Trip Planning Help

Tuesday, May 2, 2006 9:39 AM
I didn't realize my thread would dissapear so quickly...Is there any way to find it?

Anyway, I didn't realize SFKK didn't open until Memorial Day Weekend. My question is, are parks (HW, SFGAm, Dells, SFKK) going to be crowded in the days after Memorial Day?

Here is your thread:

It has been my experience to find pretty small crowds before, on, and shortly after Memorial Day.

I feel like a moron, now... :) Thanks. For future reference, how'd you find that? I tried searching...

If it's a recent thread, just go to page 2 of the's called Page-2-Land, cause once they leave the main page, they RARELY return...

In that area, the days immediately following Mem. Day, I've typically found lighter crowds (at least for the week until schools have closed), but also that usually means shorter operating hours... ;)

Best bet really is the park's operating schedule....longer hours means bigger crowds.

I actually went to your profile and clicked on "View gatorchomp83's posts", but Page-2-Land is just as good. ;)

Well, we got our plans together today...It's going to be a looong, but FUN trip.

Day 1 (May 25th): Drive from Tallahassee, Florida to Louisville and get a hotel.
Day 2 (May 26th): Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom from open until around 4:30 or 5pm. Drive to Holiday World for HoliWood Nights.
Day 3 (May 27th): Holiday World all day and HoliWood Nights at night.
Day 4 (May 28th): Drive from Holiday World to Atlanta, GA. Stay in Atlanta and go out to a couple clubs/bars at night.
Day 5 (May 29th): Six Flags over Georgia and drive back home to Tallahassee, Florida.

It's going to be exhausting, but it should be a great time. There's three of us going (all 22yr old). We figured that the crowds at SFoG might be crazy on Monday, so, we may just skip it and head home if it's insane. We're getting SF passes at SFKK, so it won't really be a loss if we don't do SFoG, although I realllly want to ride Goliath.

Both of the guys I'm going with have never been to any parks other than Busch Gardens and Islands of Adventure. I've been to all of the parks, so it's going to be fun seeing their reactions to everything.

If anyone has any suggestions, they'd be great.

Day 4...After you leave HW, you would have plenty of time to stop by Beech Bend and take a few spins on Kentucky Rumbler while still making it to Atlanta in time to go out that night.

Goliath is WELL worth the stop at SFOG and since you already will have season passes, I'd say go for it. Even if it's really crowded, grab a few rides on it and then head home.

Don't forget the time change from Eastern to Central going to HW, and vice versa coming back.
