Yes they are repainting the track green, and the supports to yellow - looks great so far.

It will reopen with the new Justice League dark ride - no date has been set but I assume they want to get it open in time before schools go back late August.

There was an incident at Six Flags New York yesterday where a guest fell from a cable car ride into the crowd, who miraculously caught them!

So it's the Six Flags 2018 new attractions announcement day on Thursday!

We already know that Fiesta Texas will be getting Wonder Woman: Golden Lasso Coaster which is very exciting although I'm probably most excited about Six Flags Over Georgia which looks to be recieving an RMC hybrid in 2018!

Do people think that they will clone the S&S free spins for yet another year in 2018?

Thanks to Nemesis Rider for the signature!

We also know SFNE is getting a Zamperla Giant Discovery and SFA is looking at a VR addition. So that's four Six Flags parks we know are getting. So I recon the announcement will be a mix of what we've seen in previous years.

The official attraction descriptions:

Coming to Six Flags Fiesta Texas— the world’s first single rail coaster and first-ever WONDER WOMAN-themed roller coaster— WONDER WOMAN Golden Lasso Coaster. With a 90-degree drop, this technological marvel features a first-of-its-kind single I-beam rail with riders seated single file. The unique, innovative design gives riders an open-air, unobstructed view as they fly along the track at 50 miles-per-hour. WONDER WOMAN Golden Lasso Coaster will thrill riders with two airtime hills, a 180-degree stall, overbanked turns and an awe-inspiring zero-g roll.

At Six Flags Magic Mountain, “The Thrill Capital of the Planet,” prepare for CraZanity— the world’s tallest pendulum ride. At a record-breaking 17 stories in the air, this impressive giant disc will reach speeds of up to 75-miles-per-hour as it whips back and forth, higher and higher. As the pendulum swings from side to side, while rotating counterclockwise, guests will experience a feeling of weightlessness at 172 feet in the air. CraZanity will be the centerpiece of a newly-themed Boardwalk. The Los Angeles-based theme park recently announced it is entering the destination travel market by launching a 365-day operating calendar beginning January 1, 2018.

Coming to Six Flags Great Adventure, the first-of-its-kind in North America—and the first ride in the world themed after DC Super Hero CYBORG. Inspired by the movement of a gyroscope, CYBORG Cyber Spin features a unique futuristic triple box design that allows the gondola to spin around three separate axes while rotating forward, backwards and sideways up to 70 feet in the air. The floorless seats leave riders’ feet dangling as they whirl through the air.

Six Flags Over Georgia, The Thrill Capital of the South, is debuting an exciting new hybrid roller coaster—Twisted Cyclone. The technology—first introduced by Six Flags, combines the best of both worlds—a classic wooden structure with a modern, steel track for multiple inversions and a smoother, more thrilling ride experience. The all-new Twisted Cyclone features a steep 75-degree initial drop into a jaw-dropping reverse cobra roll, three upside down inversions and 10 airtime moments along 2,400 feet of twisted track.

The Thrill Capital of New England, Six Flags New England, is taking thrills to a whole new level with HARLEY QUINN Spinsanity. This extreme pendulum ride whirls guests back and forth, higher and higher at up to 70 miles-per-hour for a dizzying ride experience as bizarre and unpredictable as HARLEY QUINN herself. Guests will be enthralled by a feeling of weightlessness at 147 feet in the air, before plunging downward from 15 stories.

Six Flags Mexico is launching its first ever 4D Free Fly Coaster in 2018. This uniquely designed roller coaster will feature theming based on DC’s iconic Super Hero—WONDER WOMAN. On the new WONDER WOMAN Coaster, riders are lifted straight up a 12-story, 90-degree hill and then immediately flipped head-over-heels, backwards and forwards multiple times as they speed along the undulating vertically stacked track. The technologically advanced Free Fly design allows cars to be extended outward from the track as riders sit suspended in mid-air. Two beyond 90-degree raven drops give the sensation of heart-pounding free-falls from high above the ground.

Six Flags America, near Washington D.C., will debut Wahoo River—an all-new action-packed river adventure—in its Hurricane Harbor water park. Bigger, Better and Wetter, Wahoo River will be 33% wider and over 40% longer than Castaway Creek. The new attraction will include significant upgrades such as a zero depth entry that will make it convenient for guests of all ages to dip into the cool water with inflatable tubes. Friends and family members will have a blast as they float along the river, enjoying dozens of interactive features including wall sprayers, huge waterfalls, archways, tippy water cones and a new wave generator.

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, The Thrill Capital of Northern California, will debut the thrilling, new HARLEY QUINN Crazy Coaster, the world’s first-of-its-kind inverted looping coaster featuring multiple inversions along a vertical, figure eight track. Riders will experience head-to-head flybys at combined speeds of 70 miles-per-hour as the two dueling trains race toward each other, culminating with a “High Five” moment giving the illusion that riders can actually reach out and “High Five” as they careen by.

Towering at a staggering 100 feet in the air, the world’s largest loop coaster is headed to Six Flags Great America—The Thrill Capital of The Midwest, in 2018. This world-record breaking attraction will take riders forward and backward on a gigantic loop before suspending them completely upside down for plenty of wicked hang-time. Thrill seekers will travel in unique “face-off” seating and go through a series of 360-degree revolutions before reeling downward in the opposite direction.

At Six Flags St. Louis, The Coaster Capital of Missouri, a massive new water attraction is headed to its Hurricane Harbor waterpark in 2018—Typhoon Twister. This hybrid, zero-gravity slide complex packs two extreme thrills into one incredible attraction. Typhoon Twister features four-person rafts that careen wildly into a 125-foot whirlpool bowl and spins riders around 360-degrees before sending them plummeting down an enclosed five-story drop. Riders will then be propelled up a 45-foot, zero-gravity wave wall to experience moments of weightlessness before shooting into the splash pool below.

Six Flags Over Texas, The Thrill Capital of Texas, is ramping up for the next generation in thrill rides and the first-of-its-kind in North America—HARLEY QUINN Spinsanity. Staying true to its namesake—this innovative attraction promises to deliver a new level of thrills with unpredictable, gravity-defying flips, twist and turns. Seated 24 across with over-the-shoulder harnesses, riders will experience a thrilling combination of negative and positive gravitational forces as they rotate forward, backwards and sideways up to 70 feet in the air.
Complete Pandemonium is headed to The Great Escape and Splashwater Kingdom. On this classic spinning attraction, riders will catch maximum air and experience 360-degrees of adrenaline-packed excitement. Pandemonium will seat 24 rides in a “face out” position as it lifts, spins and tilts at all angles. The ride quickly accelerates faster and faster, while whirling guests through seemingly endless rotations. An electrifying light package will dazzle onlookers and riders alike.

La Ronde, in Montreal, is celebrating all things family with Carnaval en Folie—a new carnival-themed family zone, complete with three, fun new rides sure to delight the young and young at heart. Guests will be fully immersed in an atmosphere inspired by fairs and carnivals of yesteryear featuring rich, vibrant colors and festive music and lighting. Torsade is a spinning tilt-a-whirl where parents can ride with their children; Petit Roue is a fun-size Ferris wheel that offers the best view of the Carnaval; and Tourbillon is the perfect ride for thrill seekers in training.

Waterworld Concord, the newest member of the Six Flags family of parks, is excited to debut its biggest new attraction in over a decade with the introduction of Splashwater Island, an enormous new interactive water play area designed for the entire family. Splashwater Island features almost 8,000 square feet of thrilling water activities including nine open and enclosed slides, dozens of geysers, jets, and sprays along with a super-sized water bucket that sits atop the huge play area dumping water every few minutes on guests standing below. Additional deck space with new lounging chairs and private cabanas are also part of the upgrades.

This fall, Six Flags delivers the biggest Halloween event on the planet—Fright Fest®. It’s Thrills by Day! Fright by Night! Six Flags parks have never been scarier with more ghouls, more haunted mazes and more scares than ever. Every park has terrifying new zombies roaming the midways and creepier frights around every corner. Back by popular demand is Suicide Squad: The Six Flags Fright Fest Experience at Magic Mountain. This featured section at Six Flags Magic Mountain took park-goers by storm in 2016. The park’s DC UNIVERSE section will once again be completely transformed as the “Worst Heroes Ever” from the film Suicide Squad roam the streets. State-of-the-art digital imagery and fiery special effects add to the chilling atmosphere.

Later this year, Six Flags New England joins 10 Six Flags properties to ring in the holidays with Holiday in the Park®—a time-honored, feel good Six Flags tradition featuring a winter wonderland of all the beloved sights and sounds of the season, yummy holiday treats along with guest favorite rides and attractions, set against the backdrop of millions of twinkling lights.

Six Flags have today announced all of their 2019 additions. The two major coasters coming to Great America and Magic Mountain have been mentioned in their respective topics, but here’s a summary of all the upcoming attractions:

  • West Coast Racers, the world’s first racing launch coaster — opening at Six Flags Magic Mountain, the Thrill Capital of the World. Designed in partnership with the world famous West Coast Customs, this one-of-a-kind racing coaster will feature two side-by- side tracks with four individual high-speed launches. The race covers two complete laps, multiple airtime hills, extreme high-banked turns and exhilarating over/under near misses. A highlight of the ride is an immersive real time “pit stop” exclusively designed and produced by West Coast Customs. West Coast Racers will be the park’s 20th roller coaster, which is more than any other theme park on the planet.
  • Six Flags Great Adventure, the World’s Ultimate Thrill Park, will premiere one of the world’s tallest pendulum rides, Wonder Woman Lasso of Truth. Measuring in at a staggering 17 stories tall, this jaw-dropping, spinning disk will reach speeds up to 75 miles per hour as it spins and swings back and forth to breathtaking heights. The massive pendulum propels 40 riders in counterclockwise circles with feet dangling from floorless seats as they whirl through the air.
  • Six Flags Great America, the Thrill Capital of the Midwest, will debut a revolutionary, triple record-breaking, new roller coaster for the 2019 season. Maxx Force will be the fastest launch coaster in North America, accelerating to 78 mph in less than two seconds. Maxx Force will feature the fastest inversion in the world with a Zero-G Roll more than 60 miles-per-hour and the highest double inversion of any roller coaster in the world at 175-feet above the ground. It will also feature one-of-a-kind custom coaster trains modeled after Formula 1 racing cars.
  • Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, the Thrill Capital of Northern California, is adding to its thrill arsenal with the park’s most innovative new coaster to date — Batman: The Ride — themed after one of the world’s most iconic DC Super Heroes. Riders on this 4D wing coaster will experience a sensory overload as they flip head-over-heels at least six times along a weightless, tumbling journey with unexpected drops and vertical free-falls.
  • Darien Lake, a new Six Flags Theme Park, and the Coaster Capital of New York, will debut the tallest attraction in the entire state — the all-new Six Flags SkyScreamer. This giant, 242-foot tall swing ride will reign as the region’s new, iconic symbol, beckoning guests from near and far. Six Flags SkyScreamer swings riders round and round at 35 miles per hour, offering breathtaking views of the countryside below. Additionally, Darien Lake will be rebranded Six Flags Darien Lake when it opens next spring.
  • Six Flags America, DC’s Thrill Capital, will launch FIREBIRD, the only floorless roller coaster in Maryland. This all-new coaster experience will take thrill-seekers through incredible twists, drops and inversions, all while seated in new, state-of-the-art floorless trains. FIREBIRD’s exhilarating flight path takes off with an intense, nine-story drop, and features two thrilling inversions, high-banked curves with high-speed carousel and corkscrew rolls and an incredible figure-eight finale.
  • Six Flags Fiesta Texas, the Thrill Capital of South Texas, will debut the tallest and fastest spinning pendulum ride in the world. Named after the world’s most iconic Super Villain, The Joker Wild Card delivers a unique brand of chaotic, dizzying fun for extreme thrill- seekers. Towering a record-breaking 17-stories tall, this impressive giant disk will reach speeds up to 80 miles per hour as it whips back and forth, and higher and higher, to give riders a spectacular view of the world below them. The Joker Wild Card will become the centerpiece of a newly themed DC Universe area. The park is also announcing year-round operation, adding winter weekends and holidays to its regular operating season.
  • Six Flags Mexico, the Thrill Capital of Mexico and Latin America is announcing fun for the entire family with the arrival of DC SUPER FRIENDS and Bugs Bunny Boomtown. These colorful, imaginative new sections will feature 14 rides and attractions, including six brand-new themed attractions. These kid-friendly zones are destined to become the region’s most popular family destination spot and the perfect launching pad for thrill- seekers-in-training.
  • Six Flags Hurricane Harbor Oaxtepec, Latin America’s most thrilling waterpark, will introduce a visually stunning and intense racing slide, King Cobra. The slide’s unique configuration enables two tubes to race through a circular path with dynamic twists, turns and surprises, snaking through both enclosed and open sections of the slide. Riders will race until the heart-pounding finish, when they appear to disappear inside the massive mouth of the cobra.
  • Six Flags Over Texas, the Thrill Capital of Texas, will welcome the world’s largest loop coaster — Lone Star Revolution. Towering at 100 feet in the air, this exhilarating, record- breaking new coaster takes riders forward and backward on a gigantic loop before suspending them upside down for extended adrenaline-pumping hang-time. Thrill-seekers will travel in unique “face-off” seating positions and swing through a long series of 360- degree revolutions before reeling downward in the opposite direction. Lone Star Revolution is a Texas-sized loop coaster with Texas-sized thrills.
  • Six Flags New England, the Thrill Capital of New England, will debut the hi-tech Cyborg attraction, inspired by the DC Super Hero. The Cyborg attraction is an extreme new dark ride experience. Cyborg invites guests to S.T.A.R. Labs to witness a new technological device when the sentient cybernetic system called THE GRID hacks into the mainframe and takes control of the entire lab. Riders find themselves caught up in the battle, spinning and whirling mercilessly through the air, while Cyborg wrestles to regain control of the enormous machine. This exciting, new attraction offers 360 degrees of immersive fun.
  • Frontier City, Oklahoma’s favorite theme park, will introduce an exciting, interactive new kids’ area that will be home to adorable new characters. The all-new Timber Town will feature four new, innovative attractions designed especially for the young thrill-seekers, plus enchanting new theming and fresh, re-imagined updates of the original children’s rides. Lovable characters like Bucky the Beaver, Hootie the Owl and Bubba the Bear will be on hand for lots of pictures with young guests.
  • Six Flags Over Georgia, the Thrill Capital of the South, will launch an exciting, new high-flying attraction, Pandemonium, the tallest swinging pendulum ride in the Southeast. Swirling through the clouds at an astonishing 15 stories, this impressive giant disk will reach speeds up to 70 miles per hour, as it whips back and forth, higher and higher, giving guests an exhilarating ride experience as they soar high above the Atlanta city skyline. Pandemonium will be the centerpiece of the park’s new ScreamPunk themed area, featuring revamped food locations and shopping experiences. ScreamPunk is a special Six Flags twist on the popular Steampunk subgenre.
  • La Ronde, Quebec’s leading destination for thrills and family entertainment, will introduce Chaos, a new giant loop roller coaster. Chaos offers a pure adrenaline rush as riders go forward, backward and upside down for unprecedented hang-time. This exhilarating, seven-story loop sends riders through a series of multiple, adrenaline-charged revolutions, higher and higher before changing directions for even more chaotic thrills.
  • Six Flags St. Louis, The Coaster Capital of Missouri, will take guests on an adrenaline-charged flight on the new SUPERGIRL attraction as they soar nearly seven stories high in open-air vehicles. Drawing on DC Super Hero Supergirl’s powers of stamina and strength, thrill-seekers spin and tilt while suspended from the massive, whirling wheel. The ride is raised into the air by a giant arm as riders launch into a high-speed spin, with feet dangling as they spin round and round...higher and higher.
