This is my first Trip Report...so take it easy on me

 

 

My friend and I decided to venture off to Dallas for the weekend and hit up SFOT. I reserved our Flash Pass online and when I went to pick it up the staff actually told me that the park would not be crowded and there would probably be no need for the Flash Pass. They also mentioned that I could go ahead and get a refund since the park was pretty much dead. Maybe the 105* heat (gotta love TX) was keeping people away. Also, Flashback was closed for the day...anyone know why?

 

 

Onto the rides -

 

Runaway Mountain - 1X - no wait - When we arrived to the empty station(this seemed to be the theme for the day) my friend mentioned how it reminded him of Mayan Mindbender at Astroworld. I completely forgot about that crazy drop in the middle of the ride and that caught us both by surprise. Nice family coaster but none of the effects seemed to be working. Last time I rode this, about 5 years ago, I remember music and little things like those red bat eyes on the lift. 6/10

 

 

Mr. Freeze - 3x - no wait - I forgot how much I loved this coaster! I'm not a fan of the new Superman colors though...I prefer the old colors. 8/10

 

 

Batman - 1x - 1 train wait - Such an intense little ride. I almost blacked out on both of the loops. 7/10

 

 

Superman - 1x - no wait - Nice pop of air at the top. Didn't this ride use to do the combo program? Only 2 towers were running. 7/10

 

 

Titan - 4x - 5 min wait for the front - no wait for the rest of the train - I rode this once when it first opened and man.... I forgot how crazy this ride was. That airtime hill is one of my favorite parts of any coaster. That first helix was too intense for me and the train completely stops on the MCBR really abruptly. You could hear everyone yell out when it slammed into the MCBR. Nice ride but you definitely have to take breaks in between rides. 9/10

 

Side-note: The staff was horrible on this ride. I noticed at least 2 different groups waiting by the exit gate with their flash pass visible and the staff completely ignored them and did not tell them that the flash pass entrance was located somewhere else.

 

El Asseradero Log Flume - 1x - 2 min wait - We needed to cool off because the heat was starting to get to us. Only one of the flumes was open. Nice relaxing log flume and we didn't get too wet. 6/10

 

La Vibora - 1x - 1 train wait - Cool concept but those turns into the brakes are killer. 5/10

 

 

Runaway Mine Train - 1x - no wait - I've always really enjoyed this coaster. The ending always catches me by surprise! 6/10

 

 

Texas Chute Out - 1x - no wait - I've never been on this before and saw that there was no wait. Nice breeze at the top! 5/10

 

 

Judge Roy Scream - 2x - no wait - Nice little outback coaster. Although I think this ride really needs to get re-tracked. It was shuffling all over the place. I love how it's across a lake and separate from the park. 6/10

 

Robots of Mars - 1x - no wait - Ummm.....WTF happened and why is this even here? This was the worst simulator/film I have ever been on. I'm sure the silence and confused looks of the other riders at the end said it all. 2/10

 

 

Roaring Rapids - 1x - no wait - We saw there was no line for this and thought we would cool off again. Yeah...lemme just say that the rapids seemed to be against me that day because I got SOAKED! 7/10

 

 

Oil Derrick Observation Tower - 1x - 2 min wait - We decided to take a break and check out the park from above and see what we wanted to ride next. Nice view from the top! 6/10

 

 

Shockwave - 1x - 1 train wait - I completely forgot about this ride until we saw it from the Oil Derrick. My friend mentioned it reminded him of a "bigger Viper at Astroworld". I also forgot how many pops of air you get on those drops! Those loops were pretty intense too. Awesome ride! 8/10

 

 

 

Onto the pics!

This drop is going to be pure bliss!

I see you Titan!

I almost completely blacked out on that helix the last time we rode. A kid behind me was complaining on the ride about his head hurting on this part as well.

Me on top of the Oil Derrick.

Loved Shockwave! We would of kept riding it since there was no line, but it was just getting too hot outside. Decided to call it a day!

Thanks for this. Great pictures! It has been a LONG LONG time since I've been to SFoT. Mr. Freeze was being built (gosh that makes me feel old.) I am really glad to see that the park is looking great. I remember it fondly.

 

I also dislike the new color scheme on Freeze. It should be ice blue, damnit!
