Was just making a little stop over at SFMW and noticed the parts of a Schwartzkoph shuttle loop in the parking lot. This is only the second time I've been through the parking lot, but I definitely didn't notice it on Fri. (which was the other time).
The supports were light blue and the track was a puke green (Mindbender came to mind). I couldn't tell if it was weight drop or fly wheel.
The trains were light bluish with a lightning bolt on each side and the back of each car.
For some reason I want to say that this was Tidal Wave, but I also seem to remember Tidal Wave having yellow track.
Anyone know more?

They need to send it back "home". I know it wasn't born at SFGAm, but it was at the other Great America. I didnt realize how I miss Tidal Wave until I got to catch a lap on Monty's Revenge this past saturday.
Which ones are the better ones, the flywheel or the weight drop?
And judging from what others have written about SFKK, I don't really trust that park too much. I have contemplated stopping there the Sunday after Beastbuzz, but I think I might skip it and drive straight to Holiday World for my first ever visit there.
I rode both Montezooma's revenge and Greased Lightning and I have to say the flywheels have more kick (Greased Lightning launches at 57mph and Montezooma at 60mph) Plus you go a lot higher on the back spike which = more air.
