At SFOG, the ideal situation for me is for them to open Georgia Scorcher and Georgia Cyclone when they open the gates, and get both in before they drop the rope, after which I'll head to Goliath first then double back to Mindbender and Batman before continuing around the park clockwise.
At Dorney, it's almost always Talon. Sometimes I'll do a "back of the park" day and start with Possessed then run loops between Cedar Creek Flyers, Steel Force, Demon Drop, then back to Possessed.
Knoebels, it's /always/ the flyers. Pick up a wristband, then head right over to the Flyers and camp on those for the first 30 minutes.
Great Adventure, is always Toro until it's no longer a walk on.
Hershey is usually "head straight for skyrush and lap it as many times as my thighs can handle"

I'll just say it for all 6 of my parks I consider home. I just moved from GA where Carowinds, Dollywood, and SFOG were my home parks to PA (where I grew up) so now Dorney, SFGADV, and Hershey are my home parks again.
Dollywood, Lightning Rod if it's running without fail. If not then Thunderhead.
Carowinds, Fury 325. No questions. Doesn't matter if its the busiest day of the year or totally dead. I need some Giga goodness.
SFOG really depends. This year I bounced around between Blue Hawk first or Goliath first. I did DDD one day just to check out the VR and have not ridden it since. If I wanna switch it up I'll hit Acrophobia first.
Dorney Park, Possessed usually is first just because its my favorite coaster there. The park never has any lines so I'm comfortable bouncing around.
Hershey, Skyrush or Great Bear. Every time I go both get a pretty serious line if it's summer time. From there I hit Farenheit and then bounce around for the rest of the day.
SFGADV, I usually hit Nitro first and then go all the way across the park for Bizarro and El Toro and work my way back.

My method exactly except if DDD is open I will hit it once first before Goliath.
Using the method you described, you can basically ride every coaster with no line even on days that end up being very busy.
That depends. I usually go for Untamed first in the single-rider line, but if it's early enough in the day and Yankee Cannonball doesn't have a crowd yet, I'll go for that, as I did in my visit early in this past summer.
Half of my posts on here are of me talking about roller coasters, but without me actually having rode them. I hate this.
