I'm technically there on business that week. I have meetings until Friday at 4pm, we are going to Dollywood on Saturday and SFOG on Sunday. Our flight leaves at 4pm Sunday so that only gives us from 10am to 2pm at SFOG on Sunday.

Unless the weather sucks and we end up not going to Dollywood (which would REALLY suck) then we would probably just go to SFOG or even Wild Adventures on Saturday.

There is a chance we can make it for the last few hours of SFOG on Saturday since they are open until 10pm, but it depends on how busy Dollywood is. We don't want to have to rush it there. Plus we need to get our kiddie credit in Pigeon Forge. :P If we did Wild Adventures on Saturday I don't think it would be an issue getting back to SFOG by 8pm on Saturday night to get some rides in.

I was hoping to go to SFOG on Friday night but it's closed for a private party. Too bad it's not my company (we have an office out there) and I could get tickets. :(

I called SFOG to see if Mindbender would be open this weekend and the operator said that all the rides would be open! That means Deja'Vu! YAY!!!!!1!oneone!one111!

Wow! Great pics guys! (everyone that pretty much uploaded them).

I thought I was going to get to go to SFoG next weekend with some friends and hit Wild Adventures in the same trip, unfortinutely I cant find anyone to go so maybe I'll have to make the trip another time (I took this same trip last year, it was amazing fun).

Its interesting in some of the shots of the rides, I saw new restraints? Is it only me that notices it? Acrophobia now has purple, Batman and Scorcher have black, maybe they just painted them or maybe their new, but I thought I remembered Batman having yellow, Acry having yellow, and Scorcher yellow.

Yep, you're right, they have all new harnesses this year on those three attractions.

For those who rode Batman - was it running as insane as it was last year? I don't know what they did last year but it was by far the best Batman rides I've ever had on SFoG's version. My friends said it wasn't running as well but I wanted to hear what others thought.

And woohoo to Acro spinning again. I missed that.

Batman was pretty intense. The back wasn't as smooth, and had alot of shaking. It was a great ride in the front though, with lots of forces.
