What was wrong with my thread on SFFM X?

Tuesday, February 13, 2007 1:57 AM
Hello!

Don't believe any TOS rules were broken on my question in the post.

Don't believe the link posted as as answer to nmy post actually really answered my question.

In the next two weeks, me and my son can visit SFMM.

When would be the best date AND TIME for us to visit so he can increase his chances of riding X? We all understand that this ride is difficult to get a chance to experience.

I don't know what I did, or said wrong in the original post. I sure hope this isn't locked also.

Thanks!

Sunday, according to a friend of mine who went. Crowds were virtually nonexistant. Despite the lack of crowds my friend waited about 90 mins. In that time the ride shut down twice for about 10-15 mins.

I'm sure the park has every intention of operating the ride as often as they can, especially considering it's only open weekends and holidays right now. But I wouldn't plan a trip with the sole purpose of riding X. The ride has a history of downtime and is maintenance-heavy.

As with ANY ride at ANY park there is never, ever a guarantee that it will be in operation the day you visit.


Agreed.

Thus the question, if given 2 weeks, when would be the best time to TRY?

Sorry for the repost, but this is a genuine question.

Thought CBrs would like to help fellow coaster nutz.

The nice moderator pointed you to this thread, instead of starting a new one... ;)

Yeahh ,,, uhmm... but ...

There is NO actual information on the current wait times for X, nor is there any information to suggest the wait may or may not be any better at any time of day; or any day of week.

Nor is there any indication of how any of this may change in the next 14 days.

Give my kid a chance?
Give me a second chance?

PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE!

Dude it's all good, everyone on this board hates the newcomers and find every single rule they break. It's like a game to them... You should go to another forum and ask the same question, which will give you more answers.

To answer your question, the mornings are the shortest wait times, but sometimes the coaster doesn't even open up until later in the day so plan on waiting for a ride that might not even open. I guess they have been pretty good on operating the ride lately, but you just never know.

Why do you think don't post anything vary often.

It's a great site, I just wish some of the coaster buffs here were not so full of themselves.

I think It'd be nice to have a thread or forum for the newbies to familiarize themselves with the site and become comfortable with posting here, without all the vets jumping down your throats like hall monitors with power complexes.

But what do I know? I can't even tell the difference between the trolls and some of the legitimate posters anymore.

This would be BAD.

Those that have been around, and those on the other end of the computer, SHOULD know my user name and password.

I haven't posted in a while...

That does NOT mean I haven't been reading these forums for a VERY VERY VERY LONG TIME.

Just wanted some comments based on first hand experience and found for the first time that my post got shot down instead.

I suppose if this if this current trend that I believe the LA Times instead of the members of this site.

The FIRST place I came was CB. I didn't trust the LA times to be correct.

Has this forum changed THAT much?

Whoa, time out!!

All I did was re-direct you to another thread that was going on with the topic of X and SFMM in general. You didn't break any rules or violate the TOS.

Just ask the question you want answered over at that topic. It will get bumped back to the top. We don't need multiple threads on the topic of X.

What is against the rules is starting a new thread asking why another thread was closed. *** Edited 2/13/2007 8:10:08 AM UTC by Chitown***

Lol yea it has. I've been on here forever too, but I don't post as much as I used to. When I do post something, I only do it if I have something important to me. I'm too worried I'm might tick someone off or something.

No, I'm pretty sure CB is the same it's always been. If you post a question already answered and your thread was locked, people don't think twice--it's happened to the best of us. If you start another thread asking what was wrong with your first one, people start wondering if you're a tool.

Your problem seems to be that you think we can read your mind. When you ask whether X was open, we assume you're wondering if X was open, something that was answered in the topic you were linked to. You never mentioned anything about best time to ride in the first thread, so you really can't argue that they didn't answer your questions about it.
