I'm going to Atlanta soon, and I'm going to SFOG on a day (Saturday, 31st) that I think will be very crowded, and since I won't be seeing the park again for a loooonnnggg time I wanna make sure I can ride everything. What are some tips for when lines are shortest, which seats are best and is Deja Vu worth waiting a long time for?

Here's a tip. Dont go on a Saturday! The park will be horribly crowded.

Maybe you should try a Q-bot to get on most of the rides while you're there.

Instead of trying to get a Qbot, get a Qbot! There is absolutely no way you will get more than 6 or so rides in on a Saturday without one. Although they can get expensive if you have a large group, they are worth every penny.

P.S. - The park says you wait about as long as everyone else, but in truth, you wait at least half of what they are waiting. Sometimes even a quarter of the time.

What exactly is a QBot?

Actually the lines won;'t be very bad on Saturdays until Fright Fest rolls around. For example today (Aug. 24) we had a moderate crowd, and without a Q-Bot you could just about do everything.

However, if you want guaranteed rides on everything and some rerides, it seems as if a Q-Bot is the best choice.

I gave a detailed suggestion... if you're not a member... do a search for "best way to do SFOG"

Hope that helps.

It's now college football season. The only thing that makes coasters take a back seat. This also means Rollergator is the enemy again... for 4 months.

Does Frightfest start Oct 4th? SFOG changes to Fridays 6-11 on Oct 4th, and goes from Saturdays 10-8 to 10-10 on Oct 5th. How much more crowded on a Saturday then? I kind of wanted to be there at night.

I'm with ddrok11, get the Q-Bot. It will save you a lot of time and it's the only way you'll get to ride everything on a Saturday. We went on a Saturday in April with heavy crowds and rode some rides a couple times with the Q-Bot.

...actually, just use Homey G.'s link and replace club with www....;)

Deja Vu's give the best ride and "Vu" from the outside seats....all of them are terrific....as are the wait times, generally...

...and the only reason coasters take a back seat for 4 months is 'cause YOUR parks are closed.....nyah!....;)

The era of Zook is upon us. Are you gonna get me tickets when I come down there for the game? Maybe we can scoot over to BGT since I've never been ;)

We can't get tickets unless we're "boosters"....I couldn't afford game tickets unless I gave up some sort of "expensive" hobby....;)

But, as far as BGT is concerned, I am ALL over that place....again.....IoA has *almost* worn a bit thin, been there too many times consecutively....VARIETY is the spice of life....

I agree. Losing will be your variety this year. ;)

Only joshing you, my fine plated reptile friend. BGT it is!

By the way, the park will be open on a few un-advetised Fridays in September. Call the park for more info.
