California Great America (CGA) Discussion Thread

The funny thing is that Prudential doesn't even operate out of that building. It's just one of the properties the own and lease. I think Avaya and Citrix are currently the tenants. Prudential is just concerned about getting future tenants.

 

I think Prudential is actually right on the other side of 101 if I'm not mistaken (thought I saw it on Google Maps a while back anyway). I believe you're right about who's currently in those buildings. I know in the past Nortel was one of the tenants (and I think they were part of the roadblock/complaining tenant). I know Namco/Bandai was in there for a while, not sure if they're still there.

 

Back to Gold Striker, I hope this coaster gets taken care of unlike it's cousin up north...which has become quite the rattle-bucket over the years. I remember riding Roar from 1999-2004 and it rode pretty decent during those times. This past weekend it had it's jackhammer moments but was a bit better than 2011 when I rode. I have faith though and they'll take care of GS.

Mmmmmm....Tuna Melts.... I can see them being overpriced (surprise, surprise...) and can see the contents in the subs being 'skimped out' if they don't already skimp out on toppings and such at a normal Subway.

 

I wonder where it will be located. My guess is that it will be in the old icecream/old sign shop.

We probably don't have to worry about Gold Striker getting rough over time like Roar and the other early GCIs. I can't think of any of their other coasters equipped with Millennium Flyers since day 1 that have developed that level of roughness so far.

You should take Roar for a spin. Roar west is equipped with Millennium Flyer trains. I think Roar west was the first GCI to use those comfy trains.

I was just at SFMM riding terminator and had some of the best times on a wooden coaster. That thing flies and is so smooth around turns, almost no jerkiness. Then I rode Roar at SFDK last weekend and had a completely opposite experience. I wanted to get off that thing pretty much right when it started. Totally uncomfortable, jacking my whole body around making my head hurt. That got me worried.

 

I have a good feeling that GS is gonna be more like the SFMM GCI which was great- also with the way that CGA is taking care of that piece of crap Grizzly we should be all good with GS staying smooth for a while.

 

Think I might head out to the park for some live Gold Porn & the pink butthole slide tonight. Was delirium open for you guys when you went?

^^ You'll know whether the yellow slide is running well or not depending on whether your tailbone hurts or not afterwards due to the insane airtime. Last time we did it, it wasn't that greasy and it felt like we hit a trim on the fourth and final dip and there wasn't any airtime though. Hopefully they've re-greased it back to it's original glory!

When I first saw the GS logo with the gun I thought it was really cool, but also though the gun might seem inappropriate and in the back of my mind felt like it might change but I dismissed it because I'm so excited for the coaster. Now look, the gun is gone but it is replaced with a lantern which is also what a miner would have used so it completely works. I still like the logo but I think it was fine with the gun and imo as horrible as that tragedy is the logo should not be affected by it.... but whudda you gonna do.

So I keep forgetting, which group of seats on Delirium is the best? I remember getting some really good seats the last time I rode it.

Personally, we like to grab the seats facing out toward Boomerang Bay.

 

About the logo, he now looks more like a miner as much as I liked the pistol-wielding Stinky Pete. I was actually surprised that the initial logo had a gun especially with how people are these days about such content.

The seats right next to the exit are my favorite as the first half of the ride, you're low to the ground and when Delirium starts the full swings, you're facing upwards grabbing all that airtime.

You're right, I forgot that West had Flyers from day 1. It's rough but still early GCI, so I'd say it's likely an exception.

Older GCIs are rougher just because they are older (the ones that always had Flyers). If Apocalypse (SFMM) never gets re-tracked, it will have the same roughness as Roar West in 10 years. Heck, you even you can feel that Apocalypse is starting to become rough even after 3 years.
