What are the crowds usually like this time of the year? I'll be heading there on Tuesday March 2nd. Also it has been a few years since I've been to BGA & I don't remember if there are single rider lines or not (I'll be going alone)?

No single riders queue :(
But It shouldn't be that busy. The weekdays are pretty slow, you will get everything done

^ Dang it! I was relying on using those for my trip since I'll be the only one on the big coasters. :(

Does Busch Gardens let you pick your seat or are you assigned?

You get to pick wherever you want to ride.
If scorpion has a big line, you will get assigned, But if it is not busy you can pick wherever. Or if there is a big line and you want a certain seat (front or back) just ask the op they MAY let you wait for the next coaster to get on that seat.

But I am pretty sure it wont busy

Thanks yeah I thought that BGA didn't have single rider lines. Oh well 2005 was the last time I was there I remember because it was Sheikra's opening year so I still have not ridden that floor less but I rode Griffon so I have an idea on what it is like with no floor. Just checked the weather & there is an 80% chance of rain for most of the day which should make the park even more empty.

It would be busier than normal but not too crowded.

Yay! Now Gwazi will surely be good for everyone. This is very exciting news. It gives me a really good reason to try to get back to the park soon.
Just keep swimming...

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

Any chance they update the worst SOP ever in checking every seat belt before locking the lap bars?
