I saw the pic at yesterday so it looks like a B&M flyer is a go for SFGRADV.

This appears to be a first for SF to actually post an announcement of sorts for a new ride on park grounds,usually SF waits till an announcement is made via the local media or the SF homepage for the given park.

Maybe they are just trying to reassure park guests that a new ride is coming in 03 in an effort to boost season pass sales before the end of the season,I wonder if we'll see this same advertising at SFA this season? because after all SFA is definately getting something in 03.

Yea maybe Six Flags has finally heard what we have been saying for so long. Now on October 23 when they announce it they should also announce that 2003 season are also on sale.

Maybe it's just me, but that pic looks fake as hell. I believe a flyer is coming like everyone else, but that picture looks strange, especially given the location. Why would so many people be standing so close behind the sign? Seems odd that they would place it such that it obscured the "Tram Stop" sign. Looks like a hoax to me!

Well odds my bodkins!! This is unusually early for GA to be making an announcement. We'll see on the 23rd.

I was at Great Adventure yesterday. The picture is real. They placed it right as you walk into the park so that everyone will see it in hopes of boosting season pass sales.

So that makes two Six Flags B&M flying coasters for 2003. 1 for Great Adventure and the other at Great America. Both seem to be taking on SFoG's Superman theme...

Medusa Mining Company was a biiiiiiiiig stretch. This should be humorous.

also remeber in that article that came out a little while ago, it stated that 4 six flags parks will be getting new rides in 2003. I think that SFOT will also be geeting a B&M Flyer.The other im not sure, maybe Jazzland. I think that Jazzland will be getting Shockwave from SFGAM.

Very nice. Now they can justify having all that superman merchandise in the park.

Jazzland has already been announced. They are getting a Batman The Ride clone. The only thing we don't know is the name.

Also sorry but SFA was NOT in the line up for new coasters this year. Batwing Fan SFA you will just have to wait another year. You guys got so much in the past couple years anyway its not funny. Just give it a rest if you get a coaster great I'll be going there if not so be it.

RollermanStan, I actually think SFFT might be getting a B&M flyer with a different theme obviously to replace Joker's Revenge.

I would look for SFOT to get some sort of drop tower(s) and a few smaller additions like I've heard from Screamscape and several others Texas coaster sites.

Also, I never saw anything that said other parks besides those four wouldn't be getting something new...

accutually jeremy the sign is maybe a good 10-15 feet in front of the "tram stop" sign, the camera angle is just playing a game of perspective. and yes, i was at the park on saturday. the sign is there.

You nutcase!!! Count on you for some some stupid phrase like that. I still love you though :)

Koaster KingKoaster King you might have a point there. If SFOT doesnt get one then SFFT will. Either youll be flying in texas next year.

It just looks fake becuase the sign is very new. There is no dirt on it very clean.
Monday, September 23, 2002 11:54 AM
lol yea give it time. Things at SFGADV tend to get dirty really fast ;-)

rollergator's avatar The sign LOOKS real, but with NO typos it's hard to believe it's an SF original....;). Congrats to our coasting friends in Joisey....

I wouldn't be so sure about that Medusafanatic,there are quite a few indications of a new ride,probably a coaster coming to SFA in 03,first off we've got quite a few hints from park staff as well as a few changes for this year's frightfest.

Just last week I posted what I heard about a flatbed tractor trailer having been spotted entering the SFA parking lot,(of course my topic was closed rather quickly )and according to SFA's homepage the haunted hayride is being changed for this year,instead of the usual trail of terror haunted haywagon the park is doing a halloween lights hayride.This is totally out of character for SFA to do which might mean the hayride will be in a different section of the park instead of in the woods behind Batwing because that's where the new coaster is rumored and most likely to go.

Of course we got the shaft in 02 but I don't think SF will do that to us in 03,especially with PKD getting a new ride again and after not adding a ride to SFGRADV which SF claims hurt their attendance levels now I doubt that they want that to happen at SFA.
