  1. This showed up in my memories today. Trip for my last rides on Georgia Cyclone. Who knew #NotAGiga could have been a thing 3 years ago.
  2. They have posted on all their socials they have an announcement coming Monday. Assume it will be their reopening date.
  3. I always love when websites insist on placing giant watermarks on photos. That said, it's good to see CP join the CF updated parking booths club. Kind of surprised it took them as long to join.
  4. ^ It should be noted that they were also the ones behind Bluegrass Boardwalk. While it was reported with the "Holiday World" name it was really Dan, Pat, Natalie, and a few other family members. Will's wife/kids were not apart of the group IIRC, and after the legal battle over the control of HW the Dan/Pat group went to Alabama. If it is Dan and Pat taking on IB I do worry about them spreading themselves really thin. They seem to really be hitting their stride at AA/SA after some early struggles there before the COVID-19 outbreak. They do now have a GM in place at AA that is the perfect fi
  5. Ehh they were basically going to gut the amusement park. Their original plan included reopening for 2013 with only a handful of rides and then : “Pending a successful 2013,” the application says, additional rides will be refurbished, including the large Ferris wheel; The Roller Skater, a junior steel coaster; Thrill Park Theatre, an indoor movie venue; and Thunder Run, a wooden coaster." That is from a news article in 2012. I think Ed Hart is the right guy for KK. I doubt we would have seen rides like Lightning Run or Storm Chaser with the Koch family, but I could be wrong. I am v
  6. Not every SF park is like that though. SFOG never seems to have issues with getting rides open on time. Obviously you had Deja Vu in 2001 and I think Hurricane Harbor opened like a week late back in 2014, but they always seem to get their rides p[en by their Memorial Day weekend goal every year. Their staff always seems to be good when I go. The only rides that seem down when I go are very rarely down all day, except for occasionally Acrophobia and there was a few day period when Goliath was down after a lightning strike. Even then It was down less than a week. Plus at this point they have ref
  7. I wonder if they are going to move HQ over by the two new rides. It is just kind of shoved into that corner.
  8. Isn't the story though that this ride was designed for Six Flags Dubai? None of those parks come close to the attendance that SFOT gets, so it wouldn't surprise me if it was in fact only designed with one boat.
  9. Lots of great additions. I usually a big fan of JRA's videos every yeah but this was so weird this year. Loved the end though SFOG's are spread out, but at least they are all now in their own defined areas. You've got SUF and JL:BFM in Metropolis Park, the DC Superfriends kids area, and all the Batman themed rides in Gotham City.
  10. That's good to hear. I feel like the past 3-4 years on all my visits I've only seen both trains run once. The only other rides in that time frame I recall running one was Blue Hawk early in the season where the second train wasn't even on the track yet and a few days before the RMCing of Cyclone where it would be a walk on with one train. Many of the days Mindbender was at one train it has 20-30 minute waits too. To the White Water addition: I've never been a water park guy. In fact since 2002 I've spent exactly two days as a guest in a water park (and those were in 2004 and 2006 on high s
  11. It was not on June 20th, which was my last visit. All of the other coasters were running two trains that day.
  12. SFOG has been flat depraved for years. I think my only real issue with this announcement (albeit it is minor) is I kinda wish the park's flat rides were a little spread out more. I'll still take this any day vs not getting new rides though. Can this please be a refurbishment of Mindbender so that it can go back to regularly running two trains again? Please ?
  13. One of the operators said it usually means it was launched too fast. The launch felt like normal. We just were really slowed by those brakes at the top and slowly rolled all the way back to the base of the hill where they released us and walked us back to the station. When I had got in line the ride went down for like 30 minutes or so then ran like 5 test cycles. My rollback was maybe the 8th or so cycle after it had reopened. The same operator said it had happened four times the day before.
  14. Visited the park last week for the first time since 2016. Great day as always. Some notes/pics: -Dragonflier is an excellent ride. After riding it and Freedom Flyer the past few years I really wish more parks would add these coasters. Fun for everyone! -Lightning Rod was running one train and had a ton of downtime. -Never been evacuated from a ride during normal operation. That changed that day. On my "first" Lightning Rod ride we did not clear the first hill and slowly rolled down. When I came back several hours later we came to a complete stop on the brakes before the turn back towards
