Well, I'll offer my (unbiased) views on the subject. I've been to 10 SF parks in the USA (haven't been to SFFT, SFoT, SFMW, SFEG, SFAW) and based on my experiences, I think SFGAm in Illinois is the best overall park. It will have 12 coasters this year, among them are Raging Bull, my #3 steel, and Viper, a top 10 wood. It has a great selection of flat rides, albeit they are somewhat older. The operations are fast/smooth, the food is basically good, and the shows are some of the best.

Other SF parks I enjoy immensely are SFWoA (operations stink by my goodness, do I love their coasters!), SFMM (pretty good coasters and operations, beautiful location) and SFGAd (awesome selection of coasters, tons of newer flats, but *pathetic* operations, tons of staffing issues).

SFNE, SFoG, SFKK, SFDL, SFA, SFStL all could use some more rides, and MUCH better coaster operations. SFoG has the best rides out of this group, but the operations are horrid. SFDL operations are decent, but they have all of five coasters! They need a better ride selection. SFKK has okay rides, but one train as the norm is pathetic. SFA, when I visited, had decent operations and their rides are really good, I thought.

yeah but SFNE has a ton of new flat rides too. Vekoma Air Jumper, scrambler, flying bobs, Top Spin, Swings, Breakdance, Huss Frisbee, Rocking boat, Chance Wipeout, Huss Fly-Away, Vekoma Mad House, Bumper Cars, Chance Chaos, Spider, type of Magic Carpet ride called Buzzsaw which is the same thing as the DAvinci ride at BGW, Chance Double Invertor, and Zamperla Tea Cups. I think that's a lot

SFNE's flat ride collection is probably the best I've seen. They have a lot of stuff few other parks have.

As for the comment about SFA's lack of rides; they're working on it in a serious way! Premier/Six Flags has added new attractions at a steady rate ever since they took over. If you saw it when it was Wild World and had less than 10 rides plus a water park and then saw it today you wouldn't your eyes. In fact last year they added a new hypercoaster and three flat rides. I've been to many parks and I believe SFA is becoming more competitive every year.

Regarding the comments about SFNE and its flat rides -- yes, they do in fact have a GREAT selection of flat rides, some of the best I've seen. I guess what I meant was they need more *coasters*. SRoS is great, but that's all that is noteworthy to me. They have Cyclone, which was pretty good, but also way overhyped. But how many coasters do they have? 5 adult coasters? That's pathetic for a SF park in such a populated area of the country.

About SFA's ride selection -- yes, they're *working* on it, but I was there in 1999. They had five coasters (?) I rode? Again, for a park in such a competitive area, that is pathetic. But, the addition of SRoS in 2000 and Batwing in 2001 will most likely change my opinion when I visit this year. They definitely are getting *quality* coasters, I can say that.

I think there are noticeable differences in the SF chain. The big guns, IMO, are SFMM, SFGAd, SFGAm, and SFoT. Then you get to the smaller parks of SFA, SFWoA, SFMW, SFoG, SFKK, SFFT, SFNE who have larger facilities, some quality coasters, but just not *quite* up to par with the big guns. Then you get the bottom of the barrel in terms of amount of rides and quality of rides in SFAW and SFEG.

SFMM has the best collection of flat rides on the planet.


Just kidding. Actually, I would go with Six Flags Marine World with the best flat rides.

I think SFDL and SFGAm have a very good selection of flats. SFWoA has a few decent ones.

Those are the only three SF parks I've been to so far. I've been to Kentucky Kingdom (pre-Six Flags) and I thought that they needed much more in the flat ride department.

SfGAdv flats are never in 100% operation. No, wrong.In 1999, there was 2 days in which they had staffing. Now, do they give a refund if 10-15 rides are closed? No.

I have to apologize for my two posts in this thread. I thought the title read "Which Six Flags Park do you think is the Best SF." I brought up coasters which really have nothing to do with this thread, and I apologize. The best park for flats is definitely SFGAd, but they're never all operating, which is a bummer.
