Recommended Posts

Ever since I started working at SFDK, I haven't really had the chance to enjoy the park as a guest. I happened to have a couple of days off this week, so I decided to check out the park.

27.jpg.0c5f4785769e70b9ed93ec9d5876b103.jpg

after, part 2 to come later

26.jpg.47b5c33c66dde9e45d0a594394e66a83.jpg

before

25.jpg.3970bd462003d5c02b511ace13fc01f2.jpg

This one's REALLY wet

24.jpg.34b702d8a610105fa7c4d2122fdfed66.jpg

The park's splashdown boat

23.jpg.3c40bd7b47e4fc013b9d7b290bcd91b3.jpg

Loose articles are a no-no.

22.jpg.7fd34a8b3338300ead3617921d4ad52c.jpg

Next up was ROAR

21.jpg.80881afba710bcb5386a4ef0c88d269b.jpg

Even hang'n'bang was a walk on, and it normally has the longest line

20.jpg.ac2b0e1d340f70922904cc410a271337.jpg

Believe it or not, Thomas had the longest line in the park.

19.jpg.32ddc3cd6550ccf21f323ebbfb7121a9.jpg

His moving eyes are REALLY creepy

18.jpg.c115341336bf75eba89c69eaa274ee52.jpg

17.jpg.e7e1ebfe06d960d49818f585d2ce493b.jpg

Here comes that metrosexual Sir Hat dude

16.jpg.7396ad5fcb9b3222126e1611451c1cbc.jpg

Thomas attracts all of the kids with his huge fake plastic..........wheels. (Seriously, those wheels are actually fake)

15.jpg.68fd4d09827c864765ef62fa6c3c6a80.jpg

14.jpg.5ced8f680528e807cec73dc9576bd30b.jpg

Thomas comes around the bend

13.jpg.7a0307d62239a388e8efd5383d24bfc8.jpg

A big problem with the new statues is that kids love to play on them, despite there being a barrier

12.jpg.405e95dc0e1a22c3e65ca8ac98320072.jpg

They really are milking the name change, it's even on the bathroom sign

11.jpg.440d4a2ef8a2f77ab1757dc0bbc57e23.jpg

"I'm the giant snake on the side of Medusa's station.... GIMMIE SOME CANDY!!!!!!!

10.jpg.8096c2b9c5f25a72be82e3aa5da6c90f.jpg

It was a five minute wait for the front, and a walk on for every other row

9.jpg.fb1d7f0e3dab08f781694dc4eb14bc76.jpg

8.jpg.978e986496e1ec040ff57e65daf00925.jpg

Time to ride Medusa!

7.jpg.d030d88a30e0eff579cc618c9b9d0a0b.jpg

The red train, however, had it's front row open.

6.jpg.58411f16592590d12a1fbdacf2f004f0.jpg

The yellow train had it's front seat roped off.

5.jpg.fb0528af9b9b8c2e087a916d9e5b22ad.jpg

The hang'n'bang going up the lift

A look at a closed V2

Part 2

55.jpg.67c3454421b949d141d8530309a60157.jpg

Every park should have a first aid station this close to their Vekomas, part 3 coming later

54.jpg.4511ab1cc1162ac3b8a194f64090b562.jpg

Three trains in one shot!

53.jpg.30689fc0bd41bfee0cfb9611394e4bd6.jpg

The shark comes down to bite the train

52.jpg.e85fdfe7906da8e8029c15cb017f5d6f.jpg

Boomerang, one of the better ones.

51.jpg.2af66e91ad809e5b6e807a13f2346c4a.jpg

VooDoo was stuck in this position for about ten minutes

49.jpg.c6fce6fab07f59f56a9a109a29238d78.jpg

Elephants

48.jpg.54e57f02ef35362ba6e60e7ffa4a4eac.jpg

WOAH, screw the lions and tigers, this looks like a MUCH better exhibit

47.jpg.a9ca831dcdcde787020e616df448e96f.jpg

a little monkey thing

46.jpg.ddb355ab63aebdf50c5104fcfb230136.jpg

a baby bat, sorry about the blurriness

45.jpg.afa2562122a265678e724a4a80c587b9.jpg

Sounds interesting, let's check it out

44.jpg.800c450ed4e038a51b8c55c9c7aa26b7.jpg

.....so was he.

42.jpg.6fbd0bdf45b61013385129fdf0c45b3e.jpg

This guy was lying around.....

40.jpg.3d711e9d6ef2c16cec01ce9149e84323.jpg

Giant tortoise

39.jpg.fd31d5b03b0c198929da27d9ff2d9e03.jpg

It's the themed yet generically named Skycoaster!!!!

38.jpg.165d3df0b6b46ce349db3e655b5bb536.jpg

37.jpg.d3ad04be1ec340990424b32e51ff28e8.jpg

The flamingo pond behind VooDoo

35.jpg.09ac79ad57b3e33cf8b8baef8903dd5a.jpg

I wonder how he feels, out of all the rides in the park to be named after him, he gets the world's slowest SLC.

33.jpg.bc05fd6e9145e5031fabd0d69cc179fd.jpg

This part of the park was DEAD

Part 3

79.jpg.b808a77dc1681a5d0b2eedd8aaf541e2.jpg

One final shot.

78.jpg.1f90bf3cabdd5ca98bc486ca0c95890b.jpg

77.jpg.562f46e817634c5c566d7f8b7edb26ac.jpg

They got V2 running, and it ended up having the longest line of any coaster, but still shorter than Thomas

76.jpg.2669f20971a6cbe7ca5e4c5b45179096.jpg

For all you flat ride freaks out there, this was the world's first Zamperla Hawk 48.

74.jpg.459f42bdfef16d2548493e76de317058.jpg

Hammerhead

70.jpg.edf22651d9d2e834c3322cc926844024.jpg

More penguins!

69.jpg.11403b5a5a8caf6f60043ea74035bde1.jpg

Penguins!

68.jpg.9fa83db9bf21ed11ca9573bdf36bf404.jpg

These guys looked like they were going to fight, but someone threw a fish into the pool and the one on the right went to get it, what a fatass

67.jpg.67c60bebc5f07ed37f4ecd3cd6a9f466.jpg

This is NOT an acceptable amount of wetness!!!

66.jpg.4c9574a6b35996979d71af6fee90688a.jpg

Alright, stop plugging Toyota already!

65.jpg.933f85caa42170114b44b57ce5254b75.jpg

As you can see, the park was pretty empty.

64.jpg.d00c1de8df1fb5e4697179d6f586ed79.jpg

Back to the Pacific Northwest setting, I see.

63.jpg.d5a00467c556ee211f6594a4951ad530.jpg

Shouka was about to start, so I thought I'd watch.

62.jpg.a5130125437f54265a6baa72455999ea.jpg

Much better than Stargate, but I still wish they would bring back Dino

58.jpg.a3e61faa01dd2f1c62f7a59d793b3613.jpg

It's fellow TPR member Rollerholden!

60.jpg.2e693e3fd0ae7c46ebc4c2608c826bfe.jpg

The standard verision is much better than the Giant Frisbee's, IMO

59.jpg.e31d3dd700e81e42046b8ac72b11719b.jpg

Tazmanian Devil is the park's Frisbee.

57.jpg.8d223b66d485d7debcb9b89c969f6e85.jpg

Bird pirate treasure theatre island world or whatever it's called

56.jpg.56e22fda973e71c1cb5527a392632a44.jpg

The gator is just angry because he has to live under a Vekoma.

Who goes to work on their day off, seriously?

 

Aside from that wise remark, great TR, and again, showing off how nice looking Thomas Town is. At least this reaffirms my faith in Shapiro after seeing that LaRonde TR.

Well, I haven't really seen the changes of the park this season, and I hadn't been there as a guest except for maybe an hour or so before or after my shift to get a few rides in, and I wanted to check out the rest of the park.

That photo of me came out so bad! And that "shark" at Boomerang isn't a shark! His name is Oscar!

 

Haha..we have an Oscar on our Boomerang at SFOT too..but he's a spider..or bug...it's kind of unclear heh.

 

Edit - Picture

DSCF0300s.jpg.9765ceaecea4904b34440285b898b6a5.jpg

This was before the refurb he got this year, but you get the idea.

SFDK looks nicer every time I see it! Are you sure this park isn't owned by Busch or something? And why can't SFNE be that nice?

 

Also, I agree with you that normal frisbees are ALOT better then the giant ones. I rode maXair thinking it would be mindblowing because normal frisbees are so fun, but instead it really meh. I can't believe that the giant ones supposedly go 70 MPH, it's just impossible with how boring they are

SFDK is nice, but its not THAT nice. It still has that touch of Six Flags ghetto...i mean class.
