^I'd look to someone who's more a "regular" at this park for better answers. . but since SFOT went to Year Round Operations (mostly weekends on off months tho), not sure they have a set maintenance sc

They tested the system for 1 weekend.  Hasn't been back since and currently no plans to bring it back.  

^Thanks for telling me that! I had watched a blog where they had it but hadn't seen any confirming they weren't using it. Thanks Bert425 for the input too!

How did they end up getting the train over the Raven drop, since the crane didn't work?

 

Pretty sure the crane worked just fine... That's why the train isn't still up there.

 

Or... another strong wind came and just pushed it right on up and over.

At the park now. Joker closed due to high winds.

So they're not taking any chances with these 4Ds now Wasn't the one at Great America also closed a few days ago for wind? I wonder if they'll re-consider purchasing more of these...

If you were planning a trip to the park in August, re-check the operating schedule as things have changed (reduced hours/days). Consider coming in October instead, more operating days added.

I was at the park for the first time yesterday and got to ride joker. It was unique and fun, but not worth a line any longer than 15 minutes. It is just completely outshined by some of the park's other coasters. (NTG, Titan, Shockwave). Speaking of which, there was a power outage yesterday morning that had all the rides closed until around noon. Is that frequent or normal?

^That is most definitely not normal! In,fact, I can't even remember the last time an outage like that happened. As far as Joker, you didn't specify as to which side you rode- green/purple. The green side is much more intense than the purple. Also, each ride on Joker is different than the last due to weight distribution having a profound effect on the car's spinning and rocking! I rode Joker 11 times on VIP Day and let me tell you that no two rides were alike!

Yep, that's the best thing about new rides! They draw crowds away from the older stuff! Did you ride Riddler or Catwoman?

 

Unfortunately no. Riddler had a long line that stretched out of the entrance, and catwoman broke down right before I rode.

I'll be in the park tomorrow for a few hours in the afternoon. We have some business in Dallas, so I figured, why not get in to try and ride my first S&S Free Spin, and probably try to get a ride on NTAG and Mr. Freeze as well!

A friend of mine and I are planning a visit on Friday, June 23. Could anyone make a guess about how crowded the park will be that day?

How about the order in which to ride things? I was thinking possibly Shock Wave first since VR makes that line move slowly. Any other tips would be appreciated. Thanks.

I don't know much about the crowds, but I recommend doing Titan later in the day because it doesn't get that long of a line. Also, I don't think they are running VR on Shockwave. If you want to do La Vibora I would probably do that first. When I went I ate at JB's BBQ for lunch and it was pretty good for amusement park food.

In case anyone is interested:

 

Would you please let me know whether Shock Wave has virtual reality this season? Thanks.

Thank you for contacting Six Flags regarding your concern. They do have virtual reality on Shockwave this season

I'll be out at the park later today with some friends. Wednesday's usually aren't that crowded, so I expect to get in lots of rides on pretty much everything. Well, except kiddie rides of course!
