Two 4D coasters coming to two northeastern parks?

Saturday, March 2, 2002 9:34 AM
On the update to the COASTERnet website, about halfway throught the update it says that two 4D coasters called Delerium and Quantum will go to two northeastern Six Flags parks. The only northeastern parks are SFNE, SFDL, SFGAdv, and the Great Escape. That means that your park has a 50% chance of getting one of them. Will see what happens.

Don't count on it. How many coaster rumors actually come true? Not many!

for "proof" that this is a RUMOR, just consider this...there are NO coasters by either of these names in any SF parks already standing....j/k, we all *know* that the SF "creative team" is a hard-working bunch of conceptual geniuses! On second thought, maybe we should just be thankful that they SAVE money on creativity so they can spend more on coasters...;)

It was typed and posted like it was news not a rumor. They used the words 'will go' is the post. But you're right, nothing is ever news until it's announced.

Rumors are 99% total crap. I'm sorry, that's the truth. I wish there were 2 4ds coming to the Northeast, but it's not true.

I doubt that is the case. Who names a ride so far in advance? Wicked Twister's name really came down to the wire as I remember it correctly.

Bull crap. Now if it said Arrow's two newest 4D's, X and X, then I might believe it.

Seriously though, thats not true.

I remember seeing some artwork depicting 3 available 4D layouts. I am quite sure that Delerium and Quantum were indeed the names of the designs, as was a third design. As far as who/when/where/if these other designs get built, it is NOT confirmed.

Didnt Arrow announce saying that NO PARKS had plans to purchase a 4D coaster, until they can see X in full swing of the season (summer lines). I believe that is what Arrow said.

This piece of news could be true, because I am quite certain that ARROW did realese a news item saying they had sold 2 more 4D Coasters that would come in 2003, but they would not reveal the parks. Instead they would let the parks announce them instead.
Also, I can confirm that Delerium and Quantum are the names of new designs for the 4D Coaster because I have seen pictures of the designs.

Delerium has all of the elements of X, but with some of them in a different order(The 2 Diving Loops come back to back)
Quantum does not look terribly exciting(No Dive Loops and shorter than X) but some seem to have some nice Airtime Filled Hills

six flags would never put them so close. in my opinion one would go to sfgadv and the other would go to a texas park or sfgam

If that rumors true, theres a very good chance that the Great Escape would receive one then. The park has finally gotten approval for new rides, and theres alot of available land where they could put one of these rides in. Not to mention that ive been told that the park will be getting new coasters from a member of the queensbury planning board. so hopefully this is true :)

Damn, X's stats absolutely MURDER those four designs! I guess SFMM *really* wanted to make X one of a kind.

92' is hellasmall. I wonder if any park will go with a taller version any time soon.

This is why SFMM labeled themselves the Xtreme Park. They really wanted to take Arrow's unique prototype design and push it further than Arrow had imagined for the first of its kind. A 190 FT lift, 76 MPH, 3565 FT long, and a 215 FT first drop. That's X-treme, considering how Arrow's other previously offered 4D designs are a lot more tame.
