I have no proof of this, but I bet at least one person who visited the park during Fright Fest 2011 thought Iron Wolf being taken down was X-Flight being built

I'm currently waiting for back row of V2 and just heard this...

"If you ride in the back, it feels like a roller coaster."

I'm sure I've heard people say that the Eagle is the oldest ride there! (this might be a duplicate posting)

Been to may theme parks, in many countries. However, SFGAm is my home park and I love it!

I saw a group of teens, a bunch of white girls and two boys, hear some of the crappy pop music play and they were like, "omg I wanna twerk yeah!" and they tried to twerk and recorded it and swore they were going to post it on Snapchat. I'm just like SMDH.

I remember last year in line for Goliath they showed a promo video for Thunder Rapids and it said Coming 2017 to SFFT and everybody in line went crazy and was so excited and talking about coming to SFGAm this year to ride it. They were clapping and yelling and everything.

^ Oh wow! Right when the coaster was going up the uphill part? I was watching this at work so I don't have no sound but did they say what caused the ride to be stuck? I feel like this is a redundant question XD :lol:

I was at Dollywood not too long ago, can I just ask why the GP doesn't like when the ride ops say "FIRE N THE HOLEEEEEE" for Blazing Fury? They seemed annoyed while my family and I like to scream it back.

^ Same. Dollywood is my second favorite park.

I heard a group of teenagers at Dollywood 2 weeks ago and one of them was saying "Do you want to get on Lightning Rod" and one of the others were like "No it's a wooden roller coaster you know it's rough." I was like bruh.

I heard this the other day (during daylight) while at the station for Whizzer:
Kid (pointing at Demon): Hey is that part of the Whizzer? It looks like it's the same ride and track.

I almost started cracking up! How does a black Arrow track and a GREEN Schwarzkopf track look like the same ride??

I had a presentation in COM 110 last week. My teacher asked us what we were afraid of and half the room said roller coasters (specifically a few said Dare Devil Dive). We had a speech that day where we brought items and explained what they meant to us. So sure enough, I was ready to present with a few amusement park maps in my bag. We were presenting alphabetically. Sure enough, the kid right before I present goes out there and pulls out a picture of an on ride photo on Green Lantern at SFGAd. He says "I love to travel. This is a picture of me on Kingda Ka, the world's fastest roller coaster". I wanted to say something so bad, but i did not want to be "that kid". When I go to present, I said "Hi my name is Dan and I am a coaster enthusiast. I have ridden the fastest coaster in the world too, Kingda Ka, just like him" and I pointed at the kid. I dont know why I said that but I did, hahaha!
