The butterfly element looks like it pull a lot of laterals. Does it?

It does not pull very high laterals from my experience, but it is very disorienting in a good way! You basically change direction four times. If you have been on Tennessee Tornado, its very similar to that vertical loop in my opinion, just with two loops instead of one.

My personal opinion of Ninja is that it is a great, unique and intense multi-looper that will hopefully live on for a long time. The refurbished Arrow trains have made the ride considerably smoother and they look great. It has a few kinks in the track, and it may provide headbanging to shorter guests, but I never have a problem with it and it's smoother than almost any Arrow or Vekoma looper I've ever been on.

It's actually more vertical gs than lateral. I haven't been on the butterfly on ninja, but I've been on the one on Tennessee tornado at Dollywood and the secion between the two inversions of the butterfly was one of the most forceful spots on a coaster I've ever been on.

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

^Tennessee Tornado doesn't have a butterfly element. It has a loop with twists at each of the vertical points, but it is only one inversion.

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

Just saw a new Trailer for VACATION! The park is definitely SFOG.

Thanks for mentioning that. I just watched it and I could not be more happy that it is SFOG! It actually looked like a surprisingly strong trailer to me...

^As someone who loves Ninja and thinks it gets way more hate than it should, I am so happy to see it as the featured coaster in the preview.

I found this interesting prediction of what Georgia Cyclone may look like if it gets the treatment. Very accurate.

I'm coming to visit SFOG from my home park of SFSTL. I was wondering if the park has "preferred parking" which is a parking lot closer to the entrance gate for a small additional fee.

Thanks in advance!!!

Why do I still have a donkey title???
