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.


Take a look at how his football team has done under his ownership. It's very apparent it's his fault.

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

SFA received the worst addition this year tbh. This park deserves at least another flat ride along with the waterpark addition. Even a superman retheme or some retheming of some sort would be better

Never know. They may have left something out, like new trains on S:ROS, etc

^Could very well be. All of the first gen Intamin hypers, excluding Millennium Force, have been rumored to be getting new trains fairly soon. Bizarro was confirmed already, but the trains will just be refurbished and not replaced. Those are second generation anyways.

SFA and Darien Lake still run first-gen trains and have been rumored to be getting new ones.

I have a question about purchasing season passes for next year. If I buy a SFA pass now I get access for the rest of this year. Does that include access to other parks for the remainder of this season or does that benefit not kick in until next season?

And I'm really looking forward to the day this park gets a new headliner attraction. Maybe RMC Roar East is in their future...

Wow, Six Flags America is getting Splashwater Falls, the kind of water attraction that is sure to be a great hit for the kiddies and anyone that wants to get a good soaking by standing under the giant water bucket when it tips over. Please excuse me for not being that excited about this announcement because SIX FLAGS AMERICA ALREADY HAS THAT KIND OF ATTRACTION!!!

Oh, they are redoing that area? I'm sure that there are some places inside that park that could use an upgrade ( new trains with better restraints on Superman Ride of Steel or Iron Roar or even a small flat ride), but I never suspected they'd do this to a great and unique Splash attraction. Now they will redo this area and make it just like any old Splash attraction. Oh the humanity . . .

Right cause if you count fire ball as a coaster then it's going to be another 4 years for a new ride

I know more about donkeys than women!

Oh well, I didn't really think that hell would freeze over this year...I was hoping, but, you know, how likely is it that hell will really freeze over? Actually, I'd bet on that happening long before SFA ever gets a new coaster (a real coaster, not a glorified carny ride or another SF park's low grade hand-me-down). As for the water park, SFA has a decent water park, but lots of other parks do as well, and I'm not that into water parks anyway.

IMO the water park is SFA's main attraction, as all of the times I had been there in the summer time the water park side was packed and the dry side was seldom crowded at all. Hence the reason they are spending money on it. However, maybe the dry side might also attract more people if they actually had something ground breaking to draw both the GP and enthusiasts, and the park wouldn't be in the Geauga lake-like situation where the water park carries the day.

So, as I make my plans for next year's travels, yet again SFA will not be among my list of destinations.

Oh, one more thing I just thought about - a couple of years ago SFA asked for a variance in their height restriction, but sadly it seems nothing has come out of that.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

IF Roar gets an I-Box conversion in the future, I wonder if it will be a Joker clone, or if it would be a unique and original layout?
