Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Recommended Posts

I personally like the Batman clones, as they are some of the more forceful B&M inverts. Sometimes you have to trade in some roughness for force, especially on a coaster with OTSRs. Great Bear is probably the smoothest invert I have been on but at the same time you're trading in a lot of force for that.

I don't think I've ever ridden a coaster smoother than a Batman clone. With very few exceptions, every B&M invert I've ridden is butter smooth. The only ones that throw me around / rattle at all are Raptor (actually my favorite invert), Alpengeist and Banshee near the back of the train. Those coasters aren't rough at all and they're all excellent but they're not quite as smooth as the others.

 

I guess everyone is different but to me, basically every B&M invert is ridiculously smooth.

Goliath (the Batman clone) at SFFT is not smooth, it's very rattly. Sitting in oceanwater SBNO for years isn't good for a coaster. However, I agree that it's still smoother than most coasters out there.

It was moved to SFFT in 2007, at any rate. Either way it has a very distinctive rattle to it.

The rattliness may have also come from being moved twice, as it also spent some time in some Japanese park.

 

I rode it on Friday, I did not think it had a rattle at all. That said, I really only ride B&M Inverts in the front row.

The only Batman clone I've tried is the Gadv one so I'm going off of that. It's a little rattly, but it's actually pretty smooth for a 22 year old coaster. The loops are forceful, the Zero-g rolls have this jerk to them, that first banked turn after the second loop is insane in the back, it's all just so crazy and out of B&M's character today. The wingovers do give you a little headbanging but that's because Stengel designed the older B&M inverts' wingovers to have lots of tension in the roll transitions so it banks really snappy and quick. I imagine it was a bit smoother in its prime, but in conclusion the Batman clones pack a punch for their size

You get some serious whip action if you ride in the back of CGA's Flight Deck. Totally worth it.

I have a ticket/pass question...

 

does anyone know if, when upgrading a daily ticket at the park to a gold pass, will they let you do monthly payments/membership for the balance due?

 

And, a more specific question, has anyone upgraded their West Coast Bash ticket to a gold pass in the past, and if so do you recall how much credit you got for the West Coast Bash ticket?

 

Thanks.

Did you ride on the edge? I find the edge to be rattlier most of the time (although SKC has more of a rattle)

They won't let you do a membership, Six flags requires you to sign up online for that.

So is that to say they won't do monthly payments? Did that only last a few years and get completely replaced with memberships?

Monthly payments never existed outside of memberships.

Actually they did have an "easy payment" option you could use on the website to pay for your season pass in 12 monthly installments. I used to use it before I got my membership and Cedar Fair still does it as I did that this year to purchase my Gold Pass at CGA.

It was typically only available during the early part of the season and then it would cease to be available until the next season. I think they may have gotten rid of that permanently once they started doing memberships.

i bet whatever you do it might be cheapest to wait until labor day and buy a membership when they usually have their sales. most often it's cheapest then and i believe will beat any credit you get from a normal ticket.

With the all but announced Dive Machine going to Cedar Point for 2016, could SFMM go with a Dive Machine for their 20th Coaster? I know it could be "similar" to Superman, but yet still unlike anything on the West Coast. Of all the speculation I have had for their 20th I never really gave a Dive Machine thought until now.

How is a Dive Machine similar to Superman?

They need something like Helix at Liesberg to replace Revolution and Viper. A good long terrain coaster on the mountain. Or possibly something like Firechaser Express.

 

The park has plenty of room to expand without taking out a coaster. Personally, I would love to see some some awesome flats.
