Park News - (2/19/2023) I’m hearing that the “Rowdy’s Heave Ho” family drop tower ride has been removed from the Six Flags website, meaning it could be leaving the park before the start of the season.
(1/22/2023) Six Flags Darien Lake has confirmed that more Titan Track upgrades are coming to Predator for the 2023 season.
(12/31/2022) While nothing has been mentioned officially by Six Flags Darien Lake, I’ve been sent a rumor claiming that the park may be trying to bring back their traditional evening Laser light show spectacular for the guests during the 2023 season. With the various COVID related travel restrictions between the US and Canada now dropped, the park is expecting to see a rise in Canadian visitors to the park once more in 2023. Ending the day with a big night show is always a good way to ensure a park can keep their guests on-site through to the end of the day as well, so we’ll just have to wait and see if it really happens.
(12/30/2022) While I haven’t seen anything confirmed just yet, Screamscape has heard that Predator at Darien Lake will very likely add more sections of GCI’s Titan Track to the layout ahead of the 2023 season after a successful first test season. Anyone know more?
(9/4/22) Six Flags Darien Lake has announced a number of limited-time special events that the park will host over the next 12 months. This includes:
Fright Fest on select nights from Sept. 17 through Oct 15
Kids Fest on Weekends from June 3 to June 25, 2023
Festival of Light - Nightly June 23 to Sept. 4, 2023
Can/Am Friendship Festival - July 1 to July 4, 2023, with Independance Day and Canada Day fireworks celebrations.
Beach Party Weekend - July 21 to July 23 in Hurricane Harbor
International Festival - Sept. 1 - Sept. 4, Sept 9, Sept. 16, 2023 (craft beers, international foods, music, artisans and more)
(5/14/22) Six Flags Darien Lake confirmed with a picture on their Facebook page that the rumored section of Titan Track has been installed onto their Predator wooden roller coaster. Keep in mind that this is just supposed to be a section of track that was replaced, probably 100 to 200 ft in length. While this isn’t much in comparison to the overall length of the ride, if they installed this in an area known to be particularly rough the difference felt when riding over this season should feel like night and day compared to the rest of the ride.
Or at least, that’s the intention, along with creating a section of track that should be more beneficial to the coaster’s maintenance team.
2023 - Nothing new is expected this season at this time...
