^^ If it's possible you could hold off a couple of weeks, Weekdays in May are the absolute best days to go to the park. School in session, park is open. Most likely will only be 1 train on everything, but the park is usually DEAD (unless there are schools there). I've been pretty successful with the first week in May in the past.

^^^ I went about that time last year to SFMM and it was crowded. Here were some examples, SEFK had about a 1 hour wait and X2 had about a almost 2 hour wait. Tatsu was also about 1 hour. So I would recommend getting a flash pass if you are planning to go between this time. The gold flash pass is probably going to be your best option. I believe that the regular for two people is $75.00, The gold for two people is $117.00, and The Platinum for two people is $187.00. Hope you enjoy your trip.

^That's the second busiest spring break week, so it could have at least been worse! The park does sometimes offer single rider queues, but they're very often not sign posted or randomly not open. Try to ask an employee either out front or by the exit before boarding. I believe they use them on Riddlers and Green Lantern right now.

 

I would see how you do at the park before deciding on a Flash Pass. The problem with Spring Break at the park is a lot of times the park can get a little busy. Not summer busy, but the park isn't in full summer operation mode yet which then leads to longer lines for everything due to lack of staffing. You should not have any shred of hope that Superman will be open in early April.

 

dont forget revolution (like anyone needs it)

Actually, we had some VERY unbalanced rides at WCB, and we still did not flip. They have definitely done something to the weight on the cars to control/eliminate the flipping. The ride sucks now, and deserves all the bashing it currently gets.

I'm not sure where "actually" comes from; I was just saying that the only reason they added the single-rider line was probably to even further lower the chances of having the cars flip due to a car with 3 people. I completely agree with you about the bashing.

Although I will say without speaking for anyone else, that I'm 6 foot 1 and 1/2 and pretty badly hurt the back of both of my ankles on the ride a few months ago (when it spun, 5 times for me in fact on a very unbalanced ride). On one of of the spins some part of the car just drove into the back of my ankles. I wouldn't be surprised if they had complaints from taller people who are still allowed on the ride (I believe it has a height maximum).

The "actually" was just a figure of speech on my part...

 

The ride did have a single rider line briefly last summer, and we had our best rides on it by using it. It seems now the ride won't spin whether it's unbalanced or not. That was the point I was making.

 

I guess in the end, the GP won't notice the difference...

After my first two rides on Green Lantern, I had no idea what people were talking about when they said the ride was boring. I managed to get two flips on both rides, and got to experience one of the drops completely on my back. That was a bit painful, but a lot of fun with some great airtime. Now, my past three rides have been uneventful, with no more than one flip. My most recent ride had absolutly no flips.

 

 

Really, the GP, generally prefer height, speed, inversions, and floater airtime over ejector airtime and intensity. This is why the 2012 coaster will probably have inversions.

On one of my insane rides on Grona's Insane, a very similar thing happened to me. The rotation of the car forced my legs back and my legs/ankles hit the bottom if the seat.

 

But the ride was omg fantastic so I didn't care.

I would have loved to have been able to attend WCB. I've always had an awesome time with the TPR gang, but it just wasn't to be this year due to some health issues I was dealing with. It was the first year that I'd missed WCB in, I think, 4 or 5 years now. I am now seriously considering this other event. I don't expect it to be the same as WCB, but I would expect it to at least be better than a "normal" day in the park. If somehow the event is better than WCB was, and I have seen the reports saying WCB at SFMM was a little "off" this year, then I'd take it as the park possibly trying to rectify the situation by providing enthusiasts another opportunity to visit when they're better equipped to show the guests a better time. I don't know if this event will end up working out for me, or not, but I am glad that there's at least the opportunity.

We knew about this 'Enthusiast Day' long ago, we chose not to be part of it and to do our own event, exclusive, for our own members. It's basically the same event as ours, but marketed to the General Public and that other group. Trust me, it will not have the same 'feel' as WCB. If they want to treat this other random assortment of people better, it will just show all of us what the park is really thinking and we can focus more on other parks next year. Again, should I bring up the Knott's day? I have two gut feelings about this 'Enthusiast Day':

 

1. No one shows up, the park learns it's lesson and this event either doesn't exist next year or they tone it WAY down.

 

2. They market it enough so that tons of GP show up and it's not really a true 'enthusiast day'.

 

Either way, WCB lives on!
