All right, I am back again. Through all the replies on my first topic, I concluded that I should visit SFoG, but now I am starting to think of a trip to SFNE and Lake Compounce. Which trip should I choose and why. Thanks.
When going to SFNE you should go to Canoibe instead of the Lake to ride Yankee Cannonball, The best woodie. Its also closer to SFNE then the Lake!?! ----------------- Out of the coasters i've ridden here is wat i rank them overall:(ive been to canobie lake and SFNE) 1. S:RoS 2. Yankee Cannonball 3. Riverside Cyclone 4. Canobie Corkscrew 5. Thunderbolt 6. Galaxy 7. Mind Eraser 8. Dragon coaster 9. poison ivy's tangled
From what I've heard, Boulder Dash is a fantastic terrain woodie. I would go to SFNE and LC because of Superman and Boulder Dash if I were you. Then again, SFOG has a B&M flyer, standup drop, Deja Vu, so it all depends on what you like.Airtime or loops and gimmicks. ----------------- If Fed Ex and UPS were to merge,would they call it Fed UP?
Its not the biggest park in the world or anything, but If your looking for World Class coasters, you wont be dissapointed. They have sever great classic Woodies, an awsome Indoor themed Wild Mouse, a couple of really unique Dark rides and walkthrrough's, and not to mention an 85 MPH 235 ft. Hypercoaster with better Air-Time than Magnum. ----------------- Fear the Wrath of the Phantom! Phantoms Revenge, Kennywood park, West Mifflin Pennsylvania.

SFNE and LC, hands down. I haven't ridden Boulder Dash, but being a CCI freak, and having ridden some of the world's biggest and best rides, I can say that every day I still foam at the mouth over a chance to ride BD. I live in Seattle, and this summer might finally get me there, and you are much closer, so GO! ------------------ www.tripowered.com
When you take your ride on SROS....You wont be thinking about any coaster out there [yes Ive been outside NE]. The Riverside Cyclone...has been called the Meanest,Baddest, Seriously Disturbed woodie in the US. It has also been said that its the closest thing you can get to the Crsytal Beach Cyclone.
As For Boulder Dash at LC....that is just adrenilen rush in a nutshell, at Night its gets even better. Trust us..go with SFNE and LC. SFOG can wait.
The cyclone's first drop was shortened and trim breaks were added when SF bought the park but this is still a great woodie just not as mean as it used to be. I have been to many parks and ridden many coasters and trust me there is nothing at SFoG that compares to S:ROS
Personally, I'd take the New England route with SFNE and Lake Compounce. While "in the neighborhood", take an extra day and go to Canobie Lake in Salem NH and swing over for a quick ride on Excalibur at Funtown in Saco Maine. IF you really get adventerous, Playland Park in Rye NY with its Dragon Coaster is not that from from LC and neither is the famed Cyclone at Coney Island (specifically Astroland) NY.

Does anyone think that SFoG would be a better choice. I like lots of coasters and quality is VERY important. ----------------- The Roller Coaster Collection: With A New Poll and More Stuff Coming Soon: http://www.angelfire.com/extreme2/rollercoaster2/index.html
