What do you think the crowds will be like tomorrow, April 15th (day before Easter). I am thinkin about going but I dont wanna deal with the large crowds.

I guess that would depend on what you mean by large crowds, yeah?

Don't worry about the crowds, just get yourself a cheat-Bot, and you'll be fine.

Here's websters definition of large, since you clearly don't comprehend the meaning of the word:

"Of greater than average size, extent, quantity, or amount; big"

i.e. I don't wanna wait two hours to ride B:TR but I'd like to break in my season pass this weekend. What I should have asked is since its a holiday weekend and beginning of the season, will the crowds still be large for a Saturday? I'm goin to the park around 3pm so a bot would be a waste of money. Look at all the newbie buzzers tryin to play games! Lovin' it :)

Don't fuss with an old Buzzer, yeah? You'll get stung. *** Edited 4/14/2006 3:58:53 PM UTC by DorneyDante***

A crowd for me is three or more people invading my 5 foot radius. But...YMMV!
Expect the park to be busy, its a weekend

As I'm reading this thread, it is Friday after 7 PM and it's raining steadily. Since Great Adventure is not a resort location, but rather a "within-the-day" drive for most of its guests weather is the biggest factor.

I will guess that at this time, an hour before closing, the lines are not too bad.

I will also bet that due to light crowds that many if not most of the attractions will be closed.

Its a tradeoff. Fewer rides - but less wait times.

If it was a perfect spring day, the proportion would change.

The ideal situation is for only the rides you don't want to be closed on such a day.

Life is never ideal.

For someone who's an "old buzzer" I'd have thought you'd have read the TOS or seens someone else flamed for not having read the TOS by now.

I'd also think you'd know how to predict crowds yourself.

1. I've been posting here under this name, and under the name "ravenguy98" long before 6/26/2001, your registration date, if you're calling me specifically a newb (as if that even matters.) But you know what, I'm not going to automatically assume that I've been posting here longer than you, because you could have possibly had a name before DorneyDante, the one you have today. I'll at least commend you for the attempt, no matter how far of the target it may have been.

2. "Large" in the case of amusement park crowds is a completely subjective term, one that has its own meanings depending on who's answering the question. I will at the very least suggest never going to a park as popular as SFGAdv on a Saturday if you are really that concerned with "large" crowds. Whoduh thunk it, amusement parks are busier on the weekends!
