IOA Question?

Sunday, February 3, 2002 12:26 PM
My family and I are going to IOA soon.  I have also never been there before.  I was just wondering what rides I sould hit first, and what rides can wait till the next visit.  Also how big are the crowds on certain days. Thanks

First hit Hulk, Spidey, and Doom (if you've never done a space shot before). Then from there skip Toon Lagoon until later when it is warm and do JPRA. After JPRA head on over to the dragons and do a bunch rerides on both sides. From there do as you please. It should only take you about an hour and half to do all the major rides if you get there when they open.

I would recommend DEFINITELY hitting Spidey first...the capacity of the ride means the line casn get pretty long.  Hulk and Doom are in the area, and if you HAVE done the space-shots before, you'll definitely want to do some re-rides on that...VERY slow a couple weeks ago when we went!  DDR ( the "real" DDR) is the best log flume I've been on (KBF's a close second), and Bilge-Rat Barges is the best river raft ride, too...waits won't be bad for the water rides, as it's not really that warm here to us Floridians....

Quite frankly the lines for all the rides I went to last week were I believe ten minute waits at the longest.  With those kind of lines you don't really need any set plans.  I did notice that when I was there (Jan 27th) that Dudley Do Right's flume was closed for refurbishment.

Just wait till next year!

I'll be heading to IOA on the 10/11th...I'll let you know if DDR is back up by then.  USF will be doing Mardi Gras then, and I'll get to check out the proposed spots for the rumored Apollo13...
