Six flags over Georgia getting a copy of top thrill dragster?

crazy horse's avatar

[url][url]If you have been keeping up with sfog on facebook, you know they are getting a new coaster for next year. At first, I thought it was another tony hawk type coaster, however the last 2 clues have been intamin track and what looks like a section of the tower from top thrill dragster.

Look at the clues here...

I could totaly be off on this, but it looks like ttd.

what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.
Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.
I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

SFST's Season Pass page mentions "New Ride in 2011: A towering new attraction launches exclusively at Six Flags St. Louis in 2011."

The wording of "towering" and "launches" both suggest a launched coaster along the line of Dragster as well, however, given the pricetag on Kingda Ka and Dragster, I'm HIGHLY doubtful that Six Flags would built one, let alone two, of these rides. However, a scaled down version along the lines of Stealth or Zaturn would be much more plausable for both SFOG and SFStL (especially given SFOG's distance from anything even remotely similar).

If you can't stand the heights, get out of the line.

I figure they're getting a coaster next year. If they get an Intamin Launched coster, I'll be down there a lot more next year. If they get a Tony Hawk, I'll still be happy.

What about something along the lines of Wicked at Lagoon? Track looks similar to intamins. http://www.rcdb.com/3534.htm?p=25632

OMG I'd love that. But they have Goliath so I doubt it.

It's too late in the year (seeing as no construction has begun) to build anything close to TTD's size... especially give that new coasters at SFoG typically open in April.


Welcome back, red train, how was your ride?!

Someone who probably knows what they're talking about at another forum says it isn't a Big Spin, and that it isn't 'family friendly', so if that's the case, I'm all for it.

The track looks a lot like that of Anubis:

Especially with the fact that all the between-tie bars are facing in the same direction. If you look at other Gerstlauer rides, like Huracan, the bars alternate NE-SW and NW-SE.

This.

So wish that someone would build a Mega-Lite in the States.

The one at Happy Valley Shanghai ROCKED! Could not believe how much I loved that ride.

Would an Intamin rocket coaster not be too similar to Mr. Freeze (talking about SFStL, here)?

Launched EuroFighter?

blueFire megacoaster is a fantastic ride. I hope Mack sell some of those.


Nothing to see here. Move along.

Has anyone considered an Intamin pre-fab woodie?

Windseeker.

nah I think SFoG is getting a coaster, screamscape thinks a eurofighter. I read somewhere someone did some digging and SFstL filed for a permit for 300ft I think their towering new ride might be the starflyer that Cedar Fair didn't want


Coaster Count: 101 Parks: 19
Steel: 86
Wood: 15

I doubt it'd be a wooden coaster what with the clues being steel coaster track. I'm leaning towards something like Anubis: The Ride. That'd be great. That'd definitely make me want to visit more if it's a good ride.

It's been announced on their website. Dare Devil Dive Coaster - a "euro fighter" more can be found at their website. http://www.sixflags.com/overGeorgia/rides/daredevildive.aspx

They're advertising the ride as having "Country's first beyond vertical dive" which seems... dishonest.

I won't lie and say I'm not disappointed it's not a Blue Fire-like coaster; that ride looks awesome (and has just lap bars to boot!). Perhaps this ride will get me back to the park for the first time since 2007, though.
