^ If you're arguing for a family friendly ride, I wouldn't quite call an Endeavor that as they're quite intense.

I think a Supergirl theme is a lock based on the 252 hint. But with Six Flags always reusing names for different rides, there's no guarantee it would be an endeavor.

Thanks for the advice on this thread. We had a decent day this last Monday. The park was fairly crowded by my standards, usually 15 minute waits for most things, often more than that. The biggest winner in terms of advice was probably the Pandemonium single rider line -- we wouldn't have had the time to wait in that line, it was over a half hour.

I was quite impressed with Joker but that's probably partially because there was zero line and so it was easy to re-ride.

Wicked Cyclone was smooth and fun but the ride felt really short compared to the original Riverside Cyclone. It also didn't have the same "barnstorming" sort of feel as the original. Evaluating it on its own merits, it did have a great start, middle, and end, but somehow didn't rise to the level of epic for me.

Superman was good but the restraints reminded me (in a bad way) of Skyrush aka "Sky Rush" at Hersheypark. Ugh.

Thunderbolt was amazingly smooth for an old woodie. I was super impressed with that, given that we had been at Compounce the day before and gotten battered by Wildcat.

We hit Cal's for lunch as another poster suggested and that was perfect for what we needed... dark, air conditioned, lots of food options, not too far away.

It would have been nice if the park was less crowded as we probably got no more than three rides on any single coaster... Many of them we only did once, due to time. We were there all day except for a 2 hour break at the hottest time of the day. I think there might have been a bunch of school or church groups.

Anyhow, thanks again for all the advice and suggestions.

Glad you enjoyed it! I don't find Superman's restraints painful. I just find them bulky and awkward where they contact me.

I've got it! Mind Eraser Going Away.

It's a teaser that got lost in some space / time vortex that should've been used for 2017! Case closed.

The only thing I've heard so far is that Six Flags was at a recent Agawam town meeting to have a ride relocated.

Are they relocating Goliath to the surface of the sun?

Maybe they are just going to relocate SFMM's Green lantern right next to Joker.
