Getting rid of their water rides should help with lowering the downtime statistic, considering they're all closed through the winters.

 

I'm pretty sure the report is referring to "unscheduled" downtime.

 

For example, if you "plan" on not having Jet Stream open until 11:30 on a 100 degree day (yes, I was there when this happened) it doesn't count as downtime, it's just part of the operating schedule.

 

As others have said, all this report proves is their plan of catering to the YOLO crowd is actually working.

I figured as much after I posted that, but decided just to leave it because of my serious personal problem of being forever bitter at everything SFMM does.

^The report does say that the park has the highest profit in the chain as well.

Good for the park then, hopefully they don't go back to wasting it all on huge coasters.

 

I believe the highest profit in the chain is attributable to the park having more operating days. Based on the high prices for SFGAdv season passes I would not be surprised if different metrics show SFGAdv to be the most profitable park in the chain.

I was at the mountain today. Not too bad of a day with most rides (except Riddler) running 2 trains. Much to my surprise, lots of work on F.T. That closed Superman (closed for sometime now, but they've ripped up the concrete by the Superman circle near it's entrance), Gold Rusher, and the path up to Samurai Summit from in front of Gold Rusher. I noticed the concrete work from the Sky Tower. I would've thought they'd wait until next week when the park returns to weekend only operation. I'm guessing they just realized, they way behind schedule. Big surprise there...

I haven't seen an official announcement on this but according to another Coaster Guy update the Gold Pass early entry perk gets you in 10 minutes prior to park opening, and rides will be ready to go. So depending on the number of gold passholders at the park on any given day it could mean a nice short wait for X2 or Tatsu.

SFMMGeek27 sent in a few YOLOcoaster construction pics from today. Have a look...

If you've got the "gold" you're cool enough to go past this sign.

Apparently, not that many people have the gold...

Turns out YOLOcoaster will be the first ever launched, looping rebarcoaster!

Just kidding, these are actually for a new attraction themed to "Watts Towers" (Google it, kids)

We get a birds eye view of trucks and machines penetrating the earth. Sexy.

There once was a log flume here, and now it's just mush.

One day, thousands of people will be shrieking up this hill.. "YOLO!!! YOLO!!!" I look forward to that day...

Correct. I was in e line this morning and got in at 10:20 sharp. 3 people there scanning passes. Pretty awesome. Not too many Gold holders, either. Maybe 100 people. But everyone got in quickly. I was over at Goliath at 10:25 and I was able to get on while all the regular guests were still outside park gates! It's a good head start.

Wow, I never noticed how incredibly in need of a new paint job tatsu is until now!

 

Haven't you heard the rumors? They're supposedly going to paint it a new color, turn the trains backwards, and market it as a new ride for 2014!

 

 

But all jokes aside, I agree, it's looking faded.

 

I think Scream is the worst of them all. It's looked bad since a year or 2 after it opened.

Of course, but we all know that the theming needs to be kept up, too. The parking lot won't paint itself, you know!

How did a construction update turn into a paint discussion?

 

By the looks of the parking lot (less than half full?), I'm a bit surprised at Apocalypse's line - maybe people feel that it's safe to ride the end of the world coaster now that we're all still here?

 

Great update on the construction though - I'm actually starting to get excited about the new ride.
