April 1988

Six Flags Cypress Adventures made a few changes in the off season

20190329155914_1.jpg


Many fans of the park are rumoring that a new entrance area will be added in replacement of the current one

20190329155943_1.jpg


A sign was added to promote Fright Nights coming in October this year

20190329160207_1.jpg


Unfortunately, 1987 marked the end of the infamous double up hill on Excalibur. In its place is one simple hill

20190329160305_1.jpg


The trick track section of Excalibur still remains

20190330183932_1.jpg


fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo were added to The Last Stand. This is the only ride that has fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo you can rent, but more fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo will be added for the 1989 season

20190330184122_1.jpg


And lastly, SplashWater Falls was testing all day. Looks like they will meet their Memorial Day opening deadline on time

1989

As part of the ride rotation program, Six Flags introduced an "all new" coaster Z-Force for just 1 year only. It was rumored that a Schwarzkopf looping coaster would be built, but instead it turned out to be the unique Intamin Space Diver coaster.

20190907054411_1.jpg
Here's the limited time only Z-Force coaster

20190907054646_1.jpg
The first riders ever on Z-Force, Six Flags is experimenting with the train colors as you can see here.

20190907055230_1.jpg
The Space Diver structure is pretty compact.

20190907055303_1.jpg
Z-Force may be popular, but it looks like the neighboring Intamin coaster, The Last Stand, is still more popular




(On a side note, I am no longer doing the trip report style updates because I feel like its getting too repetitive.)

1990

As popular as Z-Force was, it only lasted one season. As part of the ride rotation program, it was relocated to Six Flags over Georgia under the same name. In its place, Six Flags ordered a new Schwarzkopf shuttle loop called Tidal Wave which is the park's first launched coaster.

Tidal Wave fits perfectly in that spot!

20200121230039_1.jpg


Is the train travelling forwards or backwards?

20200121230118_1.jpg


Despite the popularity of Tidal Wave, its next door neighbor, The Last Stand, did not lose any popularity.

20200121230751_1.jpg


Also as a bonus, Six Flags decided to repaint Twister to brighter colors to give it a fresh, non outdated look.

1991/92

After a successful season with the opening of Tidal Wave, Six Flags took a break for the 1991 season with the addition of a flat ride and general park improvements.

20200122233903_1.jpg


A generic flat ride: Breakdance was added near Tidal Wave. It became very popular among families.

20200123000423_1.jpg


The most significant change to the park during the 1991 season was the removal of the iconic trick track section on Excalibur. Fans of the coaster were upset at the change, but they still agreed that Excalibur was still a great coaster without it.

The 1991 season came to a close with an announcement that the park was getting a Vekoma boomerang called Viper for the 1992 season.

20200123103002_1.jpg


Viper opened memorial day weekend in 1992

20200123104921_1.jpg


Enthusiasts did not like Viper due to its roughness, but despite that, Viper was a popular addition.

1994

Nothing new was added for the 1993 season. The only thing that happened in 1993 was the construction for a new land started. The land was announced as Gotham City with 2 new rides: A clone of the popular Batman the Ride and a flat ride called Joker's Spinsanity.

1995/96/97

Octopus was sold to another park during the off season and in its spot, Six Flags added the popular Intamin looping starship ride creatively called Looping Starship.

20200129214708_1.jpg

20200129214728_1.jpg


Since Six Flags built the Looping Starship right in the middle of the Caribbean Port area, Six Flags (lazily) merged the Castle, Caribbean Port, Gotham City, and the area in between into one area and decided to call it "Studio Backlot" to stop the complaint about mismatched themeing.

20200129214805_1.jpg


To enhance the "studio" theme, Splash Water Falls was renamed "Studio Splash Effect" And the station was themed to look like a studio warehouse.

20200129215058_1.jpg


Flashing forward to 1996...

Six Flags added a HUSS Top Spin called "Buzzsaw"

20200129215659_1.jpg


To adding onto the "studio" theme that the area supposedly has, Six Flags built a Studio Shop and a McDonalds near The Last Stand and Tidal Wave

20200129215738_1.jpg

20200129215756_1.jpg


Fast Forward to 1997, Nothing new was added to the park, but at the end of the season, Six Flags announced that they're removing the carousel by Excalibur's entrance and replacing it with a new ride for the 1998 season. Land clearing was spotted before the season ended

1998/1999

For 1998, Six Flags added an indoor coaster called Runaway Mountain and installed it by where the carousel used to be, but they took out the carousel to make way for the entrance and exit of the ride.

20200131224454_1.jpg


They made the queue area more scenic with the addition of a pond

20200131224507_1.jpg


Six Flags purchased a Pinfari Mini Mighty model for Runaway Mountain, as the layout shows here

20200131224555_1.jpg


For the 1999 season, Six Flags introduced an upcharge attraction, Thunder Racers go karts.

2000/2001/2002

Entering the new millennium, Six Flags didn't add anything to Cypress Adventures, the only change to the park happened towards the end of the 2000 season, where they chose to close and scrap Skyrama, the park's observation tower.

20200203224630_1.jpg


At the start of the 2001 season, a new tower took place of the former Skyrama spot.

20200203225550_1.jpg


Six Flags installed an Intamin gyro drop tower, called Acrophobia similar to Six Flags Over Georgia's new drop tower. The only difference between the Tennessee and Georgia version is that the Tennessee version has regular seats while the Georgia one has stand up seats.

20200203225519_1.jpg


For the 2002 season, Six Flags expanded the Looney Tunes town section with 2 new rides.

20200203230154_1.jpg


Elmer Fludd's Weather Balloons

20200203230134_1.jpg


Speedy Gonzales

20200203230205_1.jpg


Another change for the 2002 season is that Batman the Ride received a new color scheme. Instead of being completely black, Batman the Ride now sports blue track and black supports.
