As i was reading the article, i kept thinking how slick they were. They kept saying Cirque but not saying Cirque du Soleil. Of course most naturaly hear cirque and automatically, cirque du soleil comes to mind.

Guess i need to go back and re read the article cause it may not be a true cirque du soleil show but a knockoff.

Also seems many are zero ing in on the show itself. There is the other part of the "tranformed park after dark" I am very interested in that part if it is done right. Hell, i would go just for an awesome transormed after dark and skip the show.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Not somethimng that would make me want to go to the park in the slightest.

Assuming that the show that bears at least some semblance to Cirque de Solleil - based on the popularity of those shows that should result in an increase in attendance at the park and attract maybe more people of the sophisticated yuppie demographic with high levels of disposable income.

Let's not forget the travesty that was "Circo Magnifico" at SFMM! Also billed as a Cirque-esque show...Yikes.

I agree that the other nighttime stuff sounds cool, and again, if any Six Flags park can pull it off SFoT would be one of them, but I hope they don't cannibalize resources and staffing to put on this entertainment and pull off trains at 6pm!

it's going over well so far... opened on saturday, and we probably had at least 1/3 of the guests in the park there for it. people started lining up hours before it started.

Thanks for the update. Time for me to drive to Texas. I would have made the trip there once this summer, but was waiting for this to start up. Think i will plan to be there next week.

YAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!!! :b :b

About time SFoT got a new coaster. I've heard rumors over on Screamscape that this one might be a new layout for a spinner, different from the ones @ SFSL and SFFT. Supposedly it might be smaller, but anything unique is still good...

Now if they would hack away that demon of a boomerang we'd be in business...
if life gives you lemons, squeeze them in lifes eyes and make it beg for mercy :devil:

^ Don't think it'll be smaller.

According to the article:

Parker said the Arlington park’s ride, made by coaster manufacturer Gerstlauer of Germany, will be similar to the one at Fiesta Texas, with an elevation of 52.5 feet and a track length of 1,351 feet.


Looks to be a clone of the Fiesta Texas one.
