This is why I am thinking Chang will stay. SF STL has more land to store the ride and is closer to SFKK. Heck, if it was only a place holder for a year or so, they could have stored the ride in closed Twisted Twins/Mile High Falls area(they do have entire cars in there for storage right now under the coaster track.) Moving it to the park furthest from any other park just makes no seance at all if only to use it as a place holder.

These facts are true, but do we even know if Chang track is at SFGAm?

I will provide you with maximum pleasure.

Have you considered that the coaster may not be heading to the South?

Unless it's going to LaRonde...anywhere they put it would be south.

I would have to say all the signs are of it going in at SFGam.... I think Six Flags realizes a B&M is too big of an attraction to be sitting in storage than lets say Ultra Twister or an SLC. What it looks like to me is that the ride while get some TLC (Most likely on site at SFGam) before being reinstalled in 2011.

Plus if it was going to "Six Flags Mexico" than it would cost more to take it that far out of the way when other parks are closer to the route down to Mexico.

Thats just my thoughts...

I had seen those pictures before, and it was still being debated whether or not they were for Chang. Has there been any more updates on arrivals at SFGAm?

Nope.
*EDIT* Well there have been rumors that they have stored other parts elsewhere like in the employee parking lot or one of the access roads but nothing has been confirmed yet.

I didn't see the Little Dipper thing coming at all. I wouldn't expect a company like Six Flags to do that.

Isn't SFGAm the closest park to SFKK? I would think if that be the case that it could just be going there for storage. We've seen SF do weirder things. I guess We'll just have to wait for a press release. I'd so love to see it go to SFStL. They soooo need something good.
