On opening day crowds at most parks are pretty light. It's always a good idea to get there at least 30 minutes early. I think I remember that SFGAdv uses a rope drop, so you can get on through security and be ready to roll when the rope drops. Remember though that Nitro won't be at its best the first few runs. B&M Hypers take a while to warm up especially if it is cold that morning. You night want to grab one of the first rides, but be sure to come back later to see just how much better it gets.

AT SFGAdv. they do use the rop drop system they will let you in and the as soon at it is 10 a security guard wil come and undo the rope. you will want to be right next to the rope becuase yuo wil need ot run. if its not that crowded then you can walk. and nitro is its best early in the morning, IMO

Your best bet is to get to the park about 1hr before they open giving you time to park,get your ticket and wait by the time the gates at the ticket booth to get in. That way when everyone else is waiting to be screened trou the metal detectors your not stuck waiting 40mins to get in. Once in the park I would suggest getting on The chiller first and reriding that maybe 2 or 3 times or untill you want to or when it gets crowded. Then head over to Nitro and the line shouldent be over 10mins. If its already zig zaging then it will be about 20mins but it never really starts to get a major line untill after noon. Then after Nitro i usaly head over and ride Skull mountain becuase it dosent have a line ( or if not skull mountain then head tord Batman the ride becuase by that time it shouldent have a line over 15mins) then head toward Medusa, then rolling thunder,G.A.S.M and other atractions or rides. And with that formiluar you should be abel to ride all those rides by 2pm. And I have tryed this on weekends and it still works but it might take a littel longer instead of bening done by 2pm maybe 3 or 4pm.

accutually, woodencyclone sumed up the schudle for you day pretty well. his schudle (sp?) should suit you perfectly.

I find wooden cyclone's schedule the best, I've followed it before and it's really worked out for me. Heading to chiller first in the morning is a very good idea, because it's likely to have the slowest moving line during the day (sigh).

I think I'll follow that schedule myself when I go. It should reduce the wait for Chiller, and it gives Nitro a chance to warm up a little. Later when the park is open after dark though, you may want to try the Chiller after dark. Robin with lap bars in the dark is fantastic.

If the weather is good, watch out! The staff is usually not prepared for the crowds and the the lines at the entrance can get ugly, especially if you have to get processed for a season pass or they have placed some kind of coupon promo prior to the opening.
