Glad to see Six Flags improving their weather policies.


That made me laugh, too! Kinda quirky animation. ;)

^^^ Just as a side note we have purchased season passes two times, and a friend has purchased a season pass, all at various parks, different years, and even though we didn't process by the date posted to get gold upgrade, the gold upgrade was always on our passes. Your milage may vary! -- note that even the regular pass is good at all six flags parks, but aren't supposed to include parking. I think they just use the date as a scare tactic to get you in the door ASAP but I have seen many others say the same thing about the gold upgrade.

I love donkeys more than me.

Um, no, because Viper is one of the better wood coasters. It runs a lot better then Georgia's did.

Glad to see flat rides being invested in. I highly agree with the giant Frisbee at SFMM but doesn't SFNE already have a Frisbee type ride? Also glad to see ABC Ride's Tourbillon coming to North America.

The WTF addition is SFGAm's Super Loop. The Skywarp should have went there instead. SFGAm's crazy sized crowds will make this a nightmare to wait for.

I'm a know-it-all about donkeys!

I used to be on team, "too many D.C. Comics named rides", but if the name is either Joker, Harley Quin, Wonder Woman or Crazanity, all I can say is keep the D.C. Names coming.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Granted older folk call it just Great Adventure.


:nina: Same. The majority of (non-enthusiast) people I mention I'm going to other SF Parks have no idea there are other SF parks elsewhere. When I say Six Flags they automatically think I'm only referring to Great Adventure. A common question is "are they all the same rides at other SF parks as they have @ Great Adv?"

I wish we had El Toro and Nitro in St. Louis! But yeah, same here. The only time I specify Six Flags St. Louis is on this board or when I'm traveling. Otherwise we all call it just Six Flags, and everyone knows what you're taking about.

Back in 2004 I was visiting a friend in San Antonio who had BAFF passes and wanted to take me to Fiesta Texas. My initial thought back then was "We have one of those in Missouri, why don't we do something we can't do at home?" He assured me Fiesta Texas was different from SFStL, and of course was right. That was when I realized that going to a theme park outside your local area is a thing that you can do.

Honestly I think six flags did a good job adding rides. All look like solid additions to parks and didn't really cheap out this year. Also I completely forgot water world concord existed.

Don't let this donkey melt you with its laser eyes!

Regarding new attractions and such . . . . do the respective SF parks bid to get them, or does the board essentially say . . . "Ok, Magic Mountain, Great Adventure, etc are getting JL:BFM"? (or something along those lines)

Its a combination of the parks choosing it and corporate approving it.
