I know I'm in the minority, but I really enjoyed the ride when it was at SFGAm (and B&M Stand-Ups in general). I'm visiting SFA later this month, and was looking forward to getting a spin or two on it, so this is a bit of a bummer.

This is so I can post online and impress other people who are very good at procuring unfamiliar children in order to go on rides designed for children, and thus have a higher arbitrary number than me."

I really doubt this means they're closing Apocalypse next week. That tiny sign is hardly a closing announcement...

it was the ONE open coaster I did not ride.

and I did Roar and Mind Eraser for goodness sakes!

yep, refused to get on it, as I had ridden Georgia Scorcher at SFoG a few days prior, and loved that, so why leave a bad taste from this POS.

so if it goes floorless? more power to em.

I was just happy that Rodeo Breakdance ran in both directions for us when we were there. Still not super forceful (even the sizzler ran a better program), but at least the operator went both directions for us (the prior cycle only went one way).

I can't be the only one expecting this to just be another Fright Fest maze teaser? We already know SF is announcing new stuff on 8/30, so I doubt SFA will break form and announce their 2019 early. Plus, last year Great Adventure's Fright Fest announcements happened on the day of the eclipse so it isn't unprecedented for it to happen earlier.

Nah, not FF. Can't be. They are not 'announcing' on the 16th, just telling us what's closing. I'm guessing of course.

According to most rumors and unconfirmed sources, Apocalypse will close on the 16th and receive floorless trains. The current trains are going to B&M for historic purposes.
