SIX FLAGS MEXICO
Mexico City, Mexico (Abbreviation: SFM)
Formerly: Reino Aventura
Six Flags Theme Parks
Park News - (7/23/15) According to a Facebook post by MontanaRusa, some ground clearing work has begun near the base of Superman's lift hill. Could this be some advance work for something new planned for 2016?
This will take the place of the park’s Terminator X laser battle attraction that has been there for the past four years. Guests will be armed with laser based official Ghostbuster gear in the Headquarters downstairs and instructed by a team of live actors who will play “seasoned Ghostbusters” who lead them through an adventure through the two-story La Llorona building inside Six Flags Mexico. Once upstairs they will be broken up into teams and compete against each other inside an environment that will feature iconic characters from the film, ghost gates, hidden targets and ‘surprise characters’.
Meanwhile the pieces of the old Skycoaster that was removed from the Hurricane Harbor waterpark by Six Flags over Texas have been seen laying about in a section of the parking lot. I'm not sure if the two projects are related or not, or if the new construction may be tied to the Justice League dark ride rumor (see below).
(6/15/15) Our friends at CoasterRadio had the chance to interview the creators of the new Ghostbusters attraction at Six Flags Mexico. Click here to hear Dom McChesney give some good details about the new experience and what Sony allowed them to do. Plus it seems CoasterRadio’s own Mike Collins got to provide the voice for Louis Tulley (Rick Moranis’ character) in the new attraction, which is way cool!
(6/11/15) Six Flags Mexico is adding a unique new attraction this summer in the form of a Ghostbusters themed attraction. Yes, Sony in on board and signed off on this, so this is an official REAL Ghostbusters branded attraction from Lynton V Harris and The Sudden Impact! Entertainment Company.
2015 - SkyScreamer - (3/9/15) A new webpage based on covering the coasters and rides of Mexico, www.thecoasterzone.com, has posted a video from the opening media day of the Sky Screamer at Six Flags Mexico. Check it out below!
I'm not quite sure what was going on based on the still photos at the start of the video, but it looks like they invited a biker gang into the park to help open the new ride. LOL! In all seriousness though, Six Flags management has been showing Six Flags Mexico some serious love over the past couple of years with the addition of the Joker spinning coaster, the Medusa Steel Coaster transformation and now Sky Screamer. According to interviews with Brett Petit (Six Flags' SVP Marketing) an announcement for another very exciting new attraction for the park will be made this August that he considers to be even more exciting than the new Sky Screamer.
(3/3/15) A post from Six Flags Mexico showing off the park’s new Sky Screamer ride confirms that it will open to park guests on March 7th.
(8/28/14) Confirmed, Six Flags Mexico will add a new 24-story tall Sky Screamer ride in 2015.
(8/26/14) Coaster-Net did some incredible digging into the official Six Flags website and using their knowledge of Drupal, the content management system Six Flags uses for it, apparently they were able to pull the names for many of the new 2015 attractions to be announced on Thursday.
According to their report Six Flags Mexico will add a Sky Screamer.
2016 - Justice League: Battle For Metropolis - Rumor - (6/9/15) After talking to a few people, I'm hearing that two more version of Justice League: Battle for Metropolis are being planned for the 2016 season. From the sound of things, the one solid lock for the first one seems to be for Six Flags Great America. I don't know the location of where it might go, though it was pointed out that the park could put the old IMAX / Pictorium building to use for it.
The location of the second one is more up for debate it seems, with rumors pointing to both Six Flags Mexico as well as Six Flags over Georgia. If I had to guess myself, I'd lean towards Georgia myself, for many of the reason I posted yesterday in my thoughts on the issue as well.
