I got to the park at 9:45 AM. As soon as they let us in, I went to Raging Bull, front row. After that, I headed over to Batman. The new restraints eliminated the head banging in the corkscews. I was starting to get hungry, so I had some lunch.
After lunch, I went on Viper. Then I headed over to American Eagle, not racing:(. I headed back to Batman for front row. While I was in line, they were testing V2. I saw it run about 5 times before we went in the Bat cave and couldn't see it anymore. Batman front row was well worth the 1.5 hour wait. Then I went on Logger's Run. BIG MISTAKE. I got soaked. Then I had dinner.
After dinner, went on Whizzer, which had finally opened. Then I went on American Eagle red train again. I knew something was very wrong as we neared the top. The last 20ft, it was just crawling. We made it over, but the train after us did not. After I left American Eagle, I looked back. The red train was stuck at the very top. I watched for 5 minutes, but I was on a tight schedule. There was only 1.5 hours until the park closed. I went back to Raging Bull. It was to cold for front row. They had fixed American Eagle, but within a hour, it was stuck again. Batman was also stuck. I went on Sky Trek Tower. 5 minutes left, so I tried to get on the carousel. Didn't work. 9:00, everyone got kicked out of line.
V2's station is going to be orange with a copper roof. The line for V2 is almost complete. V2's sign is really neat looking. Deja Vu is complete except for the cable wheel on the second tower. Deja Vu's line is paved, but they need to add the silver hand rails.
The new ride blocking the Hometown Square-County Fair bridge is called Quad Power Jump. You are strapped in and jump on trampolines. You can do all sorts of flips and stuff, but it costs $7.00. What a rip-off

1.5 hour wait for Batman?!?! Ridiculous!!! Sounds like the lines have been horrible this year. What about Bull?

I went yesterday the bull que line was about a 40 minute wait mostly, just wait until v2 and dejavu open then it will eleviate some of the congestion for the bull or so I hope.

How long was the Viper line? I went twice last year and got on in 20 minutes on less in all of the 5 times or so I rode. I hope it doesn't change much this year because I loved that ride! Lots of rerides for me! And I can't wait to ride Deja Vu. Imagine how intense this will be.

Koaster King, I wouldn't expect any re-rides this year. The park seems to be more crowded than ever. Viper's line especially. I don't like it much but I guess thats what you get as a park grows.
