This is the usual advice thread. I'm headed there on Saturday for the first time. I'm the type that just goes from coaster to coaster all day long, rarely stop for flat rides, food, shows, bathroom breaks, anything. My one buddy who's going with me is that way too, but my cousins who will be joining us aren't. Neither have been there without their mom before (who is scared to ride anything and tells her kids they will die if they get on a ride) so they probably won't be much help. Can the park be "done" easily in one Saturday? Will we get re-rides on Kumba and Montu? What are some good flats or shows to hit when my cousins tire of our coaster-marathon attitude? Thanks for your help.

The coasters should be easy to knock out in a day, no problem. I just hope you stop to look around a little because it is a cool park. I was there for about four hours in November and regret not spending more time there to do the train, Rhino Rally and other stuff. I did stop to look at the white tigers, which are some of the most beautiful animals I've ever seen.

One word - Lorikeets. If you hit any non-coaster attraction in this park it has to be the lorikeets. You go into this exhibit with some nectar that the birds can eat and they come up and perch on your arm and eat the nectar. I had a couple on my shoulders too while I was in there. It is a really cool experience.

You should be able to get rerides on Montu as this thing really pumps through the peeps. If it is busy you may have problems getting rerides on Gwazi and Scorpion.

This park is more than just coasters though and you really cannot appreciate it without taking in all the animal exhibits and many other activities that they have to offer.

Alright, sounds good - white tigers? I remember being obcessed with those when I was a kid. Wow this will be a different experience ... a park that won't just be a coaster-thon! (other than Kennywood that is ... )

Look at the Phoenix flat ride, Edge of Africa, Akbar(if you like simulators), Myombe Reserve, train, skyway, Lorikeets, Nursery Orangatans, and the area by the Koalas. Rhino Rally only if the line is short since its a bad ride. And yes, you will get all that and the coasters with re-rides done in one day. Go to Gwazi first though as the lines may get long later in the day.

This is of interest to me as well, as I am going to be heading there mid October. I was concerned that I wouldn't have time for multiple rerides on the coasters plus take in some of the animal attractions. I hear that the park isn't as crowded during September and October. Can anyone verify this for me. Also, I'm looking at hitting the Howl-O-Scream. Do they run the coasters at night during this? How cool are they at night?
