You mean because corporate didn't buy one for them.

We all know that they were originally gonna add a B&M stand up but of course Batwing replaced the ride in 2001 instead,however SF is running out of parks that do business with B&M (ie SFMM,SFGRADV etc) & these parks have just about everything B&M makes so if SF wishes to continue to do any business with B&M then they should soon start to add their products to the mid sized parks in the chain (ie SFA,SFDL) these two are the only large but overlooked parks that can support such rides.

I'm thinking we might,just might see a floorless at SFA in 04,05 because now that SFGRADV has S:UF it kinda takes the edge off of Batwing & they'll need some new type of coaster to market at SFA if they want to remain competitive,also SF is running out of parks in the chain to add a floorless to as well,nearly all their major parks except for SFNO,SFOT SFA & SFDL have them already.

With all due respect, I think SFoG is a major park and they don't have a floorless OR a hyper. ;)

Yes SFOG is a major park,more so in the eyes of corporate than SFA is at this point.

Unlike SFA however SFOG already has three B&M's a flyer,stand up & an inverted while SFA has yet to build anything from B&M.

Sorry I forgot to mention SFOG as a candidate to recieve a floorless sooner or later,I guess I was focused soley on the major SF parks that already have them.

SS, that was some awful grammar, my friend. Anyway, to answer your question, it's because you don't have to have a B&M to be competitive. King's Dominion doesn't have one either. It's amazing, I know, that people still go to those parks without one. (sarcasm)

The same reason Kennywood, Knotts, Worlds of Fun, Valleyfair, MIA, PKD and others do not have one. They simply didn't feel the need for one...
