Including every other park I've been to, this had to be one of my greatest days at an amusement park ever! No lines with on and rain made for a perfect day. Onto the coasters.
We had 11 hours in the park so we weren't in a rush. We went to Two-Face first since it was empty. It was fun, and at the end of the ride there was a problem with the brakes and we slid back up the cobra roll halfway.
Next came Wild One, we sat in back and fron twice. Not as bad as it was last time, the brake by the helix sucks though.
Next was Superman. This is my #1 coaster. We got 32 laps total all day. From 7:30 til 10:00 we rode non-stop because of no lines. This is an air-time beast. We met these two guys on line for it who had glow-sticks, and we rode with them for a while. They were hillarious and let the gravity float the glow-sticks on the 3rd hill which is an airtime monster. Greatest ride ever!
Roar came next. This is my #1 woody! 'nuff said.
Mind Eraser was ok. Only rode in the front because it was smooth.
Jokers Jynx was nice n' smooth in the front seat, but rough in some other spots. Still a good ride.
This is a short TR, this was more to tell about our 32 laps on superman, and our hillarious encounters with the two guys with glowsticks.

32 laps in a row on a great hyper? Who else out there is jealous, besides me?
Gotta ride 'em all!

It wasn't 32 straight in a row. We first rode Superman at around 2:30 and got two laps. Then we ate lunch and hit some other coasters leading toward Superman again(JJ,Roar,Wildone) and got up to 13 laps. Then we went back and hit the other coasters again, and at like 7:30-8:00, we went to superman and rode it for the rest of the night, we were addicted.

I was there a couple of weeks before it opened.
Love SFDL & SFNE Supermans.
I can't complain though,
look at Funtown Fest 8/19.
I'm ready for a marathon, anybody want the seat next to me on BoulderDash, Excalibur, Shivering Timbers or one of the Supermans???
(Let's talk a park into a continuous ride)

Is Superman a clone or close to it of Golitah!?

Nope. Superman is no where near a clone of Goliath. I think the Supermans were made more for airtime, whereas Goliath was made more for twists and turns.
