I wonder if this was planned after they acquired Darien Lake or if it was for another park that got swapped to Darien Lake

I think it's a fantastic addition to the park. It will draw guests to the parks, as will the branding back to SFDL. Now the question becomes where do they put it? I can't imagine this would take up much of a footprint, so I hope they don't waste space.
For the first time in a long time, I am excited to go to SFDL next year
I'm thinking Darien Lake could put in a ride like windseeker. They don't require much space, and i'm sure it would draw some crowds, being touted as taller than the ROS.
They are not going to spend $5 million dollars on a ride that Canada's Wonderland and Cedar Point already have.

As for 2019, I would love to see a name change to SFDL, two trains on most* coasters, Superman returning to RoS, a Starflyer, better preventative maintenance to improve on the large amounts of downtime on some of the rides, and just overall improvements to cleanliness etc., and, renovations of areas (like the Boardwalk or Rowdy’s Ridge).
Not sure if a Star Flyer would give you a more unique view of the surrounding farms, corn and cow pastures than the ferris wheel would?
Sorry, but IMO a Star Flyer or Windseeker would be about the stupidest addition that the park could add at this point. F%ck those ideas. lol
I guess some people aren't going to be happy with today's announcement then
This Funtime Star Flyer is a wonderful addition for Darien Lake. They are a fun and enjoyable ride for people of all ages, so this will be greatly received. Also, I feel the name Six Flags SkyScreamer (even though generic and used at other Six Flags parks (especially the Sky Screamer part)) is a perfect fit for the new ride and the park as it emphasizes the re-branding of the park. I look forward to visiting Darien Lake next year to ride one of my favourite swing tower rides ever designed!
