Ok I arrived at the park at around 11:45 and I ran In I went to Superman Right away I got on it like in 20 mins.Superman Has pretty good compacity. I love Superman Ultimate Flight cant wait to go back next weekend.Then I headed for Batman but It was along wait I should have went cause that was the shortest it was all day but I skipped it and V2 and Iron Wolf and headed for Eagle which happend to be my favorite ride of the day. I rode it like 5or 6 times great Air time.Then I did Viper still awesome and then Demon then I headed for Superman Again but I didnt feel like waiting again.

So I went to V2 I had like a 30 min wait not too Bad.Then I did Iron Wolf twice. Then I went back to Eagle did it again then i hit bull I had like a 15 min wait very good considering it was like 2:00 in the afternoon or something. Then I headed to Eagle again but the line was the longest It was all day. Then I did Triple Play my favorite flat in the park. Also I was really tired then so I went on Sky Trek. I left the Park around 5:30

Overall I had a very fun day. It was altille bit crowded but I was still bareable. You might have seen me I was wereing my Coasterbuzz T-shirt again.Sorry I didnt take any pictures today because I wanted to get some power riding in.

For me it was: Superman-2, American Eagle (blue)-1, Raging Bull-2, Giant Drop (I know its not a coaster)-1, Viper-1, Iron Wolf-1, V2-1. How dod you get in S:UF iin only 20 min at 11:45?! I got in line at10:30 and waited probably over an hour at least. I think it was an hour and a half. Each time I went on it it broke down for 10 min or so. Kinda weird seeing v2's line so short. Only 40 min. American Eagle didnt have a line at all at around 7:25 p.m. Demon didn't either. It did get pretty cold though so I skipped a bunch of rides. Great day for me.

I went as well. Arrived around 2, and hit everything but Deja Vu. I managed to get on Bull 6 times, it was performing well today. Only rode Superman once, but it felt better than last week, and I noticed that they planted scenery here and there, nothing big, but it's looking better already. I'll post pictures of that once I upload...

After about 6, the masses left the park, probably because it was getting chilly. Plenty of walk-ons for everyone that stayed. V2 has been surprising me this year. I was a bit bored with the ride last year, but it feels great this year. Viper was golden as usual, and Eagle was good as well. I kept expecting to be violently tossed around in the helix, but the re-tracking has done the ride wonders. Great airtime in the last row of the blue train. Wolf and Batman, well, they never fail to kick my butt. Two of my favorite steel creations, and they're only a short walk from each other. Demon was a bit rougher than usual in the corckscrews, but nothing big. The airtime on that drop is so strong... A great day. It got a bit cold at the end, and I was wearing shorts, but it was fun.

V2 was getting boring for me last year as well. Wonder if the ride has picked up speed or if it is all in our head.

Probably just all a mental thing. Same thing with Bull's trims for example. If the trims don't hit as hard, enthusiasts get off the ride glowing, because it was so intense, when in reality, the trims didn't hit because the train was going slower than usual. When it comes to steel coasters, I don't think the ride experiance changes *that much* over time, sure, the ride is different when it's cold, or raining, but it is the same ride for the most part.

I apoligize in advance for the quality of some of these photos. I used a small camera that I got for my phone, and some shots were blurred.

I dont know the line for Superman Seemed really short like 20 mins It could have been like 30 mins. I got in it cause it was short it was only alittle of the back and foruth and all of the strait away. I just got good timing.Oh yea the scenery is coming along very nicely. They Planted alot of trees. They added alot of Superman S's to the staiton. It begining to look alittle more finished.

Did they put the wheel covers on Batman this weekend? Because last week I noticed that they were just sitting there in the station.

No wheel covers yet. They are still sitting near the brake run. Thankfully, it looks as if they will be put on this year. :)

*Edit* The pics work now. I guess PBase was down for a while...

I was wondering for all of you who have been at the park this year? How much is SFGAM charging for season passes at the park? Because im debating where to buy the pass this year, and i was wondering what the park itself is charging

Did you happen to notice if anything was happening yet at the monument?

An individual season pass at the park is $95.99. At Jewel it is 87.54. At sixflags.com its like 85.13, including shipping.

The only odd thing going on at the monument is that the stairs leading up to the station appear to have been disassembled. But no workers were attending to the ride at all this weekend.

monument: I was there on the 11th (mom's day) and it looked like there was a portion of the track missing, like right after the station. I didnt take a huge look at it, just passing by. Is this where they attach the train to the track?? If so, could this possibly be getting ready for it's pre-season testing?
