SFGAm already has the one-up on both parks in terms of Drop Rides. I don't care how tall you make your Gyro-Drop, they don't even come close to Second Gen Towers.

Power Tower (both styles) is essentially a floorless outdoor elevator ride.[/quote]

You people are hilarious in being homers. This is why SF has it's strategy of cheap coasters and rides, you people will show up and tout them no matter what. GAm would not be even in the top 6 of CF parks.[/quote]

Wow you must hold cedar fair parks to really high standards if a park with 14 coaster "four of which are B&Ms" and over 35 flats wouldn't even make top five.[/quote]

GAm literally has 3 good coasters. Xflight good but extremely short, Goliath good but extremely short, Raging Bull good but far from one of the best B&M hypers. The park has 3 ubiquitous clones, Superman is an extremely weak flying coaster, Batman is a clone that was good, but the fact that they put it in like 9 parks makes it lose status when ranking parks. 4D is a weak gimmick clone that will be used to death and was never good to start with. AE is an old woody that is rough and long past its best days. Demon is a head banging 40+yr old Arrow looper, how bad that coaster is in modern time is obvious. Viper is a rough wood coaster that is just not good. Dark Knight is a just a wild mouse, blah,,,,The kiddie coasters are irrelevent

Just curious, what are your top 6 CF parks?

Just take a Seroquel before he makes you clutch your pearls.

Mods, can you just ban his IP already? This is like his 3rd account here.

The fact you think Viper isn't a rough wood coaster shows you are the classic SF customer, never been to other parks so don't know much. Btw, the fat you even have to ask what the top 6 CF parks are shows how clueless you are. Everyone knows what the top 6 CF parks are. That's like asking what are the top 2 SF parks? Everyone knows, well maybe expects some of the homers of SFGAM, b/c they probably think GAm is one of the top 2 parks.

Well technically, there is no 'Top 6 Cedar Fair parks". I just wanted to know what your personal rankings were since you said SFGAm would not make the top 6. I also don't think we would be one of the top 2 (Maybe 3 :P) so you're wrong there.

Just trying to have a rational discussion, no need to get frustrated

Just a quick question. When was the last time you rode Viper? Viper is running extremely well this season after the re-tracking on the first drop. After my night rides on it during the Glow Run, it is back up to my #5 spot of 27 ranked woodies.
If V2 closes on 8/27/2017, you heard it here first!

The notion Viper at #5...you clearly are GAm homer, that is an utterly laughable statement. It's a bad coaster, it would be the worst wood coaster at every CF park and at 1/2 of SF parks,

Stop feeding the troll and move along. Those types of comments are meant to make us angry/defensive. Just ignore it.

Also note how he replied to all the comments except mine.

Exactly, just pretend it is a Wisco Woody troll/bot post and ignore it until he is banned.

I know I'm just a "GAm homer" who can't possibly be as smart as someone who uses words like "notion" and "statement" but did you ever ride mean streak or hurler those are definitely worse than viper.

Agreed. Those final helixes are brutal. I actually felt really bad pain for the first time ever on the blue side last fall.

It really depends on how you ride. If you move with the train (think riding a horse) it isnt that bad. If you firmly sit in the seat and brace against it, its going to be real bad.

Don't see it mentioned, but the video display part of the park sign on the tollway is gone (can see right through it).
Not sure i they are upgrading, getting a newer one or just doing massmaintenance on it. I doubt the maintenance as tey would probably only take down one side at a time...noy both. The plexiglass (Six Flags/HH part is still in place).

I think they are putting new screens up because it was having glitches and it was distorted at points.

It's about time they do that. The screen (at least on the WI side) has been really bad for a while.

Hoping to finally do Drop of Doom tomorrow, couple questions

1. Does it open with the park?
2. Approximately what time do they run out of reservations? I know one person said they went at four and they were out, so I'm thinking I should hit it early on in the day
3. What's the average dispatch interval? I've never done a VR attraction before so I'm unaware

2. Get there when they open
3. Maybe every 4-5 minutes

With the water park opening soon, just wondering, how is it? More interested in pool/lounge area/kids area...things 2 to 4 year olds can do....and just enjoying summer weather. Are food lines horrible? Thinking about going to STL's over memorial day weekend, anybody know how it compares to SFGAm....should we warmer down there.....Thanks for any feedback-
