Re: Countdown to SFStL 2010

Cant wait to see how the weekend at SFSTL was for everyone! I originally planned to go there for opening weekend but since my girlfriend's dad works at SFGAm and got my season pass for me, I have to wait til SFGAm opens to process the pass. Next year I think I might just go with the SFSTL pass, beca...

Re: SFNE Superman or SFA's (or DL's) Superman

I have been on all 3 and SFNE clearly is the winner. I HAVE NOT, however, been on SFNE's since the trains were changed. All 3 are great rides! Darien Lake's has the best surrounding of the 2 clones, since it is the original and goes over water as opposed to through a field. It kind of reminds me of ...

Re: Working at Amusement Parks

^ Also, if you are enthusiastic about running the rides which I'm sure you are, great! I hope you land a good unit to work at! Be ready for some lazy asses that show up late and are slow etc. The young kids just don't know what its like to show responsibility at a job yet and a lot of them get moved...

Re: Working at Amusement Parks

How many negative-g'ers have we got working in the parks this year? Last week, after realizing that no one will hire freshmen for internships, I realized that I'd have to start looking for a good job if I want to escape working fast food again. So I filled out an application for SFGAm (ride ops), a...

Re: Working at Amusement Parks

I have contemplated returning to SFGAm for 1 day a week on weekends in the summer. However, a return to Raging Bull is all I would be interested in.

Re: What coaster would you call the perfect coaster

There is no such thing as the perfect coaster, nor will there ever be IMO.

There is always something more that could make your favorite better, I think. Voyage comes the closest for me to being perfect. There isn't a whole lot I would want to see changed on it to make it better than it is.

Re: Six Flags Changes Line Jumping Policy

Apparently I was called "Old School SFGAm" by someone who later worked at the park but visited back when I worked at Raging Bull.

Thats what we need! More "Old School" operations! lol

We knew what we were doing...some of these people I saw running Bull last year... ::shudders::

Re: A Terrain GCI?

Oh man I always thought a terrain coaster would be sweet at SDC. I would assume this would be on the same side of the park as Wildfire except closer to the front of the park? Thats where I always thought one would be great!

Re: SFKK Who do you want to take it over?

I'll say Cedarfair just because if I don't already have a season pass to a sister park of a new owner I will not ever go back and pay to get in unless they added something spectacular! lol

Re: What is the worst amusement park you have ever been too?

Fun Spot. The day I was there the Arrow shuttle was closed leaving us with the Zyklon with OTSRs and the flats that had one operator for every 2-3 rides. I got a slush puppy there that tasted like Cherry rust. Wish I had got on Afterburner, at least that would have been semi-fun.

Re: Is that a credit or not?

Most people will argue that is only a dark ride but look at it this way. What if you take the roof off of it along with the walls but operated the ride the same way. Would it still be a dark ride? That would then be a light ride wouldnt it? 8) Every time someone says Avatar now I think of the movie...
