My sis and I arrived at 9:45 to once again see that we could walk straight to raging bull and re-ride 3 times yes 3, before the park officially opened at 10. We walked to demon what a surprise no line, easy re-ride. Then to AE no line but no re ride , awww. Then we went to Iron Wolf but got caught by the smell of the funnel cake foundry, mmmm. Iron Wolf only had a 5 minute line at 10:40 so we could see it was going to be a good day.
After that we walked along the boardwalk by Vertical Velocity, just to show my sis the power of this coaster. I've been on this ride 20 times and it still dosen't bore me. Though the line was full, we still passed and went to batman but half way up the stairs they said the ride was having a technical difficulty so we got out and headed to buy our fastlane.
Though i still think its a waste of money its worth it for someone who's never been on V2 or in our case the water rides, the heat index was 112 at 11:30! Went to BK and came back at 12.
We went to v2 used our first fastlane and got 2nd row in 5 minitues. then we headed over to batman the whole line was full but felt like we stood in line for about 10 minitues. Then heat was getting to us so we went to roaring rapids, used fastlane no wait. this ride got us soaked, with an employee shooting the jets of water on the raft and the waterfall it got us cooled of for about a minitue then the heat came back to us. went to shock wave no line, duhh! but i love this ride it dosent hurt my head and there never is a wait, i love you shock wave.
we went to Whizzer about a 10 minitue wait but this ride is so unique i cant go to the park and not ride it, its the last speed racer in america. Now for something amazing, we got to raging bull the line was short, 3 train op and when we got on the train we had only waited 5 minitues my god i love this ride to so we rode it about 4 times then decided to relax. we rode the train twice around the park got off and it was only 5:00 we still were going to be there and we have riden every coaster except AE blue which was down all day, "good blue side sux" me and my sis said which all of you would agree on from now on we would ride every coaster againg with many times on shock wave, RB, viper, and demon. to re count the day we rode,
Iron Wolf 2
American Eagle 2
Batman:TR 2
Shock wave 6
v2 2
whizzer 2
viper 4
Raging bull 13
demon 11
Great day at Great america though the highlite was to hear a kid say giant drop isn't working cause a guy fell out of it on he drop, i re informed him to say the counter weight broke and to hear someone say rolling thunder (r.i.p)flew out of the track and killed many.

How were you able to get into the park early before anyone else did?

Great America usually opens at around 9:30 even though it says 10. I went there before and the park was opened at 9:15 when it was suppose to open at 10.

Well when I went, they weren't letting people in. So do "they" let people in early on a certain day?

"They" is park managment. "They" almost always let people in early. Usually though you can't get in right away because of those damn metal dectectors! That slows everything down. I'm surprised that you were already on coasters by 9:45, because when I was there last, they had everything but Carousel Plaza and Orlean's Place still roped off.

I'm impressed that you got 2nd row on V2 in 5 minutes, even with a fast pass. Usually it breaks down when your standing on the stairs or in the station because it breaks down once every 10 minutes ;)

I was there Tuesday, and also got in around 9:30. I probably had my rides on V2 and Batman before 10:00.

How did I do it? I bought a ticket, and walked in.
