Ok I went to the park and checked out the construction site on 10/19. I saw all the parts of the coaster station by the parking booths for the lot on the rides side. Construction was moving along nicely with many holes and cement walls for the footers up with orange fencing all around the holes. Four trailers could be seen with some huge supports laying on the ground in the area. However, the most surprising thing I saw where two construction trailers, one with the blueprints of the coaster in them (they were huge!). So being the curious boy I was I went over and peered through the window (the trailer is right on the pedestrain walkway to the park and you can just stop and look inside). Anyway the coaster design looks mostly the same but is more in depth. The straight line has a wiggle on this one! I think that means that it will have a zero g-roll. However, I could have mistaken it for something else but I am pretty sure what I saw. Anyway I encourage other people to take a look of these big blueprints in the trailer on the wall.
So there might actually be a zero-g roll. That would be great. It would be a five inversion coaster. I can't wait until we finally know. ----------------- TOP 5 1. Alpengeist, 2. Magnum XL-200, 3. Superman: Ride of Steel (SFNE), 4. Volcano: The Blast Coaster, 5. Apollo's Chariot
I'm pretty sure it's a floorless- this is about the zero g-roll which I'm pretty sure I saw in those huge plans, anyone can take a better look, their right in front of your nose at the park, almost as a museum display. ----------------- sigh, SFNE goes "tiny" for 2001
I have no clue what it will be, I dont even Know why I am Posting on this Forum Cause I dont really like SFNE. ----------------- "Past this point of no return your only choice is freeze or burn." -Merlin
Hey, I'm sure this won't be the last coaster for SFNE. They're just doing an incredible job using their space. Superman even takes up a very small amount of land for a coaster its size. This B&M is the same way. The park has a very limited amount of space to use for expansion so they have to use it very wisely. I think the plan is to expand into the parking lot in the next several years leaving making the lot across Main Street the only lot. There really isn't all that much space on the park side anyway. ----------------- Bigger is not always better. SFNE 2002
Where and when did Six Flags announce this? NO they didnt'! there is no official announcement yet. The closest thing is the sign saying "Coming for 2002, a new steel roller coaster" and that's it ----------------- sigh, SFNE goes "tiny" for 2001
