I mean it makes 100 percent sense to theme it back to Superman. Six Flags just bought a park with a red and blue Intamin hyper named “Ride of Steel”, and SF has the deals to use the Superman name. It’s only a matter of time but there’s no way in hell that we’ll never see that theme come back. It just wouldn’t make sense.

^ But there's 3 parks that are owned by Six Flags that don't use it because they don't see a need to use it: Frontier City, Great Escape, and La Ronde.

(for those who aren't comic/IP savvy) Spiderman is a Marvel IP, not DC and Disney doesn't even have fully rights to him.
Six Flags is not able to use Spiderman.

If I'm missing something from this photo please let me know, I've been known to overlook the obvious from time to time haha


I think the post was a joke. Universal has Spiderman's IP rights because they were grandfathered in to the Disney deal. That shop has had both Marvel and DC stuff all year.

I'm so stoked for when this park finally does change the name to Superman and markets it as a brand new coaster and doesn't add anything else because its Six Flags and that's what they do and then you guys are all gonna cry for 6 months about how lame your 2020/2021/2022/whateverthef*ckyear addition is.

P.S. They probably won't even paint it because why would they even bother?

^ To the chain's credit they did give SFNE a super loop along with the Superman retheme a few years ago.

When they turned it into Bizarro I remember they also got their old wipeout reinstalled that was in storage.

But then again this is Darien Lake.

Here’s my way of thinking about it. Yes, there are 3 parks without the Superman/DC branding. But all 3 of those parks do not have the Six Flags name or a hyper coaster that was clearly themed to it at one time. We have the Six Flags name and “Ride of Steel”. It only makes sense.

Just a heads up for Six Flags members. If you have Diamond Elite status you can book a cabin for $60/night in October. That's pretty awesome as they are over $300 in the summer months (without a membership).

Six Flags New England:
Bizarro Retheme / new trains / new effects / repainted
Superman Return / updated trains / repainted
Mind Eraser / new trains
The Riddler Revenge / New Paint and theme

Six Flags Great Adventure
Superman repaint

Six Flags America
Firebird / retheme / new trains

Is it really that unbelievable that they would do something like repaint a Rollercoaster? I’m sure there’s more examples here too, but come on.
