What would SFKK happen to stand for, by the way?
Sad that a lot of people don't know about what could be a "great park" if only it got more TLC from the Six Flags Corp.

The Yankees are still #1
For the record, I'd disagree with Intamin's inclusion in that list. I've never much cared for their designs, finding them either gimmicky (Volcano), or soulless (S:ROS). They just sorta go through the motions without really being thrilling IMHO.
The only GCI or CCI at SFMM would be the one we have been dreamin of for years lol
Wir schrauben für Euch die Achterbahn zusammen!!!
And they are not the Premier coaster designers. Premier means first....no?
The Yankees are still #1
Yes, I guess not the best choice of adjectives... I've heard premier used as meaning "great" but I guess "best" would have been the better word.
The only Intamin I've been on is Superman: Ultimate Escape. I've been to CP, but that was at the beginning of this summer when I hated coasters (still kickin' myself for that...). After all the great stuff I hear about MF, I think Intamin belongs on the list, but I will judge that next summer.

MF - fabulous coaster. Easily one of my favs
S:UE - fabulous launched ride. I find it to be one of the most thrilling rides I've been on. The fact that it comprises such a small footprint makes it even more impressive to me.
Volcano - Great idea. Good placement and themeing. Two wonderful launches, but the ride is desperately missing a third act.
S:ROS @ SFA- Another fab design with incredible airtime.
One of the things I like about Intamin is their train design for their hypers. I like the feeling of being so out in the open and so "free". The "free" feeling is enhanced by the fact that its just two across seating. Not even B&M's hyper trains compare, and I've ridden all three B&M hypers located within the US: Raging Bull, Nitro, Apollo's Chariot. B&M, again in my opinion, has a lot to learn about airtime.
I'd Rather Be Riding Roller Coasters
Your second observation that everyone bashes SFWOA is even more interesting to me. I'd have to agree with those people wholeheartedly as my one experience at SFWOA has been the single worst amusement park experience I've ever had.
I guess all this does is help the arguement some of us make:
It takes more than great coasters to make a great park.
Hopefully Six Flags will realize this sometime in the near future. There's so much more to the whole park experience than just coasters (even if you're mostly a coaster fan) - this is why some smaller parks are so popular and why some huge parks are so hated.

WHat park has the most amounts of Intamin?
SFMM Season Pass 80$ drink 10$ ripping of six flags by coming back 100 times Priceless......
SFMM would be a good candidate. Here's are some Magic Mountain coasters Intamin AG has been acredited to. Revolution was worked by Intamin hand in hand along with Anton Shwartzkopf.
- Superman The Escape
