The world needs more giant frisbee rides. Crazanity looks great!

I love donkeys more than me.

I didn't think i'd like CRAZANITY because spinning swing rides upset the tum tum. But it was GREAT! Can't wait to take the Family so they can ride it.

Also waiting to see the big reveal for that area. My brother is working back there tearing it up and has to keep a tight lip on the going on's!

The spinning isn't bad. I'm not a fan of spinning rides either, and this one's much more of a rotation — especially once it get moving fast. It also changes rotation direction midway through. For me, what makes it more intense than the other giant frisbees I've ridden (Cedar Point / Kings Island) is that the positive / negative forces seem higher. The downswing is quite forceful, and the angle of seats, combined with the angle of the arc, makes it feel more like some weird variant of ejector-hangtime. On other giant frisbees, it's more like a graceful swoop followed by a ton of floater air. This one feels much more aggressive to me.

That's awesome! How are rides like Twisted Colossus, X2, etc. running?

We are just covering the media event at the moment as that is the focus of today.

And with an absolutely CraZy amount of confetti, CraZanity is officially OPEN! According to Evan, the ride is fantastic! We highly recommend coming to the park and taking a spin on it!

All good! Nice photos!

Hey guys! As Robb said, I was at the media event today! It was super fun and the ride is GREAT! I've never been a big flat rides guy but this might change my mind about that position. It had good positive g's to go along with some nice floater airtime. It's also insanely rerideable because it doesn't spin a whole bunch. And then they fed us!

Overall, it's a great addition to a park that'd been sorely missing a flat ride like this. It's now high up on my list of top rides at the park and I can't recommend it enough. On top of that, they did a great job revitalizing the whole area from Johnny Rockets to the bathrooms over near Scrambler. Everything looks refreshed and nearly brand new after years of feeling a little unloved. Great job SFMM!

Yes, that IS a funnel cake burger. Never in my life had I thought, "Gee, this funnel cake needs more meat," but it actually tasted pretty good.

One last look at all the fancy new things. They did a great job with this area and I'm super excited to see what they're gonna do to Cyclone Bay!
