Six Flags Cypress Adventure is debuting SplashWater Falls! This new water ride will guarantee cool you off in the hot summer days! Also coming to Six Flags Cypress Adventure is the all new Six Flags Fright Nights Halloween event coming in October of 1988! It'll be all fun and games in the day, but get ready to face your biggest fears at night!
Six Flags Cypress Adventures made a few changes in the off season
Many fans of the park are rumoring that a new entrance area will be added in replacement of the current one
A sign was added to promote Fright Nights coming in October this year
Unfortunately, 1987 marked the end of the infamous double up hill on Excalibur. In its place is one simple hill
The trick track section of Excalibur still remains
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
And lastly, SplashWater Falls was testing all day. Looks like they will meet their Memorial Day opening deadline on time
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.
Here's the limited time only Z-Force coaster
The first riders ever on Z-Force, Six Flags is experimenting with the train colors as you can see here.
The Space Diver structure is pretty compact.
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.)
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!
Is the train travelling forwards or backwards?
Despite the popularity of Tidal Wave, its next door neighbor, The Last Stand, did not lose any popularity.
Also as a bonus, Six Flags decided to repaint Twister to brighter colors to give it a fresh, non outdated look.
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.
A generic flat ride: Breakdance was added near Tidal Wave. It became very popular among families.
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.
Viper opened memorial day weekend in 1992
Enthusiasts did not like Viper due to its roughness, but despite that, Viper was a popular addition.

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.
Overview of the all new Gotham City section of Six Flags
Entrance to the land
Joker's Spinsanity. The queue goes through the Axis Chemical Plant where Joker became Joker
Batman the Ride's entrance. This B&M became one of the most popular coasters in the park, just behind Excalibur and The Last Stand
Signature crashed police car in the queue
1994 also marked the end of Octopus for good this time. A new flat ride will be replacing it in 1995
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.
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.
To enhance the "studio" theme, Splash Water Falls was renamed "Studio Splash Effect" And the station was themed to look like a studio warehouse.
Flashing forward to 1996...
Six Flags added a HUSS Top Spin called "Buzzsaw"
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
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
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.
At the start of the 2001 season, a new tower took place of the former Skyrama spot.
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.
For the 2002 season, Six Flags expanded the Looney Tunes town section with 2 new rides.
Elmer Fludd's Weather Balloons
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.
