Made my first visit to SFSL this past weekend (April 17-18, 2010) and also swung by Worlds of Fun for opening weekend. Thought I would try out my new little camera. I usually don't take pictures as I hate to carry around my equipment and then find a locker, or, several trips to the car, or then something gets lost or broken, but this little dude slides nicely and securely in my pocket.
So without further blabbing:
Welcome to SFSL
Please pay toll, unless you have a pass w/parking.
First on my list, Evil Kenevil.
Love the station fly by's, and GCI woodies for that matter.
Here comes my ride...yeah!
There was a Cardinals game in town on this particular day, and upon my arrival at park opening at 10:30 there was no waiting to get in, and no waiting in the ride lines. It stayed this way until noon. There was a cheer comp going on for some middle schoolers, which was about the only crowd on this really nice cool day. I got an amazing 6 continuous rides on the Kenevil before I had to get off due to others wanting to ride. (how dare them) Too bad Cedar Fair won't let you re-ride.
Now, on to the Mr. Freeze.
Entrance, I had no idea the trip to get to the ride would require a snack break. A common theme I encountered on many rides at this park.
Looks similar to the one at SFOT, I like the two tone paint better at the one at SFOT though.
Theme-ing is not as nice as SFOT, but the ride is just as good!
Might as well Ride the Tony Hawk (for credit reasons of course) This was a fun little ride, rode with a dad and his son who was scared out of his mind. No trim braking either, made it nice
Closed for repairs It did re-open later) This is probably one of the best out and back traditional woodies I've been on in a while.
Time for "The Boss"
There goes the boss
I love the helix on this one, not over intense, a really good portion of the ride
I see you batman, I'll tackle you later.
And then there was this thing. Yes, I rode the NINJA to get the credit, but wished I wouldn't have. I still have a bruise from it.
Clean up on Train 2. Somone actually got sick on this ultra intense mine train ride...
Batman!!!! Love the B&M's. And this was no exception.
Back to The Boss
Checking in on Superman...
That doesn't look good at all. It never re-opened after going down around noon and I never got to ride it
One last trip on the Eveil Knevil (second on my favorite list next to Prowler) Thought I would snap this interesting picture, automated chain oiling. Not sure why I took the pic, just thought it was neat.
This is a really nice park, though it will quickly let you know how out of shape you are with all the line queue walking and hills, I would recommend everyone come here at least once. I mean they have everything here including:
A Dick Clark production
and old coaster cars
wonder where those came from...
ok, we don't have to wonder, but I will let you guess
I'd come back for sure. Next stop on my weekend tour, Worlds of Fun.
Being as this is my first post, if I broke any rules, let me know. Tried to read them all.
Superman was powerless, I'll check back on it later
