The ride was a bit rough when I rode it 5 years ago, but tolerable. I love the layout. They could easily enclose it and give it some sort of mine theme. That would be neat. ----------------- Yeeee Haaawwww!
I heard that the reason the ride stays closed for most of the year is that it is a distraction for the lifeguards at HH. They say that it sits there just for coaster count competition sake. Whether it is a bad coaster or not, I don't think that coasters should be wasted in that way. Move it somewhere more useful.
Hopefully, it'll be moved to another SF park after they get "the record"---I'm assuming all 15 (or 16) rides will be operational for CoasterCon! If not to another park, at least to a location at MM where it won't "interfere" with the operation of the waterpark...now THAT'S planning! ----------------- rollergator - intent on improving the "guest experience" - coming soon to a park near you
