SFKK to receive coaster in 2003

Friday, October 25, 2002 1:10 PM

Footer markings are now present on site around the Tin Lizzies Antique car ride in the front half of the park. The cars are rumored for re-location. Word is, the markings are definitely for a coaster, most likely new to SFKK, coming from another park..... hmmmm.

Stay tuned for details.

Well they won't have to ship it far. Lousiville is a hop skip and a jump down 65 from Chicago.

Of course maybe we are looking at Viper/Tidal Wave?!

So will it be Shock or Wave? ;)

Do they even have enough space to put it there, beacuse even on that lot next to Chang doesn't look big enough.

I hope it's the whole thing ! Bonus, is that I actually get down to SFKK once and a while...I still get to ride Shockwave !!! :) This and Chang will make an impressive skyline for KK. Only downside is that it ain't gonna draw anyone from Chicago or Cinci to the park.

Well Six Flags did say that Shockwave would be relocated. This seems like a good indication as to where.

People said that it was an impossibility; Shockwave would not fit. Naturally I didn't beleive it.

How did the rumor get started that Shockwave would be split? Wouldn't Arrow have to supply some extra parts if that were the case, such as a new lift hill and chain, trains, etc.? That doesn't seem likely.

It's a joke. As in made up, sort of like Magnum is sinking.

It has now taken on a life of it's own.

The Shockwave split rumor was started as a joke in an older thread. I think the joke was that SFAW would get half and some other neglected SF park would get the other. I can't believe the way that actually took on a life of it's own. I actually saw posts about it on other boards.

I am more inclined to believe that if the coaster does indeed come from another SF park... it would most likely be the former Viper from SFOG. I certainly hope so. I doubt the land could fit Shockwave, nor would I want it to ;-)

I vote for Viper. Never ridden one o' those shuttles before. I've ridden too many Arrow megaloopers.

I am hoping for Viper. It would be much smarter for them and will be more enjoyable than Shockwave. Shockwave would not be that good at SFKK, however SF could try to fool the GP and put in a new name, new paint and maybe some of the GP will believe it's a new coaster. If they do get Viper, I will make a stop there. If they get Shockwave I will skip it.

Maybe they will give Viper a new name new paint and people will think its a new coaster. Whats the difference?

Shockwave is 15 years old, Viper is over 20.

They are both old.

-Brent (who really doesn't care one way on another, both will be a nice addition)

As one of the people responsible for starting and perpetuating the Shockwave joke I, too, was surprised just how many people believed it. Heck...a webmaster of another popular coaster website actually posted in his rumors page that "Sources say Shockwave is headed to SFAW." Ain't that a Scream[scape]?

Moosh - glad Jeff thought it was funny ;-)

Oh Viper, that is a possibility. I'm just glad they are getting something. The park is lacking a sit down looping coaster. Either would make a great addition to me.

This ride needs a good state name. Indiana Beach has "Hoosier Hurricane", Michigan has "Wolverine Wildcat", they could call this coaster "The Hollerin' Hillbilly".

Or...could this explain the orange Intamin track seen west of SFStL on I-70? Intamin is said to have a VERY busy year and Six Flags loves those Impulse coasters!

You know Moosh,

I will readily admit to reading Screamscape... it can be quite entertaining. However it grates my nerves how once "word" is out about something it ends up getting posted on Screamscape as to make it seem "they" knew it all along.

Currently Lance has a statement under SFKK's header saying something about possible flat rides and "they will probably get something new." (There's a stretch... a new flavored icee could be considered a new attraction!) But, now that "word" is spreading around about sighted markings we may soon see something on Screamscape along the lines of "As I have been reporting, SFKK will be adding a yet undisclosed coaster for 2003." Sheesh.

As for these markings, I will be on the fairgrounds tomorrow (totally unrelated to SFKK... I am not a footer chaser) but it will require I drive right by the area in question. I'll look for them as I pass. If time permits I may drop into the park to have a looksee.... ugggh.

I still claim it rumor only until I see track arrive. I totally trust my source.... but seeing is believing.
