Wild Wedgie at Great Escape will be a custom Proslide Cannonbowl. Supposedly, Six Flags ordered it with a smaller bowl so you get more rotations in it, so it should be great fun! At least Six Flags is remembering they got a water park there... Took them 9 years to build a new slide!

^A half pipe I would think, but then again Six Flags isn't the best at theming. :P
These rides are really fun especially going down backwards, it gives you a huge sensation of tumbling down the side.

Six Flags must really like 'Tony Hawk'! :lmao:

The slide sounds cool and all, but really,
is that the best they can do? Couldn't they maybe improve scenry or something. Make the waterpark better. Who knows what they could do. Who knows, maybe Tony Hawk might give them some money to improve the parks. ;)

^It does, but not all the way around, its not a bowl. Its pretty much a halfpipe but with a tube.

This is what it should look like if you have trouble picturing it.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

They need to get off their butts & start fairly distributing rides equally to their parks or just close a few of them....this is ALL Burke's fault for spoiling SFMM,SFGRADV & SFGRAM punk rotten earlier in the decade while ignoring the remaining parks & bankrupting the chain in the process.

If this keeps up SFA will become the next GL or SFAW I'm sure & this is why I won't get a season pass for 2008,five straight years in a row of neglect with nothing but ride removals & NO replacements while wasting money on only their waterpark doesn't justify the fifty dollar price tag for a pass.

I just made a donkey in No Limits!

SF over Texas is getting Wild Wedgie. Great Escape is also getting Wild Weggie, but I don't know if it is a Boomaerango slide like this.


Great Escape is getting a Proslide Bowl.

You just lost the game

What's up with all the Tony Hawk themed rides? Six Flags should do more research, and install a Vekoma Big Air if they want a skateboarding themed ride. Or, an actual skate park.

Did the donkey fairy give me this title?

Something is better than nothing.....good to see SFA get some attention to.

Hopefully this leads to bigger and better thing for the park.
