Why does Six Flag show no reference to DC in Wonder Woman ride name and Rivals shows it 2 times?

I assume because the common man knows Wonder Woman is DC or at the very least 'comic book' themed. Whereas Rivals is relatively unknown by many people, so I guess they wanted Joe public to know its very much superhero, comic themed from the get go.

Over Texas and New England are both getting gyro swings of their own, with the same name. That's 3 of those so far.

I'm liking the Top Spin ride that's going to Great Adventure, and RMC Georgia Cyclone looks great but is pretty short.

Full announcement video:

 

Looks like Jim Meme Anderson is back, and cringier than ever before.

My thoughts:

SFGAD/SFOT - Looks like a pretty decent flat ride. Been waiting for one of these to pop up for a while. The cyborg theme for SFGAD is pretty cool but I've certainly had enough of the Harley Quinn theme.

SFNE/SFFM - These frisbees look pretty fun and I don't really mind that they're installing a bunch of them since they will be good rides. I think this year's installations are enough though. The names aren't great though, I'm sick of the Harley Quinn theme and what even is Crazanity???? Magic Mountain definitely needed a decent flat like this though, and the new area looks pretty cool.

Great Escape - Were we really expecting anything more?

La Ronde - This part is zoomed over so quickly I'm not entirely sure what it is - a flat ride package? Looks okay.

SFA - LOL SFA really has no luck hahaha

SFGA - Noooooo I thought we had seen the end of these :'(

St Luis - Looks pretty decent for a waterslide actually

SFOG - Best of the lot. Doesn't look too long but it's guaranteed to be a good ride since it's made by RMC.

SFFT - Yeah we knew this was coming. Great ride. Awful capacity.

Mexico - I'm really trying to ignore the awful colour scheme, because it's great this is not just another Joker.

SFDK - We knew one of these was coming, and it looks like a nice alternative to a super loop. But the fact that they already have a super loop makes me think if this would've been better off at a park that didn't have one (more specifically, give this to SFGA instead of their super loop).

I'm glad Six Flags isn't installing too many of a single ride type that they did in previous years, five super loops in 2015 or 2016, and three Free spins in 2017 (try say that five times fast). But I don't really like Six Flags overusing names on different rides. I can't count how many rides are called "Harley Quinn Spinsanity" or "The Joker" at Six Flags parks now, because there are probably more of them than there are Batman clones called "Batman: The Ride". I get that Six Flags is notorious for cloning rides, but come on. 

Looks like one of Six Flags' bigger seasons in terms of investment. 2018 looks to be a great year for the industry (at least over in the States that is)

MW should think about getting one of these  (theme and all).  They have a perfect spot for it between AA and SDSC. Reopen the old LW shop space and link back the corridor toward Main Street and the whole area could open right up nicely.
