Ok so I went to the park today this was my first time ever visiting sfa, and I was very surprised by it! There are a lot of people on here who hate on it, but I think it is a nice small park. The themeing is better than kings dominion but not as good as Busch.
Ok so I think my favorite coaster of the day was wild one. It was so incredibly smooth, so whatever they did to the track on that one they need to do it on roar-fast! I was surprised by the speed it generates and I really like that. I rode this twice, once during the day and there was a 15 minute line (or something) and then at the end of the day and it was a walk on.
Rajin Cajun was my second favorite (I'm dead serious about this one) just because of like how giggly it is. Like it's not intense at all, it's just a fun ride! Then when it starts spinning, it keeps spinning, and spinning, and spinning. Even though everyone doesn't like how the station and queue are open and stuff, I really liked that! I remember when it was at sfga, and had the facade, that was cool, but I think I like this better with the lil plants n stuff and the openess so you can see the coaster. I rode this once and it had a small line.
I really loved apocalypse's themeing more then the actual ride. I think the color scheme fits well where it is, and it stands out. The coaster is very smooth except for the bottom of the first drop, and coming directly out of the corkscrew, there was some head banging. But overall I have come to realize that I like b&m stand up coasters better than Togo stand ups. Both times I rode this they were walk ons. The second time only 4 people were riding in the entire train.
Ok wtf is mind eraser doing all the way in the back of the park in the middle of a Wild West village? Like wtf. Six flags better get it's ish together cause that's just dumb looking. I haven't ridden a slc since like 2009 at gardaland (where it almost knocked my tooth out) and mind eraser was pretty rough in some spots and I've noticed that's it's because the seats shake a lot. It's not even the cars it's just that however the seats are attached to the actual car that has the wheels is just like loose or something. It's wack. But seriously, the name and theme (or no theme) is SO OUT OF PLACE it's just kind like blah I rode it twice during the day and both were walk ons.
Roar holy moly this was the first coaster I went on and people are all like "ooh they retracked it it's smooth now" no. Uh uh. Nope. Holy wow idk if millennium flyer trains would help, or if like a complete retracking by like rmc (not iron horse or whatever) would help, but something about this coaster needs to get fixed. I love the layout though. This was my first twister coaster and I like it, it was just rough. Now IK some people like that, but can we make it so that at least the people who don't like that can enjoy it? I rode twice and both were walk ons.
I really liked jokers jinx because of not having the mcbb. After going though the hoops the ride is so intense and it goes so fast and it's wonderful. I've been on fof bit this is better. I rode this twice, first they had to send out two test trains back to back for some reason so it was like a 5 min wait, then later it was literally a walk on. Like I walked up and got on.
Superman. Superman is just kinda like blah cause like I really don't like prolonged helixes and so this ride was just kinda eh. I really hate the restraints. They hurt my groin and there is no need for those stupid ankle bracelets things. My fav part of this ride was the beginning and the end. So from the first drop to the bottom of the second hill and then the bunny hops. I think this ride could be much more thrilling if it didn't have the first helix and had like a Bizzaro first turn where it's like overbanked and low to the ground. Then maybe it could like double back or something with more hills, then it could go on to the second helix. But right now as it is it's just kinda eh. I did ride it twice though. Both with -5 min lines.
Before I go on to batwing I would just love to say how funny I think it is that the coasters are set up in a pattern where everyone goes from jokers jinx, to superman, to batwing, to superman, to joker. I swear I rode all those coasters with the exact same people time.
I've never ridden a flying coaster before, and this thing is scary like WOW. I had no idea what to expect out of this. It was really fun, but 1 they seriously need to open the second station, and get that second train going, cause they dispatch trains so slowly. I really liked going down head first over the loop. I rode twice once in the back and once in the second row with 15 min lines.
People are saying things about the giant space in between batwing and superman and I have comments about that
1 it's not that big yall r exaggerating.
2 y when they built batwing just smash it right up against superman?
3 they should either have a small path back to there and have like a mini go them city like at the front and fill it with flat rides 5-6
4 ORRRRR they could build like a premier launch coaster there. (Sky rocket from kennywood would fit perfectly in that footprint. Don't move it from there though)
Ok about the park I was really surprised at how themed it was. I thought six flags just plopped rides everywhere randomly. My favorite sections were marti gras, coyote creek, and Main Street. One thing about coyote creek, I feel that it would fit much better if they expanded that to have the borders between roar and apocalypse, so that roar can be Wild West themed, and then make shipwreck falls be part of it, along with that gladiator show (turn it into a Wild West show) (like wtf is a gladiator show dong there)
OMG SHIPWRECK FALLS OMG that was the biggest splash I have ever seen from a shoot the chute ride. Wow that was incredible. Busch gardens, take note. (I also liked the fast lift)
On the OTHER HAND, renegade rapids was weak. No wet. No spash. Is it something with the boats? Cause kd and bg both have good rapids rides.
Superman has so many birds/birds nests in its station.
There was a cute lil mardi gras show. It was funny.
I love all of the lil lawns everywhere. They looked so comfy.
They should take that back road behind wild one and bring it around to gothem.
Rodeo was a really fun flat ride. Lol.
Worst part of the trip? The country music playing in the coyote creek.
I do not like where the sky coater is.
It's 2 in the morning in exhausted I'm going to bed that was a fun park I really liked it and I would go again but we did 6 hours and 40 mins worth of driving. Aaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh.
I got an apocalypse t shirt yay.
OMG I wrote a lot.
Lol they were handing out fruit roll ups to everyone leaving the park like wtf lol. It was good tho.
