I have a question about Shockwave at SFGAM. I noticed a week ago when I was waiting in line (yes a line for shockwave) that shockwave has 4 storage tracks next to the the station. Why does it have 4 storage tracks when they only have 3 trains? Most coasters that I know of have one less or the exact same number of storage tracks to the number of trains. Whats the deal was shockwave suppose to have more trains? Has anyone else noticed this?

Hey, did anyone notice that Shockwave and Demon@SFGam are alot smoother? I enjoyed Shockwave so much when i went wednesday, and another thing...There was a line for Shockwave! It took us at least 45 minutes to ride it the first time, and 30 minutes the second time. Anyone know what is up?

I know I was at SFGAm a week ago and I noticed the same thing, atleast for shockwave. The demon was the same as usual. But Shockwave seemed much smoother and the line was about 30 minutes long.

Viper at Six Flags Magic Mountain has space for four trains (and up until 2000, there were four trains), but they could only run three trains at a time.

When I went to SFGAm in July, there was about 1 hour and 15 minute wait. Then the ride broke down and that sucked. Then the ride wasn't great and that just wasted a lot of time. Demon at SFGAm is smooth, which surprised me.

Me and my friend were there last week and we were thinking about the same thing. We couldn't quite remember, but we thought there used to be a black train as well as the red, blue, and yellow ones. Like I said, we couldn't quite remember, but that is what we thought. I was looking at the numbers on the sides of the cars and on one of the trains the numbers were 11-17, on another one they were 21-27, and on the third one they were 31-37. There was no 01-07 which could of been on the fourth train. This was just our thoughts.

I still think the Shockwave is one of the roughest coasters out there, and I have been on it 10 times this year,the speed brake before the boomerang is brutal!

Viper still has hour trains. Its just that they tend to dissappear for storage. Desperado is another that HAD four trains but the green one isnt used anymore and i guess is being used a parts train. The colors in use are magenta, blue, and yellow.
