TEXAS GIANT BASH - MAY 14,2011

Wow, what a weekend! I'd like to start by thanking Robb for putting together such an awesome event. Everything from ERT to TPR Trivia was wonderful. And for anyone who hasn't gone to a TPR event before, GO NOW! I've never had so much fun in my life!

 

The SFOT TR is going to be mainly text, but I do have a few pictures that I'll post at the end. Well, let's get started!

 

From the minute I arrived at the park, I knew it was going to be a great day. We couldn't have asked for better weather. I started out the day with a few rides on the New Texas Giant, which was AMAZING by the way! After a few rides on that, we headed over to Titan for some more ERT goodness. At 10, we picked up our Flash Passes. Sadly, the line for Flash Passes had already developed into a human centipede, so we wound up missing Q&A On the bright side, the rest of the day was awesome! And guess what - FLUME 1 WAS OPEN!!! For those of you who don't know, this is a VERY rare occurrence. Anyways, TPR trivia was awesome, and night ERT was even better than morning ERT! Despite Shockwave breaking down, it was still an amazing night considering Texas Giant ERT was AMAZING. No lines whatsoever! Now for a few less general ride reviews:

 

Titan: Oh my god, this ride was awesome! The 25-story first drop didn't disappoint, and the ride had a decent amount of air throughout its layout. The G's on the upward helix were insane! I couldn't get enough of this coaster.

 

Mine Train: This family coaster packs quite a punch, especially for being one of the first steel coasters. The surprise drop got me every time, and the tunnels definitely upped the thrill level!

 

Mini Mine Train: A smaller version of Mine Train. Pretty good for a classic kiddie coaster.

 

Big Spin (Pandemonium): Pretty good coaster. The drops/helix can really take you by surprise, especially if you're facing backwards! And it actually spun Overall a great ride.

 

Judge Roy Scream: The Judge is now the only wooden coaster at SFOT, and it sure is good! While it's nothing crazy (just an out-and-back coaster), it wasn't too rough and I even caught some air on a few of the hills! I feel like this classic coaster will be around for years to come.

 

Batman: The Ride: To my surprise, Batman was running a lot rougher than it was last year. The first time I've ever gotten my head thrown around that much on a B&M. It wasn't bad, it was just more "meh" than I remember.

 

Mr. Freeze: Freeze is AWESOME! The speedy launch is amazing. The top hat immediately following the launch was my favorite part of the ride. I loved the overbanked turn. After all of this was over, we got to do it all again - BACKWARDS! Premier really made a winner with this one!

 

La Vibora: One of the three Intamin bobsleds in existence. La Vibora was actually running a lot smoother this season. While the brake runs hurt like hell in previous seasons, they were barely noticeable this weekend! Awesome ride.

 

Flashback: Okay. I'm a Texas local, and I visit the park at least two times a year. I've actually avoided this ride for years because of the horrid reviews I read about it. Actually, this boomerang was pretty decent, but I won't be riding Flashback again anytime soon.

 

Runaway Mountain: Since a few lights were actually on during my ride, I can back up the statement that Runaway Mountain is inspired by the Windstorm coasters. While it is a fairly short ride, it was pretty good. The helix was very forceful and the drop really catches you by surprise!

 

Shockwave: Two words can sum up this ride: FREAKING AMAZING! For those of you who don't know, Shockwave still runs with lap bars only! There was plenty of airtime to be had on the hills, and the consecutive loops were packed with G's. Anton really did an awesome job on this coaster!

 

New Texas Giant: Oh. My. God. NTAG was AWESOME!!! When Robb said that there were 14 moments of air on the ride, he sure as hell wasn't lying! It doesn't really matter where you sit. The first drop was one of the most intense drops I've ever experienced. The hill followed by the vertically-banked turn proved to be one of the most forceful parts of the ride! Another drop and vertical turn immediately followed. After this came the overbanked turn complete with head choppers, which was awesome! It almost felt as if you were going upside down. The hill right before the non-functional brake run was the most intense part of the ride. You seriously caught some amazing air! After the brakes came another drop and an airtime hill. Next was what I like to call the "surprise drop", since the airtime really surprised me! The remainder of the ride consisted of tunneled airtime hills, which were great. NTAG was definitely a re-ride! Definitely in my top 5.

 

Now on to the pics!

Judge has taken over the job of "Paint Shaker The Ride" from Texas Gaint quite well, If you look you can see were they have started retracking, so far it only gose from the station up to the lift and in a few other spots. Im gald to hear every one got a ride on, Paper Clip the Ride "Mr Freeze". I wasent able to make it out to sandy lake but being another park I have grown up with I cant wait to see the photos.

Thanks for posting, everyone!

 

So, I gather you liked NTAG then?

Heck yes, it was great! I'll definitely be up there again soon to ride it

 

Glad to see that Judge wasn't "too rough." You must've ridden near the front. Two weeks ago I rode the back seat and experienced a ride awful enough to end my SFOT day early. Jackhammering almost as bad as SOB on every single drop.

I've ridden in the back before, and I agree that it really hurts. I did ride towards the front this time, and it was a decent ride. It all depends on where you sit.

^He liked it so much that it made it into every picture!

Dude, stop giving the kid crap...he's got PLENTY of photos of New Texas Giant in his report!

We arrived at the park at about 11 Sunday morning. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by Sandy Lake's lineup and quality. While it is mainly a picnic grove and kiddie park, Sandy Lake has a few thrill rides, an awesome old dark ride, and a good little kiddie coaster! Ticket and refreshment prices were very reasonable. On to the pics!

A kid almost drowned under me at that Sandy Lake pool when I was a kid. The pool used to have these cinder block retaining walls separating the deep section from the shallow sections. The walls had square cutouts and apparently some kid stuck his arm through a hole while under water and couldn't get it out again. A lifeguard had to go down and basically break his arm to get him out. After some CPR I vaguely remember him coming back, but I don't remember ever going back there to swim!

 

Sandy Lake is a very basic family park, so don't believe that you missed anything if you weren't able to make it there.

The Pretzel dark ride was really neat. I had a very long conversation with Jeff, the operator. He said he was 81 and has worked at the park for 17 years. We talked about everything from the weather to technical stats. I found out the ride was relocated from Tulsa, OK, and that there are still 2 original tricks on the ride! He gave us a lights-on tour of the ride, which was awesome!

While the ride still had a few original tricks, the park did a good job of incorporating new props to keep the thrill level up! Also, Jeff had a wolf mask he used to scare the kids who came out thinking the ride wasn't scary!

I'm pretty sure this is licensed!

 

Overall, I had a wonderful weekend! More trip reports coming this summer!

A kid almost drowned under me at that Sandy Lake pool when I was a kid. The pool used to have these cinder block retaining walls separating the deep section from the shallow sections. The walls had square cutouts and apparently some kid stuck his arm through a hole while under water and couldn't get it out again. A lifeguard had to go down and basically break his arm to get him out. After some CPR I vaguely remember him coming back, but I don't remember ever going back there to swim!

 

Sandy Lake is a very basic family park, so don't believe that you missed anything if you weren't able to make it there.

Actually, I'd say the dark ride is very unique.

If by unique you mean old. I think I had the same operator on it though when I was at the park about a month ago. He wore the wolf mask and nearly gave me a heart attack at the end of the ride.

Yes he put it on his hand and stuck it in my face as soon as the ride's last doors opened. Easily the most scared I've been on any dark ride, especially because when you see the last set of doors with sunlight peeking through you tend to completely let your guard down.

I agree with most of your SFOT reviews, although I love their Batman and I also kinda like Flashback.

 

I clearly missed a lot of Sandy Lake! But I did get to experience the legendary wolf mask, which was quite the fright! I'd love to return for a more complete visit at some point.

Batman: The Ride: To my surprise, Batman was running a lot rougher than it was last year. The first time I've ever gotten my head thrown around that much on a B&M. It wasn't bad, it was just more "meh" than I remember.

Batman was running really bad I would say worst B&M I have ever been on. I don't know what happened but it was running way better in 2010

It wasn't the worst IMO, but it was definitely running rougher than 2010.

Also Mini Mine Train was running Astroworld's old Serpent train

That was awesome!

Be sure and wear a TPR shirt! I had 2 really great conversations with park employees just because of my shirt.

Hey guys! I've been away for some time now, and I'm finally going to some more parks! Those two parks will be SFFT and SeaWorld San Antonio. I'll be visiting them this week. But before I go, I have one quick question. I haven't been to SFFT since I was very young, so I'm not sure how to correctly sequence the rides in order to avoid terribly long lines. In other words, what should I do first? I'm thinking Superman at the moment, as I've heard the line can get pretty long for that. I'm going on a Tuesday, so crowds should be fairly light. So, what should I do right when the park opens? Thanks!

When the park opens ride Poltergeist, then head up to Superman, then over to Rattler which opens an hour late usually. Polty only runs one train on week days so I'd do that first. SKC will have 2 (the only coaster with 2) so the line should be no big deal. Rattler will run 1 or 2 but the line is always the longest, so as soon as it you see it run head over to it.

 

Goliath, Boomerang, RRE, and Pandemonium will be no problem after you ride those three. Just ride Boom and Goliath later in the day as everyone heads their first.

 

I would say good luck, but you'll still have no problem getting on all the coasters. Rattler should be the only line you encounter really.
