Does anyone have a listing of the tentative schedule for SFO 2000? It seems that no one the web has the Operating Hours schedule, but somehow everyone knows such dates as May 5, opening day. Which, at the moment still could seemingly be pushed until a later date (depending on construction).

From what I've heard, May 5 is definitely the opening. However, Premiere has allegedly bumped back grand reopenings before. As the legend goes, last year they held back the opening of Six Flags America by a week. The problem is they didn't tell anyone, especially the guests gathered at the gates. So IMHO I wouldn't be surprised that if at least two of the new coasters aren't ready opening would be postponed.

I was told by the season pass people that it is going to open on May 5 and that is all that they know. I think that unless it is a safety hazard to be in the park it should open then. Of course I expect one of the rides to not be ready. My prediction is that Superman Ultimate Escape will not open. Something tells me that there is going to be mechanical type problem that will need to be worked out with the LIMS or something. I also think that they could push it back but that they need to send a letter to people such as season pass holders saying this. I will be there May 5 unless an official of SFO tells me otherwise. As far as the rest of the schedule they should have that soon. Probably some issues on time they are dealing with now.

Is this a new park from scratch opening or did Premier parks just buy this park?

Premier Parks has owned Geauga Lake for three or four years.

O.K. So it was one of Premiers parks before they bought the Six Flags chain. I have another question. How come the Six Flags properties are not included for using a season pass? If you look on there website they tell you this.

There has always been confusion about Six Flags "properties". Six Flags passes were NOT always good at Geauga Lake. Until halfway through last year, around the change of General Managers, it was initiated that all passes would be accepted at GLP. Until then, you needed a coupon. Premier may have finally decided on a set policy now.

The question has to be asked now that will Six Flags finally set a policy to have one and only one season pass card for all it's parks? If you've tried to use a SF pass from a different park, you'll know what I'm getting at. :)

Actually if the name of the park starts with Six Flags then it is considered a Six Flags park. If it starts with something else than it is considered a property. The passes do work at the official Six Flags park names.

The official schedule has been posted on the SFO website (www.sixflags.com/ohio). Opening Night is set for Friday May 5th at 5:00 pm, which is kind of strange......but nonetheless, I will be there.

I'll be there too Ray

I expect I'll probably be there as well. Pittsburgh isn't THAT far, and even if all the new rides aren't in yet, the existing rides should be running, and I can get my season pass processed...
Abandon all hope, all ye who...oops, too late. Bye!
