I am making my first trip up to SFNE this year and was wondering if anyone had any tips to offer?

Get your credits, then spend the rest of the day on S:ROS.

Prepare to smell a whole lot of things you shouldn't smell in an amusement park.

There's a couple of dead ends in the park. Look over the map before you venture in. Not the best layout, that's for sure.
And you know Lake Compounce is not far away - about 45 minutes.

Pray they have more than one train running on Superman. Back seat is the best. Pay to cut passes make lines extra long for everyone else, so you can get one of those for another $35.

I would recommend getting Q-Bot, ride S:ROS as much as you can before the crowds, then go to the south end, then north end, then back to S:ROS. And depending how much time you have, Lake Compounce is worth the trip.

Don't get run over by the mad stampede for Superman. Kids are jumping over rails. It's madness I tell you!

Honestly, I hate everything about Ride reservation systems or Vitual waiting for fairness.
But at SFNE if you want to even enjoy the park. BUY THE GOLD BOT.
Chuck, who thinks a great park thats ran like crap.

Okay, I went to SFNE a million times. I recommand getting there on opening time, and head for Superman, I suggest to try front row first before the line form for that row.
There are many other coasters you should try; Mr. Six, Cyclone (must-ride), Thunderbolt (classic), Batman Dark Knight (forceful B&M)
Also couple of other coasters, dont ride if the line is too long unless you want credits. Great Chase (kiddie), Poison Ivy (family coaster but a clone), Mind Eraser (should I say more?), same goes for Flashback which is a Boomerang.
There are bunch of flats you should ride. Time Wrap which is Vekoma Jumper (rare ride of its type) Tomahawk (HUSS Fisbree, a must ride) Twister, and many more as you can when you have time.
As for waterpark, that is if you are interested. Their waterpark is huge if you ask me. They have Tornado which is a must try if you havent tried any ProSlide Tornado. Also try Typhoon, I havent rode it yet but I suggest you should try.
As for prices, I suggest you to bring some foods and eat in the car. To save money you can bring your Six Flags bottle to save money on re-fill if you have one. Foods there are costly, but some are good. If you are planning to eat in the park, I suggest going to Pizzara Uno or Big Ben Chickens.
Well I think that covers it. Let me know if you want to know anything... oh yeah... RIDE SUPERMAN like it is a last day of your life. It's worth the wait.

oh and Ride Cyclone in the backseat no matter what. You won't believe it and Im not saying it's a smooth rides but it's worth it at least once.
