  1. Opening Day photos and trip report here. Park was surprisingly busy for a cool opening day, but the weather was absolutely perfect. The Joker still has a ways to completion. They were working on electrical boxes and the track when I took some pics. I tried out Galactic Attack and wasn't impressed. I think there was some sort of bug on our headsets when we rode - I could see everything through the camera until we got to the top of the lift at which point the background just turned black with some aliens floating here and there. Weird. What am I supposed to see? Texas Giant has a sign stating reservations are needed for reduced capacity. I'm guessing they're still rehabbing some trains - can anyone confirm? Entry fountain water was dyed so blue it was comedic.
  2. Seems like the off-season is ever shortening for SFoT. Wonder if they'll ever just go to year-round operation, a la SFMM?
  3. I took some progress pictures today (12/30). Doesn't look like anything significant since the last pics taken. I also planned on going to the park but the line of cars waiting to get into the park was insane. Snaked all the way to I-30, and overflow was getting crowded only 30 minutes into park opening. Nooo thank you. Needless to say we went to the nearby International Bowling Museum and was actually pleasantly surprised. Pretty high-quality exhibits!
  4. No. From that image of the top of Giant, the Batman Stunt Show theater was located off the image to the right of the Oil Derrick. isn't to the right where Superman Tower is? (and before converting to Superman, was Air Race). I don't recall there being a stadium there.. . but I'm getting old, so who knows if my memory is going Music Mill Amphitheater is basically between Shock Wave and Giant and houses concerts: http://guidetosfot.com/parkinfo/entertainment/musicmill/ The Batman Stunt Show was in the Texas Arena which is right next to Oil Derrick: http://guidetosfot.com/parkinfo/entertainment/texasarena/
  5. Why would SFOT add another B&M if it already has Batman? There's nothing wrong with another RMC in my opinion Because RMC rides are a lot more similar to each other than B&M rides. Getting another RMC would be like the parking adding another B&M invert.
  6. Why would they give JRS a RMC makeover when the park already has NTG? Plus it's a weird, skinny, small plot of land that really only another out-and-back would probably fit in.
  7. I've been sitting on a bunch of Titan footage not knowing what to do with it, so I slapped it together in this format. There's some nice shots of Titan at sunset!
  8. The only thing that fits in that long skinny plot of land would be some kind of out and back hypercoaster, and we already have Titan, so...
  9. Rode Justice League last week and noticed several issues with the ride. Lots of special effects either working less than perfect or not at all. For example, it didn't do the blue blast of gas at the beginning, the "smoke screen" was barely visible due to barely any smoke, missing audio, etc. Sad to see it degrade that much in a year. They were running every other train with VR on Shockwave. Didn't really improve the dispatch time though.
  10. Yeah it'd definitely have to be an upcharge. Honestly unless they add at least 4 seats or have an array of these things going, I can't see them turning that much of a profit compared to the cost (those robots aren't cheap). Interesting that they're finally doing something to Casa de las Banderas. Perhaps it could be a real Mexican restaurant again?!
  11. Visited the park today for some pictures of the new rides in action. Tried out Riddler Revenge and verified it's as tall and fun as it looks. Unfortunately it was miserably humid and not good picture weather (at least this morning) but nevertheless, here are the results: The Riddler Revenge Catwoman Whip Lines were pretty long. The park didn't seem that prepared as queue lines were spilling out way past the entrance when I left. Still, lots of people seem very pleased with the rides. Can't wait to see them at night!
  12. It does appear they literally got the entire structure up in a day, just because of how it goes together:
  13. So I went to the park today. I'm certainly glad I didn't intend on riding anything because the crowds were insane. It probably took at least half an hour to get into the parking lot. Streets were backed up all the way to the highway. I got some construction shots of Riddler Revenge both from Oil Derrick and the ground. Here's the view as you drive in: I put the rest of the photos AND photos of the insane crowds here: http://guidetosfot.com/2016/04/perfect-storm-weekend/ I'd never thought the Flash Pass line would need a Flash Pass! Yikes. I pity the poor souls visiting for Wrestlemania or whatever and thinking that's normal.
  14. No problem! Forgot to mention, the ordering form is broken on the website so I ended up emailing Mike Rigsbee to help me order the maps: mikerigsbee7@nc.rr.com (not sure if he's still there or what).
