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.
^ Joker's Jinx really didn't want you talking lol.
What an awesome tour!! I sure do love the cleaning supplies on the sink, awesome theming.
Darien Lake is my home park.
