It really does suck. One careless woman and not only is the ride shut down for everyone else (maybe permanently) but look at the money it will cost the park. Truly bad luck for SFSTL, when there was apparently no wrongdoing on their part. They probably won't but I hope they fight her in court instead of just giving in and settling. Wonder if that will impact future decisions on new rides for us?
Yes, Xcalibur is still closed, along with Colossus and Shazam. Also, Tsunami Soaker and Fireball have been closed a lot recently. Fireball doesn't even have the train on it anymore. Tsunami Soaker has been down for about a week or so.

Tsunami Soaker is just down for staffing reasons as far as I know. Obviously Fireball is getting work done - wonder if something broke or if there was a change made for the larger model in Chicago that they've decided to pull in and use on ours.
I hate saying this, but this year has been one of the worst I've seen in 15 years. The 2018 season is a wash, SFSTL staff is doing everything in their power to try, but corporate doesn't seem to care to help and give the proper resources and funding. Lets hope with all the down time this year, that everything is ready to go for 2019.... smh
I was at the park today. The lines were very manageable due to it being so hot and the majority of the crowd being at the water park. A few notes:
I did not notice if Typhoon Twister was operating. But as has been mentioned before, Fireball, Excalibur, Colossus, and Shazam were all closed.
Food lines were the most managable I have seen them in years! (I still left the park to eat though).
So many of the buildings are looking terrible! Siding fading and falling off and roofs literally crumbling! I dont get why things are left to such a state.
I had a parking entrance attendant try to charge me to re-enter the parking lot! He scanned my membership card and said "you have already used this today". I told him I left to eat, and that is my membership pass. He then asked me for my reciept from my previous entry. I told him I didnt get one. I then reiterated that I have a membership and it includes parking. He then hesitantly told me to go on. I have NEVER experienced anything like that before. I dont even know what to make of it. I mean, is communication throughout the park employees really THAT Bad?
