Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

This is almost certainly a rehab job. Hopefully they will replace the LED lighting package - it looks really bad now.
It is doubtful this ride will be removed anytime soon. The space it occupies does not lend itself well to anything much larger. The only possibility would be if the Axis Arena were to be removed for a new attraction but that too is highly unlikely.

In other news, in the email newsletter they send, they reference opening day for the 2019 season in early March, which is the norm. I am actually surprised the park does not consider opening for a couple weekends before the Super Bowl, when nearly a million visitors will be in town, only 12 miles away.

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

^ Unusual to hear about the Joker downtime, especially after it was down for most of the season. And then the park teased us with a few weeks of operation towards the beginning of fall. Maybe they thought they fixed the problem, but upon daily operation again found that they were initially wrong???? :?r

I still haven't even ridden this attraction at my own home park yet. I went on one of these Larson loopers at Kemah Boardwalk a few years back so never felt the need. They were fine rides, and certainly feel less confining than the old Fireball loopers that had cages. To me, they still feel more claustrophobic than the former looping starship, or an inverted looper like Aero 360 at Kennywood.

Next year will not be a Six Flags year for me, so I hope to catch up with this park after our cross-country RV trip in a few years.

Peach out ATL.

So I've never really looked into SF memberships before, but next year I plan to hit up several starting with SFOG in April. Would there be any potential complications with buying a membership through SFOG even though I live in Oklahoma? It will be my first stop so I will activate and pick up the passes there. After the initial visit, there's no reason I would have to go back there, right? Doesn't look like you can get a membership through FC, and SFOT is difficult to get to from Tulsa, so I'm hoping I can grab the pass at SFOG and go.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

No. Your plan is totally fine.

Aren't there some benefits that can only be used at the "home" park?

I grabbed a membership in New England and there was some reason I changed it to Georgia (took some effort to get it cancelled/refunded so I could buy with SFOG as home park).

May not matter to Shavethewhales, but they should be aware of it.

I guess it's a moot point. I've been trying to two days now to get the website to load so I can buy a membership before the new year's deal expires, but nothing is working. I've tried multiple computers and browsers and even called technical support who were no help. Pretty frustrating. I'm inclined to just re-route to a different set of parks for this year since I have so many to get to anyway. Nothing like spending hours just to try to give someone else money.

I don't think so. Maybe if you want a dining plan for only your home park it might be an issue (maybe?) but otherwise I can't imagine there being any issues.

^Right...

We have used all of our membership bennifits at multiple six flags parks without issues.

Like Bill mentioned, maybe the dinning plan if it's not the chain wide dinning plan. Possibly may have an issue getting your yearly refillable cup as well but not sure.

May have been the bring a friend discounts, which I intended to use. But there was some reason I needed to switch.

I also noticed the prices vary across parks.
Memberships at SFOG are cheaper than SFNE.
