  1. ^ I tried it a week and a half ago for the first time after not going to the park in 6 years. It worked like a charm even after a bunch of people got in. We waited 5 minutes for Tatsu, then when we got off the queue was full. For the exit shortcut: When you walk into the park, you head straight , then you hang a right by the lockers and proceed up to Revolution by going past the carousel. Before the entrance to the actual ride, you will see the exit and flash pass entrance on the right. You take that path up to the station and right before you will see stairs on the right. Take these stairs, hang a right, and proceed up to Tatsu. Do this quickly and there should be no problem.
  2. When I was there last Thursday, there was no audio on the "ramp" side of X2 (at least in the very back).
  3. Yesterday, I finally got the chance to go to SFMM after only being there once 6 years ago. Last time I was only 9 years old so I had only rode Ninja, Revolution, Scream, Goliath, and Colossus. So naturally, I was just trying to get on all the major rides. My group (4 people) got there around 10:00 AM and parked in the first lot somewhat in front of the HH and Colossus. Thanks to the online tickets, we went to the gate and waited, there was a massive crowd of people. Gates opened at 10:31 AM, It took us a good 15 minutes to get in. I took TPR Member's advice and took the Revolution exit shortcut to Tatsu and it worked like a charm. we waited 10 minutes and when we came off the queue was full. We went to the back of the park after, hitting Apocalypse, GL:FF, and Batman. We then had lunch then hit Colossus and Goliath (Major wait). After Goliath we took a short car break, then we decided to brave the X2 line around 4:00 PM, After X2 we hit Viper (ouch) and Revolution (Major ouch). I had a fun day and can't wait to go back to try Riddler's, S:EFK, and LL:DOD! Observations: I thought the park was clean, and the employees were average, some were actually courteous and funny and seemed excited to be there. Batman had only one train for maintenance, and Riddler's did not operate until at least 2:00 PM if it ever did. I did not see it running once when we were back there all morning and early afternoon. LL:DOD construction was going on and it seems like they are getting ready to starting putting the pieces on the tower. Mini reviews (Order of riding): Tatsu (10 minute wait) 9/10 - WOW! this was the ride I was looking forward to the most and it did not dissapoint! I thought it used the terrain very well and the pretzel loop had crushing G's. I also like the fact that when you are going up the lift there is nothing there below you. With a 2 train operation, they were stacking for about 30 seconds to a minute. I could see how this line could go very slow. Apocalypse (1 train wait) 8.5/10 - My second GCI, the other once being Roar west. I thought this ride was fun and fast and what made it better was no wait and preshows! Green Lantern: First Flight (5 minute wait, single rider line) 3/10 - I wanted to love this ride, but what's fun about your shoulders getting thrown into those stupid restraints and everything else just hurting in general? I will probably never go on this again unless it had no wait. Just a terrible ride really. I got one flip at the end if anyone was wondering. It gets some points for being unique. Batman (35 minute wait) 8/10 - After waiting longer than I wanted to on this due to one train, I still loved the ride. Those trains are SO comfortable! It wasn't as forceful as some people make it out to be, but it was still very fun! Colossus (20 minute wait) 5/10 - I sat in the last row, it hurt like hell. Enough said. Goliath (1 hour, 30 minute wait) 7/10 - I have no clue why this line was so long but the line was starting at the Giant "I' , The wait was long, boring, but at least it was shaded. I still think the ride had a great drop and some memorable moments. 2 train operation and they were constantly getting the train unloaded and loaded in under the 1 minute countdown clock in the station. X2 (1 hour, 40 minute wait) 9.5/10 - The wait actually didn't seem that long, It started right after the actual entrance to the ride. The guy was handing out "boarding passes". They were telling you which side to go on and only letting a certain amount of people go at one time. Up at the station, they only allowed about 4 people in each stall, then they would let more in. We got sent to the left side of the station, I sat in the last row of the train, no audio. I actually really liked this ride and thought the first drop was brilliant and shows the use of the 4D technology, I was smiling the whole way through! The only thing I didn't like was that I was sitting on the outside seat and it was rough at times. 2 train operation, no stacking. No flames and it was windy. Still the most memorable of all the rides. Viper ( 5 minute wait) 6.5/10 - I sat in the "magic seat" and still there was some headbanging. I liked the ride, it had a great first drop and some cool inversions. A decent ride for no wait. Revolution (5 minute wait) 6/10- First off, I HATE THOSE OTSR's!!!! They ruin such a perfectly good ride by adding those stupid things and braking it unnecessarily. Anton, I'm so sorry. It gets points for having a great layout and being a Schwarzkopf.
  4. X2 was operating today with gusty winds, I rode it around 5:30 PM today. Mini trip report coming in the morning! And sorry, no pictures.
  5. I have heard a lot of people say how they did not like the "shakiness" of the cameras in Hunger Games. First, I did not really notice it at all. Second, It adds to the quality and action of the film in my opinion. It's not supposed to look like it's being filmed on a tripod, it's live action scenes! E1ticket5, I also loved seeing all the Capitol technology and whatnot. I loved the outfits and makeup of all the Capitol people too, some were pretty hilarious and outrageous. I thought the ending was rushed and some scenes could have been longer, but it was already a two and a half hour movie. Lastly, on the subject of kids killing kids, It's a FREAKING movie!!! Get over it, if you don't want to see kids being killed, then don't see. it doesn't take all but common sense to realize that. I don't see why people are complaining about it, If you are going to see a movie, you should have at least some clue of what's going to happen.
  6. I saw The Hunger Games today and give it a solid 4.5/5, I have never read the books if that makes a difference. I thought it had great actors and an engaging plot which leaves you set up for the next movie.
  7. I would still love to see a El-Loco up there, that would be awesome. The west coast needs one of those.
  8. Thank you everyone for the great information. The last time I have been to SFMM was 6 years ago and can't really remember much. But, I have been on Colossus, Scream, Goliath, Gold Rusher, Ninja, and Revolution so they really are not a priority. I really want to hit up the major rides (Tatsu, X2, etc). If I do end up going I will be probably take the Revolution shortcut up to Tatsu first and end up doing X2 in late afternoon. Can anyone give me more information on the exit shortcut?
  9. Hey guys, I know you hate these questions, but: What will the crowds be like on Thursday April 5, and Friday April 6? I know it will be spring break but what are the crowds usually like in terms of waits for rides, etc?
  10. From the SCBB Facebook page: "The new ride replacing the Hurricane is indeed a coaster. And is VERY "Boardwalkish". You're gonna love it!! -ds" To me, this just screams either a wild mouse, or a spinner.

  12. I have only been on one cruise, and that was RCCL's Monarch Of The Seas. We were staying in a Grand Suite and it was more than adequate for the 4 night cruise. The food was actually decent in the buffet and the main dining room was nice. Our waiter was very attentive and nice, anything we asked for we got. There was no slouch in service whatsoever throughout the whole crew. Compared to this Carnival trash, the Monarch Of The Seas seems more like a 5-Star resort now... Never will I ever be going on Carnival Cruise Lines.
  13. My neighbor just got a new Ferrari California Convertible! It looks amazing and everytime it leaves I can hear it! (not that i'm complaining)
  14. On topic: Thrill Shot is getting removed, possibly for that Strata Wooden Looping Aqua-Trax getting built?
  15. Along with what QueerRudie said, Delta's Boeing 777-200LR's go to Europe, Middle East, and Sydney. Just putting that out there.
  16. I'm not old enough to drive yet but I have been in my friends dad's 2012 Audi R8 and that thing is SICK!
  17. That was a good fight! I almost had you (we both had one punch to K.O. left)!
  18. Tatsu's pretzel loop! But no way can I see them getting another flyer. I really do hope it is a launcher!
  19. I just logged in and I have a wait time of 6 minutes? Not that I'm complaining!
  20. Haha, I was watching that last night and thought of this thread! I would never go on a Carnival cruise, everyone says they are awful!
  21. I read somewhere that the ship had technical problems the day before it struck the rock, something happened and the ship ended up there.
