I read on Screamscape (which we all know is just a RUMOR site with some substance stuffed in for good measure) that Six Flags Great America may get the Intamin Giant Woodie that Six Flags Great Adventure was to get.

Here is why I think that they wont get a giant Intamin woodie (at least not over 125 feet tall).

Six Flags Great America has to get a zoning variance for anything over 125 feet tall. They have not yet approaced the Gurnee Zoning Board of Appeals to get a height variance. So even if they do swap with Six Flags Great Adventure they wont be building anything over 125 feet tall this year. Even if they take out Shockwave they still need to get a variance for any new structures over 125 feet tall on the property. See this link for more information: http://www.gurnee.il.us/zoning_board/zba_minutes/09-27-00.html look for item 3. This is from a prior zoning variance that they had gotten for Deja Vu and Vertical Velocity.

With that in mind could it be that Six Flags over Texas that does not get the B+M Flyer? That is if they are shuffling rides around.

Also of valuable information is that the next 2 zoning board meetings are on September 25 and October 23 at 7:30pm. The location of the meeting is at Gurnee Village Hall, 325 North O'Plaine Road, Gurnee, Illinois. http://www.gurnee.il.us/zoning_board/zba_schedule.html

Also the current agenda has nothing on any zoning variance request from Six Flags Great America. http://www.gurnee.il.us/zoning_board/zba_agendas.html

I was under the impression that SFGAdv and SFMM would get the wood, and SFoT and SFGam would recieve the steel...

That would be the Eagle, one of the greatest woodies known to man. Frankly, I wouldn't mind getting another woodie. Woodies rock and SFGAm has too few. It would be cool if we got another one, but a flyer would be sweet as well. As long as we get a new coaster, I'm a happy little boy ^___^
