Spaghetti's (Really Late) Trip Report from SFDK!

trip report

Alrighty, I have the time on my hands (finally!) to get this trip report over with. We started by driving from Portland To Medford, Ate at the In n' Out Burger there, and drove to Vallejo the next day. The drive itself on the first day was very cool, as the Oregon to California border is VERY visible. The trees virtually stopped on the state line! The next day, our drive to Vallejo was also very cool, as we were driving through the plains, and it felt as if we were in the Windows background. It got boring after a while so I decided to think of it as if we were in a zombie apocalypse and we were driving to see if anybody was alive, as the highways were empty. Eventually, we got to our hotel and got a sweet view of the park. (Courtyard Vallejo for all you who want to go)

Anyway, onto the park. We walked over at opening hours and got in. Surprisingly, lots of people were there but the park still felt empty. We grabbed a map and chose our first ride: The Joker. I've never ridden an RMC before, so I was very nervous. We got to the line and waited 15 minutes before it was cleared to go, and there was still a huge line. The wait was worth it, because HOLY HECK that's one good coaster. Great Airtime, Sick Inversions, it has everything. After that, we walked over to Superman and got a ride. As my first launch coaster, I have to say, It was really good. Then, was what I came to this park for: Medusa. This is what I was looking for the whole day, and boy did I get my money's worth. Medusa is one of those coasters that will never get old to me, I love it. After that, my family felt hungry, so we ate lunch. We found a map which we thought was current, and we picked my favorite restaurant, Panda Express... Or so we thought. Turns out that they GOT RID of it and replaced it with some nappy ass fake restuarant named "Chop Six." After lunch, our family got back to work and chose to ride Sky Screamer. Personally, I have an irrational fear of those, so I stayed off and walked over to Medusa to snatch two rides. FRONT SEAT ON BOTH BOYYY. Our family was starting to feel tired (Besides me) So they decided to sit out the rest of the day. After that, my brother and I walked back to SuperMan and got front seat again. It was getting a bit late (And cold) so I decided to end my day on a high note and do four more rides of Medusa. After that we walked back to our hotel and spent the rest of the day in the pool.

 

At the end of the day, My coaster counter:

 

Medusa: 7X

 

Superman: 2X

 

Joker: 1X

 

V2: Closed

 

Kong: HECK NO

 

Boomerang: Closed.

 

Front Row: 5X

 

WTF moments of the road trip:

 

-Went to a "Black Bear Diner" in SF. They messed up my order 3 times and still couldn't get it right.

 

-At a rest stop in the middle of nowhere, there was a sign still up from 2007 about the west nile virus

 

-Half the rides were closed lmao

 

-Kong got stuck on the lift three times from what I could see.

 

-Joker was crowded the whole day so only one ride for me... :(

 

-Medusa was a walk on and had no lines for even the front row

 

-Found a hair in my food at AppleBee's in Vallejo

 

Edit: Haha, I got bamboozled by the admins.

V2 is pretty much always closed. I've been to SFDK maybe 5 or 6 times and I've only gotten 2 rides on it.
