From Screamscape

2011 - Chang - Semi-Confirmed - (4/1/10) Just got word from a very reliable source that all the speculation that Chang is being installed into Great America is false. Due to the bankruptcy, Six Flags did not have the funds to ship the coaster to NJ. Instead, they brought it to Illinois to do rehab/repaint during this season at their park and then begin shipping the pieces to NJ after Labor Day so it can be constructed and opened by Memorial Day. I don't know why they wouldn't just do the rehab in NJ but maybe the fact that Illinois already has stand up parts is because they brought it there. More information soon.

I have to say, this is quite surprising, but I guess it makes sense seeing as how Great America had the first B&M stand up and they know how to fix and rehab the trains pretty well. Begin the speculation as to what it will be called and where its going. My bet is right next to BTR when they finally tear down the Stunt Arena.

Not sure if this is legit, but it kind of makes sense

This could be either A.) True, but odd to have it being refurbished far away B.) April Fool's Day joke.


It all makes perfect sense though. Here are the reasons why
1.Great America has had a stand up for the longest time, they're the best candidates to get Chang in top form for a trip
2.Six Flags can't spend too much while in Bankruptcy, so moving it to NJ may have not been totally cost effective
3.Illinois is very close to Kentucky, so moving it there may have been cheaper to do
4.It keeps everyone guessing when the parts aren't present GAdv until later in the season instead of now
5.Gives more time for site preparation and sorting the parts out and prepping them.

I think it's a real smart move on their part to help keep it secret and cost effective

Has anyone clicked the link yet? It's TinyUrl, so I'm guessing it's an April Fool's Joke... why hide the web address unless it takes you to RickRolled? But, it could make sense.

That was a cruel joke!

Oh, that was pretty lulzy. But the annoying part was the fact that the window kept moving around.



And, it's a Rickroll. They died in 2008.

It's an April Fool's joke. Although, I do think it is plausible.

Anyone who believed this is pretty dumb. Remember Christian is the one who said that Chiller was being sold to Cedar Fair.
