Did I say I wasn't for it? Did I say I didn't want kids to have fun in the parks? Did I not say it was a good idea to re-theme the areas because of the unrelatability for todays kids to cartoon characters as old as I am?
Sure I said they have more stuff than I did when I was a kid but, I never said they didn't deserve it.
Keep your head high and your coaster's higher.
I never said waterpark bacteria was a SF problem. I simply referred to waterparks as bacteria filled. Not an incorrect statement.
Unless you live in a hermetically sealed bubble I'm guessing wherever you're posting from is "bacteria filled" as well. Just sayin'.
At the same time however, the park did add one of its most expensive attractions in 2005 (waterpark) coaster or not. Plus 2004 had the addition of the mardi gras section and revolution focusing more on what was previously lacking, flats. Not really sure where that leaves us but its just something to think about.
Superman.... Can it be considered a clone? Sure there are three now but in reality the original design of the roller coaster was for SFGAm. So really SFGAm's cant be considered a clone can it? Just like Batman, thats not a clone, but it is everywhere in the world now. As for supermans popularity, you can't talk about how people dont like the ride, and point out its long lines as a reason they arent riding, because long lines means it is popular. In comparison to many other rides in the park, Supermans capacity is one of the better ones so dont state that as a reason for long lines.
In time, SFGAm will be getting its next huge roller coaster (right?) but for right now you just have to wait. Next year sounds like it will be a well rounded year for additions including a new thrilling experience that I'd be excited about, Operation Spy Girl. Sounds like it is going to be a top notch stunt show. Although you and some other season pass holders feel that SFGAm is getting a little stale, the guests are still coming and enjoying their experience. Correct me if im wrong but I believe that 2005 was one of the top attendence years in SFGAm history. I understand where you are coming from being worried about this coaster drought, but SFGAm will always have more up their sleeve to keep or bring back your interest.
Now, I bolded the words spare time. This means that hopefully no one on here is thinking about roller coasters 24/7. If you do, than it's become more than a hobby, it's obviously an obsession.
A satsified enthusiast: Intamin Fan's definition: A person who buys or rents a car, takes a train or a bus, or flies to another destination that may or may not have Six Flags either in its title or ownership.
It's not that we don't constantly talk about coasters, flats, darkrides and waterparks on here. It's that most of us have learned of ways of coping if we can't get what we want or expect at our local Six Flags.
If you haven't been paying attention (I don't mean this harshly), Six Flags is in a world of hurt financially. For them to keep building huge record-breaking coasters would be extremely irresponsible and could be the death of the chain. Do you want to see Great America become another housing development? I didn't think so.
There are always solutions. When your field of vision gets so narrow that you can't see beyond your local park, you've become unhappy and start playing a record with a needle stuck in a groove.
Two-hours south is a really funky park called Indiana Beach. If you haven't been, take a visit. They may not have any record-breakers, but I guarantee Cornball Express will put a smile on your face, and you'll quickly get back in line.
Enthusiast 1-My home park sucks.
Enthusiast 2-My park sucks even more, shut up!
E1-Na Uh My park (insert lame reason for why said parks sucks here) so duh of course my park sucks!
E2-(Insert a rather good retort here) (follow it with a decent reason their park sucks) so obviously my parks sucks and youre a whiny baby
E1-(Completly ignoring E2s proof) Well my park (another lame excuse) so mine sucks more.
