I didn't see the news so I might be wrong (or the news might not have said anything) but the local nbc news has a segment I believe is called "tomorrow's headlines tonight" where they say what stories the newspapers are working on. This might be where the story came from.
Curious to see if they'll separate the "new" Mardi Gras area from wherever it is that Superman is supposed to reside (Gotham on the parking lot). Or Superman could just keep hanging out in the French Quarter. No shortage of crime, there.

Superman technically already resides in Orleans Place, though the park did a good job blending the two themes together. I'm sure the "new Mardi Gras" area will simply be a spruced up Orleans Place, and that it will look pretty similar to what it does now. I'm quite sure there won't be any changes to Superman's theming.
As for "Gotham on a parking lot", well, you're mixing up your Superheroes. :)
Metropolis! I meant Metropolis! [ducking from comic book afficionados]
I was just wondering if they'd use the opportunity of the theme upgrade to possibly carve out an independent, mini Metropolis-themed area around Superman; like what they did with Batman... without resorting to a full-blown themed section.
Here's hoping they add a replica Pat O'Brien's. Perhaps a "Hurricane"-themed flat? Of course, if Six Flags wanted to be truly authentic, they'd recreate the lovely smell of the French Quarter in the morning, complete with freshly hosed-off sidewalks. *** Edited 1/17/2004 6:16:12 AM UTC by Olsor***

That kinda sounds like a swinging ship, but the park already has one. Any ideas?
Are any of SFGrAm's older rides being removed?
It sounds like a disco to me. And the only other ride that is being removed that I know of is the A-merry-go-round in County fair. But in the article it says they're moving it to somewhere else in the park.
Way to go SFGAm! Ive allways thought it strange that we had a virtual "themeing no mans land" after you went under the train bridge to the covered bridge that brings you to Gothem/Yankee Harbor. This should fix that and add some rides to an area that is sorely lacking some.
