Ah, another great day at CP! We got to the park around 9:45 and walked right to Raptor. Everyone was waiting outside the ride, because it wasn't quite 10 yet. There was a big crowd in front of us and behind us too. We waited about a half hour. We had an awesome ride as usual. Next we walked over to Disaster Transport and we saw it doesn't open until 11, so we decided to ride Wicked Twister, the Ferris Wheel, and then Space Spiral. All were good except I never noticed how long of a cycle the Ferris Wheel had. I haven't been on it in ages, but found it kind of boring. The cycle is too long and wanted to get off actually. Oh yeah, and people really like to stick there gum on the posts of the Ferris Wheel. Yuck!

So DT was open and we rode that. We waited about a half hour and I still really like this ride. The air is nice and still pretty fun! Oh, and this big family in line were obnoxious and singing songs as a group really loud. Annoying! Next we took Sky Ride (10 minute wait) towards Iron Dragon. We ate at "Coasters" and had a good meal. I got a kiddie corn dog basket (lol) and a pop for like $10. The fries were SO good.We rode ID and waited about 20 minutes. Then we walked over to Millennium Force and it was an hour and 15 minute wait. We waited and had a great ride. It did seem a little more rough though... Still great though! Then we walked back to Thunder Canyon and rode that. We waited maybe 5 minutes and I didn't get drenched. That's exactly what I wanted too. I just wanted to get a little wet. So then we ride Cedar Creek Mine Ride and wait about 10 minutes. Fun little ride. Next we walk over to Maverick and it was an hour and a half wait. We rode and loved it as usual. By the way too, we got tons of those free cups of water throughout the day. So then we take the train towards Iron Dragon and Wild Cat. We rode the Dodgems and Iron Dragon again and then went to Famous Dave's for dinner at around 5.

We had a great meal at Dave's. I got those ribs and they are just awesome! So then we go back into the park at around 6:30 and walk over to Top Thrill and see it's a 45 minute wait. Cool! So we get in line and right as we are about to get into the train the ride breaks! UGH! Luckily it only took 10 minutes to fix. Great work CP. Awesome ride as usual too. Next we walk over to Magnum and it said a 45 minute wait and it was really only like 30 minutes. This was by far my best ride on Magnum yet! It was SO smooth! Way smoother than usual. That was our last ride of the day and we leave around 8:30 after having an excellent day at CP!

WOW, we were at CP yesterday too. I felt the park was terribly crowded for a Monday. I guess I am just getting spoiled by 20 minute waits or less at most of the parks we have been to this year.

We rode Magnum earlier in the day and had a painfully rough ride. Must have been a different train and or seat then you did. On the flip side, our ride on Millie was great and quite smooth. We were in the next to last row on the red train.

On MF we sat in the blue train in the middle. It wasn't like really rough, it just seemed to be less smooth. Oh well, it was still fun though.

I can't remember what train we were in on Magnum but it was so smooth. I loved it.
