I arrived about 2:30 and in despite of what I thought would be a large crowd, the crowds were fairly light for an 85 degree day. All coasters were running and the only flat ride I could tell was closed was the Tilt-A-Whirl (no big loss). Renegade Rapids was posted as closed outside but apparently opened later in the day. Can't wait until they get the newly added 25-cent water cannons operating! The longest wait I had was for S:ROS and that was probably 30 minutes or less both times I rode. The shortest wait was for Roar which was a one train wait. Batwing construction was still happening in spite of being a Sunday. Best moment of the day: A ride op on Wild One switched places with the lapbar checkers and showed them how to quickly check lapbars. Worse moment: A young man who revisited his lunch after riding the Chaos. Glad to see that the Chaos proudly lives up to the name Spin-n-Spew. My only improvement today (and everday) would be the addition of trashcans to most of the queue lines.

I was there today too, but I actually left
at about 2:30 :). The tilt a whirl was working when I was there. Maybe there was just no line and the op needed to go to the can or something. One other addition that may have been there, but I never noticed, behind all the benches in gotham city/dc comics they have a place to prop up big shade umbrellas. I think that's a good idea as they are treeless in that area (well there are some trees, but they need to grow up).

I thought it was odd that the Tilt-A-Whirl was closed, but it was pretty late in the evening when I walked by. I agree about some more umbrellas for the benches. That's one thing I have noticed a lot more of in the last year is more seating. In fact they just added two rows of benches on the bridge where this is some tree cover.
