They are at SFStL underneath batman. I'm pretty sure they are being used for parts for American Thunder

Edit: Here's proof

I only rode Roar once in 2008 and I found it pretty fun. Definitely in the upper half of wooden coasters I have ridden. I actually like both of SFAs wooden coasters more than KDs. Which therefore makes that the only thing I like about SFA more than KD :lol:

the center of Titan at SFoT is used for storage too. . so while on the Coaster, you're in a helix with perfect views of: parts of the Trioka, decommissioned parking lot shuttles, and rafts from Thunder River/Roaring Rapids that are out of service.

Klassy!

What's funny is that they could pass this off as theming, since theming on Batman coasters usually consists of dilapidated cars and scrap metal. :lol:

For what it's worth, Mean Streak's infield always had all kinds of ride parts, extra pieces, and even Halloweekends props strewn about in clear view. It's not like every park has a giant warehouse or a ton of storage space to work with. Some have to make do.
Total: 240 | Steel: 183 | Wooden: 57

Last Coaster Ridden: Intimidator 305 at Kings Dominion on August 24, 2018.

And you can also see a bunch of crap next to millennium force as well. They used to have extra Gemini trains sitting inside of mean streaks infield. At one time, they even had a train from geauga lakes double loop coaster. I assume they were using it for parts.

Personally I feel like there's a huge difference between putting spare parts near a coaster where only eagle-eyed-enthusiasts would notice while flying by at 90 mph and putting them in a queue line but I mean... okay. :lol:
