What a great day, great weather and an empty park. Everything was running two trains except for Big Dipper and X Flight. RWB was still shut down. I arived at the park a little after ten and got my season pass processed and headed into the park. I started out on Thunder Hawk and took a few quick laps. I was the only one on the train a few times.

After hitting the restroom I headed over to Dominator. Walk on again. I like the back left the best. I took several rides and then headed over to the old Sea World side just to look around. Really nothing going on but for the water ski show and a few places to eat.

Back over to the ride side for more laps on Dominator and then the Villan and a quick ride on Double Loop. I had asked for rerides on TH and Dominator and they would not give them, but there was a guy rerideing DL over and over and over. I noticed him while I was riding Villan over and over. I really didn't want to do rerides on DL.

Up to the front for XF and SV. XF was the only coaster that I really had to wait for, maybe 5 min for the front. Later rides were walk on. SV was broke so I headed over to BD. Great ride and lots of air. I had forgotten how good this ride was.

I took a spin on Texas Twister and loved it. Several more rides on all of the coasters and finally SV a few times. They were having some sort of bug that they could not figure out. My first ride launched about 10 feet and then stopped. We were stuck there about 5 minutes until they reset it and backed us into the station. A few test launches and I finally got a few rides in on it. I left the park about 5 pm having my fill of rides for the day.

The park seems much cleaner and the staff friendlier now under CF. I enjoyed the walk on rides but was hoping the park would have more people in it. A park can't survive without guests.

Yes, it was pretty empty yesterday. I got there at 5pm. Steel Venom didn't run for the rest of the day. Atround 9 pm it started to rain. Other than that it was sunny and no crowds.
