Any news on Six Flags Mexico's Hyper?

How long has been there and what will SF do with it?

Well, I don't think they ever bought the ride. I imagine it's scrapped or at the Morgan factory (but didn't they go out of buisness?)

I don't know what they did with the ride, the track and supports were fabricated, but typical SF intelligence, they failed to get planning permission by Mexico City to build it, so all of the coaster arrived and they didn't even have a permit. I heard it was a terrain-ish hyper, so I don't know if it will go to another SF park

Morgan didn't go out of business. They are now Chance Morgan.

Wasn't the coaster parts delivered to the park?

Some parts were sent to SFM, and some parts are still sitting in Kansas, but it's important to note that the entire ride was never manufactured. If some park wanted to build the ride Chance-Morgan would have more manufacturing to do.

When I visited the park in Summer 2002 there were supports visible but no track. I think at this point the project is dead.

IF (yes, big "if") the economy rebounds as I expect it to, then SFI may be looking at '05/'06 for this.....I don't think it's dead for good, just until the magic money fairy returns...

Personally, if I wanted a GOOD Morgan hyper, I'd have Arrow build it first...;)

I'd imagine if another park were to acquire this ride, the already constructed supports would have to be modified and any other supports that weren't fabricated yet would have to be redesigned. I've heard rumors (not necessarily half-baked rumors either) taking this coaster anywhere from Six Flags Worlds of Adventure to Six Flags New Orleans. Who knows, but it's probably going nowhere for now. But talk about bad planning on their part anyway... I'm sure this will cost them more money than it's worth to them in the long run.

I'd say SFWOA. At this point, with all the capital dropped into that park over last few years. I'd be surpised to see a hand me down coaster constructed.
