Full Throttle looks awesome. A backwards launch in the middle of a full circuit coaster? That's going to surprise a lot of people.

Is there an image of the full layout for Iron Rattler anywhere? All I saw was the first drop and the inversion in the video.

Full Throttle's 'tophat' over the loop is cool for sure but I think the real gem of the bunch will be Iron Rattler.

The Screamin' Eagles video was shot at Wild Adventures...just thought it was funny since SF owns their own flying skooters...

Certainly Iron Rattler and Full Throttle are the ones that will garner the most enthusiast attention, but there's good stuff in there. Ig-Night, the Safari Adventure, Cirque Splashtastic....lots of all-ages shows/attractions.

Oh, and SFStL is getting a Boomerang... ;~P

Does anyone know where the Boomerang is coming from or is it new? Seems like there are too many out there right now to NOT buy used.

The general concensus is that the boomerang is from Six Flags over Texas.

Delan, I thought the use of Amazeballs was strictly forbidden 'round these parts. I'm just giving you a hard time.

The last US Boomerang installation was WoF in 2000....one year after SFFT built theirs. That's like some park coming along in 5 years and adding a cool new stand-up...

Ummm... Tophat? Is that what that is called? Really?

One complaint I have (for obvious reasons) with the video is the fact that they used the term "Y.O.L.O."

What's wrong with YOLO? I think "You Only Live Once" is a good marketing line to get people to put their money on the counter for a ticket.

"Come to Six Flags and ride our new coaster because you only live once!"

I guess the reasons are not obvious to me. Is it sexual or overused or something?

I wholeheartedly agree that it's a good marketing line and will probably draw in the masses of people. I personally loathe the line because I know it's origins are from rapper Drake, and thus many people (mostly teenagers in high school) use this line because it's "cool." I basically dislike the line because I know of the type of people that use it, albeit I'm stereotyping here. Typically it is a teenager who wears snapbacks, listens to Lil Wayne, parties, etc. "Y.O.L.O." as in "Yeah, bro, lets' go get wasted this wekeend. Y.O.L.O. (You Only Live Once)!" Whenever someone says this line in seriousness, I cannot help but not take it seriously. It's simply laughable to me. However, I'm sure that I and those that I know that laugh at it are exceptions to the masses, who Six Flags is marketing to to begin with, so honestly, it really doesn't matter whether or not I like their inclusion of it in their advertisement. If it draws in money for Six Flags, then it it will be a good idea, plain and simple, regardless of how tasteless it is.

^Wow....just.....WOW! I should have been forewarned....anything prefaced with "I'm stereotyping here...." is sure to be followed by something closed minded.
