Ok we got to the park about a 1/2 hour after the gates opened and Son of Beast was not even testng. The reason for that was the heavy rains that started from 2 days ago till the early morning of our trip. We headed towards face off
but the line was 2 hours long. So we went to top gun witch was a walk-on ride. Awesome ride but too short lots of wind in you face and watery eyes! The ride op told us that sob was going to be open in a half hour. We went over towards the racer and adventure express because those are rides my brother and sister can ride. our first time on was more shakey and bumpy than usual but, we got alot of air time. next we rode adventure express witch is a nice little mine ride and is very rough with its sharp turns. By that time the 1/2 hour was over and there still was not a single train testing on son of beast. We got a quick snack and injoyed some of the canaval rides like the bumper cars and the swings. Next we stood in line for the beast. This was my litlle brothers first time on the beast and he nearly crapped himself but he did love it. Next we rode vortex, awesome ride love the batwing and the corkscrew. Next we took a break for lunch. Then we rode king cobra, that is awesome for a starter stand up coaster it is very loud lots of air time for me. son of beast still was not running. My dad started to make fun of its name by repaceing beast with that other b word. we took a couple rides on the racers, adventure express and top gun, son of beast started testing but broke down while testing while the 5 hour long line watched. We took a ride on congo falls and my mom and dad got soaked. After that we rode face off that is one intense ride we rode it backwards first with my dad facing us. Its very loud and fast. Sob finaly started to run trains with people loaded in but the lines but it was to little to late because it was late in the day and we were to tired to stand in the long line. so we rode the racers 2 tim猀 愀渀搀 挀愀氀氀攀搀 椀琀 愀 搀愀礀⸀ 䄀氀氀 椀渀 䄀氀氀 椀琀 眀愀猀 愀 最爀攀愀琀 搀愀礀 愀渀搀 眀攀 栀愀搀 氀漀琀猀 漀昀 昀甀渀⸀ 匀伀䈀 眀愀猀 琀栀攀 漀渀氀礀 氀攀琀 搀漀眀渀 漀昀 琀栀攀 搀愀礀 戀甀琀 琀栀攀 搀愀礀 眀愀猀 眀漀爀琀栀 椀琀⸀ 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀 ⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀ 㰀戀爀㸀 圀伀伀䐀 刀唀䰀䔀匀℀ 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀ഀഀഀ ⨀⨀⨀ 吀栀椀猀 瀀漀猀琀 眀愀猀 攀搀椀琀攀搀 戀礀 猀漀渀 漀昀 戀攀愀猀琀 漀渀 㠀⼀㤀⼀㈀ ⸀ ⨀⨀⨀

That sounds like my experience with SOB. Except that it NEVER opened to the public, only for water dummies. I was so pissed, but I got over it. That was July 10th.
Gotta ride 'em all!
