My girlfriend and I decided to go to PGA since she hasn't gone on Stealth yet. She also has never been on a wild mouse coaster, and she thought Psycho Mouse looked cute in the commercials so she wanted to ride it.

Top Gun : 20 min wait for front seat! Not bad. My girlfreind has never been in thr front seat before, and she liked it a ton! Soon she will be a coaster addict like me... soon... Anyways Top Gun to me is the oddest B&M invert, totally different from any other one they made since it hugs the terrain so well. However it is really short. It pretty much only has a drop, 3 inversions and 2 helixes.

Psycho Mouse : 30min wait. Obviously going on a Sunday is suicide as far as lines go. A good wild mouse but a little brake heavy during the hairpin turns. The first two are good but then the brakes kick in.

Demon : 5 min wait for front seat. Wow! They were running two trains! Wow! They got a new train! Or maybe just new restraints. Whatever the reason, it seems a little smoother than last time through the corkscrews. I still wish they would bring back the scenery around the first two loops. Note to tall buzzers: If you are just not fitting into Arrow Loopers anymore, remember about the front seats in the first car. I'm 6'4" and I can still stretch out and have plenty of room!

Invertigo : 10 min wait for back seat. While I was in line I was telling my girlfriend about Deja Vu, and people seemed impressed. Luckily one guy who was a coaster freak mentioned that he was sick of the Boomerang-clones and Boomerang-type designs and he said he would have preferred something else at SFMM, although he and I concluded that they do need some sort of Shuttle Coaster because they don't really have one (S:TE doesn't count to me)

Vortex : 20 min wait for front seat. I'm sorry I keep going in the front seat, but my girlfriend isn't tall so she likes the front so she has a clear view. I think B&M is converting my girlfriend into a coaster fan, she thought Vortex was decent even though it's so short.

Stealth : 2 hour wait. Ugh. That wait ruined the whole ride. By the time we got on the ride we were just happy to sit down. It was almost 90 degrees out, and there is no shade in line (until the station). It was harsh. The ride is cool, but my girlfriend was upset that she didn't give the ride a  chance, she was so upset about the line. She wanted to come back another day (weekday) and ride it again, to have a more open mind about the ride. PGA really needs to build a second station like all the other Vekoma Flying Dutchmans have, to improve loading/unloading time because now it is hideous. I don't know about the rest of you but lying on the brake run with the sun in your face is sucks.

Grizzly : I am not riding that garbage if there is any line. Since there was, we didn't ride it.

A good but crowded day. Actually not too bad for a weekend, but on the weekdays almost all the rides are walk-ons.

If you got into the park right when it opened, and ran to Stealth, the line wouldn't be 2 hours.

Top Gun is the best invert I've been on! That's an amazing coaster. I agree about the front seat of any Arrow car, not the front of a train (which people always think I mean), but just the front of a single car. There is so much room to fit in, even my brother fits comfortably. I can't believe the line for Stealth was so long, that's too bad. I really hate lying in the brake run, especially since it stops so suddenly and all the blood rushes to your head, giving you a headache... *sigh*

Yeah, but it was a weekend. The last time I was at PGA was a Wednesday and I got there when the park opened. I rode Stealth 4 times with no wait, it was great! But yeah, after you've done that, waiting for 2 hours for the same ride almost makes you want to throw up, much more than any coaster ever could!

I agree about the front seat of any Arrow car, not the front of a train (which people always think I mean), but just the front of a single car. There is so much room to fit in, even my brother fits comfortably.

Hmmm... while the front seats are bigger, the front seats of the front car of the train is usually abnormally huge, because it has that slanted front. I am also kind of lucky that my head is above the OTSR's, so I don't pound my ears against them anymore (I do not miss that at all) although some OTSR's are big enough to hit the side of my face (B&M's.)*** This post was edited by djansi on 8/20/2001. ***

I ran to Stelth on Memorial Day and got the first train out. Cool thing was the ride had like a 30 minute wait all day! You never even told us how you liked Invertigo though! I love that ride, did you?

SFMM line cutters are the braviest in the world.

Todd, you always spell Stealth wrong. In that top five list you had going and in all your posts...
