Well the first time to PKI in months. Arrived at the park at 10:05. The first ride we got to was Tomb Raider. After about a 1:15 wait we finally stepped into the main tomb. The theming was great but I'll go further into that later. Next we went over to hit Flight of Fear as The Racer,FOF,and TR:TR were the only "major" rides open. So after another ride on FOF and a classic on The Racer,we headed for action zone. At this time Drop Zone had finally been opened. So we hit this and waited maybe 10 minutes. As we began the lift,we noticed a line began to form for Son of Beast. AS soon as we got off we quickly passed a mass of people and hopped in the awaiting line. After another ride on SOB(which would be the first of 14 rides on the day!!). Next we headed into Octoberfest for our traditional lunch of LaRosa's pizza. After we got done eating at about 3 we noticed Face/Off was about to open so waited in the 20 minute wait for the first time since 1999 but it was fun.Once off of this Adventure Express we decided to take a joy/jerky ride on it. Then back to Drop Zone for 9 strait rides on it w/o waiting at all!!! Now we were to take another round up of the park before the gold passholders got their 2 hours of free ride on SOB. So we hit the Racer for the second tme,FOF for the second time in a 2 minute wait,and a 20 minute wait for TR:TR. So now we head back over to SOB and get on the ride at 8:15. After taking another ride on the wonderful ride. When we pulled back into the station the ride ops informed us that if no one was in your your seat,you didnt need to get up, in other words POWER RIDE. OMG was it fun. 12,thats right,12 strait rides on SOB before we went back around the line in order to get a ride in the front seat and man was it cold up there!!! We were in train 2 which we informed had been clocked in at 82 earlier in the day. In 45 minutes we rode SOB 13 times. Now for the rides:

Son of Beast-14 rides
The ride was just running ut of control the whole day. Definately the best ride of the day,but still number 2 to the Beast.

Drop Zone-10 rides
rating- 5-
The ride is a lot more enjoyable when your not waiting to ride it but it is fun.

Tomb Raider:The Ride-3 rides
rating- 4
Though another Giant top spin,the theming to this ride is just spectacular!!! You really have to ride it to know how good it is.

Flight of Fear-2 rides
rating- 5-
I love this ride and it was a great day for pics because the lights were on inside the building.

The Racer-2 rides
rating- 3
Still a classic ride but get a back seat ride to have the most fun/ou-of-control rie you can get.

Face/Off-1 ride
rating- 4-
A fun ride and seemed really good though the last time i felt like waiting in line for this was 1999.

Adventure Express-1 ride
rating- 2-
Still a small and not very good ride it does offer some speed but it seems jerkyer than last year.

Thats it for rides. Also, The Beast and Vortex did not open all day an if you look at the park map it says where King Kobra once stood to look fo something new for 2003....

No Vortex open today, thats sucks! But, you say FOF's lights were on? Work Lights? You should post the pics! Nice report!

So what is better? SFMM or CP? I don't care! They both have 29 coasters between them that they build so we can have a good time!

Excuse me, but, another Giant Top Spin? There's only one.
The word "definitely" is definitely the most misspelled word on the buzz.
