Six Flags America's New Coaster!Six Flags America: Six Flags America is getting Six Flags Astro World's Ultra Twister, one of its best. Six Flags is giving no word on its arrival.
From Eli KatzmanSix Flags America is probably getting Ultra Twister, a coaster that is currently at six flags astro world. Because six flags a.w. is going out of business, some of its coasters are going to other six flags theme parks. Six Flags has given no word what so ever on Ultra Twister's arrival. For all I know, it could get its name changed! It is supposed to go somewhere near Superman: Ride of Steel. If you rode it in the 2007 season; on the long stretch between the 1st helix and the 3rd hill, while you are going about 30-40 mph, if you glanced to your right, you would see some roller coaster parts. (They were in between the 2nd hill's start and finish.) Also, on the lift hill(better view from right side), if you turned your head almost 180 degrees to the right, you could see more roller coaster parts and a small stretch of land where it will probably go. I live about 30 minutes away from the park, and I can't wait to ride it!

From Eli KatzmanThis coaster moving to SFA is about a 80% chance of happening, but we difinately know that it's in storage there.

From steve leeJust a correction; Six Flags Astroworld closed forever in 2005.

But they need to dust this thing off and get it in a park. I've always been intrigued by that design, but I've never been in a park that had one.
From Dan ForgetIt's not being built. It was supposedly damaged and going to be scrapped.

From Eli KatzmanThat's just what I heard; go to coastergallery.com, and you'll find info. I may be wrong, but thanks for commenting!

From Ryan BAlthough it is at SFA now, I have also read at least a year ago that it was damaged beyond reasonable repair costs and it not happening. Glad I got on it at Astroworld.

From Eli KatzmanJust for whoever cares, it's still in storage there, and no sign of it being built.
