Can you take the force?
Best coasters I think for the family would be the corkscrew (sit in back for smoothest ride) the blue streak (if kids aren't afraid of air time let them sit in back) Mean Streak (i can't think of an especially exceptional seat) Disatser transport (same) Cedar Creek Mine ride (same),Wildcat (same) Iron Dragon (front or back), gemini( back) and the Woodstock express. If you and the kids like flat rides, i reccomend the troika, the calypso, and chaos. The gentler rides are the antique cars, the cedar downs racing horses, and of course the train. The best rides for cooling off are the thunder canyon, and Splashwater falls..
Now, depending on age/ height of kids, I believe that at least you must catch a ride on Raptor (back seat right side) Millenium Force (front or back) Magnum (seat 3-1, or back) Wicked Twister (back) and Mantis (front or back)
Hope this is somewhat helpful! Have a great time!
RollerCoasters aren't my whole life... they just make my life whole
I'd rather die living than live like I'm dead
The boathouse (just outside the marina gate) is a great place for lunch. Good view of the marina, tasty food, cocktails for mom and dad, and sweet potato fries. Around the same price as midway market for lunch, not counting drinks. It's also even more of a break from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the park.
The fried fish at the Silver Dollar is enough to feed two reasonable people.
If your children are a little older and have no fear, Then they can ride Magnum (back seat is the best), Millennium force (very front seat or the back seat is best, about 15-20 min. wait for front), Mantis (any seat really, front is good), Raptor (Front or back, right side of the train is better), Mean Streak (it's rough, but not bad, I enjoy it in the back), Wicked Twister (back is the best) and Top Thrill Dragster (front seat will be about 40 min. extra wait, but well worth it).
Magnum, Raptor and MF are all great rides at night. Nothing like flying through the dark not being able to see much of anything.
As for flat rides, Chaos is my favorite (you have to help rock the car). Witches wheel is good along with Troika, Monster, Cedar Downs and Matterhorn. These are the rides that I like, you may like others, so don't exclude the others. I don't have any kids, so I can't tell you about the kiddy rides.
If it's really hot, Thunder Canon and Snake River Falls will get you really soaked. White water landing is fun, but you do not get very wet.
Take a small camera and a fanny pack, because there are a lot of great pictures to be taken
Have fun, I know that you will.
