So, I just went to Six Flags America's website and this thing appeared saying something big is being announced September 3rd (Thursday). I wonder what it could be.

No retheme to worry about ;)


Wild One wouldn't be scrapped. Historians would have a field day. I have a feeling that Six Flags will not sell the park. Doubt Cedar Fair would buy.
Top 3 steel: Skyrush, Twisted Timbers, I305
Top 3 wood: El Toro, Twister, Wild One

Dorney can take Wild One then, which should satisfy historians and the need for another wooden coaster--and Ragin Cajun too, why not ;)

There's no chance Six Flags would sell, but if they did and Cedar Fair bought it, then this park would be Geauga Lake 2 to strengthen the market for Kings Dominion.
Don't trust people who don't ride rollercoasters. Jk.

I have a feeling the new attraction will be something for Hurrcane Harbor for two reasons:

A: They removed the old water play structure (the thing with the tipping bucket)

B: They put this banner up near where the play structure was (image from Screamscape):

I'm not as in tune to what major types of water park attractions are out there, but what could it be? What are there "in right now" water attractions that SFA could realistically get? The play structure's area is too small for one of those water coasters. Maybe some of the older slides (from the Wild World days) will be removed as well to make room?

And if CNL bought it... Nothing. No seriously, the park would be lucky to get a fountain. :lol:

Hopefully SF puts something halfway decent in. Not a small splash pad like Great Escape got last year. Poor Great Escape...

I agree, but I don't think as many people would be as upset as the Geauga Lake situation. GL was a great loss. SFA is just meh to most folk.

If its water park related for 2016 I'd LOVE to see Proslide be the company behind it. They make some awesome slides.

Someone said they are not in tune with water park rides. Check out Proslides website. I wish we could get some of that technology. I WOULD love to see something like Wildebeast that Holiday World has - that ride is AMAZING!
I may not know everything about coasters... what I do know is they are my life...
