SFGAm thought...

Wednesday, August 14, 2002 11:00 AM

I saw the first part of this a while back, and I think this may answer a few questions.

In 2001, SFGAm purchased two shuttle coasters. Which means: Less track, less trains, which adds up to- LESS MONEY! And that means more to spend.

People ask "Why remove Shockwave when we have so much room? We could put coasters in some of those places AND in Shockwave's, so we might have 2 or 3 rides (this would bring up the total too). Remember when I brought up "attractionS" that was in the Whizzer removal recording? This may be why.

I may be wrong, but you'd like to believe me, wouldn't you?

Thought in general - There are numerous threads about SFGAm, space at the park, Shockwave, what's coming in 2003, etc. Just put your thoughts in one of those threads.

Its a little confusing. First off, Shockwave removal is just a rumor. And believe me, V2 or Deja Vu weren't "cheap coasters". They both have new revolutionary designs that cost a lot of money. Deja Vu had its problems, which cost a lot of money to fix. V2 has LIMs, which don't come cheap.

Let me get something, basically what you are saying is, because they got two shuttle coasters in 2001 which isn't as expensive, they will get more than one ride for 2003?.
I doubt they are getting more than one ride, and this one ride is probably a Superman clone.

And I dont think they are going to get a clone, With SFGAm they are probably gonna get something new, the same type, but no clones. SFGAm isnt known for those clones.

Well, except for Viper, V2, Deja Vu, Spacely, Demon, Shockwave (been basically cloned), and B:TR (been cloned). But I know what you're saying and no - it won't be a clone.

Well, even if the shuttles didn't cost as much as full sized coasters, SFGAm doesn't really control what money they spend. SF basically takes care of money spent on new rides, buildings, wahtever, so just because they saved money buying shuttles not two full sized coasters, SF still controls how much money is used on the park.

Nate: How many times are you gonna flip-flop around here? I thought you were "FO' SHO'" that a S:UF clone was going into Whizzer's spot. And moreover that S:UF was *desigined* specifically for that plot of land. Now the coaster is a *new* design in a *new* space. Is it a *new* coaster too?

I dunno, maybe it's just me only being an "Engineering Intern", but unless the coaster *is* a "production model" type, I dont see them cranking out the design-engineering-construction all in the next 9 months. It takes that long to make a baby, and I'm SURE God is a much better engineer than B&M!

LOL! To say I was surprised at the move from Whizzer's site would be an understatement.

I shouldn't say I know "for sure" that it isn't a clone, but I'm told SFGAdv's won't be so I assume SFGAm's won't be either. As it turns out, it looks like the S:UF being designed for Whizzer's site was completely bogus, but a flyer *was* intended (and designed) to go in there. That's why I'm sure they chose to relocate to Shockwave's site, since it's an empty, flat plot of land with no obstacles to work around (meaning a re-design isn't necessary).

I agree... we've got plenty of these already.
