Yes they do. Yesterday they said "Attention, you will be dropping momentarily. Be ready to drop! Then after another 45 seconds or so, it dropped randomly and actually scared me!


That would still scare the crap out of me. The worst part about drop towers to me is the anticipation - not knowing what "soon" means would be terrible! (But I'd love it once I was on the ground and would be ready to go again.)

All rumours thus far. Truthfully, no ones knows anything about this ride yet. What if the loop is like the inverted loop on Superman (SFDK) ?

It's so unfair to already be judging a ride before it's even announced.

I can see where we're headed. "Ugh, I'm not looking forward to whatever "park A" builds in 2016, it's going to suck! :lol:

Hi! I have been following this "discussion" for over half a year but never posted. While I live in northern california, I come down to SFMM all of the time. I am going next monday, and was wondering if this was the best day of the week to go. I was thinking of going to LL:DOD first, use the single rider line, and then head over towards batman and just go around the park that way. Every other time I have been here, I have gotten to the park right when it opened, and booked it to X2, then Tatsu. Which way should I do it this time? Should i go on monday? :p

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

I don't know how many times I've had to say this, but just because it has inversions, that doesn't mean it can't have airtime. You can have both!

If you're going to use the single rider line, there's no point in going there first. If I'm not mistaken, the single rider line is not very long. (I could be wrong though, having never been on LL:DOD)

For the international fellow, Monday would probably be better because people are heading home from vacation, but it will still have fair crowds. Labor Day kids are actually still out of school...

Thanks for all the answers. I've also asked Six Flags customer services and they said Monday they're expecting less crowd in the park he doesn't even told me about Flash Pass in his answer.

I think we will try without Gold Flash Pass first, see how it is and hoping there will be still left in case of crowd coming. And I'll ride as single rider many time because my sweetie will probably don't dear to do rides like LL, X2 or Tatsu. You speak about single rider line for LL, do you know if there is also a single rider line for X2, Tatsu and other major rides? so I can ride them faster while my sweetie wait me. (I'm a big fan of single rider lines, when I'm at a park with my brother many time we use it to re-ride faster).

I'm very excited for this visit, following by Knott's Berry Farm on Wednesday and Universal studios on Thursday.

Rides that have single rider lines:

Green Lantern

Drop of Doom

Riddlers Revenge

Viper

Revolution.


Neither X2 or Tatsu have them.
Apollos Chariot #1!

It was a great adventure for me, the weather should not be too bad, it will probably packed like it always is at Fright Fest but it's well worth it. But take my advice, RIDE X2 FIRST! If you don't you might not get a ride because of tee 3-4 hour line.

Maybe I should of worded this better. What I meant was that the Mountain was once again making the "loop" a possible centerpiece to the ride. Inversions seem to be the "big thing"to the the big wigs. But with the ride rumored to go on Log Jammers site, I'm sure it will have lots of sexy intamin curves :lover: . I'm thinking that it will be something similar to cheetah hunt, minus the theming. Or maybe a older cousin of Furius Baco :br
