Cool, Air Races are really great. I'm interested to see how the elevation changes the experience.

YESSS!!! Air Races coming to the Six Flags chain! I had a sneaking suspicion 2020 could finally be the year (with all the Zamperla additions, you had to think this was only a matter of time).

As a person who’s home park gets flats every year, this is exciting news! Hopefully one will now come our way in the next few years.

This looks like a really solid, well-themed addition.

Whoa that thing looks wild, I'm not big on spinning rides sometimes but I'd definitely give this a shot to see how it is.

Can I park my donkey here?

It looks neat. I would have much preferred a new Wooden coaster in the boardwalk section, but this looks like a solid addition overall. Crackaxle Canyon has been sorely lacking in the flat ride category ever since they replaced Wagon Wheel with the slingshot ride. I can see why the would go a few years between coasters with a few flat rides. They were on a tear with the coasters for a while.

I rode the one in Tivoli a few years back. Fun and unpredictable.

Have they actually released how TALL it actually is, compared to others of it's kind?

I love Air Race at Lagoon. I imagine adding some height to it will make it even more awesome. Great addition!
