SFEG needs new rides, but more upcharge attractions are not the answer. IMO this is not what will bring more people into the park. I want a coaster! ----------------- "If somebody throws a rock and knocks a man off his donkey, do we say that he's stoned off his ass?
I am going to have to disaggree to a certain point with you Mustang. I do believe that its about time that they installed something noteworthy, however, an upcharge attraction may indeed be something else they should consider.
An S&S Insane sounds like a possibility since they already have a drop ride, and the Insanes take up very little real estate. It would be nice to see an Arrow Mad Mouse or an Impulse, however, and like I have said in the past, it highly depends on their yearly attendence figures and research.
I have never been there because there is nothing in that park , with the exception of Mr.Twister, to travel all the way from NYC. I do know though that this park is in dire need of 'anything' new! If the people that manage this park have any buisness sense then they would get a nice 4.500ft+ rollercoaster. B&M or Intamin or another woodie!
Do they even own that? I think is they could have expanded that way, they already would have. Yo do make a good point. I think they should move the waterpark off park property to a new location (ala Soak City) and combine that with the empty space and there will be the location for any new coaster. Edit: What's that green/white thing next to the waterpark? A wave pool? ------------- CP! Still the coaster capital of the world in 2002! My fellow Americans; Let's Roll! WoodenCoaster.com

They could buy that land bigkirby, and they probably wouldn't have expanded it yet because Six Flags has neglected SFEG the past few years, I think a new coaster is exactly what they need, but not another clone!!! Something new, something great, a stand up would be nice, I don't think it will be anything like a hyper, Elitch's isn't ready for that, and they could always go around the perimeter of the park, and I don't see why they can't also build a parking garage and go into to the parking lot for space, but than again money is a big factor. And also, who knows what this ride will be, we don't know it is a coaster, but I hope it is!!! There is also some land across the river on both sides of the Ocean Journey Aquarium, I know there was already a forum about that land a couple months ago, but there is a lot, that could be a site for future expansion, not any time soon, but in the future possibly. *** This post was edited by Denvers-coasters-suck on 11/29/2001. ***

Legendary said: S&S attraction eh...then my official guess is one a 'dem purdy S&S Absolutely Insane models. I can't see them getting a drop or shot tower with the Intamin they already have. SFEG getting a new ride though...wow, that hasn't happened yet this millennium! ----------------- "That's BS you MF! They're WT!" -- CP's R&D team
Actually they have gotten a new ride this millenium, but just a turbobungy I think is what they called it, it is one of those flatland rides where your on a trampoline and on cords and you jump around and stuff, not that this is anything big, but it is a new ride.
Exactly PT300, here's a good analigy, Six Flags are the parents, and Elitch Garden's is the child, a child needs food to surive, you must feed it food, you must feed a park rides to survive, or else it starves to death, or goes out of business. And roller coasters are like big meals, and flatland rides are like snacks, and a kid can't live his intire life on snacks!
