I can confirm that the hours have been extended at SFGAm. But one note I found interesting was that different locations had different hours at SFStL.

When are they gonna update the Dining Pass guide? It doesn't include Hurricane Harbor or Strutters but lists Aunt Martha's


Also hoping Fried Pickles are added this year.

I don't play games at the park, but it's nice to see Demon with some new queue paint.

TOTALLY agree. Looks really cool! I sure wish they'd have the waterfall on! Bonus points if the water is red. :D

Encouraging to see minor detail work being done for Demon. I hope it's not just work being done ahead of a VR "upgrade", or (much worse) vest restraints like SFOG's Ninja.

I don't think vest upgrades would hurt. It would gain riders, as many people don't ride simply because of the restraints. The queue reminds me of Kings Island, and more specifically Bat/Vortex.

Exactly! I remember back in 2000 when people were posting on various theme park forums, that Whizzer and Demon only had a few years left in them, they were falling apart, spare parts were too expensive, blah blah blah..... here we are in 2016 and both coasters are still standing and operating, lol. If they were really that costly and expensive, we would have seen them both removed during the massive financial troubles Six Flags was having right before it went bankrupt. The fact that both coasters survived through that ordeal, tells me, they aren't going anywhere anytime soon!

Vests would effectively eliminate the abrupt ejection halfway down the first drop that feels like the world is yanked out from under you (towards the end of the train, but especially in the last row). It's probably the single most surprising moment on a coaster at this park.

Well considering there's 2 giant balloons, I doubt they'll use it. In true Six Flags fashion, they'd leave it be.
