I must admit that I didn't expect the curse of S&S to strike quite this early...
Yes, I think this is what was at the back of my mind too.Although short, I love the string of elements. It'll certainly be a thrilling ride - exciting enough to warrant a trip there next year.
What bothers me about the ride is the Full-Throttle-esque brake run. The park tore down a theater and is somehow using ALL of the space for this ride? Please...c'mon, Six Flags. They're already spending how many million on this? They might as well spend an extra million or two to drop that dive loop next to the station, add a swooping turn, and a proper brake run, transfer track, and storage shed. Whether this ride underwent major budget cuts or was just lazily designed, the execution of the ending is not good.
Best part is that the ride is using little to none of the actual space the theater took up.The park tore down a theater and is somehow using ALL of the space for this ride?
Nope, back to Gurnee with you. Off you pop.Damn. I really didn't want to have to go back to Gam so soon
No offense Cam, just thought I was done with it after the past 12 months.
The grass is always greener on the other side.
Ah, the amazing Six Flags Worlds of Adventure. I heard it became the biggest park in the world around the turn of the millennium. Given how well the theme park industry has fared since then, the park surely must be worth a visit today.The one in Ohio is a bit of a secret as well. Not listed on any map and the website is down. I can assure you it's there tho.
I heard another park was seeing signs around the turn of the millennium. SFWoA must've been overshadowed after that. Maybe that's why it's a bit of a secret!Ah, the amazing Six Flags Worlds of Adventure. I heard it became the biggest park in the world around the turn of the millennium.

Ah right. Thanks @Antinos and everyone else! Out of interest, for those who have been to both, are Six Flags parks anything like Thorpe Park?Since it's really the only amusement park that serves the entirety of Chicagoland and the surrounding region, it's chronically packed beyond all belief. I've been thrice and it has been packed every time, including weekdays. The operations are dire and the staff are clueless and, in some cases, rude. It's a shame since they've been finally getting some solid investments recently.
