CHanges in SFGA

Thursday, May 20, 2004 8:01 PM
I'm sure by now someone has posted something about this but I have been busy lately and haven't been able to keep up on my coaster news. I saw some pictures on SFGA World that showed Batman painted yellow. Did they really paint it yellow? And if they did why? 1st I think it looked way better black. I never liked the yellow or grey Batmans at other parks. Second, it had always been black. Why change it? This may not seem like that big of a deal to most people but for me it is. My final question has nothing to do with Batman. Does anyone know if there is a camera on Whizzer. I doubt there is, but I really hope they added one. It was my first coaster and after last years incident with Superman and Whizzer I'd like to get a picture of me on it before they tear it down.

Yes, the original Batman is now yellow track with midnight blue supports. If you haven't seen it in person, don't judge it just yet. It looks like a brand new coaster.

Whizzer doesn't have the on ride photo. As long as we are on this subject, Eagle no longer has the on ride photos, and Viper is adding them.

Although I still don't think I'll like the color, I guess I'll find out in a few months. Thanks a lot though for the verification. As far as American Eagle loosing its ride photos, I'm ok with that. I am however very happy Viper is getting them. I'd much ratehr have a Viper picture then one form A.E. Thanks again.

I thought that is what that new plot of cement on the way out of Viper was for.

As for Batman, if you're going to paint it, might as well paint it a different color. Just think of it as Batman bleeched his hair.

Where exactly is the plot of cement? I rode Viper on the second Saturday of the season, and never noticed it. Any idea as to where the photo will be taken?

Eagle's on-ride photo's were either out of order, or not capturing the rider, (as a result of the Blue train running in reverse) so I'm not surprised they took them away. I don't remember the last time I saw someone purchasing an Eagle photo.

I love when someone answers their own question before they ever ask it.

You didn't notice the open space of cement exiting the ride? You walk down the ramp out of the station, then make a right under the track where the train leaves the station, and as soon as you turn right again, the cement plot is right there.

The photo on viper is taken on one of the small hills near the station. They were taking pics yesterday but you are not able to buy them yet.

I simply wanted verification that SF did actually change the color.
