Next RMC Transformation

Friday, April 19, 2013 3:05 PM

RMC has successfully transformed Texas Giant and Rattler into high speed hybrid coasters. There are many rides with similar layouts to Texas Giant and Rattler. You know, those 1990's mega wooden twister coasters. The ones with their layouts without a ton of air time. Similar to them are Mean Streak, Ghost-rider, and Roar (At both Six Flags America and Discovery Kingdom). That's just to name a few. Anyway, I want to know which one is next. What will be the next wooden coaster to go hybrid?

What a novel subject. Thanks for the fresh perspective.

It may not be fresh, but I bet we get 99 pages anyway...

Mean Streak.

Or Maverick (if it was needed, it would have been done already?).

Colossus at SFMM had been confirmed by the park.

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

The tree in my backyard. I hope they can make that an awesome airtime hill.

You don't need a parachute to jump out of an airplane. You need one to do it again.

Are they going to have it still dueled?

It's called racing. Only Dragons duel. Oh wait...

The amusement park rises bold and are huddled on the beach in a mist

I will guess its The Boss at SFStL. lol

I think The Boss's layout is too compact for this type of transformation.

I'd really love to see Ghostrider get the treatment. It was such a fantastic ride when it opened, but it's really miserable now.

I'd really love to see one on Mean Streak now that SFMM confirmed they would have one for their woodie.

Teddy Bear at Strickers needs this the most.

I wonder if Mean Streak would get more riders if it was given the same treatment that Texas Giant was given. Is the rides unpopularity more because of location or is it more because of roughness?

It would be quite interesting to see how people would respond to a "New Mean Streak."

Or an actually decent wooden coaster.

...or Maverick, I suppose.

The problem with Mean Streak is that it's not really that unpopular, especially in the fall with that haunt on the middle.

Yeah, I get where you're coming from. But it's not like people stop going to Cedar Point if Mean Streak closes. There's still a lot of other rides the GP considers better-Maverick, MF, TTD, and Wicked Twister.
