TWO B and M's for SFA in 2001

Monday, October 9, 2000 3:33 PM
Has anybody read this: http://www.thrillride.com/WildRumors/WildRumors.html
If so had you read the part about SFA getting a Stand-up (Riddler's Revenge) AND a floorless (Batman Knight Flight) next year! That would be so cool!

Yeah, I read those rumors for entertainment value ONLY. There is little to no truth in most of it(except when I send stuff in, then its all good).

I doubt that SFA will be getting a new coaster in 2001, though I wouldn't mind a new couple B&Ms 20min. from my house. In 2002, however, I think the sky's the limit w/ what SFA will put in(or that 200 foot restiction).

For what its worth, the rumor mentioned colorful "track" past Roar's first drop. I believe that area is the remains of the old theming of the kiddie area named "A Day at The Circus." All rides from the old kiddie area have been removed or rethemed, and I think that is the leftover THEMING, but I don't believe there are any rides over there(or any track), but I will certainly keep an eye out when I go to SFA at somepoint during the rest of the season.

Thanks for finding my rumor coastergenius. I would like to clarify that this was one proposal that I had heard from someone who knew some of the parks manegers(not Sam A. Marks for those who are interested). The ground for the Standup has already been sculpted, right next to Superman, with the entrence and exit going around the Krypton Komet.

I hope they do get a Stand-Up next year. SFA needs at least two more good coasters to be up to par with the other SF parks.

SFAGuy, I dont know what that stuff is by ROAR. But I have seen it. There is something very boxlike that is yellow on the outside, and red on the inside. For example, if you are in line for Joker's Jinx, waiting for the last car, look right over the right shoulder of the giant robot (you'll know what I'm talking about when you see it) and past Wild One. You can clearly see something, I have no idea what it is, but the color scheme would fit in with a circus themed ride.

BTW: Sam has said that there are proposals submitted in a 'blanket plan' (i.e. no timeframe) for an 80 foot enclosed coaster. Could they be enclosing the old Python, since they havent gotten rid of the track yet? *** This post was edited by 2Hostyl on 10/10/2000. ***

a mine train type ride in back of the sea coaster on the patch of asphalt that used to be the cirus site.

I'd like to see SFA add more employees for 2001 instead of a coaster. That way they could run everything at once.

So it's true Wild One? What about the Floorless rumour?

I know what your talking about 2hostyl. It's just theming for the train thing for the fight fest

As I said, I heard this from a guy i meet at the park who SEEMED to know what he was talking about. The floorless would be in what is curently the maitenence yard, making for a semi-circle around the park from the floorless to Superman.I had also heard a rumor of the waterpark being moved to near where the farmer used to live, so the current area could be another big theme site.

coaster genius: no, this thing that I am talking about has nothing to do with the train or nay rides (I rode both). This thing looks like it is actually located behind the restaurant in Coyotte Creek. The robot is for the train. But this whatever is way past all this stuff. Maybe SFAGuy & Wildone can keep an eye out when they go this weekend (hint hint)

Hmmm..... Might any of you recall B&M saying something about no more stand-ups?

Thursday, October 12, 2000 11:31 PM
I thought B&M was just RECOMMENDING that parks not buy Stand-Ups as their first choice.

I seriously doubt that SFA is getting any major coaster next year. After building Roar in '98, Joker's Jinx & Two-Face in '99, and Superman this year, I'd say they've earned a year off from the coaster wars. They could always a wild mouse or a family coaster, but the next major one probably won't happen until 2002 at the earliest.

Of course, I would never have thought they would build a hyper this year, so I guess anything is possible.

Why would B&M recommend not to choose a Stand-Up coaster. It's seems as if they want to eliminate this coaster from their lineup. I find that strange.

I actually heard from a SFA ride op that they were going to build coaster every year, she also metioned the Stand-up, and the waterpark moving to the back.

Now forgive me, this is off topic, but I think that B & M's are no longer top of the line.

For a while, i would look at B&Ms like the best steel and CCI as the best wood, but now i like Intamin and GCI...

B&Ms have REALLY been toned down. The original B:TR has some intense forces, and you can feel it. the new floorlesses feel like nothing, and lately ive noticed that B&Ms are now totally lacking airtime.
i think ill take a good schwartzkopf over a midsized beemer.

I don't really think B&M loopers were built for airtime.
