Dominator, it's right there, if I ever go to KD at opening of course I rush to Volcano but that's like one Haunt night a year. Usually don't ride Dominator on the way out because the park is closed by then. The location does tend to eliminate much variation in when I ride it. Biggest variation is when I ride Dominator, eat on dining plan, maybe go up the Eiffel and leave.
For SFA it's usually RoaR followed by Mind Eraser, habit and max. difference combined with late-day shrinking crowds strategy.
We always start our visit at SDC with a ride on Wildfire in the back row, and we end every visit at SDC with a ride on Wildfire, again in the back row. We also ride it at least once every visit in the front row.
For Knott's, I usually head to Xcelerator first since it hardly has a line right at opening. I've had some mornings where I've been able to re-ride it several times without getting off for the first hour of the park opening, especially during the off-season.
For SFMM, I usually run to X2 (yes, I'm one of those) or Twisted Colossus since both lines fill up quickly. YOLOcoaster gets hammered right at opening, so I don't even bother with that ride until later in the day when crowds are more spread out.
For Canobie it's the Yankee Cannonball. I can't remember the last time I made it at opening, but unless they add a big new thrill ride like Untamed or Equinox, it's my first ride.
For Six Flags New England, it's Wicked Cyclone. Doesn't matter if I arrive at opening or during the day,
