Why not just make a gotham city territory? It could be relatively small like yukon.

They actually tried that already... That's where "Batman" is located and the reason that the Lobster became the "East River Crawler".

And that's also the reason Whirligig was briefly known as Gotham City Swinger.

Not another spinning coaster. Why can't they do a cooler enclosed coaster. I would even settle for Rolling Thunder coming back as an enclosed ride, and make it like Disaster Transport. Hey Santa Clara, want to trade new rollercoasters?

Yea, It doesn't spin as far as I know. Also, I didn't know that east river crawler was called that b4.

^Yep! It did use to be called Lobster. For Whirligig, I never knew it was called that though. This coaster won't even be opening until May 17th I believe. They said it was opening opening day, but they an unexpected amount of snow and they aren't that far in construction progress. It may open before May 17th, but it will surprise me if it does open April 26th (opening day).
Whatta day! Whatta place!

They will prolly just transform that whole area of the park into a superhero section now. Correct me if im wrong, but isnt SFGAm getting a new rollercoaster in 09 called Superman, Ride of Steel? All they would have to do basically is tear down some of the kiddie and flat rides. Unless, of course, the rollercoaster gets put where Deja Vu and Splashwater falls used to be. Or where Space Shuttle America used to be.

On the worst website in the world to look up information: Wikipedia. :? In fact, I just looked on there today, and the info about the coaster is no longer on there. Sorry for my mistake. :oops:

It's ok. Just remember that 50% of wikipedia isn't true.

^It's has been going around many coaster sites as a rumor. Do you know if they will have a special day for season pass holders to ride TDK? I know I saw a pic on SFGAm World that said something about that but I'm not completely sure.

My neighbors got some pass to ride TDK at a special time in May for getting a pass in October.

Has anyone been on TDK yet? If so what is it like? The webite (sixflags.com) alludes to the fact that there are holograms in the dark or I guess what they call "hallucinations" which does sound like it may be pretty cool.

It lacks many of the effects they talk about. Don't waste your time on it unless it has a half hour wait or less which I've never seen.
