  1. KI is probably the best CF park for FL+, you never wait more than 5-10 minutes and the lines drop you right into the stations. We had a similar experience back in October, and that was with the park still doing social distancing on the coasters.
  2. Getting the Axis coaster would certainly fit with the park's history of getting first-of-it's-kind coasters. I think the Axis coaster is a very cool concept and would love to see it at SFFT!
  3. I totally agree, I wonder if it's a cost issue or if Intamin just stopped building them? I know that Colossos had some issues (it's back open now), but El Toro/Balder/T Express have been universally praised as some of the best woodies on the planet. I'd love to see an Intamin prefab at SFFT, but I don't know how realistic that is.
  4. Had a great visit to the park on Friday June 11. It was my first time back since 2016 and my kids' first ever visit to the park. Got to the park at about 8:20am and the parking lot opened at 8:30am, so we got a nice up front spot. They started letting people into the park around 8:50am, so we grabbed our FL+ wristbands and headed to MF, where we got on the 2nd train of the day. My kids absolutely loved the ride and said it was their favorite coaster ever, but that comment would be short lived. We hustled back to Maverick and got two rides in during the early entry. My plan was to hit SV
  5. Agreed, I loved Orion but it definitely left me wanting more. You come out of that helix at the end into a great airtime hill and then right into the brake run. It would've been great to have 2 or 3 of those final airtime hills before the brake run. As for Mystic Timbers, you could make an argument for it being the best coaster in the park. It has so much airtime and is just relentless from start to finish. It's not often that a coaster surprises me like that, but it easily surpassed any expectations I had.
  6. FL+ at KI is so easy to use and I've never waited more than 10 minutes having it. Really wish CP would get their act together and make it as convenient as it is at KI.
  7. JDC looks incredible and kudos to SF for following through with it during the pandemic. I just hope that the rumors are true that SFMM will be getting one next year. They've already started demo on Tidal Wave, so I'm taking that as a good sign!
  8. Agreed, I would wait and see how the crowds are before making a decision on FL+. I went to KI on a weekday in early June a few years ago and the coasters were mostly walk-ons. It could be different this year due to pent up demand, but I'd still wait to make a decision until you see the lines at the park.
  9. I don't think anyone will miss Tidal Wave, especially since it hasn't operated in years. A West Coast version of the Jersey Devil coaster is just what this park needs and will be a huge hit with the GP, most of whom have probably never ridden a raptor-style coaster.
  10. I would assume most people purchase the free refill drink cup or get it for free with their membership. I haven't paid for soft drinks at a SF in years.
  11. That's great news, hopefully Tatsu is next on the list to be painted!
  12. Sand Serpent was definitely a one and done for us as well. Especially since it broke down and left us baking in the hot August sun for about 15-20 minutes. The park did give us single-use QQ's for the breakdown, which enabled us to get another ride on Cobra's Curse with no waiting (it was still fairly new and had an hour wait).
  13. I honestly think Pantheon could be the best new ride of 2022. We had a trip to BGW planned for last summer that got canceled, so I’m hoping to make it out there this year once it opens. BGW is one of my favorite parks and it’s been too long since my last visit.
  14. Bert nailed it here, you definitely want to take advantage of the preview night. The park tends to empty out later in the evening with all the families, so the lines really die down the last 2 hours or so. The last time I visited, I was able to knock out 3-4 rides each on Skyrush, Storm Runner, and Fahrenheit during the preview period. Laff Track tends to be one of the longer lines in the park due to the lower capacity and its wide appeal, so that's another one you may want to ride during the preview period or first thing in the morning.
  15. I'm really interested to see how the Spiderman ride turns out. People will definitely compare it to the Spiderman ride at IOA, which is still one of the best dark rides in the world, so the stakes are pretty big here. I like the retheming of the area though and it makes a lot more sense with the Guardians ride now. Bug's Life was never a great IP and I don't think anyone will miss it.
  16. I am fairly similar when I visit the parks. When I'm with friends and family, it's more about enjoying the park at a leisurely pace than riding as many rides as I can. I'll still get there before park opening, but I'll let who I'm with dictate how the day goes. But when I visit a park by myself, especially when I've traveled to the park, it's all about quantity and squeezing in as many rides as possible. The most rides I've ever gotten in a single day was 52 at SF Great America about 4-5 years ago when they still allowed double-rides with the Platinum Flash Pass. My CP record is 40 rides
  17. Yeah, I think Harley Quinn is gone. I never got a chance to ride it myself, but from all accounts it was a VERY underwhelming ride. Plus it had extensive downtime and I heard the noise was pretty much unbearable. I don't think anyone will miss it.
  18. Glad that you enjoyed it and that the food/service was as good as I remembered. I’m hoping to to get out to BGW once Pantheon opens and I’ll definitely be eating there!
  19. Agreed, just ride Comet or Lightning Racer more, they’re much better rides than Wildcat. And don’t forget about Laff Track, the indoor queue is a blast and it’s a super fun ride.
  20. It kills me how many people are always looking for something for free. Six Flags is not at fault here and doesn’t owe these people anything.
  21. Every time I go to Williamsburg, I make an effort to eat at Food for Thought. It’s the #1 rated restaurant on Yelp for a reason. The prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food and the service is fantastic. The pot roast melts in your mouth, the ribs are so tender that the meat falls off the bone, and they have a great take on Pad Thai. I’ve never had anything there that I didn’t absolutely love. If your family are big meat eaters, Old City BBQ is another one of our favorites. Their brisket is some of the best I’ve had outside of Texas.
  22. Fiesta Texas is truly the underrated gem in the Six Flags portfolio. The setting in the quarry is just amazing and I love the interaction with several of the coasters. We did a Holiday in the Park Texas trip in 2019 to hit up both SFOT and SFFT. My youngest had just barely hit 54 inches, so it was fun having her ride all of the big rides for the first time. Her favorite on the whole trip was definitely Superman, I think we rode it 3 or 4 times that day (thanks to Flash Pass). Anyone who hasn't been to SFFT should absolutely put it their list of parks to visit.
  23. Great video on the 100th anniversary of Lagoon's Roller Coaster:
  24. Looks like DW will be open Mon-Wed-Fri-Sat-Sun throughout April, so I would go on a Monday or Wednesday in mid to late April. Spring breaks should be over by then and no schools will be out yet.
  25. I love the Six Flags parks in Texas. We did a trip two years ago and hit up both parks for Holiday in the Park. The original RMCs are still two of my favorites (I-Rat is just outside my top 10) and each park has a lot to offer. Thanks for your report, looking forward to your thoughts on Fiesta Texas.
