3 Vekoma FD's for Six Flags?

Saturday, January 6, 2001 8:38 AM
The Rumor is that Six Flags bought 3 Vekoma Flying Dutchman's for this upcoming season. Of course , we know that FD#1 is going to Six Flasg Ohio, and screamscape has confirmed that FD#2 is going to Six Flags America. So, if there is a FD#3, Which Six Flags Park do you think is going to be the lucky winner?

I hope that SFGadv will be the lucky winner, that's the closest Six Flags park to my house (execpt for SFA of coarse).

I don't think SFGAdv will get one, I mean, they're only getting a B&M hyper, so they will need a Flying Dutchman to make up for it. Makes any sense, I don't think so....

I think SFMW should get it. That would be a smack right in their rival PGA's face! Kind of like when SFMW added Boomerang PGA added Invertigo

The third FD will probably go to Six Flags Holland. However, I hope it goes to a park a little closer to home.

(Over)Analyzing rumors can be fun and dangerous, I mean this three Vekoma Deal can prove to be a repeat of the infamous Cedar Point 3 B&M Deal.

Well, since they will probably not want two in one region, i.e. "First Flying Coaster in the Mid Atlantic" etc. I'd look more towards Six Flags offerings in the middle americas. Assuming they want the third in the americas at all.


I'd say the only thing we can be sure about is I wouldn't bank on it for the Midwest, or the PA, North Atlantic region.

But then what other Six Flags parks are experiencing fierce competition
, SFO is getting one and they have Cedar Point and Kennywood breathing down their back, (and PKI not that far away), so they have to kepp up to stay in that fierce coaster market, SFA has PKD installing Hypersonic, and BGW not too far behind them creating another fierce competitive market.

What other SF parks are in fiercly competitive markets?

SFMM announced their own remarkable package, and a FD there would be like "Oh boy, that's what PGA got last year", same logic would hold for SFMW.

SFOT is getting Titan, so there out of the running, Fiesta Texas is still beaming off the Floorless, and SWoT hasn't done anything to ruffle their feathers recently. It seems like Astroworld could use something new and exciting to bring folks to their park.

SFEG, not much in the way of competition or space here, but oh could they use it.

SFGA seems to be spoken for with two shuttle coasters coming their way, but SFSL could be a possibilty, but they just got Boss and I don't recall them having to deal two much with big competitors. Wildfire over in Branson may encourage them to beef up however.

SFO is already getting one, and SFKK would be too close to SFO, though SFKK sure could use another major thrill ride.

SFNE is alleged to get SFA's original planned expansion, so they sound set for the year, which leave 匀䘀䐀䰀 愀渀搀 匀䘀漀䜀⸀   匀䘀漀䜀 挀漀甀氀搀 甀猀攀 椀琀Ⰰ 椀琀 栀愀猀 圀椀氀搀 䄀搀瘀攀渀琀甀爀攀猀 琀漀 挀漀渀琀攀渀搀 眀椀琀栀 愀渀搀 挀漀甀氀搀 甀猀攀 栀攀氀瀀 最攀琀琀椀渀最 昀漀氀欀猀 琀漀 猀琀漀瀀 戀礀 漀渀 琀栀攀椀爀 眀愀礀 琀漀 伀爀氀愀渀搀漀⸀ 匀䘀䐀䰀 眀漀甀氀搀 戀攀 欀椀渀搀愀 琀漀漀 挀氀漀猀攀 琀漀 匀䘀伀 椀昀 礀漀甀 琀栀椀渀欀 愀戀漀甀琀 椀琀⸀ 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀匀漀 䤀䘀 椀琀 最漀攀猀 琀漀 琀栀攀 唀匀䄀Ⰰ 戀礀 琀眀漀 栀甀渀挀栀攀猀 眀漀甀氀搀 戀攀 匀䘀漀䜀 漀爀 匀䘀䄀圀 ⠀琀栀漀甀最栀 匀䘀䔀䜀 挀漀甀氀搀 爀攀愀氀氀礀 甀猀攀 猀漀洀攀琀栀椀渀最⤀ 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀一漀眀 琀栀攀 匀椀砀 䘀氀愀最猀 瀀爀漀瀀攀爀椀琀攀猀Ⰰ 圀礀愀渀搀漀琀 眀漀甀氀搀 戀攀 眀愀礀 琀漀漀 挀氀漀猀攀 琀漀 匀䘀伀 Ⰰ 吀䜀䔀 椀猀 瀀氀愀渀渀椀渀最 愀渀 攀砀瀀愀渀猀椀漀渀 愀渀搀 䤀 猀甀瀀瀀漀猀攀 琀栀愀琀 挀漀甀氀搀 戀攀 愀渀 椀搀攀愀⸀  䘀爀漀渀琀椀攀爀 䌀椀琀礀 琀栀漀甀最栀洀 戀礀 渀椀挀攀 琀漀 戀爀椀渀最 椀琀 琀漀 礀漀甀爀 爀漀漀琀 瀀愀爀欀⸀ 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀䈀甀琀 䤀✀搀 猀甀猀瀀攀挀琀 匀䘀漀䜀Ⰰ 匀䘀䄀圀 漀爀 吀䜀䔀 椀昀 琀栀攀 最攀琀 琀栀攀 攀砀瀀愀渀猀椀漀渀 愀瀀瀀爀漀瘀愀氀⸀ 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀ⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀ 㰀戀爀㸀ⴀⴀⴀⴀ 㰀戀爀㸀䐀愀瘀椀搀 䈀漀眀攀爀猀 㰀戀爀㸀䴀愀礀漀爀Ⰰ 䌀漀愀猀琀攀爀瘀椀氀氀攀

Hey lets be nice to PGA they have been there longer and since SFMW has made it their goal to screw PGA over (Medusa is not a flying coaster) I wouldn't br surprised if they did just bigger so they can have braging rights

Six Flags over Georgia could use one, but as another rumor states they are only getting two rides this year. One being a drop tower, and one supposedly a Deja Vu Super Invertigo. If this rumor proves true, SFoG is also out of the question.

Count out SFEG. They won't get anything this year because they are the neglected park of the Six Flags chain. In three years of being a Six Flags park SFEG has recieved Boomerang. I bet it will go to SFOG.

I doubt any other Six Flags parks in the United States are getting a FD. Best bet would probably be Holland.

PT300, I think the opposite of you. They are to perfect park to get the 3rd FD. Why? Because they haven't gotten anything except for Boomerang. I think this would be a good fit for SFEG.

I don't think anymore US SF parks will get a Dutchman this year. If it's going anywhere, I agree with the group who says it's going overseas. That's a BIG if too, I don't see a third one coming at all.

Well we can definately see some new coasters coming to BGW next year.
With the addition of their new Ireland theme this year, coasters are right around the corner.
I think I am going to peek through the fences at SFGAD and see this new B and M Hyper since I can't find a pic of it anywhere.
Will this be like Magnum and Steel Force?

Coaster Chic..
More like Apollos Chariot or Raging Bull.
But check out the news section.

Any way screamscape has reported that work at SFOG has started in the go-Cart area of the park.
this could be a flying dutchman. But i was hoping for a hyper since there is no such thing down here in the south.
