I had planed to go to BGW last summer, but due to the heat of 106 degrees with 100% humidity, and no wind we cut our trip short, and made it to PKD, and Sixflags America instead. Since it was on the way home. I just wanted to know if there is anything worth riding or attractions at BGW that I must make sure I don't miss. Also do they have sit in restaurants in the park, and lastly has anyone has experience with hotels in the area worth staying in.
On Monday we will visit the water park, and maybe go into the park for the evening, then the following Tuesday we will spend more time in the park. My question is should I expect long wait times for any rides at either the water park or any of the parks thrill rides in excess of 45mins or more? IM sure there are BGW locals who may read this. Anything you know is good help.
In addtion. During my visit to PKD last season the park was not too busy, but I think it was due to the heat. The longest wait was for Volcano which was all of the switch backs in its queue line under the shaded area outside the Volcano , and then some. It took about 40mins. Should I expect the same on a Thursday or more or less? IM aiming to ride their new drop tower, are the lines long for that as well?
Thank you to anyone who made an effort to reading this topic. I know that when I have any questions pertaining to any park I could log onto Coasterbuzz, and someone will have some type of helpful information pertaining to the topic. Again thanks.
P. S I am set to be in BGW Tuesday, August, 19. However IM not too sure so I wont post it in the meeting calendar unless IM 100% defiantly going that date. As of now anything can change.
If you're planning on going to BGW and Water Country combined for more than 2 days, I recommend the "Wild Card" pass we purchased at Colonial Williamsburg...it was $105 for 4 days at BGW, Water Country, and Colonial Williamsburg... we weren't really interested in Colonial, but we couldn't pass up the deal since we went to BG 2 days and Water Country 1 day... the pass includes free parking...great deal! :)
Can't give you any details on hotels as we stayed with relatives of a friend... BG has PLENTY of sit down places to eat in each of the "countries"...
Hope I answered some of your questions...
PKD on a thursday should be all walkons or one train waits except for Volcano, Hypersonic, and Drop Zone. The longest wait might be a half hour for HSXLC. And of if you want some great food near PKD outside of the park, about 5 miles south is the "Welcome Back Diner" that is one of the greatest little diners I have ever been to.
And make sure to take part in teh nightrides on Grizzly. You can just reride and reride and reride.
I was offended at PKD the first time I visited; I thought (most of) the coasters sucked, and the park was untidy. I also found the class of persons that visit PKD is much different than the class of person at BGW. I'll just leave that one alone. The second time I visited PKD, Volcano was up (which I liked), and H-XLC was new (which I didn't). I think you either like or hate PKD, and I think I fall into the latter category.....
"That's DOCTOR Evil. I didn't spend six years in evil medical school to be called 'Mr. Thank You Very Much.'"
Anyway, at BGW be sure to hit all the coasters once during the day and again at night. Be sure to especially hit BBW at night, this is in my opinion is the most improved ride at night. For other rides, be sure to hit Escape From Pompeii (Intamin big boat splash), Roman Rapids (raft ride), Corkscrew Hill (an exceptional 4-D simulator). Be sure to also hit the shows they are exceptional and finally check out the shops in the German section right past Alpie, they are of EPCOT World Showcase quality.

Water Country USA is also one of my favorite waterparks. There's a great seleciton of slides, and Peppermint Twist pulls the most insane g's, even more than S:UF.
