Having more wooden roller coaster at SFA.

Saturday, December 1, 2001 7:45 PM
I think that it's about time that SFA gets a wooden coaster because they only have 2 of them Roar & Wild One.There are more steel coasters at SFA. And I hope down the line that SFA gets a nother woooden coaster.PKD aready has 4 wooden coasters and SFA has only 2 wooden coasters.Let me know what you think of this.

I'm not sure. The problem is simple: What would they add?

They've already got a twister and an out and back, so anything they add wouldn't really be a new thrill. With many steel coaster types, they could provide a totally different expirence. This is NOT to say I'm not in favor of wooden coasters, in fact, I perfer them to steel, but in SFA's situation, I don't see such an addition as advantageous.

If SFA's Roar is as good as SFMW's, then SFA is set in the wooden department for a long time to come.

SFMW's Roar is an amazing coaster, even better than Ghostrider in my opinion.

A LOT of parks would love to have 2 wooden coasters like the ones at SFA!  I think SFA has a good collection of unique coasters, and if they were to add something it would most definately be steel.

I agree with most of theother people. I love woodies but SFA has enough of them at the moment. Roar and Wild One are great and SFA will get steel next before they get another woodie. I'm hoping for a B&M Floorless or a B&M standup because we already have 2 inverts, 1 hyper and a regular sit down looper, and a flying coaster. I think a floorless would go great in the park, right behind or between Superman and Batwing. Two woodies is enough for the most part. Plus, SF doesn't really stack up on woodies at parks. Roar was built the second year and Wild One was built a long time before that. Steel is much easier to maintain also. I am 99% sure that SFA will get steel intead of wood for awhile to come.

As others have stated so eloquently, SFA is kinda set in the woodie dept. for now.  Not that a good CCI terrain coaster alongside of Batwing wouldn't be great, I just don't see it happening in the near future.  SFGAdv, on the other hand, has only the out-and-back Rolling Chunder, so don't be too surprised if they don't pick up a GCI or CCI twister in the next few years...of course, SFA's maintenance seems to care for woodies in a way SFGAdv either doesn't or can't...

SFA could certainly use at least one more woodie preferably a dueling coaster such as Lightning racer @HP.But for the time being I would just love to see them get anything B&M,a floorless or stand up would suit me just fine.Any idea on when SFA's announcement will be?

Hey! One can NEVER have too much wood. As for what TYPE of woodie they could get I'm all about a racing/dueling coaster. While preferably twisted, I'd even take a multi out and backer

I'd LIKE to see a B&M something rather another. I'm leaning towards a standup myself (no real need for a floorless/flying) though a plain sitdown would be fine.

BTW(1): SFWoA has an out and back (Big Dipper) a twister (Raging Wolf Bobs) and a multi out and backer (zepher style) (Villain)

BTW(1): it's FORSHIZZLE (like for sure) my nizzle...

I would love to see a CCI or another GCI at my homepark, but, I think that's many years off, if at all. Let's just count our blessings that SFA has two great wood coasters, and ones that are well taken care of! In fact, PTC is rebuilding the trains of Wild One and Roar again this year as I write this.

Intamin Fan, you DO have a great park there...and you've got maintenance that cares for your woodies!  Good to hear Tom R's getting more business, keeping great coasters running that way :-)! 

Oh, and 2hostyl, SFWoA still HAS two great woodies...the OLD and the NEW.  Not sure about RWB, there's not many wooden coasters I enjoyed less.  Those Summers-Dinn contraptions (see: MS, Herc, RWB, Psyclone) seem to age less than gracefully...TR seems to be the exception - maybe the key is layout?  But definitely, there is NO way a park can have too many woodies---only too little maintenance!

I enjoy both of SFA's woodies. Sure another wouldn't hurt, but I'd rather see a B&M inverted.

I'd love to see SFA add a new woodie, but they already have two fine ones.  If there is anything that they could really use to add it's a fine inverter, ideally a B&M as others have suggested.  Or, maybe a Junior woodie to bridge the gap between their kiddie coasters and their big coasters.

How about one of those "kiddie" coasters like Cornball Express? ;)

I want SFA to get a thrust air.  If it was like 110 mph. or more it could still be under the 200 foot height limit if it had Dodonpa's turn.  That 0-G fall looks awesome, too.  SFA doesn't really have a problem with lines, and it could kill Hypersonic, so that shouln't be a bad choice.  A B+M standup would be cool too.

Forget the thrust air.I wouldn't mind if they just bulldozed wild one and put in a nice dueling racing woodie like HP's lightning racer as well as anything by B&M.Wild one was once tops on my list,it was my first "high speed coaster" but what with all the re profiling that's been done to it I wouldn't mind if SFA just tore it down.Originally wild one had a good 1st drop,now the drop is barely there,it also had a great turn around but it has since been flattened and lengthened,not to mention adding that trim brake just before the helix.The only positive addition to the ride as a result of it's re profiling is some killer air time on the return trip.Other than that it just isn't as good as it was just a few years ago.

Count your lucky stars that you don't end up like SFDL. Sfdl  has only gotten one ride over the past three years and that was only a trail version.

Put a vertical hill at the beginning and end of your proposed TA2K ride at SFA, make it a little faster, and a little higher, with different colors, and people won't know the difference between it and Hypersonic. ;)

BFS, there's no chance they would bulldoze Wild One. It's the heart of the park as Sam Marks calls it. Some of the changes that were made, came out of necessity, due to maintenance problems and costs. Wild One also provides a much needed in-between coaster for the young ones, something SFA desparately needs more of. You can dream all you want, but it ain't going to happen.
