I do wonder if this is primer or the actual new color scheme. White and gray would be very non-SF.

That's how Six Flags is meeting in the middle. We asked for fresh paint so we're just getting a fresh coat of simple white paint haha :lol:

First trip report of the Season!
This was my first opening day so I didn't know what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that the crowds weren't too terrible for a Saturday.

A brand new sign above the fountain was a great surprise.

And now... Scorcher Paint shots!

Looks so much better

For the debate on whether Scorchers paint job is all primer or the finished product, the white looks to be primer while the grey could be the finshed product as it's glossy compared to the flat/matte color of the white.

In other news, Goliath Games is gone!

Was kind of disappointed that the only progress on Pandemonium has been land clearing and a sign, guess that's Six Flags for you.

IMG_20190309_111740232_HDR.jpg
Nothing to see here...

While all the track from the train has been cleared away, they're definitely reusing the old station.

Work has started on the Screampunk theming.

IMG_20190309_113412847_HDR.jpg
Sadly there was no backwards Scream Machine, but they did re-track some of the rougher parts, probably the best ride I've had on it in years!

Splashwater Falls sits and awaits its demise.

Overall a great start to the season, can't wait to go back again.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Just enjoyed a full day and I have to say I am impressed on the many different things the park is working on now. I will submit my own TR but I will focus on the stuff not yet covered here. Since the Scorcher re-paint and the progress on Pandemonium have already been well covered, I will not post additional photos.

Weather was the first pleasant surprise - sun was out for several hours, otherwise overcast and no rain!

New this year:

Membership Lounge (former Miss Dixie Depot / recruitment center building) - not open yet;

Numerous soft drink refill stations added - not Freestyle but fountain;

Panda Express replaced with Strutters Chicken Wings & Brews - we had our dinner there - it was actually good and our dining pass works there too! This may have been the first time I have ever sat down for a meal in that building...

Diamond Elite special park entrance - in the location of season pass processing (sign says Diamond Elite so I presume any lower membership tier has to use the member entrance or the main gate) - complete with metal detector and scanner. Yeah I know...weird...

Splashwater Falls sign has been removed, so it appears there is zero chance of this ride ever opening again;

Giant LICKSKILLET sign now removed ahead of forthcoming ScreamPunk theming - was deteriorated and needed to go anyway!

Rhythm & Grooves show sign up "coming soon" - so we know what the summer Crystal Pistol show will be

Railroad still closed since Holiday in the Park; locomotive nowhere in sight (anyone know more?)

Mobile food (APP) ordering not yet operational; coming soon

Goliath Games area removed - employee said they were rebuilding a new games pavilion to replace the old one.

Many of these improvements are minor but they do add up. I will likely be back tomorrow and look around some more. Enjoy the photo TR....

I can't believe I missed those refill stations! Those are gonna be real popular come summer.

Not gonna lie, I have some pretty "wrong" thoughts about how it looks. I wonder how many gallons of semen it's going to take to completely repaint it?

On a slightly more serious note, it is good to hear about Scream Machine! I rode it in 2012 and enjoyed it, but I rode it in 2018 with the Georgia Cyclone trains, and I was wailing in agony. That thing could have totally replaced our methods for capital punishment! (Not that I support that.)

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Great report, and glad you had fun.

just a couple of comments:

re: Goliath Games - when we were there last July? the overhead ACs were leaking and there were huge puddles of rancid water thruout the area. Good riddance to that. . . based on the poles, looks to me like they are gonna rebuild something there (more games)?. . . or maybe put in a small snack stand.


re: Pandemonium - those rides go up very quickly. like, really, really quickly.
Fiesta Texas is getting one too, and the land has been cleared for it for a couple of months already, and nothing in yet. but I expect it will be up and ready for testing in less than a week once they start installing. . so not too worried about it.

nice pics too, Lotologist492


and looks like you confirmed my guess on Goliath Games - that they were just gonna put new ones in.
