Must be an age thing, I don't know, but my then girlfriend now wife and I rode it in 1992 at SFGAdv and actually thought it was the best stand up we had ever ridden. Then again, up to that point it was the ONLY one she had ever been on and only my third, the other two being at PKI and PKD. We were rather "shocked" to see it gone the following year. That's when I first became aware of the "ride rotation policy" that SF has. I didn't know at the time that the space that UltraTwister(sign was still there)had occupied meant it had been moved, not demolished.

I would expect, if Six Flags sells off some of the lesser properties in the chain, everything left over would be re-branded with the "Six Flags" monkier. Which means... The Great Escape. I think this is the way the company is heading (unless they create two brands... "Six Flags" for the big parks, and another brand for the smaller parks they own... or still would own).

It's not so much that we knock the coaster as it is that the coaster knocks us.

Nice. Is it just me or does it seem that the older stand-ups get, the rougher they get? I guess the ride position has everything to do with it too.

Alexx, here's how to fix your keyboard and save money: 1) Make sure you make a note of where every key is placed 2) Remove every key off of your keyboard using a screwdriver or the like. Wedge it under the key and pop it off. 3) Use a damp papertowel or the like (wet toothbrush would work too) and scrub out the liquid inside covering the key contacts 4) Replace keys by pushing down on them one at a time. They should click into place.

How do I know this? I haven't ever spilled a drink on my keyboard, but I know someone who did. I was able to offer her help after I played 108-key pickup off of my keyboard. It was my "Trent Reznor" moment:)
