This is the summary or re-cap version, full version comming momentarily.
The Day: Hot, yet not unbearable.
The Park: Mostly Clean, very efficient.
The Crowds: Moderate (light for Gadv), well behaved.
Pendulum: Favorite flat ride. Fun and intense.
Batman: The Chiller - Fun. Very disorenting. A little more headbanging than Mr. Freeze.
Batman: The Ride - a little less themeing than the original. Same intense ride quality.
NITRO - Nice "floaty" hyper. Very re-rideable.
Skull Mountain - Not much, but hey, it's in the dark
Houdini's Great Escape - Very Effective
Medusa - Nice, but not as perfect as Kraken.
Rodeo (?)- Average Breakdance
Rolling Thunder (right)- Sucked so bad it made me laugh!
Taz Twister - A rotor always pleases.
Jumping Jack Flash - Bark worse than it's bite. Great fun.
GASM - Roughest steel coaster I've ridden. Drastically different from Shockwave @ SFGAm.
The Twister - Good ride. Not my cup of tea.
Saw Mill Log Flume - Long relaxing flume, mimimal wetness.
Runaway Train - Better than average Mine train. Slightly painful bunny hill
BlackBeard's Lost Treasure Train - It's a kiddie coaster nothing more (CHA-CHING)
Riptide - Shorter relaxing flume, slightly wetter.
Overall Opinion: Gadv is a park I will return to. There is a ton of stuff to do. I'd really like to see it when ALL of the flat rides are operating.

right side is the bad one. Left side is the complete opposite.
