Indeed. Can you imagine how much more exciting they'd be with two? Three? Unfortunately, with the wait between delivery of replacement trains, capacity would be even worse.

Yes, but they'd make tons of money selling fast passes to the Emergency Room.

It's my opinion we need increased capacity on the Wahmbulance around here...

I see personal opinions on one's experiences here all the time. The only acceptable opinion of this kind is a positive opinion? We are collectively supposed to think that some parks shouldn't try to do better? Improvement is not an option? We should just happily accept whatever we get?

I want a park visit to be worth the effort, time, and money. Some of you have accepted mediocrity, where progress is not sought after.

I hope that wasn't the takeaway from my post, LK. Because mine was intended to be utterly scurrilous and not to be read particularly seriously...

I have been to Great Adventure on many occasions where the ride ops were doing a great job and things were fantastic. Nitro usually moves at a lightning fast pace. Honestly, the problem at Great Adventure many times seems to be a combination of stupid people and inconsistency. Toro runs up to three trains, but the ops don't tell people to move down throughout the whole station. There are always people in every single train that insist on trying to get past the loose articles in lockers rule, etc etc. Honestly, for a park as renowned as it is, I think they do a decent job. I can't say I've had significantly better visits or significantly worse visits to other parks.

I may not be an expert, but I'm 100% sure Toro does not have three trains.

Are we really making fun of each other for not wanting to wait in a long line and suggesting that a park could do better?

Saturday, November 17, 2012 12:11 PM

No, not really. We make fun of each other for complaining about the same things over and over and over again.

Best I can tell, lots of variables (the validity of the complaint, the degree of complaining, the frequency of complaints, the drama, the arguing points used to make your case, etc.) determine the level of the response.

The really good ones achieve meme-like status.

Every visit I've had to great adventure was fun, with multiple trains running on all coasters, and waits that weren't that bad. Having said that, even with multiple trains, the park is in the biggest n
Metro area in the US. It's going to get busy, and that itself will carouse bad reviews.

I haven't had what I'd call a "substandard" visit to GAdv since Columbus Day about 6-7 years ago, when it was so super-busy it seemed like the entirety of NYC was packed in the park. I've been back on about 8-10 occasions since then, and every time it's been..."great."

Saturday, November 17, 2012 1:27 PM

Yeah, I don't think the SF parks in general have really, truly consistently sucked for the better part of a decade now.

Haven't had a horrible Six Flags day since '02 or '03.

Saturday, November 17, 2012 3:05 PM

The last bad day I had at a six flags was in 2005. I'm heading back to that park next month so we'll see what happens.

Saturday, November 17, 2012 8:46 PM

Maybe I should call up SFGAdv a few days before I arrive and let them know that I'm coming, explain my past experiences there, and ask them to make sure everything goes smoothly. That'll do the trick! :D

A Xanax or two may help as well. lol

Sorry, couldn't resist...

Saturday, November 17, 2012 11:03 PM

Xanax always helps...

Saturday, November 17, 2012 11:30 PM

So does a fast pass....

Sunday, November 18, 2012 3:33 AM

Don't forget that Xanax works best when licked.

Sunday, November 18, 2012 11:17 AM

Oddly enough, so does Fast Pass.
