They were pretty consistent all last year, until the "incident" on Green Lantern and the retracking of Apocalypse.

 

This is my home park, and I don't know about "the incident" on the Grunt Lantern you spoke of. What was it???? just curious.

 

+1.

 

I've never heard of any incident on Green Lantern, aside from the normal rough ride it provides... So now I'm really curious to know about this incident.

^Haha!

 

But seriously... I thought there was going to be an incident when I rode that awful thing. My eyeballs were ready to pop out! All the blood in my body was in my head, not fun. Never again. Not even worth taking a chance on that.

By “incident” they just meant whatever happened to make the ride nonoperational, and I think it’s something mechanical.

 

Also, I’ll be working at Full Throttle all week so come see me and say hi! I’m Andrew. Come complain about one train operations! Haha.

^ Correct. I didn't mean to imply something more scandalous. There was a fairly serious problem discovered with the ride and modifications had to be made before they are able to reopen it. It was serious enough to make the ride immobile for several months.

Even mechanically, I've heard no details about what exactly happened with it to be SBNO for so long. What mechanical problem is it experiencing?

 

I mean, whether people like the ride or not, SFMM would seem to have some incentive to get it working again:

 

1) They paid for it. If I bought a car that had a mechanical issue, I'd be pretty pissed off. You'd think at minimum there'd be some sort of lawsuit with the manufacturer over whatever happened to make it be out of commission for so long.

 

2) To firmly establish their coaster count... quality of rides aside, having 20 coasters in one park (once they get their next coaster) is a hugely marketable milestone, and a first in the world to break 20. But it'd be a moot point/embarrassment if of one of those 20 is SBNO.

ff. You'd think at minimum there'd be some sort of lawsuit with the manufacturer over whatever happened to make it be out of commission for so long.

I wouldn't be surprised if there were a whole host of legal issues underway with regards to that ride. To be honest, I'm surprised it stayed open as long as it did without producing an array of injuries that require litigation.

Hi!

 

I haven't posted here for a while and hope this is the right forum, I apologize if it is not.

 

I'll be visiting LA from 20th-29th of June from Denmark, and definitely plan on going to SFMM (and Knott's as well)! I'm sorry as this might be an oft-repeated type of question, but do any regulars have any tips, especially about which day within my time frame might be best/least crowded to go? I do plan on getting a Flash Pass if it is crowded. And any other general advice for the park? Best place to eat, any underrated rides, etc.? I'd much appreciate it. And if anybody will be at the park those days and wants to meet up, send me a message!

 

Thanks!

 

I would suggest avoid Saturday. Sunday's are managable. I have gone on plenty of Sunday's and got in a lot of rides. I always goto Full Throttle first and knock it out as it will always have a line and it will always take a while to get through that line. I am a gold member, so I get in the park 10 minutes early and I generally ride it before the gates open. I then goto Goliath. I think Goliath is rather average and I don't really want to wait for it later in the day. It is normally a walk on at this point. I then goto Twisted Colossus and I will ride it until it gets a bit of a line. Sometimes I get 3-4 rides and others it could be 6-8 rides. After TC, I hit up Scream and Bstman. Generally they will have no lines so I can hit them up twice. After that I head over to Riddler's which will have a line. Operations is a little slower on this ride. I generally hit up Justice League as well to break up the rides. It normally takes a little time to get through. Then I either hit up Superman if the line is under 20-30 minutes, or Tatsu if the line is under 30 minutes, or Apocalypse if it is under 30 minutes, I want to be over at X2 between 2:30-4:30 as this is when the line is the shortest. Most people start out with X2 and then come back to it after dinner. Late afternoon has the shortest lines. Sometimes no lines. Also Viper is pretty much a walk on. I find this plan of attack to be the most efficent. I think if you avoid Saturday you should be fine.

Went to the park today, the construction walls are down around Crazanity and they were doing a lot of concrete/electrical work. They were testing the lighting on the ride, and I saw it start to swing slightly a couple times, but no full cycle yet, at least for the two hours I was watching! I might go again on Thursday and I'll try to get some more pictures.

I am still very surprised SF didn't go with a DC theme Crazanity like all of the other iterations

 

 

 

Should have named it something like G-Force, Shock Wave or like I said before, Spin Out! Keep the fair theme. Since it's in the little carnival style area.

^ Crazanity always sounded like a corporate mandate name to me, so they they could re-purpose a bunch of Spinsanity merchandise that didn't sell at other parks by changing the "Spin" to "Cra".

 

I'd bet money that this ride name came directly from corporate lol

I think you're right. There was even the "SpinZanity" typo on the sign when it first arrived.

Look I am just glad that it isn't another Justice League themed ride. You have Riddler's and Justice League in one area separate by the boardwalk area and then Batman/Green Lantern in another area and then you have Superman/Lex Luther Drop of Doom just down the road. Technically Superman is on top of the mountain. Of the course the park isn't as bad as Six Flags Great America. Superman and Dark Knight appear in the front of the park. Joker and Batman in another section and the Justice League way off in another section. I would prefer that they get the correct theming in areas of the park and not show another Justice League themed ride down our throats.

Dropped by the park today for a couple of hours. It was pretty busy, with most of the major rides seeing 30 to 60-minute waits. I just rode the stuff that never really has a wait and bailed: Viper, Batman, Scream. Scream was running surprisingly well today (2nd to the last row, right side) with zero rattle and barely any roughness. The line for TC didn't look too bad, but I didn't even want to bother. Green Lantern looks like it's got brakes all over it now (but it'll take more than brakes to save it!). Anyhow, a few pics of the new ride. It looks great and is perfectly positioned in the park. The lights were running on it, and there was a water dummy in a seat, so I suspect it'll be testing soon. There's still a lot of work to be done surrounding it though.

Hi everybody.... I have some quick questions for you guys. In August this year I will make my very first visit to America from Switzerland and I will go to some parks in California. First off will be SFMM. I will land on August 18th at LAX and because I can't drive yet (neither does my friend) I need to know how to get to SFMM from the airport. Also I will stay there for two days (Sunday and Monday) in the near Hilton hotel. Can I walk to the park from there or do I need to get a taxi?

 

Thank you very much for your replies.

As far as needing a Taxi from the Hilton you will not need it. Long as its the Garden Hilton 27710 The Old Rd, heck they are closer than some parking spots at SFMM. Also they offer a free shuttle to main gate from the hotel and pickup service also. Travel from LAX I will look at later.
