Ok can anyone confirm this? I have been told by some friends that they are spotting Six Flags Helicopters up near I-95 north of Orlando. Near a town called OSTEN. I think they said Mims Road & Rt 46? Apparently a bunch of land has been sold for a while now and things have been tight lipped. With the talk of Six Flags selling property to reduce the debt, maybe it it just to bring some coasters to this Rumored Florida land??
Any other Floridians heard this? I am new to Florida(Nov) and have heard nothing of this until now.
Well, with all that planning (and I've seen this rumor even farther back than '99), it should be one heck of a park when it opens!
In all seriousness, with the troubles Six Flags has been in recently, I think it's safe to say any rumors of a new Six Flags park in Florida will remain mere rumors. *** Edited 6/27/2006 12:52:58 AM UTC by GregLeg***
Actually they are checking out some empty land. When they close all the parks they will store the rides from the defuct parks on that land. When they start rebuilding SFNO they will install all those stored rides in SFNO.
^But four of their copters are down for repairs. Two are pretty much completely out of commission, old Hueys (circa 1969) and can't get parts. The one working copter, works occasionally in the Batman Thrill spectacular, where it is suspended from a cable and smashes into Gotham City.
Actually, Boblogone, they are unmarked. That way, when they move a whale like Shuka, they do not draw attention. People just sort of look up, see a whale flying over head and think: oh, that's just a whale flying over head.
