I see. Typhoon was operated as a coaster... so you had 2-3 3 persons rafts on the ride at the same time, so capacity is great! I guess that's one area where Proslide improved.

Do people seriously wait three hours for a water slide? That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. I get impatient waiting more than 10 minutes for a water slide.
You beat me to it. I was going to say the exact same thing. Like, are you freaking kidding me? There are very few roller coasters that are worth that wait, and exactly 0 water rides. I don't care how great it is. There's no way I'd wait. I was wondering who could stand a waterpark for two consecutive days, and now I realize you have to if you want to ride anything there.

It's worth it once or twice (a long that is; a short line? Get the hell on the ride). Riding it once is great because it is a unique ride that is nothing like you have ever ridden before.

But I'd still wait 3 hours for the tube chutes before Master Blaster.

According to the recent special, Master Blaster does have blocks like a coaster, and even if someone were to get trapped in one of the upper blocks, the people on the lower levels can continue with their rides. SFOGswim, they actually have cottages to stay in over on the Blastenhoff side, so apparently people do make a two-day deal out of it.

One thing we heard was that when the park gets really crowded in the in-season, that the lifeguards are not allowed to go there on their days off. It's been four years, but since we there in May, it wasn't too crowded. Again, we only got to experience one side of the park. We might have waited 1/2-hour for Master Blaster, but luckily it is shaded. It may sound excessive for just a "waterslide," but Master Blasters are anything but. Imagine a launch ride where you are launched over and over and over again, instead of once (or twice) and that gives you an idea of how fun they are compared to some coasters.
