Six Flags Mexico - hypercoaster announced

Saturday, September 25, 2004 6:58 PM
Six Flags Mexico has announced their new Morgan hypercoaster that was orginally to open in 2002.

See press release in spanish here

The name translates to Superman: The Ultimate Escape and uses the same logo as Superman Ultimate Escape at SFWoA did. The ride is around 220 ft. tall, with a 213 ft. drop, about 5577 ft. long and a speed of 75 MPH (according to the translator I used). The ride was already paid for back when it was susposed to be built, so it is not a part of $125 mil. SF is spending this year. *** Edited 9/25/2004 10:59:14 PM UTC by SFZIP***

/\ I know. Seriously. When did we first see the parts for that ride? 3-4 years ago? This has got to be the longest delay ever for a ride.

It's not boring to people down south-yet. In the last update I saw, they had started on the lifthill. I really like the color of the track.

I think Orphan Rocker was built, but was delayed to open after it was constructed. One of the emplyoees at Scenic World when I was there 2 months ago said it should open in May.

The Ravine Flyer II ranks right up there for longest delay. Isn't it going on about 10 years since the original announcement? At least it's getting closer to becoming a reality. :)

DawgByte II's avatar It's going on around 10yrs for Ravine Flyer II.... BUT... there are no parts on-site for Raving Flyer II, just the announcement & approval process.

This Superman's parts have been on-site for years, so it would have to rank as one of the top delays in terms of "not-yet assembled, but parts-on-site".

Rctycoon2k's avatar Ravine Flyer II is currently planned for the 2006 season, and if all goes right with the court hearings, it will.
