First off, SFKK is hardly an unusual park to visit. Few people base a trip on visiting that park, but it has the benefit of being very close to one of the most beloved small parks in the country in HW, because of that they get a lot of enthusiasts coming through.
Secondly, if Twisted Sisters was really all that good (which IMHO it isn't, it's the worst CCI(s) I've been on...) I think people would be going out of their way to say that it's good, since it doesn't have much competition at SFKK other than the fantastic Thunder Run and the partially loved Chang. The fact that people complain about it says to me that it's another very mediocre ride at a very mediocre park.
As I said, I place it last on my list of CCIs which is (not in my preference order):
Tonnere de Zeus
I love Thunder Run but I sure won't be going back to SFKK until they install another full size coaster...
C Bomb - You may have a point, there. However, I think a lot of people go into the park with a bad attitude, and are ready to dog everything associated with it.
I was extremely impressed by Stella on opening weekend, finding it to be much better than "mediocre." But it's pointless to debate opinions. :)
Aside - The Twisted Sisters "turds on the track" photos (and all of our SRM weekend photos for that matter) have been lost for all time, so I won't be able to share them with anyone. :(

For the record, I loved Chang. That doggone Bill underhyped the peeturkey out of it.
...and now you're gonna say that people go by what I have to say........laughable....just 'cause Chang and Bang wasn't MY personal fav doesn't mean it can't be yours...or jeremy's...
...I'm just not a fan of the Beemer stand-ups once they passed toddler-hood....they're better YOUNG....like Ga Scorcher and RRV...for now at least....
edit: but the park has improved SO much this year over last that I don't fault them for Chang...shoot, the wood is better by a LONG shot, and there's plenty there to do....DER SHOES!

Part of a Flight Attendant's arrival announcement: "We'd like to thank you folks for flying with us today. And, the next time you get the insane urge to go blasting through the skies in a pressurized metal tube, we hope you'll think of us."
ACE had a farewell party for it at the park and as of this weekend it's officially closed, so it does look like it's gone.
TF : You might be right, but the problem is, KK doesn't have the money for a big new hyper, and they might have the money for a used ride. And it is a classic.
KM, SFGAm has stated that "due to overwhelming public response, Whizzer will be staying"....I think the ACE farewell may have been set up and kept even after the apparent reversal on Whizzer's fate.....if it goes anywhere, closer to home as good by me...If SF lets this perfect Anton rot in some ride graveyard, then I will be "officially and permanently" PO'd....
Back to SFKK, keep up the improving customer service, get TS/TT fixed so they run well (well, for a G-train ride with laterals, I understand there ARE limitations, lol...Hi Chuck!)....and add that BRIDGE I've been asking for...
