That is why I don't like Vekoma and unfortunately at my home park they have one of the worst Vekoma Corkscrew coasters in the world.[/img]

Great TR! It makes me really want to go back! Speaking of which, how are your experiences there? (as far as dealing with punks, thugs and crap)

Edit, (^) and that's why I don't like ear piercings!

This is why I adopted a Goldbot-mandatory policy for any SF park I care to ride anything of any worth more than once.

Sorry you had a "standard for me" SFNE day.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

This park used to be great, but it's like they specifically picked the nicest parts of it, and by only removing a few rides, managed to turn it from a Beautiful park with a beautiful ferris wheel, a spider, the log flume, and chaos ride into an ugly crappy park. And then, they put in Wiggles world in place of Tiny Timber Town, which turned one of the nicest (non commercialized) kiddy areas in the chain into the ugliest thing I have ever seen.

Depends on the parks. At Disneyland they just pull up or tap on the lap bar. Same with Universal Studios. Well, only for R.O.T.M., because on J.P. they just tell you to pull down on the lap bar and push up. Now in my experience with the S.F.'s I've been too, I think it's required for them to push down and try to get some internal bleeding going. :devil: Actually, I think I saw a memo on the Training Guide telling employees to do so.

Thanks for the photos! Having been going to this park since I was 6, I have to say that Six Flags could do so much more with the layout. Right now, there are a lot of sparse/empty areas of the park. Your comment about Batman and Crime Wave not being over where Superman is gets me as well. I keep coming up with this idea to create more themed areas at SFNE because it would make the park so much more interesting. Batman would "vanish" and just be "Knight Flight" and that area could be re-themed into Camelot, then the following year SF could bring back Batman and have a rocket coaster like Furius Baco depart from where Nightwing was (I'm still hoping they get rid of it) and travel through the woods...back there. I've always wondered why SFNE doesn't develop more...back there. Does anyone know?

Behind Nightwing/Superman is swampland (with an actual creek running through it) and then the Picnic Grove. Not much can be done there.

For reference, here is a satellite image. The band of trees running through is the swampy area. Superman's last curve into the brakes is often swampy, as well.
