Did you have a coasterbuzz shirt on?

If you haven't rode Raging Bull in the back row you haven't lived. The feeling on that first drop cannot be explained in words!

I see more and more TR's like this and it's becoming depressing. You could sum all that up in 3 lines.

How were the crowds at the park? Do you have an interesting stories about the day at the park? Who did you go with? Do you plan on going back? What did you enjoy the most? Why? What did you dislike about the park? Why did you dislike it? Do you plan on going back? Why? Why not?

All are simple questions that, if answered, may have made me feel like I didn't waste the 2 seconds skimming over your ride totals.

I can't wait to get to SFGAm to enjoy the park, and you can count on an actual report when I get back.

Sounds like a average day in the park to me. If you consider Demon being walk on a rare thing, your wrong. Its usually walk on or close to it most the season.

That was you in the coasterbuzz shirt? :)

I was there yesterday too, and it was actually one of the less crowded days I've been there this year. Not many school groups this time.

Raging Bull ran two trains all day, which seems odd to me, because I've never really seen it running less than three before this year, even when there are no lines. Maybe I just never took the time to notice. It was frustrating too, because sometimes the dispatch intervals were such that there wouldn't be a train in the station for a good 30 seconds, and sometimes the other train stacked on the final brakes for the same amount of time.

Viper is running well, but that's nothing new. Actually, I noticed that the bars didn't come up quite as much as they used to. Maybe I'm just imagining things, but I know I haven't been gaining weight (quite the opposite... Thank you...) and the bars don't give me quite as much room as I'm used to. Maybe I gained a click sometime...

American Eagle is still running great. I sort of prefer the forwards side (red) to the backwards side (blue, duh), but that's not to say that they should get rid of the backwards gimmick. It still shakes things up whenever you want that sort of thing.

Iron Wolf has never been rougher... Sadly... You can ride it, and I've given it many oppertunities, but the side to side headsmashing has gotten terrible. On the plus side, the OTSRs are much more cushy than those on B:TR.

Speaking of which, I still don't like it as much as Raptor, Great Bear, Montu, or DD (the other B&M inverts I've ridden), but it is sort of climbing back up my list of enjoyable rides. The back end is still really fast and really intense.

And for those of you who don't think that Superman is that fast, try riding it at night. I normally don't think that I succomb to the mind trick that darkness likes to play, but in this instance, I was really surprised. It felt much faster and more intense.

Why did you say the Iron Wolf crew was great? I felt they were the worst at the park. They kicked off a larger man that was fumbling with the seatbelt a little. Then at night, the station was completely empty and the two people we asked wouldn't allow us back on. If the station is completely empty, you should be allowed back on.

Because maybe he didn't witness those events and that crew was cranking people through *without stacking*, as usual. Honestly, that's impressive. Not even Cedar Point can do that with a much bigger ride.

Iron Wolf is definitely rougher this year than last. There's some major rattling in the track (bad wheels or a loose assembly is my guess); it's not rough transitions that are the problem. The rattling/shaking is annoying, but it doesn't cause any headbanging (at least not for me). As I said in another post, IW has *two* spots where it may cause you to hit your head (bottom of the first drop and in the flatspin). If you prepare for them, you'll be fine, and may actually enjoy this awesome little ride.

Holydumb, did someone comment to you in the Raging Bull line about coasterbuzz? Cause that was me. LOL, I hope you didn't think I was making fun of you. BTW, The ride op supervisor rode with my party and I on the last ride of the day for us. (since there were only 3 of us) It was fun to have a conversation with him throughout the coatster. He gave me some "insider" information. LOL yeah right Mark. He wouldn't tell me a thing. COOL GUY THOUGH!
