VisionLand 7/7-Worst Time Ever

Associated parks:
None

Saturday, July 7, 2001 7:19 PM
After my last trip there, I never thought I could have had a worse time. I was wrong.
We origanaly planned to go around 5 and stay till 9 since the lines are always short then. I got too anxious so we left at three. We arrived at 3:30 and in a parking lot that will hold around 5,000+ and almost evry space was takin and there was about 12 busses.
WE got there at 3:30, left at 8:15 and only got 3 rides on Rampage.We first got to rampage and there was a thirty minute+ wait, even though there was 2 trains on the track. They ran one empty.We got on rode it then went to CS to complain.A supervisor came up and said they were then running the trains full.Then we went to stratos fear. while in line the restraints would not lock. So we decided to do something else.We got back to rampage and they had difficulties for a few minutes (which was good because a lot of people got out of line).We rode and the op made a fuss because I had on glasses(I always do). She got mine and the people behind us glasses and let evry one else wear theirs. The guy on my side of the train did NOT check any of the restraints. Then we spent the next 30 minutes shopping. We then went to Cahaba Falls log ride. The line was out of the que, which was well over a 2 hour wait. Wild River Gorge had a REALLY LONG wait. The ride is not worth it. We got in line for the Rampage again at 7 p.m. Around 7:10 the ride stopped. We thought ok not a long wait since last time it broke down the same way and it only took a few minutes to fix. 7:25: ride starts again. They test it until around 7:40. We were almost at the front since several people had left. At 8:00 they closed the ride. From 7:40 until 8 nobody did anything.
We decided to try to ride Stratos again. Again, the restraints would not fasten. I hope I never expirence anything like that again.

I can account for all that rampagelover has said. I was there (3:00pm - 7:30pm). It is true. I have never seen Visionland's parking lot so full of cars. The park was well over crowded (even though it was a Saturday - this is Visionland were talking about here). I got one ride on Rampage and didn't ride again because of the way they were handling the loading procedure. One car sat on the block brake forever while a bunch of dumb people that call themselves ride ops took there sweet time getting nothing done. The one time I rode it they didn't check my lapbar either. I don't know why it was taking so long for them to dispatch the trains, they didn't do anything but stick their thumb in the air. About the Screamers, I didn't have a bad ride on them all day. I rode each one twice. I like the way that area was developed. It opened up a new place for expansion. Anyway, I had a decent time there. If the park wouldn't have been so crowded it would have been better though.
