SFoG is to me on par with the best parks on earth. Genuinely the best park experience I've had in years- and it casts a huge pile o' shame on the other SF parks in the system that SFoG is so good... and others are so bad!



Can't speak for those in the chain I haven't visited (West Coast, Texas), but this is the overall impression I leave with after every visit. SFStl. comes close, and SFGAm was like this in the past. SFoG is top-notch.

This is exciting news, but do the tracks still get the crap beaten out of them with the topper track or does it solve that issue?

We have not "officially" made an announcement regarding this, but SFOG is bringing iLuminate to the park for an all-new show featuring the amazing light-up costume technology. The show will run from May 26-August 12 at the park inside the Crystal Pistol Music Hall. We will release some more details as we get a bit closer to the summer season.

Very much agree!

And about Mexico...well, at some point, we'll get enough of us together, get the Kidnapping Insurance, armed escorts, and go for it! (Only half kidding)


If you guys do a Mexico trip the same way you've done all your other trips (nice hotels, coach bus, good restaurants), it'll be safe. One of the Mexico City parks has armed security with shotguns outside their gates. If you do the water challenge there, you might want to use bottled water. ;)

I'm excited to see how the cyclone is with the topper track. I only got a chance to ride it once and don't remember much from that. Overall the park has a really good selection of rides and really doesn't really have any bad coasters. Even their family coaster is unique. Can't wait to ride this (and DareDevil Dive) in the future.

Water challenge on the Ninja could get really interesting, although I think a water challenge on Batman could be just as interesting :)

Here is a quick update to the Georgia Cyclone re-tracking with Topper Track.

From what I understand, the new topper track will be used to rebuild the first drop, the first turn-around and the second drop.

Here are some pictures of the current work (as of 1/25):

Thanks for the pics! This is a major project and really has the potential to return the Cyclone to its full potential. Can't wait to ride it.

^^ I can't wait to ride it after the repairs. I hope it returns to it's past glory. It's always one of my first rides of the day.

Thanks for the update, Brad! I don't remember reading this, but will this be a phased project? As in, will similar re-tracking be done on other portions of the track next year? Hopefully, the topper track brings Georgia Cyclone back to its former glory!
