Shockwave is packing it's bags

Activity abound at Six Flags Great America. Pieces are being preped for Shockwave? The mystery continues. Where will Shockwave go?

Screamscape has the link, too...in the News/Rumors section. However Shock Wave moving is NOT confirmed, just a rumor.

Where in those pics is their any proof that Shockwave is being moved? Is it that orange trailer sitting there next to it? Big deal. That means absolutely nothing.

Well, looking at the cap-ex for SF, it's a great idea to send it SOMEWHERE that needs a big "new" ride, but they have to have decent SPACE for it.....unless....;)

Seriously though, the longer the ride sits around, the more it'll take to get it up and running again....

That looks like the trailor that was just next to Greased Lightnin' at Marine World. If my logic proves correct, then we should see Schwarzkopf trains on Shockwave when it is reinstalled to GAm.

I'm not stupid, nor funny. Why do I try so hard? ;)

Shockwave has looked that way all year, how is that being preped?

Exactly. As the other Coasterdude said, Shockwave is in the same place it has been all year. Nothing has changed...at all. That's not to say it won't go somewhere eventually (though hopefully it won't!) but there's currently no activity to suggest it's going to be moved soon.

As for the Big Chief comment, it's time to wake up.

All this and no Shock/Wave jokes yet? I'm shocked and amazed! Did some of us grow up and/or mature since I've been gone;)

I would actually like to see it go somewhere, but only if they refurb it. I liked shockwave, but face it, it was rough and uncomfortable, and needs work. Maybe it will eventually go as nate said, but its not going now by the looks of things(though I wouldn't be too aweful suprised if it was a last min. new ride next year, though I doubt it. It just wouldn't suprise me, thats all.)
