It's confirmed. I went to SFFT on the last Saturday before Fright Fest and I was tlaking to a guy running the Boomerang, I had my TTD shirt on and he talked to me, then I asked hime if SFFT was going tot get a new coaste rnext year. "Yeah, we are. We did so well this year, and since we havn't gottin' a coaste rsince 2000, were gonna get one." I asked him if it was going to be a flyer, and if it was going to be in the place of Joker's Revenge. "Yeah, the company that built Superman are coming back," Of course I thought of B&M, so I was excitied. Here is my therey:
In the 2001 yearI think SFFT was perparing to build a coaster, then in the 2002 year they closed Joker's Revenge. And a t the time I think no one would buy it. So Six Flags waited until SFNO was started, that way they could move it. So I think we were soposed to get a new coaster in the 2003 year, but now that we did so well in 2003, we'll get a B&M Flyer for 2004! And the word BATMAN is in my head.
BTW, I also aked the guy if it was going to have a dive loop, and he said yes. Can't wait for next year!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You sure it wasn't the Dip'n Dot's guy or the lemonade guy?

That's funny nitroman, I was gonna say that I would check with the lemon chill guy first. I would hardly call this confirmation. A track sighting or a press release would be a little more reliable.

So your "therey" is that a ride operator who is supposed to keep this kind of stuff confidential (if they even are informed of that kind of information) told you during small-talk? Please.
You do know that ride operators are told to make up lies or "go along" with stories when talking to guests, right?

Where does "I read it on Screamscape" fit in that hierarchy?

Come on... everyone knows next year SFFT is finally going to tear down the Rattler (I'm sorry, I mean TAER down) and use the wood for their new Arrow/S&S designed wooden inverted stand-up ride called "Rattler's Revenge." It's common knowledge.
Ask about my references!
