Mamoosh's avatar 5 coasters in 90 mins = 18 mins per coaster. Assuming you rode each once, and taking into account the walk between coasters and each ride's cycle time and I estimate you couldn't have waited more than an average of 15 minutes for each. If that's the case it sounds like crowds were light, in which case a 1-train op was probably sufficient.

So how, exactly, were operations horrible in that respect? On most summer days waiting 15 mins for a coaster would be a dream scenario.

When on Thunder Run they check the belts, then the lap bars (as apposed to doing it at the same time), that is not a dream scenario.

And r.r. express doesnt count toward your little equation due to the fact I got in line at 6:59, which brings that hour an a half up to 22.5 minutes per ride.

And g.l. was a walk-on which brings your equation to roughly 25 minutes for chang, thunder run and t2.

On a day where these lines barely made it out of the station, that is horrible.

Guess I'm just used to the professionalism of CP!

a_hoffman50's avatar If I were you, I would be glad that the wait was not longer for them and that you got on as many as you did instead of complaining about a 25 minute wait at the end of a summer day when ride ops are tired and energy is running low.

relative to the crowd, i shouldn't have waited that long, thats my only point

a_hoffman50's avatar You should not have waited that long, because you think it should have been better, or because the park/ride ops really could have done better? Were they understaffed?

Still, you got 5 rides in an hour and a half. That is pretty durn good, in my book.
