"There's a surprise in every wrapper!" - my observation of the increasingly grotesque condition of the ice cream bars (though we managed to dig up good ones!). The purple tasted great BTW.

I wasn't exactly lurching LOL. I'll echo my brother's words. It was a fantastic opportunity to be at my home park before the sun came up and the gate flew open! After 13 total rides on the Flyer I found elgaE to be the perfect solution for those eyeballs that were sucked into the rear quadrant of my skull!

I was pleased to meet those who were brave enough to approach two guys wearing Arrow gear lol.....thanks to everyone for a great event, and I'm counting down 'til BeastBuzz! The Frequent Flyers shall return.....MU HA HA HA HAAA.

Steph,

Just curious...when was RBs line 1.5hrs? When we ran 3 trains that day the line was no longer than 40-45mins. If the line was truly 1.5hrs it woulda been a completely full queue and stretched out on the midway over to Viper. Just wondering...glad you had fun!

The wait may have been shorter, but I was just going by what a 'Buzz companion (who had been there before) told me it would be. The queue was completely full and spilling out onto the midway. The wait appeared to be longer than 30 minutes, which was verified by some folks in the station.

In all fairness, the crew was really cranking peeps through - no stacking and very efficient! :) I just had limited time to stay at the park and tried to "get it all in."

Raven-Phile's avatar Yeah, it had spilled out on to the midway quite a ways down at that point. On average, people were saying that line was around an hour or so. Still, nothing compares to 5 minutes for the back - even though it DID try to kill me. lol

joe.'s avatar The lime green Weezer shirt? That was my cousin. He doesn't post on here, but I'll let him know. :)

When the RB line was spilling onto the midway, part of the queue wasn't open. Once they opened it, no mroe midway spillage. I waited about an hour for RB, but that was 2 train operation plus the time for the 3rd train transfer and a wait for the front car.

Viper,

The key in your post is "When we ran 3 trains..." When I was waiting, I did wait 1.5 hours because during that time you guys finally added the third train which, until it started running with passengers, slowed the line down.

I can never understand why you guys don't run 3 trains from opening when it's a great weather day AND a Saturday. Simple common sense will tell you that the park will be full.

stoogemanmoe's avatar Aw Man! sounds like everyone had a blast! I couldn't be there because I had to work. But, I took my finish side test for Lenscrafters and passed and FINALLY got a raise. Next is lensometer certification, and final inspection certification. But, I'm really glad everyone had a blast!

I dont know the answer to that Redman, its not my call. Sometimes staffing comes into play...or they were working on the other train.

Raven-Phile's avatar From what I heard, the teal train's nylon wore down on the chain dogs, and it was REALLY loud on the lift. I can see them pulling a train off for that - makes sense, as I saw mechanics working on the chassis of the train.
