Oh Larry, there are much worse things that you could beat yourself up over, like the fact that Six Flags America is not sticking to the Master Plan. That is a good reason to bang your head against the wall.

Okay now, I was just viewing the many (some of them colorful) posts on this Six Flags America Thread when I saw this:

FROM SCREAMSCAPE
2011 - New Coaster - Rumor - (5/12/10) I’ve been told that Six Flags America has high hopes for 2011. If the park performs well for the 2010 season, it seems that there is a plan in place to possibly add a Tony Hawk Big Spin coaster to the park next summer. Two locations are said to be under consideration… either in the former Two-Face location or somewhere over near Roar.


Last time I heard about another coaster being added to the park, I believe that it was to be a junior woodie (something like the Roller Ghoster at Kings Dominion). The old Two-Face ride may be gone, but the old station still stands, and I could see it as being the new station for Six Flags America's newest coaster (And why not, Six Flags Great Adventure did the same thing as the old station for Viper got reused for El Toro). But now I can see a spinning coaster would also work (Count me in as a favorable vote for a spinning coaster; no other park in the immediate area has a spinning coaster).

Now as for my take on what the park should do with the old Rainbow Falls, here's my suggestion: why not take all four slides out and put in a bigger slide for a family raft slide ride?

:pillow: "That's enough typing for this thread, so why not lay your head down on me?"

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

If SFA does get one of these coasters, then the best places (in my opinion) would be:

1. Two Face's old location.
2. Rainbow Falls location.
3. That huge gap between Superman and Batwing back up in Gotham. I never knew why Batwing was placed so far back anyways...

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Only problem using the old two face station is that it was designed for an inverted track system....how could they work around the hydraulic station floor?

It's all part of the master plan, of course.

Park President John Winkler told me on the record last season that SF Inc thinks SFA already has too much wood.

Don't count on another wooden coaster for SFA.

You can just skip over my posts.

I would like to see a good indoor attraction built.
