S:UF at SFOG loaded pretty slow and the queue fills real quick. But at least it loads faster than Deja Vu. ;)

On the website it says that our drop is 109 feet and that the one in GADV is only 100 feet. I realize that this might be another Six Flags website mistake, but it may not be. Also it says that GADVS has three trains of seven rows. Then it says ours has two trains of eight rows. I don't see this being a web site mistake because they have altered the pph on both the websites accordingly. Does this mean that we will get the new loading system and they won't?

The facts are correct S&S - the new one will be taller, the trains will be longer, there will be less trains, there will be only one station, and the ride will induce less G-forces than previously.

Yes, but I am talking about the difference between the GADV and GAM supermans, not the one in Georgia.

If the stats on that press release sheet are correct, this is 38 feet longer than the other 2 S:UFs. Also, I can't believe that SFGAm's S:UF will only have 2 trains and 1,100 riders per hour. Do they not realize that SFGAm is one of the most crowded parks in America, and that they need all the capacity they can get??

SFGAdv's and SFGAm's are clones. There are no new loading systems for either ride. Both will run two trains with eight rows each. The capacity you see listed (1100pph) *may* be a bit of an underestimate, but it's probably accurate. I don't know what B:TR's theoretical capacity is, but its actual capacity should match up with S:UF's actual capacity fairly well.

Agreed, coasterdude318. These two rides are very similair, in many respects.

Holister, what the heck is a horeshoe? Consisdering that everyone else has totally ignored your posts, are you sure you know what you're talking about?

The element the train is in in the following picture of X-Flight is what Vekoma calls a horseshoe.

According to RCDB, all of the B&M flyers have a horseshoe. I guess those sweeping turns at the end of the ride are the horseshoes on S:UF.

You can put it on the board, yes!

I believe the horseshoes on S:UF are right after the pretzel loop. well, not right after, but after it turns and dives, it kinda sweeps up near the lift.
