  1. Here's my TR beware of nitpicking On July 17th Me and My friend got up at 4am to drive 3 hours or so to my sisters house in Locust Grove VA. From there we picked up my sister(and she drove to the park) to go to Six Flags America. The closest Six Flags to me I've never been........and ironically the first Six Flags I went to was Fiesta Texas..... ANYWAY driving up to the park I noticed there was no advertisement on billboards or anything. Not even a brown sign until you get off the interstate. But anyway once we got there I noticed the foliage in the parking lot was actually nicer than your typical flat no tree amusement park parking lot. We payed 20 dollars for prefered parking and went right to the front. It's nice when the entrance is a few feet from your car . I liked the entrance plaza it's actually really nice. I've heard a lot of bad things about SFA but I didn't think it was ghetto.......well the Gotham City area is somewhat....We walked in and went straight to Gotham City the park seemed really small(Fiesta and KD don't seem much different but BGE is a pain to walk around) and probably should expand........probably with a new coaster seeing their newest coaster is 7 years old........come on Six Flags.......even THBS would be nice. Something I gotta say about Gotham City it feels totally different from the rest of the park in a negative way there is pretty much no shade at all. It was 90 degrees all day(NINETY DEGREES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!). The first thing I wanted to ride was Joker's Jinx it's kinda interesting to me that I rode it's sister Poltergeist at SFFT less than a month ago. Unlike Polty(for those of you who read my TR of SFFT........probably less than 1% of coaster enthusiasts) this one was running two trains BUT a LOT slower it seemed to crawl through the upper hills. There was no line like Polty I mean at least a 4 5 train wait but not much of a line. After Joker I decided it was INTAMIN time. We walked right to Superman Ride of Steel. This was practically the whole reason I came to Six Flags America(along with credits ). NO LINE.........I loved this fact. Unlike most hypers(other than magnum) this one had no line at all this was sweet. I was nervous about the seatbelt after riding MF with its no slightly fat people nazi seatbelts.......wow I was wrong the seatbelt was just like most other coasters the problem was the lapbar on this one unlike Millie(TPR was right DONT WEAR SHORTS). This one had these evil EVIL little bars coming off the ends going down to the trains. These really sucked I had to squeeze my fat legs through they almost didnt let me ride the first time but they did and I felt stapled by that evil thing(god it made me miss ACs trains). But anyway I must say the ride was AWESOME. My #3 roller coaster ever(after millie and AC respectively). I mean yeah the helixes weren't that great but the huge airtime hills were a blast. I have no complaints about the long track straightaway. It builds anticipation for that massive airtime hill in front of you. Not to mention the last three camelbacks were a blast. After SROS we rode Batwing which had a really long SLOOOOOOOOOOW line. We waited about 30 minutes it was awful one train op with a badly organized station. If they wanted to get that right they should of had an op standing at the top of the stairs to direct us what row to go. They didn't so everyone was goin up and down clueless. We finally got a short line in row 5. I've ridden Stealthhawk Assimiborg before so I knew what to expect(this wasn't as nicely landscapped though) I did like the extra face down helix at the end though which is something Borghawk stealliator could use. After Batwing we decided to get another ride on SROS since the line was so short. After that we tried Blizzard River only to be greeted by a down ride that's down cause somebody puked I was wondering how in the world somebody could have puked on that ride but we found out it was gonna take another hour to open so we went off to Wild One. We walked over and were greeted by Wild One being fully operational and Two Face closed.......I knew ahead of time but it sucked I couldn't get that credit. So we went on Wild One which had unusually roomy PTC trains..........dunno why but Boardwalk Bullet and Rattler from my Texas trip had less roomy ones. The Wild One was a lot of fun for a typical out and back wooden. I loved the double down and the final helix. One of the best rides there. After that we went on Tower of Doom which had no line. This was a dinky Intamin drop tower. You'd blink and the cycle would be over with.........it's that small but it was pretty fun. After that I decided it was.............credit whore time. I walked over to The Great Chase and rode it alone with many small children in the front. Dang credit whorage. The lapbar sucked and the final turn made it hurt the crap out of my legs which sucked cause we went 4 times unlike the usual 3. This made it's spot on my Top 10 WORST coasters. After that we walked on over to Skull Mountain which was fun for what it was but I imagine it was better when you went backwards. Also they need to edit the recording in the station which still calls it Typhoon Sea Coaster. After getting a lil wet we rode Roar which I was nervous about a GCI with PTC trains. Surprisingly it was actually really fun not rough at all in fact the polar opposite of Rattler. My least favorite GCI but it was good. After that we rode the rapids.........another crap rapids of my ridden rapids ride list. I didn't get wet at all............and Oh god..........time for my very first Vekoma..............SLC...........*lightning flashes and evil music plays. Mind Eraser was my least favorite coaster other than the great chase. It would have been fun if the line wasnt long and I wasnt trying to prevent my ears from bleeding ugh badly designed in my opinion I also noticed that sometimes the wheels dont even touch the track.....ick. After that we wanted to get our grub on.........and didnt quite want Subway and Papa Johns which made up majority of the food options. We ate at the saloon place in the Mind Eraser area of the park. They kept playing tidbits of awful country music. The workers looked miserable in there but I don't blame them. The food wasnt that great not the best theme park food ive eaten(which belongs to trapper's.....) but it filled me up so I was good for the 2nd half of the day. Now that we had ridden all the coasters and it was only 3pm we decided to hit up Hurricane Harbor. First thing we did was hit up the huge wave pool.....the wave pool was gross and had way too many people in it the lifeguards must have a stressful day working the wavepool. We got out after like 10 minutes ugh it sucked. We went to Tornado. This was my first proslide tornado. I could of ridden the one at SFFT but the line was too long..............BIG mistake. I seriously thought this is the best waterslide I've ever ridden. Now I'm sure I might get flamed for loving it that much but it was a total blast. Every park I go to from now on that has one I WILL RIDE IT in fact I think they should make a law all waterparks must build or have tornados or be shut down.........it was that fun to me...haha. Afterwards we rode shark attack which was a good thrill probably would of been better if the water didnt cause me to shut my eyes halfway down. Afterwards we rode Bahama Blast now this was a load of fun too. I thought we were gonna go really slow but we hauled @$$ down it. After getting blasted we went on the orange and blue slides that weren't as cool as everything else they were kinda meh to me. After that we finished up Hurricane Harbor with a ride on THHP. I've ridden the edge at emerald pointe so I was kinda siked for this thing. I went on a single tube and my fat @$$ got unbelievably close to the top that the people watching were like WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAA........... So after that we dried off and got one last ride on SROS and Joker's Jinx(after some controversy in the stations with flash passers not caused by me). We headed out. Now I could tell the obvious differences between SFFT and SFA. SFFT is one of Shapiros favorites and SFA is obviously not. THHP seems to me like a quick last minute throw in. Also this park had a somewhat ghetto atmospeare where SFFT didn't at all.........also SFA had no lines which I liked better and no TVs showing SF commercials which got annoying at SFFT. But overall I had a blast at the park..........but Gotham City desperately needs foilage. Oh and the parking lot could be less confusing when getting out.
  2. ^ I said this on BGEscape........why does everybody hate KDs Hurler? Last time I rode in 2006 it was fun!..........Carowinds Hurler sucks so bad its my least favorite coaster EVER. I rode it last in 2004 and it pulled a few shoulder muscles.......
  3. Then go. We know your stance. Why must you keep complaining? --Robb Because I want to, I'm just making a joke out of it, that's what the turing was for(HINT). Like I said before, you must had not understood. I would had wanted another type, meaing 1 big flat instead of 3 small ones, that's just my wants and desires, don't you have the same for some things. It's not that very hard to comprehend with that. I'm still glad we are getting 3 flats to add to our addition(if we are), but why knock me if I want a large flat (newbie), dam*!! Dude chill. Since 2007 we've added a Proslide Tornado, a Proslide Mammoth, a second wavepool, a B&M Floorless(we've all been wanting a B&M forever at KD). 3 used flats is just fine and the ferris wheel if we get it would add some nice atmosphere to the grove section of the park. I think they'd do better at Carowinds. Since 2004......they've added their flyers, some other random flat that escapes my mind, a swimming pool, a kiddie water slide, a flat taken out and readded, a 2nd wavepool, swings, and next year a vekoma boomerang.....Kings Dominion has plenty of rides stop complaining. BGE gets a new ride every 2-5 years and they're doing just fine.
  4. I would have loved for a Giant Frissbee but this is just fine in my opinion.
  5. I'd love to try dude but when I go to an amusement park and start taking pictures I forget after a few rides thats what happened at SFFT .
  6. Ugh i'm nervous about SROS and its evil intamin seatbelts. I rode MF back in 2005 but I still had trouble with the evil seatbelt I weighed significantly less in 2005(no I didn't go to white castle and eat 100 burgers) its not really extra fat weight. I'm 6 foot and weigh about 260ish Im the dude in the weezer shirt haha
  7. SFGAdv would destroy SFA. Parc would have to spend tons of money to even come close to great adventure.
  8. Cedar Fair wont spend money on new trains when they have "perfectly good" trains already. But if it was Cedar Point...........
  9. No, standard B&M hyper trains have nine rows. Plus, the pictures confirm Behemoth-style seating. Correction: Apollo's Chariot has 9 rows.....
  10. Steel 1. Millennium Force 2. Apollo's Chariot 3. Alpengiest 4. Afterburn 5. Goliath(SFFT) Wood 1. Boardwalk Bullet 2. Lightning Racer 3. Thunderhead 4. Wildcat(HP) 5. Grizzly(KD)
  11. This sucks I loved that rapids ride back in 2001. It was fun I have a video of it somewhere. Psh wavepools.....
  12. Interesting. Looks like next year it's either Kings Island or Six Flags Over Georgia for me......
  13. I'm goin the 17th. I might take your idea it sounds pretty good. Tripadvisor makes the place sound really bad........
  14. I just realized >. The day im going to SFA is a thursday which means its on the stupid starburst concert thing series. Has anybody been on a thursday this season? Has it been crowded? EDIT: Okay im a little shaken about going after reading like 22 tripadvisor reviews. They were all horrible. I might decide to go to Kings Dominion instead afterall but I'm not sure yet. Like for example one review said they were scared to death walking back to their car in the poorly lit parking lot.......But then they love Kings Dominion and I've thought Kings Dominion is ghetto before. What do you guys think of Six Flags America in terms of people and operations NOWadays.
  15. I hope they paint it and give it a cool new name. I also hope they paint the entire Nighthawk coaster BLACK.
  16. Yeah I must say Carowinds is in desperate need of modern flats. Id say HUSS giant frissbee would be good. But I've always been biased for HUSS giant frissbees. I think something really cool the could do is build an intamin prefab woodie. WE NEED MORE OF THOSE in the world!!!!!! They're so good but we just keep getting the not as good GCIs. Come on industry more Gravity Groups and Intamin Prefabs please!
  17. UGHHHH I have a problem. The thing is with my trip to SFA I live about 5 hours from SFA youd think i'd of been there by now I'm 16. The trip is planned out like this me and my friend with me driving drive to my sisters house in fredericksburg and her and her boyfriend drive us the rest of the way to the park. Now that she told her boyfriend he doesnt wanna go to SFA cause his friends at work said it's a $%#@hole. He's never been but because of them he thinks we should go to Kings Dominion. I've been to Kings Dominion 4 times the only achievable credits without a little kid with me left are Dominator and Flight of Fear. I'd rather ride Superman It looks like a load of awesome. I'd rather go to the park that has a cheaper admission ticket and a brand new experience for me. Anyway you think I could convince my sisters boyfriend otherwise? I really don't want to go to Kings Dominion again already.....
  18. I'm going to SFA 7/17. Can't wait hopefully the park will be empty. I hope to the dear lord that two face is fixed by then. Does anybody know the story behind why Two Face is closed?
  19. ^Ride stealthborg assimihawk anyway. It really is fun and its layout is slightly different from Batwing and X-Fireflighthawk. In other news according to Screamscape(i know i know) Flying Super Saturator is out Head Spin is in. I have no problem with it seeing as I enjoyed the boomerang at SFFT. I hope they try those new trains with just lapbars and give it a nice paintjob and a new name...........but thats asking a bit much of Cedar Fair.... EDIT: If this is true I would like to dub Carowinds: The relocated ride capital of the world! Coming Soon..........Hypersonic!(jk jk)
  20. Ugh come on Cedar Fair! Why do the other parks get awesome new coasters before Carowinds? wheres our GCI woodie and B&M hyper?
  21. I haven't been to Carowinds since 2004. Unless somebody gives me a free ticket I'm not necessarily rushing to go back. I love Carowinds it's the closest amusement park to where I live(...........about 2 hours away). I still need the Vortex and Runaway Reptar credits but I can live without those. Hurler is my worst roller coaster I've ever ridden. I'd say it's tied with Rattler at SFFT gosh they are both loads of suck. But I didn't ride Hurler in the front in 04 i think it might of been more towards the back which could explain my horrible pain inducing ride. But as far as I'm concerned I'm not gonna go back till they add a major new coaster. I have many other parks on my "to do" list. Sorry but Flyers, the dutchman ride, a new family slide, a new pool, and a new wave pool aren't gonna make me rush back soon. I think the one thing the park needs to balance out it's collection is a hyper. The highest coaster is 115 feet. That's kinda lame in my opinion. Also a GCI/Intamin pre fab woodie would be really cool.
  22. Astroworld! I passed it on Sunday! I'm looking foward to riding Grass: The Ride!
  23. Hurler at Carowinds-I hurt for 3 DAYS after it it was so PAINFUL. Rattler at SFFT-OMG you can't describe the SUCK this coaster is. The drop was fun but after that the PAIN comes and then the 7 year bumpy helix. UGH it was so bad......
  24. Hey im going to Six Flags America sometime this month. It was either SFA or KD and ive been to KD multiple times and SFA 0. Also the $25 ticket helped. This will be my second Six Flags after SFFT(believe me im not expecting it to be close to the quality of that park). I'm hoping to GOD two face will somehow REPOPEN by then so I can walk out with all 8 credits like I did at SFFT. But I doubt it......Any advice for a first time to SFA?
