This isn’t too unusual based on SFMM’s history. They couldn’t even open a flat ride until mid July. Their last new ride that opened in the Spring was Twisted Colossus. Even YOLOcoaster didn’t open until late June.

I expect West Coast Racers to open in late June/early July at the earliest.

Just looking for an update on this? No one responded when I asked last week. Thanks in advance.


Found a link on the SFMM site (who would have guessed) it has all your perks listed for your level.

At the park now. Does anyone know what's going on with Crazanity? This is the third week in a row I've come and it's been closed with no crew.

Maybe one of the motors up top broke. That seems to be the area they’ve been working on.

That is indeed the case. The swinging motor failed on Tuesday, January 8th in the middle of a cycle. This left the frisbee full of passengers free-swinging for about 20 min until it finally lost momentum and came to a halt.
Yes, I did witness this and I do have video saved on my phone of the incident. This will probably be a lengthy fix.

Saw it run two test cycles this afternoon...

So today was the first day of them using the watches as the flash pass. Took me an hour to get my flash passes as they were having trouble with the system. Accesso(sp) was on hand helping with problems. It took 30 min to get in the gate and an hour in flash pass so i did not get going till noon. It was a fun day though.

That’s good. Perhaps won’t take much longer to repair after all.

I'm surprised the ride doesn't have an emergency brake for situations like that.
