Kingda Ka:5 (3 in the front)
From your trip report it looks as if Great Adv. was able to address some of it's problems. I hope they can keep it up through the summer. That seems to be a problem...employee apathy. (No, not all of course, but enough of them seem to care less as the summer progresses)
Question From your point of view, how was the security, line-cutting, family atmosphere and cleanliness of the park? How was the quality and speed of the food service departments. (I konw the prices were high.) These are the other issues I have always hoped they would address on a CONSTANT basis throught the summer.
I was stunned how well Kingda Ka was being run. The four train operation was very efficient and sort of shocking how quickly you could get on.
To comment on the food service, I thought it was sort of poor. At the Nathan's hot dog shop they had one register open and people would try to get in line over and over and would give up because it was being handled at a snail's pace.
My only other complaint, with regards to Nitro is how in the world can you stack all 3 trains over and over and not even have seatbelts on the ride?! That was the only thing that really bothered me and was identically the same as my last visit 4 or 5 years ago.
In about 6 hours I managed:
2 rides on Kingda Ka (one front seat!), 1 ride on El Toro, 1 ride on Batman, 1 ride on Rolling Thunder (a bit painful), 1 ride on the mine train, 3 rides on Nitro, and a ride on Dark Flight.
I thought the park was cleaner than I remembered it and it was quite noticeable there was always a quasi security person/cleaning sweep person in sight and they definitely were trying to keep things clean.
I didn't see Medusa run at all while I was there.
I definitely will be back it was more fun than I thought it would be!
Edit: To comment on the $15 for parking - that seems outrageous but I guess I wasn't too bothered because I only paid like $45 bucks for my season pass renewal from SFMM when they had that one day internet promotion back in December... *** Edited 6/16/2008 3:54:57 AM UTC by JasonPSU20***
