^Ditto...it wood be nice to see something new (a ride) inside the park and not the waterpark for a change. I will keep my fingers crossed. It might give me a reason to go to the park more than once a season (to process my Six Flags Season Pass.)

^^ Doubt it considering SF is still on the cheap side when it comes to installing new rides. 2012 is still one of SF's anniversary years so chances are SFA will receive something, just not a B&M.

I can definitely see SFA getting a new thrill based flat ride/possible ride rehab as the most likely option for 2012.

In terms of new coasters, a new Eurofighter or Zac Spin seems like the most likely option.

Maybe they bought Time Machine. :lmao:

^I could maybe see a small Eurofighter, but you're on some shrooms or something if you think they would get a ZacSpin.

2012 - New Attraction - Rumor - (5/24/11) I’m not sure how solid this rumor is, but I’ve heard it said that B&M may be in talks with Six Flags America about a future project. Earlier this year we did hear that the park was on the short-list of parks for consideration for a new coaster as early as 2012. Stay tuned.

Thanks. Just when I had hopes that this thread would die out again......

Does anyone know what I should expect the lines to be like at this park on a sunday in June or July? I know this park is known for not being very crowded, but I went a few years ago on a weekday and most rides were walk-on, but a few rides had hour lines due to horrible operations. I'm considering a trip, but I'm not sure if a weekend visit is the best idea.

Thanks for the help.

This just in from Six Flags America....

Six Flags America prepares final voyage for Skull Mountain
Good morning Robb,

Six Flags America announces the retirement of Skull Mountain, a unique hybrid coaster/ water flume. The ride’s last day of operation will be Sunday, July 10. The park is planning to use the space for a new project in 2012 and I’ll be announcing more information on that in the coming months.

Skull Mountain is an incredibly unique ride. I think your audience might be interested in hearing that it’s scheduled to “Walk the Plank” next month. Would you kindly share the news?

Thanks very much for your consideration.

This isn't too surprising as the ride tended to spend more time down than up. But it was a fun flume ride with some intereresting quirks.
