  1. This layout looks a lot cooler than the other dive coasters, at least to me. I also really like the color scheme. Since the vest restraints have been improved so much I think they won't be a huge deal although of course everyone's gonna complain because they aren't using the normal B&M OTSRs


    I don’t think everyone’s going to complain that they aren’t using “normal” (old) B&M OSTRs. A majority of the park’s regular guests from the area have never experienced or seen an old B&M OSTR, unless they’ve ridden coasters in the USA or La Ronde.

    I agree cause judging from most of the people I talk to when I am at Wonderland have no idea that a lot of other parks exist. They know Disney and Universal but not a lot outside of that.


    When I say everyone I mean every whiny enthusiast online. I don't have a personal preference restraint-wise unless they're the old, unfixed vest restraints that crush your soul, and 99.99999% park guests don't care at all. If anything, they'll ride more because they feel more safe or whatever compared to the old OTSRs that sometimes leave a little of that scary space or whatever.

  2. Okay. I'm at SFFT it's a shot show. Broke down constantly yesterday. Today broke after 1 cycle to start day. Got back in line after first ride broke down again. Then they went to 1 train ops and that train had only 7 working seats. Of course with no srl and ops without enough iniative pull people and call out empty seats trains were going out with 5 or 6 all the time. SF parks don't have the ops to handle a ride like this.


    Wonder Woman has never NOT broken down exactly once when I've been in line for it, but it's also never taken more than 10 minutes to come back up.

  3. Mine Ride sucks, I wouldn't bat an eye if they removed it. It's on prime expansion space too


    It's a great ride for family's....even though the height requirement is 48 inches for some reason. Every coaster can't be 100 mph and 500 feet tall.


    Even by family coaster standards, Mine Ride is awful. I don't get why people immediately equate "taking out a sucky mine train" to "replacing all the family friendly rides with x t r e m e t h r i l l s"


    There are tons of other family friendly coasters that would utilize that space better than CCMR. It has the same height requirement as Millennium Force and is on probably the best expansion space CP has. A smaller GCI like InvadR, or even just a less sucky mine train (although that won't happen) would be great there. It's not blasphemous (is it???) to think that even for a family coaster CCMR is laughably bad.

  4. KI getting an RMC of any variety would pretty much solidify its lineup perfectly, maybe more so than a giga.

    The trifecta of Diamondback as the huge, fun crowd-pleaser (that is awesome regardless of its lack of intensity), MT as a transition coaster that pretty much anyone can enjoy, from enthusiast down to kids who won't ride anything that goes upside down but wants to try something bigger, and whatever craziness RMC throws in fills that out with a more fast-paced focused experience that may not be as intimidating as Diamondback but gives it a run for its money in terms of thrill factor.

  5. Does anyone know how crowds typically are at BGT the Wednesday right before Thanksgiving? As someone who absolutely LOVES big cats (they honestly might be a bigger draw for me personally than even the old school B&Ms), I want enough time to ride the coasters with some amount of leisure and still check out BGT's animal offerings (I've heard amazing things about the cheetah show I think?).

    Budgeting for QQ is definitely possible considering we will probably only have one day there and want to make the most of it.

  6. This may be a bit of a stupid question but can you wear slides on NTAG?


    Yes. The lap bars + shin bars make it pretty hard to get your feet off the ground. The only rides you might be worried about for wearing slides are Batman and the open-air flat rides. Coasters with trains that have floors (basically anything not made by B&M) are usually fine, though walking around a park in slides probably hurts like hell after a few hours.

  7. Hi I just want to thank everyone who gave me information on the bug situation. It helped me a lot with some decisions. We will be there Wednesday thru Saturday with two new friends, so I am hoping everything will be running okay.

    have fun!


    Lightning Rod’s trains never make it to the brake run. They just push them back from the lift slowly and put up the “Closed for the Day” sign.


    Lightning Rod has one thing on SV, at least it didn't crash on opening day (but only because its opening day still hasn't happened yet).

  8. I should also mention that if going late in the day doesn't fit your schedule, they gladly sold us $5 tickets just to ride Switchback even though that wasn't advertised on their website. Your mileage may vary on that though.


    Not even surprised. ZDT's is awesome that way.


    Is Wonder Woman off of single use now? When we were there in June you could only reserve it one time on all levels with a Flash Pass.


    I'm not actually sure. I've heard that you can get both of the Diamond Elite one-time flash pass uses on WW for a visit, but I don't know if that carried over to the normal Flash Passes or not. The website doesn't appear to have anything about it so it's probably still single use. Knowing Six Flags, who knows what it'll be on any given day

  9. If you're in the area and want to check out another fun place, ZDT's is an hour away from SFFT and their "last 3 hours" unlimited wristband is only $15. Switchback is a seriously solid coaster, the go karts are pretty fun, and generally the whole little place is a really fun way to kill a few hours. (Last 3 hours arcade is probably one of the best deals I've ever seen on any arcade ever)
