I just got an e-mail for the rumors section of my website. It said that an SFNE crew was training on Medusa at SFGAdv a few weeks ago because a new floorless is going to be built at SFNE next year. I know that this kind of thing should be taken with a grain of salt, but I was wondering if anyone else heard about this.

How can you tell the difference between SFNE crew and SFGAV crew?

Ha! Six Flags train people an entire season in advance? That's rich.

This doesn't sound plausible at all.

This is the funniest thing I have ever heard. Why in the world would Six Flags pay seasonal employee's travel time to go to another park to operate a roller coaster. The only way this would happen would be during slow times when SFGADV may be open during the week while SFNE isn't open. SFGAM did this with SFSTL. It doesn't take that much effort to train an employee to run a ride, at most 16 hours and I am giving a lot of cushion for the slower trainee's.
Just keep dreaming.

Better yet, who already would be in a contract as a seasonal ride op for 2002??
