Nick absolutely refused to ride it when we were there recently, because YEARS (many) ago, he greyed out on that Helix.

Those positive g-forces are what make me love Titan. It’s cool to have a hypercoaster that isn’t focused predominantly on airtime.

I know more about donkeys than women!

BREAKING NEWS!!!

Yosemite Sam's Gold River Adventure dark ride may be closed for good! The website http://www.overtexasthrills.com is reporting that the park's classic dark ride suffered extensive damage in the recent floods. So much so that it may never open again. Reports of extensive damage to both animatronics and set pieces caused when flood waters raised the boats off their flume. The boats then floated into the ride's various set pieces and animatronic figures causing wide spread damage which may be irreparable.

I hope that isn't true, but I think we all knew it was a matter of time regardless. It's such a unique, fun ride that tons of people of all ages still enjoyed and had fond memories of. Being inside and climate controlled was also a good thing.

I don't understand why there isn't a push for more family friendly dark rides without making it overly complex with guns/3d screens/etc. A few animatronics and some nice sets and you have a fun adventure.

Something is not right here. This attraction is nowhere near a flood zone. Somebody overfill it ???? Just seems kind of strange that in 50+ years this building and trough has never had this happen. IMHO this had not been a great for for SFOT. Uncompleted construction. Numerous ride closures. I have seen the Park dirtier than I have ever seen it this past year. The food stand crews have had 2 speeds this year- slow and stop. Maybe I have been unlucky. It just seems like it has been a rough year.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

That'd be terrible news if they're removing that dark ride. I had no clue it even existed before my visit and it was the surprise of the day. It's something you wouldn't expect from a park like Six Flags.
