Report: My family got to the park around 1:00 and I immediately went to get my 2012 season pass processed. Both Superman and Green Lantern had pretty long lines, so I went on Kingda Ka first, which was a 15-20 minute wait with three trains running. Next I immediately went over to El Toro and was able to squeeze in four rides in total, followed by three rides on Bizarro, each with waits of less than 20 minutes. I attempted to ride Twister and I actually got on the ride, but it experienced problems before it could start up, so I wasn't able to ride it. Unfortunately, both the Parachute Tower and Slingshot were closed the entire day so I decided to go to the east side of the park. I was able to ride Batman: The Ride, The Dark Knight Coaster, and before the day was out, two rides on Nitro. I was also impressed that the new Skyscreamer was topped off recently and I think it's a nice addition to the park's skyline. After we had dinner outside of the park, I was able to fit in a ride on Green Lantern and I was about to ride Kingda Ka once again just 15 minutes before the park was supposed to close, but as I was about to get on, it experienced some technical difficulties so I left the park aggravated.

Overall, it was a satisfying day at the park. The weather was nice, the crowds weren't too big and I was able to obtain my 2012 season pass! Hopefully, all of the new rides will be open by the next time I visit the park.

Rating: 5.5 Flags out of 6

Ridelist: El Toro 4x
Bizarro 3x
Nitro 2x
Kingda Ka 1x
Batman 1x
Green Lantern 1x
Dark Knight 1x

I'm surprised it wasn't more crowded especially since the weather was nice. It sounds like you got a lot of rides in.

^I was thinking that too. Maybe its a similar situation to Viper@Gam's sign last year where they put up a temp. sign until the usual one is finished with rehab/repair?

I think that's Skull Mountain's new sign. It looks nice. I also like the "congo rapids" bushes.
