Well, i was pretty nervous about how many rides i would get for physics day, but i guess i was wrong. Heres my thoughts on what i rode
1st. Double Loop...eh whatever
2nd. Batman Knight Flight...What can i say, the ride placement for this one is genius. Probobly the most entertaining line ive ever been in. I ended up waiting an hour and forty five min, and was well worth it. The thing that really made me mad was they were only rnning ONE TRAIN! I asked the ride op and he said there wasnt enough people in the park. I dont know where he got that one...the place was a mad house.
After Batman we went for our catored lunch, and all i have to say is those were the best hamburgers ive ever had in my life.
After lunch we decided to hit The Villain (best ride in the park IMO). Waited 20 min. This ride impressed me the most out of all of the coasters there. It is truly well worth the wait no mater how long. Managed to get 15...yes i said 15 laps on it by the end of the day including seven re-rides, becuase a lot of the schools left at 4. We didnt leave until 6.
Next was Serial Thriller. I had never been on an SLC before. I cant understand why these rides get such a bad rap. Definetly one the most intense and smoothest coasters ive ever been on.
After Serial Thriller we decided to hit Superman. Man, what a great ride. I sat in the very back. Ended up waiting about 25 min. Ended up losing my voice on that one.
After Superman I went over and watch X-Flight test for about 15 min. The ride is HUGE, and the station looks awesome, cant wait to go back and ride it.
After buying a Villain and X-Flight shirt, i decided to go finish the day on Villain (my new favorite woodie). I cant believe i got away with having about 8 in. of space between my lergs and the lapbar every ride...lol. I managed getting 15 laps total including 7 re-rides ( only about five poeple in the station). I managed to forfill one of my lifetime goals of making out with a girl on a lift hill...lol. It was a great day.
sorry so long

An hour and 45 for Batman with one
train? What the hell is that? Glad I wasn't there, I'd be super pissed. I just don't get how running one train and keeping people waiting that long is good customer service. What a load of crap. I rode Mine Ride today with four other people in the train and they ran two.

I have only been to SFGL once where the photo booths are open. That was fright fest. Out of 10 visits last year, they were only open once. Thats crap.

Last night, the park was DEAD. Serial Thriller and Villain both ran two trains, but Batman still ran one, turning a potential walk-on into a whopping 30 minute wait. Also, the marine park wasn't even open.

I always try to but an onride from every new park I go to, so i ended up getting an X-Flight and a Villain shirt.
