Can anyone with kids give me a little walk through of rides to hit or avoid for the kids and maybe provide a plan of attack to get to all the rides.
Also, is there in and out privileges in the case that we would want to bring a cooler for a picnic (they used to have picnic areas outside the park, are those still there?)
Any tips or guidance would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advanced,
Can't really help in terms of the walk-through or whether they have a picnic area. I only visited the park once, in '07.
But all Six Flags parks will allow your family to have their hand stamped, leave the park, and re-enter after eating. Not an issue.
Have a great time! It's a nice park, although I only did the coasters and the beautiful double-deck carousel.
As for rides, what does your kids like? Are they big thrill seekers or like more "flat rides"?
One great tip for SFGA is if you want to go to Hurricane Harbor, go right when it opens at 11pm (EDIT AM). It is actually not that crowded.
As for food, you can bring food and leave it in a cooler and leave and come back (just get your hand stamped). However, the Papa John's Family deal is not too bad of a price. They also have meal deals online that saves some money too!
As for rides in my opinion (based upon age and height) are:

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!
Still, the heights and tastes of your kids would be helpful since certain rides have higher height requirements (higher on a few than you think)
Midnight rides on water slides? I'm there, baby!
j/k..I know what you meant, Anthony. But I STILL like the idea...
We wound up eating in the park and the prices really were not too bad at all.
We hit the park early and just did two full circles (starting to the left) and wound up with short lines and no problems getting on rides quick. We finished our first circle at 2:30 and grabbed a late lunch then did a quicker circle picking up the flats we missed and getting second rides on the coasters we wanted to try.
The girls loved the flats and also tried American Eagle, Whizzer, Demon and all the water coasters.
All in all, great visit!
Thanks again for the help.
