Well, I FINALLY got back up to the nearest megapark to me (last time, May 5th) Magic Mountain. I went with 3 first-timers, so we hit almost everything. We stayed only 7 hours, blasphemy!! I wanted to at least stay until it got dark to see Goliath at night (and ride it) but no such luck.
First up, Goliath. We got in line at 10:30 (park opened @ 10:00) so most of the queue was filled. I have to hand it to the Goliath crew, 3 trains running and very little or no stacking. The ride is short, compared to all other hypers, and the line moved at a good clip. A full queue would take between 50-60 minutes, we waited 40. What a great ride, I wish it was longer, though.
Batman:TR. Slowest dispach in the park, that day. Stacking the 2 trains consistantly, ugh. The line was surprisingly short. One of my friends was too large to get the "crotch seat belt" to buckle, too bad. So what if it is a clone, keep it, keep it, keep it! Who knows if another new invert (read rumors section) will be as intense?
Colossus. Far from my favorite woodie. Back seat is passible. Only one side open, of course, only 2 trains running, of course. Short line, 10 minutes we got in 2 rides.
Riddler's Revenge. I was afraid my larger friend would be denied on this ride as well, but no, he fit. I heared a possible rumor that row 7 offered slightly more belt room, so we tried that row. Not sure if that was luck, or if the RR simply offers more room in general. (both B:TR & RR are B&M) I love this ride, soaring through massive loops, long course, glorious. I have never experienced leg cramps on this stander, and its the largest, I think.
Goldrusher. Mine train, yahoo. Walk on.
Psyclone. Back seat. First drop WOW!! rest of the ride OW!! This thing shook me to death, factor in the trim breaks and no air = boo hiss! Perhaps a DNR for next trip. SFMM NEEDS a CCI or CGI woodie before anything else, in my opinion.
