Having extremely limited time before work I made the 30 mile drive to SFA on Saturday. It was another gourgeous day with 70 degree temps and plenty of sunshine. I got there around 12:30 and my mission was to ride S:ROS and take pictures of Batwing. The parking lot was a little bit more filled up then usual so I wound up in the first overflow lot in front of the waterpark. I had to be at work by 2:00, a half-an-hour away. I madly ran to get to Superman which is quite a long distance away from my spot. The first thing I noticed was an abundance of cheerleaders, the reason for my distant parking spot. There was a competition going on in front of the Batman stadium. I got in line for S:ROS and they only had the red train running but lines were moving faster than normal because there wasn't a single lapbar re-check while in line. The blue train thankfully has returned though and workers were making adjustments and adding finishing touches to it on the transfer track. Batwing tracking is finished and they were working on the path to the coaster and putting the roof on the station. It once again appeared that everything was running. I got in one ride and made the mad dash back to my car. I wish I could have stayed, but that's life as an adult.

SFA looks to have a nice season layed out. Flying coaster, "duel" skycoaster, better employees, and they seam to be running the rides all at the same.
What is life without geniuses and SFA?
