I know I have my head out over my skis here, but is there any chance that we can just have the name Full Thr0ttle read as it is typed (not YOLO)? I get the joke, I understand the humor disclaimer, but it seems like you should be able to to post/discuss one of the most unique additions of 2013 without a word filter snagging it.

Seriously, if our word filters and sense of humour bothers you that much, please find a more serious theme park forum to post to.

Hi there, newbie here, longtime SFMM patron.

 

I went to SFMM on Saturday, Jan. 12. Chilly, but a good day to go nonetheless. Some observations:

 

1. The ticket booths don't seem to be bothering with a daily updating of the ride-closure boards. On the day I went, it said that Lex Luthor, Superman, and Gold Rusher were all to be closed (along with Roaring Rapids and Tidal Wave). I expected that might be the case with the FT construction. But inside, all three rides are operational. However, X2 was never open. Not sure if this is a lingering problem, but in my previous visits, those boards have been accurate.

 

2. You mean to tell me the only ride with a single-rider option is Viper?

 

3. The ride-station staffs all seem to be meeting their timed deadlines for unloading/loading passengers ... except Riddler's Revenge, which had an interminable wait with one operational vehicle. (On top of that, the ride gave me a headache for the first time, which added to my frustration. Since Scream was the last ride to make my head hurt, I skipped that one this time.)

 

4. I downloaded two ride-wait apps: Coasterilla and Ride Hopper. Neither were reliable (I gave up on them), but I wasn't sure if maybe that was because they relied on user input and I was attending during a slow day/month.

 

5. I have never waited less for Tatsu (15 minutes for the front seat). I could have ridden three times in the amount of time it took me to ride RR.

 

6. I read a million complaints on FourSquare about Green Lantern and how it was going to mutilate my crotch and bruise my legs and bring back my headache and pretty much maim me. However, I found it really comfortable. And the ride, I think, is generally underrated.

 

7. My Colossus train barely made it up the hill after the flattened camelback and before the last three bunnyhop drops. That's never happened before in my experience, and made me kinds sad. As much as I love that traditional ride, I really do hope they get a Texas Giant-like refurb.

 

8. Only waited 20 minutes to register the season pass ... but no discount books? Anyone know if they're mailing them out this year? (I forgot to ask when registering, and when I did remember, I wasn't able to visit Guest Relations.) I'm in NV and can't get to the park a whole lot.

 

9. I have always found Apocalypse boring, but I've also always ridden it first thing in my previous visits. I purposely rode it this time right before closing, thinking a) the darkness and b) the hot/maybe oily rails from all-day operation might make for a better ride. My intuition served me correct. A much faster, more intense, more unpredictable ride -- wow. My favorite ride experience of the day.

The best part about the SFMM thread is that the same topics always find a way to make their way back into the discussion---Green Lantern being no exception.

 

It's the only ZacSpin I've been on and I found it horribly uncomfortable and pointless, since it only flipped once.

I am going to go out on a limb and say that B&M probably thought of that when designing the new chassis to run backwards. Just a hunch though. But lets discuss that in the appropriate thread until if/when SFMM does the same.

Maybe it's a trial? Many people suggest a single rider line at SF Great America. They only have a single rider line on Ragin Cajun (a spinning wild mouse which they are only allowed to put 3 adults in one car), but it would really help on the other coasters - especially the B&Ms. You can watch the trains come in on Raging Bull with usually between 4-10 empty seats (some 2 together) in every single train. It's still a high capacity ride, but the option to fill those seats would be great. It would help out even more on Superman.

 

I hope this is a trial and eventually shows up on more popular coasters across the chain. Viper is an odd choice, but perhaps the station setup facilitated the trial?

Sometimes work really is a pain, distracting me from what really counts...I remember when news for YOLO first broke, and we saw what it'd be.

Now I see its been dubbed the YOLOcoaster..what the hell did I miss in the meantime!?

Nothing.

 

So it just became dubbed that by the forces of the internet?

 

 

Green Lantern looks like it's either pretty fun, pretty brutal or maybe both. Pretty excited regardless
