California Great America (CGA) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

During the fireworks, it was stuck, but not upside down (I've never seen it be stuck upside down, I don't think it can, well hopefully anyways)-the guests were upright the entire time up there. As for the shaking, are you referring to the part with the yellow-orange circles on it or the gondola itself shaking? I've only seen the part with the yellow/orange circles do that, but the mechanics say nothing about it when they are up there watching it cycle.

 

The gondola was shaking when they were testing the ride after people were stuck on it for 5 minutes right side up.

 

 

I think our hopes for a new ride for 2012 should be over. Unless, they build a new ride on Invertigo's site, there is no land clearings anywhere that I could see, I even checked today on Star Tower.

Ride construction doesn't have to start this early

At all. It depends on the rides size to be honest.

I'm happy the park is seeing increased customer

Throughput.

 

 

Exactly.

 

Exactly.

 

There is no reason at this point to think nothing will happen, its only July!

I will be heading out to the park tomorrow. I should be wearing a plain red shirt and blue shorts. If you see me, be sure to say hi. Is anyone else going to be at the park tomorrow?

I'm hoping to see better ride crews than what I saw my last two visits. I didn't see any good ride crews except for the Flight Deck Crew. They could use a lesson from Christina perhaps?

Here's a "new opportunity" that we've been waiting for: The Invertigarden has been officially named "The Green," and now has a stage sitting in the center of it for Bay Area Bands. I saw it today, and seems horribly out of place, but also looks temporary. They were sure quick to remove the plants in the center for it, so maybe the landscaping really is temporary. Parkthoughts' Flicker page has a good picture of it. (I tried to post the link, but it wouldn't work. Just search for recent pictures of "Invertigo" on Flickr).

 

At last, Tiki Twirl has a real sign. Parkthoughts has a picture of it as well.

 

Park was dead today, I rode Drop Tower seven times!

I don't and its not because that you have to pay for it. That is the only ride/attraction I will not go on because I am sort of afraid of it. I just don't like the feeling of falling the way you do on that ride. I can't wait until Aug. 7 for Bay Area day at CGA should be a lot of fun!

does anyone ride xtreme skyflyer? I work it and no one ever seems to mention it lol

I think no one mentions it because it is a upcharge attraction cloned at many different parks. I did ride the one at CGA on my last visit in August 2007. It was 5:30 and we were pretty much done with everything in the park so I decided to do it with my sister and one of her friends (their first skycoaster). It was fun, but I probably wouldn't do it again unless I was with people who've never done it before and were interested in trying it. I have also done the one at SFMM back in 2004.

I've been tempted to try out CGA's but the $16.99/rider charge scared me off. I've ridden a Sky Coaster before so I already pretty much know what to expect when riding.

 

About the "Inverti-Stage..." It looks really out of place. Hopefully something else will take over the stage soon. And I'm glad Tiki Twirl's finally got an official sign now...only took long enough to get the sign printed out

About the above picture, the grass looks like it's seen better days, especially compared to the rest of CGA's landscaping. Perhaps this means something...

I'd ride it if it didn't cost money. I'd shell out the money to do it one of these visits.

 

Bipolar much?

No! I'd really like to ride it! It looks well worth the money. I just really, REALLY, don't want to pay for it that badly.

I went to the park today and had a very good time until later on and I will get to that in a bit. A few things I noticed today FireFall was back open and running great it seemed I did not ride it today. That Grizzly is only running the Blue train for some reason and that Vortex seemed to be very rough today. The park seemed fairly busy for a week day from when I seen in the past. Now to the bad news and well I learned a lesson also. I was ridding Delirium today and as it swooped down my phone fell out and completely shattered luckily I have a black tie plan through Best Buy and I am able to get a new one in a couple days I included a picture for your enjoyment.

Don't post that pic here. You're going to make CGA install the fluffy bunnies that charge you to store your stuff while you ride like they have at some other parks coughSixFlagscough
