After work, I convinced my girlfriend it was a necessaty to take a trip back up to SFGAm (after all, there were thunderstorms in the forcast). We got there around 630pm & saw hordes of people streaming from the park to the busses to the south. We skipped RB & all the others on the way to Eagle again due to lines and my unwanting to wait anymore.
Eagle was a walkon and rode a couple laps. The ride-ops there were great letting anybody stay on & even finding rows for people. After the 2 laps, we walked over to V2 but it was down so we continued onto Batman. At this point, the sky changed and it started to sprinkle a bit. From here on out, each ride we heard the "..we might close this ride due to weather message.." Batman was a walk-on and we got 1 lap in. The crew here was a tad bit slow & making every one go around the line again. After the bat, we noticed V2 was up & strode over there as the rain picked up a bit. Waited 2 trains for the front (mainly cuz my girlie has never been on the front) and got her pissed at me cuz the rain (she HATES front-row, needle-rain rides). After V2, we walked to the exit and couldnt pass up a ride on S:UF. S:UF being the main reason for this TR.. the ride opps were horrible. They were stacking every single train. I didnt care too much as we were on in 1 train, but it was just dissapointing after the great job they were doing at the coasterbuzz event. After getting off, we heard the horrible announcement "This ride has temp. ceased opperation due to the weather." This was also when the enormous storm rolled in and we rolled out.
All in all, it was a decent day for my riding.. I can't re-ride too much as my girlfriend hasnt caught the feaver as I have yet. 3 eagle, 1 demon, 1 batman, 1 v2 & 1 S:UF

Then, with the sky starting to get REAL dark, we decided to meander over to Superman. We looked at the sky, and then looked at the line, and looked at the sky again, and decided to go for it. We walked in, and didn't stop walking until half way up the stairs for the front row. NO LINE to speak of. We still waited for about 10-15 minutes for the front row. Second time we'd been on that one, but first time for front (couldn't beat the line). Smooth and intense (especially in the rain). Right after we got off the ride, we saw a few bolts of lightning in the area, and a few minutes later, the ride was shut down.
I still say that days with a 40-60% chance of rain are the best to go, especially if you have SP's.
