I got to the park at about 9:30 and it was already crowded. I thought it was the morning rush but I was wrong.
When we were let into the park we ran to Deja Vu and we were in the station within 5 minutes. We waited for front row, and after 4 trains, it broke down. The break down was supposedly just "cleaning up blood," but I was too far too see. It was about a 20 minute delay. We waited about an hour before we actually got on. The ride was fun in the front row, but not as good as I thought it would be. 7/10
They had just opened Splash waterfalls, so we rode it since it was so hot. We waited about 15 minutes. Fun, not much to say. 5/10
We then went to make our appointment at Dare Devil Dive.
Next we went to the other side of the park, we wanted to get Loggers run in before we dried from Splash Waterfalls. We waited an astounding 45 minutes. 6/10
We ate lunch in the car.
It was about 2:00pm so we went to viper. As you know, I usually don't like riding Viper because of the annoying station. But that has changed! When we got in the station there was an employee there. She said "How many is in your group," and i said "5," and she told us to go in any row. It was so empty in the station. I really liked the "semi-assigned seating." It made it less crowded, you knew which row you were in, and you knew you weren't cutting in front of people. Oh yeah, the ride was great too! 10/10
We then went on Raging Bull. We waited 45 minutes. We sat last row. It was Fun. 8/10
Next was AE backwards. Waited 30 minutes. We got to race, so it was fun! 7/10
Next we rested for 30 minutes.
Then onto Dare Devil Dive. I love this ride. The ride-ops were hard to understand on the paltform. One of them had an accent and the other mumbled heavily. The kept giving us directions, and it was hard to understand. They were the rudest employees I have ever encounterd at SFGAm. After all that I still believe the ride was very fun. 9/10
Next was V2. We waited 30 minutes. When we finnaly got into the station, and picked our rows, We watched the train go. It blasted off with great speed and suddenly stalled half way before it reached the twisted spike. I felt sorry for the riders who were on it and had to suddenly stop while going almost 70mph. They tested it within 5 minutes and it did the same thing. They tested it one more time and it worked fine. So we were on in 3 trains after that and all I can say is, "I love this ride, no matter what!" 9/10
I think the park was really crowded today for a Tuesday. It was more crowded than opening weekend. The lines weren't too bad but the midways were crowded.
Note: There was a banner over Whizzer's sign that Reads:
Bon Voyage. Thanks for the memories. Ride Whizzer for the last time on August 11.
It was sad to see the sign.
V2 can't be compared to any of the rides in SFGAm!The Vertical Drop was amazing!

Seems to me that 'bon voyage' means it is going somewhere... Other than the scap heap.
I was there today, too. Basically I just rode Bull a lot, Viper once, and Deja Vu. Never really strayed outside of that area. I was too scared to go to V2/Batman because I saw the insane line for DEMON.
Yes, Demon. Back me up on this one... :)
Thank You for challenging TOS: The Ride. We hope you enjoy the rest of your day, here at SFCB.
