I absolutely adored acrophobia when I was there in June. Surprise favorite of the trip. Really glad it was open when I was there.

So I am planning my 3rd-ever trip to the park in Mid september (on a sunday)... I haven't been there since 2001, so I think they built a ride or two since then. Based on what I was reading, it sounds like we should go to Wicked Cyclone first and then DDD. Any other advice on this? There will be some rides I can't ride, but the wife can. Does anyone know if the train has re-opened? I would hate to miss it.

I have a six flags great adventure gold pass, (Even though I live in Ohio) and I want to renew it, but if I renew, does that mean I have to go back to SFGrAd and renew it, or is it automatic? I ask, because I might just buy a whole new pass during the sale and just process it in Georgia.

That takes me to my next question....

Does SFoG have any passholder perks (early ride times especially)

Also to you locals... any advice on Lake Winnie is appreciated, too... again, it's been since 2001 since I was last there.

This is probably a dumb question but does this park have wifi? And if so is it any good?

And Acro is running, yes?

No WIFI. I have AT&T and the service sucks most of the time.

From what I have read...Acro is not running yet.

I agree I would ride Twisted Cyclone and DDD first.

Yes, the train has reopened.

I would just buy a whole new pass at SFOG as they don't automatically renew.

You're probably too late in the year for Passholder perks, but it's possible they could add something that hasn't been posted yet.

I can't help you with Lake Winnie, sorry.

or still that sad little 2 car thing they were running when I was there last month.

that's not a train..that's a glorified Trolley.

Not a local, but I was just at Lake Winnie this past weekend. Definitely ride the Boat Chute first. I was the first rider of the day and within a half hour, it had a full queue already. I then recommend hitting Wacky Factory next since it had a full queue shortly after opening as well.

Cannon Ball opened 2 hours late due to mechanical difficulties but if you go there third I think you should be able to get a few rides before people get back there. Also do not miss Conestoga or OH-Zone. Both are insane.

SFOG opened Twisted Cyclone a half hour before the posted opening. I was on the first train. If you don't get a Flash Pass, I'd say run over to Dare Devil Dive after since it quickly built up a big wait.

I don't usually ride the train but if I remember correctly it had at least 4 or 5 cars the last time I saw it running.

Answering questions from above as a local...

Acrophobia is still down for the count as of Sunday. The Six Flags Railroad is running though. I believe there are 3 cars attached to the engine (if not two - cant remember as its been a couple of weeks since I've been out there).

Visiting on a Sunday should do you a favor as the crowds are normally light but definitely hit Twisted Cyclone, Dare Devil Dive, and then Superman as those rides usually get the longest lines.

Other than that, you should be fine and no Flash Pass should be needed to enjoy your day at the park.

Plan first visit in over 2 decades this Sunday. Maybe Monday too.

Any other noteworthy closures?
