They should give them SFWoA's Mind Eraser (Boomerang) and Serial Thriller (Suspended Looping Coaster) to make way for SFWoA B&M inverted and Vekoma Super Invertigo
Is something new coming to SFWoA in 2002?

JP why would they give Serial Thriller and Mind Eraser? Serial Thriller is on the lake and Mind Eraser is on the other side of ride side of the park.In my Opinion Serial Thriller is one of the best rides there but getting out dated by all the new rides.It is still a great ride and should stay until they get another inverted coaster.they should take some other coasters from other parks because they are trying to compete with Cedar Point.
Cedar Point, doesn't get any better then that:)

Somebody here is spoiled...You want to take out 2 coasters which the GP rides and has fun on, and in its place but in coasters that would probably cost twice as much? That isn't good business, in my opinion.

It sounds like the other park in the article will take a while to happen. I imagine the Six Flags property will get rolling (bad pun) first. I'm happy for the Pacific Northwest which needs a taste of what the rest of the country has enjoyed.

Maybe Six Flags will break the cycle of the BTR clone and add a new version of the ride.

I live in Portland,Oregon so for me and other coaster enthusiasts living in the PNW this is great news.I have yet to experience a CCI or B&M coaster.(They always seem to get built after I have visited the park)At this point,I can only dream about some of the coasters that the rest of you Coasterbuzzers get to ride on a regular basis.Living where I do makes it expensive to be a coaster enthusiast as tranportation and logding is always a factor when I go to a park.Enchanted Village is 2 1/2hours from Portland,so going to the park will be a trip that I can do (and afford)in a day.Welcome to the Pacific Northwest,Six Flags!

It's always refreshing to hear from someone who doesn't get a chance to ride coasters that often. Your attitudes are so pure and you still appreciate things like Six Flags which other(more spoiled)enthusiasts bash like there's no tommorrow. I hope you guys get some great coasters, and I'll sure be up there to ride them. :)
Remember, your relatives had no choice in the matter either!

Hey Ron, I live in Portland, OR and I agree with you. For us coaster enthusiasts in PDX, its hard to go to a good park with lots of coasters. But now that we have this new park in Seattle, we wont have to drive 6 hours to Marine World in California for some fun. All we have is Oak's Park which is nothing.

I don't think Six Flags deserves the bad reputation the get. I mean if they didn't buy Marine World it would be gone or very poor right now. I mean look what they did (Medusa, Roar, V2). I think that this is a good transition for Seattle and the rest of the Northwest. Have fun!
AKA V2 at CCN! AKA SFMWManiac at SFMWOnline!

SFMMboy- 600 miles in 6 hrs is possible; here's hoping you encounter no cops, accidents or road work on I-5!
And I agree with the sentiment that Oak's offers no serious coaster thrills, but don't dismiss it.
All of us need to visit our local independants if they are ever to improve and expand.
And what's-his-face couldn't be more wrong(in the article). The PNW in just three years will be able to support the many projects, including Winlock in central WA, that are on the drawing board. His park had lower attendance for the very reasons stated in the article.
Who knows, in a few years, all you folks might be visiting us for a change!
these quakes won't be the only things rocking the NW

I have e-mailed Oaks Park about building a CCI or aquiring a SBNO coaster.The Lincoln Park Comet would be a great addition to this park if it hasnt' been demolished yet.It does resemble the defunct Jantzen Beach Dipper.Perhaps if us coaster fans living in PDX contact Oaks Park management,they may consider building a coaster.By all means,support your local independent parks,as increased patronage is only way they can improve.

Personally i would rather have a Intamin Suspended. keep ST though it has history.
