Buckaroo heads to SFMM after work, hilarity ensues


Recommended Posts

So some backstory on this: i had to work in valencia in the industrial park just north of Six Flags, however i got done super early, and didnt want to drive back home only to have to drive into LA for my other job. Solution: Kill time at six flags.

all trips to SFMM start the same way for me, having to drive through the god forsaken Newhall Pass, where people stop for no reason at all.

Oh X2, your slow dispaches means i never get a pic with the train as i drive up the hill.

 

Actually thats not fully true, they were dispaching fairly well today.Im just unlucky.

Oh Hai gravel parking lot (this is a bad sign)

You know its a bad sign when you can get this shot of Scream!

 

It was about this point when i wished the parking lot was actually the beach from the Step by Step opening credits. And who the hell does opening credits with a theme park then doesnt have a theme park as any part of the show. Stupid.

Well this looks promising, no one in the Ninja Line.

 

Ninja was actually running well, yet somehow even in the back row i get wet. Stupid JetStream.

I spy with my little eye a GCI.

Cuz THIS isnt creepy at all.

 

I know this violates the circle rule, but after Apocolynator i went to green lantern on the advice of a single serving friend in line who told me it wasnt stopping on the mid course. It was true, it was actually dispaching fairly well (for that kind of ride), and they didnt force our car to be balanced, so i had a fairly crazy ride with just me on one side and 2 acers on the other. we came into the station still flipping. Good times. However i have some advice for the men out there, wear a cup, GL is brutal to the manly bits.

in all his green shiny goodness.

Next was battyman, and the line started here. Luckly batman is a good moving line

 

IMAG0177.thumb.jpg.b47fb4dd0e8b96890a21e57a55084374.jpg

batman was running great, as usual

 

After batman was lunch, and i do have to say with the departure of Papa Johns, the pizza has gotten much better. the price was still a little steep, but for the quality of food, i wasnt angry that i dropped 8 bucks on a decent sized slice of pizza and some cheese bread. Ive paid more in downtown, and at airports for worse quality. However i was starving, so i didnt take a pic of the food. Also 99 cent refills on the big red cup, yes please!

 

Next was scream!

Green Lantern from Scream!

 

IMAG0174.thumb.jpg.3411e46e5a649ed4ace279fa13507eb7.jpg

As you can see from the empty seats, its a normal empty day on scream!

 

IMAG0179.thumb.jpg.4618f1384554a2111edc29d994396840.jpg

After Scream i was ready for some shade, and what better line for shade than Goliaths Jungle of a line!

 

IMAG0180.thumb.jpg.408dcaae9fb48f3c5fe4be1604b6018b.jpg

It really does have an impressive looking lift and drop. Still one of my faves at the park, i know there are better hypers out there, but this one is mine!

 

IMAG0184.thumb.jpg.9113d5a20b80fb19a4a40d4bf7379129.jpg

the line was filled with these adds for Tera Nova, which was somewhat fitting as these warning signs, being jungle themed and all. Not as annoying as the stride viper train.

 

IMAG0185.thumb.jpg.c64e2f43e03b13e72a9e45be08066ec5.jpg

After Goliath, a little stop by the Mother Schwarzkopf for some prayer. And with a line like this, i rode it twice without getting my butt outta the seat

 

IMAG0186.thumb.jpg.02c2126393b6abe6c599de54ed22f4ed.jpg

Viper always looks cool doing this.

 

IMAG0188.thumb.jpg.2c701d87467a10a98ffee9649525ed69.jpg

the X dispach Clock, they were pretty balls accurate on dispach except when people were being stupid, so they missed it twice while i was in the station.

 

After this my phone went to below 15 percent, so ill summarize. Did Deja Vu, right after it just started working again from a breakdown. Then did a nightride on Apoclinator. Then i went to sling drinks all night long. Great day i have to say!.

Terra Nova is really whoring themselves out. They were also sponsoring the dig area of the new Dinosaur upcharge at Kings Island.

 

Its kinda interesting for fox to be pimping out a semi-scifi show. But then i still have a grudge against them for firefly.

 

This isn't the William Hung of TRs. For a express TR, it actually delivers. Nice job.

 

I was seriously about to just take pics up to the front gate then stop. But i realized that was lame.

I like your trip report! Looks like a pretty decent afternoon, despite cars being all the way out in the gravel lot.

 

However, after being on the two east coast TPR trips, and with SFMM being my home park, I don't see myself going back to that place for a long time - perhaps not until WCB 2012.

 

Is that a bad thing? I guess I just don't feel excited about going to there to be inundated with ads every five feet, paying $15 for a meal, etc..

Another day another random lets go to SFMM trip.

 

This one does not have NEARLY the amount of pics i wanted, due to a network issue with Sprint, my phones battery died extra quick, so i now share with you the pics and video i managed to get while at SFMM yesterday:

 

First off, i must show you difinitive proof that GL does not stop on the MCBR anymore:

Im going to let you in on a secret. This exists for Riddlers Revenge. You can send all thanks and praise to Dan, cuz the man deserves it.

Goodbye Freefall, we hardly knew yeee. Also, this ditch could totally be utilized for an Aquazone type attraction, just pipe into the Tidal Wave lake.

This should be on the backside of your ticket, and you should have to sign it to show you read it, along with a liability release saying if your too stupid to realize that roller coasters are fast and if you jump a fence to get your hat you might die, so dont sue us for your own stupidity.

I totally understand the feeling. I get it time and time again when we return here after a trip visiting a ton of interesting parks.
