Man, what a great day for a Saturday! Weather was alright and there were showers off and on throughout the day.

It was just my cousin and I today and we entered through the side entrance (Famous Daves entrance). It was great because we entered the park around 9:58 so we beat the crowds at the front entrance. First up was going to be MF, but ID had no line whatsoever so we took a quick ride on that. Then next up was MF. Wait was about an hour or so, and waited for the front row. We had about a ten minute delay because the red train hit a seagull and they had to clean that up. We finally got on and it was my best ride on MF yet! Boy what a great ride! The front is just amazing and worth the wait. Next up we went over to Gemini and had a great ride, they were running both sides so the line went by quick. Then we went over to CCMR and took a quick spin on that and then went to Chick-Fil-A for lunch. I got a chicken sandwich, waffle fries, and a water for $10.29. Next up were the water rides. We rode TC twice and SRF twice, and then I bought an $8 cheap towel to dry off. I regret doing that but oh well.

So after the water rides we checked out Mavericks line and that was a definite NO, because the line was overflowing out of the que. So we walked over to Magnum and waited 45 min for a great ride! Some guy sitting behind us said this was his first ride on Magnum in 10 years. He said the ride has definetly changed a lot. So next we walked over to Paddlewheel and took a ride on that, just love that ride, not sure why. Now time to head over to DT, and on our way a man bumps into us and wouldn't you know it, it's John Hildebrandt! It was nice to meet him and we had a nice convo with him. So we waited an hour for DT, pretty much just for the air conditioning. I see they added the music which I like! The ride was pretty much all dark, BUT I noticed one piece of theming lit up, not sure what it was though. The ride seemed faster than usual, or is it just me? Right when we walk out of DT here comes the rain, so we stood under the MaXair games waiting for it to let up. It finally did and it was time for a ride on Raptor. This was probably our longest wait of the day, it was about one and a half hours. Totally worth the wait though. After we stopped and got some Dippin dots and sat down for a little while. Then we had a small dinner. We wanted to sit down at Game Day Grille or Johnny Rockets but both had lines coming out the door. So I just got a corn dog, chips, and a drink at a fast food place. Corn dog looked really funny, but was still good.

So next we took the sky ride over to the train and on our way to the train we see Bill Spehn walking down the WC midway. Didn't talk to him though. We did see a few corporates today but never saw Kinzel. Just my luck. So we rode the train a few times around because here comes the rain AGAIN. Checked out Mavericks line and it was still long as ever so never rode. So since we had done everything in FT we walked over by PT, because my cousin wanted to ride and it seemed to be the only ride running because of the rain. So she rode both sides while I watched.

So it's getting late and we want to end the day on TTD, we waited about an hour and half and had an amazing ride! So we go over and get some pretzels from the pretzel place and end the day on a great note.

-Smoking was out of control today on the midways and in some que lines. On a positive note, many were using the designated areas.

-We spent a lot of money in the park.

-Food was overall pretty good. A lot of people were willing to buy as the food lines were long.

-Park was packed, from Sky ride we could see the the parking lot was totally full.

^^I was close by, so I ended up hitting up CP off and on over the weekend (including today), and it was your typical July CP-wretchedness in terms of busy-ness.

With all that said, you are a confirmed CP fanboy correct??
