will soon announce the details of its dramatic 2006 expansion plans.


One quick question... How can something be the worlds largest regional theme park? Is it a regional theme park that is the largest in the world? I didnt think SFGadv was the largest theme park... What gives?

I think Six Flags is smart enough not to try to go over 220 ft. with a woodie.


This IS Six Flags we are talking about here :D

How can something be the worlds largest regional theme park?


That is kind of like being the World's Tallest Midget!

In land area, it's the second largest park in North America (maybe the world) with over 1300 acres. The only park I know for sure is bigger is the Disney Orlando property.

I think it will be good....record breaker or not. But, new Intamin woodies dont use steel wheels right? I though i read something about Balder not having steel wheels.

Nobody cares what I have to say

You lucky Americans. Getting all this new wood year on year. We havent had one since 1996 (unless you count the kiddie one up north :wink: :roll: ). Hopefully our 'year of the wooden coaster' will come one day though.

And the debate over whether Balder is a 'real' woodie or not is silly in my eyes (though you are all entitled to your own opinions). Who cares if it uses the same wheels that steel coasters do, and that it runs on laminated track. Its still a 'real' woodie (an amazing one at that!) in my eyes, just not made in the same 'classic' style as others. Ever heard of evolution :wink:

Yeah, but I bloddy hope that this "evolution" will not mean that we won't see classic style!

Balder IS a woodie, but it's its very own class!

I think Intamins wood is a class of its own. It fits into no category so its really its own brand of coaster.


Be interesting to see what they do here in the states.

That's my point. Even though I REALLY like Balder and Colossos, I have a very hard time comparing them to other Woodies. Just like I could not fit a Woodie in a Steel list and vice versa...

Oh well...
