Just recently I drove by SFoG on I-20, and wow, expect lines at SFoG to double next season. They have picked one of the best spots for a hyper they could have chosen and man, does the terrain make this ride look huge.
Because of the height difference in where the lift takes off and the rest of the ride, this thing looks giant.
People all over my school, work, and neighborhood have been talking about it. All I can say is that this is a very good business move and it is a shoe in for success in 2006.

Very good business move, huh? Tell that to Shapiro who explicitly said it was a bad idea and will never happen again.
Personally, I love it and can't wait. 2 months away!
Welcome back, red train, how was your ride?!

You never know Shapiro may change his mind about them never building one again if it pays for itself :).

Well, continues to pay for itself would be the key there. I'm sure they aren't cheap to maintain. I'm sure they'll wait a few years to see if it still brings in enough extra admissions to pay for the upkeep and then some. The then some being important because paying for itself isn't enough for a public company.
