Millennium what?  Its hard to pick an all time favorite day that I have ever had at the park but today would fall in the top three.  Everything from a near rollback to getting to do the speil for my 81st lap of the day it was awesome.
I got to the front gate around 2:15, and around 2:30 or so they handed out our wrist bands and MF ride coupons.  Met up with Hooper and after the national anthem was played we entered the park and made a B line towards Magnum. 
RG Rob was already on platform as he entered through the Magnum gate which I was told will be open tommarow night.  For the entire day the ride was running great.  We only had to walk around twice and after that it was reride after reride after reride. 
They opened the ride with three trains.  On my 9th ride I was sitting with Hooper, I think we were sitting in 22 of the black train.  When we came over the third hill I noticed that the trims were on.  I didn't think it was a big deal, we went through the trims and it was loud,  the trims were on full pressure.  We are going through the first part of the turnaround and I was like !@#$%^ we are going to rollback.  I could not beleive how slow the train was, it was the slowest return run I have ever had on Magnum.  It had a crazy time of 67 seconds!
Shortly after that they took the black train off and only ran the devil train and the blue train.  They closed the ride three times, once to transfer black off, and twice to change bad road wheels on the devil train.
For the day I clocked in 81 laps and I am only 17 laps away from the magic number of 2000.
All in all it was a great day filled with great times and I want to thank CP for putting on such a wonderful event.
I also want to thank Hooper for some great, great laughs, so he will be riding 2000 with me in spirit tommarow.  I should hit 2000 around 4:30 tommarow.
I can't beleive I get three more days like this.
thanks CP!

They need to dedicate you for Magnum by brush painting your face on the front of each Magnum train. That coaster is definitely your drug. LOL!!!
