Did they have the usuial closed flat ride problem? I want to visit this place but the anxiety I encounter while in contimplation is too extreme. I fear that I will make the drive, spend the money, and half of the rides will be closed. Lately, that's why I haven't been to any SF parks. I know that it's silly, but that's the way I feel.

So maybe I will make the 6 hour trek and visit this very cool park if the rides are open.

Most of the flat rides were closed and the park was very crowded...More than it has ever been. Batman, Medusa, Chiller, had about 2 hour waits. Even scream machine had a 15 minute wait so that tell you something. The flat rides were like all down. Hardly any were open.. Chaos: closed, evolution: closed, freefall (flat ride):closed...your better off going during fright fest or towards the end of the year.. it gets lest crowded

I remember when I was there a couple years back, when they added Medusa and the flats, that most were closed. Some Riddler thing or something was closed. It spun in the air with like 4 round seats or something.

They have a mass of flats, but no one to run em.

its sad, they better do somethin about it. they ahve had this problem for a while. Its a huge park with good rides - imagine the lines for coasters if a majority of flats were open, they would not be as bad as 2 hours.

One good thing i noticed a couple of times being there on a crowded day was that the crews kept the lines moving. Medusa and Nitro has queues that went pretty quick, thanks also to three train op.

Hey, I was there yesterday, too. Only the right side of Rolling Thunder was running when I was over there. Medusa's line, well, wasn't worth it.

Chiller was running both sides, but the line was horrendous. If the line comes out of the building, it's not worth waiting for it. I've done both sides with the laps bars, and while it makes it a much beter ride, it's not worth any wait over 1/2 hour.

NO actually it hasn't been two years since it raced. It was racing a little last year and one day I was there this year.

I *guess* they're gearing up for Coaster Celebration....from what I've heard from my NJ/PA friends, that can turn into quite a party....:)

Well...Coaster Celebration is not going to be like it was last year. Last year was a party, this year, im not so sure about. A lot of people I know are not attending since its run totally differently this year.

Rolling Thunder was racing for Celebration last year.

I signed up for the 2 day version of celebration. I'll hit the end of the first day and the start of the second. I was too tired driving back at 3 AM anyway. I'll probably try to hit either Coney Island or Morey's to make a weekend out of it.

i was there this past sunday and having never ridden the batman side, it had to be done. The line was outside the building, and through all the queues. I think it was around 1hr 15min. The first few hours after opening had short lines, but as the day wore on...had a good time anyway, besides looking like a lobster-impersonator when i left.

Insert clever signature.
