Just got back from my 4 our drive.. took a day trip 1030am-700pm

TTD 2 times with and hour and a half wait and a 2 hour wait (front seat wth 40 minute break down right after i got in line)Back seat was a huge improvement over the middle which i rode last year and the front seat is just out of this world by far the best ride ive had ever.

MF once. SLOW DISPATCH TIMES, it was rediculous... it was to a spot that last year and years before would be a 45 minute wait but the sign posted an hour and a half... it was really 2 hours i think and the dispatch times were terrible.

Raptor- 20 minute wait great as always

Demon Drop- walk on great ride

WT- 2 times.. one near front one near back.. .like the back a lot better

Magnum... walk on... I love this ride but PLEASE do something about the restraints they kill my legs, imagine it with MF restraints...

Sounds like a great trip but there was one big flaw that leaves me bitter. The food places were HORRIBLY SLOW. I waited 15 minutes behind ONE person to try to order food and theirs still hadnt came so we left then we had to wait 15 minutes to get food somewhere else and they werent the nicest about it. Also i was disappointed in the MF crew..

Id like to give my hats off to the TTD crew they had it running well today.. Rolled back first time in line for a 5 minute delay but you got to expect that and the next time within 5 minutes there were 4 mechanics working on it... They had great loading times too

overall a great day

I think the seat belt thing has really slowed MF down. It is better than it was at the beginning of the year, but there are still a lot of people who wait in line and then don't fit. The ops try to help them fit and then have to unlock the train to let the person out and then recheck. It used to be about 45 min. wait from the pop machines, now it's over an hour.

Glad TTD was running well, Monday it was up and down all day. Did they get the launch timed with the lights and the sound or were they still way off? Monday there was a 1-2 second delay between the green light & sound effects and the actual launch.

Yea, when I was at CP the dispatch times for MF were terrible. At least one out of every 3 trains they run, There is on person that could not fit and they try way to hard to make them fit. This one guy was like "I'm riding this ride" and the ride Opp tried to get him in the seat but the guy couldn't fit and then he started yelling at the Opp because it was hurting him. but what ever. I think everyone should just try the tester seat before they ride the ride. It makes everything safer and easier.

Or realize that there was never a real problem in the first place and stop going with a knee-jerk reaction ...

Good info that it's an hour from the pop machines now, thanks for that tip and decent TR.

Yeah my wait was just past the pop machines... One guy seemed to be 30 seconds behind all other operaters on every train dispatch

As far as TTD timing, it seemed to go pretty well with the christmas tree lighting.And their song they playy before they move the trains to go to the launching pad was pretty much in sequence with dispatching the trains. So I have to give it up to that ride crew.
