Six Flags Over Texas Demolishes Lone Star Theatre...2020 Attraction?

I've looked at its plot of land in the park. Lone Star Stadium was located just to the right of New Texas Giant's first overbanked turn, and across from Yosemite Sam's Gold River Adventure - it doesn't occupy a large amount of land, however. A quick Google Earth measurement using the Polygon tool reveals that its plot was around 3/10ths of an acre - a Skywarp or new restaurant could probably fit in that plot, but not much else.

But I suppose that could well have changed locations for all we know! Whatever it is, it's sure to be exciting!
I was told by someone who has friends in the industry that after the flooding Six Flags Over Texas endured last year, their future plans have had to be majorly reworked. See: Lone Star Revolution being relocated to the other side of the park and re-named El Diablo.

Ah right. Thanks for the clarification @Kw6sTheater!

I definitely think that a Premier Sky Rocket II could fit. I know they have a free spin but Discovery Kingdom has both by 2019, so wouldn't be the first

A Skyrocket II would take up around twice the land made available by the theatre's removal, per Google Earth measurements. That'd be better suited for the Aquaman site, in my opinion.
 
Would the Raptor in question stretch towards New Texas Giant, the Chapparal Antique Cars or Yosemite Sam’s Gold River Adventure? Either way, I’m remaining doubtful that this plot of land will accomodate a Raptor. On the other hand, the theatre to the left of Superman Tower of Power could...
Definitely

They use that for concerts still. Raptors have tiny footprints, you don't need much space and considering how minimal supported the lift and turnaround are, easy to wiggle in.

Even if they did wiggle in a Raptor, the train tracks and Chapparal Antique Cars would have to be seriously rerouted, which is something Six Flags doesn’t tend to do. Or alternatively, they could design a custom layout to fit the long and narrow site. ;)

There are also rumors circulating the antique cars are on the way out.

I mean, they could always go custom and have it go into NTG infield, but it's Six Flags...lol.

There's definitely a possibility of a custom though! The antique cars removal rumour is interesting...

Where did you hear these, out of interest? I’d be genuinely saddened by this, as I love a good antique cars ride.

People. I'm local (literally stopped by this afternoon just for a ride on Shockwave because it was walk on) so I've heard a few murmurs. It could just be coming from Texas Thrill Seekers and people are telling me those rumors, or they may be more substantial, I haven't put too much weight into it.

Will add that the Larson loop is ugly as **** and offends me deeply.
