From my experience last year around that time on a Tuesday, it was the slowest I’ve seen it. I’ll be going this week and I’ll try to report back to you on the crowds.

There's a pirate themed dark ride opening this year (Scooby Doo retheme).

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Which day are you going? You should be fine, especially if you can go during the week. The weekend right before school starts was very busy last year but I think there are still a few weeks before.

Can I park my donkey here?

Went yesterday and the park was not bad but more busy than some of the days I've been this summer... Do not go on a Saturday... I repeat... Do not go on a Saturday

Mondays all summer have been BAFF, avoid Mondays. Saturdays have your typical weekend crowds.

To maximize fun, go on any day that's not Monday or Saturday.

I was wondering about crowds as well. I'm taking my fiance on a trip to Texas for her birthday and we're going to do SFFT for a day. I'm planning on the Wednesday the week following schools going back. Should I still anticipate purchasing the Flash Pass? I have never used one before and am not entirely clear on the different levels (gold, platinum, etc.). I'm so excited to take her since neither of us have ever been to the park before! I'm sure it goes without saying that we should be also bring a bathing suit, too? ;)

If it's a Wednesday and there's no BAFF, then don't worry about Flash Pass unless you get there and it's slammed for some reason. It'll be dead enough to do whatever, unless you want to marathon Wonder Woman. The waterpark is quite fun and there's a good amount of things to do there, so if you like water parks then that's definitely something to check out.

Thanks for the tip! By the way, it took me a little too long to figure out what BAFF stood for :lmao: I double checked and it shouldn’t be going on during my visit. I’m so stoked to check out Iron Rattler, Wonder Woman, and Batman!

If you're in the area and want to check out another fun place, ZDT's is an hour away from SFFT and their "last 3 hours" unlimited wristband is only $15. Switchback is a seriously solid coaster, the go karts are pretty fun, and generally the whole little place is a really fun way to kill a few hours. (Last 3 hours arcade is probably one of the best deals I've ever seen on any arcade ever)

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I should also mention that if going late in the day doesn't fit your schedule, they gladly sold us $5 tickets just to ride Switchback even though that wasn't advertised on their website. Your mileage may vary on that though.

Is Wonder Woman off of single use now? When we were there in June you could only reserve it one time on all levels with a Flash Pass.
