Great report! SFOG really is one of the best Six Flags park and it has a very underrated and excellent coaster lineup.

I found Great American Scream Machine brutal even with the old trains. It's a shame since the ride is beautiful and has plenty of airtime; it's just impossible to enjoy with that much rattling. I actually find it sort of impressive they've managed to let an out and back coaster get that rough.

The sign at the Flash Pass store didn't list Twisted Cyclone as a one time only (I think only the website does) and the employees confirmed it was an unlimited option. I find it funny that the new hotness allows unlimited rides while a 20 year old Batman doesn't (though the Flash Pass set up is wonky there).

No Sky Bucket, no flume and no love for Jimmy Buffett? What even is this? :lol:

Seriously though, great report.

Nice report!

I used to love GASM, too. With the old trains, you could middle-row the back car and get treated to Phoenix levels of airtime on every hill, especially on that return leg.

Twisted Cyclone is such an incredible ride. While I'd give the edge to Twisted Timbers, it's really hard for me to compare the top-tier RMCs, they're all just so good

Yay for Platinum Pass, nothing like just going up to a ride whenever you feel like it. Boo for technical problems though. Another reason why Fast Lane is better, just show your wristband and go.

I appreciate your thoughts on Superman, maybe I'll like that one better than the other two. Monster Mansion looks like something right up my alley. I loved Wildwood's WTF tram car acid trip ride, and this cannot possibly be weirder than that, but please let it be even weirder.

We've recently seen Sweetwater up here, and their 420 is a really good one.

Awesome report. I always enjoy your trip reports and appreciate your take on the parks. It adds extra "umph" that you like my home park so much!!

Thanks for sharing.

P.S. - I agree that the old Cyclone trains on Scream Machine are a crime against nature.

Great report boldikus your reports are always fun to read. SFOG is one of the few east coast parks I've never set foot in and it keeps adding great stuff to make me want to go even more.

Was a pleasure, my friend. I'm still reeling over Twisted Cyclone, for what it's worth!
