I am thinking about going to SFGA before I get married (last trip as a free man) and was wondering when the best time before August would be to go. I was looking at maybe May but can someone help me out.

Early may I usally get a TON of ride time in. So your best bet is to go early in the season. I usally go on chilly/cold days to even get more ride time.

make sure that you hit superman early...it's the newest ride still and will propably fill up fast next year too... doesn't hurt to get that early rush in either...

Are school's still in session in May, if so, what would be the best time to go, middle of the month, end of the month? I will take your advice on Superman first, that looks awesome.

Look at the opperating schedule and go one of the first 2 weeks they are open during the week. After that, schools start letting out and it starts picking up in attendance.

If your spouse-to-be won't ride with you, you might want to reconsider the whole wedding thing. Then again, my wife is evidence that spouses can learn to like coasters.

What other fun things are there to do in Chicago? I know the Cubs and White Sox are there but is there anything else fun to do? We would probably be going on a weekend.

Hey. I havn't been to Santas Village in about 12 years. How is it? Worth a visit? Also, How about Kiddie Land? I use to love it when I was younger. AKA, about 12 years ago. Anyone know?
