We didn't ride Catwoman - I don't really do fast, spinning rides very well anymore. My daughter wanted to go on it but my wife wasn't feeling it. I am sure they will ride it next time out. It looks like fun to me but I would be out of commission if I rode it.

I did read your SFFT report and it was great, as always. We will be down in San Antonio in April to do Fiesta for the first time and ZDT.

The pad for the old Huss Troika is being torn up, presumably to build a restaurant.

I sure hope that Troika find its way into another Six Flags park. They're excellent rides.

SFSTL has the perfect spot for it now that Highland Fling is gone ...

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Great TR!!

Coastercowboy wrote:Joker - OK, so I had not ridden this ride yet, nor any of its clones. Last year it was either down or too long of a wait. Today it was a walk-on, so we figured why not.....well...2 days after the fact, I still don't know if I sort of liked it or hated it...It was more intense than I thought it would be. We flipped 4 or 5 times and it felt like I was going to fall out of the car. On the forward flips it felt like someone kicked me in the head, not sure why. I recognize it for being unique and I sort of enjoyed most of it except when the car flipped forward....Now, we have ridden X at SFMM back when it opened the first year...the wife and I loved that. We didn't love this. I came off this with a headache, which almost never happens, even when I ride SLC's or old Arrow loopers. :?r TBT at a later date :wtf:


The first time I rode a Joker clone it was the one at Great Adventure. I rode it once, and got off the damn thing hating how much it beat me around. I swore I would never ride another one of these god forsaken rides!!! However, after getting some feedback here on TPR, I decided to give the one at SFOT a go last weekend. . . Everyone said: "Make your restraint as tight as humanly possible, and keep your head pressed back against the headrest as much as you can."

So, this is what I did and... HOLY CRAP!!! I actually ended up LOVING the ride!!! Once I got rid of the "being beaten" effect, and was able to actually enjoy the ride, I came off LOVING it. I even found myself wanting to ride it again and again!!! Those who asked me what it was like I explained it to them as: "Getting to know what it feels like to be a random article of clothing in the a dryer." :lol: Seems like a pretty accurate description!!

Next time you get a chance to ride one of these try the "tight harness, and head pressed back the entire ride" trick, and I bet you will come off with a new love for the ride! :)
Bigger is not always better. (And anyone who has ridden Wonder Woman knows this is true!)

Yes please! That would actually be a great addition.

My understanding is the Troika is in storage at the moment. But I'm not so sure SFOT is willing to part with one of it's best family rides. They may simply re-theme it and relocate it to another section of the park.
