We need to compare the old flashback site and the strip mall area to see if xflight or another winged rider footprint

Sorry guys I meant,compare flashbacks old footprint plus the strip mall to xflights footprint to see if it will fit

I have already done some comparisons on Google earth. Believe it or not, a pretty decent sized coaster could fit in the Flashback, bumper car building, and the strip mall area.

Looks great (that extra height is stunning even in pictures), but your posts need more links.

I did come comparisons last year. I'll post the image again -

The yellow is Dare Devil Dive, the pink is Huracan (Belantis) and the white is Wild-Svinet (Bon Bon Land).

To me it looks like a coaster the size of Batman, maybe larger could fit in that area.

Runaway Mountain
La Vibora

PS- If you can't handle a standard size swing ride (Gunslinger), then you're better off staying away from Texas Skyscreamer. :shockr:



Thanks! I'll keep that in mind as the dates get closer. Is your list put together by any type of system like going in a big circle of the park or anything rather than trekking back and forth all day?

I suppose I could handle the swing rides, I rode it hundreds of times, I just always had an irrational day dream of sorts about falling into the pond they had next to it or my shoes falling in the pond and having to go shoeless the rest of the day.

Any input on my other questions?

If the donkey is rockin, don't come knockin!

That area looks pretty good for an X Flight Wing Coaster, or a Wild Eagle one, hope they'll use that land!

As far as Flash pass, I personally never use it. NTAG is only included on the Platinum pass, and even then only 1 ride per day. Weekends are always crowded, it's better to go on a Monday or Tuesday if possible. Flash pass would best be used for rides like Batman and Mr Freeze. As I said, you need Platinum for 1 ride on the New Texas Giant- which for me isn't worth it. Titan is a high capacity coaster with a fast moving line. Even on a crowded day I've never waited longer than 30 mins to ride the Titan, which makes Flash pass seem redundant.

Single riders are welcome on any ride in the park. Pandimonium even has a single rider line.

My system is a clockwise circumference of the park. I start with rides which are likely to draw the most patrons. NTAG is the most popular ride right now. Getting to it early will reduce wait time. If you get there when the park opens, head straight for it followed by Titan. This way you can get quick rides on both before lines form. The rest of the rides are done in a clockwise circle of the park.

This will allow you to hit rides like Superman and Mr Freeze whilst other guests are queing for NTAG and Titan. Judge Roy Scream is almost always a walk on, so it doesn't really matter when you ride it.
