Because that day drastically effected your life so much. You still live in a free country where you post in a themepark forum every day.

As for SFA, I think they are moving the way of Dorney park in a sense that there is no need to pay attention to the dry side as much when the waterpark is the main draw.


I somewhat disagree. In the last 5 years, they added to the dry side 3 times, and the water park twice. Even in one of those water park years, they added VR. Our current lazy river was terrible. As said earlier, people will like this when it gets here. The only problem is that people aren't going to plan a trip to experience Wahoo River.

Since a great much of the park was repainted/repaired, they can use a lot of the extra funds to finish the last 10%. Maybe repaint a ride or two.

Do not buy in to anyone that says the ALL of the buildings need some TLC. This was true before HITP, but they refreshed every building before the event,not including Gotham. That's what they have to square away.

I don't see the need to come to that conclusion just yet. They did just add a nice Star Flyer to the dry side of the park. Now if they next three years are all water park installations or 2 years of nothing and 1 waterpark installation then I could agree with you. SFA has gotten a good bit of stuff added to the dry park in the last few years with a Star Flyer, Super Loop, Larson Flyers, 2 coasters, and a large children's area in Gotham City. Sure nothing that we're all just itching to go ride like an RMC, B&M (ignoring Apocalypse), or an Intamin. Certainly a lot more stuff than Dorney has received in the dry park in the last 8 years.
In my opinion El Toro and Intimidator 305 ride fairly and are free of material roughness.

Let me rephrase that. I shouldn't have said they don't care about the dry side but they are content with their coasters on the dry side. SFA just poured money into a ROAR retracking so I don't see an RMC retrack coming anytime soon and they certainly aren't going to build one from the ground up soon.

Yeah the only possibility I currently see is a S&S Free Spin which would be awesome as my other two local parks have nothing like that, but even that seems relatively unlikely.

Yes, I can get behind that. Though, let's not forget about Thunder Road.

They did a lot of retracking too. Rerides are a must. The second to last seat gives a superb ride. Looking forward to the cold weather, as the ride seems to really come out of hibernation.

How many years until we can get a 4D hand me down? :)

I agree that without the water park the dry park wouldn't stay open. The vast majority of the pools in the area require memberships and are cost prohibitive for the average SFA water park family.
Meister Brau just wants a path from CC to SM at SFA, meal plan burrito, some shade, and a restroom back there.

They should use the extra money to repaint joker's jinx (maybe not the supports, just the green track) and wild one (or add chaser lights). Mind eraser could definitely use new trains.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

No, my parents having sex effected my life. Pretty similar origin story to yours, I would guess.

The 2018 addition seems like a fan service. Great for Season Pass holders, but nothing to draw in new guests.
