SFGADV Coaster after dark questions

Sunday, March 28, 2004 1:07 PM
Hi All,

I was going to head to coasters after dark on Friday at SFGADV. I had a few questions and was hoping you guys could help me.

1st Does the park get really crowded for this event?

2nd Do you have to be a SFGADV season pass holder or can you be any SF season pass holder? I currently have my season pass through SFA.

3rd Are all coasters open?

Thanks for your help.

1. The park will probably be empty. Prior to this year, CAD was held within the first few weeks of actual operation, but this year, with the park not offically open yet, I think you can safetly expect light crowds.

2. I have heard yes, but I am not certain. You should call to confirm this. 732-928-1821 Mon-Fri, 9am-5pm.

3. They claim all of the coasters will be open, and possibly some flats.

1. There's a chance the park can be crowded because, I'm a HS student, we have spring break starting this wednesday so most likely alot of people will come. The weather has been good here in NY. Since it's after dark, the coasters won't be that long I think. I was there last year and it didn't have alot of people.

2. Yes

3. Last year all the coasters expect Viper and the kiddie coasters were open. I don't think both sides of Batman&Robin: The Chiller will be open until later this year.I could be wrong.

Yes to what question? He asked two questions.

Do you have to be a SFGADV season pass holder?
...or can you be any SF season pass holder?

Which one is yes? :)

In reply to Starintraining's post:

According to www.gadv.com the Batman track will be the only one open at the beginning of the year. Later on both tracks should be open.

Am I really this stupid? Am I missing something?

He said he is a sfa pass holder and asked if you had to be a gadv pass holder to get into the event.

Do I not know coaster talk well enough?

I already posted this question in the Meeting Calendar, but since there's already a thread on it...

My main concern is whether or not all of the coasters will be open. I went on opening weekend last year and S:UF and both Batmans were closed. Although I heard that everything was open for CAD last year, it was held later in the season so I don't know what to expext.

While it was a fun day nonetheless, I was a bit disappointed, and I'd rather wait until they open everything before driving all the way down there.

Does anyone work at the park that can confirm what coasters will be open? I'd call them, but I doubt I'll get a straight answer.


Edit: Oh, and as for crowds, I went on a regular operating day this time last year and we literally had walk-ons for everything. We rode NITRO until we literally couldn't anymore because it was so cold. *** Edited 3/29/2004 10:03:52 AM UTC by nelson324***

I actually live 1/2 hour away from SFGADV. My girlfriend goes to school out buy SFA. Why am I a SFA season passholder. Lets see to get a season pass last year was $40 compared to $69 at SFGADV. Hmmm let me think. DEAL! Thanks for everyones help!

Opening day last year everything was running fine. Sunday morning, Chiller and B:TR both vallied during testing. Of course, S:UF was not running yet. At CAD last year, which was the day of S:UF's opening, S:UF went down in the afternoon and didn't come back up at all. Nitro was single train operation the whole time. I left around 5pm and apparently didn't miss much.

Does anybody know if the food places and gift shops will be open during the event?
