Demon Footers...

Post by ILuvTheDemon » Mon Jul 20, 2009 3:07 pm

When you are in line for the Demon, and you get around to the other side of the tunnel, there's a grassy area, and in that area is a large concrete footer that I always wondered about, I always thought that there was a statue or something there, but I recently saw a picture on The Demon's myspace page of the original sign, which I've seen a million times already, but I noticed something in the background which might have been attached to the mysterious footer: http://viewmorepics.myspace.com/index.c ... eID=801648

It looks to me like a post for Eagle's Flight/Delta Flyer or Southern Cross, any idea if this is what belonged on the footer or not, and if it was, what was it?

The third post of this topic should answer you.

Yup you were right, it is a footer from Southern Cross.
Maybe a GREAT day is just what you need this year.

Aha! I knew it! But the thing that made me think other wise was that it was still there, I would've thought that Marriott would have taken the whole thing- footer and post out though. I also thought that it could've been some sort of theming element that six flags took out until I saw the picture.

Thanks!
