Uh, what? SFNE has Mind Eraser, Flashback, two generic kiddie coasters, Pandemonium, and Thunderbolt that are all clones, plus Batman that is a half clone, And SFGAdv has Great American Scream Machine, Batman, and Superman atleast that are clones.

You were being sarcastic weren't you?

It is definitly a nice addition but I still believe that Great Adventure isn't the park for a Wild Mouse. These types of rides don't get enough pull through.

^I rarely see a mouse that is walk-on. They are popular and relatively cheap. However, $7.5 Million sounds high to me for a standard wild mouse. But six hairpin turns screams Wild Mouse to me versus something like Sierra Sidewinder.

I don't mind these wild mice additions, but I don't quite get the names and theming. I mean, it's a mouse, a kiddie ride...trying to tout it as 'The Dark Knight' and being all bad ass just sounds like a bad idea.

As Coastakid pointed out, I meant that the two parks didn't have any identical coasters to the other.

I've always liked that SF generally tried to keep parks that were close together from having identical rides, it gives enthusiasts a reason to travel, though on the flip-side, I can understand why it's an impractical idea - how many members of the GP are willing to travel 4+ hours to another park? As someone who likes to talk to strangers in line, I can attest to how many people don't even realize there's more than one "Six Flags" park; many people I've spoken to at SFNE had no idea that they even made coasters over 400 feet tall.

With that in mind, it makes sense to not want to "hoard" the money-making attractions to only certain parks, but instead spread them around, similar to their kiddie areas. What's likely to draw more money: hoping for tourists to travel to one attraction, or building several in multiple locations?

AWESOME-O-SAURUS!!!

It depends on how SF themes it. If it is good, it might be like Exterminator at Kennywood (a generic ride with great theming).

I find it amusing that the same ride is going to three different Six Flags parks, but only SFNE's will be part of the Flashpass. Good luck to everyone at the SFGA's who want to ride this thing!
All clear....

Dispatch, enjoy your ride.

isn't this one inside? I thought that was the drift, so this definitely makes my day too, I love these things and it's so smart for SF to bring this in, hooray for GAdv!
