SFGAmWorld Park meetup?

Going to a park and want to meet up with other members of this site. Feel free to post where you will be going!

The actual meetup wasn't really anything spectacular. Like I said, I only met up with RaceBoarder. The crowds certainly were less crowded than other days. Really, after 6, it was basically dead. Most rides(including Bull) only had either a station or a stair wait, and Goliath didn't even use any switchbacks(it went into both the outdoor and covered queue blocks, obviously). And the ERT was marathon central. Also, David from the teasers was handing out the ERT wristbands. I(being 'observant') knew it was him, and had a small chat. He told me he isn't in the 'Teaser Filming' spot anymore, and is in the Sponsorships Team. So I won't expect teasers anymore. :cry:

The first I would've went this year when it wasn't crowded? :cry: :cry:

The no teasers thing sucks too.

Yeah. I've seen a lot more of him over the 2015 season. (Maybe it's because I recognize him more. :? ) Anyways, he's usually giving the ERT Wristbands and takes pictures during the event, as well as riding with the rest of us.

It seems like the other side always wins on American Eagle :?
Also, I've ridden Goliath 23 times in one day. HBU? :roll: :P

Does anyone want to meet-up on closing day? I know I'll be there, and I'll be finishing the season the same way I started it: Riding Viper

Park closes at 6:00 on closing day (November 6th) so does anyone want to meet-up for a "SFGAmWorld Last 2016 Ride"?

I'm going 9/24 with my 6 YO daugther! We will be there at opening and stay at least till 8pm (depending on how she handles FF). However I don't have internet access on my phone so I would need to know the meeting place before hand.

Would be great to put faces with usernames :) Then we can all head over to Superman and TDK :)

I'm now planning on getting there 11am. Does anyone want to meet up then or at 1PM at the Hometown Plaza Gazebo at 1pm? I'll be alone, wearing a plain blue raincoat. I'm 45 yo.

Yay

I started off the season on opening day with Viper, so appropriately, that's how I plan to end it. I'm going to try and get back row on the last train of the season if anyone wants to meet-up

^ RC, we'll see if we can meet up with you at end of day. I definitely want to hit Whizzer after dark as well.

If not Viper, maybe we can get the last dispatch of Columbia Carousel. That'd be an awesome way to end the season

I say Goliath or Viper, maybe JL.

Columbia would certainly be iconic, but it'd be one boring way to end a season.

Only if they timed it perfectly with the Carousel Song (I'm not sure if they do or not, as I've never attended closing day to my knowledge), otherwise no.

Goliath will be over in 40 seconds, plus the line still gets long all the way until the end of the night.

I say we do Viper and maybe hold a Trivia contest like for Iron Wolf's last day

The line for Goliath actually does shorten significantly by the end of the night, so we could get in a few 'last rides'

During Labor Day weekend I used the SRL for Goliath (7:00 P.M.) got off at 8, and the queue was still full. (Park closed at 9)

Doesn't sound "empty" to me :P

I mean the last 15 minutes of the park being open. The line is usually just the line directly in front of the station.

Also, you went on Labor Day Weekend, which is much more crowded than any normal day.
