If X-Flight proves to be a successful wing coaster it could be a candidate to be cloned. Great Adventure got the first clone to Batman: The Ride. Is it possible for our park to get a clone of X-Flight? Could they fit it on the site of Dare Devil Dive and the flight simulator? Shockwave successfully fit in that area before. We've also seen the name Dare Devil DIve transfer from a skycoaster to a new Gerstlauer Eurocoaster at SFOG.

I don't really think they would put a coaster there. There's so much room in Movietown, and Old Country. They could also expand Frontier Adventures. They could but it back behind Fort Independence. There are a million better places.

I don't see that happening. They aren't going to touch the Boardwalk area for now since they just replaced GASM with GL last year. I see them fortifying a coaster in Frontier Adventures or in Moviewtown.

OMG I'm tired of having to say WAIT FOR THE 4D! But there it is again....at least the 30th time I'm saying it. I will be extremely upset if we get a wing....not because I don't think its awesome but because its largely known in the industry that this is B&Ms first step toward a 4D.....if they build us a wing there is a slim and none chance they will build us a B&M 4D....wait for the 4D! Especially when there are plenty of other NON-B&M coasters that we are way more in need of!

Well said. I'm all for any coaster-like addition to the park, but I feel as there are some different types of coasters that the park needs more than a wing. *cough* AQUATRAX *cough*

I do not want a wingrider. They are way too slow and forceless, and quite frankly boring.

That would be nice, but as always I prefer that GA adds a coaster like maverick, volcano,...I think it will complete the park as far coaster collections

And you can say that because you have ridden all four of them? Sheesh.
