How Much Time Is Your Park Worth?

Wednesday, April 25, 2001 2:36 PM
Now I ask this question not only for me, but others who'd want to visit your local park...

In your own opinion to a first time visitor to your home park, how much time would you recommend they need to experience all of what your park has to offer?

Would you say...
* 1- Day?
* 2- Days?
* 3- Days?
* A Full Week?
* Half a Day?
* Just Stay Away!!

My home park is IOA, and i'd say one day is more than enough.

SFGAm.... I would say one full day (10-10) would cover all rides and some shows.But 2 days would be nice... so you aren't rushing to get things done.

If you have it, all the time in the world, but generally a day at Knott's is enough. Two at Disney unless it's the off season... The same with SFMM.

Build it taller, faster and with a loop please! (Before I'm too old to ride it!)

1 day at PKD and half a day for SFA, unless rerides are wanted at SFA, then one day tops.

SFGAm, i would think that 2 days would be right, because you want to ride things a lot. and there are a lot of coasters if you want to get all of them. Also one day at Big Chief is more than enough, i swear from 10-5 i rode Zeus and alll of the other coasters like 20 times each, and i did every go kart track like 10 times each! There was no line for anything, it is a great park for a day of fun.

2-3 days at Cedar Point....

I love my home park...

A full day at Six Flags Darien Lake is needed. Even though there are only 5 coasters, you might want to re-ride Superman: Ride of Steel and have a few walk-ons on the Viper...

Not to mention all the flat rides and water park.

At Martin's Fantasy Island, I would have to say only a half day. It's really limited. You have only the Silver Comet as the best re-ridable ride, plus the Chance Slingshot and Chaos... otherwise, stick for the Western Shoot-Out and go home!

For Marineland, Canada... same deal... you only need a half of a day to see and do it all. You can ride Dragon Mountain about 5 times, see the Orca show, Dolphin show, ride all the rides, and have time to tease... er... feed the deer!

One full day(weekday) at PKI should get you on every single ride plus plenty of time at Waterworks. I got all 13 coasters plus rerides done by 2:30 on Sunday, so it can be done. Two days at CP, because their lines are so dang long. Try to get all 14 coasters and rerides done between 10 and 10. Near impossible(according to my 3 visits). You'll especially need the second day if you want to see all the flats and Soak City. I personally like parks that you can spend $40 per person on instead of $65 or so, but that's just me. I'm not sure about SFWoA this year, but I think one full day would be a good bet.

Dorney Park should get two days(two day passes are a huge bargin), and SFDL also two days.

Dorney Park just... rules!

Wow, you must be running a lot. :) IOA is not my home park but I've been there and wouldn't want less than 2 days. But then again, I could spend 1 whole day on Spiderman.

Anyway, SFGAm is home for me and I'd say 2 days is about right, especially on a summer weekend. It can get pretty crowded and lines are long.
