They don't have a drop tower yet, do they? They could do something like Lex Luthor at Magic Mountain.

Since sfne is putting in a record breaking sky screamer, i wonder what other parks are getting?

Lol. I've heard rumors that gadv wanted to bolt a drop tower to Ka. That'd be awesome.

I figured on something major for next season. 40th Anniversary is a pretty big milestone. I'm betting drop tower, although my preference would be for a coaster.

Maybe SFGAdv's breaking the ceasefire in the "War on Lines" and they're going to add a record number of cheap fairground rides!

Do they have a 400 foot Star Flyer yet?

How could they possibly build one when there's never been one there before? That just doesn't even make sense.

Either a 500 ft coaster or one that does 200 mph.

Heck, why not the first amusement park in space?

The world's fastest spinning wild mouse coaster.........speaking of coasters I am trying to picture where they would have room to put possibly a wing rider coaster or something to that effect. My money is on the drop tower attached to KA.

World's largest wing rider or a drop tower. They've already got a huge B&M collection though, so I'm thinking drop tower. Blech.

If it is a drop tower on the backside of Ka, how feasible would it be to get people back there? I don't remember there being any paths all the way back there at the current moment. Would Six Flags want to build a path back there just for that one ride?

Why do that when they've already got Kingda Ka? I know this sounds crazy, but they might as well tear down Kingda Ka to build a taller/faster/better ride. And while're at it, give it lap bars, not shoulder harnesses.

They could use the original Kingda Ka queue that goes right under the launch area as part of a path to a drop tower.

There are some pictures of the old queue here:

I have read several people report that Rolling Thunder will be taken out at the end of the season. This could be the location of a new coaster.

I don't know. I don't see them taking out Rollong Thunder. If they get something record breaking, I doubt it's a coaster.

Maybe Rolling Thunder will get the RMC treatment like NTG and Iron Rattler. That would give it two uniquely awesome woodies at the park. Wait, then it wouldn't still be a woody. Still, it'd be a good idea.

BTW, the reason stated was rotted wood and is the same reason that the coaster had been closed recently.
