Damn, SFA looked beautiful tonight

Saturday, June 1, 2002 7:39 PM
When they said they were going to focus on aesthetics at SFA this year, they weren't kidding. And most of it has been added since last week. If you haven't seen the park since last year, it's safe to say the park is almost unrecognizable. The really shocking thing is that are managers everywhere you turn, and they listen to suggestions! I told the man to take the ride-op off of Superman who was being too agressive, and he said he'd do it! Lastly, the park was slammed at 8:30pm tonight, which is when I arrived, and the patrons still looked happy. Kings Dominion who?

Six Flags America was a pretty enjoyable experience for the 3 hours I could tolerate the park. It was nice looking towards the front of the park but the whole hike to the back field was a bit too much. As a first timer going there, I would still recommend anyone else to hit that park since they have some kick butt rides there. I was blown away by Roar!

The employees for the most part were pretty nice, too. From folks around the area, I heard this place was a dump... let's just say that I've been to worse looking parks. I was somewhat impressed with the park.

all disney-parks have the best costumer service. the attendants are always very cheery and helpful. like i was a dollar short for a t-shirt when i went up to the cash register, i then noticed i was a dollar short, and i was about to go put it back,and the dude said it was all-right and he gave it to me anyway. no-matter what time, the employees are always nice.ride-ops never get annoyed, and managers know how to deal with people. tall employees go through special training on customer service, all parks should do the same!

JJ was still only operating one train this afternoon. The line looked like 30 to 45 minutes. The park was packed since it was the opening weekend for the water park, and the weather was perfect for getting wet.

And on the original subject, I've found that the park is much improved this year. Last year the park had trouble getting quality employees, but this seems to have improved greatly this year. Many locals became soured on the park in the pre SF period when it was pretty limited. They haven't been recently to see how greatly improved it is.

One example of the improvement. Last year the rides seemed to be suffering from considerable down time. This year, I've been to the park 3 times and the notoriously unreliable Typhoon Sea Coaster was only down one of those 3 visits. All other rides were 100% up weather permitting during my visits.

Hehe, although Poltergeist at SFFT is now running both trains. When I was there last week, both trains A and B were running. Train B is the one that went down the launch section and tore up the wheel bogeys and all of that mess. The train, out of the 6 cars that are on each train, train B had 4 functional cars. As of yesterday though, train B is now running at 100%, which means capacity galore for the ride, and WOW, it is awesome. The GP in the park though understands the Go/No Go belts really well, and that crew works fast. Fiesta Texas as a whole is VERY impressive.

I've heard on typhoon sea coaster that all of the theming is finally being used,I've never ridden it with the theming being in use so I'll be sure to give it a spin while I'm there on saturday.

Nessy, before you try to brag, I rode Poltergeist last week, so HA! And I do agree that Fiesta Texas is a nice park. If I can figure things out quickly, you'll get to see my pictures of SFFT, SFA, and many other parks online soon.
