Park President Jeffrey Siebert has been sharing some wonderful pictures online! (I did mention to him I was going to post them here at TPR)  

^ I think it's a sign Hell has frozen over, and maybe the GOP Senators will vote to convict

Now, Bill. . you have to search for the clinical term:  "Blueprints shaped like penis"

Well, the "not in Georgia" clue eliminates it simply being a DC Kids area re-brand, so that's something. I like both the Sky Roller idea, and that other crazy looking Zamperla that's at Coney Island! Either would be a great, unique addition, to what I already consider the best SF park!

Hmmmmmm, POWER, SPEED? Illinois isn't highlighted among states where this doesn't exist. Maybe an S&S launched??

But Utah is. That's where S&S is located.

You should have a great time at the commercial shoot. I was lucky enough to be a part of the commercial shoot for Twisted Colossus at SFMM a few years and absolutely loved it. SF really treated us really well, feeding us breakfast and lunch as well as snacks later in the day. During the day I was at the shoot, I got about 20 rides on TC (and it was about 2 weeks before it opened to the public). When the shoot was over, they gave us a complementary ticket that could be used any day during the season. It was a really fun experience and I'd love to do it again sometime.

There's also one in Missouri, which is highlighted too.

Having ridden Clockworkz at Coney Island, I don't think it could be that. It's mesmerizing off-ride, but I wouldn't say the ride had any speed or power to it. That's more of a family ride.

back from a very full day.

 

5 rides on DC SuperVillian Swings (SO happy to have this ride back in operation. .and tho the pics I've seen of the white lighting left me a little underwhelmed? they turn blue while riding. . gives off an ominous glow.

 

9 rides on Joker (which, while it doesn't have any real forces from "spinning" gives some amazing pops of airtime. . and the velocity of that swing, holy hell! utterly fantastic). . . . but the star of the show? the funhouse queue.

 

They built a freaking mini-haunt, with sliding doors opening into other rooms, and gimmicks all over the place! You go thru in groups of 5 or 6, controlled by an operator at the front of the funhouse.

 

Bravo to SFFT. . . an incredible addition.

 

Spent a good 4 hours after the filming wrapped enjoying the park - which ended up with walk ons for almost everything, as Joker, once opened to the general public at 3, drew the crowds & the lines).

 

great day! (and yes, they gave us two tickets for any day to bring folks to the park, as well as a meal voucher for dinner (which I didn't end up using, as we finished early enough was able to use my dining plan ). . they provided light snacks thruout. .but nothing "meaty" - as was explained, we're going to be riding spinning things, so they wanted to cut down on any issues.

 

Hysterically, Joker has hoses at every corner of the ride pad! LOL.. . (tho during the filming, only had ONE shut down for cleanup from a protein spill)

Hello All. Newb here. My guess with all the gear clues is the Nebulaz. like this...[youtu_be]

[/youtu_be] Small footprint so I guess the ride removal clues are just to gauge the popularity of things.

^ I do wonder how fast they can run this thing? Apparently, the opinions here are that the one in Luna Park moves too slow to be considered "thrilling." Near misses at a higher speed might correct that, yes? No?

I can't imagine this much teasing leading to a small flat ride like that. My guess is either a large, unique flat ride of some sort or (dare I say) a roller coaster. He keeps saying "not ONE here" implying that it is a single ride/attraction and not an expansion or new area.

 

I would say that thinking this is a roller coaster is kinda crazy since they just got Wonder Woman, but then I remembered how they built coasters in 2013, 2015, and 2018, so saying they might build one in 2020 isn't too far out there. Six Flags really spoils this park quite a bit!

some "official" pics of Joker from the shoot yesterday (posted by Richard Schwartz, who took them from the top of the lookout - the same place I went a couple of weeks back on our Cliff Walk tour during Coasting for Kids event).

 

He gave permission to "share wherever we wanted"

 

the resolution when he zooms in isn't great, but I'm top dead center in the Red shirt, dark shorts - nearly upside-down

The phone number that Fiesta Texas usually uses to tease their new rides has been updated. The new message is almost a minute long. After listening, I think that Crackaxle Canyon will be getting the new ride (whatever that ride may be, I have no clue).

Anyways, give yourself a listen. I’m curious to see what y’all think. The number is (210) 697-5478.
