We stayed at that Sleep Inn in 2016 and had no issues with it. The location was quite convenient.

I don't have experience with the trolley system or bowling museum, but I did enjoy the Dr. Pepper museum in 2015.

Just got done being stuck at the top of a coaster for the first time. Good old Judge Roy Scream stopped just short of the top. We were 2nd to the first seats. After about 30 min we got to walk down. They had us write our names and phone numbers on a sheet. Anyone know if they do something for people that get stuck? I siggested lifetime flash pass, but they laughed at me

Does anybody know the reason why the park doesn't allow a single rider by themselves in the back car of any of the major roller coaster? I recently moved to this area and bought season passes so I usually go to the park by myself in my spare time. The park was dead today so a lot of the trains were empty but none of the ride ops would let me sit in the back car. I've been to several other parks and have never been told this. Is it a Six Flags thing or is it a specific thing to this park?

I didn't ask any of the ride ops because I didn't want to slow down dispatches and it is not the big of a deal to me. I'm just genuinely curios as to why they would have this policy.

I just swallowed a whole donkey!

Found this from an older post in this thread:

bigboy wrote:It's "no single riders in the last loaded row". They had the policy the entire time I worked at the park in the mid-90s and they also didn't allow single riders on any flat ride (the entire ride, not a particular seat or row). It went away sometime in the early-2000s and came back shortly after the accident on NTAG. It was explained to us when I worked at the park as an insurance requirement that allowed for at least 2 people to have a chance to see every rider on a train in the event that something went wrong.


I've never been to SFOT myself but this is the only park I've heard of that has this policy. Could be wrong though

Why do I still have a donkey title???

^Lagoon has a very similar policy. No single riders in the front or last rows on any of their coasters.
Steel: 160 / Wood: 32 / Total: 192

That's odd! I visited a couple of years ago solo and I swear I must have ridden several of the rides in the back by myself. The only denial I recall from the park was not being able to ride solo on the log ride.

I know quite a lot about Donkeys!

Thinking of doing a relatively last minute trip possibly to SFOT this week. Any idea what it's normally like? Should I expect the park to be jammed with last thrill of the summer park goers before schools start back or is it very light?

Not sure how long its been in effect but could this be fallout from the NTAG incident? I was last there in early 2013 before it happened and I don't remember that being an issue.

I am stupid.

This may be a bit of a stupid question but can you wear slides on NTAG?
