There are plenty on rides coming down as I type. I am not sharing pictures, but Skuller is wrong. Trust me. DD and SWAT are the priorities right now. Cars, theming, queue, electrical, are pretty much all packed. The crane for SWAT should be in motion today, and finishing up this week, and DD 2 weeks or so. Just keep in mind there is a lot of prep work to be done before the actual ride structures come down.
Many flat rides are already broke down awaiting shipping.

I think Markieb is right on this one. SFAW is deconstructing things that are high priority right now. The rides that we will see at other parks next year are in the process of being taken down and shipped out. At this point, that is mostly flat rides (like SAWT, DD and Diablo Falls) and the water rides that they will be sending elsewhere.
As for the coasters, I would not expect to see one coaster from SFAW show up in a SF park next year. I do think that they will eventually show up in the SF pakrs, just not this soon. It takes a long time to take a coaster down to re-contsruct it, and I just don't think that 2006 is long enough. Expect the coasters to start showing up at the properties where they will be re-constructed during the early part of next season, and then installed for the 2007 season.
I bet we see more than serial thriller show up in a SF park soon. Batman will probably be recycled, Greezed Lightning, XLR8 and Ultra Twister may all show up at some SF park or SF owned property. You may even see things like the Mayan Mindbender show up. The only one that everyone seems to feel is totally headed for the wrecking ball is the Texas Cyclone, which is ahame as I hear that it is the best ride in the entire park.
Well, technically they haven't sold the land yet, ergo, they still own the property and are in no contract or the like to get the rides out by any timeframe so they have as long as they need. I've heard something like 6 months as SF's timetable to get everything outa there.
