    Maxx Force track pieces starting to show up at Six Flags Great America. Something like this would be an awesome addition for SFNE! Pics thanks to the sfgampictures Instagram account.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Six Flags builds several coasters like this. We will probably see these at Six Flags Mexico, Six Flags New England, and Six Flags Over Georgia.

    If it proves successful then I can see it being the next cloned ride! I wish they would change layouts instead of being cookie cutter!

    It becomes cookie cutter if you start cloning it everywhere.

    I get the reference now. I don't really see this going that route. for starters it seems to be using the terrain a big. Its also not a compact layout that is easily tossed in wherever they want.

    Maxx Force is like full throttle. They aren't going to be cloned because they were both specifically designed around the constraints of the parks.
