Hot chicks + good theming = best SF ride ever!

What a beautiful coaster! Now it just needs grass under it...*hint hint*

The transfer track was where Joker's station track used to be...if you looked in there, Joker's theming was still present!

A look from the que

The wait looks bad, but for whatever reason, SF had the indoor que closed in the morning...

Wait a minute! So is Tempest still there? In that picture with Scream! and Poltergeist, I didn't see it. Can't you usually see it from that view? It might be a little further over than I thought (if it's still there), but Screamscape had posted a rumor that Tempest might be leaving the park. What's the deal on that rumor? Any truth to that?

 

Anyways, I'm so excited to go there next weekend to ride THBS. It looks great! The Boardwalk looks great!

 

Finally a new coaster at SFFT!

Yeh they need a spinning coaster here in Orlando. And I mean an authentic spinning ride, not a spinning wild mouse. If Universal put's in a spinning coaster in place of the BTTF ride. Then I will be excited. Man they could theme it to alot of things. Just nothing off the top of my head right now. Tony Hawk's Big Spin looks fun, but I LOVE the tarantula spinning ride that Robb & Elissa did a video on.

Heh, alright, I agree that it's not too pretty under the ride, but you have to give SF a little credit for the theming in the que and on the building outside. Also, it was pretty fun riding over the ramp section, it did actually remind me of gliding over a ramp on a skateboard!

 

Gerstlauer and SF are actually using a quite different loading system on this ride than was used on Pandemonium. On THBS, two trains are loaded and unloaded simultaneously, and then sent off together. One waits at the bottom of the lift while the other makes the climb. This allows for 2 cars to be in the station, 2 in the lift area, 2 on the circuit, and 2 waiting to be loaded/unloaded on the brake run. It worked quite well, and the lines moved very fast. With the que building completely filled and the 3 long switchbacks on the boardwalk filled, It only took me about an hour to make it on the coaster.

 

I'll get around to posting some more photos in a little bit!

This is where Rattler does "the wave." The new wood slapped on there doesnt help either

The ride's entry on the Boardwalk...your supposed to enter on the right, but a lack of signs confused many people

I think those TH logos on top are pretty sweet

I was at SFFT over the weekend as well. I have been working in Austin for 2 months. I rode THBS twice during the day. The first time was 1:20 minute wait. The second was about :45minutes.

 

Any more good hot chick pictures!! I thought I saw that blond. It looked like my wife 20 years ago!

Whoops, I tottaly missed your comment. Actually, Tempest was located right were THBS's sweeping turn is located. It has been removed from the park though!
