First before I start talking my brains out I would like to say to anyone who lives in Northern Cali should really think about getting their Marine World pass. It's a VERY good deal. Anyway we got to the park about 30 minutes after opening which wasn't bad except later we found out that all of the workers of IN-N-OUT were there. So we got in and headed straight for Medusa and just by one look the line had to be about 2 1/2 hours long so we acted stupid and went on the mighty Cobra.

Cobra-6/10 Shocked to find out that Cobra was actually a good ride. We were in the back of the seat and the ride caught me off gaurded when I slamed into my little brother, and you get not one but TWO whole rides. So we decided that we were ready for the big boy rides now so went over to Kong.

Dinosphere-7/10 Finding that Kong also had long line we went on the nearest ride, Dinosphere. There wasn't that bad of a wait so we went on. Again shocked about how fun this ride was. I went on this ride last year when it didn't have 3D, but now that it does I even let out a little scream when the dinosuar was chasing us. Then we decided that we're actually going to wait for a ride and we chose Boomerang.

Boomerang 8/10-I love this ride, I don't know what you guys mean it's rough, I thought it was pretty snooth. I can't really talk that much about this ride since you guys all know how it is so I'll move onto the next ride.

White Water Safari Rapids-3/10 The Califorina sun was beating on us so we wanted to get really WET. So we awited in line for about 30 minutes got on a full raft and preapred to get soaked. While we were going on we noticed that the waterfull was turned off, we thought no big deal we'll get wet. We got off bareley even touched by the water, I was so MAD. So we stomed half of the way to Medusa

While we were walking to Medusa we say Monsoon Falls runnning and we saw a huge line but people standing on the bridge getting soaked, *HINT* *HINT* so we got on the bridge and got what everyone else got, SOAKED. We were so happy. And skipped the other half of the way to Medusa.

Medusa-11/10-First before we start I would like to say front seat is the only way to ride on this monster. We got on right after it was closed and were happy not to see such a long wait. We waited for the front seat when all these kids joined their friends and cut. I was soo mad so I asked them nicley and they said no and laughed, so I cussed thrreatened to tell the operator, but they didn't move. I hate beinbg a tattle-tail but if they asked or actually been nice about sure I wouldn't mind but they got me really ticked off so I told, and the operator did nothing. That got me mad until I got on. We left the station and climbed the lift, when we got the drop I was screaming. It was soo fun. With nothing below me and the wind on my feet I was having a blast. I don't want to explain the ride and my feelings because it this would be twice as long but I can say it was really fun! After riding the monster we went to Kong.

Kong-7.5/10 Kong was okay and standered Vekoma, but I can say one thing it sure seems rougher than last year. After the head aching ride we went on the last ride of the day ROAR!

Roar 10/10 Like Medusa there's a certain seat(s), my advice for you get as far to the back that you can. The ride pulls so many G's it seems like you gained 1000 while your on and the airtime is non-stop. The first drop is amazing and..........I won't go on cause it would be long but it was amazing.

Vertical Velocity- While we were leaving it looked like all the trains were on track but I couldn't see that well because of the stupid wall, but I can say one thing it does look very cool. So that is from me Neiller919. Bye Bye Now!

Glad you had fun! I have the season pass and I got it for less than 50 $ from Longs! It's 42.99 to get a General Admission! Plus you have to pay for parking! With the pass you get it free before 10 and after 5! ( or 5:30 not shure)

2 1/2 hours for Medusa! The year it opened I never saw that long of lines. As for Kong, it always has long lines when it really isn't a very good ride.

Hey I went there the day before you and Medusa was running rough, Kong was smooth, and Boomerang was running better than ever. Roar! still being my favorite ride in the park, I had the most fun on Boomerang. That is sad! Oh well, glad you had fun!
