First ride of the day as always was Steel Venom. I did that 4 times then carried on to the rest of the park. I heard of the 'ejector' seat on Wild Thing for the first time this week and gave it a go. Holy Crap! On the first and second hills there was amazing air time! Probably the best ride on that ride yet this year. Went over to Power Tower and took two spins. I love sitting next to people who have never riden the ride before, it is alot of fun to tell them all about the ride. Anyways, after that I went of to the back of the park to ride Excalibur. That thing gets more violent every year. I felt a little shook up after that and slowly walked to the front again. I was about to ride High Roller, but descided not to after seeing its line. The crowds wer'nt to bad for the most part, usually walk on to 15 minute wait, thats normal for Valleyfair!.
I then went back to Steel Venom to marathon it for an hour or two. If only Valleyfair! could take out theAntique Cars ride. That could leave some very needed space for a nice B&M inverted roller coaster that could have big swooping turns out into the parking lot. So back to Steel Venom. Went on it ten more times in the next half hour, every time being a walk on. I then left around two thirty. Overall not a bad day at my home park.
Thanks for reading!
I agree with you on the antique autos. It takes up alot of needed space for a coaster, just like picnic cove and the waterpark. I don't know if Valleyfair! can afford to lose part of the parking lot for busy Saturdays though.
Well we'll see what they do for the next coaster in 1-3 years!
Maxil223 said:Why are high roller lines so long, they were long when I was there. Dont they ever run two trains?
They run two trains on most days. Its just just a pretty popular coaster. I mean its the only wooden coaster there and its a coaster that kids aren't afraid of and that all the family can enjoy, unlike some familys who don't all like the big rides like Steel Venom, Wild Thing, and Power Tower. *** Edited 6/7/2004 2:24:42 AM UTC by VenomThing***
It can't be. :)
I've heard that this years attendance is way down from last years. Well with rain the first 3 weekends how can't it be!
It did seem alot more crowded but thats just because of the good marketing for Steel Venom and the very good weather we had last year!
