Six Flags Theme Parks
Park News - (8/9/16) Six Flags is adding even more VR Coaster experiences to their parks with the announcement of a "Rage of the Gargoyles" experience coming to The Demon at Six Flags Great America and to Kong at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. Look for this new experience to open sometime in September to go with Fright Fest at Discovery Kingdom, but it will kick off on August 13th at SFGAm.
Six More coasters at other Six Flags parks will also launch the same VR Coaster experience, though I haven't been able to uncover the entire list yet. So far I've also found that Skull Mountain at SFGAdv and it is expected to replace all of "The New Revolution" experiences that have already opened at other Six Flags parks which would be SFOG on Dare Devil Dive Coaster, SFMM on Revolution at La Ronde on Goliath, SFOT on Shockwave.
(5/13/16) The Global News reports on La Ronde launching their VR Coaster experience on Goliath. The coaster is playing it's own custom version of The New Revolution VR experience that has opened as several other Six Flags parks this season. Of course, the news broadcast issues one major error, claiming that this is the first virtual reality coaster experience in Canada, which is wrong as Canada's Wonderland would take that honor when they opened a VR experience on the park's Thunder Run coaster last fall as a test run for running it for the entire 2016 season.
2016 - Avenue Adventure, Phoenix, Gravitor and Vampire Backwards - (12/2/15) Six Flags has released a new version of their "New for 2016 at Six Flags" video that goes over what each park in the chain is adding next year. A reader noticed if you jump ahead to the La Ronde segment that starts at the 3:20 mark, they've changed the footage for Gravitor to show footage of a Chance Falling Star ride, in particular this is footage of the Rush Street Flyer from Six Flags St. Louis. I'm told that the Rush Street Flyer is being removed from SFSL to make room for the park's new Fireball ride in 2016.
(9/7/15) One item I forgot to mention for the 2016 addition to La Ronde on the way is that the parks Vampire coaster (B&M Inverted Batman clone) will turn the trains around for the season and run it backwards next year. The limited runs of Batman: Backwards at the various Six Flags parks over the past couple years has been quite a hit with guests as it takes the already intense ride experience up to a new level where you can see the twists and turns coming, so this should be a nice addition to the park for 2016.
(9/3/15) The park is adding Avenue Adventure in 2016, an area with two new flat rides called Gravitor and Phoenix.
2017 - Titan - (9/3/16) A quick update, I have confirmed with Six Flags that Titan is actually a Zamperla Giant Discovery, and not a Huss Giant Frisbee.
(9/1/16) The details about Titan have been revealed as a new Huss Giant Frisbee style attraction. Standing 15-stories tall you'll spin and swing back and forth at speeds up to 70mph and love every minute of it.
(8/31/16) The Screamscape spy network has provided us with a little information about whatis coming to La Ronde in 2017 ahead of tomorrow’s big announcement. It isn’t much to go on, but we do have a name:
Given that the name implies something large, and so far the company has only used that name once on a hypercoaster at Six Flags over Texas, this just might end up being something interesting. Since La Ronde already has a hypercoaster under the name Goliath, it won’t be another one of those, but I’m curious what this one could be as the name almost implies something large or tall.
