What do you all think about these additions? What are you most excited for? What is your nearest Six Flags park adding?

It is an off year for Six Flags and many parks in general. Personally after hearing these I wondered if this can be taken as an indicator as to the economy not doing so hot. As Six Flags is probably projecting a downturn so they are being spare in their new investments.

Also as my Six Flags is getting a Ring Of Fire and removing the Rush Street Flyer I'm. It surprised and I'm not excited. I'm just hoping that 2017 is a better year.

It is a bit more disappointing that SFStL is the only park that is getting a Super Loop that is not getting another attraction to go with it.

^ You are correct. Sorry for the oversight. I wonder if Great Escape will ever really get a "good" addition?

I don't think the Super Loop is a bad addition to a park, but not if they're going to remove another ride for it. It's also a bit silly that Six Flags is using the same name for three of the four super loops.

As for the other parks, I'm really excited for the Revolution renovation and the return of Superman at Six Flags New England. I also really like what's happening Six Flags Over Georgia.

I doubt it for the time being. They are a small market park. I really doubt if their attendance is over the 750K mark - not the kind of numbers where you see large additions every 5 years.
