In the past month or so has anyone found a day or days when the crowds at SFGAdv were not horrendous? In other words, have there been any days when the waits on most rides don't exceed ten or fifteen minutes?
I was passing through the area last Tuesday (June 5) primarily to ride Nitro, which I rode twice shortly after the park opened. But by 11:00 a.m. the lines at most of the major rides (except Medusa) were longer than I could tolerate.
Any advice that would help me for next year?

I think there are only three ways to beat the summer crowds.One is to go on a very cloudy day when rain showers are off and on through the day.I went memorial weekend on a saturday and, it was raining most of the morning and the forecast was for rain off and on all day.When i arrived at the park,it was like a ghost town and i walked on everything and,i guess i was very lucky they had all the coasters running.Two would be to go on a tuesday or wednesday during the week once the park opens 7 days.Three would be to get there very early and take advantage of fast pass.

How long is long here? (I'm going on Monday). Is this long as in 30 min-1hr long, or long as in 1:30+ long?

Oh Snap..Rickyswmn we were there the same day :) :) Its so funny cause in New york City it had been raining all week and it was kinda cold. By the time we got to Jackson the sun came out. the Park was soo empty, we did Nitro/Medusa/Batman/Chiller about 5 times

I've been to SFGAdv several times and lines were never long. Except for The Chiller and B:TR, everything there's just 30 min. wait or less. If you want no lines, then get there early.REAL early.

I went on May,20,01 maily for two reasons the chiller,Nitro,The GoGo's and it was kinda crowded i think maybe 30 or 40mins for Nitro about 1 hr for the chiller,1hr for batman maybe less but in gothim city park and im not sure about medusa oh yea and G.A.S.M had a pretty long line too maybe about 40mins. (wich is weird since it always has 10min waits) but opening day (april,7,01) it was preety empty the longest line i saw was maybe 15mins for niro about 20 for the chiller but it was open on and off till they finaly closed it. im going monday myself its supose to be a nice day anyone know if it will be crowded? i hope not becuase i am not yet ready for anything 30mins or more.
