I know this has been brought up before, but just to put it on the new site. From now until the 2017 season (50th Anniversary) what do you think six flags will change and what do you want to see change? Fun!

Hopefully SFOG will finally get a freaking FERRIS WHEEL!!!

Other than that...
- Connect Gotham City to Cotton States via ripping up some parking lot
- Lose Ninja
- Retrack Cyclone
- Lose axis arena, add a flat ride in lieu
- maybe ad a launch coaster of some sort...??

We won't lose Ninja... it is Melinda's favorite ride. We've wanted that connection around the back of the park for quite some time, but it won't happen without a LOT of back of the house stuff being moved, including rerouting pipelines. We actually have a Ferris Wheel, but it is a tiny one for children. The most likely thing to happen soon would be to retrack Georgia Cyclone, probably like they just did for Texas Giant.

We had a launched coaster, but lost it in favor of Superman.

I don't ever see connecting Gotham City to Cotton States. Just not possible, there is no space for walk ways even if you did rip up part of the parking lot. Gotham to Lickskillet maybe, but will require some moving of a lot of stuff.

I don't see losing Axis Arena, it is used throughout the year for events, etc.

I can see Axis being lost, if another facility was built somewhere else. The park is running out of room to build without either tearing up parts of the parking lot (the current solution) or tearing down back of the house buildings and constructing new ones. (My preferred solution, but not very likely.) I think, eventually, we'll have a Gotham/Lickskillet connection, but a LOT of stuff will either be moved or surrounded.

I dunno squid... for a connection like that, it would mean a lot of foot traffic would be lost between Lickskillet/French/USA sections.

I can also see them slowly moving the back lot areas further back because of the age of some of the buildings and the ease of replacing them (since most are basically open frame warehouse type buildings).

We won't lose Axis anytime soon because it is still useful. It gets used for a lot of cheerleading competitions, ROTC competitions and events of that nature. Alot of the problem with the Cyclone is not the track itself. It is the cars. Don't know how to fix that though.

Sorry, I meant connect Gotham to the Lickskillet area not Cotton states.

I know we had a launch (Viper), but I meant a new launch, i.e. S&S, Premier, Intamin. It'd balance out the coaster offerings here. I wouldn't count on Cyclone getting the Texas Giant rehab, it'll probably just get some fresh wood. When I meant a ferris wheel, I meant an actual ferris wheel, one to go along the sizes of almost (if not) every other SF park.

Cyclone needs an update like texas giant got and would be an awesome ride afterwards. Ferris Wheels are boring. Pretty, but boring.

Snake. It may be boring to you but our park has a need for more family rides. It had and abundance of coasters and an abundance of kiddie rides. Not all rides have to be thrill rides as the thrill rides don't attract the crowd you think it does. and plus they always lose their lust after a couple of years. Look at Scorcher...
