    Can you name me another Six Flags park that has a 365 day operating schedule? I'm talking about daily operation, not year round.

    I'm not aware of any, but I'd imagine local weather in most other SF parks doesn't really make it practical. We here in SoCal sometimes forget about pesky things like days of heavy rain and/or snow that plague most of the rest of the country, making daily operation impractical.

    62 MPH gust of wind stopped the ride. The cable moved off the rollers on one of the towers which is why they couldn't just restart and move them. Safety system worked the way it should, but it made for a dramatic recuse!

    Same. I would rather see a small dark ride fit in that space. I think a DarKastle level dark ride could be more doable.

    I will low-key miss that time machine to the 90’s. The end exhibit kind of reminded me of the Thing.

    I'd imagine the ride system's age and deteriorated state may mean the ride system needs changing, not just the film.

    Surprise, surprise. Kinda sucksthat ugly track will be left there to rot. Hopefully they'll tear it down.

    Here's a thought: Don't think there's enough space to replace SQ, but what if they added a coaster like this? I think it would be perfect for Sea World's restrictive space.

    Yeah, they don't have the space for that. Plus, they already have Manta, which is not all that different (maybe even a bit better--despite no inversion, it's longer and has two launches). And I have heard that that particular ride is very, very rough. Like TOGO rough. Not good reports.

    Submarine Quest's track will now be like the old people mover/rocket rods track in tomorrowland... an eyesore. Its a shame they couldn't find a way to completely redesign that ride, but if I remember from the POV video it was very basic/minimal. Oh well..

    I'm kinda loving JTA's new paint scheme. I'm very curious to see how the newly renovated ride turns out. Orlando will always have the superior version, but this one always looked fun too. Didn't they remove the aquarium aspect it originally had when it opened?

    ^With the small announcement about SW getting their own "MAKO", can we please get the JAWS-esque tunnel seen in the bottom right

    They could go with B&M and just have the same style if ride with their wingrider model. I would imagine that could be a lot smoother.

    Very interested in seeing the improvements SkyLine Attractions made to this SkyWarp model. We all know how the first one turned out.:afraid:

    Its amusing how much smaller the new coaster/thrill ride looks compared to the concept art lol

    I really love when Sea World really goes "all in" for a new ride by providing new enhanced upgraded marine life exhibits along with whatever ride they've added. Especially when they tie the exhibit into the queue..

    Despite this ride concept being a very simplistic design, i don't care what anyone says... it looks fun!

    Although, not gonna lie, I'd like to see water underneath it & rockwork around it. Can't wait to see the finished product.
