About two weeks ago on June 11, I went to the SFWOA and was disappointed by numerous ride breakdowns and lots of litter. I just went yesterday (June 28) and I was amazed at the improvement shown over just a two-week period. I was hard-pressed to find any litter, and all the coasters were working all day.

I went there with my church this time and had a wonderful time. We arrived at the park around opening time (11 am) and went to our pavilion inside the park. This area was surprisingly clean. Then over the course of 3 hours, I rode Batman 6 times, Double Loop, Serial Thriller, and Villain 4 times.

Then we had a catered lunch from Six Flags that was decent. The food was average, but it filled us up.

Then I proceeded to ride Big Dipper, which was really fun. If you are a big person, you should get your own seat. This is so you don't smash into the other person and you have more room. Then I rode in the first seat of Superman, which is always awesome. Then I rode Mr. Hyde's Nasty Fall. Yes, it was actually working. It wasn't that rough. It shook you around, but it wasn't that bad.

Then I waited an hour to get on X-Flight. The line was very comfortable because I purchased a cheap portable fan at Wal Mart that morning. PROPER PLANNING PEOPLE. X-Flight was amazing, like always.

Then I went on Batman once more and on Villain 6 more times. A CCI walk-on, that is hard to find. It is an awesome coaster too. I also went on Roadrunner's Express, It was riding better than last year, much more smooth. Then I risked my parent's grandchildren to ride Texas Twister...It actually didn't hurt at all. It was much more comfortable than a couple of years ago.

All in all, you can't beat riding a CCI 10 times, a B&M floorless 7 times, a Intamin LIM , an ACE classic, a small arrow looper, SLC, and a flying coaster all in 7 hours, plus an hour for lunch. The park was very clean...I think the biggest reason for my fun visit was PROPER PLANNING. Also, I was expected to be disappointed again, but it turned out to be a blast. Everyone understands that this park has gotten 5 new coasters, doubled it's size, and changed ownership in the last 3 years. I think that Six Flags officials have been doing a wonderful job considering how big of an undertaking this is.

It's funny that you mention the catering. I was actually blown away at the catering for last year's media day, but I couldn't tell if it was internally prepared or contracted. It was a lot better than 90% of what's available at the park on a normal day.

I was shocked by how much the park did better this time. The ride-ops are pretty fun too. THe one on the Serial Thriller let me talk on the mike. And I got the ride-op on Double Loop to add "How did you enjoys America's first double-looping coaster?" To his whole spiel. I can't wait to go back this Thursday!!!

If you want good grub at the park--the cafeteria style restaurants at the Life park (about 4 of them back there) have very yummy grub.

I personally like the fajitas at Swamp Water Jacks. Be nice to the ladies working when it is empty and they will give you more meat and big samples.

Wow! I agree with Christopherpeeper for a change! Swampwater Jacks is the shiznit. Not easy on the wallet though. I'll have to try to kiss up for more meat next time. *** This post was edited by G-Money on 7/3/2001. ***

Or just be a really flirtatious employee and they hook you up! I got a whole dinner, a drink and dessert from Swamp Water Jacks for only $3 total! Great deal. Thats a savings of about $10.
