Is it bad to say that, at this point, I literally don't remember the last coaster I rode?

Mine Blower at Fun Spot. I thought it was definitely the better of the two Fun Spot wooden coasters. 

The Loch Ness Monster last night.

Why was it a let down? We visited a few months ago in summer and it was running as great as ever.

will be back next week and hope it'll be great again!

Well, in Summer it ran great as hell. I loved it.
But what really annoys us is the inacceptable operations. It always lasts aroung three to five minutes for them to load and check a train. Looking at Millennium Force (same train and restraints) it's just ridiculous.
Then, the second train wasn't there for the whole season, serving as a parts donor for the first one, making lines again way longer then they should be.
Third, they had to wait until the train was loaded up to more that 50% of all seats occupied to save electricity (the opetrator told me. I aseked if they are in fear of valleying with a not full train. There were only around 50 people riding GeForce. Most waited for front or back, so we had to wait several minutes for people filling the train.
Fourth and last: Everytime in the last days of operation it gets somehow rough and bumpy between the first big hill and the bunny hops. Every year.

So to summarize: It's still a great coaster. I have the feeling, it's too big and too expensive for the park it's in. If it would get the love it deserves and the beforementioned points are solved, it would be awesome. And knowing this and waiting ten minutes for a bumpy ride is a letdown.

Iron Rattler at night. With sunglasses on. Dispatched during the "park is now closed" spiel was playing. Why don't more people talk about the night rides on this thing? Holy crap. And I have some Outlaw Run night rides to look forward to later this week as well.

Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit, which is growing on me. It’s not the smoothest, it feels like it was designed by an alcoholic monkey and if you stacked all of the midcourse brake runs from end to end it would stretch to Miami and back seven times but the music gimmick is really fun and for some reason I’m starting to like the thing. Maybe I’m just trying to be a hipster about it or something, I don’t know. Lol

I had to think hard and long to remember that my last one was Nitro back during Fright Fest 2019. Honestly, though, that has a lot more to do with the COVID 10 15 20 25 30 35 that I've managed to pack on rather than quarantine, though we've been pretty disciplined in that regard, as well.

I mean, not exactly high on the list but for what it is, it's fun enough. I would check the line and if short just spam it a few times and move on, I always enjoyed it personally! I was lucky, the 6 times I rode it over 2 days 5 of em the break runs basically weren't there. It IS awkward but I didn't mind...in a way I liked the slow then oh drop! feeling. The other ride a couple of em did really stop you and that did suck and ruin the ride. But yeah fun enough! Can even feel some force in the helix and if you reeeaaalllllly use your imagination can feel one or two pops of air lol 


As for last I rode. Boulder Dash. It was more of a let down than my first ride, and this was on a hot sunny day so can't even wonder if it was bad weather. In the day I'm sure was a helluva ride, those POVs are nuts but now? The first half was quite weak and the second was.....well not much better. Was a shame the fast relentless constant out of your seat ride was now pretty sluggish and gave at best pops of air. To think I drove the 2 hours for that ****  XD

Twisted Cyclone at SFOG last month. I started my day at this park with two rides on it and ended my night with two more rides on it.

Steel Eel at SeaWorld San Antonio.  Fiesta Texas today was the most crowded I've ever seen an amusement park get (serves me right for trying to go during Spring Break 😆), but thankfully the lines at SeaWorld weren't too bad at all.
