Texas Cyclone is ok, Texas Tornado is different, and Ultra Twister is different also, UT has a headbanging problem and so does TT, but they are all pretty neat rides.

There are some OK rides.  Batman: The Escape is fun, but overly rough.  Texas Tornado has been closed for a year.  I haven't even been on it yet.  it will most likely be closed if you go.  Ultra-Twister is intersting.  It has a 87 degree drop.  Greezed Lightnin' is great.  Viper is OK.  Serial Thriller is very fun.  XLR-8 is one of the most boring coasters I have been on.  Texas Cyclone is my favorite coaster there.  The park is small and dirty, and somewhat neglected.  It's OK!!!

If you have season passes, and really really want to up your track record, then go for it.  Otherwise there is nothing spectacular with the exception of Thriller (Texas Tornado).  Which as Lance Baker points out, had been closed for a year.  Viper has one PERFECT loop, and Texas Cyclone is pretty darn good.  Ultra Twister was closed on the day I was there, so no love there.
The one thing SFAW needs more than new coasters is PAINT!!!
"X" marks the spot in 2001!

Its been a few years since ive been here, but I remeber having a good time at SFAW.  Just becasue it doesn't have any "new" coasters doesn't mean the coasters are bad.  My favorites were Viper, Texas Cyclone, B:TE and Greezed Lightning.  Its not the biggest or Prettiest park, but you can still have a good time at it.  Have fun!
