Six Flags AstroWorld is the latest park to get a Proslide Tornado. It will be installed in their SplashTown water park in time for an April 30 opening.
Read the press release on PR Newswire.

Gee when will this tornado thing end ? lol

Which list is shorter.. the list of SF parks getting a Tornado, or the list of SF parks not getting a Tornado?
Monday, January 31, 2005 1:50 PM
So which SF parks are confirmed to get a Tornado? SFAW, SFStL, SFDL... I know I'm missing some...
Monday, January 31, 2005 2:33 PM
Which is longer... the list of Six Flags parks who have (or are going to have) a Tornado... or the Six Flags parks who have a Vekoma Boomerang?

I think the Tornado list may be longer, which may be a bit hard to believe.

Six Flags currently owns 10 Boomerangs, 1 Invertigo and 3 Giant Inverted Bommerangs (Deja Vu's), so 14 variations of the boomerang coaster.
There are 7 Tornado's already announced or built in 3 years (Six Flags St. Louis and Six Flags Splashtown for 2005 so far).
Tornado slides will be confirmed soon for both Six Flags Darien Lake (on 2005 map) and Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom (using same hint as other parks already announced). There may be a couple of more Tornado slides going to other Six Flags parks in 2005, so somewhere around 10-12 Tornado slides.

The Tornado is the biggest thing since the Arrow Corkscrew. End of story.

I wonder why's the wait so long to announce such a not so big attraction. I can't imagine what Darien is waiting for ?
BATWING FAN SFA

I have a strong feeling that this won't be the last tornado slide we see added to an SF waterpark this season.

Darien can probably get away with waiting longer because it is an relatively obscure place, compared to some of these parks where eventually they have to announce because people are driving past them so often (SFAW, SFEG) or like in the case at Great Adventure, they had to start construction before the season closed, so thats what I think may help the delays. SF is so slow at announcing anyways, you would think they would be smart and do it a month before x-mas to boost season pass sales.

Well, season pass prices go up after christmas at a lot of the parks, so they probably figure that if someone is going to buy a pass on account of a new ride being installed, that they will still by it later..why not wait and be 100% sure the installation will occour and make a few extra bucks for doing so? heh.

Uh, Splashtown and Astroworld are not the same thing. They are about 30 miles away from each other. Splashtown != Waterworld.

The only thing Splashtown has AstroWorld do is their public relations. As Pancake stated, the park is 30 miles (if not more) to the north, and is it's own park. So yes, technically, the title of this article is incorrect. They are considered seperate parks with seperate budgets.

I Think that Waterworld needs tornado cuz its been since 1999 when it got 1 new ride, its been to long. plus waterworld been their before splashtown.
