For those wondering when the Chicago area park will open, its Saturday, May 1st. They don't have the season schedule up yet but a small caption on the
shows opening day.
The countdown begins. :)

Is it just me or does SF's new site have a terrible load time?
Monday, December 8, 2003 10:01 PM
Great, can't wait! I'll be there.

My memory has failed me. :) Isn't that a little earlier than last year, or is it usually the first Saturday of May?

It has been the first weekend in May recently....
I remember, about 5-7 years ago, they used to open for the season the last weekend in April, but that hasn't been for a few years.
I wish those days were back, but it seems that's the route they are taking lately, (1st weekend in May)
Floorless for 2005 PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!

any by the way...sorry for re-posting
For me, the countdown to 2004 started Nov. 3..
ONLY 4-1/2 months left!!

They are taking that route of the first weekend of May because they have a crap load of corporate private outings that rent the park throughout all the weekends in April.

Actually, I thought it was the second weekend of April that they started the buyouts.
Anyway, April is a crapshoot when it comes to weather, especially the beginning of April.
I am beginning to think that SFGAm holds the most private outings of any park. They do the outings in April, the end of September, and the beginning of October. *** Edited 12/9/2003 5:16:36 AM UTC by Chitown***

I can't wait either, this will be my first trip there and planning on going a couple weeks after they open.

Just a side note, Deja Vu will open on September 1st, 2004 and close soon thereafter. (:) j/k, hopefully) *** Edited 12/10/2003 1:23:00 AM UTC by Willh51***

Well, I'm getting a several second load time and on a T3 connection (on this fast of a connection there is usually absolutly no lag time at all no matter what site you go to), so I'd say yes, the new site does have a terrible load time.

Ugh, those outings... I know this all boils down to me being careless, because I didn't check the schedule ahead of time, but I drove out for what I thought was the first Sunday of Frightfest (and it usually was) but LaSalle rented the park out. Needless to say, it was a costly mistake. :)

Ahhh...the infamous sarchasm. "Paging Dr. Butts, paging Dr. Butts. You're a little behind."

With the approach of snow coming this at least is something to look forward too!!!!!!!!!!

Is the second weekend very busy in May? I am looking at that weekend or the weekend after.

Can't make it. I'll be getting married that day. :)
Friday, December 12, 2003 1:56 PM
Where are your priorities Vater?
The wedding will have to be postponed.
She will understand. :)
Friday, December 12, 2003 2:11 PM
Ok...you can break the news to her then. :)

I got an email today concerning this, anyone notice it says "New shows and New RIDES for 2004"???
I wonder if they are talking about the six flags chain or SFGam. Interesting though, says stay tuned to sixflags.com for upcoming details....
