I will be at PKI on June 10th, a Monday, and was wondering if you guys have any pointers on how to structure the day. It's been over 10yrs since I've been so a lot has been added.
Any tips and suggestions will be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!

Well I know a lot of people think this is crazy but I would not do TR:TR first but hit Action Zone which is filled with roller coasters and thrill rides. TR:TRs line will fill up but stay the same throughout the day. Best time is right after a break down. You can get almost right on. Anyway I would start with Drop Zone in Action Zone and then to Face/off, Top Gun, SOB, and Congo falls if you wish to get wet. Then head over to oktoberfest and hit adventure express and the swinging ship(Viking Fury). Next in order would be Racers which should have no line at this time. After this maybe hit some flats in Coney Mall in route to FOF. After that hit some more flats and then to Vortex(Rough Rider) and 7th portal. It should be no later than 12 now. Then hit The Beast and TR:TR. If you do PKI right you will have a lot of time for rerides. You might want to hit Water works by the train. Stay here until it closes - 8 I think. Then come back and ride a few more things and get back in time to ride the beast at night. As long as your in line before the park closes or the fireworks they will let you ride. This is what I always do but some people will say start with TR:TR and thats not a bad idea. Whatever you do you should start at one end and just circle around. Hope that helps, oh ya, there is great food all around, personal fav - La Rosas pizza and Starline Chili

Thank you all very much.
I wish I was going a day early but it is on route for our family vacation at CP and that is the only day we can get to PKI.

I would go right to the Beast to start. Most people go to the Action Zone first. If you go to the back, you should be able to ride the Beast and Vortex, and maybe FoF before the queues fill up.
He let the contents of the bottle do the thinking; can't shake the devil's hand and say you're only kidding.

Den, I was going to say that but normally Action Zone lines fill up to around an hour very quick. Normally the beast doesn't see much action until later. Vortex never has longer than a half hour wait. FOF will fill up but you will have to wait for a few things and it might as well be in air condition
