I'd love to be able to go but traveling long distances to parks probably won't happen again this year. (I can't wait til Katies old enough to go on kiddie rides - then da' wifey will be easier to convince.)
Bummer about probably not having an event at SFGAm...
But on the flip side - we do have the ACE Coaster Con here this June.
Well, in my limited experience with the park (2002 & 2003) in Allentown - opening weekend can get a tad busy if the weather is nice. After that the park is pretty empty until the waterpark opens.
Still, busy at Dorney is a relative thing. Granted, I lived just a few miles away, so we tended to avoid traditionally busy park times but in 36 visits during those two years, the longest I ever waited for Talon was 25 minutes and that was only because we had friends from out of town who wanted to visit on a Saturday.
Like I said, who knows how Hydra will affect things, but those first weekends up to (and through) Memorial Day were usually prime for walk-ons and solo rides.

Question for you Jeff (and fellow members who have been to events)...is a CBuzz member (one that pays $20) allowed to bring a non-member, say a girlfriend or something along too? Or is it strictly members only?
This is pretty cool. There's a good chance I may be moving back to Southcentral PA this winter. Heck even if I don't, I'll probably still be coming up North to check out the new stuff in NJ anyway. It would be nice to finally be able to attend my first Coasterbuzz event.
