    Racer 2019?

    Thunder Run was retracked by Amuse this past year, they've done work at Mount Olympus this off season, and they did Apocalypse's last major refurbishment at Six Flags Magic Mountain.

    Racer 2019?

    I'm actually quite opposite with Racer vs Rebel Yell/Racer 75. I prefer Racer by a bit, it seems like The Gravity Group smoothed over any moments to get airtime, at least when I rode it last month, Racer still has some airtime, but it's a bit rougher, so there is a trade off. I think Thunder Road was the best of all of them, it gave great airtime and was very smooth a month before it closed.
  5. Looking forward to more detail! I'll hopefully be down there when the park opens.

    International festival

    Personally I think this is a great idea, it'll act as an anchor to bring season pass holders in, while giving guests something else to do.

    Would a new skyride work?

    Better make sure those have an open cabin design and not enclosed without AC... @Disney

    Future multi launch coaster

    Gerstlauer has been used for some projects, but not a ton of projects, I think their last coaster they put in was Spinning Dragons at Worlds of Fun, then as for flat rides they installed a Skyroller at Canada's Wonderland in 2016.

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    I think the idea of "paying homage" to The Beast is ridiculous and is just brought up over and over again despite being a PR disaster last time, so personally, I think it's unrealistic that we will ever have a "Beast" themed coaster again.

    Future multi launch coaster

    I want what Parc Asterix is getting personally, but I'd be very satisfied with a Mack LSM or Xtreme Spinner.

    IAAPA 2018

    I'm loving all the new stuff I've seen sitting at home from people on the floor! Next year is my IAAPA year for sure, Also with the dive coaster train, I love how Liseberg put their mascot on it, It's a cheesy but fun touch, my favorite news story from the show has to be the new Intamin coasters they announced yesterday for Parc Asterix and Walibi Belgium.
  12. I think there's a good possibility that Cedar Fair is eyeing Seaworld right now and not Six Flags, the only issue with this would be how expensive this is going to be for them. I think it's more realistic than a Six Flags takeover due to their debt sheet right now, however, I can see someone else buying them and Six Flags managing the parks (Six Flags doesn't actually own most of their new parks)
  13. Great move for Six Flags, it creates more value for those around Six Flags Great America.

    Best Coaster YouTube Channel

    I don't really like any mainstream roller coaster channels, overtime they aren't very entertaining and I prefer podcast style media about roller coasters than anything, so I have to plug this Youtube, ElToroRyan, it's very underrated and I find the content to be pretty entertaining. https://www.youtube.com/user/Blasianskater. Then for No Limits 2 stuff it's for sure XYZ Coaster https://www.youtube.com/user/XYZcoaster. Then I really wish Theme Park Maniacs was still a thing... I really miss watching his videos and miss him in general https://www.youtube.com/user/themeparkmaniacs

    The love for Son of Beast

    I have memories of watching the ride but being too young to ride back in 2006-2007ish, (I know it was before Diamondback.) Then 2010-2012 I watched the ride just sit there, as boring as that sounds, Son of Beast fueled me to be who I am today and loving rides and attractions, watching the ride get demolished got me looking at theme park forums on the regular in my free time.
