We arrived at the park around 1. While walking to the front gate we noticed no ine for superman. Got in the park went right to superman 2nd row 1 trian wait great ride 9-10.

Next was Iron Wolf walked past batman it was closed and noticed a sign that said V2 was closed all day big dissapointment there. Walked on to Iron Wolf last row. This was the fastest smoothest ride ever on Iron Wolf great ride 10-10.

Next was AE red, we went on red cause me and my gf havent been on the red side for 2 years now. 1 train wait It was a good ride nice air time 8-10.

After Eagle we went to Raging Bull. We had to wait from the bottom of the stairs after all the switch backs only took about 15 min for the second row. Great ride 10-10.

Viper was next. We sat 4th row from the back thw checking the lap bars slammed my down 3 times befor it would click again not very cool so we rode it once good air time and i noticed alot of metal polls were put in. good ride 7-10.

I was there on Sunday as well. We got there at about 11:30 and had about a 10-15 minute wait for Superman. Everything else was just as you described. Deja Vu was running, and we were in the station at about 12:45, and then they ceased operation due to weather conditions, even though the rain hadn't picked up any since we had first arrived at the park. It never reopened as far as I know.

One bad idea is riding Iron Wolf front row in the rain...the thought about our pants getting soaked never crossed our minds...oh well!

I was glad to see the monsters still out and still doing a good job, despite the cold, rain, and last night of the season.

The head in a box at Rue le Morgue was a nice touch..but if you heard it once, it got old. Glad to see there is some random humor out there these days though. "Boo. OK, OK, so maybe it wasn't that scary. But the Bat-Man! He is scary!"

Finally, I have to give the park major credit for the Terror Twister this year. In the past it was the same song from the Mortal Kombat soundtrack all the time, with just a strobe light. Then the last couple of years it was Sandstorm, a little fog, and some lights. This year there were several songs, all good ones, lots of lights, lots of fog, and a decent strobe. We rode 5 times, which is probably why I am very sore while typing this! I never thought it would be possible have an arm cramp while raving though!

"And we are now passing under Millennium Force, which, with the arrival of Top Thrill Dragster, is now...just blue."

With the exception of the multiple songs, Terror Twister was much better last year than this year.
