the realm of possibility that Six Flags might contract thrm to build a water ride, even if they've never done it before.

I've seen it noticed elsewhere (sorry if I missed it on this thread) that our teasers (except for the Water Park setting) match up pretty well with what SFMM is teasing, and the cleared areas are similar size. This being Six Flags and the other clues we have (names, etc) seems pretty likely that both parks are getting the same thing (a launched racing coaster?)

^Sounds like the ride surveys were identical too, so it is starting to look that way. As long as it is a good ride, I don’t care if they are clones. Saves the chain money. MM has a teaser about “launching into 2019,” so a launch coaster seems likely there, and hopefully here too.

You guys can take this as you will but from what I have been told by friends who know people at S&S that they denied that SFMM is getting a coaster from S&S. The dude did say SFGAM is getting a S&S coaster focused on speed and not inversions. Take this as you will.

Found this on the SFMM thread, so I'm thinking more of an S&S coaster now
I resemble that

I thought the 175 yard sign from the Demon Railroad Crossing was interesting to me. Having been to the park, I scouted this out.

Maybe they're doing something with the old Sky Trail location?
