I rode the now defunct python coaster 4 times the last year it was open as adventure world. Now that Six Flags took over and replaced it with Two-Face, is it still at the park, and could it ever be put back in its same place and move Two-Face to Gotham City where it belongs?

Python is located currently, dissasembled, back behind Superman and to the right of Batwing. In fact, if you look at the one full ride view of Batwing on Sam Marks's Page, <!-- BBCode auto-link start --><a href="http://members.aol.com/sixflagsam/Batwing.html" target="_blank">http://members.aol.com/sixflagsam/Batwing.html</a><!-- BBCode auto-link end -->, you'll see the now defunct Python in a pile in the upper coner of the pic. When I asked SFA if they were ever going to rebuild it, they said if they were, they were going to have to do something about all those steps because that was the biggest complaint. Because SFA can only build one coaster a year, look for the forth comming of the former Python the year they build the new waterpark. Also, possibly, look for it to have the station at ground level with the loop in a hole in the ground. That would be my guess. I'm almost sure they're planning on rebuilding it, why else would they keep it on site, it's just a matter of when.

thanks alot, coasterlover. my friend and i were riding superman on the last day of the year last year when my friend pointed out the green stuff. i didn't have my glasses on, so i couldn't see it very well. we both figured that it was some weird generator. i completely forgot about the Python! my friend had never been here while it was up, so it's good to know where it is and its possible future. thanx alot!

Oh yeah, I heard a rumor that they would build it underground and call it the "Batcave."

is that a joke, or are they actually thinking of calling it the Batcave? if they did, it would have to be repainted another color. a great name either way, and i recommend a coloring of solid black.

<BR>if the water park is being moved behind superman in gotham city, why not call it

It won't matter much, considering it will be underground and covered. But I am certain that they would paint it. And that's not that big of a deal, they paint coasters all the time.

<BR>Nice idea, I hope that they'll do something like that. Or even better, put it inside the water park, and allow people to shoot water at them and give it that name. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

what is life without geniuses? seemingly alot less intelligent <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

<BR>i heard that the python used to let people off at the other end of the station so they wouldn't have to go backwards. is this true? i remember the trains on the ride, and unfortunately i have not seen any others with both forward and backward seats.
<BR>
<BR>about the water park, i hope they're actually adding stuff and not just moving it, because most of it is pretty pathetic. either way, i could think of some great creative designs for the lazy river. how about instead of just looking up at the sky for over 6 boring minutes, why not GET SOME THEMING and make it indoors, like an actual ride with the superheroes or something. and for the wave pool, make the big warehouse that the waves come out of look like the ice cream place that is mr. freeze's hideout on the mr. freeze rollercoaster ride in st. louis. i know all of this probably won't happen, but it's a shame that poor theming has come with the arrival of the Six Flags name. Two Face belongs in gotham city, and there's no real purpose to be moving the water park back there instead.
