    The park is now teasing of a new attraction to be coming to the park for the 2018 operating season.



    The rumors have indicated that Great America may be recieving a Chance GT-X Hyper Coaster.

    What do you think they could add? Comment down below!

    Railblazer has been revealed, and it's a RMC Single-Rail Coaster, and already; it looks a helluvalot better than Wonder Woman.

    looks a great coaster and I am ashamed to say in a park I hadn't even heard of.

    Agreed that it looks far better than Wonder Woman.

    Question though, what does the single rail bring to game? cheaper? faster ? smoother ?

    What are we all expecting from this latest generation of coater?

    I thought I heard that it's very cheap to do this as opposed to the TRex Single Rail track. As for smooth, I would think it'd be on the level of other RMC I-Box projects.

    I just love how the theming of the attraction works hand in hand with the coaster itself. It's a perfect fit for that area to me, as I can't wait to see what it looks like in reality.

    It's only been a few weeks since they've announced Railblazer and they are already filing plans for 2019. Here is a link to an FAA filing for a 240 foot ride structure to be constructed between Sept 2018-April 2019.

    I'm in town for work...so sad Railblazer isn't open yet. It looks phenomenal.

    Railblazer was a lot of fun. It’s relatively short but it packs a lot in the tiny space it’s in

    Went to this park yesterday as I tried to cram in both this and Discovery Kingdom. Managed to hit all of the credits except Psycho Mouse. This is definitely the better NorCal Park.

    Don’t even get me started in Railblazer. Such a fun ride. The only coaster I really wasn’t a fan of was Demon. Even though it was rough, the corkscrews were pretty fun rocketing through them. Patriot, Flight Deck, and Grizzly were also really fun rides.

    I plan to come back up here in a couple of years when that rumored hyper opens up. Hopefully by then I can pace myself and enjoy the park more. They seem to have a really good drop Tower and Sky Ride that I didn’t get to experience.
