Sounds like New Englands version is gonna be a little taller than Cedar Points version. I know for sure that Teacups are staying, but hopefully the other two will just be moved to another section of the park.

Wow, 172ft?! Thats taller than Maxair by over 30ft!

Wow, I am amazed Great America outdid Valleyfair by having a bigger superloop.

I guess this was Six Flags response to Cedar Fairs take on their RMC conversions, by trying to outdo them with some of the most jawdropping flat additions to date!

Now lets see if Six Flags can outdo Cedar Fair with their operations. *probibly not*

Were on a bit of a hold on that news. Visually it seems Tea Cups are gone but from the talk it will be relocated along with slingshot. So ear to the rail and the listing will be updated when we have something concrete to go on.

To my knowledge the parks in China d Dubi are being built by the same company. Another park already exists in Dubi an possibly in China using the DC characters. so they had to look to another property.

Why would they change their minds? they could make a fortune selling off all the forgotten and never picked up items.

I would guess they’d take them out if too many people forget and loose items. Then again, those pouches would be a good way to cover the parks @$$.

Maybe Universal should add those same pouches on Hulk, and get rid of those lockers.

As long as there’s enough of them so there wouldn’t be a huge line just to use the lockers.

the Great American Scream Machine at Six Flags Georgia will be flipped backwards for a limited time.

Why not flip Thunderbolt backwards too.

Just went to Universal Studios. They require you to put all lose objects in lockers but they are all free and they have a lot of them. Though theres a lot of people that you may have to wait for. Also I noticed that the Isles between them are very narrow in some locations.

So word is out that SFOG Plans to operate there Great American Scream Machine coaster backwards for an unspecified period of time this year. Great American Scream Machine s now the parks only wood coaster since their Cyclone Clone is being converted to a steel coaster. the coaster is a dog leged out and back not too dissimilar to local wood coaster Yankee Cannonball.

It didn't take long but after one year of ownership Waterworld in Concord, CA Will not get the Six Flags traditional water park name of Hurricane Harbor.

That's a pretty fancy sign for just opening weekend.

Strange seeing the park so dead.

Also The new Twisted Cyclone has no skyline. but I can see why it's being rehabbed. it was always sub par to the original and was never as good as Riverside Cyclone. The lockers are horribly set up and with that big area to the right why even put them in the existing building.

Seems Six Flags owned La Ronde is removing their Cobra coaster. Dad no last ride given and off to the scrap heap.

Poor La ronde. Not interested in visiting that place, and probably never will. Maybe the food there is better than other Six Flags parks.

Personally the 2 north american parks are parks I want to hit the most. Unique parks interest me. I just don't get why they are removing it or what they plan to do with the space. it's behind Vampire and there isn't really any extra space.

The location the compact fair like set up on the island. feels more like a Canobie then a Six Flags. Though like mot Six flags it could use a few less coasters and a few more flats and unique rides.

Interesting. I'm not surprised a six Flags owned park has issues. Interestingly though is suggested video off of yours by In the loop tour and the park is the complete opposite.
it was posted back in 2015
https://youtu.be/k7xA6lEays8

regardless I don't know when or if I will ever make it into Canada. If I do I will hit what I can.

That was then. Now it seems like a total dump.

If you had the choice between going to Montreal and La ronde, v.s. Toronto and Canadas Wonderland. I strongly suggest Toronto. Another thing about the Montreal area is that the province its in is french speaking. So there’s a good chance you may need to know a little bit of French before going. Also you don’t have to go to Quebec to have poutine. Six Burner Bistro in Plymouth NH makes very good poutine.

Before considering going into Canada, you need to spend 200 dollars on your passport that can take up to a month to get(I remembered that fun process that went with it).

I know the hurdles and its why any of these parks are a pipe dream at the moment. yes I would pick CW of La Ronde I woulds pick PNE Playland. But If I had an opportunity to hit the park I would take it.

as for the food poutine is easy enough to come by. one of the food trucks at the food festival at LC had it as well. you can also find it at many option up both. but to be honest I prefer the Americanized Cheese fries.

That's a short coaster only about a minute long. I know its an optical illusion but it looks like the lift is on an angle. Quit though which is good. I like the themeing for the CF version better.

And OMG! Look how awesome the train looks! Those restraints look so much better than those boring clamshells on B&M gigas!

Looks pretty good. Though there is one spot that seems to have a rough transition. Will be interesting to see how it rides.

That's a screwy station set up. Why bother cutting to him on the coaster is he can't show the POV. and if he was allowed to film why can;t he post it.

Very cool. Looks fun but you have to wonder how it will perform. In the long run given the short ride time. It's a good first attempt and I hope to see big we and better installations in the future.
