Yes we definitely should do a California trip. Another coaster that has really caught my interest lately is Flight Deck (Top Gun) at California's Great America. The corkscrew with the lower exit and immediate helix looks insane!

^ true. I was just waiting for CF to move it to Kings Island, but I suppose that is no longer in the cards.

CGA is like the 7th best park in the area though isn't it? Knotts, has to be the 2nd option after SFMM.

Nope, Tatsu is the THE RIDE!

I love me some Revolution and Ninja, but IMO Tatsus is the best B&M of all time!

I think we need a Vegas/SFMM trip Shoe... 2014 perhaps? lol

AV- I'm guessing I would end up liking tatsu more. X just looks so impressive. Oh but wait you were talking about ninja, and revolution... am I close? ;)

^ Wow just had my mind blown by something!

You said tatsu was your fav b&m.. I tried to picture you on Tatsu and it seemed strange. Then I thought about it. Check this out... I have riddin with/seen you on 8 coasters in total. ALL of them wooden. Never once seen you on a steel coaster.

Voyage, Raven, Legend, Phoenix, Twister, Boulder Dash, Wildcat, and Wooden Warrior. All pretty awesome (minus wildcat).

First steel likely Behemoth/Leviathan/Vortex... Or possibly Viper at Darien, Dragon Mt, or Steel Dragon at Waldemeer.

zoomerang was the best chance so far of it happening, or holidog bone trail or whatever it's called. lol

I've been on both Manta and Tatsu and I have to agree. Tatsu was amazing mostly because of the setting and I thought it was one of, if not the best of the sfmm big coasters.

The setting makes all the difference for Tatsu. Flying high above the park is amazing! So much better than I ever imagined a flyer could be!

I haven't been to SFMM since Tatsu was almost half way done being built. I want to wait to see if what I'm told Deja Vu's replacement is true before I fully decide. Disney's World of Color is almost enough for to just so Eff it and go.

And LOL at Holidog Bone Trail coaster. :)


Yeah, that sucks about Chiller...I hate to see it like that. Hey, so we should get a group picture or something ok. I'll call you later!

P.S.

The Test Track-esque ride will be the most expensive ride to date. Costing nearly 200 million dollars to build.

I've heard a few things the that area of the park (SFMM). I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Rob, X2, supes 2.0, tatsu and terminator are all reason enough to go IMO. And with DCA becoming a must visit park in 2012, it looks like a great year to head out. Btw- I'll never say Chang is rough after riding Riddler again. Great ride but one of the roughest B&M's I've ever been on. Viper (@SFMM) was smoother.

Sorry, can't edit my posts using wap...

Yes, that REALLY sucks about log jammer. I know this is the random coaster talk thread but I had to mention how much that pisses me off. It would be no different than gadv ripping out the saw mill complex!

Rebuild it or something!

The best part of saw mill is the view it gives you from best of the west... and best of the west is where the pulled pork resides. I love pulled pork! lol

Basing this on one visit.

Wade, all those rides do seem like definite draws to go, and the new drop ride... but I'd hate to go there this year, and then see them announce what I'm hearing they're going to announce and kick myself over it.

I'm planning a spring SoCal visit.  Personally, I like X better than MF.  It's maybe 3 or 4 spots above.  X is in my top ten, but it is rough.  I think that one of those could be amazing if the kinks were fixed.

Still haven't done Tatsu.

Care to give a hint as to what you think SFMM is adding sometime in the future.
You do keep bringing it up.  There are all those rumors of a launch coaster.

SFMM needs flats badly. The drop tower is a good start but they are in serious need of more.

I'm thinking that Leviathan will now dominate that category. I'm planning an up north tour next year to stop at SFNE,CW and CP. The highlights will probably be Goliath and of course Leviathan. I cannot put into words how pumped I am for that ride.

I've got a feeling Leviathan will be fun, but can't picture it dominating the "speed coaster" category. It'll take a lot for top SFoG Goliath for me...

Matt, don't blame me for that mix up... You know where I got that info from :)


Ken, a hint... You can find something similar in Dallas and Sandusky.
(and as much as I want it to be true, Don't quote me on this yet)
