Hi everyone. To start, the forecast called for rain so the park wasn't that crowded.

It was a very productive day for coasters, I rode 7 of the 8 that I could. (I don't consider Giant Drop a coaster and I cannot ride Spacely't Sprockets Rockets.)

RAGING BULL
waited just under an hour for the front row. I have never ridden in the front of RB and I thought it was just awesome. The rush you get going down the first drop is so cool, and even in the front the air time was good. The trim brake entering the third hill didn't seem to slow us down too much. I rode again three times near closing, once in the back row and twice near the back. The trim brake that I mentioned before was even less of a slow down, and the slight drizzle gave great effect. What a ride!!!

VIPER
nearly walked on. Waited for the back, so about a 20 minute total wait. Viper gives amazing air time, which I love, especially in the back row. This small woodie is finally starting to get a little rough, but it wasn't too bad, and I still love this ride. However, I only got to ride it once :(

IRON WOLF
waited around 20 min. The first time I rode it, it seemed much smoother than last year, and I believe it had new harnesses, they were yellow and I don't ever remember seeing them before. However, the second time I rode, it was very painful. I used to love it, but it is declining with age.

BATMAN: THE RIDE
waited a rather long time for the front row. It was worth the wait. The original inverted coaster still packs a punch, and I love the front. I had not been on this in well over a year, so I had forgot how many inversions there were. I rode again with a very short wait in the way back, where it seems a whole lot faster. Even though it is extremely short, it's a great ride.

SHOCKWAVE
walked on. The very first time I rode this one (about three years ago) I liked it bett爀 琀栀愀渀 䈀㨀吀刀⸀  一漀眀Ⰰ 椀琀 椀猀 戀甀洀瀀椀攀爀 琀栀愀渀 䤀爀漀渀 圀漀氀昀 眀椀琀栀 猀漀洀攀 戀愀搀 戀爀愀欀椀渀最⸀  䤀 漀渀氀礀 爀漀搀攀 椀琀 漀渀挀攀 樀甀猀琀 琀漀 猀愀礀 䤀 眀愀猀 漀渀 椀琀Ⰰ 渀漀眀 䤀✀洀 搀漀渀攀 眀椀琀栀 椀琀 昀漀爀 琀栀攀 礀攀愀爀⸀㰀戀爀㸀਀㰀戀爀㸀਀䐀䔀䴀伀一㰀戀爀㸀਀眀愀椀琀攀搀 愀戀漀甀琀 ㄀  洀椀渀⸀  一漀琀 愀猀 爀漀甀最栀 愀猀 氀愀猀琀 礀攀愀爀Ⰰ 䤀 愀挀琀甀愀氀氀礀 攀渀樀漀礀攀搀 椀琀⸀  䤀 猀琀椀氀氀 琀栀椀渀欀 椀琀 椀猀 琀漀漀 猀栀漀爀琀⸀㰀戀爀㸀਀㰀戀爀㸀਀䄀䴀䔀刀䤀䌀䄀一 䔀䄀䜀䰀䔀㰀戀爀㸀਀眀愀椀琀攀搀 愀戀漀甀琀 ㈀  洀椀渀⸀  唀渀昀漀爀琀甀渀愀琀攀氀礀Ⰰ 䤀 挀栀漀猀攀 渀漀琀 琀漀 眀愀椀琀 昀漀爀 琀栀攀 昀爀漀渀琀 爀漀眀Ⰰ 愀渀搀 琀栀椀猀 戀甀洀瀀礀 漀氀搀 眀漀漀搀椀攀 椀猀渀✀琀 琀栀愀琀 最爀攀愀琀 昀爀漀洀 愀渀礀 漀琀栀攀爀 爀漀眀⸀  吀栀攀 昀椀爀猀琀 搀爀漀瀀 椀猀 最爀攀愀琀Ⰰ 愀渀搀 椀琀 猀琀椀氀氀 洀漀瘀攀猀 瘀攀爀礀 昀愀猀琀Ⰰ 戀甀琀 椀琀 洀漀瘀攀猀 眀愀礀 琀漀 猀氀漀眀 愀昀琀攀爀 琀栀愀琀⸀㰀戀爀㸀਀㰀戀爀㸀਀䤀 琀栀漀甀最栀琀 琀栀攀 猀琀愀昀昀 眀愀猀 渀椀挀攀 愀渀搀 猀漀洀攀 眀攀爀攀 瘀攀爀礀 攀渀琀栀甀猀椀愀猀琀椀挀Ⰰ 攀猀瀀攀挀椀愀氀氀礀 琀栀攀 漀渀攀猀 愀琀 刀愀最椀渀最 䈀甀氀氀⸀  䴀漀猀琀 漀昀 琀栀攀 昀漀漀搀 瀀氀愀挀攀猀 眀攀爀攀 挀氀漀猀攀搀Ⰰ 愀渀搀 琀栀攀 昀漀漀搀 椀猀 猀漀 攀砀瀀攀渀猀椀瘀攀 愀渀礀眀愀礀⸀  吀栀攀 瀀愀爀欀 眀愀猀 瘀攀爀礀 挀氀攀愀渀⸀  䤀琀✀猀 爀愀爀攀 琀漀 最攀琀 挀爀漀眀搀猀 琀栀椀猀 猀洀愀氀氀Ⰰ 猀漀 䤀 爀攀愀氀氀礀 栀愀搀 昀甀渀 琀漀搀愀礀⸀㰀戀爀㸀਀㰀戀爀㸀਀ⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀ㰀戀爀㸀਀ⴀ䈀䤀䜀 䔀䐀

Hey BIG ED, you missed riding the Whizzer. A classic in its own right.

I do think its a classic, but it didn't open until 2, and after that the line was longer than I hoped it would be, and I wanted to get in more rides on B:TR and RB.
