I was originally going to go into the waterpark, but after seeing how packed it was, I decided not to. Only having 4 waterslides didn't help either.
I should mention that the park is doing a great job in the landscaping department. Flowers are everywhere. I guess they are trying to make up for the lack of shade. The park could improve by adding more trees, but, considering it was built in a field (don't quote me on that), i guess theres nothing to complain about.
Predator- They finally took out the extra line rails by the pizza place. As for the ride, lets just say if it doesn't improve in the next 5 years, its demise isn't far off. If you're gonna ride, front seat is the way to go. For those who complained that the added seatbelts are making the loading times terrible, I don't know what you are talking about. The ride ops don't even bother checking them.
Mind Eraser, Boomerang, Viper, and Predator just aren't what they used to be. Not because the rides have gone downhill, but because of that giant red and blue thing in the front of the park that only gets better evertime I ride it. Yeah, thats right. Superman:ROS. The third hill in particular is as close to euphoria as I have ever been. Maybe when I have a wife and kids i'll change my views on this, but for now, for me, this ride is the greatest feeling on earth. Amazing.
The park really comes to life at night. You forget all about not having any shade. Walking around with all the sights, sounds, snd smells was a great way to end the day, having just been on one of the last runs on Superman.
On a side note, I entered the park all uptight because of the uncertainty of the lines and whether or not the rides would be running(Superman was running empty trains when I got their at 2:00). My first ride on S:ROS wasn't too great because of my wanting to ride it so bad. Hell, I began to wonder why I was an enthusiast. I wasn't having fun. But, as the day went on, I relaxed a little, and ended up having better experiences on the rides, and an overall great day. Just try to relax, and don't expect too much.
Thanks for reading.

When I got there, they were only running one, but they put the second one on later in the day. With two trains, I never waited more than 15 Minutes. It was great.
