This is a nice addition to Great Escape, flying scooters always impress me.
Anyone think the GP will confuse Screamin' Eagles to Steamin' Demon? Steamin' Eagles anyone?

Another addition to the park, but THIS year, is a something that looks like an haunted-house walk through. I saw this in the Ghosttown last time I went, with ads and the empty salloon, ready to host... It's a ghosttown, so Ghosts, maybe ?
An add of the new "Salloon of darkness"
An empty salloon... Is it already haunted and that's why all peoples are gone ? Scared ?

Guys, while I would LOVE for the flyers to be awesome, keep in mind we're talking about a Six Flags park here. They're probably going to be run even slower than Hersheypark runs their horrid version. The sad truth is that Knoeble's is the last park to have the balls to run the ride the way it is meant to be run.
While the park is owned by Six Flags. TGE is anything but a Six Flags park. they have always been their own thing except for the short stint were they had the Loony Tunes themed area which opened with a unique theme not seen before. The news report talks about higher speeds. This is a ride were even a few extra MPH makes a big deference.
Most parks slow then down because the arms are pron to warping, cracking, and braking. Story Land Bought Whalom's Scooters that ran as hard as Knoeble's and the ride had so many cracks and warps it was cheaper to buy a new Larson model then to rehab Whalom's to be operated gain.
