    Interestingly it looks like the RMC Goliath clone that also appears in the Six Flags Dubai concept art, at some point they switched to GCI for whatever reason, but intriguingly this makes it look like they switched after sending the rides from six flags to the other parks, which doesn’t make too much sense.

    Thanks for letting me know that it's a star flyer. It looked like a drop tower due to its resemblance to Superman: Tower of Power. I was thinking that instead of building a PowerSplash, Mack Rides could open their first PowerLoop there. If you didn't know, Mack Rides announced that they will add a loop to their PowerSplash model, called the PowerLoop. Basically, it's a separate model but with a loop. It's the first water coaster ever to have an inversion.

    Here's a video showcasing how the coaster would look like:

    The ride currently being build is a StarFlyer, CGI Hybrid and a Mack SuperSplash at the Bollywood Park. Motion gate is receiving a Maurer Spinning and S&S FreeSpin.

    There are in total 12 former Six Flags rides being relocated into the current parks, as mentioned in the financial report of Q1 2020. Suppose to open within the next 12 months. The remaining rides have not yet been announced/constructed.

  5. This is a starflyer attraction and not a drop tower. We can also see it in the Six Flags Dubai renders.

    For NYSM, it's a spinning coaster, not the Mack launch coaster that goes to the entrance of the Six Flags Dubai park in the rendering. This one is not part of the current expansions but probably kept aside as a big ride in a next phase (let's remember that only 12 rides are now being installed at the current parks, out of the 26 they have in stock from the Six Flags project).

    As far as I know, these are the 5 rides which have been relocated from Six Flags Dubai to Motiongate (2 rides) and Bollywood Parks Dubai (3 rides). Note that in the concept art for the NYSM rollercoaster, the non-inverting loop is near the entrance of the unfortunate demise of Six Flags Dubai. The loop is near the place where it says Six Flags Dubai.

    It could be the concept art when the PowerSplash wasn't decided on where it would be relocated, I guess. The PowerSplash might have an opening next month as it states 2020 as it's opening year. The hybird coaster will open sometime next year. Is there any info about the stats of the hybrid? And one more thing, is there any pics showing construction pics of the upcoming rollercoaster in Motiongate? All there is in RCDB is the concept art. One more thing is that I can't believe that the NYSM rollercoaster has a loop, that too, a non-inverting one!

    The former photo is the RCDB page of Bollywood Parks Dubai. The latter photo is a rollercoaster planned for the theme park mentioned. This means that a Mack PowerSplash is confirmed, and it must be from Six Flags Dubai.
