If there's one thing Six Flags seems to have found a niche in, it is theming attractions around the apocalypse. This honestly looks like a good overlay for a formerly tired attraction. Good for Six Flags America... One step in the right direction.

Definitely one of the better attempts to polish a turd.

Nice work, Larry.

Looks like the park put on a pretty good show, too--along with those cookies. Good report, Larry.

Anyone see the clips on channel 4 & news channel 8 this afternoon?I think they did a good job on this but they REALLY need to do something about the old two face station.

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

Thanks a lot Larry!
In my opinion it's the best tracks color ever, this association works perfect! I've never been on a stand up coaster. Cross my finger to visit soon some of the best parks right there.

Pretty impressive installation for a Six Flags park really. I rode Iron Wolf once while it was at Great America, thought it was okay nothing special but it wasn't all that bad either. Should be a nice addition to the park.

I hopefully they feature Apocalypse in Richie Rich 2 :br .

That zombie make-up was impressive! Heck, I think it looked better than the usual Fright Fest attire.

Wish it wasnt the case that you had to single out the General Public. :?r Still, great report!
