Boy, KidTums has grown a lot! It seems like only yesterday she was only a baby on the Japan trip.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

Wow - that would have been cool to run into you guys at the park! I'm moving from AZ to FL but went out to SFMM for the first time in 12 years last saturday... so much has changed.
I've been a fan of the site for a while, but finally signed up for the boards.

btw, even though some things were closed - having a 5 min wait for Goliath, Tatsu and X2 was totally worth the rain. As I got 5-6 rides on each, and when we rode Terminator we got the very back seat, and didn't even have to stand up for 4 cycles!

I'm also a photographer and wanted to get a lot of fun shots at the park, but the rain hindered that :(
but, it cleared up during twilight and I was able to get some really fun shots! let me know what you think!

WOW! The Tatsu and Viper photos at sunset look like paintings.

I always try to go to amusement parks on a day or day after it rains just so i can get those great shots with a crystal clear sky and have the tracks freshly washed off.

^ Nice pictures. :)

All those rides on a Saturday? I was there on Sunday and couldn't get near X2, and barely rode Terminator once. Tatsu was slow, as was Goliath. Strange because normally Saturdays are busier.

I just checked the park map here, and it's the map from 2009. Hopefully the new one will be up sometime soon.

I use a canon xsi

and yeah we rode X2 twice right away, maybe a one train wait each time - then again later in the day 2 train wait
walked onto viper 3 different times
3 rides on tatsu, walked on, then one train for back and 2 train wait for back
5 rides on terminator, most of them we didn't even have to get out of the seat (plus it was wet and rainy and running amazing)
only 1 ride on gold rusher, riddler
3 times on revolution, never had to get up
walked on to the middle, front, and back of scream 3 times in a row - same with goliath, with a couple of rides later in the day
didn't make it to colossus before it broke down tho :(

Is it worth the money on a monday during these times? I have all of the credits except Term, Tatsu, the new kiddie, and one side of Superman and Colossus.


You won't need a Q-bot on a May weekday. Almost every time I have been to the park on a May weekday I have had walk ons on almost every coaster. The only exception is the week of Memorial Day but that week is actually in June this year so it doesn't matter. Assuming you are not going on Memorial Day, you shouldn't need it.
