True, but putting Goliath a mere 11 miles from a copy of itself seems like something of a failure to plan, or at least recognize what their competitors have. It's not like SFFT was the only SF park that didn't have a Batman clone already.

Anywho, back to the regularly scheduled SFMM discussion: I agree that a S:UF clone (a la SFDK) would fit much better in the Deja Vu footprint. I can't say I see them swapping the new S:UF and GL:FF as long as they're both still drawing significant lines.

I'm assuming TPR is going to have some local so-cal badasses to go check out Lex Luthor...when can we expect reviews? I know it's opening on the 7th. I realllyyyyy need to get to West Coast bash now. Giant Drop in Australia was incredible! I know Blue Fall's reviews say it packs more of a punch on the drop, but people are going to love this ride.

^^^I would go, but I'm still moping over the fact that I leave for an already planned vacation the day Lex opens, and I'm gone for the week that they have rescheduled the EDT's :cry:

But I'm sure TPR will have SOMEONE there!

I will probably take a ride on Lex Luthor on Sunday before I leave on Monday for a vacation.

Unfortunately, I'm leaving the day it opens for a week long vacation, so I won't be able to get a ride in until the following week after :(.

I will provide you with maximum pleasure.

I don't really understand why Colossus would get a Rocky Mountain treatment...it may not have much in terms of forces, but it's butter smooth. Seriously.

From the SFMM Facebook page:
Watch a live webcast of the media launch of Lex Luthor: Drop of Doom, tomorrow @ 11am, before it opens to the public this Saturday. Click here for the details: http://www.videonewswire.com/event.asp?id=87953

Good idea to live stream the media event for those who can't make it. I'll be watching it for sure :)

But does "butter smooth" necessarily equal "exciting"?

Not at all. But it is definitely "fun." It just seems strange to me that a park would dump a ton of cash into a classic wooden coaster that is already fun and running like a gem.

Not that I'm against it. I'm all for thrills and airtime and upkeep and blah blah blah. I'm just not really sure why it makes sense in THIS case.
