Oh. Yeah, that would explain it.

Flashback was not that great. Honestly, I've ridden it twice and will never ride it again if it is open and has any sort of line. It is pointless. The argument about it being historical is stupid because if Magic Mountain is paved, it will be 2x as sad to see Revvy go (first successful looper vs. only space diver). I doubt very many people would complain if all the SLCs were torn down, and Flashback hurts just as much as any of those I've been on. It looks like fun, but it is violent and mildly painful. It really is not worth it to the park at all to reopen it. Would it be sad to see it torn down? No. It isn't operating, so what's the difference...
So the Chinese Acrobats have let SFMM and are off to...Texas, not SF related. Now in it's place is "Kidz Bop". SFMM is the last stop for the Kidz Bop tour. And frankly, they end on a rather sour note...literaly.
Bye to this
Hello to this
Complete w/ merchandise
before the show, the kids go around and ask the audience which songs they want to hear, even as far as "having them vote". They do the same songs each time.
In other news, the park is doing a great job giving park guest an early taste of Fright Fest.
This Hearst can be found at the front of the park by Valencia Falls.
Hearst in need of some TLC.
PIMP MY HEARST...hey, you never know!
They have a grave digger passing out flyers, promoting fright fest 2006.
The Colosus spider will be spinning its web soon, so be sure to watch for the Fright Fest 2006 thread for theming, and mazes pictures soon.
Very cool looking display, but night does it justice. Very cool lighting!
