Short and sweet.

My wife and I got to the park Monday morning 10am.

Ran to Nitro. Just like we remembered it, airtime heaven! My favorite B&M. After 4 rides with less than 5 minute waits, we were off to Batman.

Batman: Nothing new here, just a great little invert.

Skull Mountain: It was open, so why not! Good starter coaster for kids.

Rolling Thunder: I really want to like this coaster, but it does nothing for either of us.

Viper: I had my doubts about this ride, but rode it anyway. No head banging, but WOW the neck cracking was unreal!

Back to Nitro for 2 more airtime filled rides. Man, I love that thing! After Nitro we were whiped, so back to the Red Roof for us.

4/02 Day 2

Walked through the gates at 10:10am

Went straight to Nitro. Almost no one in line! Sat in our row of choice, row 8 seat 3 and 4.
When we came into the station, nobody was in line for our row, so we rerode 4 more times without moving! The Nitro crew gets a big thumbs up from us. Thanks guys!

Next, Medusa: This is my least favorite floorless, I think the pacing is just to fast for me. Hard to comprehend all of the differant elements.

Next was, you guessed it! More Nitro! 3 more rides for us then it was back to Indiana.

It was a great trip. It doesn't take a genius to figure out our favorite ride.

Only been back an hour and already miss my buddy Nitro!

Did I mention, that I like coasters...

No we didn't even have a camera with us! Wish we did, because we saw Batman: The chiller valley right below the incline hill! What's the deal with that thing?

Yes, on 4/02 at about 1:30pm. We were walking to Nitro and I saw it go through the top hat, through the barrel roll, go up the incline. It went back down through the roll, then I lost sight of it. Next thing I saw was the train coming back up toward the incline hill, and then it started to valley!

At first I was glad just to see it move, but soon realized it was in trouble. I've been there two years in a row and never got to ride it.
