Looks good. It is sure a lot better than a year ago. :)

DawgByte II's avatar Well, Darien Lake & Elitch Gardens have essentially not been updated. It will re-direct you to their old-style page...

...but makes you wonder just WHEN they're going to [PARC] launch the 'official' pages for Darien Lake & Elitch Gardens.

The download PDF map for SFKK is *STILL* the fricking 2003 map!

It's look nice, but some of the information is not available like locations of the rides, or flash pass for my park.

The thing I always hated when going to some amusement park website like Six Flags is that they have pictures, and some descriptions for the roller coasters, and the new rides, but they don't have pictures of the flat rides. It's like, those aren't important. So, I have to go to a fansite to look for what exactly those rides are.

It's notorious with Six Flags. Go to Six Flags Mexico, however, and they have what every ride looks like. Well, they used to at least. I'm not a Cedar Fair fanboy, buy Cedar Point is the way it should be done as in you can see all the rides in pictures, and not just descriptions in which you guess what ride could that be if you haven't been to the park before.

crazy horse's avatar Kind of interesting that if you click the six flags in louisiana, it brings up a "page not found" messege.

Overall I like the look of the new site, but the one thing I miss already (unless I just haven't found it yet) is the big map that used to be on the pick a park page. I like being able to geographically see where each park is located. Not a huge deal, just my $.02.

^^There's a lot of irony in that comment. :)

The site is a lot better than the old one. For the first time I don't have to fiddle with IE/Firefox/WMP to get the videos to work. Flash sites work well when done right.

I see they've borrowed some ideas from Busch, such as the Fun Planner. My friend called me yesterday to tell me the Busch Gardens Europe site had be redone, and they have something similar where you could add flags to major attractions or add attractions to a list of things you want to do.

I like it, much easier to navigate, with some cool new features to boot. Nice job!

I still can't stand seeing photos of others parks when you bury down to a specific park. But the changes as a whole are great.

crazy horse's avatar Disney does the trip planner as well.

I like that option.

CP has a trip planner, but they do a very bad job of updating it year to year. Troika and Chaos still aren't removed from the Dragster Midway.

Does this new website mean that SF will have to raise the parking price to $20.00?

There's still a lot of stuff that needs to be tweaked. For instance:http://www.sixflags.com/magicMountain/Rides/Ninja.aspx

Apparently GAm is finally getting Q-bot. Excellent :)

Edit: Correction. Apparently they aren't. They need to change that first paragraph, cause I got excited.

Tricky f*cks.*** This post was edited by rOLLocOASt 3/21/2007 11:34:57 PM ***

From at user stand point, I also miss the "Pick a Park" map.

That was the one thing I was happiest to see gone.

eightdotthree's avatar Yeah, the map was not very usable. Its one of those things that seem to make sense to a designer, but once they are in use, don't make as much sense.

My only complaints are that I wish you could get to the hours easier, and get to other parks without going back to the homepage. All in all it is a much better site and a real improvement. You don't always see that in a re-design.

I really like the new website, however, there are a few things that I noticed. SFA is my home park so I checked out the rides page there and it says that the capacity of S:ROS is only 32. I was thinking that they might have only displayed the capacity of one train, but when I checked out other S:ROS rides, the capacity was for 2 trains. Do you think SFA's S:ROS is only going to be running 1 train, or could this just be a mistake?

I know this is petty, but its something that came to my attention. I know that that ride had problems with 2 train operation before.
