  1. ^^ That's funny because I've never had a problem with leg banging on X/X2. The problems I've had were always with headbanging and having my shoulders bounce off the restraints. Most of this has happened to me in the outside seats though. When I've sat on the inside I've hardly ever had any problems and even when there was some roughness it was reduced to the point that it wasn't painful which is why I plan to sit on the inside from now on.
  2. The parks website now says "Ninja is temporarily closed". They no longer list an approximate time frame for it to reopen like they did when the website said Ninja would reopen in "late April". Hopefully this is just a short delay.
  3. It should be deserted. Every time I've been there on a school day I have had walk ons or one cycle waits on every ride except for a couple visits when there was a special event I didn't know about. There are no special events tomorrow so you shouldn't have anything to worry about. Have a great time.
  4. The outside seats on X2 can be very rough, but I've found the inside seats to be much smoother and not painful most of the time. I can be luck of the draw though too. I've had smooth, non-painful rides on the outside sometimes too. I do plan to sit on the inside from now on since it is very rare for me to have any problems on the inside seats. As long as I don't have any headbanging I can ride X2 multiple times in a row. I have rode it 2-4 times in a row (with no line) many times. On Season Pass Appreciation Day last September I rode it 10 times in one hour with no issues then rode it 4 times in a row later that night with no issues again. I don't have any trouble riding Tatsu multiple times either. I have rode Tatsu 3-5 times in a row, on many visits, with no line, and didn't have any problems on it either.
  5. ^ Thanks for the reply. I have tried that and it still happens every so often. It seems almost random. The problem has started and stopped on about 4-5 occasions since the upgrade whether the history/cache/cookies have been cleared or not.
  6. I prefer the front on Xcelerator too but I have always got very good airtime on the tophat in car 5 too.
  7. Sometimes when I click on the "first unread post" button it skips over some of my unread posts, sometimes entire pages, and starts me off later in the thread. I also had this problem near the time the upgrade was made. It stopped happening for a while and started again in the last couple weeks.
  8. ^^ I agree with you about the outside seat on X2. I used to have no problems riding in any seat but recently I have found the outside to be very rough and sometimes painful due to headbanging. Last time I went to the park I sat in the inside both times I rode it and had no problems. I plan to sit on the inside from now on. ^ I agree about the second raven turn being the worst part too. That is where I've had the most problems with headbanging.
  9. Welcome to the site. I've had similar problems to what you described on X2 recently. I do still like it but it is not my #1 coaster anymore like it had been for a long time. Glad you had a great time. The park has been almost completely deserted like that just about every time I've been there on a school day. You picked a perfect day for your first visit. Sorry you skipped a few rides though. I'd want to try every coaster if I went to a park I've never been to before.
  10. ^ I agree with your first post about the Ninja trains. I was very happy that the Viper hair gel trains were gone on my last visit and now they have put ads on Ninja. While I understand the reasons which have been given for why they did this and agree that it doesn't detract from the ride experience, I also think that ads on coaster trains look really cheesy and it is somewhat sad that the park is in a position that they feel this is neccessary. I hope Ninja reopens soon. About a month ago their website said it would reopen on April 12th. Now it says "late April" but it was still closed yesterday.
  11. ^ At SFMM on 4/16 I saw signs inside the park but nothing actually on any of the rides.
  12. ^^ Regarding #6, I would if I could. Would anybody like to donate some $$$ so I can increase my credit count?
  13. ^^ So you think the number of accidents on Intamin rides is pointless information when this whole topic is about another accident on an Intamin ride? I think it's relevant.
  14. ^^ Edit. The message I was responding to was edited while I was typing my response. ^ My thoughts exactly. This is why I was curious about the ratio.
  15. ^ Very true. I would be interested in finding out how many total accidents B&M and Intamin have each had compared to the total number of rides they each have operating. I'm no expert, but Intamin would have a higher accident/ride ratio wouldn't they?
