Just came from the park 30 mins ago the 7-11 event was awesome. The ERT they had was Green Latern, Batman: The Ride and Goliath. We got a ride on Green Latern (Man that little monster packs a punch!), and 2 rides on Goliath. Before the ERT we got on Lex Luthor: Drop of Doom and it was great. The fall is awesome and the view is amazing. It's very re-rideable and I can't wait to get on it again. Me and the wifey enjoyed our night there, especially since each ticket was only $7.11 ;)

Im going to call it and go with that as my guess. Not the same ride but launched with the world record loop, similar to Superman.

If you're correct and SFMM gets the same exact design but bigger, can you imagine the AIRTIME on that thing?? :omg: S:UF is only 150' and 62 mph and the ejector is insane...
SFMM's version?? :airtime:


Im thinking the loop would be in LJ's spot with a launch through the tunnel and a bunch of twisty airtime hills in various places.

I usually don't ride it that often so I don't know if that's normal, but I've always found the right side to be the side open. It was nice finally getting to ride the other track. I sat in the back row and something completely unexpected happened on the first drop: There was literally an INSANE amount of airtime that made me literally fly into the lab bar that I had given myself a little but nice amount of room with. It was painful since I wasn't ready for it, but it was also amazing in a way, and would have been fantastic if I was prepared for it.
Anyone else experienced crazy airtime on the first drop on either track?


Left side has been used since January. And yes! I always ride in the back now and that first drop always scares the crap out of me now! That is an amazing pop of airtime! I am liking Colossus more and more ever since the beginning of this year! Haven't been down to the park due to a vacation. Probably heading down next Tuesday.

Can I park my donkey here?

I also rode Colossus on Tuesday, left side, in the very back seat, and to me it rode the way it has for the past year or so. Nice air on the first drop, nice air on the drop after both turnarounds, and a little pop after the MCBR. IMO you should always sit in the back seat on Colossus. That first drop is basically designed to pull you out of the seat as the front of the train goez down the drop. I would also say my ride on Colossus was about as smooth as Apocalypse. Very fun, so much in fact I rode it twice because there was no wait.

So someone posted on FB that parking at SFMM is going up to $17. :roll:

Guess that new ride is costing more than expected. :lol:

^Great Adventure was $22 when I was there last month. But yeah its funny how instead of rasing the gate prices they raise parking.

More and more I find myself wanting to bring my bike, park on the street somewhere and ride to the entrance.

I'm glad I have my Extreme pass if this is true. Actually I'm glad I have it anyway, you make the difference back in parking alone in four trips... Assuming you go there often enough.
Has anyone tried the fried peanut butter and jelly at What The Fried? I might have to try it next time. Actually, has anyone tried anything from there besides the Dole Whip?

I've gone to SFMM/SFHH at least 15 times this year so far. Parking was WELL worth it.

I got parking and SFHH for free last year with my pass. Well worth it for the 30+ times I've gone this year.
