New Traffic Directions at SFOG

Post by Robert Ulri » Sat, 03 Apr 1999 04:00:00


Yesterday SFOG closed several of the roads to the west of the park.
The roads that are now permanently closed include:
1) the road between the Georgia Cyclone & the new parking lot
2) the road behind the new parking lot & Sam's

When coming from the West it's important to note that the signage
hasn't been changed and still directs people to road #2 - this is now
an incorrect route.

Drivers from the west should take the very first left turn permitted
after exiting onto Six Flags Drive.  (This is the turn in front of the
Wendy's.)

The administration office, employee lots, etc. are all now accessible
only from a road much farther down than #2 - and yesterday a security
officer was there to advise people that it was no longer a through
street.

On days that the park is open, the road block on road #2 is moved back
to permit entry into the new parking lot, but no farther than that.  So
the sign isn't extremely incorrect, but it is true that you cannot get
to the old parking lot this way.

Would this also be the same road that leads to the entrance to Sam's, and the
Days Inn and Sleep Inn?  If so, this is the "alternate route" I have been
taking for years anyway.  I always new it was the better way to go. :-)

Personally, I liked being able to take a right turn into the parking lot
from alongside Cyclone.  But I'm sure I can manage.  Now if only someone
will confirm/deny Scorcher's early opening ...  :)
