Well, to start off. We ended up leaving way later and arriving at the park around 2:30. Once we are in the park we see that the parking lot is almost filled to capacity. With no one to guide us were to park, it was every car on its own to find a parking space. So, we decided to make one. Anyways, Ill give a short review on each ride.
SupermanUE: Outstanding ride. The initial launch always gets me be surprise.
MindEraser: These rides are way fun. Especially going backwords.
BigDipper: Outstanding. I was totally shocked at how you just come out of your seat evertime. It reminded me of the *old* Blue Streak before they took away the other lapbars.
Serial Thriller: This ride is ok. It would be better IMO if they get ride of those steriod OTSR. They are too huge and they hurt your ears.*Interesting note: This was the longest wait of the day (1hour and 45minutes) due to someone's OTSR wouldnt come up. So, they ended up closing it down for an hour and reopening it later on.
BatmanKnightFlight: Very Good ride. It was a little bumpy after the midcourse brake for somereason. Maybe they need to change them wheels or something. I also notice they put a net underneath the floor.
Villan: Outstanding Ride. I really enjoy this woody. It throws you around. good airtime. awesome ride allaround.
TimeWarp: This spinnpuke ride was actually fun. It wasnt scary at all.
BatmanStuntShow: It was ok. Its not as good as others Ive seen at other parks. But then again they dont have enough space to do an allout production. My only complaint is that we had to sit on the grass. I dont understand all the other shows at SixFlags have stadium seating.
Overall it was another good day here. Despite the huge crowds, the waits were not bad. I would give the trip (2) thumbs!! Side Note: I know everyone says Holiday World has the best 1-2woodie combination. But they shouldnt count out SFO.

I think Batman's guide wheels (on the outside) are in bad shape. It hasn't been tracking well through turns for a couple of weeks.
I really wish they'd take care of their rides!

I hope the Villian will be well taken care of. Seeing how it seems to be in everyone's top 5 woodies. (if ridden) I would hate to see a good ride go bad due to neglect.
Gotta ride 'em all!

Are they dumb? Do they not perform correct maintenence (that's spelled wrong!) on their coasters? Do they want them to get ruined. Or is it just slightly bad?
DOWN WITH TRIM BRAKES!

Well, they need to do something. Apparently, they havent corrected the wheel problem on Batman.
