    Is it the dry climate in any way? I seriously don't know how big a role that plays, or how much it can be combated. But I've heard a lot of similar comments about Ghostrider (only rode it once myself). On the other hand, the Giant Dipper in Santa Cruz, with much higher humidity, it simply incredible after 80+ years. Of course, they must have to do something to fight the corrosive effect of salt in the air. Grizzly at CGA (formerly PGA, formerly MGA) was awful from the beginning, but it hasn't gotten any worse over time. Roar isn't all that old, yet, and Vallejo gets regular fog and is close to the Bay; it's doing fine. I guess if I was truly hardcore, I'd be in ACE and know this stuff.

    A bientot.

    Re: SFMM's 2009 Coaster!

    Yea i got to Santa Cruz BW, SFDK, and CGA several time a year. Giant Dipper is 1 of the funniest rides ever and looks better than ever and fun every ride. Roar is very fun got a little bumpy through the years but still really smooth at mostpart and really twisty. Grizzle shockenly wasnt bumpy at all last week i went. I noticed they took out the 2 cars in the back which probably made the ride lighter & Grizzle has the nicest scenery. Those are 3 woodies that are taken care of

    Great America is supposed to be getting a woodie in 2009 as well. I saw a pic on the net of the layout somewhere, but I am at a loss as to where I saw it

    There have been issues with the city and surrounding businesses concerning to the new coaster.

    Maybe they should just agree to rip down the Grizzly. That would make a whole bunch of people happy!
