SFMM What is the best way to visit?

Saturday, November 18, 2000 12:56 PM
I am going to SFMM on Friday after Thanksgiving, November the 25th. I went in July and although a little warm[i am from Nocal so I can cope with heat] I had a time of my life! I rode every coaster I wanted to other than Superman: The Escape. When is the best time to ride? I rode Colosus and Ninja last time and would defently subsitute those. How will crowds be and what is the best time to ride what? Any info would help!

Expect HUGE crowds. I was just there on Friday the 10th, the day before Veterans Day, and it was crawling with people. Lines were over an hour for some of the rides. Food lines were horrible. I also went down from No. Cal. in July and had a blast except for the heat! This last time was the worst I've ever experienced at the mountain, and I've been going there for a long time. So, my advice to you is to get there early, try to get in the front of the line at the entry gate and run your buns off to Goliath. After Goliath, do Riddlers and Batman and maybe Colossus, then go up the hill to Superman. After that ride Ninja if it's open, which is my favorite ride in the park for some reason, and then head down the hill to Viper. Hopefully you can get these coasters in before it really gets busy. Just expect the crowds to be large. Oh, and you might want to bring a picnic lunch. The food places were packed and most of them were closed. This is just my opinion really. Take it as you will. Hope you have a good time! :)

It is going to be busy there this whole weekend. I recommend getting there early and riding Goliath first because you will probably not have another chance to. BRING YOUR OWN FOOD!!!!! I can't say it enough! Their food is terrible and expensive.
Top 5:
1.) Medusa
2.) Stealth
3.) Riddler's Revenge
4.) Goliath
5.) GhostRider

Food at the Mooseburger Lodge is really good, however, lunch for two took 2 hours and 10 minutes on Friday 11-10. See my TR for the rant.

Lines for the big coasters will be full queue or larger.

So you want a coaster in your backyard? I hope you have a big backyard.
