Looking for some pro tips.


So you went to Hattie B's or Prince's? Go to Bolton's or Pepperfire in East Nashville. Both are as good as any other hot chicken in town and you won't have to wait very long.

I had a turkey leg somewhere in the park last year. It was good. And a salad from somewhere else.We have the dining plan so we try to make sure we make use of it.

Not a SFGAdv pro here, but Superman and Green Lantern were one and done for me. Probably would not ride either again if I went back. I highly recommend Safari Adventure and we normally only do coasters. We were there on an overcast Wednesday in August and the park was pretty dead.YMMV, but from what I read before our trip, crowds are hard to predict at this park.

In all seriousness, Rayj, you'll have to provide more detail as to what you like / don't like and what your musts are. Without that, some standards:

- Get Flash Pass
- El Toro in the morning (same goes with Kingda Ka if it's running)
- Safari right after riding El Toro
- If you're interested in Green Lantern, just punch yourself in the head a few times and walk away. Same experience without wasting time in line.
- Earn the "Coasterbill Trifecta" Badge by riding Sky Ride, Log Flume, and Skull Mountain (but only in the back row)

^ I used to hate Green Lantern, but I found a way to enjoy it (as well as any B&M stand-up). Bend your knees and pull the OSTR down so it is firmly on the top of your shoulders. The goal is to get your head above the OSTR so you don't get headbanging. Plus the bike seat should be well below your crotch in this position.

I won’t be getting a fast pass, but I will be staying all day Saturday and half a day on Sunday. I’m looking forward to doing the major coasters and Wonder Woman. I will do KK first and el toro second. Is superman even worth it? Lol.

You won't be getting a Flash Pass. On a Saturday. In late July.

Cool. Have fun.

I mean, its going to depend on weather but I just don't understand how anyone is willing to travel to park other than their local and NOT budget for a fast pass. Its just insane to me. Especially a weekend, in the middle of the summer season. A couple extra dollars will make the difference between spending hours in line or riding a ton of rides. A gold flash pass will cost you like... $75? If you put aside $20 a week until your trip you'll be able to have a much better time. Just saying.
