I agree with this, and I also would personally hate to see American Eagle go.

I know this is an unpopular enthusiast opinion, but I don't think Viper is anything special. If they were going to RMC conversion something at SFGAm, I think it would be that, because of the possibilities the more twisted layout offers.

I don't think they're doing either coaster though, and I doubt they're getting a coaster at all in 2020.

So, how is Maxxforce? Is there any air at all over the bump, and is the ride intense/how's the high speed flip? This ride intrigues me, figure its either intense or kind of lame, hoping for the former.

Yes. And Viper, Superman, Raging Bull, Maxx Force, X-Flight... Scream, X2, Goliath, Riddler... The Boss, Mr. Freeze, etc., etc. Notice a pattern? It’s not a space issue, it’s a Six Flags design feature. And a horrible way to treat paying customers.

I got two rides, both in row 7 (where I was assigned each time). You barely notice the bump, though I imagine in the front row or two you might get some amount of air. The whole ride is intense IMO. The launch is insanity. Among my favorite coaster elements ever, and definitely the best single coaster element in the park. The roll is quite fun, offering a bit of floatiness while still keeping up the fast pace. Both the double inversions are very fun. Fantastic ride IMO, even if it’s over fast.

^^ Sorry but I have to disagree with you on this one. The way Six Flags has their queue lines designed is no different than any other major park.

Oh yeah, the launch I don't question. It's basically Hypersonic XLC. I was lucky enough to get on that one twice, and that launch is, to this day, one of the most intense experiences I've had. See I figured the flip would be intense, bc it's so fast, or ya barely notice it, bc it's so fast haha Floatiness? Interesting.
