I understand. Hershey's shakes looked very appealing, but then also beer. :lol:

My general feeling is that this park tends to be dead. If I were to stop in a week from Sunday, will anything have a long wait? I was thinking the two I need to hit early are Batwing (slow loading) and Ragin Cajun.

Lol I was there this past Sunday and I don't think I waited longer than 5 minutes for anything. And that's even pushing it.

^ Sounds like how my lone visit was in 2012. Except that visit was on a weekday so I wanted to check.

I'm just hoping Superman is actually open this time.

When's the cheapest time to buy a season pass that includes parking for 1 person?

I seem to recall last year, they said the August/September time frame that that would be the cheapest time to buy a season pass?

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

While we wait for something interesting to happen regarding SFA, here's a question we could debate for a few posts:

What's the best seat/best way to ride each of the rides at SFA (and "don't" is not an acceptable answer :lol:)

I'm asking this 50% because I want to know, and 50% because I want some more activity on this thread :p

Well . . . . for Superman: Ride of Steel . . . . you get a more forceful ride in the back row, while you get a better view in the front row.

Batwing . . . . well, keep your eyes closed on the lift hill unless you want to stare into the sun.

Wild One & Roar . . . . front or back row. And from what has been said here . . . on coasters with PTC trains, avoid a wheel seat.

Mind Eraser . . . keep your head back.

Aocalypse . . . . keep your head back . . and wear a jockstrap :D

Does anyone else think that the Gotham Arena is going to be torn down in the years to come. It's been years since they've hosted anything of substance there. There's also another venue in the front of the park which could easily host any cheer events or anything along the lines of that.

Who knows . . . maybe they'll do the awakening there again for Fright Fest this year. I know in years past they had a BMX show (and back in the 90's, they had a Batman stunt show).

If it does get torn down, what goes in it's place?
