I must congratulate SFWoA. Last weekend, my high school marching band went to SFWoA. We all had a great experience. It was the first time I had ridden X-Flight and I was amazed at how smooth and thrilling it was. Anyway, I've heard a lot of bad things about WoA, but they weren't true the day I was there. There was absolutely no litter around the park. The ride-ops were very friendly, especially the ones on X-Flight and Raging Wolf Bobs. The only problem was the food. I really think they need to improve the food more, lower food prices, and get a larger variety. There were two trains on Batman, but I'm not sure about the Villian. X-Flight's other train was laying the grass by the lift and Serial Thriller's was on the transfer track (it looked like it was still in rehab). The only rides that were down were the sky tower ride, S:UE, Dr. Hyde's Nasty Fall, and Texas Twister. This park has really cleaned itself up from previous years. Keep up the good work SFWoA!

I must say the park is really shaping up and working towards its potential. Hopefully all the positive comments I've heard so far stay throughout the season. Once the park goes fulltime, I'd expect all coasters to run more than one train also. I agree with you though, the XF crew rocks this year. And I know the RWB crew has a good leader.
If they could, they should get a giga coaster instead of a hyper coaster. I would like to see another giga coaster besides MF and steel dragon 2000. X-Flight is smooth just like Superman: Ultimate Flight.
So Derrick, does that mean that you've ridden Steel Dragon2000 and Millennium Force? I know it's so boring only having two 300ft. tall coasters on two different continents. ------------------ If you have a problem with clones, the solution is real simple—Stop traveling.
Derrick: We would all like to see them build a giga. We would all like to see them build a strata. We would also all like to see them build a 700' coaster. We would also like to own our own theme park in New York. Bottom line: Not going to happen.

Lots of improvements I saw were simple things like new measurement signs which work very well, the employees seemed freindlier, and things were easy to read. However, the thing that still baffels me is that even with larger lines, that park just could not run multiple trains on anything but Batman.
Also, i confronted what looked like a manager about a safty violation, and when i went back at a later time, the violation was still active.
If you weren't sure if it was a manager or not, maybe you should have contacted guest services and made sure you got a real manager. ------------------ Grit Your Teeth, Bear Your Load, Enjoy You Ride on Thunder Road"
Coasters that can run two trains: X-Flight, Batman, Villain, Double Loop, Big Dipper Serial Thriller. Coasters that *should have two trains running: X-Flight, Batman, Villain, Serial Thriller.
I am hopeful that all the above mentioned coasters will be 2-trainin by Memorial Day. ------------------ Jes Jes's Roller CoastersDJ Jes Six Flags Worlds Of Adventure Ride-Ops Crew 2002-2003(Find Me, Win a prize!)
Thanks for the positive comments. I hope when you have positive things to say you go to Guest Services just like you do when you have negative. The park likes to hear them both. Obviously one more then the other though.
X-Flight and RWB have got to have the two best crews this season so far.
I was on my way to guest relations when a chaperone stopped me and told me to get on the bus to go back to the hotel (Inn at Six Flags- I would highly recommend it to anyone planning visiting SFWoA. Friendly service, 2 arcades, restaurant that has very good food, a pool, jungle gym fo the kiddies, and a miniature golf course).
I'm going to compose an e-mail or letter and send it to them this weekend.
