Coaster burnout?

Friday, February 23, 2001 8:42 PM
This is more to the warm climate enthusiasts. Since you have parks that are open all year round do you ever actually get burned out on riding? Now I know some of you are probably going to say that will never happen but just like anything else in life, to much of anything can be bad. Us seasonal coaster enthusiasts that dont get out much during the winter obviously dont have that problem. Especially now that we have been without for about 4 months(We are itching to ride). Do you "all year round" coaster riders ever need a break?

Sometimes I need a break, but only because I get bored of coasters. After about a week or two, though, I am ready to go back for more!

With GhostRider at my homepark, there is NO WAY I would get tired of that. When it went down to add the roof, I was dying for those 3 weeks. I had to "settle" for Montezooma's Rev. & Boomerang.

Here in FL, I am sick of Busch Gardens. It is not because of coaster burnout I just don't like the park. So, I live in FL and don't get burnout, because I wait till Cedar Point etc.open.

Sick of Busch Gardens? It looks like a sweet park. I would visit if I wasn't broke all the time.

A lot of times, I'll get it, but not because of coasters in general.

I had a trip in August, and went to Cedar Point for a weekend, where we stayed until closing (got there right at 10:00 AM) each day. On the following Tuesday I went to my home park, SFGAm, and it was absolutely one of my worst visits ever. Batman and Iron Wolf were so mundane, Raging Bull was good, but down half the day.

Interesting...I worked every Tuesday in August last year the entire day and Bull was never down half the day, ever.

Care to elaborate how long "half the day" really was? Was it 20mins?

You can remember every detail of every day that you worked last summer? Wow, good memory, dude. Maybe RB was down for 20 minutes every time he tried to enter the queue. Some people just have bad luck, you know.

Hmmm, a coaster being down for a half day isn't something I'd consider "a detail." Obviously I'd remember something like that.

Thanks for the complement about my memory though.

I'd also remember if it was down that often (every time he'd enter the queue). It's a quality B&M coaster, they don't have that much downtime. At least this one doesn't.

Are there any other inquiries, Soggy?

Legendary, who knows about bad luck. SFDL SRoS was down until 5pm (park closed at 10pm) on a May Friday back in 1999. How's that for a memory.

(BTW, the comment of the ride being down half the day came from the same kid who said FL has a height limit of 200'. Perhaps he just doesn't remember things well, or just likes to lie? I'm still waiting for his response)

As for the original question --

No, I never get coaster burnout. I don't think I ever will, but I don't live in FL or CA either. I think riding a coaster would be better than working at most any jobm and it's something that I don't think can just "get old."

Who knows though, time will tell I guess.

I got a kind of coaster burnout during my visit to SFNE last year. I rode Flashback, Cyclone, Mind Eraser, and Thunderbolt before riding Superman. After that one ride on Superman, I couldn't be pleased by those other coasters, Superman was all that would do for me.

I went SFGAm last year every thursday in August. The only ride I remember down was Giant Drop. Oh, well they did have some power outages for like a half an hour the first thursday I went.

With all the awesome wooden coasters at PKI I never get burned out. "Just go to the other Beast." "Which one?" Sometimes its confusing. Never ever. Nope. Imposible. Not me!
