My buddies and I arrived at SFA around 12:18pm.
So we started our Six Flags America trip with a ride on Two-Face.And it was a walk on and so was Wid One.Then it was off for a flight on Batwing and it gardly any long lines.And from Batwing you can see some construction.Who knows it might be a ride coming besides Batwing for 2003 season.
Then it was off for another flight but this time a flight on Superman Ride Of Steel. The line on Superman Ride Of Steel were not to bad. We only had to wait for a 5 train wait. Because they were only running the Blue train. The Red train was on the transfer track for end of the season maintenace on it. So after a ride on Big Red it was time for a break. So we grabbed 2 slices of cheese pizza and 2 drinks. Now it was off for a flat ride on the Iron Eagle witch was also a walk on. Then we hit another wooden coaster but this ttime a ride on Roar. We only had to wait 5-10 minutes to ride Roar. Because they were having problems on it. And we also rode Roar at night.
And oh boy was it fast at night. So after a ride on Roar we took in another flat ride on the Flying Carolsel and it was a walk on. We even rode the Mind Eraser witch was a walk on. And you could see some Blue storage containers witch might contain supports for a coaster.So got to ride the Alpine Bob flat ride before they closed it for the day. Then we took in a night flight on Batwing before we took a dinner break. At the Crazy Horse Saloon. so we ended our Six Flags America 2002 trip with 2 night flights on Superman Ride Of Steel.

3 laps on Superman Ride Of Steel 10-10

2 laps on Roar 10-10

High Sea's 1 time 6-10

The Alpine Bob 1 time 10-10

1 lap on Mind Eraser 9-10

Flying Carousel 1 time 10-10

I'll rate the 2002 Six Flags season 7-10.

Because of all the lin jumping and the way SFA dose thier fast pass. And it's not right that SFA puts a whole bunch of fast pass holders on the whole train. While the rest of us have to wait until a nother train. So why have a Fast Pass or LO-Q if Six Flags America dosen't use it right.

Yeah,you bring up a good point about the fast lane/Lo Q system & it just gets me steamed that it happened again & on the same ride no less,of course I don't even plan on using Lo Q next season so I'm not really concerned about it too much.

Do you recall that one guy we met while in line on S:ROS? well that was Intamin Fan of coasterbuzz,it's funny because I kind of suspected that was him,you never know who you're gonna run into at the park these days.

Have a good offseason & in 5 months time we'll be back riding the rails yet again,at least we'll be entertained by watching all the construction during the offseason.

If you're a ride op, and you had 20 people with a Fastlane appointment, it makes sense to just put them all on one train and be done with all of them in one blow. Those people paid good money to get on their ride at their scheduled time, and instead of pissing off all of those people, it makes sense to go ahead and get them on the ride, instead of generating 20 complaints at the front office. Flastlane is annoying as hell for operators in general anyways, and anything to make it easier on them is a good thing. I'm not arguing whether Fastlane systems are a good thing or not, I'm just saying that what they do is the best procedure for everyone in that case, and its done at every park with Fastlane systems.

Once you try QBot, you'll never think of it negatively again. Everyone I've talked to who might have hated it before they used it, loved it afterwards. Now, if they just justify a reason for having QBot on Roar. The using of one train for all QBot people in line happened to us on Nitro, and no one booed waiting in line booed!

Dude, you're getting an Intamin!

They don't happen to have a addon for a season pass for those things. An extra $20 on your season pass and you get unlimited rentals of a Q-Bot at one park or something like that...

I guess I can see what one of perks of the Premium Pass will be next year, get free rental on a Q-Bot during the months of April, May, September and October.
