When the Boss first opened and for several years after, it was one of the roughest coasters I had ever been on, I wouldn't dare sit in the back or the front.. they re-tracked, and added supports where needed over and over again for several years. finally the work paid off and the Boss is a truly awesome coaster, and for the past few years the ride has been consistently good.
As far as the Eagle goes, yes last year it ran awesome, and I'm not just saying that because I love the coaster. 2010 the Eagle rode extremely rough every time I rode it. last season it was riding great. The Screamin' Eagle has always screeched around the turns, I have been riding it since it's opening weekend back in 76, and the screaming around the turns has always been there. back in the day before the Boss existed, you could hear it coming around the 180 turn and dropping down the hill...

I think you guys could use 4 more major attractions: 1- Junior/Family Coaster 2- Major Looping Coaster 3- Waterslide Coaster 4- Top Spin/ Frisbee OR Some other major flat ride attraction
well we already have a family coaster, "Pandemonium" well I actually like to call American Thunder a family coaster as well, its great on thrills but geared towards the family element which is fine.
yes we need a major looping coaster in a bad way, our last one was Batman. and the Ninja is absolutely horrible and needs to go...
I disagree about the water slide coaster, but that's just because i really don't use the water park but hey that's just me.
a top spin/ frisbee would be a great addition, and yest even a new major flat.
and to the person that commented on the Sky Screamer, yes it IS a nice addition to the park, and it's offers a great view of the park, personally I don't find it awesome, I rode it a couple of times last year and its already run it's course with me. but the general population is eating it up and keeping the lines full which is a good thing..
About Family Coaster, I was talking of a small coaster to fill the gap of ACME Gravity Powered Roller Ride/ Rockin' Roller. You know something for the 24"-36" that are too timid for Pandemonium.
Well the rumor on Screamscape is that Bizarro at SFGAdv is rumored to be removed for a new coaster and relocated to another park. So I was thinking St. Louis would be the best candidate. That wouldn't be too bad right?
Mayyyybe, but I would be very very surprised. They are EXTREMELY space-limited from what I understand. And also, I don't think their attendance would really merit an addition of that size. I thinks that's why they never got they go-ahead to install the SLC they were storing for a few years, which eventually got shipped to La Ronde (which makes me think, La Ronde could be another possibility.) I personally think St. Louis would be the best fit.
I agree that this park needs a standout steel coaster. I think they could go the SFMM approach and put it out in the giant neigh unused parking lot they have. I would love to see something like that done even though it wouldn't be aesthetically pleasing.
