lines WILL be long at superman unless you get there early and ride it first always two trains running. the cyclone wood coaster rarely has a long line, but it is the best wood coaster in new england and also the roughest but its not violent its just fun two trains running. thunderbolt [a small wood coaster] has a long line because it always runs one train. mind eraser always runs two so the line moves fast, its a intense inverted coaster. overall the park can be crowded but not ridiculus crowded. have fun!

thanx for the info. What's so bad about the back seat on cyclone? How many times do you think i can ride Superman in one day if I'm there the whole day?

back seat on cyclone WILL give you some violent whips on its steep hills not good for your first time. but if you want intense and out of control, back seat cant be beat. but not if you dont like your rides rough. how many times on superman ummm... if its not a crowded day maybe 10 or more if on a crowded day maybe 4. never extremely crowded.

Lines at SFNE will most likely be pretty bad. I would say you should ride Cyclone in the back. Sure, it's rougher, but the rest of the coaster is rough without providing much of a thrill at all. At least the back has some great moments.
A few weeks ago before the schools got out, I had a good uncrowded day at SFNE. I had twelve rides on Superman, three on Cyclone, two on Mind Eraser, two on Thunderbolt, and one on Poison Ivy. Flashback was closed all day.
Last year when I went the second week of June, it was pretty crowded. I did three rides on Superman, two on Thunderbolt, and one on every other coaster. On a really crowded day, you might have to be content with one ride on every coaster.

i think preditor is a great ride! When i was there the first week of june, i rode the back seat and i got some HUGE airtime! You are completely out of your seat on it's first drop! Also, this year it didn't seem to be that rough. (i think they did some track work on it over the winter)
