They've been removed from SFOT and SFGAM as well. I think somehow they were slowing down the ride, they now appear to be running faster. Maybe they won't have to close in 20 mph winds anymore :lol:

I know they were supposed to help flipping but if it is running faster, maybe that will also give more flips.

It seemed to be flipping a bit more yesterday when I was watching it. Didn't ride tho since I think the ride is just meh and don't want to wait for it.

On the other they had ERT for Superman and it was running so fast it was insane. I don't know what they did to the ride but it's been running like an absolute dream this year. It's still easily the best coaster in the park imo.

That's very interesting about Superman. I noticed last summer that it had a "warm up" time. I rode it first thing in the morning, and I was fairly underwhelmed because it was pretty sluggish, but as the day went on, it got MUCH faster. That's good to hear it is running like that. If it weren't for those ridiculous trains/restraints, it would be one of my favorite coasters. The lap bars are some of the most uncomfortable I've ever ridden (and yes, I have no problem with those on Skyrush).

Even with those restraints, it's still a top 5 coaster for me with how it has ridden over the past month. I've been riding it since 2007 and can't recall it ever running this wildly.

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

Does anyone know if it has been running this week? If not... I'm still going, was just curious, can't pass up Wicked Cyclone and Superman!



Don't forget to try ME since it has the new trains. It's a much better ride now.

As long as the VR isn't being used, Mind Eraser shouldn't have too long of a line.

Those horrifically bad lap bars are the sole reason it's not my #1 anymore and El Toro took that spot. I'm not a large guy by any means, 5'11" 150 lbs. but my God they're painful. Even with those it's completely epic and will always be one of my favorite coasters, the layout is such a masterpiece I can look past the restraints.

Thanks for the advice guys, I shamefully missed visiting my home park last year and opted for a Cedar Point/SFGAM/Holiday World trip instead. Has it been very busy this week? Also, I am so excited to see Joker has a single rider line. I know some of the single rider lines have been added removed to rides over the years, what else besides Joker has single rider, please? I am really hoping for multiple rides on my beloved RMC.

Sadly, no single rider line on Wicked Cyclone. Fireball, Scream and Pandemonium all have single rider lines though. The Pandemonium and Scream ones are the same as the Flash Pass line.
