Well, I can tell you that operations are already in mid season form. Five minute dispatches and 1 train ops. :b But seriously. It is what it is, and will always be. I don't have any specific recommendations re. food. The lines get long quickly, and stay long all day, so keep that in mind. Nevertheless, you can do absolutely everything worth doing in 2-3 hours, sometimes less.

Here are some other random tips:

1. Voodoo Drop packs a punch. It's worth it.
2. I'm a big fan of Rodeo.
3. When you ride Wild One, don't sit on a wheel seat, it will greatly improve your experience.
4. Do the 10-15 minute walk to the back of the park where Batwing is first, and then work your way back.

The only thing better than a naked woman is a naked donkey!

^^-- If staying until close, it can be worth reversing that strategy and marathoning Superman until they make you stop, but then after KD all day you might not even want to, or prefer Wild One. But also northbound traffic through there on Sunday afternoon can be really bad, although the time of year is better. You probably will end up staying until close even if not intended, and may wish you just stayed until close at KD instead. Although it will be different, try doing Google maps for that route this coming Sunday afternoon. Most of the recent times I've gone there it took 2.5 hours there, 1.5 hours back, because I don't take SFA seriously enough to hit the road earlier. Twice I've given up and turned around due to gridlock on I95 and US301.

I ask dumb questions.

Apparently SFA owns all the land seen in this picture (https://www.facebook.com/sfafans/photos/a.393824844853.170862.310053629853/10156115593369854/?type=3&theater).

With that much land why do they continue to remove rides?

Oh you're talking about a coaster and a flat they removed over a decade ago, my bad. :lol:

Also, when did they remove Shipwreck Falls?

^ I didn't mean Shipwreck falls. I meant Typhoon Sea Coaster.
They definitely should remove Shipwreck Falls though. That would be prime real estate for a Raptor.

:lmao: :lmao: Holy sh*t we've gone from "Why do they keep removing rides" when they've got nothing but additions over the past 10 years to "they should remove a ride for a new ride" in less than 3 posts.

Have you that quickly forgotten why we're talking about this? :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: My god.
