I visited yesterday, 04/25, and I agree with the statements about the park's atmosphere. I know that the company took a hit, so there might not be a big budget for improvements; however, it was sad walking around the park seeing the shape it is in. On the bright side, I was able to enjoy many rides with my wife throughout the day. The operations were exceptional, given it was opening weekend. Especially the Raging Bull crew, they were efficient all afternoon. Good to be back.
Been to may theme parks, in many countries. However, SFGAm is my home park and I love it!

It depends on the coaster...at least it did when I was there on Saturday, May 1st.

For example, any ride with 4 across seating is seating every row as is X-Flight. The rest from what I could tell are not seating every row, but it varies with each coaster. For example, I believe Whizzer is seating one group per car, Viper and American Eagle allow for 4 people in each car, but since there is no grouper at these rides, you can sit next to anyone as long as the seats are not roped off. Maxx Force is only seating one row per car. I'm not sure about Goliath, Little Dipper, and V2 as I did not ride those, but it did appear as if there were empty rows when I walked by Goliath and Little Dipper.

I would not be surprised if most, if not all, coasters will operate without restrictions in the near future as IDPH and Six Flags begin to loosen restrictions to fall more in line with the CDC for outdoor activities.

How many months are they counting as closed months that will be added for members?
