^ I'm assuming you are referring to the anti-rollback strips that the trains engage as they approach the top of the hill prior to entering the helix. The loud "clicking" noise is the anti-rollback dogs on the trains coming into contact with the strips on the track.

I think they are talking about the eagle sound effect in SWT but I'm not sure what the question is.

It's an eagle sound that is played from speakers at the top of Giant Drop.
Been to may theme parks, in many countries. However, SFGAm is my home park and I love it!

There's also a whirlwind sound as well! Those are both really cool!

We got it timed perfectly once. We got to the top and heard the wind howling as we were held there. The eagle cawed and a second later we dropped. Really added suspense to an already scary ride!

Great time at the park today. Raging Bull was walk-on around 12:50 PM. Except for the front and back rows, you could have marathoned this ride for most of the afternoon. Most rides were walk-on throughout the afternoon, with absolutely gorgeous weather. For me, this was the best day I've ever seen at the park. Amazing.

Does anyone know why X-Flight has been running one train this season? We always want to go on it when we go, but I'm not waiting any longer than past the station building.

I hope they restored the regular coaches while they were at it. They need some love, especially since they will be bart of Maxx Force.
