    I remember I asked about putting a coaster in the woods. Someone told me that it is owned by Six Flags, but they couldn’t build there because it is a protected area. Does that still apply?

    Anyway, I think the SkyScreamer we’re getting will prompt a redesign to make the area completely new. I think we might be getting more than just the SkyScreamer next year.

      Yeah it still applies. That’s why it was the first scenario. ;) It’s the least likely to happen.

    a nice Monster Hybrid would be nice, T wrap around The sky screamer BR and the picnic area.

      That was another possible scenario. I thought about including it but SFNE has said that they looked into doing the Iron Horse revamp to Cyclone and decided against it. It would be sweet though.

        Yes, very sweet

    I hope its a b&m inverted coaster that goes behind blizzard river and the sky screamer in the woods. Or just a new gen. ZacSpin Coaster (that kinda goes back to the survey that they did at the end of 2012)

    6 Flags needs more ride rides that are actually fun.

    This is an excellent post. I love the third scenario you posted. I think more family friendly flats is what SFNE needs the most.

    Dang if they are storing the tilt a whirl in Georgia they need to set it up there and run it. that park hardly has any flat rides. Maybe two or 3 at the most.

    I think you guys should make an awesome suspended launch coaster.

    They should make a Wonder Woman, Flash, or Green Lantern ride.
    My ideas on what the would be:
    Wonder Woman: The carts are little, gray jets (since they can’t be invisible.) The ride will go at about 65 MPH. You are brought high up, dropped a little (like the Batman teaser drop) and then do a full drop and go underground (like the mist part on Bizarro) Then, you shoot back up, go through a series of sideways turns, and then do a final loop and go down to the stopping station. Estimated time: equal to or <45 seconds

    The Flash: They have a Flashpass, but no ride for him? Do him some Justice League. (joking really lame)

    The carts are little, sideways Flash symbols, and you sit in the middle of the lightning bolt. The ride goes about 105 MPH. You start off really slow and go 116 meters into the air, and you drop. You go through a series of turns, all spiraling down in a circle until you are at ground level, and you turn to go left. You go up a small hill and drop, and then turn sideways. You go through a series of turnovers (like the triple kind on Mind Eraser) Then, to spice it up, you go underground into a mist tunnel and tumble down before spiraling upwards and go down a hill into the drop off station. Estimated time: 1:15 or more

    Green Lantern: The carts are Green Lanterns, and the are floorless. The ride would go at about 60 MPH. You start off tracing a Green Lantern ring and then go upwards and down a small drop. You spiral around in circles and then go through a series of 3 hills and then through a lantern-like loop (if not, just a regular loop is okay) Then, you slowly turn into the station. Estimated time: 45 seconds or five seconds lower or higher (40-50 seconds)

    Either do that or just make a big new ride that's not superhero themed. (My favorite is The Flash that I cam up with. That would be so fun! IMO)
