  1. Flume 1 has been SBNO for a while now. No word yet on what the park intends to do. What is known is that the ride has been stripped down, conveyor belts and drive motors removed from lift hills ect.
  2. To be fair, the only info currently available with regards to Gold River is purely speculative. Info isn't automatically false simply because it's been posted on TTS.
  3. ^ That's correct. Park President Jeffrey Siebert invited us on the Tour. It's not something that's available to the general public.
  4. Here are a few pics I took on my recent visit to SFFT. Most are from the Cliff Top Tour.
  5. Park President Jeffrey Siebert invited the Texas Thrillseekers on a special night time Cliff Top Tour of Fiesta Texas. There were over 100 TTS members in attendance- myself included. This video contains the entire tour. [youtu_be] [/youtu_be]
  6. Behind the scenes construction tour of Stingray. [youtu_be] [/youtu_be]
  7. Old parts from those rides aren’t going to fix the issues we have. We could maybe repurpose some things like boats. But that isn’t likely as the ones in Texas were prob shot. But the refurb is about other issues not things fixable but salvaging from other end of life rides. And the cost of removing it is vastly less expensive than the refurbishment cost. Trust me I know the numbers. Come to think of it, I did see one of the old boats strapped to a trailer with it's undercarrage disassembled. It looked as if they were planning to transport it somewhere. But, of course, I have no
  8. That's interesting about Tidal Wave. Keep in mind the cost of removing it alone would be prohibitive, let alone getting the area ready for some type of new ride to go in. The removal of Aquaman Splashdown here at SFOT was a massive undertaking, it took months for the ride to be completely torn down. They've only just now finished moving the last of the ride debris out of the park. That plus getting the trees out of the way so construction can begin on the new Aquaman: Power Wave. My guess would be some type of refurbishment using parts salvaged from our old ride plus the one at SFOG.
  9. La Vibora should be first, it's a low capacity ride with long wait times.
  10. Anyone planning to attend Fright Fest this year? There are going to be 3 new haunted houses this year- Art Of Torture, Alien Incubator and Curse Of Ra. Plus upgraded Scare Zones with complete interaction. Also, existing haunted houses such as Piggy's Blood Shed and Hell Block 6 are getting revamped with new set pieces. And last, but not least, there's a brand new Halloween Awakening show this year.
  11. Since it's the only one of it's kind in North America people will be coming from all over to give it a try.
  12. Aquaman: Power Wave is a great name for what will be the first Mack Power Splash in North America! Year-round operations was something I had been expecting since SFFT starting doing it. Bonzai Pipeline is a nice bonus! Always good to have something new and fun added to the water park!
  13. I'm thinking this may end up being a fantastic addition. Congratulations!
  14. Congratulations!! Down here at SFOT we've been enjoying Riddler Revenge for years now! Trust me, your going to love this!
  15. Looks like I'll be heading back down to San Antonio next year! Can't wait to try this baby out! Congrats!
  16. I'm on board with this. MM can't build a new coaster every year. I'm glad they're taking a year off and investing money where it needs to be invested!
