There is a ride at SFGadv called, I beleive, Evolution. It is an enormous ride which looks kind of like an oversized swinging pendulum ride (like Tomahawk at SFNE). My question is who has ridden this and what is it like. I've been to SFGadv 4 times in the past 2 years and this ride has been closed (along with Viper) every time.

This ride is nauseating. Its real fun though! lol. Really its a great ride that spins and then lifts up into the sky then stops then comesback down, still spinning, I have no idea who made it.
You'll look back at this day and laugh.

The ride was built by Nautta Bussink (hopefully the correct spelling) There primary output is giant ferris wheels. I too have not been able to ride four times in three years, but I've been told that it is awesome, and for a flat-ride junkie as myself, it's supposed to be one of the best.-------------
The word "definitely" is definitely the most misspelled word on the buzz.

Evolution is a ride built by Nauta Bussink. I've ridden the ride before and it is one awesome experience. Basically, it's a Huss Enterprise on steroids. I love the ride, and I can't wait for it ot be up and running at a normal schedule.

Why is it always down? Have their been mechanical problems, safety problems? I just hope its open when I go this year

It's a very high maintanence ride, and it likes to break down a lot (especially in hot weather, which is why you've likely hardly seen it run during the summer). It was working last season up until June and hasn't been open since, it was testing last fall, but never opened to the public. As far as this season goes, it won't open at the start of the season, but they are "working on it."

I got on it during the summer of 2000. Everytime I went it was closed, but then it was open and I was sooooooo excited! Its a great ride in my opinion. When the thing gets to the top it stops for like 20 seconds so you are like facing downwards at a 45 degree angle. Its really amazing! Too bad its closed so much.

Actually, Evolution did open up 2 of the 80 + times I went to the park in 2001. I rode it both times. It isn't a totally lost cause...

Well, there was this one scene where David Duchovny punches an alien, and the look on his face pretty much screams: "I knew I should have stayed on the X-Files." I thought it was a lame movie.
Oh, a ride called Evolution....never been on it.
