Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

I really liked the museum, and I hope they re-create it somewhere else in the park.

Don't hold your breath....

 

When the museum was being developed, it was sad to see how few items were kept from the past years. Only a few surviving items were in a presentable condition. The only reason the Troll costume survived was because it was forgotten in a back room of the old Cyclone Bay employee break room. (And still, it's hat was missing.)

 

The amount of work that was spent on putting that museum together, while being given virtually no budget was amazing. It happened to be at a time when the park was lucky enough to have a few great Ride Supervisors who not only cared about the park in its current state, but also wanted to celebrate the parks rich past.

 

The main reason the museum closed was because the few nice items that were on display became sunbaked and no longer presentable. No money was allocated to maintain the museum, so mostly everything was pulled out.

 

The park does not seem to care about its past. Every big ticket item that would be great to hold onto, ends up being sold to Dog Mike (the owner of the dog kennels south of the park on The Old Road) to make money off the item, or give it to him because it is cheaper than paying for someone to come haul it away from the park.

 

Too focused on the future to care about the past. If that is where they want to place their focus, then good for them.

 

 

Better than nothing > history and memories.

The Q&A discussion about SFMM's 2014 kiddie coaster and a mention about YOLO Jr inspired me to make this today...

 

 

Live Half Throttle!

 

It's... beautiful. *sheds a tear*

 

Now we just need to wait for someone to make No Throttle. It'd have no loop at all, just a launch straight into a turnaround over the main stretch of track and into the brakes.

 

Also, mind posting that to the TPR Game Exchange? I'd love to download it and experience the thrill for myself.

Holy crap, that costume was there when I worked there 10 years ago!

 

Also, that kennel has become an SFMM museum in its own right. I believe he was evening restoring the 99 train to run around the property?

The worlds FIRST Jr. Top Hat! Yet another record!

 

It would also be the slowest inverting multi-launch Premier Rides roller coaster south of Castaic and north of Sylmar. Great records.

X2 is apparently waiting for a new lift chain. The park has confirmed that it won't be fixed in time for fright fest. It's been claimed that it may not open until December. They were working on it a couple weeks ago with a crane, but I imagine they were just removing the broken chain.
