In a couple of weeks I will go on my first 'major' coaster vacation. On Sunday, July 7th I will visit Six Flags Over Georgia for the first time since 1999, but I was scared of coasters then. On July 9th I will be at Paramount's Kings Dominion, an the 10th I will be at Busch Gardens Willamsburg, and on the 11th I will visit Six Flags America (all three for the first time ever). What order should I ride the rides in each park?

At SFOG I know if Deja Vu is operating get on fast because the line moves slow and it can break down often.(I will be getting Lo-Q)

At PKD I know Volcano, Flight of Fear, and Hypersonic all have slow moving lines.

At BGW I know most lines are short.

At SFA I know Batwing, Joker's Jinx, and Two Face are low capicity or slow line movers.

At SFA S:ROS is also a popular coaster so don't be surprised if it has some long lines, it sure did when I was there last time.

Joker's Jinx is getting the second train on soon if not being on now, and plus the fact is that the line will move fast if they are at capactiyy.

In PKD, Hypersonic then Volcano. FOF capacity isn't anywhere near as bad as those two.

I have never been to SFOG, but I would imagine getting on Deja Vu and Acrophobia early would be the way to go. I have heard that SUF opens later, so you might be able to make it down there when that opens also. If you do this and have a Lo-Q, you should be in great shape.

At BGW do Alpengeist early and reride until the line gets long. Alpenqeist is easily the longest queue at BGW. Try to get a front seat ride, as it is an extra 30-40 minutes later in the day. Also do the Wilde Maus, Big Bad Wolf and Flume ride in the back of the park early. Loch Ness shortens up later, and Apollo never gets that bad. Personally, I like every ride here in the back, but many people like every ride in the front more. Don't miss Escape from Pompeii, it is great.

At PKD do Hypersonic first, then do Ricochet and Shockwave. Skip the woodies and Volcano and do the other steel coasters (Avalanche, Anaconda, FOF, maybe a ride on Ghoster Coaster). If you go right from XLC to Volcano, you probably won't save much time in line for Volcano, as many people go to Volcano to open the day anyways. The woodies are short pretty much all day. Night rides on Grizzly (back) and Volcano (front) are a must. The launchers are all best up front, everything else in the back.

At SFA start with Batwing and Superman. Joker's Jinx is now running two trains and the line is very reasonable. Maybe get a quick ride on that, then go ride Tower of Doom, Two Face and Wild One. Try to get over to the Typhoon SeaCoaster by 11:30, it has a slow moving line and should be ridden. Then do the other side with Roar and Mind Eraser. For out of towners, you might want to get FastLane - 5 rides for $10 - booth is on main street next to first aide. Might save you a lot of time on Batwing and Superman rerides. Batwing, Superman, and Joker are good in the front or back, the rest are back seat rides.

At SFA can you only use Fast Pass on certain rides or on all rides?

At PKD I would probably agree with SFa rules but XLC is pretty good in the back too. It rips you over the top. Also if Hypersonic XLCisn't open right when the park opens watch it alot because it forms long lines very fast. That's about it.
