Sidewinder Safari Coaster Dropped From Six Flags Website
Over the last few weeks, COVID-19 has made a large impact on the amusement industry. From delayed openings to alterations of season passes, COVID-19 has mainly affected the operational standpoint of parks.
Until today, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom has been actively promoting the Sidewinder Safari coaster on their website.
As of today (4/8/2020), the Safari page has been taken down with access being restricted. The ride is not listed on the app as well.
The status of the safari coaster is currently unknown. The move could be part of Six Flags’ plans on eliminating $40-50 million spent on discretionary capital projects, as a way of enhancing liquidity.
The ride was described to be a highly themed and immersive attraction. Before boarding Sidewinder Safari, guests were to enter a safari-themed queue line. With snakes, lizards and other reptiles surrounding them, guests would board spinning coaster vehicles for an exhilarating experience families and teens alike would enjoy.
Other Sidewinder Safari highlights include:
- Multiple 360 degree sideway spins;
- Rapid-strike drops;
- Twisting and turning hairpin curves;
- Cars that allow four people to enjoy the fun together.
