Who will recieve the next copy of X?

Monday, November 26, 2001 4:13 PM
There is no doubt that when X finally open it will be a big hit.  SO obviously another six flags park has to purchase one.  Who will it go to, there is a rumor that 2 copies are going out, with an added loop.  My guess are SFFT, because they have no such Inverted coaster, and or SFA who is know for producing rides that are of newest technology.

I am hoping for either SF Gr8 Adv or SF America. Of the 2 parks its hard to say which one will get a 4th demension, but I'd bet it will be one or the other. Both popular enough parks in the Six Flags chain to receive one, but too close to eash other to both get one. I'd lay money on Gr8 Adv.

But great adventure just got a big 200 ft ride Nitro why another, Six flags high limit is 200 ft, and nothing higher, so I would guess SFA, but there are so many rumors surrounding that park, such at reports of seing neon green track from atop superman, which belongs to the Riddler or whatever fabbles.  But there are names surrounfing the park for something wither called the Riddler or Mr. Freeze.  WHat about a Impulse? last year 2 went into a park, this year maybe 3, one could be SFA's.  Gosh I love this suspense.

But then again B&M were sending out prototypes to a certain number of parks and I think the number of parks have already been confirmed maybe this talk about a stand up isnt going to happen, looks liek if its a coaster it either Arrow or Intamin.  X copy or Impulses is my guess ( sorry to go so far into SFA).  BUt why do you think that SFGAdv. would get an X copy?

a 4th dimension at SFA would totally rock!!  but i dont see it in the near future, or at least in the next year.  i honestly think that SFA is gonna take a year off from new coasters.  but it is still nice to wish!!

The next one will be wherever a park buys one. No one will "receive" anything.

In chatting with Fred Bolingbroke at IAAPA, he mentioned something kind of interesting to me. It's possible to build one of these rides all in the same plane, so you could put it on a narrow strip of land. Interesting idea!

X is built on a slope from what I hear.  So it would be very hard to clone it and move it around to different parks.  It's pretty much custom designed, even though it doesn't look like it is.

Maybe Wicked Twister is just the beginning of the long rumored boardwalk project, and a 4th Dimension will be the major attraction. ;) Just a guess....

A narrow strip of land...I know it's probably way out of their budget, but that would be pretty cool over the lake at Indiana Beach.

Where are we getting to with this narrow strip of land, are you saying its liek Hypersonic, custom fitted into where needed, So like factors of this ride like Its hieght and stuff can be altered.  But this seems pretty cool, but uncommon cause Six Flags usuall seends exact replicas to most of there parks.  Batman; The ride, V2, Batwing and X-flight, Viper, Roar, Medusa. etc, GASM and shockwave. etc..

I think SFDL would be a wise candidate for something like this.  It's been now possibly 3 years since a new coaster and one of these would attract people and bring the park a little higher up the chain.

Not necessarily. The basic design could stay the same and you could just change the setup of all of the supports.

Putting it somewhere else wouldn't be practical. In the same conversation he mentioned this thing has more than twice the steel of Goliath. It ain't cheap. No, if you're going to build something expensive, it'll be built to the specs you want and for the land you have.

My predictions would be Six Flags Darien Lake, the soon-to-be-Six Flags La Ronde, and possibly Great Adventure.

are there any chances in SFA getting a 4th Deminsion

Well, at the moment, I haven't heard anything about a 4D for SFA. Here are the park's proposed rides at the moment:

• A 'Runaway Car' Ride (Mine Train from the defunct Opryland)

• An Enclosed Dark Coaster (Unknown)

• A Stand-Up Coaster (140' tall, 3,000' long)

• A 200' Long Coaster (Unknown)

Also, there's a 120' tall Ferris Wheel and Huss Top Spin which may be installed within the next couple seasons.
