SFGA rumor about SuperMan.

Saturday, October 29, 2005 9:46 PM
Theres a rumor that SuperMan:Ultimate Flight, might be torn down because of death. Some(which means I don't know who) say that if there is another death(or suit), ShockWave will be put back up :)

Wow I haven't laughed that hard in a long time.

(Yes I know I fed the troll. I just can't resist).

First of: ELL Oh ELL!

Second, when was the 'first death'?

Third, 'Twould be hard to put Shockwave 'back up', now that it has been completely scrapped and most likely melted down (except for the lucky few who got a piece).

Fourth, I'm gonna let someone else take care of this kid. Brett? Here's your chance. 'Git R Done'.

I am dumber for reading this....although I got a good laugh as well.

Also, due to an unfortuante drowning Huricane Harbor will be closed, but due to the constuction costs of destorying will not be torn down. ;)

Wouldn't they also have to tear down Raging Bull then if a death is the reason.

This just in ... Cedar Fair may shut down all their parks on account of death.

In response to Six Flags Great Adven-ica's decision to tear down their Superman: Ultimate Flight roller coasters in response to Six Flags executives inability to conquer the human condition of death (note: not specific, just death), Cedar Fair, always looking to take any record possible from Six Flags has decided to dissolve the company and melt down all roller coasters in their parks which will be sold and turned into strip malls. It was also revealed that the failed push to forever rid the human race of death is actually what bankrupted the Six Flags company, not bad customer service or horrendous management as was previously thought.

Jiji Hunan, a monk who claims to know the secrets of life had this to say:
"All who try to figure out death are doomed to failure. It is sad that Six Flags feels it necessary to tear down roller coasters in tribute to death, but even that will not give them the answer. The answer is in you".

(reporter's note: subject moved mouth for 10 minutes after finishing the above statement, then proceeded to do karate moves out the room ... he has not been seen since)

More news in tomorrow's Tribune-Review.

By the way deadman, did you hear they're taking the top 200' off both rocket coasters to try and get them to operate more often next year?

Don't forget that they're adding that extra 400' to Hypersonic.

Oh, and how would they put shockwave back at SFGAm anyway? I think whoever got Shock and whoever got Wave would be pretty upset.

Trying to bring this thread somewhere towards reality - one has to wonder if the rides with big towers (Hypersonic, Dragster, Kingda Ka, etc) might not have been built with this possibility in mind. I'm no engineer, but is there any reason other than financial considerations why Dragster for example might not have been built with the foundation/support strength for another four or five hundred feet in the future?

Brakes and launch. I would bet that most of the compenents are designed to start a train and stop a train going ~120 and not much more.
