Ok so I had this trip report almost done when the page refreshed blank as a slate. anyways I'm only going to post a few pictures and my reviews of the ride for the Columbus Day visit.
First ride of the day DEMON (walk on most of the day line built up by the end)
ok so first ride in months for me and it seemed smoother on the loops, of course the horrible transition into the corkscrew isn't any better but it's nullified by sticking your head forward. Plain fun entry level with a theme that holds up better than any other in the park (batmans close). I'm going to try 2 separate out of ten ratings one for my personal feelings on the ride experience and it's ranking as a quality attraction. Personal enjoyment 7/10 Value to the park 7/10
Moving on to X-Flight Personal enjoyment 9/10 Value to park 10/10 (15min)
Very fun visceral ride, as well as forceful in the hang-time and positive Gs. Consistent stacking for at least 20 seconds most of The day.
Taking the long walk across the maintenance road and railroad tracks to American Eagle Red side Personal enjoyment 10/10 Value to park 9/10 (20minute wait).
Now this is either standard procedure or Laziness, the red side of AE wasn't operating an hour after opening. However while in line the red side opened and the dumb GP didn't notice so we walked to the top of the stairs before meeting people. Fantastic ride through and though, in my opinion the best racing woodie in the US besides Lightning Racer. Great layout that's nice and varied non standard Unlike the Cedar fair racers.
After AE we walked to southwest territory's resident Woodie Viper Personal enjoyment 7/10 Value to park 8/10(40 minute BS)
The real problem that caused the wait to be this long was some biotch walked up the exit path with 6 of her kids kept calling one of only 2 operators over, holding up dispatches by minutes at a time.as for the ride Well it's certainly degraded a bit in the comfort level. The ride wasn't rough it just jerked around more than I can remember before which was fairly uncomfortable. Still fun all drops gave good pops into the air.
Next was the Raging Bull Personal enjoyment 10/10 Value to park 10/10 (40 minute deservedly so one Que house open)
SFGAMS signature ride since 1999, a crowd pleaser that while braked on the big airtime hill still gave a fantastic ride with surprising positive Gs in the figure eight.
That's part one for now...
