Park News - (7/16/12) According to our friends at MontanaRusa, Six Flags Mexico will put on their very own version of Fright Fest this year called Festival Del Terror. The event will feature 5 mazes, though there will be an extra cost for them.
(2/16/12) New construction pictures of Medusa, showing off the brand new re-tracked ride sections at Six Flags Mexico can be found over at MontanaRusa.com. So far it does not appear that they are using Topper Track.
2013 - The Joker - (4/3/13) Six Flags Mexico has apparently announced that the Batman stunt show will be retired after running for the past seven years. Nothing has been said about what will replace it, or when.
Also new... Even wanted to see what a day at Six Flags Mexico is like? Check out the embedded video below posted by our friends at MontanaRusa.com.
(3/8/13) Our friends at MontanaRusa have posted pictures from the opening of The Joker at Six Flags Mexico on their Facebook page this week. The ride appears to be a hit with the park guests who also enjoy ride’s entrance themed as a FunHouse. They’ve also posted a video with both on and off-ride footage showing The Joker in action.
(2/27/13) The Joker continues to test and you can see a video of the coaster in action below shot by our friends at MontanaRusa. They also tell me that the Media day and public Grand Opening dates have been pushed back a week to March 6th for Media and March 7th for the public. The park has also opened a new show called Blackout and you can see a few pictures from the performance here.
(2/20/13) Our friends over at MontanaRusa.com have posted a few pictures showing off The Joker making test runs at Six Flags Mexico.
(2/18/13) Sources tell me that testing has begun on The Joker at Six Flags Mexico and the park is hoping to hold the official private Media event to promote the coaster on February 28th, and will open to the public on March 1st if all goes well.
(1/25/13) The latest report from Six Flags Mexico is that construction on The Joker is nearly complete. A picture showing off the progress on The Joker was found posted to Facebook on Monday here. In addition I’m told that the park appears to be repainting Superman: El Ultimo Escape as well.
(1/18/13) I have been told that Six Flags Mexico started construction on The Joker coaster last week. We hope to find pictures of the project under way soon.
(9/17/12) Six Flags Mexico did confirm their new coaster last week after all, and as rumored the new Gerstlauer spinning coaster will be called The Joker. They also created an animated video it, showing off some really fun new themeing that will be added to the ride experience. While there is never quite enough of it, what is there seems to fit well, such as the Big Top themed tent over the loading station, the large circus style freak show posters and the fog filled Tunnel of Terror at the end.
(8/29/12) While we have known Six Flags Mexico would be adding the Gerstlauer Spinning Coaster removed from Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in late 2011 for some time now, there has not been a clear answer as to what name the ride will use. Most of the rumors have speculated that it would feature some kind of DC Comics theme, and this appears to be true, as we can expect to see the coaster named after The Joker along with some rumored Funhouse style elements to be added into the queue. The park has already alerted the local media that they will have a live press event at the park on September 6t where they will likely announce this as well as push Fright Fest.
(6/22/12) For those who have been waiting for the new Spinning Coaster to open at Six Flags Mexico… your going to have to wait a little longer. I’ve been told that the new coaster will not be ready to open until 2013.
(4/6/12) Pieces of the former Pandemonium coaster from Six Flags Discovery Kingdom have been spotted in Plainview, Texas at the Larson International facility. The pieces will be sent on to Six Flags Mexico in about a month after getting some maintenance and a new coat of paint.
(12/8/11) The latest rumor regarding the move of Pandemonium to Six Flags Mexico claims that the coaster may be rethemed to The Joker when it reopens South of the border. Could we see Joker’s Pandemonium?
(11/22/11) When Pandemonium is sent to Six Flags Mexico, the latest rumors suggest that it will get repainted and rethemed to represent a DC Comics character. Just a guess… but could we have yet another Green Lantern coaster?
(9/2/11) According to a video blog by Jim Reid-Anderson, a big announcement is coming in the next month or two for Six Flags Mexico. While they didn’t say any more than that, Screamscape sources had previously confirmed that the former Pandemonium spinning coaster being removed from Six Flags Discovery Kingdom will be moved south of the border for the 2012 season.
(8/4/11) Screamscape sources have confirmed that Pandemonium, a Gerstlauer Spinning Coaster, will be removed from Six Flags Discovery Kingdom this winter and sent to another Six Flags parks. It seems a good bet that the coaster may find a new home at Six Flags Mexico. Stay tuned!
(8/1/11) Screamscape sources report that there is a chance that Six Flags Mexico could see the addition of a small family coaster for the 2012 season. Any readers visit the park lately and see any sign of construction or land survey work?
2014 - Iron Medusa - Rumor - (4/15/13) Wild rumor time… Screamscape sources tell us that Medusa at Six Flags Mexico may be the next Six Flags coaster to get the Iron Horse treatment. While the coaster really isn’t all that old, the old CCI coaster is in need of some heavy maintenance later this year anyway and Six Flags is rumored to have contracted the job out to the Rocky Mountain Coasters crew who will work in some impressive new improvements to Medusa as well as replace the Gerstlauer trains with a set of the new RMC trains that just premiered for the first time on Outlaw Run at Silver Dollar City.
