  1. Yeah--why would a drop tower even want a hotel room, and how could it possibly fit on even a king-size bed?
  2. And now that I think of my previous comments, it is quite asinine if someone actually planned a long-distance trip for this thing. I understand making a trip to So Cal with the 'hopes' of riding this on opening day, all while expecting it to not open because of last-minute delays. I'm just wondering if some of the comments on SFMM's FB are bogus - I mean really, you booked a hotel room for a drop tower? To be honest, I'm quite surprised it will be opening so quickly, especially based on the late start with construction. I was kind of following the progress on various blogs/FB updates, and they've come a long way in a short amount of time. Since I will wuss out on riding this thing, I'm just looking forward to the return of Superman. At which point everyone will start bitching because 'it doesn't go as high as it used to.'
  3. ^ Everything at SFMM comes standard with trims, so that'll never happen. They probably delayed it a week because they realized it was too intense for it's Californian audience. But all kidding aside, I feel for those who were planning on riding it on the 30th. BUT, who wants to go ride a low-capacity drop tower on opening weekend? And on a Saturday? I'd rather wait until the fall/off-season.
  4. ^^ Not me. But there might be drop tower enthusiasts out there crazy enough to do so. Maybe?
  5. ^^ Exactly! While I'm not surprised that there's a delay, I'm am surprised that they delayed it a full week, obviously to carry it over into the next weekend. Even though i'm just speculating, I wouldn't think they need a whole week to fix whatever's the problem (unless they're waiting on a part or something). If they were to delay it a day or two, people who made plans (flights/hotels/etc), could have possibly been able to ride it by just adding a day or two to their trip. Wait.. I was just using logic. And this is the SFMM thread. Never mind.
  6. Holy run-on sentence, Batman. I'm lost on the whole taco thing. What kind of tacos are we talking about?
  7. Looks like an awesome SF park... definitely on my list to go there in the future.
  8. We're already past the price increase for annual passes, so now the Deluxe passes are about $470 (they were about $380 last year); premiums are up to $650. If you plan on going this summer, and you don't want to pay extra to get in, you'll need a deluxe pass; the two so-cal passes are blocked until August (thankfully ) You can always buy a cheap pass and go on that day, then upgrade later; you just can't make payments on the price difference, only the original amount. I've had deluxe passes since 2005, and finally got a premium in 2011. Turns out, I didn't need the extra days and just used the free parking more than anything.
  9. ^^^ There's always a pretty good line when I go. I ride it because it for the nostalgia (favorite ride as a kid). But this is also CA, where people think SFMM has the best roller coasters on the planet.
  10. Thanks! As often as I go (twice a month), I've yet to see Star Tours less than 40 minutes or so (with fast pass times usually being hours later), and I've not seen Space at 40 minutes unless it's pretty slow - I usually do fast pass only for Space because the line is always an hour (or so it seems). I'm not drawing any conclusions, but I would definitely say that the new DCA has 'lightened the load' on Disneyland - for now at least.
  11. I'm really looking forward to riding RSR soon.. My Premium pass is still good until the middle of July, but I'm waiting for the So Cal passes to be blocked With so much hype about Cars Land/RSR, has Disneyland been pretty busy? I mean obviously it's summer, but has the new DCA lightened some of the crowds? (Just thinking optimistically)
  12. August 9th? Was that intended, or should it have opened by now? It does look insane. And damn you for having such an awesome park so close. Want to come out here and join me at SFMM?
  13. I'm a little bummed that DT will be removed - it was a fun and unique ride. But, I certainly enjoyed Wild Eagle, so I know the wing rider at CP will be a hit. Keeping with the subject, is this helping with a 2013 New Hotness trip?
  14. I'm WAY out of the loop, but where is this ride from originally? Nice report, by the way!
  15. ^ I know tagging was being discussed over in the SWSD thread, so I don't know if that's why you brought it up here.
  16. SFMM isn't on your top 10 list? #bullcrapitsthebestparkever Glad I looked at it - I was trying to figure out another theme park in the ID/UT/CO area and it's Silverwood..
  17. SFMM beat out all of the other Six Flags parks? And it still brought in that many guests? #cantbetrue
  18. Yay! Maine! I remember that beach.. and I remember darting back to the bus because of the parade. Fun times!
  19. ^ My sister has a SD zoo pass and gets me free tickets, so I thoroughly enjoy going when I can. She also has a SW pass, so I'm wondering if she'll ever get freebies, or if I have to buy a day and get a year. I'll get down there eventually, but right now, I have passes for SFMM, Disney, and Knott's, plus I already bought a Deluxe for Disney next year. I also need to let the 'newness' wear off..
  20. I'm an hour away from this coaster and I just can't get excited about riding it. While it looks like a really fun ride and is longer than I expected, it's the fact that SWSD has nothing else that would interest me, especially when the SD Zoo is so incredible. For those of you who have been on CA coasters, what would you compare it to? Or did someone on the last page say it's a baby version of Maverick? I'm just trying to justify the money I would spend to ride... a single coaster. I bet there's some good Mexican food in the area though, right? Too soon?
  21. Assuming it takes up to 2 minutes or so to dispatch a train, how long is the total ride cycle? If it's 2 minutes (I'm thinking it's less), and they were dispatching every 2, there's wasted time somewhere. Let's also assume that SFMM is filling up the single rider spots.. (probably not). When it comes down to it, the actual riders per hour is even lower.
  22. ^ Nice detail. Most people nowadays don't even know what a Flathead is! Glad to see it's being recognized by the imagineers.
