I am not the worlds greatest trip report writers, so bear with me.
Got to the park around 10 am and was supprised to see the VERY long lines waiting to go thrue the security check point. As seen here.
The main street section of this park has a mountain instead of a tower like the other former paramount parks have.
First stop...The fly.
The fly is a mouse coaster with an interesting layout. It has some good drops unlike the other mouse coasters I have been on.
Hit the ghoster coaster next. It's your typical jr woody that is a cookie cutter found at the other former paromount parks.
Next up...shock wave.
This is a very uniqe flat ride that I have never been on before. Why can't more parks have one of these? This is by far one of the best flat rides I have ever been on. It was built by a company named mondial(never heard of them).
Next up...dragon fire.
This is your typical arrow looper, but it is the smoothest arrow I have ever been on. Fun ride, went on it a few time durring the trip.
Another very uniqe flat ride.It was basicly a huss enterprise, but instead of sitting...you are standing. Very fun ride that you do not see anywhere.
Here is a picture of the cage you stand inside of.
Next up...scooby doo dark ride.
Nothing special here...just your typical sally shooter dark ride. The thrueput of this ride was horrid. We were in line for an hour to ride this thing. The line moved very slow, and my gun did not work.
Had to make a bathroom stop, and saw a out of the ordinary soap dispencer on the wall.....you be the judge.
Next up....silver streak.
This is a (vekoma?) suspended coaster just like the one at kings island.
Not a very original name, but one of the best coasters in the park. This is a arrow suspended coaster that ranks right up there with big bad wolf. The rides lift hill goes up to the top of the mountain and drops down the other side of it. This coaster has lots of speed and some really good turns before you SLAM into the brakes at the end. They also video tape you on this coaster as well.
The have a buffet just like the midway market at cedar point, only it is very expencive here. $19 to eat, but we got 20 % off for holdind a season pass.
After lunch we hit the ice show. It was almost a copy of the show at cedarpoint, except they had yogi bear instead of snoopy.
We were now off to the wild beast coaster.
This was a horrid coaster. It was very ruff and had a boring layout.
Wanted to hit the bat next.
Got into the coaster train and was almost ready to be dispatched untill the ride went down due to "technical" problems. After the evacuation of the ride, we found out that the reason they kicked us off the ride was because a q line rail had broken. I could not understand why they evacuated the ride for a broken rail in the line? It had nothing to do with the low zones of the ride. We waited about a half hour untill they fixed the rail and were finnaly able to ride. It was a typicay boomerang coaster that we rode just for the credit.
This is a typical togo stand up coaster just like the one at kings dominium and kings island. It was a ok ride, with bad ride operations.
Next up...Italian job.
This is a typical IJ ride that is found at most paramount parks. The ride was the same as the others, except none of the effects worked besides the fire.
We did see some footer work in line for IJ for the new coaster next year.
Next up..Tomb raider.
This is the most uniqe coaster in the park, as it has a spiral lift hill that has a paddle spinning in the middle that catches the car and pushes it up the lift. It was a ruff coaster but it was ok.
Next up...Top gun.
This was a typical slc by vecoma. The ride was ok....just like the many others I have been on. But just ok.
Next up...Thunder run.
Interesting coaster that has electric rails and is not run by gravity. The mine train coaster weaves in and out of the mountain as you pass by a dragon inside.
Next up....The mindbuster.
I had heard a lot of bad things about this coaster, but was supprised that it had some decent pops of air and was for the most part smooth. It had a cool helix in a tunnel at the end.
We hit some flats after the mindbuster.
The huss jump was an amazing ride to watch, but was rather lackluster to ride.
They also have a good selection of flats at this park as seen here...
An interestin top spin by mondial that leaves it's rides soaked.
A ride like maxair(not sure of technical name).
A giant inverted space shuttle.
All in all had a good few days at the park. The only major gripes that I had was the slow ride crews and the fact that they check your hand stamp at almost every ride*(why is that?) Also, it just seems that the coasters at this park were cookie cutters from other parks.I also think they need to look into getting a bigger sign for the entrace to to park. It was very small as seen here.
Hope you enjoyed my trip report, here are some more general park photos I took.
A ride like maxair(not sure of technical name).
Great trip report and the ride is called Psyclone.

The park is truly spectacular... although sometimes it feels like the park is located in Asia with the diverse ethnicities of guests & workers there. The lines always seem to be horrid and long, even for the littlest ride.
What was the longest line in the park for?
Sorry about that, I totaly forgot about this ride.
This ride was huge for a huss enterprise. I did however notice that huss was not alone in the manufacture of this ride. A company by the name of "GMBH" had there hand in it. I never knew that huss worked with another company.
Anybody know the story behind who "gmbh" is, and what else they worked on?
