The latest photos added to the gallery are of Miracle Strip Park. This is a small park located in Panama City Beach, Florida and is reminiscent of our old Pontchartrain Beach Amusement Park. This is the last season for this park, which is home to a classic wooden coaster called Starliner. Check out photos of this coaster and more photos of this soon to be defunct park.
Also added to the gallery are photos of Six Flags over Texas' Holiday in the Park from this past December. These photos capture this beautiful park decorated for the holidays during the day and night.

Six Flags is getting a new Mardi Gras section. Six Flags Great America in Illinois that is. So, what does this have to do with SFNO? Just check out some of the names of the new rides: Jester's Wild Ride, King Chaos and Big Easy Balloons. They are even getting a new coaster named Ragin' Cajun (ala Pontchartrain Beach). They are expanding their existing New Orleans themed area. Does this mean that next year SFNO will add a Chicago themed section to the park with a signature coaster called "Sears Tower", the tallest coaster in America. We can wish can't we? Check out the complete news article for more information.
