This was my first visit to the park and it was not a very good experience.

From the time that me and my dad left the house and walked into the park, took 5 hours. And i live only 2 hours away. After we got off of the turnpike, it took us 2 hours to get to the park because the traffic was backed up for MILES. This was just terrible! One little road leading into the park. But then when we were almost to the parking lot, something was not right with the car (of course). It would not shift out of first gear. So the rest of the way, we were going about 20MPH.

We finally reached the parking lot, and it was packed FULL! We had to park in the very last row in that little extra section. After the mile walk, we passed the ticket booths and went for the entrance because we had the free AOL tickets (i am glad we did not pay to get in, it is not worth it!).

The first thing we rode was Batman Knight Flight. This was my first floorless coaster. Of course we waited for the front. It was an awsome ride, but the floorless cars didn't realy make a difference. It just felt like any other B&M, but still awsome.

Next we rode Serial thriller. Waited for the front. But it had some problems. We had to wait an extra 20 min because someones shoulder restraint was stuck closed and they couldn't get it open. So they took it apart and got the guy out. I came off of this ride with a huge headache. I didn't like it too much, the inverted coasters made by B&M are MUCH better.

Next we rode Villain. This made the whole trip worth it! What an awsome coaster! I just wish it was not in that park.

After we rode Villain, we left. Because we didn't know if the car was still messed up, and we didn't want to get stuck in the traffic. I also noticed in the park that the midways are way to small. It is hard to even walk thorough there because all of the people. And i thought it was weird that they didn't have booths for the ride operators.

I can't say I blame you! This park is shameful and needs alot of work. I think they should have left it closed another year until they dealt with the operations aspect of the park. I won't EVER be going back.

Bummer you didn't get to ride Superman, it's a one of a kind experience.

I think you now know why I have never been to the park on a weekend this season. The sad truth is that they usually can't get it right when it's not busy; I don't even want to try it on a busy day.

Dosen't ANYONE EVER have a good time at this place? Man, I'm glad I'm going on a Tuesday with free AOL tickets. I'm trying to keep an open mind, but...

The problem is...They dont know what to do when its overly crowded. Like the parking situation, they will have 5 booths open but make it go down to one line to park. Once your in the parking lot its every car for itself, because noone guides you. Thats just half of it. It has GREAT potential to be a competing park with CedarPoint, its just their operations...well...suck!

I was there on Monday June 26.It was not crowded at all.BKF=15/20 minute wait.Villian=10 for the back seat.The SUE was opened with the park,but it
closed later in the day = no ops?
NEXT YEAR TRY THIS TIME TO GO and you might find you do like this park:).RWB was not open but Buzz
people seem to not like it.
BUZZ=He,He! I'm a big fan of the Drew Carry Show.
He once made a joke about MRS.Lauder and the MAGNUM-XL200.She was beeping the guy she "kept".;)
