Thats right. The neon green beast finally opened its gates around 2:00pm today. By the time I got over there, it was around 2:30pm and the line was stretched all the way by the railroad tracks going into Southwest Territory. I saw that line and said, NOPE!. I dont have the patience like I used to. I will wait until next year to ride it. Everybody that was getting off the ride said it was fantastic and they also said they waited about 3 hours. DAMN!!!! ----------------- Chitowns 6 year old daughter says "Daddy, Dippin Dots are nasty!!" I must say that I agree!!
... I don't think I would wait that long for X-Flight.. (oh wait.. thats right.. I did... :-/)
That is a long time, I thinkI would just wait a year too, I don't think a ride like that would be worth THAT long of a wait.. but I have done some stupid stuff like that... [S:ros opening day... 7:00 AM]
Finaly its officialy open, I will be going to Great America on the weekend of October 26th-29th. Chitown are you serious three hours for one time, I can imagine the front would be even longer. I'm only two weeks for my final trip of 2001 which will be at Great America!
hey to apolloandvolcano and pkdstar, im with ya on the distance thing...i live here in New Kent....but hey, there is a DejaVu at SFOG...thats only an approx. 8 hour drive, compared to 17 hours to the Chicago area....so im DEFINITLY goin to SFOG next summer!!!1 :) email me, maybe we can tag along :) ----------------- ROLLERCOASTERS....BETTER THAN OXYGEN BABY!!!!!!
I use to be in those batman lines for like 5-6 hours, then i relize i would get there when the park opens and hit B:TR the ride first and last, just before they cutoff the line and not allow any more people in the line.Plus when Giant Drop open they were 2-3 hours long. Also Viper had 3 hour long lines at peak times. And Columbus Day is the second to worse time to go there during Frieght Fest, the last weekend is the worst. ----------------- Good Ole Black Label!

What made it even worse for the long wait time was they were accepting Fastlane for the ride. I dont agree with this program to begin with but they should have not allowed it for DV on its first day of operation knowing everybody and their mother wants to ride it. Thats slowed the line even more then it already is being a low capacity coaster. Its ridiculous!!!! Just from the entrance to the ride, it states that "This is a ride that uses 1 train so expect 1 1/2 - 2 hours from this point" However the line stretched way passed the entrance. ----------------- ========================= "The Peoples Elbow" or "The Spinaroonie?.

Um... They did NOT take FastLane at DejaVu... Chitown, DejaVu is the blue ride with the green track.... also, Great America is in Gurnee, IL. What DejaVu are you talking about because they weren't taking FastLane at SFGAm's DejaVu. I asked. There isn't even a sign for it. The FastLane queue was empty all night. It just seems like they take it because the line moves so slow. All I saw were some wheelchairs come to the exit right when it opened.

Well then I hope you wont be suprised when I put a lit cigarette in your eye and a size 11 combat boot in your ass!!!
Why people stress about FASTLANE I *still* dont know.. lata, jeremy --Definitely one of the "HAVES"
Thankyou Indiana. I know which ride I am talking about and they were taking Fastlane passes for DV. I saw a bunch of people go right up the exit and watched an employee punch their cards. I may be mistaken but that is what I saw happening. ----------------- ========================= "The Peoples Elbow" or "The Spinaroonie?.

ooh a size 11 scares me, NOT! Try my size 14 steel toe boot up your*****and my ****ing cigar and cigerette in both your eyes. I am a big guy that U deffinatly don't want to screw with. I work out and lift weights everyday kick ass of little punks like you. Why we hate Fastlane its because we pay alot of good and hard earned money to get a season pass and season parking and they stab us in the back wih Fastlane, it should be season passholders getting up in front and ERT! Season passholders are responsible for a big majority of Six Flags buisness and revenue, ESPECIALLY at SFGam. If it wasn't for season passholders those 2 new rides wouldn't even be there, let alone the park surviving for as long as it has!!! ----------------- Good Ole Black Label!
