One Time in early March just after Goliath just opened, they opened the gates and EVERYONE ran to Goliath, I ran the other way though to Superman and got on that a ton of times all alone before the crowds thought of going on the other rides. BTW, When S:TE has less than 5 peeps on it, it almost hits the brakes at the top. I have seen pictures of it happen before. I also saw it one time at Disneyland for the Rocket Rods.

I think the most publicised instance of this is at CP w/ MF.

Definitly MF. They even had a special about it on the thrill rides thing on Discovery a few weeks ago(I watched from my Holiday Inn room in Sandusky preparing for my day at CP). The secret to the MF run is that side entrance. You are already half way there and the peeps are already tired before they even reach that far.

Is anyone else besides me think that the use of the word peeps to describe other people is borderline retarted?

The running of the bulls started at CP long before Millennium. They started lining people up at the chains in order to alleviate the lines at the ticket booths and main entrance. This also helps to alleviate some of the traffic on the causeway. MF just happens to be the new thing at CP so people scramble to it. It was the same way with Magnum, Mean Streak, Raptor, Mantis, but not so much with Power Tower.

Take it easy Dave! But anyways, I don't know why people make such a fuss over the running of the bulls at CP. I think it is a healthy thing for the park, it shortens lines for MF. Yes, if you are with a baby in a stroller you might be irratated by hundreds of coaster hungry people running as fast as they can but the entire right side of the Midway is usually clear.

One of the action Zone special days for PKI (i have a gold pass), my friend and I just got done doing 3 laps on SOB (walkon) and we went over to Drop Zone( also walkon) and once we got off, you could just see crowds running to SOB, Drop Zone, face/off, and Top Gun (and on that day, Top gun was only running one car)
PKI I dont think uses any kind of rope, but normally you can get into the park at 9, wait by the entrance of the ride, and at 10 jump in line.
Ive never been there at opening, but i was during the preview days
