    I think it’s interesting that Bonzai Pipelines is apparently a large success….4 new parks to roll it out next year!

      I don’t think there are any clones of it this year actually. The one at SFMM is just two free fall slides and the one at SFOG will be two tube slides.

        you would certainly know better than I. But both of those two use the same name (as we know means nothing) and advertise the slide as a capsule style launching unit with a floor dropping out and entering twist and turns. They sound like a variation. SF Fiest’s new Bahama Blaster is basically the same thing it appears, again not a clone.

    The original plans as submitted to the city were for a tower with a total height of 385ft, with a conditional approval to increase the height to 410ft, if a competing park opened a taller one first. That’s why the project was delayed for a year. Six Flags built the Texas SkyScreamer first, solely for the purpose of claiming the world record at 400ft, and for maximizing the approved final height of the New England SkyScreamer by meeting the conditions required to build it taller. Since the Texas SkyScreamer was built first, they met the requirements necessary to break their own record with the New England SkyScreamer the following year, by another 10ft. It was just a sneaky way to make sure they could build it as tall as they wanted to, while also assuring that they’d claim two new world records, instead of just one. So enjoy that extra 10ft y’all, it’ll probably only be added to the decorative cap that lights up the top of the tower with the Six Flags logo, the actual tower structure itself will most likely be the same height as the structure of the Texas SkyScreamer. The swings themselves will only spin at the 350ft level, the same as the one in TX.

      They plans they submitted last year was always for the 400ft. version.

        Why did SFNE get rid of Time Warp and why are those type of rides so rare in the US? I remember Palace Playland in Maine use to have one but apparently someone got hurt and they got rid of it.

          Time Warp was a one of a kind ride. Being a prototype, it was hard to get parts. So when it broke down in the summer of 2008 and they couldn’t get any parts for it, they just removed it and sold it for scrap metal.

    I can’t wait to ride this. I’ve been excited since last year when you guys first posted the plans for the new ride.

  • dejavu2001

    im confused the video says that it is 400ft tall. isnt that the same height as the one in texas?

      The park hasn’t announced the official height yet. It will be taller than the one in Texas though, thus stealing the record away.
