I am making a decent "trek" up to Chicago for a quick trip to SFGAm. Couple of quick questions:
Sunday a good day?
Deja Vu running at this park?
Any quick tips on park itself?

Sundays usually are the least crowded days of the weekend and you should be able to get on everything. Last I heard is that Deja Vu is running. Sit in the back row of Raging Bull, seat 1-3(3rd row) of Viper, and sit in the back for Superman. Food prices are extremely high, so it might be a good idea to go outside the park for food. See the magic show, it's pretty good. And most of all, just have fun!

Actually I was at the park on Friday and Deja Vu wasn't running at all. I got to ride it once out of the 10 times I have been there since it has opened. Don't count on it being open. Be prepared for long lines on Superman. But you can always get the fast lane pass ($12 for 4 rides). I definitely recommend that if you want to ride Superman. If you plan on riding Ragin' Cajun be ready for the slowest moving line you have ever seen. Other than that it shouldn't be too bad on a Sunday. Have a great time!

The most important ones are:
1)As Gamfan already stated, sit in the back row of RB
2)Go on Viper if it's open, don't miss it!
3)Enjoy one the best coaster collections around and hope you have a blast

Without a doubt you will have fun, be sure to check out some of the shows, as some of them are quite fun. Dont forget to check out some of the flat rides. Most of them can be found in other parks but there are definitely plenty of flat rides to go around.

Without this turning into what seat is best where kinda thing, as Gamfan stated above, for Viper/RB, those are prob. the best airtime spots (RB is a definate). However, on Superman, the back slams you into your seat on the pretzel loop. I can't handle it and feel a bit queezy when I go through it (as I do on spinny rides). If this is something like what happens to you, I would suggest getting as far up as possible. I ususally ride in row 2 as the front row has a long wait and row 2 is hidden within the crowds.

Deja Vu is Open.

Sunday is usually a very good day to visit.
Get to the park early and i would head to the waiting area closet to Southwest territory. Then go straight to RB and you can usually get one and often 2 rides with littlew to no wait. I would then go hit Giant Drop which is right next door amd has no wait that early, then hit Viper before heading to the other side of the park. As for Dejavue while it has been running it never seems to open on time so if you see it running or testing you should then head for the ride.
