Were they all removed? I was just there last week and didnt see any of them. I really like flat rides...why would they remove them?
Pendilum was a GREAT great ride that was open quite often but had a poor location. You couldn't really see it since it was located behind bumper cars. I don't know why that ride was taken out but I sure do miss it.
They got rid of JJF too?
Pendulum was always open when I visited SFGAdv, but I never once saw Evolution or JJF run.
I haven't had the pleasure of rideing any frisbee (Pendilum) as of yet. I guess Hersheypark's claw is something like it though.
I was dissapointed in SFGAdv in '99 when they built all of those new rides (like 30?) and didn't even have the staff to opperate them all. What were they thinking? That was the last year I got to go there and out of all of the new rides, only JJF, Chaos, Medusa, and Topspin were open. Some weren't even built yet.
I wish some parks knew that not everyone gets to visit their parks 20 times a year.
Sorry for the angry rant. I accually like SFGAdv and am planning a trip there next year for the new secret coaster.
Don't get me wrong SF gr8 adv is my favorite SF park that I have visited, but I have yet to make it to Gr8 Am, and Magic mountain.
As long as they keep the coasters staffed as they do I'll be happy. They do a good job at that.
Most people only visit once or twice a season, so they don't care if all 30 rides are open, because they'd never be able to get to them all anyway. As long as they keep enough for one full day open, everyone's happy except the few enthusiasts who regularly go.
The first time I ever went to SFGrAd was last summer, and the day I happened to be there was the first day it had opened for the season. Just by riding it, you could tell that it was a maintenance nightmare.
Im sure the biggest problem they had with it would have been the hydrolic arms.
I wonder if Sledgehammer, a HUSS Jump2, is working any better at Canadas Wonderland...
