News & Rumors

SIX FLAGS GREAT AMERICA

icon_STOPPark News - (1/25/17) An interesting new rumor was leaked to Screamscape this week regarding the future of the park's V2: Vertical Velocity coaster. While this is simply a rumor about a possible future plan for the park, please keep in mind that plans are always subject to change and that nothing is locked in at this point in time.
    With that said, Screamscape has been told that there is a chance that Vertical Velocity could possibly be closed by the later half of 2017 to be removed and sent to another smaller Six Flags theme park in order to make room for whatever the park has in store for 2018. According to our source, there was actually a period of time that V2 was considered for removal in order to build Joker for 2017, but the location of those plans changed and allowed the coaster to stay in place... for now.  So if you are a fan of Vertical Velocity, then I suggest you get all the rides you can when the park opens for the season, just in case.

 

2017 - The Joker -

(10/14/16) A reader sent in two pictures from Six Flags Great America showing off the land prep work that has begin for The Joker. They've begun removing the old Ragin' Cajun queue lines and the East River Crawler is now almost entirely removed.
    (9/1/16) It's official, as rumored The Joker (an S&S FreeFly 4D0) coaster is coming to Six Flags Great America. Check out the video below.

    (9/1/16) I’m told that Six Flags will be installing three Joker clones (S&S Freefly 4D coasters) in the chain this season, with the new coasters going to Six Flags Great America, Six Flags New England and Six Flags over Texas.
    (8/9/16) I was suspecting this myself as well, but according to the latest rumor the soon to be vacated spot from Jester's Wild Ride, East River Crawler and the old Ragin Cajun spot will be used to add an S&S 4D FreeFly coaster. No word on if they will give it a Joker or Batman theme, or try something unique.
