  2. i want to go really bad but im 17. what if my parents sign a paper saying i can go?
  3. how can you even compare these 2 coasters.there basiclly two diffrent types of coasters the only thing they have in commen is the word "HYPER".
  4. I couldnt have said it any better myself Jahan. The only thing keeping me around tragic mountain is the love for coasters and the friends you make there kinda like a second family. ~CHRIS-O
  5. lines will not be that long on friday. just be prepared that some rides might be running one train.so try to hit x,goliath,riddler and batman those are the ones that get long later in the day.

  9. yes lets call it the TPR network im sure if robb & elissa had the money there would be a chanel like that. it would run of there all there dvd's over and over again.
  10. when its snowing in the east and all the parks are closed. i can still go to sfmm kbf & disneyland while everyone on the east coast is snowed in.i would have to go with the wild west on this one. imo the best rides in the west are x,ghostrider,goliath,riddlers,scream,silver bullet,xcelerator,colossus,medusa,batman,deja vue,viper,roar,v2,desperado,speed,titan,texas giant,superman krypton coster. the list goes on and on
  11. not all boomerang's suck deja vue is a great example that ride kicks butt.
  12. i think GOLIATH at sfmm has the best.you fell some G's at the bottom of it.
  13. that sucks that ride was so scary the poles would sway and it would make a loud noise right before it shot you up. rip thrill shot on another note when its torn down what will take its spot? i think a drop tower of some sort.
  14. name the previous TWO names of acme atom smasher and grinder gearworks?i have 3 for gearworks Electric Rainbow,Gordon Gearworks & Turbo.for atom smasher i have 2 Subway & himalaya name the two former locations of the CURRENT circus wheel as well as its previous names? Baile de las Flores & the jolly roger when it was the jolly roger it was were goliath's entrance is at when it was the Baile de las Flores i think it was next to viper what did Dive Devil replace?it was a theater for shows no it was the jolly roger and Baile de las Flores
  15. what was circus wheel originaly? how fast do the cars at granny grand prix go? nam the Eight separate themed areas with that have there own distinctive attractions? name three past shows at sfmm? name the coasters that were in the park in the year 1980? what is the largest investment that sfmm has ever put in?
  16. colossus can run 3 trains on both sides so in total 6 if they run anymore the trains will start to block.meaning if there is a train in between two breaks and other train trys to enter that segent of track it will be stopped at that break.and has to be reset by a ride operator. i should know i worked at that ride for 7 months.
  17. how many trains maximum can colossus run? Theoretical- maximum # of Collossus trains, 10 (2 tracks, station, lift, p-lot brake block, end brake block, brakes waiting to enter station). Funny thing is the reason given for replacing the camel hump with a brake run was to increase capacity yet I've never seen a full compliment of trains on the tracks since they butchered the thing. I wish you all could have ridden her in her glory days w/ a full compliment of trains, the camel hump, and trains actually racing - what a beautiful coaster she used to be!
  18. this coaster looks pretty bad http://www.rcdb.com/ig1218.htm?picture=20
  19. Which ride in the park uses the greatest amount of power? superman the escape Where is the one place left in the park you can still see the Trolls? the exit of sandblasters Which ride was used for Olympic Training at one point? sarajevo bobsled How many Horsepower is the moter on Swashbuckler... And for a bonus, how much power does the park use to run the ride and the lighting system? i would guess between 45-55 horse power.i have no clue about how much it would cost to power it. What used to be house in the current playpass processing center? which one are you talking about the one near the main gate or the one near flashback? i got one how many trains maximum can colossus run with both sides open?
