New articles released every Monday!
Just one month from today, Six Flags Over Texas will be announcing what's coming for 2019 season. Currently, no teasers have been released by the park to provide hints on what the new addition(s) could be. However, that doesn't mean that the rumor mill isn't turning with possibilities on what could be coming in 2019 and beyond. Below we'll take a look at what we could see come to the park next season. Please note that this article is full of rumors and predictions only, as nothing has been confirmed by the park.
Skyline Attractions SkyWarp:
When first announced at the 2016 IAAPA trade show, the Skyline Attrations SkyWarp was an instant hit with potential buyers and theme park enthusiasts alike. These unique, thrilling rides are not only aesthetically pleasing, but are compact and cost efficient as well. The SkyWarp comes in three models; the traditional figure-8 shaped layout, the 22 foot tall, low to the ground SkyWarp Horizon, and the 100 foot tall, high thrill SkyWarp Eclipse. Should Six Flags Over Texas get one of these rides for the 2019 season, we expect them to get either the traditional SkyWarp or SkyWarp Eclipse model. The ride could potentially be themed to Wonder Woman with a beautiful yellow/gold track and sleek white supports. The trains could sport a red, white, and blue color scheme and could have the Wonder Woman emblem mounted to the front. Skyline Attractions also offers the rides with an LED light package, something that the new section of Gotham City is known for. As for the location, we could easily see the ride going in the empty space between Harley Quinn Spinsanity, Batman: The Ride, and Catwoman Whip. Shown below are the 2 models of the SkyWarp. First is the traditional SkyWarp, and below that is the SkyWarp Eclipse. We left out the SkyWarp Horizon as we do not see this model being installed at the park.
Relocation Of The Former Harley Quinn Spinsanity:
For those of you that are new to Six Flags Over Texas or Over Texas Thrills, the original Harley Quinn Spinsanity was a HUSS Trokia that operated from 2006-2018. The ride was permenantly closed on January 7th of this year and is currently being replaced with a new restaurant. Despite being removed, the rides parts are currently being stored in the "boneyard" underneath Titan. During this year's ACE Winterfest event, it was confirmed that the park is looking to relocate the ride in the near future. A possible location is back to the Gotham City section of the park, but this time, near Catwoman Whip/Harley Quinn Spinsanity and the rumored location of the 2019 SkyWarp. This would be a much welcomed addition for families as it was one of only two rides in Gotham City with a height requirement of less than 48".
Year-Round Haunted House:
Take this one with a grain of salt, but I've heard quite a few people discuss the possibility of a year round haunted house coming to the Gotham City section of the park. The rumored location is inside of the former strip mall that Six Flags recently aquired to build The Joker and Harley Quinn Spinsanity. While most of the building has been torn down, one part still remains and is currently having construction done on the inside. We are pretty certain that this building will be used for Fright Fest, but the chances of it being a year round haunted house just don't seem great to me. The rumor does have a bit of traction though, so I guess we'll have to wait and see.
