Well first off we spent 2 hours getting our season passes. Then we walked toward the Wild Mouse and it was down. Next we went to Hercules. It was still rough but I don't think it was as bad as last year. I think it would be better if the replaced the seat with soft padding instead of the hard foam headrests. Next we stopped at Camp Snoopy borrowed two kids and rode the Woodstock Express. Then we went for the Thunderhawk we rode in the first car third row. Even with the two trim brake you still get air on the tops of the hills and the bunny hops. Our next stop was Steel Force. Steel Force is great still the beast ride in the park. After Steel Force we went to the Skyscraper. We paid or $40 bucks to ride. All I can say is its nuts. Only being held in by a harness on the seat! It kind of reminded me of a super fast and tall Zipper. This is a must do ride at least once. We were the 5th and 6th to ride it. We went back to the Mouse but was down again. We ate at the restaraunt between the Mouse and Hercules great food here about ten bucks a person. We finally got on the Mouse later that day Its the same layout as the one at Hershey but I think Hersheys is still better (unbraked). The Lazer was down until about 9:30 that night. We were one of the few fortunate riders that night. I like this coaster it has tons of positive g's thru the loops and laterals on the helices. Finally we ended our night on Steel Force in the dark.

I think we got on Steel Force 3 times once at night. One run on the Mouse, Woodstock Express, and Laser. 4 on the Thawk and Hercules. We also forked over the money to ride the Skyscraper once.
