The ground looks charred and scorched there...kinda fitting for an Apocolypse. I wasn't expecting too much theming (look at Green Lantern at Great Adventure).

Good to see Wolf live on.

This is so I can post online and impress other people who are very good at procuring unfamiliar children in order to go on rides designed for children, and thus have a higher arbitrary number than me."

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

This will be a good addition i think. It's not new, but whatever. SFA has kind of taken the role as the red-headed stepchild of the six flags chain anyways. :p
I like the B&M standups. Don't see much point in the stand-up feature still, but the layouts are good at least.

I'm kinda happy about this, just because it's a B&M I've never ridden, and I can easily get the credit next year. :)

Talk about a drab paintjob,the park has gone the longest of any in the chain without a new coaster & this is what they give us?A 22 year old ride that has seen better days long ago.

Maybe,just maybe this will show the folks at corporate that it's a park worthy of investment & we'll get some better rides to come.

I'm just nervous at how well this will hold up being dismantled and transported. Hopefully they can do some extensive train work to avoid too much pain. Either way, I'm sure the guests at SFA will eat it up.

Well its a win win for the park. Six Flags didn't spend the money on a brand new ride and the GP of the Washington area are going to think its the most amazing coaster ever because you stand up.

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

Skycoastin I am too stupid to spell Steel Vengeance so I'll just write SteVe and pretend I'm being cool wrote:I'm kinda happy about this, just because it's a B&M I've never ridden, and I can easily get the credit next year. :)

A big ol' Amen to that. I like the paint job. ;)

Six Flags America Announces Apocalypse


Maryland’s best theme park to add eighth coaster and first stand-up experience in 2012

The end is near as Six Flags America prepares to face the Apocalypse in 2012! Mayhem comes to Maryland’s favorite theme park in the form of a 100-foot mean machine roller coaster. Guests will take a stand against the end of the world in an all-new, stand-up, steel adventure.

Upon approaching Apocalypse, located in the Skull Island area of the park, guests will wind through a queue stepping further and further into an end of the world scenario. Just when it looks bleak, riders will break out to make the final stand against obliteration. They’ll stand four abreast together, while making the 100-foot ascent to the ride’s apex. For two minutes, they’ll hurtle along the 2,900-foot steel track, feeling the rush of 55 miles-per-hour speeds, hairpin turns, and pulse-pounding inversions.

The Apocalypse is planned to begin at Six Flags America on Friday, May 25, 2012 with a grand opening observance in the morning as the park opens and a thrilling display of fire in the sky that evening. 2012 Six Flags America Season Pass holders will be invited to be amongst the first to brave the ride in a two-day preview event on Saturday, May 19 and Sunday, May 20, 2012. Season passes are on sale today at sixflags.com/America.

Apocalypse has been designed by Bolliger & Mabillard (B&M) of Switzerland. This is Six Flags America’s first B&M coaster as well as the park’s first stand-up coaster. Apocalypse promises to add to a whole new high-intensity thrill to Maryland’s favorite theme park, complementing the park’s arsenal of world-class roller coasters, thrill rides, and water park. The seven current roller coasters at Six Flags America are anchored by the 200-foot SUPERMAN: Ride of Steel; and highlighted by BATWING, Maryland’s first flying coaster; and the classic wooden Wild One, which celebrates its 95th year of thrills in 2012.
