SFMM FT VIP Tour/ Park Update 9/28/13

California Coaster Kings entered a contest to win an FT VIP engineering event, en we won!

Upon arrival we had to register at the US Army booth, and we then waited in line to be let in. Once we entered the park, we were gathered under the Full Throttle canopy and Tim Burkhart, VP of Six Flags Inc. Maintenance, told us all about the ride. He told us how FT worked, as well as what went into designing it, and how physics were applied to it. We then got to ride FT during a little ERT session, we got 5 rides in, before we were allowed to explore the rest of the park before the Saturday crowds would come in.

It also happened to be the day of the finale of Kidz Star with the famous Jennette Mc Curdy.

The bus that we showed in last week’s update has now been ‘painted’ to fit the Fright Fest area more.

Also, between Whistle Stop Park and Golden Bear Theater, more ‘apocalyptic’ objects have been placed!

The Fright Fest icon has returned! Our guess is that the Demon’s Door scare zone is not going to have place for it over at the fountain, and since Total Darkness is going to be located in the Magic Moments theater, we think it works out.

During the Full Throttle VIP event, we also got catered lunch, the lunch was held on the perfect roller-coaster-junkie spot, right under Goliath and Colossus. (Pavilion next to Road Runner Express)
