1) How bad should I expect the crowds to be?
2) Anybody know of any good coupons, or other discounts I might find in the area??
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!!
As far as discounts, AAA has some good deals with BGW.

Not sure how it is for the rest of the week.

Discounts: I currently have right now a coke can with a discount on it for PKD, and this is what it says...
"Present this can and save $7 Mon-Sun off the Adult General Admission. Good for up to 6 admissions."
Crowds: If you are going to both parks back to back (sat/sun), I would suggest trying to go to BGW on Sat, and PKD on Sun. Since I got my liscense, I make frequent trips to PKD for the evenings, and Sunday's have proved well.
Usually PKD's lines run around 45m - 1hr for volcano and hypersonic, with 30 - 45m for FoF. If you go on a saturday, expect double that if not close to that.
Going to BGW on saturday would probably be much better. Though you may get the longer lines at BGW, there is a bit more to do there. Also BGW is much more shady and interesting to walk around in, whereas PKD on a hot day is very miserable when waiting in line because there arent too many shady areas.
Hopefully that helps answer your questions, have fun!

Don't miss Scooby Doo at PKD. A fine John Allen junior with nice pops of air. Don't miss the shows at BGW.
Oh one more thing, any good non-coaster attractions worth checking out in either of those areas (besides colonial williamsburg).
Coasterfan4life,you most definitely will enjoy DZ,even though the line may appear long it moves rather fast,on my 2nd ride the line stretched all the way back to the wave swinger area & yet we managed to get on in about in hour to an hour & a half at the most,which is much better than HS:XLC's wait time any day.
For some reason V:TBC is becoming somewhat of a headbanger,but it's still a great ride & one you will certainly enjoy.
When you go to BGW you must see the Irish Thunder show. Its a Riverdance style dance performance, and it is totally incredible. Definitely a not to be missed attraction. Be forewarned though, you may have to get to the theater 30-45 minutes before the show starts if you want to get a seat.
And Trogdor smote the Kerrek, and all was laid to Burnination.
Because PKD seems to be really bad on capacity with their major attractions (except Drop Zone), I like to go in the evenings when lines are shortest.
The greatest thing is that on a weekend night (or good sunday night ), I could easily get 1 volcano ride, 3 FoF rides, 1 Hypersonic ride, maybe 3 - 4 anaconda rides, and then have an hour left for re-rides on the woodies. All that in about a 4hr period if you do it well.
