What a way to spend Spring Break. Batman first. The new paint job did not improve the crew. 6/10. Nitro. Probably the most underrated coaster behind Hersheypark's Comet and Conneaut Lake's Blue Streak. 9/10. I had the pleaseure to threaten 3 line jumpers once they were locked in their restraints. They ran like unemployed steelworkers to surplus cheese when they came back. That was funny. Probably ran all the way to New York and their mommies Lexus.

Skull Mountain. 7/10. Had lunch in Wok and Roll. Everything is like $13. I like it. 7/10. Walked all the way to that tee pee and ran around in those giant foam cowboy hats. I am going wear one of them into the Frontier in Vegas and play poker with it on. Minetrain. 6/10. Medusa. Great. 8/10. Scream Machine. 7/10. It may be time for new trains. You only need 2 of them.

Did the new Spongebob Ride. They just started the theming. Had large crates painted yellow in the q-area. I think they were going to be sponges. Just a hunch. Games were all good. 17 rides were closed, but all the hair wrap locations were open. I can sleep easier knowing that.

If it wasn't for their leased out food service, those New Yorkers would starve. Loved the foam factory. Now, in line for Superman. It rains. Everbody runs out. It stops, and I go right up to the platform. Here is a 'Acer' (see Knuckelhead), and sees the group of us, like 6, with our park's logos on our jackets.

This nice man proceedes to tell me that SF is moving Superman, X-Flight, and Batman from Ohio to Darien, and this was moving here, and that was now going to there. I told him I do not think so, since Cedar Fair bought the whole she-bang. Again, he insisted he knew more than us. After hearing this 'fine educated conversation', we were up up and away. 8/10.

The safari. PLEASE FREE THE MONKEEYS!

So tell me (because I'd love to hear the story) what happened with the line jumpers? How'd you threaten them?

I ended up in the samw row as them. After they took their seats, I oh so kindly explained that they better 'run like hell' when the ride stops, because we will be right behind them. We were still on the platform when their train came back, and they bolted for the ramp, to the sounds of plenty of laughter.

AJ does not tolerate line jumping at any park. Some of you guys are spending lots of money to visit, and its the parks job to police the lines and keep things organized.

I've can't name one time I've been to SFGADV and not had line jumpers or knuckleheads. I think its a Six Flags thing. Cause I don't see these problems at Cedar Point, Florida parks,Busch,PKI and PKD. Dorney I see it every now and then. But its happens all the time at SF parks.

Yeah, that sounds like a typical SFGAdv move. There are rides that neither me nor my friends have EVER seen operating at that park. There also always seem to be a surplus of undesirables at that park. I met quite a few people in line who couldn't seem to get out a sentence without getting 3 of 4 "F---" words in it.

Perhaps it's just me, but the past two or three times I've been there, I haven't seen/experienced line cutters at all, so that's a marked improvement. As for the language in the line, well, considering the types of peeps that attend the park, I can't say I'm surprised...
