Hey Im going to BGW and WC the last week of august and I need help on what to hit first at both parks and stuff. Where to eat. What the lines will be like. I think I am only spending one day in each park. Also my mom just had a triple bypass. Shes recovering and I was wondering is there a lot of stuff that she can do besides riding anything cause she can't. Thanks any info would be awesome.

I haven't made it over to WC yet, but I can tell you a bit about BGW. First of all, if you spend the whole day at BGW, you'll easily be able to see everything, especially if you go during the week. The longest lines (usually Alpengeist) should be no more than 20 minutes or so. I have done all 5 coasters and eaten dinner in less than 2 hours before, so it can definitely be done.
I'd start by walking up the center, riding Loch Ness Monster on the way. Head back to Alpengeist and get a few rides in, then follow back through the Oktoberfest area, riding Wilde Maus on the way. Stop at Big Bad Wolf, head over to Apollo's Chariot and ride till you get enough, then ride Escape from Pompeii. At this time, you've ridden all the coasters, and should have tons of time to just do whatever then. Head over to Ireland and do Corkscrew hill, stop at New France for lunch (or dinner later) at the Three Rivers Smokehouse.
Basically, you can do whatever you want. The park is small enough, and the lines short enough that you can do it in pretty much any order and still see everything. You'll have a great time. BGW is such a beautiful park, and has some great atmosphere, great food, and some killer coasters.

There are tons of great shows at BGW. I am sure your mother will not have much trouble finding things to do my only concern would be getting around as the park is spread out and there are some extemly hilly sections! I think the park rents out electric carts for use if you want to do that. I like what jman said about the loch ness first.. when I got a hit lochness twice thn double back and hit the wait for the rope drop to apollo's chariot and get in a few laps of it usualy book ending the train.
All at once the ghosts come back reeling you in now.
