We were at the park at 10:00 but didn't get in till 10:45. We had to buy my friend's ticket. My other friends went in to the park and bought fastlane.

Once in we met with my friends and went to Viper, trying to avoid the crowded station. When we got there, there was already a line. Oh well.We waited about 20 frustrating minutes.

Next onto Raging Bull. We only waited 30 minutes and it was better today than any other time i went this season. It seemed faster, better, and more exciting.

Next to AE backwards. It was a 30 minute wait counting the 10 minute breakdown. This ride is still really cool and I don't think I will ever get borded of going backwards.

It was 1:00 and we ate lunch.

Got back at 2:00 and we went to Batman using our first fastlane. It was about 30 minute wait for front row. I got really dizzy.

Onto one of my favorites which was V2. Used our 2nd fastlane and waited 20 minutes for front row. I love this ride front row and I think it is only good front row.

We decide to skip Iron Wolf because of the long line so we went to watch Zaije. It was a very exciting show.

Then Raging Bull fastlane. We decided to wait front row. It was only about 25 minute wait.

Next was Viper again, backrow. Very fun backrow.

We were so tired so we rode the train around the park. Then went back to Raging Bull for our last Fastlane. 8th row, which was very fun.

We were still tired so we rode the Columbia Courasel, Sky trek tower, and Space shuttle america.

We headed towards Southwest territory again androde Richochet, River Rocker, and Trail Blazier. It was 8:50pm now and the park was going to close so we ran to Viper. We were the third to last train on Viper and it was a great way to end the day. Viper is very cool in the pitch black. We were out of the park at 9:45pm

V2 can't be compared to any of the rides in SFGAm!The Vertical Drop was amazing!

By the way, while I was on Sky trek Tower, I couldn't see Deja Vu's station because it was covered by the wooden platform. They were testing Deja Vu in the morning and they had a sign outside the ride saying it would not be open today.

Something I noticed was the platform comes really close the the track. It seems as though the train would hit the top of the platform.

Amen! I was there today, and the lines were absolutely rediculous! They couldn't get Deja Vu to work, and Batman was running haphazardly thoroughout the latter part of the day. Oh well, the weather was nice, and i was with a bunch of friends. It's all good.

Welcome to Six Flags Great America, home of the fastlane and delay-ja vu! We have now officially been deemed the world-wide wait!

Looking at that wooden platform, it seems like it would be the ultimate footchopper.

So, it was testing, but it didn't work? Or did it complete its cycles effectively? I'm going on Thursday and am anxious to know if I'll get a chance to ride it.

It only tested in the morning a little bit..

The lines were HUGE!! But, my friend has a stress fracture and got us an exit pass... you all will probably shoot me, but we all went on Raging Bull 1 time standing in line, 3 times exit pass, V2 1 time 5 minute wait in line, 3 times exit pass, and Viper one time in line, 3 times exit pass!
