Monday, July 29, 2002 4:40 PM

SFGAm July 28th 2002 - 12th trip this year

ARRIVED: 9:00 a.m.

LEFT: 10:40 p.m.

PARK APPEARANCE/ATMOSPHERE: Great as always.

RIDE QUEUE TIMES: Packed from opening to about an hour before closing.

BEST EXPERIENCE: Eagle Backwards with almost no trims at all!

WORST EXPERIENCE: Waiting over an hour for Deja Vu to open after we saw it testing around 1p.m.. I wasted alot of my energy beating everyone to the ride in the morning only to have it not open on time :( .

MOST PLEASANT SURPRISE: Taking a trip out to the employee parking lot and finding Sky Whirls cages and PowerDive. I also took some pics here they are:}

Sky Whirl Cages

BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT: Not getting to ride Whizzer with only a few weeks left to ride it. I kept waiting for the line to get shorter but it never did therefor I never rode.
Also due to the lines I didn't get to ride Batman TR.


COASTER RANKINGS

In my opinion every coaster was without flaw today! Very fun day of coasting!

Raging Bull
The usual great ride provided by Bull.

Deja Vu (Deja Vu Count for this year is now up to 23!)
2 awesome rides in Row 1a and the second in row 1b at night. After it finally opened at around 1 p.m. it ran great with no problems at all. For anybody who hasn't rode Deja Vu yet, ride it in the front it is by far the best seat on the train and worth any wait for.

Iron Wolf
2 weeks in a row this ride has provided a Awesome ride. It gives some great airtime in right before the corkscrew taking your feet right off the floor! and after coming to my feet very carefully after the airtime I enjoyed the rest of the ride headbanging free.

Viper
2 Awesome rides, 1 in back and 1 in 1:3. I almost lost my keys when they fell out of my pocket I ended up trying to stay in my seat sitting on them during the end of my ride in the backseat. Very hard to stay seated in the last row of the train!

ShockWave
4 rides on this, the ride just kept getting better and better. I have no complaints at all, and for the second Sunday in a row this ride had a longer line than Bull in the afternoon. I couldn't help but laugh at all the people waiting in line for it, not knowing they would be able to just walk right onto it later in the day.

Demon
Great Airtime on the first drop as usual and a really fun ride after that.

V2
This was my first time riding it at night this year and its alot better at night, especially when you look up as your going up the spiral tower and you see all the lights from the park going around you.

American Eagle (Blue and Red)
Red gave a Airtime filled ride and Blue gave a Trimless Airtime filled ride on my second ride on it of the day. Its odd how the ride can change throughout the day.

MAJOR NON-COASTER ACTIVITIES: Magic Quest, Fiddlers Fling, Train, Sky Trek Tower

Cool pics. Why did they let you go into the employee parking lot? Sounds like fun.

Wow Spacecase8310 a ride op at Deja Vu said the same exact line when I was joking around about how High tech seatbelts are, since the people behind me couldn't get them buckled. SFgadvMAN they didn't let us go back there, we just kind of wandered back there.

Deja Vu Count = 23
