Great day at Six Flags America. Got to the park around 1:30, and parked in the front lot. (It's not crowded at all during the week). Everything was up and running except for typhoon sea coaster. Wild One had a temporary breakdown, but after a few test runs was up and running about 15 minutes after we got to the park.

First ride of the day was S:ROS, which was only running one train, but the wait was still only 15 minutes. They had taken some wheels off the red train and were working on it onsite most of the day. Next was Batwing, one train operation, still only a 15 minute wait. The machanics were in the second station working on one of the trains. One of the rows was still reclined while the rest of the train wasn't. They fixed it while we were in the station waiting for the trian to return. Next was Joker's Jinx, once again with one trian operation and they were working on the other train which is completely assembled on the transfer track. That was a walk on. Seems like during the week is when they work on the trains. All other rides were two train operation (with the obvious exception of Two-Face, lol). Overall it was a great day. Seems like they have improved on service a lot this year. Maybe they will reward us with a new ride next year. As a season pass holder, I feel as if this is going to be a great season for the park, as they have made many improvements.

Thanks for the update! This is a rare occasion when 1 train op is good for us and the park!

Sounds like you had a good time,which is more than I can say for my last visit. I sure hope they can get JJ up to 2 train op real soon seeing as how the lines with single train op are starting to get long and hopefully new wheels on S:ROS will take out some of the shakiness in the ride,I hope both coasters are up to full operation by the 29th.

You should've seen Batwing last weekend with both sides running and both trains in use it was a sight for sore eyes as well as sore feet.

Sounds like you had a good time, a 15 minute wait for any coaster is great!
