I am pretty sure that there is some legality that allows Six Flags to remove and move the rides. For example, for Batman, now Goliath, (according to Wikipedia) it was refurbished and bought by SFFT.

Personal opinion warning....better it go to a park where it has a real chance of operating again.....again, personal opinion.

^ SF owns Batman The Ride (now Goliath at SFFT). SF purchased "Gambit" from Thrill Valley. They then put it into SFNO as Batman The Ride.T hey added the coaster in 2003.

Why do you honestly think the park will not reopen? SF already has contractors gutting buildings in the park. Give it time.

Just search my posts in the SFNO thread, I said my peace in there. I am not going to clutter up this thread with another arguement like that thread has at points.

How far do they have to dig into the ground to put drop rides like S&S's?

169 feet in 3 seconds sounds amazing! :br

And 4.5g's going up! And being pushed down at 2g's going down sounds like 1 hell of a ride! :airtime:

I'll have red wine with my slice of donkey.

^ I really REALLY hope thats not the initial launch, and that there still tweaking it.

Oh and now that I re-read the description, it sounds alot like Dr. Dooms Fearfall at IoA, and I LOVE that ride, but the theming kinda makes or breaks it.

What's with the donkeys anyway?

Those are the actual colors, I was hoping it be atleast a bit darker.

They're still as crappy as they were at SFNO...

By far the worst S&S Towers I've ridden.

That's the Turbo Drop side. I was on both of the towers today, they suck. There are alot better S & S towers out there. The themeing is pretty good though,
