Wow!..I had no Idea SFMM was getting a new coaster. I feel out of the loop!. So what kind of coaster is it?

(By the way I'm new here and I just want to say I am a big fan of the website and its members!.I'm glad to be here!)

It's a B&M Flyer or B&M Dive-Machine.

SFMM already has a B&M Stand-Up, Invert, Floorless.

I highly doubt it would be a Hyper, mainly because they already have Goliath.

Maybe SFMM has bought a prototype B&M.....

Only if we can see the cross ties, then we can confirm if its a Dive Machine or a Flyer.

But like everyone said, I'm thinking for sure its a Flyer, if its a Dive. WOW that would be amazing. Could we be seeing a Diver comeback? Not that there were many made to begin with, but maybe we will see more in the future?

Yeah, keep throwing new rides at the park. I'm sure that will make it all better! It did wonders for SFWoA too!

/\ They took two years off from any capital expenditures. And consider how that park has installed a coaster every single year since 1997. The most recent ride they put in was in 2003, so they haven't been "throwing rides" at the park for awhile now.

/\ And before anybody takes a challenge at that statement, it was made official in a news article interview with a PR representative that Busch Gardens in Tampa Bay did actually made some sort of contract with Bolliger & Mabillard regarding the exclusitivity of the Dive Machine coaster in America, for an undisclosed amount of years.

A new ride isn't going to fix SFMM's attendance declines past it's first year of operation.

2003 isn't even two years, hardly time off from installing a new coaster.

As I said in another topic of this nature, it baffles me that a park that can't get a simple observation tower running for years, is hurting in the flat ride department, and can't get its current crop of coasters running on a regular basis, has no problem spending millions on a brand spankin new coaster.

Actually it's over 2 years. Scream opened 2 1/2 years ago. (4/12/03) By the time this new coaster opens 3 years will have passed between coasters.

For SFMM that's a long time.

With 3 years between major projects, it's great they foudn the time to fix things like Shockwave, the observation tower, customer service, etc.

Oh wait....

Oh wow, Silver Bullet just arrived at SFMM...;)

And *****ing at SFMM about adding coasters over improving the park is soooo 2001. We should expect it by now.

Yeah, and what does that matter in the grand scheme of things? (Referring to Mr.X's post)

Flashback sits there idle and rusting in the California breeze, and the monorail system also rusts away.

This park needs a whole heck of alot more than another steel creation. They have 16 coasters in the park and attendance continues to decline. What makes them think that this coaster will drive attendance? *** Edited 9/8/2005 2:05:47 AM UTC by Chitown***

I remember when they made that documentary back in 2001 I think. They made SFMM sound so great, so massive (which it still is), so perfect, so much better then CP. But, sadly its never going to be like that unless the make a HUGE over haul.

Mmmm. So expected. You show pictures of new ride parts, and the whiners and their usual "SFMM doesn't do this right doesn't do that right" rant comes in. Get over it people. The park's getting a new ride, and all this same old same old bash talking won't change a single thing! So why do it? It's not like we all haven't heard it 10,000 times already. Yes, the park should get other things taken care of before introducing a ride, admitted, but ew, the bashing got OLD YEARS ago.

The few that don't make a sarcastic comment everytime the park is brought up get sick to their stomach from it. Get over it!

And Peabody, SFMM did improve somewhat over the past three years without a new ride attraction, but because the damage done from many long years of poor infrastructure funding is going to take years to fix. *** Edited 9/8/2005 2:08:58 AM UTC by kRaXLeRidAh***

The point is Kraxl, why is the park investing millions on another steel coaster when they should know from recent installations that it doesn't drive up attendance?

I for one am not whining. In fact, if I visit again, I look forward to riding this new coaster but the fact remains that it's not the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow for this park.

I used to be a huge SFMM fan, making several cross country trips a year to visit since the 2000 Goliath opening. After my last visit, 6/2003, I was overly disappointed with the park and looking back, I could definately see how much the park had deteriorated. This new coaster just will not convince me to make the trek back to the Mountain. At this point, the only announcement that will get me back out there is going to have to be something like what SFGAdv had done earlier in the season about promising improved customer service and having every ride open. Until then, I will take my trips to SFGAdv, IMO one of the best SF parks I have been to. It is actually tied with SFGAm for my favorite SF park.

I didn't say it mattered. It was in response to somebody elses post in case you missed that part.

I was just posting facts not opinions.
