First of all let me say that PGA disappointed me, while on the other hand SFMW was one of the best parks I've been to. With that said lets get into the TR.
First of all this park was dirty. I mean real dirty. There was gum and garbage everywhere(I know that's at every park, but this was worse). Secondly, the crews weren't fast at all. It took them longer to load invertigo than the ride took place. The bottom line is that the ride crews sucked(No offense to anyone who works there). Lastly, the people at PGA seemed to be a little ruder than the people at SFMW(I don't want to offend anyone, but this trip showed me that California has some messed up people, again if you disagree with me, go right ahead).
TOP GUN-6-Fun ride, but too short. The first drop is cool, but I think that there were too many slow parts of the ride. I would take Batman over it any day.
GREEZED LIGHTNING(Probably spelled it wrong)-8-This was better than I thought it would be. The loop gives you a weird feeling in your stomach. The best part: NO lines.
STEALTH-10-I guess I'm a sucker for innovative rides, because I couldn't get over how cool Stealth really was. I bet many people would disagree with me, but the concept of that ride just surprised me with how cool it was.
PHYSCO(not a good speller) MOUSE-5-Fun little ride that is worth waiting for. Nothing new, and nothing special, just fun.
GRIZZLY-0-I'm not even going to write about this one.
DROP ZONE(I know it's not a roller coaster-7-I love Intamin drop rides. You cannot beat the 100 percent grade drop(took that from the sign).
INVERTIGO-6-I liked the ride a lot, but the horrible crew mixed with the horrible capacity is not a good mix.
DEMON-5-Same thing as Demon at GA(Hmmm, I wonder why?, j/k)
VORTEX-2- Hated this ride. Head banging galore. That's all I have to say about that.
I don't think I missed any of the major rides.
The overall atmosphere was not good. NOW let's get on to better things. ;).
SFMW-10-I don't have any complaints with this park. except the parking. Put it closer the park for gods sake, We had to walk 1 mile to the park from where we parked!
MEDUSA-10-Best B&M ride that I've ever been on. the floorless idea is really cool, especially if your in the front. Color scheme is sweet, and the ride is as smooth as glass throughout the whole course.
KONG-6-Not as bad as I thought it would be. It just wasn't anything spectacular.
V2-8-Would have given this ride 10 but the holding break wasn't working. That is my favorite part of the ride. Still one heck of a ride though. Acceleration of out the station is awesome. A must-ride as is Medusa.
ROAR-7-This is one TWISTED roller coaster. I had no idea it was going to be like that. you have to love it though. I mean cruising thorough tunnels while going one way then another, it's great. Defentily worth the wait.
Boomerang-5-Just like every other one, I like them though.
One thing that was really nice about the park was the mix if GREAT roller coasters and awesome flat rides. Voodoo, Hammerhead Shark, and Tasmanian Devil were all better than I expected. Some of them were quite scary, ;). The food was pretty good for amusement park food.
The bottom line is that SFMW is worth the visit, while PGA is just another park(IMO). Finally I'm done typing this thing, lata.

Batman over Top Gun? Did you sit in the front? Are you joking?!? ;) Anyway, too bad you were disappointed by PGA. I actually liked it about 10 times better than I thought I would. I agree about your Marine World assessment, however, except I would have give Roar a higher rating. I'm glad you at least enjoyed yourself at SFMW.

Werid how PGA was dirty and the employies wren't nice, I usually here and experiencee the exact opposite! I know the crews are slow but I have always found them friendly.Invertigo and Top Gun have real slow crews like you said. Top Gun MUST be ridden in the front seat same with Vortex, werid you gave the description that you did becuase it has been getting much better reviews this year and the head bangging doesn't hurt but of course you would have to go out of your way to avoid this by riding in a certain possition, anyway I think you still enjoyed a few rides at PGA!

I feel that PGA has the quantity, while SFMW has the quality.
