Flashback and Psyclone Magic Mountain

It's always hilarious when someone puts that much time and effort into writing an opus to a company, and truly believes that it will actually do some good.

I thought Flashback had some sort of broken part that they haven't bothered replacing for whatever reason.

The lifeguard story is kinda bull, especially when you consider that it could run in the evenings or in the waterpark off-season--hello!

They probably won't bother putting it back up. Although it probably wouldn't be a bad ride if they somehow managed to remove the OSTRs and install lapbars. Then it might be worth reopening :)

As for Psyclone--Taer it down!!!1!1

OSTR? What are those? ;)

I know about Over The Shoulder Restraints. (OTSR)

Oh, I know.. it's flashback, and it's "Only Standing To Rot".. good one! :)

The Swing Around is a ride that is made by Huss, and it's at Six Flags Great America. It's quite popular. It's called Ricochet.

>>I believe the Swing Around is part of Huss's Legacy series (as many companies call their discontinued or outdated products), and hence probably isn't made anymore.

I think the problem right now is that there are only enough rides for teenagers to do in one day. So, why add big thrill rides right now.

Flying Bobs, and Orbiter are in the thrill ride category though. The park has the thrill junky experience with all the roller coasters in the park. In my opinion, it needs something more for the family also.

>>The Orbiter is primarly known as a fairground attraction. It's a great ride when it's run at its proper speed, but at BGE it's run a much slower (read boring) speed. They probably get less puke that way:)

Our Rip Tide (Huss Top Spin) does have a line, but the line is very small. Do people really like this ride that much? I don't know. It's mostly walk-on unless the Iron Wolf has a longer line which isn't that much.

>>The regular (portable) Top Spin at SFGAM runs a fairly short, tame program. The back-to-back suspended Top Spins at PKD and KBF run a much more aggressive and longer program (I was told KBF runs the same program). I think it would be quite popular as they're more "extreme." Of course, PKD adds a soundtrack and lots of fire.

For MaxAir, I do like that ride somewhat, but I think KMG makes a better ride. It may not be 50 people, but it's better (in my opinion). It's called the Fireball.

>>I know we've been over this before (and if you didn't read my first response, please read this one), KMG only makes the Fireball as a carnival attraction. Chance/Morgan owns the rights to the eight-sweep park version and is marketed as The Revolution. Many parks have installed the park version, including HP and DP.

You can make that Scooby-Doo ride anything. This is one of those laser rides in the dark that I was talking about. It could the Looney Tunes one, like down in Fiesta Texas.

>>The Sally dark-ride shooter rides are great. So far, out of all the Scooby-Doo etc. themes I've ridden, I've got to go with "Scooby-Doo! Ghostblasters––The Mystery of the Scary Swamp at SFSTL." By the way, I'm not sure if you missed a word, but SFFT has a Scobby-Doo version. The Looney Tunes Sally ride--which doesn't involve targets--is at SFOT.

I love flats as much as the next person, but you've got to get more realistic about pricing. For instance, The Revolution would probably set you back two-million(+?) dollars easily. Take a look on-line for used flats and you'll see that your numbers are way off.
