Well I guess this person is vouching for the plethora of Christians who are in the Pentecostal, Apostalic or Holiness denominations who definitely frequent the park. The long dresses, long hair, no makeup, or long pants for men are always in the park as they believe in "covering the flesh or their bodies" as the body as sacred and the flesh is only to be seen by the married spouse. I grew up in that denomination so I know where they are coming from and they don't want to subject themselves or their children to such. To say the park will shut down is a bit of a stretch tho. Lol

This lady is on another level with it. You're all going to hell for lusting after each other in bathing suits...lol


Who lusts over someone in a bathing suit? Maybe I'm just too desensitized but I've never gone into a water park and thought "oh yeah baby, show me some more of that exposed ankle." :lol:

Who lusts over someone in a bathing suit?

The kind that go to waterparks and enjoy looking at the other people.

I have seen a group of guys lust over a waitress, I have also seen guys and gals walking about malls oogling full clothed guys.

Fair enough. But clothes aren't going to stop you from lusting over someone/having "naughty" thoughts. The only thing bathing suits do is leave slightly less to the imagination.

AUSTELL, Ga. — August 31, 2017 — Six Flags Over Georgia—the Thrill Capital of the South—today announced the all-new Twisted Cyclone hybrid roller coaster will arrive in 2018. Twisted Cyclone will offer guests the best of both worlds—a classic wooden structure combined with a modern, steel track for multiple inversions and a smoother, more thrilling riding experience.

“Six Flags was the first in the industry to introduce this hybrid technology and Twisted Cyclone is a shining example of Six Flags innovation at its very best. Year after year, our park keeps delivering unique thrills for all ages and this state-of-the-art hybrid coaster is an absolute game- changer,” said Park President Dale Kaetzel. “Our guests are going to be blown away by the unbelievable features of this coaster.”

Twisted Cyclone highlights include:
- An insanely steep 75-degree initial drop from nearly 100 feet into a jaw-dropping reverse cobra roll sending riders perpendicular to the ground;
- Three hair-raising upside down inversions and 10 airtime moments along 2,400 feet of track at speeds of 50 miles per hour;
- The feeling of weightlessness through a 360-degree zero gravity roll;
- One-of-a-kind custom coaster trains modeled after a classic 1960’s sports convertible;
and
- A smoother, sleeker, more intense ride than ever before.

Construction on Twisted Cyclone is underway and the ride is expected to debut in the spring of 2018.

Six Flags Magic Mountain 2018:
LOS ANGELES, Calif. — August 31, 2017 — Six Flags Magic Mountain, the undisputed “Thrill Capital of the World,” today unveiled plans for a crazy fun 2018 when CraZanity, the world’s tallest pendulum ride, makes its debut in late spring. At a record-breaking 17-stories in the air, this impressive giant disk will reach speeds up to 75-miles-per-hour, as it whips back and forth— higher and higher to give riders a staggering view of the world below them.
The Los Angeles-based theme park also recently announced it is entering the destination travel market by launching a 365-day operating calendar on January 1, 2018. With Southern California welcoming more than 47 million visitors annually and a noted theme park mecca, Six Flags will now have an operating schedule on par with all other theme parks in Southern California.

“Known world-wide for having the best thrills bar none, combined with a strong and expanding global Six Flags brand, there is no better time to enter the destination market. The addition of 100 days not only greatly expands our travel industry opportunities, but also allows us to further leverage the vast population of 24-million Southern California residents and our valued Season Pass Holder base who recognize that Six Flags Magic Mountain is hands down the place for thrills,” said Park President Bonnie Sherman Weber. “The new CraZanity is a mash up of craziness and insane fun, an experience different from anything else we have in our unparalleled thrill ride arsenal. We are delighted to introduce what will be the centerpiece of a newly-themed, Boardwalk area, and another world-record attraction.”

The Boardwalk highlights include:
• CraZanity – where 40 riders will experience speeds up to 75 miles-per-hour as they
reach a world-record 17 stories high;

• The pendulum swings back and forth while rotating counterclockwise;

• As guests swing higher and higher, they will experience a feeling of weightlessness at
172 feet in the air; and,

• Enhanced Bumper Cars, renovated attractions, dining, games and shopping.

The video is live on the website but not the individual thumbnails. I am here for all the additions. Minus the super loop of course.

I didn't see Discovery Kingdom getting the Skywarp tho. That's surprised me. Since the said "world's first" for Great Adventure, I thought that's where it was headed. Great Adventure instead got a America's first."
