And I really hope they don't build a dive machine if only because it'd just be a bigger, wider, taller version of Scream.

 

If you've ridden a dive machine, then I guess that's your opinion, but I don't find the two rides to be similar at all.

 

If anything, Riddler's a bigger, taller, more painful version of scream.

I find Scream to be much more painful than Riddler, but you're right in that the two rides are similar. It makes me happy that we have Scream, meaning Riddler will not get the conversion, because that thing is about as great as stand-ups get and I hope it stays that way for a long time.

X2 should be back to two trains any day they are finishing up now.

 

Also, Six Flags has not deviated from their capital investment strategy within the last 5 years or so and there is no reason to think they will start now. So no, the park will definitely not be getting Justice League and a large roller coaster in the same season.

 

I love how you specified "large" coaster. lol

 

Honestly, I'm all in for seeing that big Justice League building go up at SFMM. Man does this park need places to escape the hot California sun.

Question for my fellow coaster peeps. I am trying to activate my gold season pass to view my benefits and it is saying incorrect information.

Can someone tell me what the discounts are for bringing a quest this month? My family will be here from Maui and they want to go.

Looks like "bring a friend for half price" throughout May and June and "bring a friend for free" on mother's and father's day.

I agree, Riddler has always been the smoother ride of the two.

Finally rode the New Revolution (with VR headset) on Friday. I was concerned I would be unimpressed and/or feel queasy during or after the ride. However, I was fully into it and didn't feel the slightest bit off at any time. In fact, I might've been the only one yelling on the ride. Once off, we noticed on passing trains that everyone's too busy watching their headset visuals to whoop it up!

 

What sucked: Two out of the four people in our party had their VR headsets fail on them in some way during the ride. And I had to trade a faulty headset in for a properly working one before the ride began. Hopefully these are bugs that will be fully worked out soon. Next time I get to hit the park, I'll try it without VR to see just how much ... slower it will feel.

 

Two other gripes: Twisted Colossus didn't open until at least 90 minutes after park opening, and I still can't get a duel to save my life. (Though, to be somewhat fair, they were cycling—and wiping down when stacked—one empty train. Someone vom'd.)

 

And man, X2 all but tried to buck me from my outside/fourth-row seat during the last couple of elements. I've never had an X2 ride that jarring before, not even during a sixth-row ride last year. It may not remain my favorite ride for long.

I've found the opposite to be true as of late. Scream has been hit or miss — sometime it's surprisingly rough, and other times it's not bad. I usually skip Riddler because I'm not a fan overall (prefer Scream), but the last two or three times I've ridden it (within the past couple of months), it's felt far more rough than I recall. A friend and I got our ears majorly boxed by it.

I feel like a better use of money, would be a new ride and an overhaul of an existing ride. ie. Viper or Riddler's Revenge. I say this because SFOG is getting new themed area and they are painting and getting new restraints on their Ninja ride.

Could that also mean they've been saving up their duckets?

 

And I'll admit, I've never ridden a dive machine. I'm just basing my opinion on those of others and videos. One day, though!

Yep, agree with this. SFMM started all of this coaster overhaul business with X2 and Superman. Might as well keep it going as it seems to work well for them.

I think Magic Mountain could be the next park to receive a Justice League dark ride. They have nothing like it and it's a great fit for it being right in DC Universe. Since the land is already cleared I would expect it to come in 2017 or maybe 2018.

 

I agree that they should give Viper the Ninja treatment with new vest restraints but keep the color scheme and name.

"Was there anything in particular that caused you to rate your experience less than excellent? Your comments will be read by the park president and the park's management team."

 

*writes book*

Believe it or not, supervisors and above have access to those guest comments, and they actually do get read. Keep commenting and maybe the park will start to notice a trend other than "the food is expensive and the lines are long".

You go straight to the gate like you would at your home park.

Based on the POV alone, I'm guessing a dueling TC ride will be slightly better than Joker, but a non-dueling ride will probably be significantly less cook than Joker.

You can use your pass like normal for admission and parking (if gold). Unlike MM, DK doesn't have a gold pass line at the front gate. Once they open the front gate, they do rope drops into the major areas. Gold passes gain entry past the rope to the Kong/Medusa area ~10 min early, but most often you just get to go to the front of the Medusa line and wait another 10min for them to finish testing.

Oh, I know, and I'm happy for it. I always give detailed, constructive feedback, from the maintenance of the rides to the quality of the food, and especially if a cast member gave exceptional (or, conversely, inexcusably deplorable) customer service.

There is a difference between reading the comments and being given the ability to make change from them. There are a lot of fantastic people in management at SFMM, but they will never be given the resources to enact real change.

 

For example, lets say you write a compliant about a terrible employee. Said employee may get fired. But when you pay minimum wage with no real benefits besides free tickets to the park, you are just being forced to replace him with someone who probably cares less than the previous guy!
