 I love Fun Time Star Flyers and they're a definite crowd pleaser.  The ride itself is not too intense, yet the experience is thrilling due to the height and complete lack of any surrounding vehicle protecting you from the outer limits of space.   This should be a good addition to Six Flags America.  I know they're also a park in the chain that's itching to get a new steel roller coaster, so hopefully they're next in line to get another joker clone (HEHE).
