Photo TR SFGAm Opening Day with MCM!


Recommended Posts

So Saturday I went to SFGAm for opening day. The plan was to meet up at Raging Bulls entrance at 10:15. But coaster withdrawal got the better of me and I was drawn to Batman and V2. When I got off Batman, I meet up with TPR member Cameron and we rode V2. By the time we got to Raging Bull, they already go on the ride. So I went on Giant Drop while we waited.

 

Once we all meet up, we walked over to Viper and got in line. We talked and got our ride in.

 

So I will explain the rest of the day in Photo Captions!

 

Have fun!

one car up...cameron and my dad

 

A bald guy remembering his childhood as he rides this classic Arrow ride. My Dad, "this was the biggest ride when I was in High School". "I had to wait three hours to ride this ride" Me, "wow your old"

next up was Demon...I was a single rider in my own train :( Everyone else got to ride together.

guess who was feeling a like sick ;)

DSC02549.JPG.6c7e8387b1c04ab9ed21632d2b031d2a.JPG

It was then time for a flat ride, Orbit!

DSC02539.JPG.b55269ca51b52944a81b64c2ecf89b59.JPG

Me and Cameron got off the ride and walked to the rest of the group. During the ride, the whole seat padding was moving around and it freaked me out.

 

BTW, Viper was running amazing!

DSC02537.JPG.6ce9ada7adfd4eda7532e3cc8cb98904.JPG

we waited for 1:3...we were next.

 

Cameron, "I missed out of text messaging as a kid so I need to make up for it"

DSC02535.JPG.5b1dc8cbc7ee297965e4b2e15283a323.JPG

we saw a lot of empty seats in the station, while there was a good sized line behind the station. This is where SF needs to become a little smarter when sectioning off the lines.

DSC02533.JPG.d8a3ddf7af0ab9ed8d6b10b15e0a9ed1.JPG

what a happy group!

DSC02529.JPG.2bb56897786db610eb5ed188bd5f8f29.JPG

everyone from Midwest Coaster Madness came out of the entrance and we all introduced ourselves. Then it was time for Viper.

hold *making funny noise*....then shake the station....

DSC02525.JPG.c19d9cf7276003ff91b97ad14e3a4149.JPG

launching train! Cameron, "wow, I really miss that noise"

DSC02522.JPG.b942a18db6a81ddece2a8b4a757b0e0f.JPG

then it was V2...this is the only time I will ride V2. So you can see why I wanted to ride this ride ;)

DSC02603.JPG.f2525867e6e1ad5039263f8d66dbf429.JPG

the first ride of 2007!!!!

DSC02519.JPG.ef3fc3ad9ad78c00661f663d4619139c.JPG

Why do they have to have it say "MAY NOT be opening today"? I think, WILL NOT be open would be a better choice.

DSC02518.JPG.5959c91d403d6b1100b0df65fa2b7238.JPG

wooooo! Parking lot stuff!

random V2...

DSC02600.JPG.007dda4a616a112ce4db56e111f7c5e4.JPG

when I was walking back to HomeTown square...I took some random photos..

 

here is a B:TR shot with no train. Again, I suck at photos.

DSC02589.JPG.90848b8542437c07a0c65a6f6b6a88af.JPG

the train stopped while going up the first spike. Then as it was backing up...The Intamin Siren went off. I never got the point of the Siren. Because I think it would scare the GP. Also, I was talking to EuroTre as it happened!

DSC02588.JPG.c21e10923eed25108eec2a6ed9dc6a8c.JPG

After Eagle, me and my dad ate some lunch by V2. And as I was eating I saw this and pulled out my camera!

DSC02649.JPG.b8cf9cc83243534ed67c3373140d32a5.JPG

after the ride, we had to walk threw this mile maze again!

We said goodbye to Cameron as he left while I took a few more rides on Eagle.

DSC02634.JPG.f038c5caded9bf5cade617f5056df156.JPG

Our next ride, and Camerons last ride, was Eagle.

DSC02584.JPG.f2b3df30e2692f4d2e93306513ae4608.JPG

It almost our turn! I was actually surprised at how rattley the ride was. I mean, it wasn't painful...but it didn't feel like the smooth Bull i remember.

DSC02579.JPG.45861312e18e8f6af55fcbf3651162b4.JPG

Raging Bull in the sun....I suck at taking photos

DSC02570.JPG.13411fdc3c0b66a8bd0a426e6020df72.JPG

I wish I could do heartlining like that in No Limits

DSC02563.JPG.5853bf04407c89aad6c99acae9522d5a.JPG

that's good timing! Trains rarely stacked up throughout the day.

DSC02561.JPG.5f5679dea1bd41e1d69b2c06cf78f4d2.JPG

Its been a long time since Ive seen Bull...like 6 months.

DSC02527.JPG.9e5033750cbe26bb1cd1b09d14b3d9e9.JPG

Since the rest of the crew went to eat lunch, Cameron, me and my dad went on Raging Bull. It was running two trains and only had about a 20 min line.

eagle retracking.bmp

re tracking on red wasn't good. On the first drop the grease markers zigzagged over the two bunny hill.

 

The one on the left is the normal grease mark. And the one on the right is AE reds side before the helix. The cars shake SO much! This is not go

DSC02671.JPG.33e1f8b3c4daaa33eae0284b5bb44733.JPG

re tracking was from station to helix only on red

Looks like a FUN queue! We didn't get on American Eagle yesterday (mostly because it's a big heaping pile of CRAP!) but I'm glad you guys had fun (and I didn't have to say hi to you!) [kidding]

 

Trevor was with you?

I should have all the rest of the pics done tonight. My Internet is REALLY slow and freezes after loading about 15 pics. So I will do the rest of them tonight when I have more time.

 

Now looking back at those pics of the re-tracking of American Eagle, I really hope they fix it. It was SO rough and the grease trails on the red side zigzag SO MUCH! And you can feel the train bouncing back and forth after the first drop. That's now good at all! And they better fix it because that will cause alot of damage if not fixed.

 

PART 4!

 

Iron Wolf and more Wiggles World!

DSC02857.JPG.370a628c8b99a4a7adbc663b9ee6909d.JPG

we had an OK ride on it. But it gave my knee alot pain when walking off. Also, when I'm standing straight up, I'm too tall for the restraint. So I have to kneel when the seat lock, and that hurts my knees.

Ugh... I ate a whole funnel cake (and I think it was way undercooked) - when I got home, I was lying on the couch from 9:00-11:30 feeling like I was about to puke. I think I'll be traumatized for a while now.

I'm surprised you kids are even TRYING to ride American Eagle that much. Besides the 1000 mile hike, its a terrible ride..with terrible trains..and terrible track..its terrible (although, for the olduns out there, I'm sure it was great...whenever it was great..)

 

V2 pics are good deal though, good to see the unofficial meet was cool beans.

There's a lot worse rides than American Eagle.

DUDE! American Eagle kicks ass!!!

 

For one, you need to ride the red side! And you just have to know where to sit. When I sat in the first car, first row, I had an amazing ride. The whole ride I was screaming "Holy SH*t" and "OMG Oh Sh*t.....AIRTIME" It was the best ride on eagle Ive ever had!

 

Also, I really feel embarrassed for messing up the names

From the "happy group" picture, can someone please put names in from left to right. I just want to make sure I have it straight!

Why does every SFGAm fanboy have a boner for the "timing" or "interval" on Raging Bull???

 

most fanboys (I was one of them) either work for the park and don't mention it, or think they know everything (buying into and believing what all the employees say)

 

^and thank you for spelling my woman's name correctly Papas!

^i am a little confused

 

Also, I just realized that there are 19 typos in my P:TR!!!

 

Well, if you would have invited me Ben, I would have gone along, and you didn't have to drag your dad along..... Sigh...

 

Or...maybe if you would buy a season pass like I told you to do! I asked you everyday but you said that you were either sick or you wanted to play "World Of Warcraft" all weekend
