The only thing I can see Elitch's potentially getting is a ride (maybe from Astroworld?) to take the place of Chaos.

Well even though a flat is possiable, the entire area behind it, the pavillions, are never used. I could see them removing 1/2 of the pivillions in order for a bigger ride or maybe even a small coaster.

Well it looks like SFEG is up for sale at a cost of 170 million dollars. Lets hope it doesn't have the same fate as Astroworld, but it looks like it will. :cry:

I have never been to this park, infact I was supposed to go this year but my trip was cancelled, It was one of my last Six Flags parks.

Having been to SFEG...170 mil does seem like a lot!

Although...Flying Coaster would fit so perfectly in Flashback's space!!! :lolr:

LOL!^

I agree, who knows maybe it will, if the park gets demolished for condominiums.

Interesting. I wonder if the price of the park includes the coasters or if they are simply going to do what they did to Astroworld and relocate the rides to other parks (except for maybe Twister II).

Does SFEG have a good collection of flat rides?

From what I have read, there is some pretty strict zoning in place that would keep it from being any thing but amusements. The city of Denver put 30mil into the property solely for the purpose of amusements, and I don't think it will be easy to change that.
