It wouldn't be a bad thing, but I'm surprised people are so certain about it (even if it does eventually end up being correct).


The public blueprints include a station layout with air gates included. The setup of the air gates is three sets of three rows, indicating a train accommodation of 3-cars, 3 rows each. The closest manufacturer to fit this bill is Premier

Be mindful that you'll need to get the 4-park option (after selecting a pass level) as they no longer sell the SWO/BGT only combo any longer. The only way you could keep that combo is if you have had it on EZpay before Oct 2018 and keep it as is (passes paid using EZPay don't expire unless you cancel or upgrade).

RMC Gwazi is a 2020 project.

That's what I was looking for, thank you very much!

The cost is about the same (at least right now) for the four-park Silver pass as it was for the previous setup's two-park pass, or about $240-ish. Being a local and not caring about preferred parking, the Silver pass is the one I'll be getting when I renew here in a few months.

Good catch. Nice to know this will have a long(ish) train for good back row rides, if everything else (vertical spike, top hat) is true. Also... yay comfort collars?

But the best perk that they offer out of any pass is the Platinum re-rides. This is good for the entire length of the pass and they can't deny you. They apply to almost all of the major coasters. You wait your turn in line. And you get two free laps for the price of one. The best part is the confused and angry GP when you refuse to get up and the ride ops have to enforce your re-ride.

So the best part of a thrill ride that you get to ride twice is rubbing it in the faces of the people who have to wait more time because of you?

Welp, misery loves company.

Forgive me for playing the good guy here, but I'm honestly not sure I'd be comfortable with that, especially if it meant separating a group. I've never been the kind of person to flaunt their passholder status (unlike those silly people that actually wear their Six Flags Diamond Elite Member lanyards).

Oh please no...

Ok, I can buy into this speculation now. Ironically I think I even saw the plans before, I either just didn't remember or never associated them with SWO for some reason.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I hope it has comfort collars. I like to watch the world burn.

They don't bother me on the ride at all. Those Premier trains are already such a bitch to get in and out of and when you add those things in the whole loading/unloading becomes a goddamn comedy sketch. But given SW's track record with the recent Premier installations, I think its a guarantee this one will have them too.
