    It was pouring rain here a couple weeks ago when our Joker got stuck on the lift with riders & someone called the police... people were taking photos of it & freaking out:mad: so stupid.

    Did it even flip? This is very upsetting.

    And congrats AJ

    If the park wants this to be a hit they have to adjust the flip count. Even my young cousin was underwhelmed by the short "rocking" coaster.

    The cars with the cameras were not flipping because of the weight, I rode once or twice on the green side camera car and didnt flip.

    But yeah they should adjust the flips and make the ride more intense. People want to flip not rock. Everyone that I rode with came back saying "that was it?" or something like that.

    My thoughts...

    well, it doesnt do much for flipping.... yet
    Strangely it left me with a feeling that i just rode a flat because it was so short it didn't feel like a coaster ride
    I really wish you didnt have to walk all the way around tea cups to enter the que, but it makes sense that they did it that way

    but on a positive note: it does look great in that spot. The restraints are so comfortable. I hope they add similar ones to Batman

    Does your Joker have a single rider line? That's what helps me here when the line is horrible. We've ridden it so much that we don't feel like waiting an hour+ for it when we could wait 2-10min lol

    SFNE does and I used the single rider line at SFGA last month when we got stranded in Chicago an extra day. What they also have in common is that you don't flip much at either park so the ride sucks. LOL So we put it on our list and moved on to better coasters.

    I tried it without the fins on top. I rode it a total of 7 times. I had one ride that was really intense, but averaged 2 flips. On my last ride, I got 4 flips on the green side!

    What good is it to have one side that flips more than the other if they don't let you choose your side?

    If I ask them to go to one side, they let me go to that side.

    Usually if you ask, they do let you choose. But one rude ass operator told me "we'll see" I was like yeah I guess we will so next time I went up she said wait here & I walked past to green side. Sorry not sorry.

    Anyways - yeah sadly as you have noticed, ours doesn't flip very much. Sometimes I get flipped over but not full 360s. The most I've ever flipped was 3 times :/ Don't get me wrong though, I really love the placement of it at SFGAm, a lot & the ride is really fun. Overall I do think it's a great addition. I just really think both of our parks are growing & putting in low capacity rides, isnst helping.
