Mr. CP&LERR Fan, there's a lot of terrific stuff in the history section of this site. You can spend a lot of time there. Please check it out. Thanks for posting this.

I, for one, will welcome the return of The Bat - and the new colors. Maybe the whole area could have an autumn/haunt theme of some kind........Skycoaster could become something to do with owls.....Flying Owl, Night Owl, Flight Owl......just meandering thoughts. Skycoaster isn't an actual coaster to me. Have never liked the Flight Deck name personally. Just looked into the history section; there's some great old pictures of the original Bat. Thanks for posting this so quickly, Gentlemen.

Nice use of "extreme" in there, Mr. coasterfanatic; I like it. And if I - an old-timer - might offer a word of advice to you and Mr. YS - take the high road and ignore the ignorant. Be the better men and make the world a better place. We will all benefit.

Looks incredible to me. And every place raises ticket prices, etc., when they develop new attractions........thanks for posting this link, Mr. Roberts.

#69016 Let the Speculation Begin- New Ride at X-SOB Area

Mr. CoasterMyths79, I heard something about this being the return of The Bat rather than Banshee..........more diversionary tactics, I suppose.......we shall soon know.

Mr. Ride WarriorAP, generally speaking Monday and Tuesday are the least crowded. You got unlucky apparently. You might try Wednesday or Sunday as your next best bet, but you just never know. Depends on how many school and church groups are there and what the weather is, etc. It does seem to get more crowded in August as the season begins to draw to a close, so maybe you will have better luck in July.

I agree, Mr. Roberts, especially for those with children. It's a real safety issue in the world as it is now. Don't think it would be forced on people but it definitely is a viable option for security - and for older people too, who might wander away. And Mr. AA0, Big Brother is everywhere already - there are millions of cameras out there, pretty much everywhere we go. Generally speaking, I think they keep us safer under most conditions, and they sure help catch a lot of people who steal from stores, etc. Maybe eventually the crime rate will go down more because of those cameras and other gadgets that will become more available in the future. Technology is fascinating. As long as it's protecting those who do no wrong and catching the crooks, I have no problem with it. Look at all the people who post their every move on Facebook - that, I think, is very dangerous - and not smart at all. But just my opinion; to each his own.
