  1. After visiting Universal & SWO/BGT last week it's more like Dollar General vs Gucci....
  2. http://smartpermit.santaclaraca.gov/tm_bin/tmw_cmd.pl?tmw_cmd=StatusViewCase&shl_caseno=PLN2017-12971 Case Number: PLN2017-12971 Application Date: 11/16/2017 Description: Architectural Review of proposed new 210-foot tall steel roller coaster ride and new ride station building. Looks like the hyper is finally coming....
  3. California's Merry America, California's Great Amerimas! Looking forward to 2016!
  4. Work on the new Mass Effect at Action Theater is underway..... Entrance Everything all covered up in plastic tarp
  5. Awesome news! I did like this coaster despite the restraints and I'm happy I'll be able to ride it the way it was intended to be. Great job SFMM!
  6. Sweet! Looks like more trips to SFDK next year! Love the color scheme and theme and that drop/conversion! An RMC in my backyard now? Yes please!!
  7. Was at the park Saturday 6/20 with some friends who haven't been to the park in five years. Had a great time. Did Fast Lane as the park was busy as there was a special event. Flight Deck was still closed and the front entrance had steel barricade fencing. Tiki Twirl was also down, Firefall was running, and Gold Striker was fast, smooth and running great as ever. Noticed that the painted some of the supports white again after seeing it gray earlier in the month. Also the south parking lot has been repaved and redone with a few more entry/exits added to ease traffic flow. More work being done on the south parking lot, next to the drop off area. The gray paint that was on a section of the middle support in this pic is now white again.. South section of parking repaved and restripped back to vertical rows again, also additional entry/exits added to ease traffic flow. Flight Deck still closed. Steel barricades in front entrance of Flight Deck More shiny new white paint on a section of one of the supports on Vortex again.. Newly widened bus entrance with a curved entrance and new cement path Tiki Twirl Closed. Work on the south parking lot next to the drop off parking.
  8. Was at the park recently and a good portion of one of Vortex's lift hill supports has been painted gray... Let the speculation begin!
  9. Appears to have been a maintenance worker. My thoughts to those affected... http://abc7news.com/news/two-injured-at-roller-coaster-inside-santa-claras-great-america/781565/
  10. I was actually able to retake the survey tweaking some answers a bit and got more scenarios.
  11. So far (without breaking confidentiality of course) there are 4 different concepts.. All very interesting indeed...
  12. CGA has done an awesome job with Haunt this year, from the new upscale buffet, new awesome show Blades Of Horror, and the overall atmosphere (The flames in the reflection pool are freakin' awesome!) Kudos to CGA! Looking forward to the rest of Haunt!
  13. ^^No one's assuming the park will be in full park op mode in the winter, we're just stating what SCBB does. It's safe to say with the temperamental weather in NorCal and staffing it'll most likely be like HITP, I'm just glad our season is now longer...
  14. Did the Santa Cruz Boardwalk completely close during the winter? They have limited ride operation through the quieter months, IIRC. I rode Giant Dipper in November of 2011 once. SCBB has limited ride operation in Winter though the rides are closed for about a month in December, 12/2-12/25 this year. I do see SFDK will be open every weekend except for 2 weekends in Nov to prepare for HITP, though I see it is open in between those for Veteran's Day. We'll definitely see how it goes, as AngryGumball mentioned SFDK does shut down during bad weather. http://www.sixflags.com/discoverykingdom/info/parkInfo.aspx
  15. Holy Space Balls, that looks sick! Gotta leave it to RMC, they're making awesome coasters!
  16. NAMTAB West Coast Edition! Can't wait to experience it! Also glad to see a family coaster coming and finally some love to HH. With SFMM & now SFDK officially opening year round, 2014 will be a busy year.
  17. A show with killer ice skaters running over people and chopping them up with their skates could be terribly awesome! And fake blood squirting onto the front row, can call it the "Bloody Squirt Zone"
