Maybe Musik Express and Autobahn will make their long awaited return.

I doubt that musik express will because apparently it was sold (rumor) or was severely damaged during Irene (rumor)



Expect old country to return in 2014 with an intamin lsm launch like maverick or a B&M 4D in Chiller's old footprint.

How do you know about this? Is it a rumor, or is it something you wanna see?

Those types of rides are still manufactured. Chances are that a brand new Musik Express will come.

That's just my guess because we should be getting something (probably a roller coaster) in 2014 because it is the parks 40th birthday. I would assume it to be very big, and in my opinion, that's huge!

But then again, maverick did cost 21 million so I won't hold my breath..

I'm hoping for a Maverick-like coaster too! It is a lot, but if it's the only coaster we get for, say 5 years after that, because of the cost... I'd be fine with that! That leaves those 5 years for paint jobs, theme enhancements, and other improvements that we've been waiting for.

All in all, I just want a GCI, an LSM Launch by Intamin, and I think our park will have the best line up!

While we don't need it, I would LOVE to see the park get a custom Intamin 12 looper. THAT would give us the best collection on the planet :drool5:

HAHAHAHAHA! That would be cool too!

Just a thought:

Maybe they will expand the park with a path going from the gates between the exits of Congo Rapids and Nitro, under Nitro's lift, behind the Stunt Arena, and over past Nitro, onto the unused land that was I think in the Original Plans.

I highly doubt that this would happen, but I think it would be nice, because I hate that dead end by the Nitro and Congo Rapids Exit.

That'd make it nearly PERFECT! A sitdown looper with a floor and then get a 4D later on, the Gadv collection will have the most amazing coaster collection.

I don't think we'll get a coaster next year; because, honestly, where would we put it? It would be pointless to remove a coaster to put a new one there, and besides, there aren't any coasters that are screaming "Replace me!" I mean, Rolling Thunder is old but it would make more sense to retrack it than remove it; Runaway Mine Train is a classic and that won't be going anywhere for a long time (unless it's replaced with another mine train coaster), and those are really the only two coasters we have that it could be reasonably expected that they'd be replaced.

I hope for the 40th anniversary the park adds a GCI woodie in the back of Old Country to anchor the newly reopened section. However, it doesn't seem like the new management is into woodies.

I hope next year we get a drop tower. That's the only major thrill ride that we really lack; and now that Magic Mountain has one, we're the only major Six Flags park that doesn't have one.

Yeah considering how even most of the smaller SF parks have drop towers, we need to get one too. I think every park in the chain except Discovery Kingdom, Mexico and Great Adventure has some kind of drop tower.

New England, Great Escape, La Ronde, Over Texas and Fiesta Texas have S&S
St. Louis, America, Great America, Over Georgia have Intamin.

Fahrenheit is still a vibrating piece of trash to me. I've heard bad things about Colossus too. I don't see the point if there's going to be 4 in lines and just a loop and cobra roll. I need Loop, Norwegian loop, some dive loops. Then we'll be talking.

Seriously I hope there are no plans for a coaster in 2014!!! Yes I said it no coaster for the 40th anniversary. 2013 I want an intamin 420-430 ft. drop tower on Ka and the addition of a new show. 2014 our 40th anniversary I want a major dark ride....I'm talking darkastle-eque! We deserve it! I think these additions are totally feasible. Then 2015 we would definitly need a coaster cause it will be 4 years since GL. Definitly should be an intamin of some kind either: giga, Maverick style or aquatrax....with the sole exception being if B&M finally has a 4D than it should be a B&M 4D.

I hope that we see another "War On Lines"!!! I hope to see a Shoot-The-Chutes where the 4D Building is, an Intamin Gyro Drop where Freefall once stood and/or an S&S Combo Drop in the center of the Big Tents, a classic Wave Swinger in The Old Country, a Musik Express in The Old Country, and a HUSS Giant Frisbee in the Tee-Pee's old spot.

I know I'm going out on a limb here... But I would really like to see both a GCI (with a fly through station!) between The Northern Star Arena and The Saw Mill Log Flume, called Jersey Devil! Not only that, but an Intamin LSM Launch using Batman & Robin: The Chiller's old station, called Mr. Freeze (in the near future!)

And a Racing Mats Slide in Hurricane Harbor!
