Don't see the point of relocating a 20 year old ride like Iron Wolf especialy as it a B&M stand up, a ride model that is out of date and dead in the water. I would think it would cost more to take it down, install footers in its new loacaton and errect it than they would get back. I guess thats just typical of Six Flags.
Seems to be a Six Flags habit to do this. I rode Iron Wolf in 2006 and it is rough as hell! But it's a fairly compact layout, on flat ground so shouldn't be too difficult / costly to relocate.[/quote]
Six Flags used to run what was called the Ride Rotation Program, where they'd basically do a LOT of relocating old coasters to different parks and advertising them as "new". Deja Vu at Magic Mountain is also becoming Goliath at New England, so it appears this program is back in full force, which is a shame. Deja Vu is a piece of crap though.
Tallest fastest drop tower in the world, 85mph! Though isn't the Freefall coaster in Australia with the drop tower on the side the exact same height?
I think the coaster is but Superman is built over the edge of the parks mountain so from the top of the drop to actual ground level it's higher.[/quote]
Ahh yes you're exactly right there, when standing at Goliath's entrance you can see how much further down the tower goes than the track!
