Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Recommended Posts

Heading into the park tomorrow for a few hours. Rain should have it cleaned up nice. Anything to look for as I'm sort of just taking a walk around and not so much into rides except Honda Express.

 

Check the status of Viper pretty please! I heard a rumour it's supposed to be back up in the next week or two!

i was shown a Mack water coaster thing.

 

I sincerely hope Six Flags installs a bunch of these. Pulsar was WAY more fun than it has any right to be!

That ride badly needs a fresh coat of paint.

 

Call me crazy but I kinda like the faded red. Fits in a little better then bright red. If they do paint it, cream white with a muted red would be fine.

 

I'll say it again, Viper is a criminally underrated ride. It packs a really good punch on the back to back loops and at least where I rode was decently smooth. The only thing that was awful was the corkscrews which was due to excessive trimming right before them, not the fault of the ride. Corkscrews shouldn't be taken that slow.

Viper is in my top three at the park, but I also don’t get why the second half needs to be taken so slowly. The first half is balls to the walls intense. Viper at SFDL takes its batwing at a decent clip, and every other Arrow corkscrew is taken faster. Although maybe that’s part of its charm to me? As I said, I love the ride, and if the excessive trimming is a maintenance thing, I’ll gladly take a trimmed ride over Viper’s removal any day.

Funny, because even though I LOVE all of Viper, I especially love the super slow corkscrews at the end. It's one of my favorite parts of the ride, along with the first drop and back to back loops.

 

Just goes to show everyone has different tastes.

Had a horrible experience at the park earlier. Viper was testing so I was just hanging around by the ride watching it.dI had a security guard come up to me out of nowhere, and accuse me of going under the chain and into the closed off/exit area. Which I absolutely did not. He then proceeded to tell me that since the ride was closed, I wasn't allowed to be anywhere near it. Including the OPEN walkway going past the ride. He had his name tag covered by one of those neon vest things so I wasnt able to get his name but I did make a complaint to guest services. I hope something is done about it as it was very offensive to me as someone who has been going anywhere between 1-3 times a week for the last three years.

Does anyone know why Twisted colossus is not operating on weekdays anymore? Today was my third visit since Sept with the ride closed.

 

There are rumors that it’s a straight budget cut but closing your best ride for staffing seems so unbelievably ridiculous that I feel like I’ll cut them some slack and assume that maybe they’re just doing some refurb or something.

 

We’re visiting in February and planned to do a day at Magic Mountain, a day at Disney and a few hours at Knott’s before we fly home but only that final day falls on a weekend. If anyone hears anything about this I’d be interested to know since if this becomes a semi permanent thing we’d probably just do the full day at Knott’s and hit Magic Mountain on the day we fly out since it’s a Saturday. I didn’t really want to cram the place into like 3 hours but it’s probably worth it to ride TC.

Has Scream been running on weekdays? If Scream is closed too then I'm guessing they're closing off that whole Screampunk area for staffing.

 

If they're running Scream, maybe they're doing some rehab work on Twisted Colossus? It opened 5 hours late two weekends ago and the employees at the entrance said it was down for a refurbishment when asked.

^ Scream is still up and running. I really doubt that the park is closing their star attraction just to save a few bucks - given that the B&M floorless coaster next door is waaaay less popular and requires the same number of people to staff it, and would make much more sense to close in this case. Somebody posted a month or so ago that there was a crane parked next to TC and some guys appeared to be doing track work. I think this is a maintenance-related closure.

Seems TC is still operational just perhaps at some points M-F it might be down. If you take the time from the parking lot you can watch 5-10 workers with table saws running and impact guns roaring. Also a cherry picker and perhaps a blue crane. Now I'm not a RMC freak so I sure dont know what boards or wood is being replaced but many boards seem to be being replaced. Again take the time from the parking lot to watch them work.

Anyone know when the holiday lights stuff gets turned off?

 

I was looking to go Wednesday Jan 2 or Thursday Jan 4. I presume crowds would be better than the week between christmas and new years.

 

Holiday in the park ends December 30th

To add to that, once HITP ends, the park closes at 6:00 PM every night, including weekends - which means most of the restaurants will close early (4:00-5:00) and the rides will be running skeleton crews and one train each. But the park will be a ghost town, so that won't matter that much.
