Maybe they’ll send YOLOcoaster from SFMM and Maxx Force to SFA and duct tape the two coasters together, call it Racing Coaster 1, and build bathrooms themed to it!

I’d be cool with that.

Well that would be nice if it did 2 laps, but it would never happen.

It would happen if Twix would sponsor it.

Hello all,

It's time for me to ask the questions everyone loves... I'm going to be going to the Summerfest music festival in Milwaukee this holiday weekend and wanted to get the opinions of some SFGAm regulars!

The typical stuff: I was planning on going on the 4th as I figured it may be less busy and there's not anyone I specifically want to see at the festival that day. The possibilities would be the 4th, 6th, or 7th. I guess part of the day on the 5th is a possibility too, but would prefer not to go that day unless you guys think it will be the best day to go.

What rides should I hit early to avoid lines? Any favorite or least favorite seat recommendations would be welcome as well.

I think it's been like 20 years since I've been to this park, so I'm excited to say the least. Raging Bull was the new hotness last time I was here, so I'm excited to check all the new stuff out!

Thanks in advance for any guidance you guys can provide!

Dave

For what it's worth, I've visited the park on July 5th the past 3 seasons straight and crowds have been fairly light each time. (Probably due to everyone requesting off the day before). I've heard mixed reports that the 4th of July is either extremely crowded or really dead, but I've never been on that date myself so can't comment. The 6th and 7th are on the weekend and seem to have the better forecasts as of now, so keep that in mind

Maxx Force is opening on July 4th so if you want to ride it and not wait 4 hours I'd recommend getting to the park before opening and running to it as soon as you get in the park. You will probably encounter some less than desirable enthusiasts, just be aware :lol: This is assuming you aren't getting a flash pass of course, which I believe you can get one ride on Maxx with a platinum level pass. They're closing the line at 8PM for the member preview on the 3rd so don't be surprised if they do the same on the official opening.

Going on the first few days of Maxx Force's opening might actually work in your favor. I went to the park the day after Goliath opened and all other rides had significantly shorter lines than usual so maybe the same thing will happen here?

As for seat recommendations, ride Demon in the back car. The first drop is surprisingly great back there

^ Yep the line for Maxx Force will be closing off at 8pm on July 4th also.
