  1. 1. Superman (SFNE)- So far in 2017 they have this ride running amazingly well again. The airtime is amazing, the helixes are intense, the tunnels are awesome, the drop is awesome. If only they could get rid of those bad trains and bring back the old ones, it'd definitely be my #1 overall. 2. Fury 325- This ride is really really overrated but still great. It's got a good drop but I honestly like Superman's better. The only spot where I thought it was forceful was the treble clef but I can't stress how amazing the treble clef is. The airtime is pretty nice at the end too. The helix felt out of place and didn't really do much for me. Great ride but no where near as good as people say. 3. Nitro- I'll be honest the first time I rode this ride I rode it in the back and thought it kinda sucked. Then, I rode it in the front and fell in love with it. The floater air is amazing, the bunny hops after the MCBR are amazing, and the helix is so insanely forceful. A night ride in the front is unbelievable. 4. Intimidator- Kinda like with Nitro, I thought it was a bit weak in the back. Then I rode it in the front and I really enjoyed it. The floater are is great but that's all the ride really has going for it. It's mostly force less and the trims really kill it. Still a fun coaster tho. I'll be able to add I305 and Skyrush to this list hopefully later this year. Can't wait!
  2. They've improved tremendously at SFNE this year for sure. Superman's crew is awesome this year.
  3. False. Yup, I'm dumb La Ronde's is the oldest, Flashback is the 2nd oldest.
  4. Probably a combination. It is 30+ years old and is the oldest boomerang in operation.
  5. So Flashback just Valleyed for the 3rd time in 3 weeks. This time in between the cobra roll and the loop
  6. I've had my fair share of waiting in 3+ hour lines for Superman at SFNE. But 2 I remember in particular, one year during fright fest (It was Bizarro then) it was in the Superman switchbacks which is near the entrance where the lockers are. Then last year I went with someone who had never ridden it so we stuck out a 3 and half-4 hour line because of VR to ride it, in the 90 degee heat. So now unless the entire park is slammed and everything else has a long line I won't wait more than an hour for it.
  7. Oh my God I didn't realize my mistake in the original post until just now RIP
  8. OK so me and my friend are having a debate on whether back or front seat is better on El Toro. I think the back (especially 2nd to last) is the best he thinks front is. Now he thinks I'm to only one who likes it better back there but I know for fact about 95% of people on this forum would take it in the back right?
  9. I have never dared to look down while riding Zumie lol. I'm always looking straight on towards Nitro. I remember riding it for the first time at night last year and being so scared lmao. By the time we reached to about eye level with Nitro I realized oh shit were only half way up scariest damn thing I've ever done tbh but it's one of the most awesome feelings ever. That's why VR on this ride is so stupid.
  10. Little late to the party of bashing VR but seriously, why Zumanjaro. One I hate spiders, two I'd probably have a panic attack being 415 feet in the air with Goggles strapped to my face, and 3 the best part of Zumie is the breathtaking view. Why would any one want to do VR when you get an amazing view of the park and Philly in the distance. I wish they would just give up with the VR sh*t.
  11. I may be hitting up KD for the first time ever later this summer. Any tips for the park and where should I sit on I305 for the best first ride?
  12. Was at the park today for a few hours. Holy hell are Superman and Wicked Cyclone are running awesome. Superman felt almost butter smooth like it was as SROS. Almost no rattle in the back on the blue train today. And Wicked Cyclone just gets better and better every time I ride it. Ops on both coasters are also much faster than they've ever been. Kudos to SFNE they've made some awesome improvements to the park this year.
  13. I doubt SFNE would remove a coaster for a flat ride or a group of flat rides (even tho they should in Flashbacks case). I wish they would remove both FB and Goliath for a better coaster over the midway. Before Mind Eraser got new trains I wouldve said put an Intamin Blitz in Mind Erasers spot that interacts with terrain between DC and the South End. But Mind Eraser is fun now so I don't mind it.
  14. Surprised to not see at least Wicked Cyclone on there. I knew we weren't going to get Superman so that's disappointing. Oh well shorter off-season.
  15. I've only been on 33 coasters and been to 4 parks but here's mine. 1.Superman the Ride (SFNE). This ride has everything I want in a coaster. 221 foot drop, 9 moments of airtime, especially the camelback before the S Shields. An over bank turn with good positive g's. 2 helices with very strong positive g's and 2 mist filled underground tunnels. What more could you ask for. 2. El Toro. Strongest airtime on any coaster Ive ridden. The crossover is insane and its just balls to the walls crazy. 3.Fury 325. I found it kinda overrated. Still a fantastic ride with a great drop and lots of speed, but it felt like it was lacking something. I didnt find it all that forceful apart from the treble clef. It had some good air at the end. 4.Wicked Cyclone. Like El Toro this has some downright violent airtime. It has great halftime also. My only problem is that it lacks really good positive G's 5.Afterburn. I hadn't heard much of this ride before I went to Carowinds. Holy hell is this ride some kind of intense. 6.Intimidator. This was better than I expected after hearing it was just meh. It had even good floater airtime even with the trims. Only down side is that it's pretty much force less. 7.Nitro. A bit of a let down but was still a good ride. The floater air was really mild but it was really smooth and the helix was intense. 8.Bizarro (GADV). Nothing much to say except it was a fun floor less 9.Kingda Ka. It might get hate for being a bit shaky and having OSTRs but man what an adrenaline rush 10.Comet (TGE).Very underrated fun woodie with good ejector air.

  17. According to the SFNE online forum, there is now assigned seating on Mind Eraser. That leaves Catwomens Whip as the only coaster in the park without assigned seating.......
  18. I don't really want one tbh. I'd rather have them get a custom launch or some other high capacity coaster. Too many low capacity ones in the park. The park is also in desperate need of flats, that should be the main focus this year imo.
  19. Especially the red one. I don't really notice a rattle on the blue train its only a slight rattle there. The red constantly rattles from the 1st drop to the final turn. It's almost constant.
  20. Back in the SROS days the ride was hands down the best coaster in the world according to most people. I didn't get my first ride on it as SROS until 2008 when I was 9 so I wouldn't be able to compare it to now even though I rode it 10-11 times that year. Then came the Bizarro transformation and that made the ride seem lesser than it really was. The audio headrests new restraints and new trains made the experience worse. And in changing it back to Superman the Ride they didn't fix any of this. They just replaced the audio headrests with new headrests. A lot of the reason the ride isn't perceived as it used to be is because Six Flags has constantly screwed with it since the SROS days. If they just left it alone like they should of with TLC here or there it would probably still be that top tier coaster it once was. I think it still is top tier IMO, hell I liked it more than Fury.
  21. I don't care if it stays in the park, just take it the hell off of Superman and put it on another coaster. Keep it the hell away from Superman and Wicked Cyclone and put it on Batman or Mind Eraser and then I'd be fine with it.
  22. They shut the VR off yesterday around 6 because of rain and didn't put it back on the ride for the rest of the night. Line ended up moving really fast. One thing that pisses me off is that even when they shut the VR off they still assign seats. Great job six flags great job. Give us the old station set up, get rid of this VR garbage. PLEASE!
  23. 55 minutes is still bad on a Thursday. Even during the summer months. In past years you would only have to wait 15-20 minutes on Weekdays most of the time. Line was bad Monday when I was there it was at least a 2 hour wait. Once again that's on a MONDAY.
  24. This ride is still around its just had 2 rethemes. I would love to ride Superman @SFNE in its prime again when it was originally SROS. This is before the accident and they made the modifications to the restraints with the ankle shackles. I rode it about 10 or 11 times when I was 9 the last year it was SROS
  25. I was there for a bit today. I got front row on Wicked Cyclone twice in a row. I didn't even bother with Superman. I timed how long between a dispatch and one was 7 minutes the other was 7 and a half minutes. And sadly I think that was one of the quicker ones.
