Do they not improve a parks lineup of rides or do enthusiasts just hate them because they’re loud, obnoxious, marketed as coasters, and not the big RMC/Intamin/Mack/B&M they wanted?
I find them fun, and usually will take a spin on them.
glad we just rode (for the 1st time) Cado Lake Barge, if it is going away.
Not near as intense, or fun, as Pipe Scream at Cedar Point, but it was a nice little distraction and feels like a mini Tilt a Whirl.
also to note, what a difference a day makes! we went back to SFoT yesterday morning for a few hours before heading back to Austin, and without it being BAFF day? Park was *way* less crowded, operations were spot on, and the employees were all happy and cheerful (although, it WAS morning, and the heat of the day hadn't kicked in yet).
in just under 3 hours, hit:
Battle for Metropolis
Skyscreamer (almost a walk on, after pulling 2hour waits Sat)
Batman (was gonna do Mr. Freeze, but it broke down while in line, and tho came back up less than 10 minutes later, they made everyone evacuate the line, so just went to Batman instead)
Rodeo (hadn't been open on Sat)
and Runaway Mountain (with only a 15 minute wait).
so yeah, we got a LOT done in under 3 hours.
it's weird in that several rides didn't open until close to noon tho. it's not AREAs, but rides: Harley opened around 11:40, JRS opened at Noon, Aquaman not till noon, and we noticed that Roaring Rapids also didn't open till noon.
