  1. ^This. Unfortunately, SFSTL seems to be of less importance to SF corporate than other parks in the chain.
  2. SFOT is pushing back Aquaman Power Wave until 2022 as well, even though the ride was basically complete except for the queue and loading station. The reason for this, however, seems perfectly understandable. The new park management has made what, in my opinion, is a wise decision. They're adding the turntable loading station as well as an extra ride vehicle to increase capacity. This involves removing that section of track along with the footers and replacing them with the turntable itself. The loading station also has to be re-designed to accommodate the turntable apparatus. None of this woul
  3. Any word on Catwoman Whip? Specifically, when will they begin construction?
  4. Looks like Aquaman might be getting that turntable and extra car after all!
  5. That's interesting, signage and audio announcements in the park still indicate 2021.
  6. Here are some pics from the Texas Thrillseekers nighttime Cliff Top Tour!!
  7. Here are some pics of the Texas Thrillseekers Behind The Scenes tour of Poltergeist!
  8. Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Coaster at SFFT! That's me in the front seat!
  9. This past Saturday- October 24th, The Texas Thrillseekers were invited on a behind the scenes tour of Superman: Krypton Coaster by park President Jeffrey Siebert! Here are a few photos from that tour.
  10. Here are a few shots of me riding Wave Breaker: The Rescue Coaster with my friend Mike. NOTE: All photos are by Nick Carlos, TTS staff photographer. Wave Breaker is good Intamin family style launched coaster! Those trains look cool! Over the water! Mike's arms weren't long enough to reach the hand grips! lol
  11. Texas Thrillseekers were invited to a special Orca trainer VIP presentation. [youtu_be] [/youtu_be]
  12. Here are some photos of the Texas Thrillseekers (TTS) ERT on Texas Stingray during our recent SWSA event. I'm in all of them, I'm the guy with dark hair and glasses. Texas Stingray is possibly the best GCI I've ever been on. The ride is fast and furious with great pacing on all the elements! At the end of the day, Ray Gonzales and the staff at SWSA surprised us with gifts of Texas Stingray wood! It's leftover wood from Texas Stingray made into souvenirs! NOTE: On-ride photos are by TTS staff photographer Nick Carlos. Trains look nice! This would be me! The dispatches were great! E
  13. ^ Catwoman Whip will be the park's "New For 2021" attraction, so no real surprise as to the lack of construction. Most SF parks are following this same path. Here at Over Texas, Aquaman: Power Wave is very nearly complete save for the queue and splash pool. But it seems that all work on the ride has stopped and won't resume until possibly next year. The only SF park that seems to have completed it's "New For 2020" attraction is Fiesta Texas. Their Dare Devil Dive ride is already operating.
  14. Pics from yesterday! DC themed masks now available! The Joker baby!! Let's see, Joker, Batman, Flash, Superman, Wonder Woman and Justice League!! Awesome!! New Titan shirts! I bought this one!
  15. Some pics I took today. Hand sanitizer stands like these all over the park. A few mask selections were available. I chose this one. It appears that some work had been done on Aquaman. That building off to the left houses the electrical system. The concrete section is part of the water filtration system. Joker was running today. Riddler was down. Catwoman was only loading every other seat. Harley was running at reduced capacity. Aquaman seen from the Oil Derrick. The power building is plainly visable to the right of tower 1. Globe Life Field i
  16. Screamscape is saying that Catwoman Whip, which had been intended for SFSTL, is being put on what they call "long term hold". It seems that other SF parks are having their "New For 2020" attractions put on hold as well. But it does appear that SFFT's Dare Devil Dive ride has resumed construction and is nearing completion. However, there has been no word on the fate of SFOT's Aquaman: Power Wave. The new Mach Rides Power Splash, which replaces the old Hopkins Chute The Chutes ride, was far along in it's construction when the park closed down.
  17. They claim they're going to enforce masks. Reservation needed to enter the park.
  18. So, when do we start sending the dead bodies to processing plants to be turned into "Soylent Green". That certainly seems to be the direction we're headed in.
  19. No, the direction of the splash would be away from Pandy based on the position of the 2nd tower. OTOH, the train tracks run adjacent to the splash pool and well within range of the wave coming from the front as the ride vehicle hits the water. I'm guessing they're going to time the dispatches so as not to accidentally splash the train. Otherwise they're going to have one helluva mad train conductor on their hands.
  20. New pics from the park. Hand sanitizer stands popping up around the park amid Coronavirus concerns. New park map and Aquaman update. New 2020 park map! It's interesting to note that Gold River no longer appears on the map. Aquaman coming along. New location for the 3-point Challenge. Coronavirus response? Trolls are back in the Runaway Mountain station. Surfer Yeti inside the ride. Complete with surfboard. Work progresses on the new indoor air-conditioned area at JB's.
  21. ^ Yes, you go backwards up Tower 2 before heading back down into the splash pool-at 63mph!! Imagine Mr. Freeze with water!
