Need some SFOG help and tips FAST!!

Monday, June 10, 2002 6:01 AM
Well, I'm not going to be there until Wednesday, but I won't get a chance to read anything new after tomarrow afternoon, so I do need it pretty quickly. We've not been to SFoG since Scorcher opened, so that's far enough back for the park to be a bit different than it is today.

Does anyone have any tips on when to ride something and how long are the waits on weekdays usually?

Has Deja Vu and Superman been running well?

Are there any other must-ride or must-see things besides coasters, Acrophobia, and Monster Plantation(Danny--- Dark ride lover!)? The parachutes? Train?

Anything else helpful you can offer would be great such as where to ride on a coaster, etc.

I'm really looking forward to hitting Mindbender and GASM again, but I don't remember liking Cyclone or Ninja too well. Here's hoping I'll change my mind about the last two and having a good trip. I'll be heading down to IOA and BGT from there, so I think I might have a little bit of fun. ;)

Thanks a million!

I went last Monday and Tuesday and there were no waits for anything except Superman and Deja Vu. You should try to ride Deja Vu first because it suffers from "technical difficulties" frequently. I did'nt get to ride it last time I went. I stood in line for it both days though. Superman had it's share of problems while I was there but I think it was due to ride op error. It was never down for long. I would try to ride Superman early because the queue for this ride fills up fast and the wait is fairly long.

As far as where to ride the coasters. If you want stand up ejector air, ride the Cyclone in the back seat. Also, ride the Scorcher in the back seat for airtime. I rode Superman in the front seat and the back seat and I enjoyed both but I liked the front seat better.

Hope you have a good time. Let us know how your trip was.

Thanks Buzzo! What did you think of Deja Vu? Should I be disappointed if I miss it?

Trip delayed a day. Probably will be at IOA on Friday. I'll take on BGT Saturday and I'll head into SFoG territory on Monday.

Any more help from anyone? Lo-Q a good idea?

Consider yourself lucky if you ride Deja Vu...even luckier if you wait less than 2 hrs.

Last Tuesday, the GASM and Mindbender crews were AWESOME, especially Mindbender, which surprised me. Hopefully S:UF runs three trains. On a weekday, Deja Vu=2hrs. (if open, unless you're there first) Superman should be 1 hour MAX; Acro, B:TR 30 mins MAX, nothing else should exceed 15 minutes or be a walk-on.

My two favorite coasters are named Superman.

Deja Vu is the same everywhere, if it's open and running, make sure to get to it before it breaks down or lines become excessive. I got the first train out after SFGAm's was broken down (valleyed in the station, LOL). The wait was about 1:15, and I should have gotten right back in line, but there were....extenuating....circumstances...

S:UF is the best one-trick coaster I've been on, but I thought the overall experience of the Vekoma flyers was better...*ducks head*. Thanks to offseason work, Ga Cyclone rivals SFAGm's Viper for Cy-clone superiority, a great ride. GASM is an excellent dog-leg out-n-back, a must at night, simply beautiful. The remaining Schwarzkopf *sniff*, Mindbender, is a phenomenal steel, the Grizzly East of steelies, laps and loops....yummmm. Be sure to check out Acro (still no match for PKI's Drop Zone), and the Mine Train is quirky fun....B:TR is B:TR, reliable ride....

Ninja, I have been told a few times "you have to know HOW to ride it"....basically to me it was REALLY rough, and there's too many good rides there to spend time on something I don't like. Have yet to get on their bumper cars, I guess Knoebel's ruined me for most parks' poor imitations....IB has some really good ones, though...

*slaps head in amazement*...oh yeah, do NOT miss more than a few spins on Ga Scorcher if lines are good, it is one awesome stand-up, and to me accomplishes what Paramount should have done with the Vortices.....

Thanks rollergator and astrosgp. You were both extremely helpful. Since it sounds like SFoG has a ton of incredible rides, I don't think I'll miss Deja Vu much if its closed. I still can't imagine how intense the pretzel loop will feel on Superman, but it should be fun anyways. See you guys when I get back! I'll take any help anyone wants to offer until midnight tonight(we're leaving at 3 AM!!!), but these guys have really got me covered.
