According to SFOT's site,
Flashback is closed for the season.


I've heard this one was extremely rough, so maybe they are adding new trains to it. Does anyone know anything about it?

SFoT's web site has not been updated in a while Flashback is open. And Mr.Freezes trains are the same trains

If Flashback were to get new trains, I'm guessing it would be the new-style Vekoma trains. I haven't been on Sidewinder at Hershey since the change (in two months I'll be breaking my 5-year embargo on Boomerangs), but I've heard that they're quite a hit.

Has Premier ever supplied trains to non-Premier rides before (well, other than Golitah Vu)?

I'm sure there's more, but the current trains on Trailblazer are Premier trains, and apparently more spacious than the old Arrow ones. Personally, comparing it with the Cedar Creek Mine Ride, I can't say I noticed any differences, but...

X is the best. Tatsu sucks.

Flashback had THE worst cars of any Boomerang that I've been on. I'm only 5'11" and I was hunched over while riding it. It also seemed slower than other Boomerangs.

Flashback is most likely being removed very soon if not at the end of the season. The ride is unpopular and the space can be used much better. With getting rid of Flashback! Six Flags would have a lot of room for an expansion in that area of the park.

New restraints would make Flashback just about perfect. It's my favorite Boomerang, as it seemed inexplicably more forceful than the rest I've ridden. I don't think seat choice was a factor, as I nearly always sit near the back on these rides. All that said, I'm not sure I'd mind if it were removed...it is just a Boomerang.
