Unfortunately, the only time I've been near this park was even before Walibi purchased it. It was called Flevohof, and I didn't know it existed at the time (I believe it was 1990). If I ever visit the Netherlands again, however, I will be sure to set a day aside for a trip to SFH.
Edit: By the way, how is Robin Hood? Aside from being an absolutely gorgeous coaster, it looks like a great ride. I'd love to see a Vekoma woodie in the States; it may help their less-than-stellar reputation over here. I doubt it, but it would be nice to hear some Vekoma praise instead of the tired complaints from the h4+3Rz once in a while. ;)

I was at Six Flags Holland last year.
It was a very crowded day, and even though we constantly queued up, we were only able to get 7 rides in total. (Goliath, Robin Hood, El Condor, la Via Volta (Boomerang), another ride on Robin Hood, and Superman.)
I must say, the park probably could offer some fun with less people. After the intense waiting times, the intensity of the coaster kind of leveled off - I was bored into a state of trance that made me anaestetic to the coaster thrill.
I only remember that Goliath was a really intense Hyper... the most intense one I've been on so far, with the strongest negative G's I've ever experienced and the really cool "Stengel Dive" semi-inversion.
The SLC is a DONT: It beats you up as hell.
The Boomerang is a Vekoma Boomerang. OK, if you like Vekoma Boomerangs. I don't like Boomerangs any more.
Superman was the last ride of the day, and I was so numbed by then, that I don't remember any thrill from it. There must have been some, though... LIM start with two inversions right at the start... sounds like so much thrill, but hm.. I can't seem to remember.
Anyway, I was made to hang around in the Daily Mirror offices for 1 hour and 40 minutes before my ride.
Maybe it was just those damn small Vekoma trains on all coasters except Goliath that made riding for my 6"4 body a little uncomfortable and painful.
The winner of the park definitely is Robin Hood, a really fun small woodie with lots of cool pops and floats of airtime, intense little drops... not very tall, but really fun.
Overall... if the park is empty, go for it, if it's crowded stay away... take a drive through the scenery and look at the windmills: that's more fun.

I was lucky enough to take a trip to the park earlier this year. It's quite a nice park that's located in the middle of nowhere. Once we saw the first sign for "Six Flags," we thought we were close, but ended up driving in what seemed like a gigantic circle (it was a beautiful drive, though :)).
The two stars of the park are Goliath (which I like just as much as S:ROS at SFNE) and Robin Hood. Despite the park only running one train on each, we managed to enjoy both rides greatly. The rest of the rides are nice as well.
Even though it poured the rain for most of my time at the park, I still enjoyed my visit and would return in an instant!
