  1. Wow, sad to see it being gutted like that. I too visited this park almost every summer when I was younger, and no slide has ever scared the crap out of me more than the Edge. Bombay was intense, but the Edge was just messed up. You got so much speed going down the straight away and helix that you were pretty much off the slide from the moment it dropped off to a few feet before hitting the bottom. For the last 2 years Wild Rivers teamed up with a sponsor that hosted an awesome event called Wet Electric at the park. This year it was the last operating day the park would ever be open, so it was
  2. Wow...just wow. I had no idea the park has gotten this bad. I really only went once outside of WCB and one night for Fright Fest last year, but that trip report seals the deal...not renewing my SP for 2011. I'll probably go once to check out Superman and GL, but that's it. And that's saying something when the pass is $60 and only going once, whereas I'm also a passholder to Disney and go there 2+ times a month at a tune of almost $400/yr
  3. This is a giant train wreck, but I want more!!! Proof you don't need amazing pictures to have a great TR!
  4. Got mine today! Just watched about half the DVD, great selection, and looks amazing in HD on my 61" 1080P DLP. If you have a HDTV, and you like coasters, you must buy this!!
  5. This past weekend was a lot of fun. It really felt like one of the bigger TPR trips I went on. Thanks to Robb, Elissa and the great people at CGA, and SFDK for putting this on. The highlight for me was the water challenge by far. As a member of "team poncho" as we're being called now, we should've known better, but who'd have thought being drenched with water in 50 degree weather would have been so much fun. Other highlights of the weekend were the private shows at SFDK, and the backstage tour at CGA. Definitely a memorable weekend!
  6. Pre-ordered mine. Can't wait to see what coasters in 1080p on my 61" HDTV look like
  7. Sorry to hear about your loss Mike, I just lost my father in January at the age of only 54...Losing a parent is never easy. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
  8. Please god, let SFMM (SFHH) get Deluge. That park is due for a new slide, and Deluge would fit perfectly in Flashback's old spot.
  9. 1. What are your initial thoughts? I'm in!! $40/year is very reasonable for all the perks we already get through TPR, so this just makes it that much better. 2. Can you think of anything else we could be offering? Not at the moment 3. Is this something that interests you? Definitely 4. Why would you NOT be interested in this? N/A 5. Any additional feedback you can give us based on the information you see here. Not at the moment, but it sounds like a great idea!
  10. I actually just liked seeing the first couple lifts without the effects on and all the work lights, once the coaster started moving it did get pretty blurry and pointless, but it was nice to see a video with the lights on that wasn't in night vision, like all the other videos I've seen on youtube.
  11. I was messing around on YouTube today, and stumbled across this video of Disneyland's Space Mtn running with the lights on. This is the new version after the big 50th refurb. Funny thing though, the audio was running just fine, so I don't think it was broken down. Maybe some sort of special event? Anyway, if you've ever wondered what Disneyland's Space Mtn looks like with the lights on, this is it.
  12. I was just there 2 weeks ago and I Never saw the episode you're referring to, but I remember going to Wild Rivers back when both slides were The Edge. It was easily the scariest water slide I've ever been on. The problem with The Edge was that you would pick up so much speed going through the helix that when it came time for the drop you pretty much got insane air, so much so that people would get hurt. One time I rode it I remember coming out of the helix and was in the air pretty much 3/4 of the way down the drop, and it hurt like hell when I landed. I also heard that some people would go
  13. quick TR from yesterday... The main point of yesterday was not going to the park for the rides, but for the KROQ concert with Anberlin and Metric, though did manage to get a few rides in. Got to the park around 12, and I knew I was in trouble when there were cars coming all the way down to the Old Road waiting to park. Not sure what was going on but it did take close to 30 min to finally get to the booths...not good. I wasn't shocked at all when I ended up in the BFE (gravel) lot and I decided even in the 90+ degree weather to walk all the way to the entrance, as it would have took a
  14. Not sure how many of you have heard about this, but Saturday, KROQ will be putting on a concert with Anberlin and Metric at the park. Is anyone here planning on going? According to the SF website, the show starts at 6 @ golden bear theatre. They will be handing out seating passes before hand on a first come first serve basis. Does anyone know what time they might be doing this? I don't really want to get to the park at opening and was hoping to just come up closer to when the concert starts.
  15. Man...no love for the Shiny's on here? Well that will be my first choice as they are my favorite band, but will probably go with Crystal Method for the following ride
