With all the amazing possibilities of a new year in front of theme park fans right now, here are four questions that have me wondering about 2019.
1. Can Six Flags deliver the Fast & Furious ride that Universal should have built?
Fast & Furious — Supercharged gives Universal Studios Hollywood’s Studio Tour the rousing final act it always needed. The rest of the tour takes visitors behind the scenes, but this simulated high-speed chase through downtown Los Angeles.
As a stand-alone attraction, Florida’s version of Supercharged is just another cheesy screen-based show in a park that already has too many of them. Now, Six Flags Magic Mountain is working on a high-speed launched racing coaster.
