After one of my best trips to Six Flags last Friday (Sept 20) I decided to return for round two. It had rained here in Cleveland from when I woke up at 6 am until about 3 pm nonstop, so I was expecting crowds to be pretty small, and I was pretty much right.

We got into the park about 7:40 and headed straight for Villain, but on the way there we came across the House on Hell Street haunted house. We were too cheap to buy wristbands, so we asked the person at the door how much it cost and she just let us go through. It wasn’t the best haunted house, but it was decent.

We moved on to Villain after that, and I’d have to say that the first ride was possibly the best Villain ride I’ve ever had. The first thing I noticed was that it seemed like we were flying up the lift hill. I’m not sure if it was faster than normal or if I was just imagining it, but it was awesome. After that ride we got 6 more rides in a row without getting off, making for a total of 7.

We moved over to double loop next which was one of the coasters I skipped last week. It was pretty cool how they hung orange icicle lights on the inside of the tunnel, but I was kind of disappointed that they only hung them in half of the tunnel. We headed to Batman next.

Our first ride was pretty awesome; we were sitting in the second last seat and got a sweet ride. We went around again and were sitting in the second last row this time, and everything was going great until the ride op came over and totally stapled me. It was still a decent ride, but I was kind of mad about that. After that we decided to wait for the front seat because I had never ridden there before, and I’d have to say, that was possibly my best ride on Batman ever.

Next we headed over to Serial Thriller and got a ride in the front row. This was another coaster that I had never ridden in the front row before, what was cool was that we had the whole train to ourselves. It was cool riding in the front, but its still not that great of a ride.

We decided to head over to the arcade next and play a little DDR, and then we headed over to the big dipper. We walked right into the front seat but we had to wait for what seemed like forever because the ride ops were just sitting there talking. It was an awesome ride though; I just can’t get over how much airtime it has. We took another ride near the back after we got off.

And then we were off to Superman. I was really hoping to get some X-Flight rides in tonight but was disappointed to find it closed. What really kind of gets me mad is the fact that they have employees standing around doing nothing, yet they close one of their biggest rides all night? Anyway, we got 5 rides on Superman in a row including one in the front seat and one in the back seat. Superman is still an awesome ride.

We decided to ride Mr. Hyde’s Nasty Fall after that. I’m not a huge fan of the old intamin freefalls, but it was all right. By now it was about 10:10 and we had ridden just about everything we wanted to, with the exception of X-Flight, so we headed back to Batman.

As we got into the station we walked straight into the front seat, and then as we returned to the station, nobody was in there so we got another ride in the front seat! And then finally we moved back to the second row and got one last ride on Batman. We had about 30 minutes left to ride before they closed the rides, so we figured we might as well go back to Villain and get as many rides as we could before we had to leave.

We walked right into the front seat on Villain when we got there, and this was yet another coaster that I was getting my first front row ride on. The front row was definitely cool, but I still liked the back better, so we got two more rides in the back before finally calling it a night.

So, after all is said and done, it was another great night at the park. The only line that we had to wait in was waiting for the front seat of Batman the first time. We got into a haunted house for free, and played some DDR. After about 3.5 hours in the park we had gotten 26 laps in, which is about 1 ride every 8 minutes!

NIce TR! I liked SFwoa too when I went. I don't know what the big deal is about it.

I also liked the park when I went and don't see why people hate it either. We had hardly any lines and rode all of the coasters. The only line we had all day was X Flight.
