Screamscape sources tell us that one of the GCI Millennium Flyer trains from the now closed ROAR coaster at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom arrived at Six Flags St. Louis this week. The two trains from ROAR were rumored to be sent out to the two Six Flags parks that could use them as spare trains... or for spare parts, for American Thunder at Six Flags St. Louis and Apocalypse at Six Flags Magic Mountain. I would expect the other train to already have arrived at SFMM by now as well.


Seems like you guys won't be getting MF trains after all. Six Flags really just doesn't care about this park. I know that the trains are being used for parts, but would it hurt to let SFA use the trains for a year or two, then send them out? If they rehab one Roar it would make sense to do both.

Also, where was it heard that SF doesn't have any Ibox contracts next year? Unless they're looking to build another Topper Track coaster like Goliath.

And I'm sure the source of that information is 100% reliable. Probably the same guy screaming about Busch's dive machine contract in every thread on this forum, or the dude who actually believes B&M designed Drachen Fire.

A waterpark expansion is expected for next year, right? It looked like a large area was cleared along the edge of the parking lot. I think a water play area or family area was there before and removed before this season.

Yeah, RMC doesn't have anymore iboxes planned for SF after 2016. I don't remember exactly where it was stated but RMC said that they have 1 last ibox conversion for SF in 2016 (which is true as far as we know with Roar West being converted for 2016) before they raise the price significantly.
Sometimes when I am at the park I ask myself "Why is Kingda Ka open?"

I understand raising the price to make more profit, but if they raise it too much many smaller parks won't be able to afford it. I think if they only moderately raised the price, they would make more profit in quantity sold rather than in a few higher priced models.

Six Flags America really is so low on the totem pole in the Six Flags food chain. I doubt that Roar will actually even be converted to a RMC in any capacity.
