Ok, many might ask where I would get my info. Well, I remember last year when it was Geauga Lake. I came to the park on the 3rd day it opened(I believe it was Mother's day), and to my surprise, I found the Time Warp and Geronimo's Sky tower not even close to being finished. Even though it was Geauga Lake then and Six Flags now, they are still the same company. Does anyone honestly think the park will be ready on opening day with 4 new coasters, a new water park, and many other changes? No way! Last year, Time Warp was still in pieces in the parking lot, which by the way was a waiste of money if you ask me. Why do you need Time Warp when you have Texas Twister? It's the same general idea, but only T.T. is much better. Now I am not psychic, but I feel very confident in my knowledge. By the way, I took full advantage of season tix for $39.99. That's a bargain when you look at what it costs for a 1 day pass this year. Anyways, I did'nt want to pay the full 1 day admission and find out that the park was not finished. I hope that I am proved wrong though.

While not EVERY attraction may be ready on Opening Day, you can bet SFO is trying very hard to get the major attractions done on time. Villain will more than likely be ready to go, Batman is going up VERY quick, and Superman will probably depend on whether or not the LIM's and sensors are working. The new wave pool will probably be ready to go also.
I too complained about Geauga Lake's opening day last year, but when you have a season pass, at least you can go back sometime later in the season and check everything out. If I recall, all 3 rides were done by Memorial Day weekend last season.

Don't worry, the park will be open. They may have the unfortunate down ride(s), but all new thrill rides, WILL be up and running. You can bet on it.

My guess, at least BKF and Villian will be ready. SUE depends on the LIM's like Ray said. O, and I also think they are trying harder to get everything done this year then last. they probably do not want to miss their "rebirth" date with having no rides done.

It was done. How about that.

I think that's a matter of opinion. The new anchors were finished on time, but much of the rest of the park was still a mess. Rides like the Haybailer and Roadrunner come to mind.

I wonder if park employees will be better this year now that there isn't so much chaos going on in the park.
You build it, I'll ride it

Talk about living in the past... Season's over, guys! Almost ALL the parks had challenges with deadlines this year. Some still are (Perilous Plunge)...
It was a great summer...
What happened to the fun? (To quote a recent thread!)
