SFNE Help Needed

Wednesday, July 3, 2002 5:27 PM
Im going to the park the night of the 7th and the morning of the 8th. I know the lazy people who run SFNE won't have Superman running with 2 trains so time for me will be at a premium. Where are the best seats on the better rides, I know Superman is best in back, but how long should front be? Is it worth it to wait for front on any of their rides and is the Cyclone still good? When I rode it in 98, the last time I was there, it was awesome, but much has been made of the remodifications. Also, where should I go right when the park opens and what after that?

Superman is great in the front too, heck anywhere.

Batman is also good anywhere, but I prefer back instead of front, but give different rides. Cyclone is good, and this year it seems the roughness adds to the element of fun.

When you get into the park, head for Superman, the lines are pretty deadly in the afternoon (last time i went were 2 1/2 hours at noon). It might not be operating yet, so I would say head back up to Scream, because that always has a long line. Then play it from there.

I went there June 24 and the wait for front is really really long. I would say an extra 20 mins maybe... I rode Cyclone in the last seat and That was the best ride ive had on that coaster, It was awsome, Crazy Air and WOW (Read my Trip Report) And i cant beleive it was even more crazy then that before gettin modified. Mind Eraser is good werever i suppose, and Batman is awsome in the Back row. Awsome airtime in the Zero G roll. Thunderbolt is good in the back, really good... And flashback was good in the back aswell. Poison Ivy was... O.K. in the back hehe. O and the best seat on my favorite flat there... BUZZSAW is the last row on whichever side. Awsome airtime on that Awsome ride.

Wow. 20 minutes for front is SHORT. I've waited up to an extra hr. for front, but it's definitely worth it. 10 or so trains is a long wait, and 6 or 7 is decent. I usually go if it's 7 extra trains, because with single train op, that's about 30 min. (But it's my home park, so I know I can be back another time. It's definitely the best seat by far.)

What I do recommend, however, is getting to the park 15-20 minutes before opening and making sure that you're at the very front of the line for S:RoS before it opens. Then you don't have to wait at all.

yeah, Superman is the best bet first if you want to avoid lines. If you have any desire to ride Mind Eraser, that was the second longest line last time i went. Batman hardly has any lines, due to it's amazing capacity. (ride in the 3rd row or the front row "ask to wait for the front"). The cyclone is a great ride, but seems to be riding extra rough this year. I can only take one ride per visit, and i used to marathon it. Good luck, and the main tip i can give you is avoid the weekends and the waterpark at all costs. Peace.

PS: I agree with Mir - Buzzsaw is a must ride flat ride that no one else has. And do ride the Thunderbolt if you have a second. It's a much overlooked airtime machine.

A tip for any park with any coaster, unless you absolutely want the front or the back, get the second or second to last seat. Everybody wants the front or the back, and those second seats are overlooked. Last time on SROS, I had the second to front seat and it saved three trains worth of waiting for the front (the line started in the station).

Yeah, but 1-2 doesn't have the same visuals or the same wind effect as 1-1. No matter how cool the intamin stadium style cars are, NOTHING beats 1-1.

That is true, but for more time in the park, use the second row unless you feel like waiting for that seat.

There are some awesome flats at this park. Nightwing, Tomahawk, Time Warp, Chaos, Buzzsaw, Double Trouble, Twister, just to name the best.

Thunderbolt is an airtime machine, but too much when the lapbar flies up... Anyone else experience this?
