What will SFMW get next year?

Thursday, June 28, 2001 1:11 AM
I'm confused. I know Six Flags is buying the park from the city of Vallejo and raising their height limit to over 200'. But at the same time they didn't aquire the fair grounds. So since we don't really have enough room for a hyper does that mean we'll get a drop tower? Here's 3 reasons I think so
1) Uses the higher hight restriction
2) Small footprint
3) Thrilling (so they're not just sitting around doing nothing all year)

You don't think they could fit a hyper-twister somewhere?

I think that they could fit a hypercoaster in there somewhere. A hypertwister would be great, and all of the maintenance sheds and employee parking could be moved (look to the side of Kong and Boomerang, and you'll see what I'm talking about.) If these things were moved, it would make the perfect place for a coaster. And if they didn't want to move them, A longer, drawn out hyper (Out & back, more Magnum-style) could be done any number of places. Somewhere over by the picnic groves and Roar where there's still alot of open space. They could run it along the lake, or even try and make it compact and keep it real twister-like over there, too. Who knows, I'm just speculating, here.

Really? That's great! See, I haven't been there for a year so I forget where there is room in the park. :)

Parks have been known to get creative with their space. You'd be surprised. Have you guys ever passed "Dinky Park" on RCT?

I'm 80% sure they're getting a flying dutchman, apparentley there's track on-site

Why on earth would they get one when there is already one that is about 2 hours away? Especially considering that that one didn't fair so well and most people in the area have already ridden it.

I think that SFMW is going to take advantage of the new height limit.

Flying Dutchman? PGA is 90 minutes away with Stealth. I'm hope to see a hyper at this park next, maybe in 2003 or so. B&M I hope ;)

Hmm, a new bathroom or trashcan? I really dont think they get enough revenues to contend with extreme parks like sfmm and cp. You guys are really greedy.

I really hope we get a hyper. The only problem I see is the neighbor issue. Having such a large coaster along the lake wouldn't be considered something to be thrilled about by some people. The residents on the hill have major power over what happens. Let's just hope they are generous when the park presents plans for a lakeside hyper.
