I was at the park that day and the rain made for some short lines which was great!!!

 

As for V2, I find it kind of boring as you just go up and down the spikes a couple of times, alot of people really like it but for me the ride isnt worth much of a wait when there are far better coasters in the park.

Thanks for the positive feedback.

 

how is that V2 coaster? I've heard a lot of mixed things about that ride and I would like to hear what you thought of it.

Its....an impulse coaster, not much else to say .

The park empties out at night, a lot of people go to see Starlight Spectular or ride rides that they have interest in riding again (such as rides that are not Big Easy Balloons or King Chaos).

2007_0608Image0045.JPG.6ec48f111583c0ad2bff00dba50fef9e.JPG

Jesters Wild Ride is extremely popular among park guests.

This ride gets way too much hate, so its a little rough around the edges. Big deal, it still delivers a great intense ride.

The park worries me in strange ways. Like 10 years ago, it would be a 30 min+ wait on rides even like Demon and Whizzer. Now it seems the only ride with a wait, even on a nice day is Raging Bull which is usually less than 40.

 

But I guess that since there are so many coasters now, and the fact that they usually run a couple trains on each coaster, there should be no reason for much of any kind of wait.

^ Don't forget the weather sucked on this particular day. Most times there's a good long wait for Batman, S:UF, Deja Vu, V2 and, Ragin' Bull. It's also the beginning of the season while most schools are still in session.

 

Nice PTR. Some of the scenic shots are real nice, I love the picture of the Orbit.

 

Are you a GBN student? That'd be my alma mater.....way back in the day.

Hurricane Harbor really sucks people in during the summer now. I remember before it was built the theme park lines were a lot longer during the summer, but now they're not nearly as long.

 

The newer pictures that are on page are from yesterday. Heres the wait times during the day along with a few notes from yesterday.

 

SUF - 2 trains - 40 minutes.

Cajun - 5 cars - 20 minutes.

BTR - 2 trains - 15 minutes.

V2 - 20 minutes.

Iron Wolf - 2 trains - 10 minutes.

American Eagle - 4 trains - 8 minutes.

Demon - 2 trains - 8 minutes (they were ready to stick on that third train if they had the line for it).

DejaVu - 40 minutes.

Viper - 2 trains - 15 minutes.

Giant Drop - 6 cars - 15 minutes.

Raging Bull - 3 trains - 20 minutes.

Whizzer - 3 trains - 15 minutes.

 

At night all the rides at night were walk ons except DejaVu and SUF.

 

And yes I am a recent graduate of Glenbrook North HS. Apparently a popular school for people in the theme park industry (as thats also where Mark Shapiro went)...

Great TR, any TR with coasters, triple play, and a mention of fiddlers fling gets an A in my book. I haven't been for about 16 years now, and I was wondering if the fling was still around. I need to get out there.

Great to see SFGAM finally getting everything open. The new stunt show looks great, and they finally got Deja vu and Sky Treck Tower working which are all good things. I haven't been to SFGAM in about a month, so hopefully things are still running well when I return.
