I went to sfne today thinking it would not be crowded on a tuesday... wrong! it was pretty bad and to make it worse there was only one train running on cyclone, why??? the the reason I come to the park has a short line but is about 45 mins!!! well i rode cyclone then superman a short line about 20 mins 2 trains running though. thunderbolt 1 train as usaul about 30 mins. mind eraser didnt bother and flashback didnt bother VERY long lines. cyclone was pretty much my day as always. I rode it about 6 times, keep in mind about an hour wait each time. last time i rode it about 12 times [2 trains]. I caught the fireworks while on cyclones lift, it was great and cyclone felt dangerously fast that night. they really should always put 2 trains on cyclone im not sure why they didnt the line on cyclone was about as big as opening day but that only took me 10 mins. ill be back in a few weeks maybe they will come to there senses by then.

Weird, I went on the fourth and there were 2 trains running on Cyclone. Rode it 2 times in a row, with no wait. Its much better this year after they replaced the timber on certain parts of the track. I road in the back on a train that was almost completely empty and it was probably the best ride that I have ever gotten during the past ten years on that coaster.

Running only one train on Cyclone on a weekday has been a "trademark" of that park (even pre-SF). It is also one of the most frustrating things to experience, when the line makes for an hour wait. I never go "theme/amusement park-ing" on weekends, and have seen other parks run only one train on weekdays, but usually that is OK, the waits are 20-25 minutes or less. Cyclone? During the week (non-holiday)? Fuggadaboudit! I think that I shall never see Cyclone's second train set free. And this year that coaster is better than it has been in a long time. It isn't like the marketing types need to use that "an attraction with a long line is a good thing" mentality. To me, shorter lines means happier coaster riders!
I know you rider Gonna miss me when I'm gone

The lines for Superman were long but not as long as they usually are. First time I rode it was about an hour wait, 2nd time about 40 minutes, 3rd time, about 12 seconds with ride reservation.
