I wonder if other guests had confrontations similar to the one I had with the groupers on Wicked Cyclone, and people complained.

Is it fill in any available row or do they let you wait multiple trains for a specific seat?

Any of you TPR folks heading to SFNE this Friday August 26th and fancy a meet up? Heading to Boston and thinking about making an impulsive trip down there to finally ride Superman (before 1pm...) as I've been wanting to ride that thing for years. Does it run just as well as when it first opened years ago besides the new themes or not so much...

No, but it's still a great ride. It's not rough or anything it's just a bit sluggish and has stupid restraints. If you can, ride it in row 1. It used to be a back seat ride but now it's a front seat ride.

I love donkeys more than me.

Now for the million dollar question...

Is it because it is near the end of the season and the park is understaffed? Or is this permanent now?

On Wicked Cyclone the Flash Pass person also serves as the grouper so I'm sure they're still there since they're essential to being able to sell Flash Passes. It's not a position you can cut. I'm cautiously optimistic on this one.

Superman sluggish? I was there two weeks ago and the thing was flying. Granted I didn't ride it before 2014, but this year were probably the best rides I had on it.

They are filling the station and you can wait and pick.

It's sluggish and yes the restraints stink compared to the original trains before the Bizzaro switch over. It's still an awesome ride though.

I wouldn't call any ride I've ever had on Superman sluggish, but like I said, I never rode it in it's heyday. Agree that the restraints are awful.
