Sunday was even better as far as crowds were concerned. There was no one in the park for ERT. Two front seat Raptor rides, MaXair, front seat AND back seat on MF all before 10. I was very happy. The longest wait of the day was about 20 minutes for front seat on Dragster then rode again in back after only a 5 minute wait. The rest of the day we just strolled around and walked on everything else we wanted to ride, went through all the haunted houses, and wound up leaving around 4. We had planned on staying until close, but we didn't need to. We had done it all and could get a big head start on the long drive home. It was just a perfect weekend.
Two "odd" things I noticed this weekend were: Ride ops on MF were seriously assisting larger people with the seatbelts more than I have ever seen. They were going out of their way to get everyone possible a ride. They didn't seem concerned about seeing "the inch" of black on the belts either. As long as the buckle fastened, you were good to ride. In the past I've noticed this not to be the case at all. In fact, I thought park policy was that the ops could NOT assist in any way in fastening the belt. I know the whole MF belt thing has been a huge gripe for a lot of people. Perhaps this extra help provided by the ops is the park responding to that. Who knows. Anyway, it was nice to see the ops going the extra mile to get as many folks a ride as they could. The second "odd" thing I noticed was while driving along Perimeter Road toward Lighthouse Point, a fox strolled across the road heading over to the bay. I don't think I've ever even seen a squirrel at the point. I was not expecting to see a fox. I was however expecting to see at least one cotton candy cart somewhere, but sadly no. I know, I know, you can still get it in a few places. But it's so much better freshly made at the carts.
What a great trip. Thanks CP! *** Edited 9/27/2006 10:27:06 AM UTC by CPMagNut***
IMO, FrightFest weekends are the best for CP. We go every year, and seldom wait for anything longer than 20 mins. Maggie's usually a walk-on along with most of the coasters.
