Hey I'll be at SFoG Wednesday and was wondering what your favorite seats where on the coasters. Plus, what are some things I shouldn't miss besides the coasters? What has the longest line? I heard to hit Scorcher first the Superman. Thanks. Peace.

I heavily reccommend Ga. Cyclone in the back seat.

Is that a Q-bot in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

Wassup, I went to SFOG last year and had a great time. Be sure to get coupons at the Georgia Welcome center for 1/2 off if you're not a season pass person. I would hit Scorcher, Acrophobia, then Deja Vu if it opens . Then hit Superman, GASM, Ninja and Cyclone. Next go to Batman and Mindbender. Don't skip Ninja just because people say it sucks, if you sit up tall it doesn't hurt. I actually really liked the ride. As for seats, I like the back and front in Scorcher, back in Deja Vu, middle in Ninja, back in Batman, back in GASM, back in Cyclone, and any in Acro :)! Have a good time!

GASM-Back seat most definately, same for scorcher...and cyclone (insane airtime) and Ninja (to prevent injury to head). It doesn't really matter on Mine train....catch a back or front seat on DJV, back seat on superman for awesome G's, same for Batman...and also Mindbender for G's and a bit of air.

Rides you shouldn't miss--a cute dark ride called Monster Plantation, Splash water falls and the thunder river water rides are great..the great gasp is a very scenic ride...and of course, don't skip on Acraphobia!!

Hope this helps!

Let's work our way from front to back.

Scorcher is the best in the Back Seat. You get "standing air" on the first drop.

Mindbender can be ridden anywhere.

Batman is best in the front(duh).

Deja Vu: well, I've only been on it once , in the front, and it was awesome.

Ninja , well , I hate Ninja.Headbanger anywhere.

GASM can be ridden anywhere , but typical wooden fashion , view in front , air in back.

Superman is best in back for the most G's and anywhere you ride has a good view.

Dahlonega Mine train is best in front , for some very fun sharp doses of ejector air.

Cyclone:see GASM.

And for no-misses , Monster Plantation , Great Gasp , And Acraphobia.

P.S. DON'T EAT AT DEJAY'S DINER!!!!

Don't skip Acrophobia under any circumstances. Lately the Vu has been running well, but IMO it's not worth more than an hour's wait (well, nothing is). But you're going on a Wednesday so crowds won't be very bad.

Scorcher: Back left seat. You get standing, sideways air ont he element that is similiar to the "stengel dive"

Cyclone: BACK SEAT!!! Drop #4 rules!

Mindbender: FRONT SEAT - Ejector air in 2 spots at the peak of the hills.

Superman: Back row, for the g's

Batman: Front for visuals, back for leg numbing g's in the helix

GASM: back car, middle row - floater air and not as rough

Ninja: second to last row - eliminate the headbanging

Deja Vu: I rode in the front of the one at SFMM, and it wasn't that great. Maybe the back is better, but I wouldn't know since it's never open.

Dahlonega Mine Train: This ride is always uncomfortable for me. The bar crushes you, and the train jerks forwards and backwards the whole time.

Don't miss Acrophobia & Monster Plantation, and if it's crowded, get a Q-Bot

Definately miss Monster Plantation.
I swear, I'm still having nightmares from that ride. . . Serously! haha It's an ultra-corny spoof of It's a Small World...

Anyway, ride Georgia Cyclone, back car, front row... some ultimate moments where it felt like i was standing up if you like that feeling (kinda scary) I agree, Acrophobia is a must.

I thought free fall was pretty fun too.

Freefall's a first-generation drop ride. It's a good joke, because it feels like the ride's gonna brake on the lift.

Don't listen to CoasterBill, obviously a wanna-be enthusiASS. Monster is a unique ride, and is not a rip off of "It's A Small World." It's fun, relaxing, and a good way to spend 5 minutes in A/C.

Actually its "Join the monsters at the mansion. You're invited to a picnic, monster picnic, where humans are allowed to stay!" then it repeats. Monster plantation rules, don't skip it!

In addition to what others have said, make sure you climb up the top of the hill and take a look at the Riverview Carousel. It is really beautiful and you can even sit on a rocking chair and relax awhile. It's a great meeting place if your party becomes separated too.

Oh..and while Batman is good in the front, make sure you get a backseat ride too. Out of all the Batman's, I think this one is somehow the most intense. I don't know how that could be the case..maybe the lift hill is faster. But whatever the reason, the G forces in back are STRONG.

Another set of thoughts on seating park/planning:

1. For obvious reasons, the Vu is the last coaster to be checked over by the mechanics. Typically during the week it will start testing around 11ish.

2. DO NOT skip the Plantation, if nothing else for its historical value.

Now for seating:

1. Scorcher -> The back seat is usually kept for Lo-Q, so go for the seat in front of it. Gently stand on your tippy toes (GENTLY) when the lock the seats down and you will be shocked and how much air you get.

2. FreeFall: N/A

3. MindBender: Again, back seat is usually kept for Lo-Q. Go for the next to back for max g's and air

4. Batman: 1 ride in the front if you have never ridden a B:TR before. Back two rows typically used for Lo-Q, but if there are not enough riders to fill all eight seats, they will pul from other rows. Go for the back if possible

5. The Vu: if possible (pure luck) try to get in the very last seat (8B) to experience all that the Vu can truly deliver. The pull up and down spike 1 is PURE adreneline.

6. GASM: with the refurb trains, front is VERY smooth; back if ya like the woodies

7. Supes: front for a more tranquil experience, back for a major increase in g's. If at all possible, try a night ride: totally different experience.

8. Mine Train: N/A

9. Cyclone: see GASM

for the Phobia, it will go 1 full turn so you will end up where you started. I would recommended choosing a seat NOT facing the sun.

Have a GREAT day at SFOG!

ChristcFreak, are you absolutely SURE that the last line is not "where humans are allow TODAY" because there IS a sign going into the ride that says Humans allowed today.

Brian, who's nitpicking... he knows.

Daarth, Wheelie is your run-o-the-mill enterprise. Hopefully I might be able to go tomorrow. Depends on whether Josephine (aka Legendary gets his ducks in a row). ;)

Coasterbuf, you're still a moron. LOL j/k
