To anyone who know SFA well: Do you know about those wooden planks that have been by the end of Zoomazon Falls for years? They just pulled them up. Hmm. If anyone doesn't know, a Ferris Wheel use to be there.

This six flags need more than just a water park improvement. That bourbon street coaster is nothing but a state fair ride. They need something behind batwing or mind eraser.

^ A lot of people share your sentiments, but unfortunately that's not going to happen for a long time, if ever.

I'm actually totally fine with no major additions to the dry side, so long as they keep sprucing areas up a bit. I'd love to see the same thing they did with Mardi Gras done to the area over by Mind Eraser, even if it didn't come with anything new. SFA seriously has a lot of potential to be a much smaller, but much better park in the chain than a lot of the bigger ones with great rides but a totally sh*t experience.

You must have never ridden Bourbon Street Fireball. A whole lot better than the state fair variant.

Giant Interactive Water Attraction Coming to Six Flags America in 2016
Splashwater Falls to Keep Families Cool at Maryland’s Largest Theme Park
Six Flags America, the region’s largest theme park, today announced the addition of Splashwater Falls in spring 2016. The giant new interactive water playground will feature dozens of slides, nets, sprays, geysers and thrills for the whole family to enjoy. To top off the fun a super-sized, tipping bucket atop the huge play structure will dump water on guests throughout the day.

Parents can relax on a freeform deck surrounding Splashwater Falls complete with new lounge chairs and umbrellas. The little ones will enjoy exploring a variety of water play platforms, fountains, jets and water curtains, plus open and enclosed slides keeping everyone cool in the hot Maryland summer.

“Our guests recognize Six Flags America as a favorite destination for having fun with friends and family, and our Hurricane Harbor water park is the perfect place to play and beat the heat,” said Rick Howarth, park president. “The addition of Splashwater Falls demonstrates our commitment to giving guests something new to experience every year.”

Splashwater Falls will complement the variety of experiences for the whole family including thrilling attractions like Tornado, a six-story funnel of fun; Bonzai Pipelines, the high altitude drop slide, Castaway Creek lazy river and the largest wave pool in the region. With the addition of this new attraction, Hurricane Harbor will keep its place as the favorite summer destination for families from Maryland, Virginia, Washington, D.C. and beyond to cool off.

Wow... Tall about getting the short end of the stick. Incredibly dissatisfied, but unfortunately expected. I hope there's a refurb of Superman somewhere soon.

Yeah, everyone knew that this was coming as they removed a play area. Guess I can look forward to whatever improvements they are going to do next year.
