I went there last summer for the first time and loved it. The Giant Dipper is really an amazing coaster.

We were there last month and fell in love with the place. Something that I have yet to see mentioned anywhere- the park is selling an excellent book highlighting the park's history. Either go there and buy it, or find a place online that's selling it. I'm sure someone will soon have it in stock. Well worth the money, IMHO.
