Wow! That's really saying something if you think they are efficient at SFA. I for one, don't think that at all, but then again, no other park to compare it to in the chain for me. They were moving like snails for as slow a day as it was there.

I never said they were efficient. I said SFoG, Caro, and KI were worse.

Yes, it makes you have a greater appreciation for a park that takes care in it's details and efficiency. That and ride upkeep seems to be a major component too that is lacking at SFA. That place needs a LOT of paint. Joker's Jinx is seriously rusting away. Strange they wouldn't attempt to keep things looking nice.

And considering that this park is heavily neglected when it comes to adding major attractions on a regular basis, they could at least make it look more presentable.

How was the condition of Superman's paint looking? It's suppose to be fire engine red. The last time I went it was pink.

Faded rally badly. It's definitely a pinkish hue and the blue really fading as well. Overall just feels dirty. But Jinx was worst. Huge rusted sections missing paint all together on the rails. It rides fine, but just aweful looking.
