I like these better than the Windseekers that's for sure. No comparison. The one at SFGadv is 425 feet so I doubt this one is going to be any taller.

Jen, your version is 242 feet.

I wasn't expecting SFNE to get one in the 400 foot range. I would have thought they would have left it for the Texas Skyscreamer as it makes sense to put the biggest one in your original location.

Should be a hell of a view from up there twice as tall as Superman ROS. I will not call it that Biz name

Boy was I odd on that one. Me and Jon were talking about it when we were a the park on Monday and I looked it up on my cell phone. I apparently read that very wrong, LOL!

It looks like SFNE is putting the Sky Screamer over in the area where the Catapult(Swat)was. I wonder if it will be seen from the intersection of the River Road and Main Street.

So this one is going to be taller than the one that just broke the record at six Flags Over Texas????

According to Wikipedia, take it or leave it, it's the same height, at least the actual ride. All the fluff at the top may put it a few insignificant feet different from each other.

Hey, who IS this Bruce personage?

May be too close to see from that intersection...trees might get in the way.
It would definitely be visible from the route 5 bridge over the river, which is a few miles away...I always look left to see S:ROS and Scream.

Mike B, can you shoot me an e-mail? I'd like to ask you something. sonbeast1964@yahoo.com

Thanks, Mike G.

HI BRUCE! I can only imagine the view, Im not sure where that location is but the ride is twice as tall as Superman (Refuse to say the Z name) The view from the top of Superman is awesome. Should be visible from far around. :)

Z name? I didn't know they had 'Zod' the coaster. I guess we must kneel before his greatness :)

Hi Mike,

It's been a little while since I have posted on the URC. I saw the post and figured I had to throw my 2 cents in :-)

I agree ! I was drawing my conclusion about the location by what I saw in their news conference that was on the Springfield Republican site. >> http://www.masslive.com/news/index.ssf/2013/08/skyscreamer_six_flags_new_england_in_agawam_unveils_ta.html

This is one ride that I will happily watch from the ground. Its just way to high and open for me. I like Kingda Ka, but I'm strapped into a coaster and only up there for about 16 seconds.

We learned where the Sky Screamer is going to be located at SFNE. It's going to be located where the Sky Coaster is right now, which is about 12 feet higher than the surrounding area.

I think that area is also the highest elevation in the park, which is going to give the Sky Screamer one heck of a view of the park and surrounding area.
