Yeah well, we might as well give up that fantasy. SFMM is slapping inversions on whatever they build. They even added a "virtual" loop to their version of Justice League. :lol:

I will provide you with maximum pleasure.

Two other questions on the survey asked, "Which ride has the fastest inversions?" and "Which ride has the tallest inversions?"

Yeah. This thing is definitely going to have inversions. :lol:

I just got the same survey for SFGAdv with the same questions, except for the "new land" part. I think you guys might be taking the questions a little too literally, lol...

I just got the survey, and the last 8 pages or so asked me how much things would/should cost, but each question was written: “How much do you think you would have to pay for a a?” And “How much do you think you should have to pay for a waterpark a waterpark?” I just gave each answer 0.01, as it was the lowest acceptable amount, and clicked the “needs better proofreading” button when the survey asked how the survey could’ve been better LOL...

She turned me into a donkey! I got better...

So I was just getting some ice cream near the front of the park and noticed an abc7 news van parked outside the main gate. They're getting a camera set up now. It's pretty smokey here too. Does anyone know if there's a fire nearby or why the news is here?

What's with the donkeys anyway?

I received my survey today at it was questions about a new Membership Rewards Program. No questions about rides or such. I did notice they ask what park is your home park. Mine is SFMM and they are asking about giraffe feeding and stuff. Last time I checked SFMM didn't have giraffes. They need to make the surveys appropriate to what you select as your home park. Oh, and they really need to proofread before sending these surveys out....

It was just a live weather telecast with Leo Stallworth a general assignment reporter for ABC7 Eyewitness News. Talked with Sue of SFMM and just reminded people to stay hydrated and then featured tape of a couple gals at a strip mall talking of the weather, and showed the city of SCV breaking ground for a new fire-station. Pretty cool SFMM allowed them inside the park to do this forecast.

This has got to be some kind of launched racing coaster right? I can't imagine what else it would be based on those teasers. Maybe the two is taking about two separate rides, which would point to a launched coaster and maybe some kind of flat? Either way, we'll know what it is in 20 days!
