In August of 2012, the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk unveiled plans for a new $5.5 million ride during a presentation for employees and media at the Boardwalk. A new spinning roller coaster, named Undertow, will join the Boardwalk’s thrilling lineup of rides. Manufactured by the German coaster company Maurer Sohne, Undertow will be the only spinning coaster in Northern California. Continue reading “Tomorrow Tuesday–Undertow at Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk”
We were invited to the Ghoulish Gathering VIP event at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, but due to travel distance and time, we weren’t able to make it. An associate that lives practically next to the park was able to make it, and took a few pictures for us. The park was only open ’til 10, so most pictures were taken during the day. And since everyone at the event went on mazes at night, we have very few pictures of the park at night. (You’re not allowed to take pictures at the mazes) So here they are!
All rides were operating Friday night, looks pretty cool if you ask us!
Of course our favorite ride, Superman Ultimate Flight, deserved their attention!
Six Flags Discovery Kingdom is expanding it’s Fright Fest more and more every year, and they have also placed a huge spider on their woodie!

We went to Fright Fest at Six Flags Magic Mountain again yesterday. We decided to go on all mazes for the last time, therefore we didn’t have much time to look at all the things that went on. Also, we were with some friends, so mazes were our top priority. Below you’ll see a wooping 3 pictures! Which will show what we noticed real quick while we were at the park.
Around 6:30 PM, when they decided to open Total Darkness early, we saw this on our way from DC Universe to TD. Maintenance was climbing the superman track. Later, around 7 PM. Superman opened again.
Another thing we noticed real quick, was the bus-stop waiting line. It is now a permanent line.
Something we didn’t see the last 2 Fridays we were here! Nice greetings when approaching Colossus County Fair!
It was time for CGA to have its very own quiz. This quiz is on some general park facts, rather than roller-coasters alone. Have fun!

Hurricane was Santa Cruz’s 2nd steel coaster built, and although somewhat compact at only 58 ft tall and 1430 ft long, it packed a powerful punch. The ride threw riders at a monstrous 4.5 G’s, the same amount of force that the much larger coaster, Medusa at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom gives to riders. The ride is made by SDC and shares a name with the model it is. Continue reading “Throwback Thursday–Hurricane @ Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk”
