Just finished a fun day at SFA! Probably going to put up a TR at some point, but I’ll post the key takeaways here for now:

Firebird is fun in the back and a great improvement over Apocalypse
Batwing is still down
Everything was running two trains (even ME)
Wild One is perhaps a bit bumpier than usual, but is hauling like mad
New bathrooms are open, men’s room has two urinals, two stalls, two sinks (didn’t check women’s obviously)
Wild One, Roar, and Firebird each had technical difficulties that required both trains be emptied and cycled a couple times before resuming operations
Significant crowds, but line still manageable
Red train seems to be running best on Superman, but I only tried the Blue train in 2nd row whereas I rode the red train in 1st row
Tip: The fries and onion ringy dingy ding-a-ling dings at Jonny Rockets are snacks on the dining pass, and have good portion sizes.


Also, the trick to minimize sliding on RC (and I assume other spinning mice) is to put your feet on the metal diagonal footrest thingy in the front of the car, and press hard on it with your feet (like your trying to push it with your legs). I’ve found that very helpful.

Late to the party, but nice pics from the media day (and the 5/17 update). Firebird looks fantastic! I greatly enjoyed this coaster as a Stand Up at SFGAm, and was happy to catch a few last laps on Apocalypse before it closed in 2018. I think it has a great layout, so I'm glad it got the refurb rather than getting scrapped. Hopefully it'll stick around for many years to come.
Been you to have any spike, man?

Awesome trip reports and great pictures C.O.! Batwing is so love/hate for me because I enjoy the coaster but cannot stand how slow the dispatch times are along with the reliability issues.

What's with the donkeys anyway?

Wahoo River has gotten some tropical trees added as well as another bridge to get over to the pool.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

NEW TREES!!!!!!

We not only got the bathroom but even more trees? This is getting to be too good to be real.
Meister Brau just wants a path from CC to SM at SFA, meal plan burrito, some shade, and a restroom back there.

There is also a new R&B show that they just added to the show lineup. It is located in the Grande Theatre!

There are more trees planted in several areas. In a year or two, they will have some height.
Top 3 steel: Skyrush, Twisted Timbers, I305
Top 3 wood: El Toro, Twister, Wild One

I just swallowed a whole donkey!

I like that they have Grande Theater shows in the summer :) Gives me something to do if it done get too hot (Maryland summers can sometimes get brutal).

Not sure if/when I’ll submit a full TR of my trip last weekend, but for now, check out this video I made on SFA’s latest addition:
