Hey everybody, with the 04 season approaching quickly I've been getting my list of parks to go to ready. For the next few weeks I'll be posting things like this just asking questions about the parks I've picked, so I can get the best possible time out of the parks. I really appriciate the help if you post.
Ok well I thought I would start out with SFGAdv. It looks like it has a great selection of coasters and it's a very nice park. I'd just like to know what the line times are for the major rides, what to ride and what to try and avoid, just the basics that we all talk about around CB, and anything else that you want throw in. Also if you know about a hotel around the area that is nice but not very expensive please tell me because I dont have the largest of a budget. Thanks to everybody who helps out on this.

For hotels, you can check their website for logdings in the vicinity.
As far as ride times go, it depends on when you go. On saturdays in the dead of summer, you can expect upwards of an hour wait for the major coasters, with the exception of Medusa, Scream Machine and Nitro. The generally run three trains and the line moves fairly quickly. Ride all available flats, for they may not be there the next time you go. You can skip Viper and Rolling Thunder, unless you are doing it for the credit. Other than that there is nothing outstanding about them. Where to eat.....Best of the West in Frontier Adventures. Have fun!

Go in late May/early June. I've always gone around this time and lines are not a problem. You won't be disspointed with the coasters, just pray that the Chiller is operational, because it's not to be missed. Go and enjoy yourself. Great Adventure is a great park. *** Edited 1/27/2004 3:43:01 AM UTC by BullGuy***

Here is a basic rundown of the line lengths:
~Nitro-long but moves fast
~Blackbeard's Treasure Train-short (ride for the credit)
~Skull Mountain-usually short (ride in the back for airtime)
~GASM-adverage (expect a rough ride)
~Viper-skip this one no matter what
My plan of attack would be to get to the park at opening and run to Superman. Once you do what you want to in that section of the park, go over to Movietown. There you can eat lunch at Mama Flora's Pizza. After Movietown, head toward Frontier Adventures.
It may help to look at the park map on Six Flags' website before going.

One park that you will deifnitely NOT want to save for a weekend... go mid-week. Many go to Hurricane Harbor during the day, so lines should be better before the sun goes down.
