Ok, so it's not a trip report, it's a "drive-by report", but I don't get down by SFGAm very often.

Yesterday, all of the Pre-Calc classes in my school went on a field trip to an exploratorium in a high school in Illinois. That means we drove past SFGAm both ways! Man, I didn't remember being able to see so many coasters! Besides the obvious (RB, AE, Viper, and the Giant Drop), V2 and DV were plainly visible, and I could also see Shockwave, Demon, and IW (I think). Also, I noticed that, even though the park is closed, the observation tower car was at the top of the tower, not moving. Is it stored there during the off-season or something?

All in all, it was nice to see my home park again. Can't wait until the youth group trip!

RCT hypercoaster crazy!

I was amazed when I went back to CP how you can see everything from everywhere because of the lack of leaves on the trees.  I'm not sure which way I like better.  I'm leaning toward with leaves - especially in the summer because they provide some shade... :)

Yes, they always put the cabin at the top of the Sky Trek tower during the off-season. The tollway is the only spot where you can get a great view of the park(besides the parking lot). When you are going down Grand Ave. or Washington St., the view isnt as good.
"The Peoples Elbow" or "The Spinaroonie?. Cant decide which is the most electrifying move in sports entertainment!!! LOL
