Cedar Point fans and Magic Mountain fans unite. Let's sign a rollercoaster treaty.
UltraTwisted, I suppose you have photographic evidence to support this tale, seeing that the park is open to GP and all. Well?

They only have 4 coasters in opperation now. Boomerang, Superman:KC, and Roadrunner Express, and their kiddie coaster. Rattler is down for re-hab. Poltergeist is down, and Joker is out. I will be going to the park next month, so it makes me kinda upset.
SFNE drops the "floor" on SFNE for 2002! Visit www.geocities.com/sfneguy for info. and pics of SFNE, including NEW constr. pics of B:DK!!!

Maybe Joker's Revenge is getting lap bars! HaHa thats a funny thought.
800,000 years in 7 seconds: Time Machine the movie or next S&S creation?
Such a wild mishap on the Premier coaster is a little hard to believe without photo proof. Funny story even if it's not true.
Unless we hear or see something official, I'm afraid it will have to be filed with Magnum sinking and the time one of Demon Drop's cars flew off and crashed into a ticket booth.
I don't doubt it's down for a reason, but it could just be that the train isn't back yet!
I'm not calling anyone a liar, but isn't it funny how many of our wackiest rumors have come from "very reliable sorces"? Again, the SFFT thing may be true, I don't know! :)

The Premier coaster is getting adjustments, like ALL of them went throught. I think its best to wait and see if Six Flags will have an opening date, rather than play engineer. The Premier ride will be great when it is finished. 3rd and 4th party rumors are getting out of hand.
What is it with parks not letting us have a final ride or at least telling us it's the last season so ride while you can I mean this year we've lost DRACHEN FIRE KING COBRA WINDJAMMER and now things don't look good for JOKER'S REVENGE I know the parks owe us nothing but you think they might let the fans of their rides say goodbye SFOG did with VIPER and didn't KENNYWOOD let people kow STEEL PHANTOM WAS LEAVING
Doesnt JOKER'S REVENGE run backwards mabe it would be more comfy if they just turned it around
2002 - the year of LoCoSuMo!!
Umm... well, Joker's Revenge isn't just rough, but it's also a very boring ride. Lift. Drop. Loop. Helix. Corkscrews. Helix. Brakes.
I say SFFT needs to put a flying coaster in its spot! Just imagine flying on the quarry cliff, then diving down into the quarry. Now, wouldn't that be just AWESOME?!
The fact that the trains ran backwards was about the only thing this ride had going for it. Very short, not really anything unique or imaginative, and it was very rough. No one should really shed any tears about not getting one last ride. There's plenty of Arrow corkscrews out there that offer the same experience without going backward.
Sorry, Starcoaster, but that story still doesn't sound right. I can't imagine that they would not have manually pushed the cars through the LIM run to check their alignment. Call me crazy, but that would be one of the first things I would do, especially if something didn't look right.

stealing good ideas is part of the fun of life...why not run TWO trains, one forward, one backward. Freedom of choice! Never having gone on a backwards steelie, other than the obvious shuttles, I know which one I'd pick....
Hopefully Rattler and Poltergeist will be up and running soon. The spaghetti bowls really WERE pretty bangy before the retrtofit. Even though PKI's FoF is the only Premier I've ridden with the retro (The Chiller being closed when we visited SFGAdv), I really see Premier as having a real future now...can't say I did beore...
Last note: bigboy, you're CRAZY! You did ask...;)
