This is my first trip report so I'm keeping it short. Me and the wife bought our six flags passes back in May at SFKK with the purpose of going to as many SF parks we coud get to this year. Over the weekend we got the chance to visit our 3rd one SFGAm. Here is what we thought of the coasters.

Raging Bull: This was an Excellent coaster in both of our opinions. The airtime was GREAT! Especially in the back seat. We managed to ride it 6 times in the 2 days. I would be very happy if PKI got one of these.

Batman: This was our next favorite coaster in the park. I have always loved B&M inverted coasters, and to ride the first one ever was a treat. We only rode it once though, because of the long lines both days.

Superman Ultimate Flight: It's a good coaster, but I think we both agree that X-Flight at SFWOA beats it out. The pretzel roll was good, but the rest of the ride seemed boring.

V2: Not much to say on this one. I like these coasters, but I think there wearing out on me. Do love the brake on the straight spike.

Iron Wolf: I loved this coaster simply because of the constant speed and power, but the wife doesn't care for them to much. I felt honored to be on the first B&M ever.

Deja Vu: Unfortunatly we only got to ride this once, and when we did it broke down on us and left us stuck on the first spike for a couple of minutes. I liked the ride, but the wife never wants to ride it again.

Viper: We both really love this coaster. We were practically in the middle row and flying out of our seats the entire ride. It was also very smooth. This one moves into my top 5 wooden coasters easily.

American Eagle: We only rode the backwards one. We both liked the huge helix and how smooth it was, but it still felt like it was missing something. Maybe it could have used a little more airtime. Just an average wooden coaster to us.

Whizzer: This was a fun coaster and a unique experience. I've always loved the coaster where you got to put your love right in front of you. Unfortunatly when we hit the brake run at the end the seatbelt tightened up and hurt my wifes stomach. She eventually recovered and we both agreed that it was a fun family coaster.

I liked this SF park better than any I've been to. They kept all the rides running at max capacity, and the really tried to keep the park clean. Both days were very fun. We plan to go back next year.

Nicely put TR. Glad you enjoyed the rides there. You actually got lucky that you got on Deja Vu at least once. I've never been on it and I've been there every year since the ride opened.

I didn't skip Demon, but merely forgot it. We went on it right after we got off of Deja Vu. I liked Demon other than the fact it was very short. The tunnel with the lights was very neat. I wish we would have rode it at night. Guess we'll save that for next year. We didn't ride any Kiddie coasters, those kids looked like nuts with the park as crowded as it was.

Crowded is right. Unfortunately you picked the wrong week to go. This week is "Read to Succeed" which I think kids that read a certain amount of books receive a free one-day admission.

Thank God the next time I'm going those kids wont be able to. I guess thats why the park has been REALLY crowded the past week or so acording to some TRs.

I have yet to see a sig. that actually follows the rule: tell something about yourself. In fact, this one doesn't even do that.
