How busy does this park get in the summer? I'll be there on August 2 (a Thursday) and wondering if I should plan on a flash pass. We'll also be visiting CGA and I'm planning on getting FL for that park. At SFDK I mostly just care about The Joker and Superman as I've never ridden one of those Sky Rockets before. Is Medusa still good? I might try the new Crazy Coaster but going backwards on rides usually makes me sick so I'm not sure about it.

Any tips for a first timer at the park? I have an old Six Flags gold membership from last year, not sure if I still get free parking so I'll have to look that up.

Quoting this because I pretty much have the same questions! Although I'll be there on Monday July 23.

Also, is Vertical Velocity open? Any chance it will be open late next month? I'm not holding my breath since I know that thing is down all the time, but I'd like to ride it when I'm there.

Since it's your first time at the park, getting a Flash Pass is not a bad idea at all. You can wait until you get to the park to decide, if you'd like. There aren't many coasters, but because of that, on hot busy days they can accumulate decent lines. The good thing about SFDK is that there are other non-ride things to do during the busiest times (midday, mostly) that you definitely shouldn't miss. As a local, oftentimes I would kill time midday by going to see the shows and look at the animals while I waited for the majority of guests to leave the park. Since you aren't locals, I'd say opt for the Flash Pass.

Also, V2 and Medusa are definitely worth doing. I've been on a fair amount of floorless coasters and Medusa is still my favorite.

^ Thanks for the info! I'll wait until we get to the park but it sounds like I should plan on getting a Flash Pass.

I'll definitely make sure to hit Medusa, not sure about V2 as I don't think Wicked Twister is all that great. But that's the only Intamin Impulse I've ridden. I tried to ride Steel Venom once at Geauga Lake but it only launched about 10 feet and then stopped, and was down for the day.

I tried upgrading my season pass to a membership. What a nightmare. In classic Six Flags fashion, it didn't work. Of course, I didn't expect it to at all, but thought hey, why not. The issue was with the upgrade portal. You have to use the portal to upgrade and pay for the new membership, then you go back in and put your season pass info in. That's where it stopped working. Of course, the instructions they give you haven't been updated with the correct wording. They said to go to "Finish Upgrade," but that wasn't anywhere. I could figure out where to go, but when I inputed my info it said it didn't find my info. I had to put my pass number, last name, and date of purchase. I had my actual card so I know that wasn't wrong, I know my last name, and I have the email confirmation of when I bought it, and nothing worked. I tried with my upgrade, my son's, and my wife's. Not one of ours worked. So, I got the joy of playing how many clicks does it take to get to the customer service email form. I'm going to the park this weekend, so hopefully they'll have it done by them, but I'm not holding my breath. It's amazing, but sadly not unexpected, how terrible they are. Rant over. ;) Have a Six Flags day!

^That doesn't suprise me in the slightest. Not only because Six Flags, but because I've also had issues with that site. I'm still waiting on an email from them that I was specifically told to expect.
