2015 Rumors
« on: September 20, 2013, 12:55:24 PM »
From Sceamscape  today:

"2015 - New Coaster - Rumor - (9/20/13) Iíve heard this rumor on and off ever since Six Flags Great Adventure announced that Rolling Thunder would be removed, but it seems very likely that the park will be tapped to install a new wooden coaster for 2015. Chances are, this could be a similar creation to Goliath from RMC going into the Chicago area park, but Iím not sure if that is the right thing to do. Sure, a crazy RMC is going to get peopleís attention as it will thrill you and send you through inversions, but with Rolling Thunder gone, what the park really needs is just a basic classic regular wooden roller coaster experience for the smaller thrill seekers to start with before they try to tackle El Toro. Something like GCIís great Gold Striker installed at Californiaís Great America earlier this year would be perfect. "

Ehh. Grain of salt. My best guess would be that they might watch how the ride at SFGA is received? Either way, a mild RT like replacement is not on the horizon. Introducing a few more family flat rides is a possibility though.

I don't see Great Adventure building an RMC because it will directly compete with El Toro. I don't see why they would want to do that. I still think a Dive Machine would be cool, so much better than those stupid wing coasters.

My thoughts exactly. Big improvements are definitely coming though. I just don't believe it will be in the form of RMC

I have my money on a family-esque launch coaster. They already got pretty much everything covered on the checklist, just sans one family ride.

Wing riders are forceless and boring. I would rather get something else.

Probably not gonna happen. I could think of a lot of coasters with a much better return on investment for the money as well. With us already having Nitro and Kingda Ka a giga coaster wouldn't be the choice.

I think they should put something in the Chillers station. Maybe an lsm launched coaster from one of the many companies making those now. It could be complete circuit and have the brake run run through the other side of chillers station. Or that could be a second launch of some sort that flies through the station which would be a really cool effect.

If it reopens that area back there again I don't care what it does. Another Enterprise would be a nice addition back into the park's flat ride lineup.

we need a "like" button for the message board posts.
I dont see another Woodie like at SFGA either to similar with Toro
parks needs something unique and we all know it will be a "record breaker" as they always do with the park being the biggest in the chain

I always thought el toro would have been longer and more like the voyage before they announced it
I still think its to short of a ride

time will tell

Nah.  Zac Spins are fun, but low capacity and won't bring in the crowds like a 300 foot tall Intamin giga coaster with a 85 degree first drop and 6,000 feet of track. ;-)

I had a dream about a coaster with cable/chain hung seats once. Badass.  :)

"Instead of Adding a new coaster, We're giving Nitro a cable lift!" Wouldnt that suck?
