Not gonna lie....I have no idea who Grid is....lol

Grid is the Earth-3 (Crime Syndicate) counterpart of Cyborg. He's basically Bizarro Cyborg, but he's not. He resembles some skull robot thing. And he has the sexiest voice. At least to me.

mary.pesik, this is the 3rd time I have posted a quote of yours on the "Dumbest things Ever said on TPR Thread". As of right now, there are literally 3 on the same page. You don't think that you should improve how you conduct yourself on TPR? Nobody cares about the specifics of the Cyborg franchise here. We don't want to hear from cringey 16 year old fangirls. We just want to talk about the park and its attractions.

Basically. She keeps talking about how "sexy" the characters and their voice actors are. Not even just 1 or 2 posts. Like, way too much about obsessing over her fictional crushes when people just want to talk about the park. Just check out the past handful of pages to see what I mean.

Dude, she's a kid, just move on. Yeah, what she's saying is annoying and irrelevant to the topic at hand, but your increasingly obsessive mad-on for her is every bit as disruptive and, frankly, inappropriate. I posted tons of stupid things on message boards when I was sixteen, and even when I look back at some of those archived posts, the only thing more childish than my posts were the overly angry adult posters who would not let go of how bad my posts were.

Let’s just all leave her alone now but this message board is for SFNE discussion, not DC Comics

Not gonna lie....I’m more of a Marvel dude just cuz MCU movies are killing it compared to DCEU stuff but when it comes to SFNE it doesn’t really matter to me....I just need to know if Supe and WC and Batman and Riddler are running fast and hot.....that’s all that really matters....

Since I didn't make it to opening weekend, I couldn't pass up the chance to visit today with such beautiful weather. A lot of people did the same; this was easily the most packed I've ever seen the park before Memorial Day.

 

As previously mentioned in this thread, Chop Six replaced Panda Express. While I personally am not a fan of Chinese food, I definitely support there being another restaurant included with the meal plan.

 

Mobile ordering wasn't quite ready to go on the mobile app, but they promise it's coming soon. I'm really intrigued to see how well it's implemented since it works like a dream at Disney.

No more Panda Express.

 

The former Hall of Justice is bare outside of a banner advertising the new Cyborg ride. Based on the park's recent track record I fully expect them to have this open right around Memorial Day weekend.

Rumor has it, the ride is inside and testing. The building still needs the signage added.

 

Also new for 2019... Goliath has a brand new rehab sign. The colors really pop and the wrench icon is a nice touch.

Another year, another year with Goliath closed.

1238226508_GoliathRehabSign(New).thumb.JPG.46abe103bca1c923756b4c07b9bab412.JPG

Fancy new rehab sign.

 

If you preferred the old one, rest assured you can still find it by the ride's exit.

 

212883063_OldSign.thumb.jpg.3a9ed1ea26aca6bca71821238a140d78.jpg

Or all you traditionalists can find the old one by the exit.

 

Technically the ride would be able to run today considering it's an unseasonably warm 75 degrees, but the train isn't even on the track and I spotted some rails lying on the ground next to the ride.

 

2143688124_GoliathRails(Close).thumb.JPG.5355d3e8778f9fa0bd79e2b89452a8b2.JPG

Note the rails on the ground.

 

Superman and Wicked Cyclone were really cranky today. Superman went down for 2-3 hours this afternoon and Wicked Cyclone kept opening and closing non-stop.

 

But both were riding very well. Superman tends to run noticeably slower in the spring and fall, but it absolutely hauls in the summer. I'm happy to say this is the fastest I've seen it run this time of year. Ungodly airtime in the first half and very strong pops in the second half.

 

Plus Superman's crew was flying today. I think the supervisor was a fellow coaster enthusiast (he recognized my Copperhead Strike shirt) and he was telling everyone the train would leave in 45-50 seconds. And for the most part, the crew was ready to send the next train out when the previous one hit the brakes.

Wicked Cyclone was running great as well. It's easy to tell when this ride is running quick since you get a powerful burst of air entering the brake run. I still think Wicked Cyclone is the park's best overall ride, but a front row on Superman beats it.

Because the two headliners were having so much downtime, I finished in the South End. I honestly can't remember the last time I did that, but Harley Quinn is arguably the park's best flat and I do enjoy Joker, Batman, and Riddler.

Such a pretty sky.

 

Overall it was a good day even though crowds and uptime weren't quite what I hoped for. The most surprising thing for me today was how fast dispatches were. And I found a Road Runner plush.

Being stuck in this lot gave me time to write this. I forgot just how long it takes to get out of this lot on a busy day. It took me over an hour.

They seem to be running a different type of wheels on Superman this season as these ones are yellow instead of the normal blue ones. And I very much agree it’s running faster now than I can ever remember it this early in the year. If it keeps up come summer time the thing will be an absolute rocket ship.

@Canobie Coaster, I think that was me who recognized your shirt! Not a supervisor though, just simply a team member. Thanks so much for mentioning our operations. It's still early in the season, so no crew is going to be perfect, but we're trying our best, and the announcements to when the train will be leaving are definitely helping speed thing up. As for the park being pack, I was shocked at how busy it was, as one week before, Superman barely had a line! Thanks again for the nice words about the Superman crew!

You're very welcome! Even with a full queue for the front row, it was only taking about 20 minutes. Usually it takes 30-40 minutes so I appreciate the speed.

 

Any guesses about when Goliath gets out of rehab?

 

Last year was a particularly bad year for the coaster, but I believe they tend to get it running in May.

I agree! I'm excited to see just how fast this thing will get in the summer.

No, but when it opens I give it a solid 3 days of semi-consistent operation before going back into rehab for the remainder of the season.

Oh come on! I want a Road Runner plush too!

 

I read from SFNEOnline forums they are testing the Cyborg ride in the building now. I'm not the one to tell you to go look in the window or put your ear to it, but I know VIP day is May 29th and therefore it is actually opening in June like last year's Cyborg ride.

Oh I forgot to mention that the small rails on the grass in the photo might be from the station in order to take off the train. I read this on reddit though so take it with a grain of salt.

Wicked Cyclone has been down most of today. They took the blue train off to glue padding back on the front seat. Now they're cycling orange but its throwing up some error code that the mechanics are trying to figure out. This is going to be my first coaster of the season, I'm not giving up! They're going to drag me out of here kicking and screaming if I don't get my ride on this!!

Read that WC was having issues today but we got on relatively painlessly around 2:30ish.....both trains were running and the only problem really was that people with “priority” boarding passes from the exit lane kept taking front row seats....that’s annoying AF - especially when you’re paying a premium to have the flash pass....had to wait three trains.....anyway the ride was flying....anybody know the actual issue today that I’ve read about on here?

 

Got on Supe today also and man that thing seems like it’s flying already this early season....that ride is amazing really....I know folks hate the restraints but it’s really not a thing.....I never rode it when it had the T-bar.....saw on here that they’re using these new wheels - yellow instead of blue - and maybe that’s helping.....so far this early season we’ve had great rides on that thing.....such an awesome ride.....

 

Joker is slowly growing on me.....rose it maybe 5 or 6 times now and it’s definitely good and I like how you never get the same ride....you can always count on a hair raiser inversion at least once.....where you’d totally fall out if not for the restraint.....

 

Also we went on Houdini today for the first time since we had passes in 2015.....can someone go over that ridiculous ride....how do they do that? You never upside down so the outer shell must be rotating also....thatbrode is weird AF....

 

And Goliath is still down.....lol....poor Goliath though....

You've basically got the idea.

 

Wikipedia[/url]"]

Madhouses are often extensively themed during the ride sequence, and usually in the queue line. Several Madhouses feature pre-shows explaining a story behind the ride. Once in the ride, lapbars are lowered onto the riders, before they gradually experience an odd sense of movement. This is achieved through two mechanisms - the separate floor can move in a controlled swing from side-to-side by up to 15/30 degrees in each direction, but the surroundings of the room can rotate through a full 360 degrees. The pivot mechanism for the floor is hidden by two large objects at the end of the room, which are themed to match the ride.

 

At this point, both the floor and the room are slowly moving in unison. As the ride continues, the floor starts a separate movement from the rotating drum which gradually gives the impression that the room is rotating backwards and forwards further each time. Vekoma offers theme parks the option of programming their own sequence of how the room and floor move. In many Madhouses, the lighting subtly changes from moment to moment to add to the disorientation. Eventually, the drum mechanism turns through a full rotation and, by careful synchronisation with the sensation of the swinging floor mechanism, the riders are fooled into feeling as if they themselves are being repeatedly turned upside down.

Oh my gosh yes! Those flipping priority pass people were everywhere!! If I hadn't payed for the Platinum Flash Pass I would have been crazy annoyed with all the priority pass vultures!

 

As for the issue with WC, the lapbars on the orange train were throwing some weird sensor issues. When it came back in the station the ops would have to pull all the bars up and the computer was throwing an error code that the mechanic didn't know (I'm assuming) because he had to take a photo of the control panel and go research the solution.

 

So the blue train was taken off to glue padding on the front seat, then the orange train was throwing a tantrum and by the time they figured out the orange train, the glue had set on blue so they put it back on the track.

 

It took about an hour all together, it just sucks as it happened just as I was next in line for front row first ride of the year. So I was shaking like a junkie looking for his next fix of RMC goodness and the downtime just added to the insanity of my withdrawal symptoms!

 

Then just as the mechanic was finishing on WC he got a call that Flashback was down. Which is a funny story because for the past decade, every time I would go to the park Flashback would close and stay closed all day. Usually this would happen as I was in line for it or walking toward it (no lie)! Flashback was the only credit in the park I had yet to get and it did the same thing on me yesterday! So I was bummed thinking it was gonna stay closed for the rest of the day, then just as I was leaving the park and my final ride on WC, Flashback opened and I FINALLY jumped on it and was thoroughly disappointed as I knew I would be!
