We had friends visiting from Virginia who have PKD and SFA as their home parks. So we decided to take them to a REAL Six Flags park.
Goliath-They loved it, and the crew was really moving. As soon as one train would hit the mid course another train would be on the lift.
Batman-Short wait, and still as intense as ever.
Riddler-Fast crew without stacking. What a suprise.
Viper-Smoother than the last time I rode it.
Colossus-Nice nighttime ride. They Psyclone trains are sitting on the transfer track all waiting for fright fest.
Superman-One side as usual with an hour wait. Normally I would've skipped it but I had out of towners with me and I couldn't let them miss out. It was making a really loud screaching noise yesterday.
Revolution-Should've skipped it.
Jet Stream-Short wait.
Log jammer-Short wait.
Our friends LOVED the park and want to go again on their next visit to So-Cal. While going up the lift hill on Viper I was surveying the land for the new coaster. And I can already can tell that MM is going to do one of their infamous coaster squeezes. Which means Viper will be upstaged just like Goliath upstaged Colossus.

I was there on 9-30 and it sucked. As my home park, I never recognized how stupid SFMM has gotten. First, checked out Goliath. Long line so then we got a soda ($2.50, a rip off), then got a COLD pretzel. Piece of crap. Then went on Orient Express to go to S:TE (long line), then ate dinner. Went on RR, awesone ride as usual. That queue line goes pretty fast. Went on Goliath around 9:00. It was awesome at night!!! The zig-zag queues werent open so it was a fast line. Great airtime on the first drop, (sat in the back) and +g's o the helix.
I only was there for 5 hours because I only live 3 miles away!
