I have a chance to add SFOT for about $100 on my trip, I didn't want to do it on a weekend so I was wondering how bad do the crowds get on weekdays in late July. If the lines for Texas Giant and Titan are substantial I might opt not to go since I don't HAVE to go there, I want to, but I don't have a burning desire, and the fact we would have only one day and If I like a ride I like to get rerides. Is it possible to get all the coasters at SFOT in one day with several rerides. Or shouldI skip since the lines would be bad.

It's possible to hit all the SFOT coasters in one day. The real question is whether you'll be up for the late-July Texas heat. It makes a 20-minute line seem like a two-hour line. I went on a Sunday late last July, and I could only last five hours. And that was with my SFFT season pass getting me in for free.
If you can get on a bunch of rides early, hide out inside some air-conditioned restaurants or rides during the day, then start riding again in the evening, you might just avoid completely melting. ;)

SFoT is SO good that it MERITS beginning the largest of the theme park chains...missing SFoT would be like going to GL and skipping CP on your first trip into Ohio...
SFoT - the best of rides, the best of staff, the best of the SF parks...:)

SFoT is definately a "must do." The heat is a factor, but they have those "misters" (which are more like showers) that help out quite a bit. They have a fantastic lineup of coasters and a very friendly staff. Do it!

Well your help has made me decide to do it. It looks like a great park, we'll just plan to get there early and saty late and camp out for an hour or two in a resteraunt during the day. Thank you so much guys. That will bring the summer coaster tally to over 50!

Don't forget the two Premiers! Mr. Freeze absolutely rocks, and Runaway Mountain is the most kick-butt indoor coaster that I've ridden. You could always skip the Boomerang and Batman the Ride if you're short on time.
