It's totally a necessary addition and this park has been improving in leaps and bounds in the last 5-7 years. That said, after so many minor expansions they are constantly falling behind in terms of blockbuster attractions, so unfortunately I'll be spending my tile and money elsewhere next year (Kings Dominion) because this just doesn't appeal to me.
There's only so long you can long you can "keep waiting" with strong hope. I can wait until 2017, but in the meantime I won't be waiting at SFA.

I would too, but the park is only 2 miles away, and at 49.99, it's a no brainier for me.

Great Escape 2.0 right here. Nothing against the refurb of the splash area, but there is so much more that could be done. Especially that a lot of parks got multiple additions in one year.

I get that water parks are a huge draw for regional parks right now, so I get why this addition would win out over a park improvement... It just stinks for Six Flags America because once again they can't catch a break when it comes getting a major, new investment in their amusement park operation.

I'm curious to see how it's different from the old structure, and why they chose to switch them out. These things are always a lot of fun to hang out in during the summer, so any improvements over the last one will be great!

6. Millennium Force | 7. I-305 | 8. Medusa: SC | 9. X2 | 10. Phoenix

I'm disappointed. I would have loved to see this plus some sort of minor addition in the dry park. Rehab another section, maybe over by Mind Eraser. Or put in a SkyScreamer or some other flat ride. Even a bathroom, or how about a tree. ANYTHING.

Stupid decision by Six Flags to give Discovery Kingdom's Roar the RMC treatment instead of America's. Discovery Kingdom's Roar is way smoother and in better shape. Plus America needs a great coaster more.

They didn't even bother to put the Millennium Flyer trains on America's Roar.

Want to know who to blame for the abandonment of Six Flags America? A greedy dirtbag by the name of Daniel Snyder. This clown ruined a perfectly good park and is now running the worst sports team in the entire world: The Washington R*dsk*ns.

Is an RMC not an improvement to any coaster?

Dan Snyder wasn't perfect; Shapiro's strategy of cutting maintenance budgets was cited as a factor in why that girl's feet got ripped off in Kentucky. But don't blame him for Six Flags America being unable to compete. Story and Burke built a ton of rides and no infrastructure to support them adequately. Blame them.

I kind of feel sorry for Six Flags America getting the short end of the stick again. I wish I could donate my home park's Scream to them so they would have something they would apprieciate a lot more than we do, and besides we don't really need it anyways.
