I went to SFNE at 9:30am and I waited on the bridge for my friend, who never showed up. So then at 10:30 me and my other friend Shawn decided to go in without her. We get in and there is the biggest line to get the season passes processed so we decided to get them done later on. The first ride we went on was Mind Eraser (not my choice)! It was walk on, we got the front seat and it was pretty good, it seems alot less rough than last year. We then headed over to Flashback and had a few walkons, again not my choice. It was fun but real bumpy. I then went to Cyclone (one of my favorites) we rode that a few times and it was really fun we took the back seat and almost fell out. After that we decided to go to Batman: The Dark Knight. We waited for an hour but it seemed forever seeing how there was a guy in front of us that smelled really bad. When we get up in the station ready to board, the train in front of us stops on the lift! THE WHOLE STATION SAYS "UHHH"! When the train starts to go everyone claps. After that goes and the next one goes on that stops, this time everyone is MAD! After about 20 minutes total and them done testing more trains we finally get to board, it was real exciting sitting in the front seat going up the hill. We hit the top and we went down with our hands up, I personally think the ride was OK, I didnt like the way it was over so fast, it is just to short I think. After this we went to get our season passes processed and we waited in line for 2 HOURS!!! That was the longest 2 hours in my life! We finally got our pictures taken (mine was ugly) and we had time for one more ride, Shawn said BDK I said SROS. Of course Shawn is my ride home and he is 2X bigger than me so its really his decision. So we went to BDK and this time only waited 20 minutes in line because it was raining, this time I went on we got the front again. And I we went on again, this time it was funner than the first for some reason. The ride seemed shorter but funner. We got off and then we went home.


1 - worst 10 - best
Cleanliness: 9 (You would hope being the first day)
Staff: 8 (They had just enough staff)
B:DK: 8 (S:RoS is 10x Better IMO)
Landscape: 7 (It could be better)
Lines: 6 (There were alot of LONG lines in the morning)
Overall: 7.6

Nice report! SFNE is a very appealing park now that B:TDK is in place, thanks for filling us in!

Not MLK's words but mine..I have a Dream! I have a DREAM! I HAVE A DREAM!
I have a dream! That SFMM fans will be able to walk hand in hand with CP's!
AND no ONE cares what a coaster is and what a coaster isn't!

Great trip report. I was there opening day also and we waited about 2 hours to get our season passes processed as well. I was quite surprised and of course annoyed with the long line. It made me glad that it was a nice cool day.

I thoroughly enjoyed BDK. I wasn't expecting much so I was very surprised. I'm glad that they added another good coaster to their collection. Now when I go I have three must ride coasters: SROS, BDK, and the Cycone. Not necessarily in that order. All the others are optional.

Ridden 74 coasters so far. 24 were wood.
Plan on having over 100 in June. Wish me luck.
