Six Flags Fiesta Texas' 2015 Balloon Loses Altitude + Quick Coaster Image

© Six Flags Fiesta Texas
So many strange things are happening at Six Flags Fiesta Texas - first a giant balloon appeared above the park with the park's logo and "2015" on it, and how that balloon seems to have taken a sharp dive downward.

The park tweeted this photo today, of the balloon just a few feet above the ground, right next to a bridge/tunnel that was a part of the park's now-permanently closed auto ride.  The park isn't saying exactly what this means, but one might guess that a new ride (coaster?) could make good use of that tunnel!

Just this evening the park's Twitter feed shared this image, with no additional information given.  Clearly it is a coaster, and appears to be a Roller Coaster Tycoon created version of a S&S El Loco ride.  The tweet was only live for brief amount of time, and has now been deleted.

An S&S El Loco being added to the park seems unlikely, however, there could be a hint in the ride's manufacturer.  S&S has already said that they've sold and will open one of their new 4-D Free Fly coasters next year at a major park, and may have pegged Six Flags Fiesta Texas as the recipient.

Hang in there and we will continue to watch for new clues!
